Repudiation: Republican Bigotry, Thinly Disguised

As the 2012 Republican contenders heat up their debates, I was expecting to hear Mr. Romney and Mr. Santorum sound different on the topic of marriage equality.  The following clip from Think Progress.

Each of them, the former Governor and the former Senator, says, effectively, "I do not discriminate."  The details of their words, including in the pledge they each signed against equality for the Family Leader, belies the facade.  Is there a big difference between Mr. Romney and Mr. Santorum, the two front runners coming out of Iowa?

Each of them failed in their most recent attempts at federal office.  Each of them is wealthy from Washington and Wall Street.  While Mr. Romney is better known for his flip-flops, Mr. Santorum's history is nearly as rich (if you will pardon the pun).

Either way, if either man is elected, get ready for big social government and austerity for those who can least afford to tighten their belts.
