I'm as interested in how the left will treat this guy as I am how the right will.
The Loons will have to think this one over but I'm sure they will come up with something.
Most likely, if he's a better candidate than the one the Democrat party is offering, they'll vote for him.
Unlike most conservatives, liberals aren't afraid to vote across party lines.
He will be savaged like other designated victim group candidates who stray from their assigned roles on the liberal plantation.
If the GOP needs to discuss whether they are ready for a gay candidate then they are not ready.
If Richard Tisei is known as the gay candidate then they are not ready.
If his candidacy is discussed on the merits of his ideas and past work they are ready.
I know him personally. He's a terrific guy.
Perhaps but the Democratic Party had it's own issues bringing gays on board. Its interesting that Tisel thinks being gay in MA more readily accepted than being a republican in MA is.
Usually a candidate who is pro-choice, openly gay, and in favor of gay marriage. is not a Republican, and if he is he would be called a RINO...
He is diametrically opposed to what most of us see on a daily basis.. will Romney or Santorum come to his side and support him???
It's gonna be interesting. I don't think he's a Rino. He's pretty firm on opposing Obama care for example. I can see Romney supporting and respecting him but not Santorum.
Harry Reid is pro-life and leading of the dem senate.
When you run for office in this country, you're almost forced to label yourself a Coke or Pepsi. In some places, you almost have to be one over the other, in order to even have a chance of being elected. Such is politics in this country. That limitation tends to mean that inside each group you're going to have some members that don't march in lock step with company platform.
As for Mitt Romney and gays, Daniel Grabauskus says hi.
I know I am ready!!!!!
