Romney Tells CPAC: I Prevented MA From Becoming The Las Vegas Of Gay Marriage

During his speech to CPAC on Friday, Republican hopeful Mitt Romney flouted his social conservative credentials to a receptive audience. “Now, you may recall that during my term in office, our conservative values came under attack, less than one year after I took office, the Supreme Court found a right to same-sex marriage in the constitution written by John Adams!” Romney riffed. “I presume he would be surprised! I fought to have a stay on that decision, then pushed for a marriage amendment. We lost by only one vote. I successfully prohibited out- of-state couples from coming to our state, and getting married. We fought hard and prevented Massachusetts from becoming the Las Vegas of gay marriage!”

Romney’s rhetoric condemning gay marriage comes on the on the heels of the former Massachusetts governor being repeatedly pelted in the face with glitterby LGBT activists at various campaign stops, and drew uproarious approval from the crowd.

“When I am President, I will preserve the Defense of Marriage Act,” Romney affirmed. “I will fight for a federal amendment defining marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman.”
