(CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Thursday that while he opposes same-sex marriage, he is "fine" with gay couples adopting children. The presumptive nominee also declined to criticize President Obama's reversal on the issue, saying he would "respect the right of the president to reach the conclusion he has."

Good on him.

A loving home is a loving home, and there are a LOT of neglected children out there with a VERY bleak future if they can't find themselves a forever home.

In addition, it will help inflate the 'children in unmarried household' statistics that conservatives occasionally crow about.

I wonder if the GOP is going to endorse gays adopting children. Perhaps they'll make it a platform plank and run a few commercials on it.

Romney just doesn't know when to shut up. Obama hands him the conservative religious vote and he throws it away with this. Politically, he's a moron.

OMG Romney is a fracking moron. He is a STUPID man.

Gay marriage ( or whatever) is coming, it is, as it should be. But Romney just gave up a big chunk of voters. He is a freakin idiot.

I'll take a stab. I would personally say that gays adopting and raising children is probably worse than them getting married. At least with marriage it's only the two of them. When gays adopt children, it affects the child's brain (IMO). I don't think the child can have a fair upbringing with two dads or two moms. I understand that single parents raise children all the time, but at least in those situations the child has access to media/tv to acquire a role model for their sex. No dad? The kids in the ghettos look to rappers.

Two moms? Look up the 12 year old child who has mutilated his own genitals. His parents have authorized hormone therapy to allow him to become a woman. Of course this is all blamed on hormonal imbalances and the child's genetics. Nobody ever thought that maybe raising a boy with a female mother and female father figure would destroy the child's self identity. After all, how hard can it really be to look in the mirror every day and see a male sex organ when both your parents don't have one. It's not like you'd try to emulate them or anything.

At age seven, after threatening genital mutilation on himself, psychiatrists diagnosed Thomas with gender identity disorder. By the age of eight, he began transitioning.
This summer, he started taking hormone-blocking drugs, which will stop him from experiencing puberty.

Clearly an isolated incident.

More proof for my theory than much of homosexuality is the result of childhood trauma. With all the broken homes our society is manufacturing gays.

we would be better off if those who do the deed would step up and take care of their business...Just because children are adopted into a loving home doesnt mean there wont be problems down the road...eventually as kids get older they start wondering why they were given up, and the desire to know who the biological parents were...

it does not say anything like that in my post, kids would be better off if the biological parent that had them would raise them...unfortunately personal responsibility is out of the window today. I served with a couple of guys who never knew their father or mother or both...even though they had been adopted by people that cared for them the fact their parents chose not to be in their life haunted them.

Adoption gets to be a little sticky.

Won't the kids be traumatized when they find out they really have a mother and a father instead of two mommies?

I know two gay couples who have raised a child a piece. Both kids were "born gay" and are total fruits.

Poor kids didn't even have a chance.

If you want to do something that doesn't hurt anyone else, you should be free to do it. Gay marriage doesn't hurt anyone else so they should be free to do it. I don't know if a gay couple adopting hurts the child or not, but can see how it could, so I lean against it.

Maybe it would be like finding out your parents were actually white instead of the mixed race people who raised you. I actually don't know.

If we have too many parentless kids, and not enough parents who want them, then a gay couple who are trying to be good parents has to be better than growing up in an orphanage.

I think it's an excellent comparison. Homosexuality is a cancer to society.

But there is one unanswered question in this debacle.

Thanks.Absolutely! So I guess the "solution" is to vote GOP and put them in charge!

Assuming we are brain dead and don't know reality......

Ever hear a republican list EXACTLY what they will cut to balance the budget? Exactly.... they run like a rabbit.

Borrowing and spending the GOP way


The big deficit facing the U.S. is mostly Republican in origin, the Congressional Budget Office says. The Bush tax cuts alone have added $3 trillion in red ink, yet the party wants to double down on its failed policy.



///// the Republicans have offered no viable alternative.
The failure of our leaders to offer realistic budget proposals was a major reason I decided to retire after 28 years in Congress, most of them as a professional staff member on the Republican side of both the House and Senate Budget Committees. My party talks a good game, railing about the immorality of passing debt on to our children. But the same Congressional Budget Office that punctured Obama's budget also concluded that the major policies that swung the budget from a projected 10-year surplus of $5.6 trillion in 2001 to the present 10-year deficit of $6.2 trillion were Republican in origin.
Consider the two signature GOP policies of George W. Bush's presidency: the wars and the tax cuts. Including debt service costs, Bush's wars have cost about $1.7 trillion to date. Additionally, as part of being "a nation at war," the Pentagon has spent about $1 trillion more than was expected in the last decade on things other than direct war costs, which has been a bonanza for military contractors but a disaster for the federal budget. And finally, there has been another trillion dollars spent domestically in response to 9/11, including spending on such things as establishing the Homeland Security Department and increasing the budgets for the State Department and the Veterans Administration.
The Bush tax cuts have added another $3 trillion in red ink. While Republican leaders wail that Americans — particularly their rich contributors — are overtaxed, the facts say otherwise: U.S. taxpayers, particularly the wealthiest, pay far less in taxes than they would in most other developed countries. Today, the 400 wealthiest Americans have as much wealth as the bottom 125 million. The GOP insists that those wealthy people use their money to create jobs, and that taxing them more heavily would ultimately hurt the economy. But, if that's so, why was the rate of job creation in the decade after the Bush tax cuts the poorest in any decade since before World War II?
Like a drunk swearing off hooch for the hundredth time, Republicans are now trying to show they are serious about controlling the deficit by saying they won't raise the debt ceiling unless they get through some of their cost-saving projects, like privatizing Medicare. Meanwhile, they want revenue increases "off the table," even though, at 14.8% of GDP, revenues are at their lowest level in 60 years. And the budget passed by the Republican-controlled House further cuts taxes on the wealthy, a fact it glosses over with optimistic growth forecasts.
Raising the debt ceiling isn't, as the GOP tries to say, Congress giving itself permission to continue excessive spending: It's something that's necessary to pay for past congressional decisions on taxes and spending, and those decisions were made primarily when Republicans were in charge.

I don't see what you're getting so worked up about. I just posted a link about Republican nominee for President saying he was fine with two gay men adopting a baby.. maybe even your grandchild.

No need to start projecting your emotions of fear- I've heard the same claim of fear about anyone the far-right has a crush on at the moment. It always makes me chuckle.
