"[Romney] has demonstrated that he believes we're a part of America. I know that you want to talk about this issue and the president wants to talk about this issue because the president's record on jobs and the economy and the debt crisis is indefensible. And I know that's why all the liberals in Washington and across the country want to talk about issues like gay marriage and contraception and everything else to divert attention from the issues that are facing us all."

-- GOProud's Jimmy LaSalvia defending his group's endorsement of Mitt Romney on the Young Turks even though the candidate has promised to push a federal marriage amendment and start a McCarthy-style witch hunt of the LGBT community.
