    Facts? Who needs facts when you're on the national stage. Not the candidates apparently.

    Mitt also brought up the "Catholic Charities" being "force" out of the adoption business.

    They weren't "forced out". They chose to stop after being told they can't use taxpayer money, some of which if from glbt couples, and then deny adoptions to those very taxpayers. They could still operate if they want using either model 1) take tax money to operate and adopt to glbt couples, or 2) use their own funds and no tax money, and refuse to adopt to glbt couples. Either model is acceptable.

    All the candidates also supported forcing ALL glbt couples in America to be immediately divorced.

    Sad and depressing that Americans, especially those on the national stage, can be such craven cowards and bigots.

    Venture Capitalists like Romney are similar to parents. They invest money and time into various businesses and hope they will grow and prosper, much like parenting a child. Both VC's and parents can rightfully take credit for their "offspring's" achievements.

    After a child becomes an adult and leaves home and becomes successful, can't the parents continue to take credit for their child doing well? Likewise,a VC can take credit for a company they nurtured and that continued to grow after their direct involvement ended.

    Fact check: I think it is clear that when Romney is talking about the Massachusetts Supreme court he is referring their interpretation of the Massachusetts Constitution, which John Adams did help draft. Stop trying to find miscues where there are none.
