The ramblings of Mitt Romney's campaign will tweet out their opposition towards it and say that it's another landmine to distract from the economy.
Eventually rappers, conservative activists and Black clergy leaders will voice concern.
Once again the issue of gay marriage is controversial. Conservatives allied with the Religious Right and even some in the Black community are going to fight harder to make sure marriage is between one man and one woman. And they will use this as a distraction to defeat President Obama.
