Unhinged libs falsely claim Romney will ban hospital visitation for gay couples

While oh-so-informed libs stock up on feminine hygiene products for the coming Tampocalypse, still others are spreading the rumor that the evil, heartless Mitt Romney plans to ban gay people from visiting their partners in the hospital. Perez Hilton accused Romney of “hateful discrimination” in a post titled “Mitt Romney Wants To End Hospital Visitation Rights For Same-Sex Couples.”

Sure thing. He’ll get right on that after outlawing tampons and the Dollar Menu. Since progressives are evidently appalled by using a little-known site called Google, GOProud’s Jimmy LaSalvia handles the research for them:

At Univision’s “Meet the Candidates” forum in September, Romney explained:

My view is this: that individuals should be able to pursue a relationship of love and respect and raise a family as they would choose. I would like to have the term “marriage” continue to be associated with a relationship between one man and one woman. And that certainly doesn’t prevent two people of the same gender living in a loving relationship together, having a domestic partnership, if you will. I can see rights such as hospital visitation rights and similar types of things being provided to those individuals. But marriage, to me, continues to be a relationship between a man and a woman.

But, you know, Perez Hilton says otherwise and frothing libs are running with his gross misrepresentation of a statement made by Romney surrogate Bay Buchanan. Progs aren’t ones to let facts get in the way of manufactured outrage.

Obama supporters: classy and smart. The president must be proud.

      I just sent this tweet to ALL of them calling that a LIE. I heard Romney myself say the words! “LIE. SO UNTRUE! He was one of the FIRST ppl to say visitation SHOULD be allowed as FAMILY. Come on. Smells of DESPERATION.

Your opinion (and distraction) that the contestant is a not a role model has nothing to do with why Hilton was rude to her. She didn’t agree with him; therefore, in the grand tradition of many liberals, called her names and made a fool of himself in doing so. This is a man who draws penises on people for a living.

    This is absolutely nuts, most hospitals are very liberal (sorry) about visitation rights for friends of patients, which is what a gay lover or spouse would fall under.

    • Strepsi

      How revolting to have to ask a hospital to treat me liberally as a “Friend” of a patient, when I am his husband! Married legally 9 years here, together 20, beating the odds of most straight marriages who AUTOMATICALLY have the RIGHT to be next-of-kin to their husbands. Sorry, this ‘kindness of strangers’ attitude you have is Jim Crow in new clothes. Federal marriage equality is the only way to ensure equal civil rights to all tax-paying citizen couples.

    • Guest

      As an RN, I have to take exception to that bit of misinformation. Hospitals have become very strict with visitation. Especially in acute situations.

    Here’s the exact quote: “”Governor Romney also believes, consistent with the 10th Amendment, that it should be left to states to decide whether to grant same-sex couples certain benefits, such as hospital visitation rights and the ability to adopt children.” You don’t think Mississippi or Alabama will ban hospital visitation rights?

    • TomJB

      Not if someone waves a power of attorney and/or a living will in front of hospital administrators. These things can be set up very cheaply online. Except for being able to file with the IRS as married (and that is not necessarily an advantage), any two adults can set themselves up with all the rights and privileges commensurate with marriage if they so desire.

        you do know what they do, right? They say “oh, our lawyer needs to look this over, and since it’s night time, you’ll have to come tomorrow” and then when you come tomorrow, the hospital says “oh, this power of attorney needs to be dated today, otherwise it’s not valid, you’ll have to come back..” It happens. There’s always a way for anti-gay folks to stall or roadblock.

    • tessaprn

      What? We here in the Great State of Alabama have more important things to do then monitor who visits who in the hospital! Damn we even let gay people work in our hospitals.

      • TomJB

        I admit I used to have that stereotypical view of AL and MS, but since I’ve been living in AL for a little over a year, that is all gone. Except for quite possibly having the least courteous drivers in the US, its no different than living in most of the rest of the country. Note to those in NYC and SF (yes, lived in/very near both): its your standards of living that are out of the norm.

  • http://mypoliticalintervention.com/ MPImedia

    As I’ve stated before, I don’t even understand the “hospital visitation” argument for same-sex marriage. I can’t think of one hospital that would deny visits to any loved one, related or otherwise.

    It just doesn’t happen.

    There’s no such thing as a hospital that is doing background checks to make sure only certain people get through the doors. Any healthcare facility doing so only runs the risk of hurting themselves in a healthcare climate that is already in jeopardy.

    • http://mypoliticalintervention.com/ MPImedia

      Lindsay Hirsch responded with an example, and now it looks as though it was removed, but I’ll respond anyway:

      I concede that I am mistaken about it never happening, but not that I am a “liar,” as you stated. I am speaking from years of healthcare experience. I’ve never seen it. I doubt I ever will.

      If out of 37 million hospital admissions *per year*, you can find a one or two historical examples of this actually happening, statistically you can’t say this is a common occurrence.

      Should it be for a particular facility, I do believe their practice should be publicly known. They are supposed to be in the business of care, regardless of who walks through the door.

Do you honestly think that Republicans won’t do everything in their power to roll back any progress made by the GLBT community? It happens every day; spouses of gay and lesbian patients are routinely kept away from their loved ones and denied the right to make critical decisions on behalf of an incapacitated partner.

    • SometimesWise

      Well, if you believe that’s true, then a) work on legislation on the state level – if you’re a citizen, you have the right to petition your representatives; and b) if you’re in such an awkward and backward state, make sure that you have a Power of Attorney set up so you can make decisions for your partner.

I live in Georgia, and I can assure you that if the opportunity arises for the conservatives in this state to stick it to the gay community, they will. All of the states I mentioned have already passed discriminatory amendments to their state constitutions to prevent marriage equality. Frankly, no one really knows how far they will go, but you can be sure it will be as far as they can possibly push it.

      • redheadgrl

        Replying to myself since I can’t respond to Cobalt directly:

        Marriage equality is a bogus issue. In that line of thought, I am discriminated against as a single. Damn it, I want the marriage tax deduction, too! I believe marriage shouldn’t be regulated by the state, but by the church. In my opinion, states should sanction all unions as civil unions, and leave the marriage certificates to the church. I live in GA as well, and I have yet to see any legislation passed on the state level that bans gay partners from visiting their loved ones in our hospitals. We also have many corporations in Atlanta that offer partner benefits.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    I wonder what part of “left to the states” liberals can’t comprehend.

    What the states decide does not necessarily reflect what Romney personally believes, but ill-informed liberals would rather run around saying Romney is personally against hospital visitation rights anyway.

    Spreading lies: That’s the left’s modus operandi, especially when they’re desperate.

    • civet

      They believe the states, like individuals, who don’t agree with their ideas need protecting from themselves. I’m from Alabama, so I’m an easy target for “understanding and open-minded” liberals. I am all for the rights even if I don’t agree with same-sex marriage. However, if my state votes contrary to how I feel, I accept it and work to change it through legislation in the future if it means that much to me. I don’t throw a fit and accuse my political opponents of heresy while crying for the feds and the court to intervene. If another state votes contrary to my beliefs? Whatever. Not my state.

      From that they focus solely on “don’t agree with same-sex marriage” and claim I am ignorant and hateful and I can’t be trusted to decide anything without their benevolent guidance. Oh, and as long as we’re at it, I must be racist to boot, right?

      They’re just trying to demonize Romney with whatever straw they can grasp. I’ve seen it done so often, it’s actually getting quite boring.

  • BobSF_94117

    A relationship with no legal status is like no relationship at all.

    Romney’s “support” for gay couples is like saying he certainly wouldn’t mind if the starving ate something. If they could find something to eat.

    • civet

      I don’t think it’s like saying that at all. I think it IS saying he feels the states should decide. In fact I know it’s saying that because that is literally what it said. And equating not getting married to starving to death is pretty melodramatic, would you say? I mean, come on. This isn’t junior high. Get some perspective.

      For what it’s worth, I would “support” – are the kids putting quotes on that word now? – a legally binding civil union granting the rights at issue to same sex couples. I just would support it in my own state. The other 56 can make up their own minds.

      • BobSF_94117

        I have the perspective of 30+ years of a relationship with no legal recognition that has cost pain and money on a scale you cannot fathom. No, it isn’t “starving”. I didn’t starvation because it’s on the same level, I picked it because it clarifies how meaningless it is to oppose something and DO NOTHING to fix it.

        If you want states to decide, it means it’s OK with you for some states to violate people’s rights. How about we let states decide on slavery? Miscegenation? Anti-semitism?

        • civet

          You dont know me so you shouldnt assume what pain I can or cant fathom. How do you surmise that it’s okay with me for some states to violate anyone’s rights? If I support a binding civil union, then I obviously support that in all states, but being a resident of only one state, and supporting the constitution as well, I will worry about my state.
          My hope is that all states will address the issue positively. The reality is that it will be addressed at varying degrees and levels of success. If a state doesn’t handle it to your liking, don’t go/live there. Not comparing the two situations, but simply as a matter of rights, there’s a reason I choose to live in a state where the second amendment isn’t violated

          • BobSF_94117

            I am not talking about YOU. I’m talking about Romney. Letting states decide on same-sex marriage is like letting states decide on slavery. In both cases, you are saying it’s OK for some citizens to be treated differently.

          • civet

            As much as it may seem to you, same sex marriage and slavery are nowhere near the same thing so I refuse to recognize the comparison. Since I also believe states should decide, and since Romney isn’t here, I’m responding where a response is warranted. If you post, you should expect that sometimes.

            YOU are saying I’m saying its ok for some citizens to be treated differently. I’m saying states should decide on this, and most, issues. You are just too emotionally involved to settle for anything but absolute agreement with your belief.
            You and I won’t sway each other on this issue so I’ll leave it at that for my part. I wish you no ill though.

          • BobSF_94117

            Look, YOU pick a civil right you see as similar to marriage and I’ll see if I can make my point with it.

            As for YOU representing Romney since he’s not here, stop putting forth YOUR positions and put forth HIS. You could start with explaining why the country needs a constitutional amendment that would not only ban same-sex marriage and civil unions but VOID the ones that already exist.

            Sure doesn’t strike me as letting individual states decide.

          • civet

            Not representing Romney. Just responding to your initial faulty analogy. Can’t address your above request because, like I said. I don’t really have an issue with making sure all the rights (visitation, benefits, etc.) are guaranteed to all; civil unions being the point where Romney and I part ways on the issue, but I believe he’s shown support for basic rights.

            You’re arguing legal gay marriage and I’m arguing Romneys comment as it pertains to states rights. We’re definitely not going to find much common ground if you can’t cede that I already agree with some of your point (granting specific rights) even if not gay marriage itself. Actual “marriage” being something I view as a religious institution and not a civil right. That’s why I have to call bullshit on the slavery comparison.

            While a little presumptuous about what you think you know about me, you haven’t been a typical liberal ahole so it’s been interesting and i appreciate the debate. Still we’re both wasting time that could be better spent elsewhere. With all sincerity, take care and best of luck to you Bob.

          • BobSF_94117

            You continue to fail to grasp that “allowing states” to pick and choose civil rights obliterates the idea of what it means to have a right.

            Romney and you, leaving things to the states, means that you support some states violating the civil rights of their citizens. Also, you greatly exaggerate Romney’s support for even limited rights. Ignoring how odious it is to say that some states may keep dying patients away from their loved ones, that very limited thing he would support — while being perfectly OK with other states NOT supporting it — is one of less than a handful of “favors” he would allow gay people to accept.

          • civet

            Not agreeing with your point EXACTLY is not “failing to grasp” anything. To your mind, you’re a soldier in some war and there is no middle ground.
            No matter what you wish and no matter what primetime tv pushes on the public, same-sex relationships are not the “new normal”. Everything that society is not set up to readily accommodate you on EXACTLY as you want is not necessarily a civil rights issue. I’m not saying it isn’t sometimes, but you obviously view everything through an extremely narrow prism. Even in Alabama, an advance directive will grant medical decision authority which would necessarily include visitation. Not the same path as marriage, but in the end, the legal rights are granted. I’m sure that won’t do for you, though, will it? Someone else’s religious institution has to be desecrated in their eyes before you’ll be satisfied. Talk about forcing your beliefs on others.

            You’re stuck on telling me, incorrectly, what I support and what I mean and you-like most liberals-are beginning to get too emotional in the argument and are twice as fallacious and half as clever as you think you sound. To say I support any states violating civil rights is ridiculous on its face and a pretty stupid argument.

            I don’t wish to grapple with you over this eternally which is all that would happen if we continue, so for the third time, I’ll agree to disagree and wish you well.

            No matter what you say, the Supreme Court has held that civil marriage is a constitutional right, a civil right. You can feel otherwise, of course, but your feelings about it aren’t germane. You support the idea of a state being able to tell a citizen that the relationship most fundamental to our humanity (SCOTUS words, not mine) can be banned.

            As for your Alabama medical directives, if you followed the gay press, you would regularly read stories about hospitals violating those directives and all sorts of other legal documents when it’s a gay couple.

            If you don’t want to continue grappling, stop insisting on having the last word.

            Take care, Bob.

          The Gay agenda is about imposing their viewpoints on those who disagree with them.

          Use your sob stories to get the “gay rights” then use those same rights to take away free speech and freedom of religion from others.

          This has happened in EVERY COUNTRY that “gay rights” has become law. EVERY COUNTRY. NO EXCEPTION.

          Preacher preaches from the Bible. big $ fine.
          Oh look, a Christian wants to practice his faith by not aiding and abetting sin. TAKE AWAY HIS LICENSE. File frivolous “human rights” charges against him and bankrupt him.

          And so on and so on.

          • BobSF_94117

            If a preacher, in Sweden or Canada which do not have our strong first-amendment rights, calls for death to homosexuals and slanders them with lies, he is subject to arrest, just like a preacher who does the same to Jews. It’s the right of countries to determine the rights of their citizens.

            Here, we have preachers of the sort you like disrupting the funerals of military service members to rant about gay people. Perfectly constitutional and protected.

            As for my forcing you to violate your religious beliefs by making you abet sin, those same laws force me to abet your silly religious beliefs. It’s a two-way street. A psychologist who, say, insisted that belief in Mohammed was a sign of demonic possession and applied that belief in his or her professional practice would face the same censures.

            So on and so on, indeed.

    Mitt Romney’s a MORMON lunatic and you stupid miserable self-loathing gay REPUBLICANS are HAPPY to whip yourself bleeding with his disdain for you. Sorry that you’re masochists but you like it.

  • BeeKaaay

    If someone says something outlandish about Romney, leftwingwackos will believe it, without any proof, without even thinking or using a fraction of a brain cell to process it.

    Leftwingwackoism is a cult of brainwashing.

  • tazz602

    Bay Buchanan, who last week said,
    “Governor Romney also believes, consistent with the 10th Amendment,
    that it should be left to states to decide whether to grant same-sex
    couples certain benefits, such as hospital visitation rights and the
    ability to adopt children.”

  • Penmar

    Yes we do because that’s how our constitution is setup, you might want to try reading it sometime. Fed Gov’t has 10 enumerated powers, the rest belong to the states.

  • Darth_Venomous

    Why don’t you go ask the over seven million in
    California that voted for Prop 8 how they felt about having it “stuck”
    to them by your and your fellow rump-rangers via a federal
    judge
    black-robed tyrant?

    But I guess sticking it to us in that fashion was okay, now wasn’t it?

    (Is this one okay to post, mods? What’s next – hall passes to go to the little boy’s room?)

  • civet

    Full disclosure: I’m from Alabama so you, in all your enlightened glory, will probably want to unfairly discount my opinion right about….now.
    Most things, including the marriage debate, should be left to the states. That was kind of the whole point of the constitution. The feds and the courts were meant, by and large, to stay out of things.

    I myself believe marriage is between man and woman but I also believe same sex couples shouldn’t be denied ANY rights. If a civil union provides those rights, I’m fine with it. That’s just my opinion – although you strike me as the type to call it “spewing hate” since it probably isn’t lock-step with what you believe. Although its at least as valid as your opinion. Probably more so since you can’t make your argument without being snide. I’m betting you’ve never spent any time in the south judging from your
    stereotyping. That’s a mighty broad and misinformed brush you paint with. Ironic, isn’t it?

  • Iacobus

    Oh, that was clever.

    Don’t you have a bridge to live under or something?

  • redheadgrl

    This isn’t a news site, Tjay, it’s a site that gathers popular tweet, usually with a conservative bent to the listing, commentary, comments. I haven’t found anywhere on Twitchy where they claim to be a news outlet.

  • TJay229

    No, Trolls and Gremlins like you live under things (i.e Rocks, caves,Bridges etc etc) I live on top. U BedBug.

  • SoCalVet

    Prop 8 is going DOWN. get over it.

  • rustywheeler

    Sure, if you ask the 6.4 million who voted against it. BTW: CA State population is 37 million. So your policy was decided (unconstitutionally) by 18% of the population.

  • http://twitter.com/Hdtex1 Hdtex

    Thank god!

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    I can only assume your crassness is a knee-jerk reaction to having the stupidity of liberals on display for the world to see. Breitbart may be gone, but his legacy lives on, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

  • Iacobus

    Oh, I’m so broken now. Whatever shall I do?

    BTW, to the peeps down voting not only mine but just about every other commenter slamming this story: You guys are awfully insecure to even care. But, hey, welcome! We needed cat toys!

  • djshawman

    Tjay229. LOLOLOLOL. I love it when liberals make an attempt to argue. Your argument is basically “So! Michelle Malkin is a blogger too, so there!”

  • Guest

    No, just reminding you that the man was so hollow and evil that even he couldn’t stand himself…had to do so much alcohol and cocaine every day just to get through it.

  • TJay229

    I had to make it simple and easy enough for the mind of A REPUGNANTcan, most only listen to FAUX NEWS, Heads in the ground.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    You’re talking about Obama, right?

  • Iacobus

    Wait, didn’t Breitbart’s toxicology report show he had no drugs in his system?

    Oh, wait. That kind of critical thinking would require a brain and a basic search on Google, which you apparently lack. (I’m sorry I had to do this but you forced my hand.)

    Oh, BTW, I see your page hijack and call (moderators might want to check this out):

    “SoCalVet posted a comment in Joe. My. God.: You People Are “Unhinged” For Believing The Words Of Bay Buchanan · an hour agoPlease go over there and rate down some of their comments…our side is catching up over there…sorta fun to see OUR opinions get voiced.”

  • tessaprn

    Who are you talking about? Breitbart? This just goes to show how stupid and hateful people such as yourself are. He died from a heart attack and autopsy showed no drugs in his system. Liberals sure are a bunch of cold hearted bastards. Can’t come up with factual statements so just make them up as you go along.

  • Darth_Venomous

    Sure, if you ask the 6.4 million who voted against it.

    Hmm. I see basic math is a little beyond your comprehension. Typical libtardia.

    BTW: CA State population is 37 million.

    So? Your point? Other than the one on top of your head, that is?

    So your policy was decided (unconstitutionally) by 18% of the population.

    So much for you libtards kvetching about “overturning the results of an election”.

    Why do you hate democracy?

  • Iacobus

    “Faux News”! That is *so* witty! Did you come up with that yourself?

    Hey, do you pronounce it just like, “Fox,” too? I can never get those silly French words right!

  • Darth_Venomous

    So democracy’s void where black robes prohibit it, is that what you’re saying? Bitch about us “imposing our morality” on you and your butt-buddies, but it’s okay to impose your immorality on us, right? And if you can go judge-shopping to get it enforced, so much the better?

    Hypocrite much, simp?

  • TJay229

    Why yes… but being a miserable REPUGnacan the closest to anythi g “French” is the musard you use, The only other culture you may have is from cheese or yogurt.

  • Guest

    no Obama is still alive, and PRESIDENT, remember? Facts are hard for republicans.

  • Guest

    don’t like to have to hear the opinions of the other side, do you? LOL…pull your head out of your arse!

  • Iacobus

    Oh, no, on the contrary. I *love* debate. I just wanted readers to know of your intentional page hijack and think it’s odd that you have to pull such a stunt.

    Carry on.

  • Guest

    “intentional page hijack” File a report with the FBI! Call the police! /whatever

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    But the description sure fit Obama.

  • Iacobus

    Why are you here then, other than to keep spewing the same quote over and over again and then up voting it?

    That’s not debate, for sure. It’s called being a jackass.

  • Guest

    I’m in good company then…just trying to keep up with all the right wing jackass comments. Carry on!

  • $21367552

    Well obviously not every person from the South is an unenlightened hick, nor is everyone from outside the South a reasonable, progressive friend of equality, sorry if my comment made you feel that I painted with that broad of a brush, but judging from the results of past ballot initiatives and the ugly rhetoric that accompanied the pushes for constitutional amendments limiting marriage and in some cases civil unions for same-sex couples, and comparing the numbers from southern states from those outside of the south, yeah overall you’re not from a bastion of enlightenment nor from a place that has proven itself to be on the right side of history with respect to ANYTHING.

  • Iacobus

    Oh, noes! A quote about wanting to give states the power they should have in the first place! Teh horror!

    By the way, friends, you might want to take stock in the fact that this is practically out of Twitchy’s cycle since the stories move so fast. (I mean, really, only you guys care at this point.) You are essentially in an echo chamber. Congratulations in patting yourselves on the back.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Glenn-Lupton/1486149010 Glenn Lupton

    So where in that statement did it state that Romney is going to end visitation rights? Can you provide the exact section of the statement?

  • civet

    Your comment didn’t make me “feel” anything. It just told me everything I needed to know about you.
    At this point I’ll just agree to disagree with you in general and on principle and bid you a good afternoon.

  • tessaprn

    Fellow you are the only one at the moment showing any jackass comments.

  • Guest

    that’s your lame opinion. Might work on reading comprehension.

  • Porkie

    Got move quickly before the facts catch up with you!

    It’d be fun to write something about staying classy and compassionate to try to shame you into resembling something like a human being – but it’s quite clear that’s one thing you clearly lack.
