LGBT pundits react to Romney’s debate riff on two-parent families

Presidential debate

A number of LGBT bloggers expressed dismay Tuesday night that no question about same-sex marriage was posed during the first two presidential debates or in the only vice presidential debate.

But at a most unexpected moment during the Oct. 16 debate, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney stumbled into an awkward riff about the importance of two parents being married before having children.

That set off a flurry of reaction among various LGBT bloggers who were posting their reactions to the debate live on Twitter.
