I am positive Romney knows not only that airplane windows do not and cannot open, but also why this might be so.
I am not positive about his core feelings toward a woman's right to orchestrate her own physical decisions on abortion or any other medical procedure.
I also am soundly uncertain about the veracity of Obama's plans for gay rights. Offering a public statement of support while backed against the wall does not an authentic freedom make.
Of course, I am well aware of the economy we all are experiencing.
I am reminded often that civil rights must temporarily step aside for the financial good of all Americans.
Economies must first grow, people must have jobs.
I obviously don't subscribe to the bracketing of freedom, while working to put our financial house in order.
However, shouldn't we be zeroing in on these issues, rather than pretending to gasp in horror that Romney wants to open the windows of a smoke-filled airplane?
He obviously was giving a public response to the potential horror of losing his wife.
Just as Obama is obviously holding hands with Michelle on the Barbara Walters daytime television program, The View, to indicate his devotion and closeness with his wife.
