Mitt Romney comes out against online poker

Romney also said he doesn't support legalizing online gaming. He's says he's against it because of the social costs and people's addictive gambling habits.

Just wait a couple weeks until he changes his mind and comes out for online gaming. I am not joking either.

This isn't all that shocking. When will people realize that establishment Republicans are not actually for freedom or limited government, let alone Mitt Romney? He's basically Obama-lite.

The people who thought Romney would be good for poker are the same who thought Obama would be good for poker. Keep dreaming fellas.

Well, they are the only two candidates left. Unless of course you are dreaming.

This hasn't been such a good week for potential i-poker legislation news.

I think good for and just for are 2 different things. Unless he doesn't think he will be the GOP candidate, there is isn't much upside to this. He will already get the social conservative vote. He has the most money. It doesn't make much sense to me. Idk why he answered at all with this response.
