    DAVID FRUM...Grenell is a fierce conservative who is also outspokenly gay. Grenell has taken strong public stances in favor of same-sex marriage. The Romney campaign knew all that when it hired him. Grenell had the competence to do the job, and nothing else mattered. As it shouldn't.

    The hiring came under attack. As attacks go, this wasn't much: A couple of obnoxious blog posts and a tirade by a local radio host who runs a third-tier social conservative group. Still, the campaign opted to take cover. It reduced Grenell's visibility, keeping him off a conference call with media where someone might ask about the social-conservative criticism, that kind of thing....

    If we think Romney caves to the far right now, just wait and see what a party the far right Christian Fundi's throw if he wins and then imagine what fits they'ed throw to get their 'god's way' if he were elected. They'ed by hell bent on 'bringing our country back to god' and we could all watch many of our freedoms and social progress go down the drain for their 'god' and country.


    I want no part of Romney nor is Religious far right, lets keep them as far from the sources of power as we can. Never in history has religion and government power been a good mix.

    I agree with you, I'm noting too that our repub Romney lovers are keeping quiet on this subject, facts are being exposed that just don't fit their picture of their Christian Ideological Mr Romney.

    Yes, the Romney lovers would support any Republican for President. If Santorum or Rick Perry were the nominee and they pledged to rid America of the gay scourge, these guys would rationalize it away and even campaign for them...just like they're doing with Romney.

    This is human nature. Denial and rationalization. It's like the Jews who voted Hitler in 1932, hoping their taxes would go down.




    Yup.
    It's the very human flaw of GREED.

    The Repub Romney lovers desperately want to hold on to their Bush tax cuts for the rich - plus they're drooling at the prospect of all the additional tax cuts for the rich that Romney and the Repubs have promised.

    All that GREED will compel the rich Romney supporters to open their wallets and pour buttloads of $$$$$$$$$$$ into the dirty Repub Super PACs.

    Are you referring to our very own conservaposse???

    Well....you know they have sooo much at stake. All that vast wealth they speak of....could be gone under Obama II, you know. They just aren't your average rich. From what they say, I'm led to believe that at least 4 of the 10 conservaposse are on the Forbes 400 list, with another one or two who married into it.

    Good to know that Obama will rip them off that list. Their wealth will be put to good use...reviving ACORN and putting Welfare Queens into lime green Cadillacs on dubs.

    LOL

    It is awfully nice of the fabulously wealthy conservaposse to grace us with their presence.
    In fact they spend a surprisingly large amount of their time slumming here on RJ with us common folk (and posting an endless stream of right-wing propaganda).
    They must be trust fund babies who live off Daddy's money - and who don't have to work for a living.

    However will they manage when their taxes go back up to where they were during the Clinton administration?

    Maybe they might actually have to get a job?

    We'd really miss seeing them spend SO MUCH of their time here on RJ!

    Well, you better enjoy it while you can. The angry black man is coming for it. icon_eek.gif

    The war starts on 1/21/2013. If he got Bin Ladin, inpoverishing the Koch brothers will be a snap.

    Lets hope without another election hanging over Obama's head, that he really takes on the issues in no uncertain terms that so plague our country and that are costing us so dearly.

    Yes, and may one of them be same-sex marriage. It's the worst kept secret in the world that he supports it. He just needs to come out about it.

    Oh that Romney. I'm not a fan of his. As for my tax dollars, I'll be perfectly happy if we are as successful at getting Dems out of the Senate as we were today at placing Senator Luger on the slide. (It's terrible having to bring income down to starve the Liberal Bastards.)

    America will vote and America will decide. I can live with that and America can live with her consequences.

    Yeah, but can America live with your beached whale body and brillo pad chest hair? *shudder*
