It's disappointing Mitt Romney and his campaign did not strongly support their foreign policy spokesman, Richard Grennel.

Mr Grennel had had a taste of what Pat Tilman must have felt in his final moments...

Iím surprised he was able to keep his job for as long as he did (less than two weeks). Romney will have to have anyone he wishes to employ first vetted by the GOP social conservative party members.

You are probably right -- which suggests a great deal about Bishop Romney's alleged "leadership."

A "President" Romney would probably require that all bills he signs have the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur of the Tea Party visibly attached -- so that he can demonstrate to them that such bills are free of doctrinal or moral error.

Yup -- a POWERFUL LEADER. NOT!!!!!!!!!!

READ the ARTICLE:


Before joining Romney's campaign, Grenell was a prolific - and inflammatory - voice on Twitter, posting biting commentary on subjects ranging from Newt Gingrich's weight to Michelle Obama exercising in the White House.

By the time he joined the campaign, many of his most provocative musings on Twitter have been deleted. He had been spokesman of the U.S. mission to the United Nations during George W. Bush's presidency.

Obama and the Decline of the American Civil Liberties Movement


By (D) Jonathan Turley
Published 1, September 29, 2011

President Obama not only retained the controversial Bush policies, he expanded on them. The earliest, and most startling, move came quickly. Soon after his election, various military and political figures reported that Obama reportedly promised Bush officials in private that no one would be investigated or prosecuted for torture. In his first year, Obama made good on that promise, announcing that no CIA employee would be prosecuted for torture. Later, his administration refused to prosecute any of the Bush officials responsible for ordering or justifying the program and embraced the ďjust following ordersĒ defense for other officials, the very defense rejected by the United States at the Nuremberg trials after World War II.

Obama failed to close Guantanamo Bay as promised. He continued warrantless surveillance and military tribunals that denied defendants basic rights. He asserted the right to kill U.S. citizens he views as terrorists. His administration has fought to block dozens of public-interest lawsuits challenging privacy violations and presidential abuses.

But perhaps the biggest blow to civil liberties is what he has done to the movement itself. It has quieted to a whisper, muted by the power of Obamaís personality and his symbolic importance as the first black president as well as the liberal who replaced Bush. Indeed, only a few days after he took office, the Nobel committee awarded him the Nobel Peace Prize without his having a single accomplishment to his credit beyond being elected. Many Democrats were, and remain, enraptured.

Itís almost a classic case of the Stockholm syndrome, in which a hostage bonds with his captor despite the obvious threat to his existence. Even though many Democrats admit in private that they are shocked by Obamaís position on civil liberties, they are incapable of opposing him.

It looks more like a cult of personality. Obamaís policies have become secondary to his persona.

Mitt had Gay People in his MA government, Registrar of Motor Vehicles, and MBTA. Both were important jobs and they were well done. These jobs are not being done well under the new Democratic led state. I dont think anyone cares if you are Gay so long as you do the job. Take the column as nothing since the writer did not get a reason for his departure.

You don't think anybody cares if you are Gay??? That's because you are in Massachusetts & most of us here don't care. But that wouldn't be a good bet in some parts of our great nation.

Some people don't like you no matter what and you simply deal with it.




Grenell also raised the ire of liberal commentators with now-deleted tweets about certain prominent women. Notice how no one mentions that?

Just look at the rabid left's attack on Romney for his religious beliefs. Smart people want someone that can do the job and aren't necessarily concerned with the religion or sexual orientation just as long as they aren't bringing in the Colombian Hookers.
