Republicans may have discovered another presidential hopeful who is a uniter, not a divider. Outgoing Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has managed to bring together religious conservatives and homosexual activists. Unfortunately for Romney, they’ve joined forces to attack him for gay-rights inconsistencies.
Long before the national media paid attention, Massachusetts conservative activist Brian Camenker was warning anyone who would listen that Romney "has a long history of promoting and furthering the homosexual agenda" while Bay Windows, New England’s largest gay newspaper, was running articles titled "Mitt Romney’s secret gay history."
Did you notice that Romney has problems in his home state? Like former state party chair Jim Rappaport attacking him (here and here). It is getting blog coverage from Krusty Konservative, one of the leading conservative Iowa blogs:
Comments like these and his past statements on abortion from his past campaigns are going to give him fits here in Iowa. Pro-Romney people like to make excuses for his past remarks by saying that Romney was running for office in the bluest of blue states, and any Republican is better than a Democrat.
That sort of logic should worry any conservative. It seems as if Romney likes to wet his finger and see which way the wind is blowing instead of standing on principal.
If this meme sets in, it is over for Romney. Where’s Iowa Christian Alliance?
