MetroWeekly.com is exposing the whole truth that Washington Post would not reveal:
Mitt Romney’s campaign tonight announced that it has hired Richard Grenell, an out gay former George W. Bush administration official, to serve as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s “national security and foreign policy spokesman,” according to a report from The Washington Post that did not mention Grenell’s sexual orientation.
Grenell served through September 2008 in the Bush administration as a spokesman to the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations — and told The Advocate‘s Kerry Eleveld as he left the administration that it was his hope that New York would have marriage equality soon and that he would one day be able to marry his partner, Matt Lashey. The couple has been together 10 years. . . .
Andrew Sullivan, who had endorsed Obama’s 2008 run, wrote of the news, “For Romney to have an openly gay spokesman is a real outreach to gay Republicans, a subtle signal to moderates, and the Santorum faction’s reaction will be worth noting.”
Grenell is not just gay, but a gay activist who pushes for same-sex marriages.
At the end of Grenell’s service in the Bush administration, he took a notable whack at the administration, telling The Advocate‘s Kerry Eleveld of his effort to have his partner, Matt Lashey, listed in the United Nations’ Blue Book, which is “a reference guide of contact information for different member states of the United Nations as well as diplomatic personnel and their spouses.”
Grenell had attempted to have Lashey’s name added several times, to no avail. He told The Advocate back in 2008, “What put me over the edge was a friend and colleague who met her spouse after I was already with my partner — they got married and subsequently were put into the Blue Book in a matter of days.”
The State Department eventually told him that the Defense of Marriage Act prevented the listing. Although he protested the decision behind the scenes, Lashey’s name was not ever added, which led to his coming forward to criticize the treatement publicly as he left his post.
HuffPost has noted that since the choice, Grenell has scrubbed his Twitter account and website of offensive material...

My attitude towards homosexuals is about the same as towards Mitt: toleration. I won’t accept it, or certainly approve of it, as they would like, but I tolerate it as long as they don’t push their lifestyle on their time or my time.
Just as I won’t stand in Mitten’s way—but I won’t support, endorse or work for him. And I thought I erred toward the libertarian ... you don’t think that the fact that this fart-knocker is a “gay activist” will “compromise his job”?
Your last line: this is why Mittens is Rombama.
Yes. 0bama is an abortionist, gun-control-freak, socialist faggotry supporter.
It's vitally important to the future of this Great Republic that he be replaced with Romney.
Romney, you see, is an abortionist, gun-control-freak, socialist faggotry supporter.
More like a redhot poker.
"Includes topics like universal health care, gun rights, energy, NDAA, the Patriot Act, Iran, sanctions, economic stimulus. bank and auto bailouts, civil rights, TARP, the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, campaign donations, and more......"
No, because if either one wins we people lose.
And, if it comes to that, I think I’ll join you, as will my better half.
And that makes it three against a few million, so we win!
Obama is gay lol
When he worked for Bush, was he able to keep his personal perversion separate from his duties? Other than his affliction, is he the best person for the job? Will he put the good of the country ahead of his consideration of those like him? He’s not in a position to be blackmailed, as he’s “out” already.
Those are the questions that need to be answered.

When I was on a Town Hall call with a Representative running for Senate, I was astounded how the woman spoke to this Senator as if they were school girls before their “Idol”. One, a school teacher, actually asked the Senator which boxes she should check because she didn't know who to vote for! Too many voters do not see these Representatives are suppose to “work” for us....not put on a pedestal!
We have so many voting who should not be doing so....(sigh).
Getting rid of Obama, if he can do it, is about all I can think of.
I’ve been saying it for months- We need a TEA Party march ON GOP HEADQUARTERS
The answers are pretty obvious......show one thing...do another. His 'choice' for that perversion will and does permeate all other decisions....the Political "Gay Agenda' is called that for a reason.
Romney if elected (without my vote) - will undoubtedly select a transcended SC Judge. I dont think we have one of those yet.
