He just put an avowed gay activist on his staff. I don’t think they are listening as well as you do at this point.
I walk the line a bit on this one , myself. I have a gay relative who is very conservative. He is quiet about his lifestyle and definitely does not like the in your face politics of organizations like ActUp. So I have no problem with a person identifying as gay especially if it avoids negative publicity later.
Richard Grenell being an outspoken activist for gay marriage does bother me. All I can do is remember Ronald Reagan saying, "Give me someone I can agree with 80% of the time and I can support him" and hope that I can use that to help me remember that our mission for America is to remove Barack Obama before he does any more damage to our country.
