Skip to comments.Mark Levin to Romney: Not ‘Standing Up’ for Chick-fil-A Is Wrong
Posted on 08/07/2012 6:49:05 AM PDT by NKP_Vet
Conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin lashed out at GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for not standing up for Chick-fil-A and demanded that the former Massachusetts governor pick a conservative to be his running mate.
We want a little bit more than crumbs, Levin asserted on Mondays show. We want a conservative running mate and we want some conservatives who have real speaking time at prime time.
Levin said he continues to be very concerned about Romney, particularly with the candidates public reticence in recent days to join conservatives who have made statements and appearances on behalf of the embattled fast-food chain.

Trap or not, the dems clearly underestimated the response to this one. Mitt had a chance to knock it out of the park. In one fell swoop, he’d have stood on the side of free speech and the sanctity of the first amendment while intimating (if he’s incapable of shouting) support for traditional marriage, AND proving that there MIGHT be connection (however frail) between himself and flyover country. Instead he’s “playing it safe,” running in place somewhere between home and first waiting to be tagged.
HUGE mistake. Campaign staff needs to be replaced.
Maybe there is a pattern here that explains Romney’s failure to support Chick-fil-A:
“A spokesperson for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has advised that the former Massachusetts governor disagrees with the Boy Scouts current policy prohibiting open homosexuals from serving as members and leaders.
According to The Associated Press, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the news outlet in an email that Romney still stands by his beliefs that homosexual men should be able to serve in the organization. She specifically noted that Romney had outlined his views in 1994 during a political debate, and that his stance has not changed.”
“Mitt Romney also recently reiterated his support for homosexual adoption. This past May, in an interview with Neil Cavuto of Fox News, he explained that while he is against the concept of homosexual marriage, he does believe that homosexual couples should be able to adopt children.
[I]f two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child, in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, thats something that people have a right to do, Romney outlined. But, to call that marriage is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word.”
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Its sad that the country has come to this but the fact is that in the last few years and especially the last 3 years those who engage in fecal sex have now pushed their agenda into our faces and we can either back down or stand up like those who have stood up before us.
Yes it is sad but I believe people are choosing to stand up i.e. CFA. I am going to e-mail those leftist contributors to my address book. If we continue to support those businesses who stand for traditional marriage, we might boost the economy - who knows. And look into Amway (it’s sort of expensive though)
More people dislike him than like him. You can put lipstick on a pig, but the pig is still the same old pig. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
The socialist Kenyan in office right now is a disaster!! Romney should be creaming him in the polls & yet, it's a tight race. Another 4 years of him will certainly change America as we know it.
Only a miracle can get us out of this mess we're in.
Sorry if I offended anyone with this post. The truth is the truth & once again, we are asked to vote for the lesser of two evils.
Levin holding Romneys feet to the fire and I could not be happier about it. Obama has to go and Romney has to understand that his affair with conservatives will not be slam, bam thank you Ma’am now get lost.
I don’t think you live in the real world. No republican will be creaming any democrat at the polls or in a national election no matter how conservative. Those days are gone and will remain gone so long as half the people in this country pay no federal taxes. I really think a lot of folks do not realize how far down he road to Eurosocialism America has traveled which is exactly why four more years of Obama is untenable.
Mr. RomneyCARE could not even beat McCAIN last time
and instead attacked Gov. Palin.
Romney is not conservative. He is not Christian. And he has a considerable record as a gay activist.
It’s not a matter of not having enough spine. It’s a matter of simply following his own values—and lying to us whenever necessary to get himself elected.
Romney would never choose a conservative for his VP. And even if he was somehow forced to do so at the convention, so what? He would still be the same baby-killing, gay activist, socialist cult leader that he is now. His only strong point is his hair—almost as good as Edwards.
I(also)AGREE 100% with Mark Levin!Romney should have stepped up to the plate!!
I just wish those on our side wiht a public vouce woudl speak up about what the radical left is doing.
Most of talk radio never talk about the homosexual agenda, gun rights etc.
When don’t ask was to be overturned which BTW gave them their own private business hannity put the phone down on a vet and wouldn’t let other vets like me to talk about don’t ask.
The GOP, Romney, talking heads are way out of touch of the average guy or gal and being cowardly nly helps the radcial left and the homostapo push their agenda more.
Heaven forbid that Mitt should ever be asked to clearly, and unequivocally stand up for conservative values - even when he's got hurricane force winds at his back.
Speaking of 'message'. What is his message? Does he even have one, or is he just running on the 'I'm not Obama' platform?
Guess you didn't read Palin's book. She said years ago, that she'll never run as a VP candidate again.
That picture of Mitt yukking it up with those tools is PRECISELY why I am refuse to vote for him.
Romney on Boy Scouts (Debate, 1994)
The leftists’ march on our country has been going on for many years - it just hit it’s perfect storm with Obama and the Chicago gang got into power. Lots of stuff going on we don’t know about but, I can say, I have never seen things change so rapidly as in the last 3 years. It’s going to be one hellofa fight to get back on track but I, among others, am willing to go the distance. I can’t stomach what is happening to the country I grew up in. God help America if we lose this one!
It's not his campaign staff. It's Romney himself. Mr. Vanilla has never bucked the liberal tide of political correctness, and has always been missing in action at the front.
If anything needs replacing, it's his jelly spine.
Anybody expect anything different from this no Core Belief Hack
And we are stuck with him
And his campaign people are not only fools but $$$ wasters
I get at least one Romney letter asking for $$$ a day and the last 2 days I got 2 a day
Mark is right, but we dont need to involve Romney in this at all...
Romney has the right to choose whether he wants to kick in with this issue or not- I would RATHER he stayed out of it and let us do this lifting on the issue
And by that I mean not comment on it one way or the other just to say (if pressed) “the people are speaking out”
