Skip to comments.And now, a new definition of 'Romney-CAIR'

In what could be called a new version of Romney-CAIR, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys Maryland campaign chairman, former Republican Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich, is an endorser of the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Im glad that you have established such a strong voice in the community and that you are working to maintain a strong sense of cultural and economic identity, Ehrlich is quoted on CAIRs website as saying in December 2005.
Under the headline What They Say About CAIR, dated March 2010, there are lists of comments from religious, law enforcement and election officials. Ehrlichs comment is included there.
The Justice Department named CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in 2007 in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a charity discovered to be a front for the Hamas terrorist group. On July 1, 2009, District Court Judge Jorge Solis ruled that there was ample evidence to establish the association of CAIR to Hamas to justify the label.
A federal court filing states, From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists and the conspirators agreed to use deception to conceal from the American public their connections to terrorists.
Apparently, Ehrlich has not requested that CAIR delete his endorsement.
Although Ehrlichs statement was made before CAIR was labeled as an unindicted co-conspirator, experts on Islamic extremism say that is not a valid excuse.
Steven Emerson, executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, told WND that CAIR had a history of extremism from its founding in 1994 to 2005 when Ehrlich spoke in support of the group.

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Ehrlich is generally a good guy - disappointed to see he gave any sort of approval to CAIR. Hopefully somebody will ask him about it.
Romney = Obama-Lite.
Newt nails it pretty much every time (except for that “moon colony” thing), and I’d vote for him in a heartbeat, if he is our nominee.
Like your FR Name...
This was my Dad’s US Army Division w/ Patton, from D-Day to
thru The Battle of The Bulge:
26th Infantry Division “Yankee”
Until he was shot by a nazi sniper, saving our troops from enemy sniperfire. Highly-decorated from all that hell, he’s 86 now, and still my hero.
If Ehrlich had endorsed Santorum would your opinion be different?
Calling Romney a ‘tag team partner’ for Obama is, to say the least, a bit over the top. For the record, I’m not crazy about any of the 4 remaining candidates.
