And this is one of the main reasons I detest Mitt Romney:
His refusal to support re-instating DADT.
With this one issue position, Mitt Romney, probably without realizing it, has telegraphed to anyone being observant, that he is completely weak on the Social Issue Agenda.
Furthermore, any words to the contrary he might have, are like most of his issue position statements, more lies.
You are setting your sights way too low. You want to reinstate DADT?
That was a nightmare. You've allowed the Overton window to shift!
How was that policy better?
DADT was a major shift away from what our founders envisioned for this Country after it was founded! Not to mention 216 years worth of solid moral standing for our military.
Why not set policy that enhances readiness, or just get a moral reality check?
The LDS has long claimed to be made of sterner stuff than that — HOWEVER, Mitt is a bishop and he apparently gets to shape LDS policy.
