I hadn’t known about the Boy Scout thing. I’d like to see a cite for that, but if it’s true he’s pretty much off the table for me.

Here's your link.

Straight from the RINO's mouth.

It seems at least one standard reply from Mitt supporters to 'evidence' like this is something like "you have to go back to 1994 or 2002 to come up with this. He's changed."

As a Christian, I'm all for conversions but I am going to be skeptical if someone changes - 1) a large number of previously held opinions seemingly all at once, and 2) goes from strong, bed-rock support of one thing and is now saying the exact opposite. The other thing that causes me concern about Mitt is the robotic answers. He learns lines to say and recites them like an actor. This Boy Scout answer is a classic example.

A Huckabee contribution of value was his one-liner about conversions: “Conversions are supposed to be made on the road to Damascus, not just the road to Des Moines.”

Thanks. That’s the link that shows Romney supporting the Boy Scout’s right to exclude gays from leadership.

And which never mentions scoutmasters.

Thank you both. I wasn't one of his supporters, but that is still a real eye-opener.

Just another reason I'll be voting for Fred in the Illinois primary.
