Romney on Chick-fil-A: Thatís not something thatís part of my campaign
Hot Air ^ | August 3rd, 2012 | Allahpundit

Posted on 08/03/2012 3:33:17 PM PDT by Third Person

Via the Examiner, I understand why he punted here. His retort to Reid’s tax-evasion smear last night was that it’s an obvious, grotesque attempt to hand the media a new distraction from Obama’s record. He just got back from a foreign policy trip/photo op that was also submerged in distractions, most notably his Olympics comments in London and his aide’s “kiss my ass” comments to the press in Poland. He’s just begun pushing a more positive message keyed to his biography to convince undecideds that he’s up to the job. The last thing he wants right now is another distraction wrapped around his ankles, particularly on a day when the news is about the latest disappointing jobs report.

Given that the Chick-fil-A question here was packaged with another question about Bachmann and the Muslim Brotherhood, he had two dilemmas. One: If he weighs in on either, that’s a story and now suddenly he’s being asked about gay marriage and Islamism instead of jobs for the middle class. If you want a candidate who’s more interested in culture-war issues than economic growth, try Romney 2008. Two: If he weighs in only on Chick-fil-A, the easier of the two topics, then there’ll be a separate story on why he specifically ducked the question about Bachmann and he’ll hear it from her supporters and from the media for dodging. He probably figured he was better off playing it safe (as usual) and passing on both. Hey — if you wanted a nominee who’d inch out on the highwire to answer any question put to him, you should have nominated Newt.

Still, hurts to know that even a tool like Mike Bloomberg is capable of offering a righteous answer on CFA when called on to do so:

Critics trying to shut Chick-fil-A because its CEO opposes gay marriage are undermining the very essence of the Constitution, Mayor Bloomberg declared today in a stirring defense of the embattled fast food chain.

“It isn’t the right thing to do and it isn’t what America stands for,” Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show. “And those people who don’t like (Chick-fil-A) don’t understand their rights were protected by people who took a difficult position in the past and stood by it. They stood up so everybody else would be free.”…

“What’s for sure is that government cannot in the United States, in America, under the Constitution, be run where you have a litmus test for the personal views of somebody when they want something in the commercial world.”

Barney Frank also managed to say a word against government discrimination towards Chick-fil-A. Ah well. Maybe Mitt will get another question about this tomorrow and say something about free speech even if he ends up avoiding the subject of gay marriage. Speaking of which, enjoy the second clip below. Not sure what’s gotten into Stewart lately, but this is a rare week during which most of his big hits have been at the expense of Democrats.

Exit quotation via Mediaite: “Pretty sure you can’t outlaw a company with perfectly legal business practices because you find their CEO’s views repellant. Not sure which amendment covers that, but it’s probably in the top 1.”

Mitt will probably take a lot of heat here on FR for not completely aligning himself with Huckabee.

I understand why he is doing it, though, and basically his job now is to unseat Obamugabe, and the best way to do that is to focus on Obamugabe’s epic failure in the economy.

So cut him some slack, guys and gals. :)

Romney on Chick-fil-A: That’s not something that’s part of my campaign

Good answer. Let it play out by itself.

The American people will either come out in droves to support marriage, or a few homos will stage a street orgy. It isn't his problem.
In fact, the only people who have a problem are the 1.7% homosexuals, so who cares what they think? Let then eat carpet.

“that’s not something that’s part of my campaign”.

Translation:

“What’s in it for me? I’ve got an election to win here.
I’m the heir apparent to the presidency according to Karl Rove and his establishment buddies and I don’t make a move without their approval.
Besides, I’m not a conservative and this sounds like something the stupid Tea Party cooked up”.

So lemme get this straight: Mittens considers stopping in at Chick FA to get a sandwich in support of free speech and Dan Cathy is a “distraction”? Uh huh.

Here is an Alinskyism for today's headlines:

One of several alternative components to the personal vilification strategy is to remember that "the real action is in the enemy's reaction. If you do a good enough job, you can force them to make a mistake. When they do, you must be ready to exploit it."

Romney needs to set the agenda himself. Stay on the subject. The left cannot win an honest debate.

Mr. Romney can offer an opinion on the Olympic games,
but has no opinion on the NATIONAL Chick-fil-a debate.
Nor does he have an opinion on the HISTORIC Texas senate race?

Exactly. It's totally beneath the GOP-e to be involved with the "unwashed people" issues. If it's not scripted...the plastic front men don't have an opinion.

He's a coward, a two faced douchebag, and a serial liar who doesn't have a conservative bone in his body and will say or do anything to get elected, then govern like a leftist.

Won't be cutting the Kolobian any slack, this is the real Romney, and a preview of what he will do as POTUS.

Stab conservatives in the back.

This CFA nonsense is beneath the office of the President. If a few nanny mayors and ex-congressman homosexuals want to chime in, go for it.

Neither Romney nor Obama should really have anything to say about it. Obama’s already learned the hard way not to inject himself into minor affairs.

Strategy. Sure.

Romney's State Sponsored Push Of The Homosexual Agenda Onto Children.

***

***

1.) "Husband" and "Wife" has been replaced by "Party A" and "Party B".
2.) Justices of the Peace are required to "solemnize" these marriages or be fired, as ordered by Gov. Mitt Romney on April 25, 2004. "We're just following the law," said Mitt Romney.
3.) Male/Female checkoffs for both Party A and Party B now on marriage license.
None of this was required by any law passed by the Legislature, or even ordered by the court. Governor Mitt Romney did this on his own, in cooperation with the ruling: "We're just following the law."

***


Mitt Romney's Gay Youth Pride Proclamation: "Urge all the citizens of the Commonwealth to take cognizance of this event and participate fittingly in its observance."



***

Mitt Romney To The Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts: "My approach to government is consistent with the values & vision of government we share." […] "I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for American gay & lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent." (His opponent? Senator Ted Kennedy. Full "equality" is a term the homosexual community uses to describe gay "marriage" & pushing the gay agenda into the mainstream.)

- "We must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern." "I can and will." - Mitt Romney

"I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays & lesbians being able to service openly & honestly in our nation's miliary. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians in the mainstream concern." - Mitt Romney

ROMNEYCARE: As Governor, Mitt Romney's Administration Promoted Issues Benefitting Transgenderism
“A nurse in a Massachusetts public high school was instructed to post the DPH ‘Transgender Health Poster’ showing three people: One is clearly a young man trying to pass for a female, one a flamboyant ‘drag queen’ wearing gobs of makeup, and one an unnaturally flat-chested young butch female with facial piercings,” she reports.

The poster from the Romney Department of Public Health was pushed statewide – in doctors’ offices, school nurses’ offices & public transportation. The poster claimed “Transphobia in healthcare is unhealthy.’”

Radical Gay Agenda Pushed By Governor Romney's Department of Public Health:
- Assisted AIDS Action Committee’s distribution of ‘The Little Black Book – Queer in the 21st Century (An X-Rated guide to homosexual sex practices and hook-up venues for young men).
- Eliminated STD testing before issuance of marriage licenses (new law signed by governor).
- Published a politically correct “Toolkit for Physicians” for treating men who have sex with men.
- Officially worked with anonymous homosexual hook-up website, ManHunt.net.
- Collaborated with Department of Social Services on “Waltham House” foster home for “transgender youth.”
- Involved in disseminating GLBT propaganda in public schools.
- Issued illegally altered marriage licenses in May 2004 to allow for same-sex couples.
- Maintained a confused policy over altering birth certificates to allow for “same-sex” parents.

Massachusetts Tells Catholic Church it MUST Permit Homosexual Adoption
Mon Feb 20, 2006 12:15 EST
BOSTON, February 20, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and a top government leader have told a group of bishops that their request that Catholic institutions be exempt from placing foster children with same-sex parents will be denied. [link]

Mitt Romney Said The Boy Scouts Should Be Forced Include Homosexuals
Romney uses gay-affirming “discrimination” rhetoric even with regard to the Boy Scouts’ ban on homosexuals. […] Romney is trying to shift the GOP’s pro-family paradigm on homosexuality, and it’s an unwise shift — much like retreating from a principled position on pro-life. [link]

You’re from the same ilk as Mountain Mary, but sorry for the mistake.

You have the right to your opinion, but if you’re going to attack the one that will be the only chance to get O out of the WH, I do challenge your reasoning.

Go ahead and vote for Virgil, or write in Sarah.

By the way, Newt, Santorum, Perry, Bachman, Cain, Palin, Limbaugh, and many other conservatives have said they will support Romney. I do have the references for each of these if you would like, but I think you can trust my judgment.
:-) That being said, which one of the above conservatives did you back? Do you still back them?

Romney should have said “There are millions of people who need a job. Some of them are gay. And I’m sure that’s the one thing they’re concerned about right now. In fact, I’ve heard some guy who drove through the drive-through yesterday is now looking for a job. It’s about jobs, jobs, jobs!”

Argumentum ad populum is the error of schoolboys. Extraordinarily slow schoolboys, in particular. No Sale.

That being said, which one of the above conservatives did you back? Do you still back them?

I concur. Smart move by Mitt. Despite what some folks may think, he’s better to stay ON MESSAGE right now. With all the dirt the Dems are throwing around, it can only be because they know they are losing. Wednesday was visual evidence of it.

Mitt visually going to a CFA would be almost like spiking the football.

Everyone saw the people in line on Aug 1. Everyone knows those folks are probably Romney (definitely not 0bama) voters. Mitt has already made his position known on marriage. Thus, he’s already spoken out on the subject.

As this point, the fifth-column scribes (AKA quoted media - I don’t know why people call them MSM) needs something to desperately to change the narrative.

Hence, I expect something to blow up in Jihad Land before election day. After all, waxing innocent theater goers hasn’t work.

If Mitt NEEDS anything right now, it’s a good week of 0 & company reacting to his moves - not the other way around. Meanwhile, he’s good to stay the course, and slowing chip away at the enemy’s base.

P.S. This statement is all politics, of course; as this writer is more than convinced that will take measures beyond politics to place this country back on a Constitutional path. But that’s another discussion over an adult beverage to two.

This election is about the economy and Obama’s failure in spite of getting multiple stimlus packages as requested. To get side-tracked with gay, abortion, or other democrat party disctactions using the social agenda arena would have been stupid. Once Mitt is president, he can start evolving his postions by devoling Obama’s agenda.
