Media perpetuate Romney gaffe myth

Mitt Romney would have been better off chucking the whole foreign trip and settling for a drop-in at a Chick-fil-A.

That is where his voters are, among traditional Americans tired of being pushed around and told what to think and how to live by politicians who, in other walks of life, could not run a Jiffy Lube.

That is why the people flocked to Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurants across the county. They wanted to show big-city, big-government Democrat politicians like Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel that they believe in free speech. They wanted to show they were opposed to in-your-face big-city bosses acting like dictators by promising to block Dan Cathy from opening franchises in their cities just because of his support of traditional marriage.

So they voted with their feet and their wallets and mobbed Chick-fil-A franchises across the country. It was a constructive lesson in how to make a positive statement.

In most cases the issue was not even gay marriage, or Cathy's religious-based opposition to it, but a matter of freedom of speech, and the intolerance of the Meninos and the Emmanuels of the world toward people who do not agree with their point of view.

We know Romney can butt heads. He did it during the primaries with his GOP opponents.

But, when is he going to start butting heads with the Big Goat -- Barack Obama?
