Romney’s silence on Chick-fil-A may cause voters to ‘simply stay at home,’ Donohue warns
Life Site News ^ | Ben Johnson

Posted on 08/08/2012 5:35:12 AM PDT by IbJensen

LAS VEGAS, August 7, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Mitt Romney’s decision not to condemn mayors threatening to deny Chick-fil-A the right to do business was a missed opportunity and may cost him votes in November, a growing chorus of social conservatives warn.

Last Friday in Las Vegas, when a reporter asked the Republican presidential nominee about the controversy over Chick-fil-A and charges about a diplomat’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, he replied, “Those are not things that are part of my campaign.”

After company president Dan Cathy said he supported Biblical marriage, homosexual organizations called for a boycott, and several prominent Democratic mayors threatened to withhold permits for the Christian business to operate in their cities. The fast food chain broke sales records during the August 1 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” called by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Christian radio talk show host Bryan Fischer asked, “Well, governor, exactly what was not a part of your campaign? The part about natural marriage? The part about freedom of religion? The part about freedom of speech? The part about freedom of entrepreneurship? What? If you will not publicly stand for those values, what will you stand for?” These questions were echoed by talk show host Mark Levin.

“Social conservatives have to make up their mind whether they should just simply stay at home, or go out there and vote for Romney,” Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, said. “I’m astonished that he couldn’t even come to grips with the question. Leaving gays out of it, do we want the chief executives, the mayors of large cities trying to intimidate, using the power of government against private enterprises whose politics they disagree with? I think it’s a pretty simple issue.”

Click “like” if you want to defend true marriage.

Several conservative writers confessed to being flummoxed by Romney’s absence, calling it a “missed opportunity.”

“I don’t understand why Mitt Romney doesn’t just get his Secret Service detail and take his press corps down to a Chicken-fil-A and show solidarity with these people,” said columnist and former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan. “It’s instinct. Reagan would have walked right on down there naturally.”

To excite the party’s base, Richard Viguerie, a conservative activist for more than 50 years, has suggested the GOP invite Dan Cathy to address the Republican National Convention. “Republicans should oblige President Obama’s desire to make same-sex marriage a central issue in the November election, and campaign unequivocally as the party of the traditional values Dan Cathy stood for,” Viguerie wrote.

Even prominent members of the party’s neoconservative wing, which has little time for social issues and generally supports the homosexual lobby, encouraged Romney to stop at Chick-fil-A. “Didn’t happen,” wrote Bill Kristol.

Some supporters of same-sex “marriage” have defended the beleaguered chicken chain.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a social liberal who considered running against Romney as an independent presidential candidate, said “it’s inappropriate for a city government or a state government or the federal government to look at somebody’s political views and decide whether or not they can live in the city or operate a business in the city or work for somebody in the city.”

Congressman Barney Frank, who recently “married” his boyfriend, agreed, “I don’t think government should discriminate against Chick-fil-A because of the views of the owner.”/

Even Antoine Dodson, the flamboyantly homosexual subject of a viral video, has said, “A lot of people from the gay community was [sic] actually telling me not to eat at Chick-fil-A and then you know, I started having these flashbacks, because I started believing like, the gay community — we have went [sic] from being bullied to becoming bullies,” he said. “And I don’t think that that is fair, because I’m like, aren’t we like in America? Like, we have freedom of speech.”

“I don’t think it’s American,” he said.

What a wimp. He must be a plant from the democrats. They base their health care system on his Massachusetts plan. Oh, this is just great. At a time when this country is begging for leadership we get Mr oatmeal!

There goes the election.

I could understand if Appreciation Day had been a flop, but people came out in droves! He can see the American people clearly have spoken on this issue. It seemed a slam dunk to me to just stand up with the other hundreds of thousands of Americans. He's going to make people doubt where he stands on the subject.

Add this to his stance on admitting homosexuals to the Boy Scouts and it is almost like he wants to lose - like McCain who behaved as if he was working for the Obama campaign.

The simple fact is that most of the social issues that little lord Mittleroy doesn’t have the courage to face, play a huge part in our economic situation now.

Nice! The country is ‘burning down’ from a Socialist arsonist and people are actually thinking of ‘staying home’ on account of a ‘Chick-Fil-A’ fight the RATs started. Why don’t these people just pack up and leave all together, and leave those of who WANT TO REALLY FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY AGAINST THE SOCIALISTS GET TO WORK!

We are still in the wilderness, starving for a like-minded leader. We had one, his name is Gingrich, but was way too mean-spirited for the Republicans. Right now, he would be eating at CFA everyday. Will never forget the discussion he had with a gay activist, wanting to know what he would do for the gay community. Newt responded with belief in traditional marriage and if you are looking for something more you should probably vote for Obama. Wish I could post it because it is incredibly enlightening and relevant right now. How sad that ths man is not our nominee.

Agreed! All of you who say you’renot going to vote for Romney because he doesn’t perfectly toe the conservative line are fools! Total, utter fools! If you don’t cast a vote AGAINST the lying Kenyan usurper, by pulling the lever FOR Romney, you are anti-American. Period.

Fine, you might feel happy about your ‘ideological’ stand, but you’re also making the Socialists happy!

It’s the same sort of thing that caused us to get Romney in the primary in the first place.

Too many ‘conservatives’ are so stuck ‘ideologically’ with ONE single candidate, that they can’t UNITE behind a common goal to defeat the worst enemy, so what you have then, is the worst case scenario resulting!

Keep it up. I hope you feel good (and I hope you felt good in the primaries also).

Thanks for the support. What you see here is actually the type of thinking that got so many conservatives votes split in the primaries and why we got Romney in the first place. Now these same people are GOING TO STAY HOME because they don’t have the ‘candidate’ that they want (... and forget about the ‘real enemy’ - it’s all about the ‘pure’ candidate).

It’s like fighting a fire to keep the house from burning down, and someone doesn’t want to help because the ‘water hose’ is not the ‘ideal’ water hose!

Fricking Unreal!!!

If you are choosing to vote for the liberal Romney, go right ahead.
I do not vote for liberals, whether they have a D or R after their name.
Romney was pushed on us by the GOPe, and cowards in the Republican party that did not vote for conservatives because they fell for the lie “only Romney can beat Obama”.

First Romney has to at least acknowledge the conservative base even exists and the Tea Party is real to get the vote out. He isn't going to get the vote of people he acts embarrassed of. He is one stupid Yankee, lacks conviction. The sheeple see that.

Democrats get their base to vote because they embrace their base, not eschew them.

Oh, come on. He is not. A little too calculating of a politician for me but he must figure there is very little to help him here, and a whole lot that can hurt him. And there are a whole lot of issues where that’s the case. He’s choosing to focus like a laser beam on the economy because he calculates that’s all he NEEDS.

If you’re that interested in changing the democrats then you’ll need to start voting for the democrats.

I’m actually interested in fixing the GOP and not interested in doing what your master says. Face it, little Mitty is a disaster and it doesn’t matter how desperate you are to blame someone else. Your chances were better with McCain than they’ll ever be with Romney and that’s just the way it is.

I don’t like the fact that Romney...

- Is a mormon (yeah, I said it)
- Has some shady business stuff (who has offshore accounts?)
- Pushed for RomneyCare (as Santorum said, why would anybody think this guy is the one to challenge ObamaCare?)
- Doesn’t have any balls. If we could take Newt’s and somehow transplant them to Mitt, this election would be over with by October.

This election is a fight for the soul of America. The enemy sappers are inside the wire,and we have individuals who are concerned with the “purity” of the firebase commander who is leading the counterattack? Unreal!

I’ve been here at FreeRepublic for a very long time, and I thought I understood how we think here, our ideals, how we feel about America. If we don’t excise the cancer in the WH, we won’t have America as we once knew her. Not voting for Mitt Romeny is the same as voting for the lying Kenyan usurper who squats in OUR White House.

It is painful to behold; but hardly unexpected. 'Common Wisdom' - which should have been revised when Bill Clinton was elected - holds still, to 'make nice' and do not rock the boat; as if those 'outside the beltway' can neither appreciate; nor understand; authentic Leadership.

There is a travesty being committed in the name of Republicans and the 'good' citizens America. We have a Party, whose Leadership supports our Military; proudly sends them to defend America on our behalf; while they, themselves, cower in the face of the greatest evil to threaten our nation.

More than a travesty; their abdication of duty and Leadership - their cowardice to name the 'elephant in the room' (or, more to point, the 'donkey' - is a treason committed against America.

An altogether, pathetic history being written. . .

It is understandable that Bill would say this - he is a great guy and I am a member of his Catholic League. Nevertheless, the truth is we won't be voting FOR Romney, but AGAINST Obama so this doesn't mean much. Besides CFA Day was actually a nationwide TEA party rally. The TEA party has one goal and it is defeating Obama.

Nonsense.

“We the People” have this issue well in hand - Romney doesn’t have to try to get out in front of “his mob.” His cause, and ours, is best served by him doing nothing.

Now if we could only get him to roll back his statement on the Boy Scouts of America to “They are a private organization and may do as they see fit.”

Of all the candidates in running for the GOP Romney was only ahead of Ron Paul in my book...
I had every intention of not voting for him as I am sick and tired of the GOP forcing me to choose from real bad to just plain bad... It is still bad...
But the damage that Obama is doing to my grandkids future was starting to outweigh my revulsion. But Romney keeps trying to piss me off on a weekly basis. He keeps this up and he can KMA.

I agree that it would be good for Romeny to acknowledge the Tea Party and conservative base. He surely isn’t stupid, although he is a Yankee. He is a far cry from the socialist disaster that occupies the White House, however.

What I think the I-won’t-vote-for-Romney crowd doesn’t understand is that we got Romney because we didn’t have enough votes, at the right time, in the right places to defeat him. Moreover, we don’t have a strong leader. You go to war with the army you have, not the army you wish you had or the army you hope to have one day (Rumsfeld, ca. 2003). Then you get your people in everywhere you can.

For example, we should have an organization dedicated to getting conservatives into schools, academia, appointed government positions. That’s where you have to fight them, for now.

Romney’s handlers decide where their cardboard man should be posted, placed, planted, posed, and propped.
They’ve done ok so far. Got him the votes needed for nomination. Barring a miracle he will be the candidate.
Why should they put him on a white-hot controversy that will throw them off message and give the media a chance to run fresh anti-Romney quotes from any lefty with a tongue?
Besides, insofar as the cardboard has any personal opinions at all, he is pro-gay; and likely neither Romney nor his handlers are well-versed in the finer points of the controversy, such as the impropriety of govt officials discouraging businesses on the basis of political correctitude.
Really, is anyone surprised that Romney demurred?
If he’s a wimp, what are the people who will vote for him?

One thing about Romney I’m certain of: Romney is not a member of the New World Order fraternity, the Council on Foreign Relations.

That’s something in his favor and something he can say he shares with Ronald Reagan.

Sometimes the fire is so bad, playing with the hose just wastes time and you have to go with demolition to keep the fire from spreading. I think that's where we're at. The GOP will collapse before the country does, so perhaps that will avail.

There isn't enough water in the Romney hose and furthermore, it has been known to spew pro-abortion, pro-gay, socialized medicine crud.

It wasn’t a “missed opportunity.” Romney doesn’t consider those mayors to be his foes or the Chik-Fil-A folks to be his friends. He is a Manageriaal Republican, a statist who thinks he can manage the Total State in a more businesslike manner.The problem with the kenyan is his incompetence, not his ideology.
