Mitt Romney campaign spent $500 at Chick-fil-A By: Tarini Parti August 20, 2012 08:44 PM EDT

The Romney campaign appreciates Chick-fil-A.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s campaign spent $500 at a Chick-fil-A in Atlanta last month, days before former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s national “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” on Aug 1.

Romney’s campaign reported the cost as “meeting expense” in its monthly federal campaign finance filing on Monday.

The Atlanta-based fast food chain has come under fire after the company’s president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that Chick-fil-A was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.” Gay rights advocates have since called for people to boycott the company.

LOL
If he spent 5000, someone would be complaining it wasn’t 50,000.

Somewhere at Politico there is a fellow who regards a hundred chicken sandwiches as an outrageous scandal. Liberal politics has reached a new state of infantilism.

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner.

Now do you want to predict just how many more posts we get on this thread before one of the Mormon haters slithers out from under their rock?

Let’s not quibble over amounts spent so far at Chick Fil-A.

The Romney campaign needs to spend more at CF-A. Lots more.

If a VP candidate is to hurl thunderbolts & be a lightning rod, Paul Ryan should be photo-opped one, two, many times enjoying Chick Fil-A spicy chicken sandwiches. With his family. With all the other freedom loving patrons.

Let the faggies & the liberals go nuclear. Just means more votes for the good guys.

they can be pinged....

Chicken is banned on the planet Kolob because they don’t fit in the magic underwear and one of Joseph Smiths’ wives couldn’t cook it. also, Bishop Romney laid off all the Chickens while he was at Bain.

LOL! Who needs to ping the freak show when you do such a great impersonation of them?

You're funny because you're not serious. They aren't funny because they are.

OMG - Mitt Romney hates gays, women, elderly, monogamy, the middle class, healthcare, paying taxes ... proven because some of his staffers ate chicken sandwiches.

He needs to withdraw from the race immediately.

Cheney/Ryan 2012.

Some where throwing a fit because Mitt said the controversy was not part of his campaign. Instead he put his money where his mouth is. Good for him. Smart campaign move too.

Looking at this, the unorthodox boldness of the Ryan pick ... he might, somehow, have that it takes to defeat Obama. I won't hold my breath. It's just amazing how near the election it.

Another reason why the MSM is now officially reaching the bottom of the barrel in regards to political “news” (a term I now use very advisedly, as the Brits say!).

Just a little late to the party, eh Mitt? Should have jumped on Aug 1 like CONSERVATIVES did.

I’m voting against Obama period. But come on Mitt. Quit making two stupid statements for every one great one.

From the story:

Seems to me Huckleberry was "late to the party", along with the rest of us.

Remember what “Poltico” is.

They’re reporting on it now, because for them, being Romney and eating CFA are both negatives that can only sink his campaign.

...and the only reason us repub retards haven't turned away from him in horror is because we haven't yet learned about this evil chicken feast of hate. So it, and other events like it, will get reported ad nauseam until we figure it out and throw ourselves at 0bama's feet in abject repentance.

In my case, they have a long wait.

Tarini Parti, the author of this hard hitting piece of journolism (I use the term loosly) is a reporting intern for politico the summer of 2012.

They must have the senior reporters diging into what kind of toilet paper Mitt uses.

Dunno, never had any KFC sandwiches, but their original chicken was/is just really good (taste-wise, not necessarily health-wise of course because it's fried food).
