To the Members of the Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts:
I am writing to thank the Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts for the advice and support you have given to me during my campaign for the U.S. Senate and to seek the Clubs formal endorsement of my election. The Log Cabin Club has played a vital role in reinvigorating the Republican Party in Massachusetts and your endorsement is important to me because it will provide further confirmation that my campaign and approach to government is consistent with the values and vision of government we share.
I am pleased to have had an opportunity to talk with you and to meet many of you personally during your September meeting. I learned a great deal from those discussions and the many thoughtful questions you posed. As a result of our discussions and other interactions with gay and lesbian voters across the state, I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for Americas gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent.
I am not unaware of my opponents considerable record in the area of civil rights, or the commitment of Massachusetts voters to the principle of equality for all Americans. For some voters it might be enough for me to simply match my opponents record in this area. But I believe we can and must do better. If we are to achieve the goals we share, we must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern. My opponent cannot do this. I can and will.
We have discussed a number of important issues such as the Federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which I have agreed to co-sponsor, and if possible broaden to include housing and credit, and the bill to create a federal panel to find ways to reduce gay and lesbian youth suicide, which I also support. One issue I want to clarify concerns President Clintons dont ask, dont tell, dont pursue military policy. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nations military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share.
As we begin the final phase of this campaign, I need your support more than ever. By working together, we will achieve the goals we share for Massachusetts and our Nation.
W. Mitt Romney
How people are falling for this guy given his record in Mass is beyond me. I can’t understand it.
This man should not be put in charge of out military.
Why do folks like us have to dig this stuff up?
Answer: We’re actually smarter than the media.

This is the text of an actual letter that Mitt Romney wrote to the Log Cabin RINOs letting them know just how pro-homosexual he is, this includes allowing openly homosexual men and women to serve in the military.
What the militant homosexuals have NEVER been able to tell us is exactly what “rights” they are being denied. I’ve heard them talk about hospital visitation rights, yet I am unaware of a hospital anywhere in this country that has a policy of excluding unmarried “partners” whether homosexual or heterosexual. They have every right to marry a person of the opposite sex, just like the rest of us. Most insurance plans that provide benefits provide them for unmarried live-in “partners.” All of us are free to leave our money to whomever we want when we die, and we can name anyone as a beneficiary on a life insurance or retirement policy.
So tell me, WHAT are they being denied?
Go to post #33 to see Romney supporting the same thing just 3 weeks ago in a TV interview. No kidding.
I respectfully disagree with your assessment. Please do some research re these ads from the log Cabin Republicans.
Romney is the only major Republican candidate supporting a Federal Marriage Amendment.
BTW, did you know that both McCain and Thompson refused to sign the no new tax pledge?
“...and the Log Cabin crowd is running ads against Romney. They didnt think he went far enough in their favor.”
No, they’re mad because he flip-flopped on most (but not all) of their issues.
Neither side of the homosexual issue trusts him.
“Mitt Romney is the man who stopped Massachusetts from being the Gay Marriage Mecca.”
Mitt Romney is the man who as a candidate for governor in 2002 OPPOSED a Marriage Protection Amendment to his state constitution.
Who order local justices of the peace to perform homosexual marriages or resign.
Who ordered county clerks to amend marriage licenses to read “Party A” and “Party B” instead of “Husband” and “Wife.”
Who personally himself issued dozens of special-authority marriage licenses from the governor’s office to homosexual couples.
And all without a court order compelling him to do anything.
A group of pro-family activists was handing out that pink flyer at the recent Values Voter Summit in Washington, when we saw a couple of young guys we didn’t know also handing out the exact same thing. Found out later they were from Log Cabin Republicans.
Both sides of the issue were intent on exposing Romney’s fraudulence.
“I guess being against gay marriage is not enough for you?”
You have guessed wisely.
There’s a lot more to the homosexual political agenda than just marriage.
For example, the entire homosexual agenda pre-Goodridge decision in Massachusetts, when marriage wasn’t even an issue.
This is really sick. These extreme liberals like Romney assume the voters are to stupid to understand ( and find) things like this.
He is the typical country club Republican. He will say and do whatever is needed to get elected.
He HAS NO CORE VALUES.
Shame on conservatives who fall for this guy.
“The Log Cabin Republicans hate Romney with a passion.”
That’s after they ENDORSED him in both 1994 and 2002.
What they hate is his duplicity, his having told them he supports their political agenda when running in Mass, then flip-flopping to oppose their agenda when running for prez.
