With Menino’s help, Mitt Romney can fil-A Barack (A slap at Shep Smith also)
Boston Herald ^ | 8/3/2012 | Howie Carr

Posted on 08/03/2012 5:19:50 AM PDT by pietraynor

Forget Eric Fehrnstrom and the rest of the Mitt Romney brain trust — the guy who’s done the most for the GOP candidate this week is none other than Mumbles Menino.

If the mayor can brainstorm up a few more Chick-fil-A’s, this election will be over by Labor Day.

Menino invented Chick-fil-A, you know. Maybe Mike Huckabee came up with the idea of a National Day of Appreciation, but the media needed a bloated cartoonish clod to put it across. And when it comes to clowns, the mayor arrives straight out of Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey.

He came up with such a bad idea that it went around the country in less than 48 hours, from Chicago to San Francisco to even the Fox News Channel, where Shep Smith sneeringly called the Chick-fil-A turnouts “National Intolerance Day.”

It’s about time this country showed a little intolerance.

We tolerated Obama making our military a haven for Homosexuals, We tolerate the death rate from drunken illegals, we tolerate the murder rate in Chicago, while we tolerate Jackson and Sharpton crucifying a “white hispanic” in Florida for one death nof a minor criminal..We tolerated the Democrats shoving Obamacare down our throats, and hopefully Americans have tolerated enogh to bring them to the point where we gag at further tolerance.

The one thing we are most guilty of is tolerating a Media that no longer gives us the news they try to lead our lives.
Screw the media and all of the intolerant pricks working for it, that call US intolerant.

Those lines around the block and people waiting 3 hours to show support...?

Just a preview, lefties of the “enthusiasm” we’ll display on Nov 6.

“National Intolerance Day”, that was Shep’s idea, wasn’t it? Sounds gay to me.

I don’t believe anyone with the bumper sticker “I’m Straight but not Narrow” is really straight, either.

Sorta like the Chick Fil-A bully, “I’m heterosexual!!”

The faggies doth protest too much, methinks. Especially today.

I’ve been thinking the same thing myself lately. Why the hell should I be “tolerant”. Tolerate what? All the above mentioned crap? And this is suppose to be some kind of virture? I’ve decided that “tolerant” is just a code word for “spineless pu__y that too damn afraid to stand up and say that this sh_t is WRONG!!”.

So far Romney has been totally silent on the Chick-fil-A first amendment issue. He has shown no sign of support for Dan Cathy or the millions upon millions of traditional marriage supporters and free speech supporters who flocked to Chick-fil-A this week. I have not seen him with a CFA cup in his hand.

Why is that?

Could it be because he agrees with the homofascists who want to outlaw Chick fil A because they hold traditional values? Or could it be that our presumptive nominee is JUST PLAIN CHICKEN?

Romney is the architect of same-sex "marriage," he has no interest in supporting social conservatives on any issue.

A Mormon would be wise to avoid religious issues.

In this case, discretion is the better part of valor.

“Tolerance” is exactly that - a codeword for ‘spineless.’ I have always liked this quote from Dorothy Sayers: “In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair, the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.”

Tolerance is NO virtue; it is a PC concoction rammed down We the People’s throats and embraced because we want others to think we are NICE. Having opinions that are clear and that define you - this is what makes humans all that we can be. It takes courage to stand for your beliefs, though, and conformity is remarkably inviting.

He’s one boringly careful dude.

While what you say is true, MissM, don't forget that at recently as this April Romney came out in favor of gay couples, and making it worse, he said that at state level gay couples should have the right to adopt children.

In the debates he said he's fine with open homosexuality in the military.

In the past he's told gay groups that he's their best friend, that as a republican he'll be able to accomplish things for their agenda that no democrat could get away with. So, let's not kid ourselves about Mitt Romney and gays.

Then there's Ann Coulter, who would have been all over this first amendment issue a few years back.

Can anyone point me to her biting review of those who've attacked Chick-fil-A?

Shep was behind me in the Monster seats at Fenway five years ago. He had a TRAY of beers. He was so Bleepfaced. Rumor in my neighborhood is Ed Markey is a Closet Case.

Mayor Mumbles Menino and Shep Scheiss-bag Smith should be pleased to know that as I read this article, an ad for Chick-Fil-A magically appeared below the article, courtesy, I suppose of another liberal icon’s business which tracks reader’s online habits. I’m sure that is what these paragons of virtue intended.

Agreed, and I trust the Lyin' Stream Media to report it in that context rather than as a "tolerance" issue 100%.

Yes, I am that stoopid!

Yes, but many Christians don't think Romney is one of them. Supporting Chick Fil A would help.

I had Fox News on the day Obama ‘came out’ for gay marriage. The rest of the MSM had covered this hours earlier. When The Fox Report started, Shep led with this story, hours late. I guess he wanted to be the one to ‘break’ the gay marriage story on Fox.

Well that seems like a very narrow viewpoint to say that it's one or the other. I think it could easily be both.

I a bit afraid to speculate why Romney, a Mormon, is pro-gay. I’ll probably be accused of being anti-Mormon, which I’m not. I’m anti-liberal

Perhaps he doesn’t really believe his religion. Perhaps Mormons actually have pro-gay theology that escapes the notice of those of us who really have little knowledge of the minute details of Mormon theology.
