All they want is power and couldn't care less how many lies they tell or how many die.
Attempting to appear moderate and to appeal to independent voters despite his close ties with the National Organization for Marriage and his renunciation of nearly every single pro-LGBT advancement from the past decade, Mitt Romney has hired Richard Grenell as a foreign policy spokesperson:
Mitt Romney’s campaign tonight announced that it has hired Richard Grenell, an out gay former George W. Bush administration official, to serve as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s “national security and foreign policy spokesman,” according to a report from The Washington Post that did not mention Grenell’s sexual orientation.Grenell is gay, and as a former Bush administration official he was outspoken about his orientation in 2008, leading an effort to get himself and his partner listed alongside other United States diplomats, and telling The Advocate:
Though Grenell and Lashey met in New York and have been together six years, they cannot legally marry in the Empire State. “It is not an option for us in New York, but hopefully someday soon it will be,” he says. “In my mind, and in Matt’s mind, this is it. We’re married.”Mitt Romney of course supports an amendment to the United States Constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman, just as former president George W. Bush did. His stance on repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has shifted from 1994 until now. Currently he says that repeal has already occurred and he isn’t going to change it – though he isn’t comfortable with the fact that it was done during wartime.
