So why did the Log Cabin Republicans endorsed Romney? I know I shouldn't be surprised, I thought they would see what a snake Romney was. But boy was I wrong.
Their reason for supporting Mittens was based on some secret promise in a secret meeting. In the blog/News site, The Nation, Ben Adler shed some light on this endorsement:
I called LCR’s executive director, R. Clarke Cooper, to find out.Seriously? Child please, Romney is a shapeshifter, a liar and a bootlegger. Why would he keep that particular promise? And if he has to keep it hidden, then he's going to flip-flop on it. The LCR were fools to believe this and stupid to go along with his lies.
Romney’s greatest asset as a politician is his total lack of integrity, honesty or consistency. He is perfectly willing to go before the religious right one day and pledge fealty to them, and the Log Cabin Republicans the next day to do the same. And, apparently, that is what he has done, in private. Cooper asserted repeatedly that, “With a President Romney we’re confident we can work with him [on ENDA].” But when asked why, Cooper offered only reasons that Romney should work with them: that discrimination is a form of economic inefficiency and impediment to job growth. But you could make the same argument to any president. The question is what Romney has said that gives them such confidence. Cooper says, “Romney been clear in his opposition to workplace discrimination.” He also seemed to conflate private conversations with LCR representatives and his public pronouncements, saying such things as, "He’s acutely aware of the problem of the patchwork of discrimination," meaning that it creates problems for businesses that some states ban anti-gay discrimination and others do not. Later, clearly referencing private communications with the campaign, Cooper said, "Based on our work with the campaign and Gov. Romney, I'm confident [that he will support anti-discrimination legislation]."
Romney will quickly throw us under the bus as soon as he can. We know this, I just wish the LCR realized this as well.
