Aide Celebrates Candidate's "Courage"

Romney Takes Swipe At Log Cabin Reps.

Mitt Romney and his campaign staff do not appreciate the Log Cabin Republican’s anti-Mitt advert.

After viewing the commercial – which blasts the presidential candidates capricious positions on gun control and abortion policies – Romney aide Kevin Madden barked:

As Governor Romney has repeatedly made clear, like many other Republicans including Ronald Reagan, he wasn’t always pro-life. Governor Romney has said he was wrong and hopes he never stops learning from his mistakes or trying to do what’s right.

This personal, negative attack was launched and paid for by a group recognized as having Mayor Giuliani as their ‘favorite’ candidate. Governor Romney supports a federal marriage amendment and so it makes sense that a national gay rights group would attack him. The advertisement misrepresents Governor Romney’s courage to admit that he had been wrong on this issue and the fact that he is proud of his strong record of defending the sanctity of life.

Romney’s “courage”? Um, right. We don’t think “courage” when we reflect on Romney’s repeated flip-flops. Rather, we think “patronizing,” “lying” and “despicable”. But that’s just us…
