It's remarkable, this shitcanning of Richard Grenell as foreign-policy spokescritter for the Romneybot 2.0. Remarkable still for its being handled
with such notable dispatch. First, you hire on the former mouthpiece
for authoritarian nutbag John Bolton to establish further your
neo-conservative foreign-policy gravitas. It turns out the guy is openly gay, so bonus!

You're an abomination. Your guidance and help are not wanted no matter how good you are at your job. Mr. Roboto is missing a spine when it comes to standing up to the religious right. I shudder to think if Putin backs him to the wall.

    You can put your life on the line defending our country but that won't matter to somebody that wants to be CIC. Romney is spineless and should not get anyone's vote.

    Grenell says he resigned. Romney said he did not want him to resign. He was not fired. Now it is possible that the party pushed him to resign, but we are only speculating if we say Romney "fired" him. I think that's unfair.

    He was fired for being gay? I guess Romney wants to take us to the eighteenth century. It's bad enough hires someone who worked for John Bolton, but then he proves he is even more backward than Bolton is. That is, unless Bolton let Grenell go for being gay.

    Romney is too spineless to stand up to the extreme fundamentalist wing of his party, so they're running roughshod over him. If they can get him to fire people off of his campaign staff because they are gay, what can this wing of the GOP get him to do if he were elected president?

    If this man, Mitt Romney, gets elected we will be headed into another Dark Ages, the religious fanatics will take over and all of us could be subject all kinds of limitations and accusations even to the point of losing our jobs. This can't happen and those of us that understand the danger we are in should get behind the President on this issue and on his campaign. Our future depends on it.

    Marriage is about LOVE not Gender

    the origins of the word marriage Comes from the word Maier which means Bonding social unions under law



    Marriage (or wedlock) is a social union or legal contract between people may also be called matrimony. People marry for many reasons, including one or more of the following: legal, social, libidinal, emotional, economic, spiritual, and religious. These might include arranged marriages, family obligations, the legal establishment of a nuclear family unit, the legal protection of children and public declaration of commitment



    Marriage, as we know it in our Western civilization today, has a long history with roots in several very different ancient cultures, of which the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Babylonian, Persian, Hebrew, and Germanic are the most important.

    So far the only one I would Vote for is Obama, all the other candidates seem to be nuts. Hell I am glad Rick Santorum dropped out the things that came out of his mouth would have turned us back into the Dark ages. Unforechinitly Mit Romney isn’t too far behind him so I am still going for Obama.

    Our country was founded by people who fled England because they wanted to be able to worship and live as they saw fit, without having the government make rules for them to follow based on the government's religion. Romney appears to support imposing religiously based rules on us. It is unpatriotic for anyone to try to impose rules on others based on their religious beliefs. Mitt Romney is Un-American.

    Of course he resigned from a choice position with a presidential campaign just as they were getting ready for the national convention. They do that all the time, right?

    He would perceive he was a distraction only if the candidate told him so. The reich wingers are in control of that campaign.

    I agree...he was getting a lucrative wage as an adviser.
    Commonsense would be, you hold on and see if you can ride it out...but Romney and his team folded immediately...because Romney has no spine...to face up to GOP leadership, because he was HIRED by Romney for an adviser. The instant Romney's handlers say there is a problem...he folds. How can he handle world leadrs or China, if he folds so easily, to pander to the homophobics?

    That is something you do not just walk away from...you are pushed out of the nest...because you are no longer welcome. The days of being a bully that beat-up a gay in HS must of flashed back on him.
  • Jeremiah Wizard 2012/05/13 16:24:01

    He doesn't remember anything in his past that might pose a problem in the future. He won't remember throwing Grenell under the bus, because he will be looking for new ways to pander.

    If he was somehow elected president, he would be led by others, as were Reagan and Bush 43, who abdicated his responsibilities to Cheney. At least Bush 41 didn't turn his presidency over to Dan Quayle.
