Bryan Fisher Owns Mitt Romney
Good point here raised by none other than Ari Fleischer (George W. Bush’s former press secretary) about the resignation today of Mitt Romney’s openly gay spokesperson, Richard Grenell. The Romney campaign said they wanted Grenell to stay but if that’s true, what about this:
Why was Grenell completely absent from the public stage in the last few days, when his subject area — foreign policy issues — were front and center in the political conversation?
Ari Fleischer, a former Bush administration official and one of Grenell’s most vocal defenders, raised that question in a telephone interview moments ago.
“Why wasn’t Rick the spokesman in the last couple of days, when foreign policy was paramount? That’s the piece I don’t understand,” Fleischer said. “I don’t know why he wasn’t the spokesman on foreign policy for the last several days. It’s something that nobody understands.”
Ah Ari: What you don’t understand is that the Romney camp is L-Y-I-N-G. As of today, it has been officially owned by the super-extreme radical right wing of the Republican base but it’s pandering to gay Republicans, trying to keep them on board (while hoping they’re stupid).
OMG. Romney’s trying to satisfy the crazies while simultaneously appealing to everyone else.
Good luck with that.
