On Wednesdy we reported that Mitt Romney threw on the flip-flops in one single speech faster than we can through on our Havaianas if we see a hot piece walking down the beach in Fire Island.
LGBT dems were rightfully upset with Romney's light-speed contradiction during his NAACP convention speech, but the Log Cabin Republicans aren't exactly rushing to defend the GOP candidate, either.
So, what does the LCR have to say about Romney's speech?
During his address to the NAACP convention in Houston on Wednesday, Romney reiterated his commitment to banning the legal recognition of gay couples across America after claiming that he wanted to represent all Americans. Can't have your divorce cake and eat it too, honey.
Here's what the LCR is saying today:
"With his opening remarks to the NAACP today, Governor Romney sent a message that he recognizes the importance of an inclusive Republican vision for victory in November," says LCR President R. Clarke Cooper in a release. "He deserves credit for taking the step to include sexual orientation by name. That said, it is unfortunate that he countered his outreach to gay and lesbian Americans with a gratuitous attack on the freedom to marry. If Governor Romney truly desires to represent all Americans, Log Cabin Republicans encourages him to avoid divisive social issues and focus on jobs and the economy."
What do you think of LCR's statement?
