I give Log Cabin Republicans much credit for the repeal of DADT. Moreover, they seem to be considerably saner than their counterparts at GOProud. I doubt that anyone at LC would pay to have Ann Coulter insult them.
Having said that, LC has announced its first Miami meeting of the 2012 election season. That announcement includes the following verbiage:
We are truly excited about the possibilities for our party and our group as we head into a very important 2012. We are focused and stand ready, willing and able to ensure Republican Victories to the most viable candidates that have our best interests at heart. Not just on the social issue of Gay & Lesbian Equality, which we struggle for on a daily basis, but on our core beliefs of small government, a strong national defense and fiscal responsibility.
In 2008, they endorsed McCain. Are they going to endorse Mitt Romney? Surely they know that Mitt signed the National Organization for Marriage pledge to:
- Support and send to the states a federal marriage amendment defining marriage as one man and one woman,
- Defend DOMA in court,
- Appoint judges and an attorney general who will respect the original meaning of the Constitution,
- Appoint a presidential commission to investigate harassment of traditional marriage supporters,
- Support legislation that would return to the people of D.C. their right to vote for marriage.
Really? After all of their hard work on DADT, could Log Cabiners really align with this pledge?
They also throw in the “small government” platitude. Didn’t they learn anything from the economic meltdown? What “small government” really means is relaxed regulations on Republican donors
