While Scott Helman ("Romney's journey to the right," 12-17-06) grudgingly acknowledges MassResistance as the instigator of the ongoing national re-examination of Romney's positions, he does not seem to have digested the parts of our report outlining:
- Romney's role in homosexual "marriage";
- Romney's role pushing homosexuality in our public schools (through his "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth"); and
- Romney's appointment of liberal and "gay" activists to administrative posts and judgeships (and leaving many judgeships open for Governor-elect Patrick to fill).
In today's Herald, George Will's commentary, "Ghosts of comments past haunt McCain, Romney," also fixates on Romney's 1994 statements to the Log Cabin Republicans, and ignores these major problems with his record.
For now, it seems, we have to settle for the mainstream media's hyper-focus on Romney's 1994 statements and the abortion issue. But they cannot go on ignoring these major stories much longer. Eventually they'll be forced to notice (by his Republican primary opponents) that his advocacy and implementation of "gay rights" has extended throughout his tenure as Governor. Will the Globe then refer to such information as a "screed" from the McCain or Brownback campaign headquarters?
