Anti-gay conservatives run spokesman out of Romney campaign

 Two weeks ago, the Romney campaign hired Richard Grenell to be a foreign policy spokesman/advisor.  Today, he resigned, citing pressure from anti-gay conservatives who could not countenance a homosexual in a position of any prominence in the Republican Party.

It would be one thing if he were an advisor on social policy, or marriage policy, or whatever.  But he was hired for a completely unrelated job, and still he was run out of the campaign.

While the conservative voices that attacked him were not in the campaign and do not represent most conservatives, the campaign didn't do much to speak out in support of Grenell.

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association is now questioning Romney's leadership ability because he can be pushed around so easily.
