Romney loses his National Security advisor…because he’s gay


So Romney’s national security advisor, a man eminently qualified for his position, has resigned. Because of pressure from the far right over the fact he is gay. And because the Romney camp was unwilling to support him.

This is a man who George W Bush had appointed as a communications director to 4 UN ambassadors. A man a degree from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, a man with his own major international PR firm – Capitol Media Partners. But a man who happens to live with his male partner of 9 years, and who wants the right to marry.

It is a sad statement when a man so qualified to do his job, is forced out because of who he loves. And it says a lot about Romney- that he would hire an openly gay man in the first place- but then fail to support him in the face of a loud, but small, and mean-spirited minority.

And of course- the right remains oddly silent….

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
