Gay Republicans Go For Romney

The Log Cabin Republicans are as divided as ever over the GOP presidential candidate, but Mitt is their man reports The Advocate:

Log Cabin Republicans, the largest national group representing gay Republicans, announced its endorsement of Mitt Romney for president Tuesday, saying the decision shows, “We are Americans first.”

In a separate explanatory statement, however, the group also said its endorsement of the former Massachusetts governor was “qualified” and that it planned to be “most active” in working for its endorsed House and Senate candidates.

When I recently came across this video from the recent CPAC conference, seems like it's history repeating itself with another group called GOPride. These folks actually do vote, keep that in mind, Grand Old Party ... after all, Ron Paul — who could care less about gay Americans serving in the military — did win the 2010 CPAC presidential straw poll, by a wide margin...
