Romney on Chick-fil-A: That’s not something that’s part of my campaign; Update: Obama ducks too

posted at 6:07 pm on August 3, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Examiner, I understand why he punted here. His retort to Reid’s tax-evasion smear last night was that it’s an obvious, grotesque attempt to hand the media a new distraction from Obama’s record. He just got back from a foreign policy trip/photo op that was also submerged in distractions, most notably his Olympics comments in London and his aide’s “kiss my ass” comments to the press in Poland. He’s just begun pushing a more positive message keyed to his biography to convince undecideds that he’s up to the job. The last thing he wants right now is another distraction wrapped around his ankles, particularly on a day when the news is about the latest disappointing jobs report.

Given that the Chick-fil-A question here was packaged with another question about Bachmann and the Muslim Brotherhood, he had two dilemmas. One: If he weighs in on either, that’s a story and now suddenly he’s being asked about gay marriage and Islamism instead of jobs for the middle class. If you want a candidate who’s more interested in culture-war issues than economic growth, try Romney 2008. Two: If he weighs in only on Chick-fil-A, the easier of the two topics, then there’ll be a separate story on why he specifically ducked the question about Bachmann and he’ll hear it from her supporters and from the media for dodging. He probably figured he was better off playing it safe (as usual) and passing on both. Hey — if you wanted a nominee who’d inch out on the highwire to answer any question put to him, you should have nominated Newt.

Still, hurts to know that even a tool like Mike Bloomberg is capable of offering a righteous answer on CFA when called on to do so:

Critics trying to shut Chick-fil-A because its CEO opposes gay marriage are undermining the very essence of the Constitution, Mayor Bloomberg declared today in a stirring defense of the embattled fast food chain.

“It isn’t the right thing to do and it isn’t what America stands for,” Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show. “And those people who don’t like (Chick-fil-A) don’t understand their rights were protected by people who took a difficult position in the past and stood by it. They stood up so everybody else would be free.”…

“What’s for sure is that government cannot in the United States, in America, under the Constitution, be run where you have a litmus test for the personal views of somebody when they want something in the commercial world.”

Barney Frank also managed to say a word against government discrimination towards Chick-fil-A. Ah well. Maybe Mitt will get another question about this tomorrow and say something about free speech even if he ends up avoiding the subject of gay marriage. Speaking of which, enjoy the second clip below. Not sure what’s gotten into Stewart lately, but this is a rare week during which most of his big hits have been at the expense of Democrats. Exit quotation via Mediaite: “Pretty sure you can’t outlaw a company with perfectly legal business practices because you find their CEO’s views repellant. Not sure which amendment covers that, but it’s probably in the top 1.”

Update: Evidently the “evolution” is over:

Obama, already in favor of gay marriage, has little to gain by weighing in against a private company that operates primarily in red states on an issue that has already inflamed social conservatives. He has treaded lightly on the issue on the campaign trail, touting the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy but avoided new calls for legalizing gay marriage since announcing he supported it in May.

Several officials in Obama’s White House and campaign did not respond Friday to requests for comment about Chick-fil-A. And there’s reason for the president to keep the issues away from the center of his reelection campaign. Obama can’t afford to alienate religious conservatives in the black community or give blue-collar Democratic whites in Ohio and Virginia another reason to vote against him.

Not a word from the president of the United States in defense of a business owner’s right to hold the political views he prefers without fear of government retribution?

My take.

kingsjester on August 4, 2012 at 10:02 AM

Good commentary. As I posted earlier, there is a time to be silent and a time to speak. He should have spoken on this CFA issue. But as a First Amendment issue, not a “gay” issue.

Whichever way he wanted to take a stand on it, would have been fine. The important thing was to take a stand with the majority of Americans on the issue.

The author missed what this is about, since he said “at the anti-gay marriage chicken restaurant.” The CFA restaurants are not anti-gay.

He made other good points, but it looks like he missed the boat on what started the controversy.

bluefox on August 4, 2012 at 11:01 AM

Alberta_Patriot on August 4, 2012 at 10:57 AM

NO he has not. That’s what this thread is about!! He passed.
Putting up Youtube videos isn’t the same thing as making a statement on a current issue that the American people are involved in. Others have spoken out, but not Romney. That is the problem.

He had nothing to lose and everything to gain. But again, he passed.

As the political climate changes and issues arise, he must step up to the plate. He needed to address THIS issue, not what the issue was 3 weeks ago. We’ve moved on!

I strongly agree with you. We have a Congress and a current holder of the White House that aren’t standing for the American people and or the Country for that matter. We don’t need a Republican Candidate for the Presidency to do the same. If not Romney, then who? I’ll answer my own question: Sarah Palin.

bluefox on August 4, 2012 at 11:19 AM

Mittens never has been a man of courage. His primary claim to fame is that he is not as bad as barack Obama.

That’s why it is so foolish for the idiot Mittbots to keep alienating conservatives. We don’t like or respect the man. We are willing to hold out knows but these morons make it difficult.

I would disagree. the current president has indeed taken a strong stand on this issue (the first in history to openlysupport gay marriage)It is essential that Romney stop equivicating on these key issues.

And kingjester, are you serious that principle doesn’t matter and
only winning does? What is it we care to win for? Why fight the good fight if it matters not why we’re fighting?

The sad reality of American presidential politics is that stupid pretentious people called independents decide elections. Offend them and you are toast. Save your conservative purity for congressional and local ele toons and help Mitt get elected an whatever terms that drive Obama out.

aloysiusmiller on August 4, 2012 at 12:02 PM

Once again, Romney proves what a spineless putz he is..

If he weren’t running against the “antichrist”, he would have NO CHANCE of winning!

What his actions continuously prove, is that even if he DOES beat Obama, we are STILL going to be AT LEAST 4 years away from making the necessary changes in Washington to fix this country. We need somebody with “testicular fortitude”, that will state his convictions and STAND BY THEM, whether the media likes it or not! When you act like a milquetoast putz that doesn’t want to offend anybody, that shows me that you WILL NOT make bold or necessary controversial decisions that will help this country!

As a conservative, I DESPISE liberals, and ALL that Obama stands for, and I WANT SO VERY BADLY TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT HIS OPPONENT, but Romney just REFUSES to give us conservatives any reason to like him!

C’mon Mitt! Make JUST ONE controversial stand that conservatives love and liberals hate, the FIRST TIME YOU ARE ASKED ABOUT IT! Not 2 days later, after you and your team of eunuchs have taken a poll about where you should stand on the issue!

We are BEGGING YOU, Mitt! PLEASE help make us WANT to support you!!!

Alberta_Patriot on August 4, 2012 at 11:42 AM

That video is from May so it’s not current.

The CFA issue just happened this past week or so. The American people are supporting CFA and the CEO in particular. That is due to the threats against his business and attempts by States to prevent him opening new businesses. Why? Because he expressed his belief on Marriage. What if he expresses his view on Adoption, Contraceptives, Abortion and anything else?

No, the issue that Romney should have addressed is that a Private Sector business has been threatened because the CEO holds a belief that others disagree with.

Your comments are the reason we need to support and elect as many Conservative Candidates for the House & Senate as we can. In addition to unseen’s comments, we need to replace Speaker Boehner and Senate Majority Leader McConnell. Then we may have a fighting chance to correct issues.

bluefox on August 4, 2012 at 1:38 PM

Obama ducks too.

That’s to be expected. O had to kowtow to the gay militants in order to satisfy the base. Now he wants the issue to be gone. Romney is doing the Mr Ed or Mr Lame impression by not capitalizing on this issue. It seems a businessman who is used to capitalizing on things would know about that. Romney: show your support for conservatives standing behind CFA!

anotherJoe on August 4, 2012 at 5:09 PM

Mitt has been a rabid supporter of the Gay/Lesbian Nazi during his only Public Office as Governor of Mass. He is unable to stand with Pro Family/Marriage w/o stepping on his past. Mitt is probably as worthless a candidate that has a very slight chance of winning election.

When it comes to politics, Romney is a gutless back-stabbing punk. If he’s this much of a coward on an issue where Jon Stewart, the View biddies and Nanny Bloomberg are on the side of the angels, what makes anyone think he’ll do anything once he gets elected other than flipping off movement conservatism as he has done all his life?

2. Didn’t like Sarah Palins clothes

… Wow…

This is how you guys came to the conclusion that Romney secretly caused the collapse of the McCain campaign?

Here’s a newsflash for you… Romney didn’t endorse Obama. McCain did. McCain said on camera in front of a microphone “Obama is an honorable man and Americans have nothing to fear from him becoming president”.

Romney didn’t cancel McCains campaign for a week in September to have him just sit and spin in Washington, McCain did. Romney didn’t even give McCain the idea, Steve Schmidt did. Romney never hired Schmidt, McCain did. Romney didn’t suck body parts at HBO to have a trash movie made that blamed everything on Palin, Steve Schmidt did.

The people who kamkazied the McCain ’08 campaign and got Obambi elected are Steve Schmidt and John McCain.

bluegill on August 4, 2012 at 9:19 PM

I’m going to diverge from Bluegill on this one. I like Sarah Palin. She’s a hell of a lot smarter than her media elitist critics will acknowledge (and they know it, which is why they hate her so much). She’s probably even smarter than her own fans realize.

Losing an election as a VP candidate is the Bermuda Triangle of American politics. With the exception of Walter Mondale, who came back from his 1980 loss to be the victim of a 49 state electoral ass-beating at the hands of Reagan in ’84, once you fall in it, you don’t come out.

Ferraro in ’88, Bentsen in ’92, Quayle in ’96, Kemp in 2000, Leiberman in ’04 and Edwards in ’08… in each of those years, just 4 years after losing the VP slot, they were all basically non-entities.

Not so with Palin. Today, the Sarah Palin endorsement is the most feared weapon in a republican primary fight. She’s the RINOs worst nightmare. Sarah Palin is still visible and making waves both in front of and behind the scenes and no republican wants to anger her. We were warned back in ’08 that the Alaskan countryside was strewn with the bodies of her enemies. That she is still around raising hell today when all who came before her have vanished with a whimper is a testament to her cunning and intelligence.

She is likely to continue being a force in American politics for decades to come even if she never takes the presidential oath.

I’m glad she’s on our side.

ROMNEY ANTI-PALIN

Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers, some of whom are currently working for Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin’s bid for the White House, have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election. “Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won’t be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,” says one former Romney aide, now working for McCain-Palin. “The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney. http://spectator.org/archives/2008/10/27/post-defeat-planners

Yet another reason to fight against the Rom-0bama nomination.

The “hate GOP, ruin Romney” efforts originated with McCainPalin ticket.

“Ultimately it is a woman’s right to make such a decision during the early stage of pregnancy”
- “conservative” Gary Johnson on abortion

“Denying marriage rights and benefits to gay couples is discrimination, plain and simple.”
- Gary Johnson

“I am not a social conservative in any way, shape, or form.”
- Gary Johnson

Way to go, Danno. You would rather have a gay-marrying baby killer in the White House than a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who supports christian values.

Palin also made clear that she and Governor Romney have a good relationship:

Speaking personally, there is no hatchet to bury or olive branch that needs to be passed between Mitt Romney and myself. We have a good relationship and I have great respect for him and I am so thankful the GOP has a strong candidate who understands the private sector and what it takes to get the economy roaring again.

This is great news for Romney. As I pointed out above, Sarah is a shrewd, cunning politician who has defied the odds. Her endorsement is highly valued among conservatives. Having Sarahs support is a good sign that Romney will unite the party and drive Bambi from the Oval Office in November.

Indeed I did read the article, and while Sarah showed her typical penchant to be classy the underlying message is unmistakable.

She doesn’t need, or want the GOP elitists, Romney included, and he knows what he can do with his olive branch.

So now you’re accusing Sarah of lying?

Why do you hate Sarah Palin that you attack her like this?

How do you expect to help the baby killer win when you are driving away both Romney and Palin supporters?

Reading IS fundamental, and as you’ve proven you are incapable of comprehending the written word you had better tell your mommy to go get the reciept from your liberal education and get a refund. You should go do so when you leave your basement to raid your mommy’s refrigerator.
