R. Clark Cooper and the Log Cabin Republicans have been playing games for weeks now trying NOT to “officially” endorse Mitt Romney for President. Many LGBT journalist including myself have speculated that Cooper and the LCR would make their endorsement at the very last-minute as to avoid fallout from the LGBT community. But while Cooper and the LCR may not put their endorsement on paper. Their intentions and loyalty to the Republican party over the LGBT community became apparent last night last night during the second 2012 Presidential Debates as both the LCR and Cooper’s Twitter feeds became nothing more than a Obama bashing, social media endorsement for the anti-gay Mitt Romney.
One of the most hypocritical Tweets from the LCR last night came in the form of slamming President Obama on ENDA (The Employment Non-Discrimination Act)
And while ENDA has seemed to be a bit of a problem for the Obama administration at least it’s still on the table. Romney on the other hand has been very vocal on the fact that he does not support ENDA or the repeal of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) for that matter and has kowtowed to many anti-gay religious extremist groups. In public the LCR has called this a “stumbling point” for their endorsement of Mitt Romney. But it’s obviously last night it was NOT a matter of contention when it comes to an “unofficial” endorsement like the one made via Twitter when R. Clark Cooper and the Log Cabin Republicans showed their true face to the LGBT Community.
Both of them.
