Chuck Norris, an out and proud conservative, is up in arms about the possibility of the Boy Scouts of America allowing openly gay scoutmasters. He's convinced the only reason that BSA National Board Member James Turley wants to "encourage" change in the organization is because Barack Obama is rewarding him for doing so.
We hate to burst Chucky's bearded bubble, but guess who else supports Turley's sinister vision? The 1994 version of Mitt Romney, that's who!
Yes, before Romneybot 2.0 hit the presidential campaign trail, the beta version was arguing for equality within the Boy Scouts of America. While debating against Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts's 1994 Senate election, Romney said:
“I believe that the Boy Scouts of America does a wonderful service for this country. I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”
Don't believe us? Check out the video (above) and watch him say it for yourself. In the same election, Romney firmly supported abortion rights too!
We wish that guy was running now. After losing to Kennedy and pursuing the Republican presidential nomination, Romney converted to basic conservative thinking and is too scared of losing votes to take a position he actually believes in.
At least, that's what his political history conveys anyway.
We hope Chuck doesn't karate chop his Romney endorsement in half now! Ha!
