Bryan Fischer Agrees – Romney’s A Wimp

May 4, 2012

When I wrote yesterday of the Ric Grenell affair, I made the point that if Romney can’t stand up to the likes of Bryan flippin’ Fischer, perhaps his ability to stand up to anyone should be questioned. Today, Fischer made the argument for me. Transcript and video courtesy of Right Wing Watch (emphasis mine):

Fischer: Let me ask you this question, people have raised this question, if Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me? I don’t think Romney is realizing the doubts that this begins to raise about his leadership. I don’t think for one minute that Mitt Romney did not want this guy gone; he wanted this guy gone because there was not one word of defense, not a peep, from the Romney camp to defend him. They just went absolutely stone cold silent, they put a bag over Grenell’s head, they even asked him to organize this phone conference and they didn’t even let him speak at the conference that he organized.



Wow. I can’t imagine what outcome Fischer is hoping for in this election, but this kind of thing certainly won’t help Romney.

At any rate, it’s an excellent cautionary tale. Had Romney stuck to his principles, he may have offended a few social conservatives — but by kowtowing to them, he’s betrayed a much deeper flaw.
