Richard Grenell, a former George W. Bush administration official and presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's controversial choice for national security spokesman, is leaving the campaign less than two weeks after his appointment. The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin, who broke the news Tuesday, suggested that the openly gay Grenell likely resigned because of a "full-court press by anti-gay conservatives." Grenell confirmed his resignation in a statement to Rubin: His statement: I have decided to resign from the Romney campaign as the Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obamaâ€™s foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign. I want to thank Governor Romney for his belief in me and my abilities and his clear message to me that being openly gay was a non-issue for him and his team. Richard Grenell, Controversial Mitt Romney Spokesman, Resigns Hmmmmmmm...... NO GAYS! NO WOMEN! NO SENIORS! NO UNIONS! NO MINORITIES! whats left for the GOP, .... Albinos? good luck in November!
