It’s not often that Mitt Romney says anything that real conservatives can agree with, so when he does it’s newsworthy. The Politico highlights one of these rare exceptions where OvenMitt gets something right for once.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, asked about putting a Muslim in his presidential Cabinet, said that he “cannot see that a Cabinet position would be justified” based on the percentage of Muslims in the U.S., according to an Islamic businessman who asked the question at a fundraising reception.
Okay, he got it half right. Population has nothing to do with it. Buying into the religion of pieces does.
Kevin Madden, Romney’s national press secretary, told Politico: “At this point, we’re not focused on what Gov. Romney’s Cabinet might look like. But the governor does not believe that in order to effectively fight radical jihad you need to have Muslims serving in the Cabinet.”
Not unless you want to lose the war on Terror by admitting a traitor into your inner circle. Well done, Mitt. It’s good to see you using your head for something other than a place to hang your toupee.
Update: Reformulating the population argument, I think I can agree with it: based on the percentage of Mormons in the population, I cannot see that a Mormon President Romney would be justified at this time.
