Iowans for Romney: ROMNEY NEVER SAID/IMPLIED THAT HE WAS MORE PRO-GAY THAN TED KENNEDY!!

Excerpted from this post at Iowans for Romney
Sorry for the caps . . . but I've seen/read/heard so many people just flat out getting this wrong. Even talk show hosts/commentators are just not getting it and are either knowingly or unknowingly spreading this misinformation. ... This whole hullabaloo comes mainly from the letter Romney sent to the Log Cabin Republicans about 4 weeks before the 1994 general election ... In the letter Romney stated " . . . I will provide MORE EFFECTIVE leadership than my opponent." and also promises to make "equality" for homosexuals "a mainstream concern. My opponent cannot do this. I can and will." Romney's point was that Teddy was such a left-wing figure that his advocacy COULD NOT make ANY of the "gay rights" issues "a MAINSTREAM concern." Romney could have, because he is not and was not a part of the liberal establishment.
