What's also disappointing is how, once again, Romney shows he has no core. As Jennifer Rubin reported, Romney did almost nothing to defend Grenell.:
During the two weeks after Grenell's hiring was announced the Romney campaign did not put Grenell out to comment on national security matters and did not use him on a press foreign policy conference call. Despite the controversy in new media and in conservative circles, there was no public statement of support for Grenell by the campaign and no supportive social conservatives were enlisted to calm the waters.
I guess if you stand in front of Romney's ambitions he will throw you under the bus and won't even think about defending you (that would require a backbone and strength of conviction, which Romney's record shows he doesn't have). Isn't that the type of thinking we are trying to get OUT of the White House?
