Romney hires national security spokesman

Romney hires a Bushbot, Richard A. Grenell, with deep ties to the UN as his national security spokesman. On a side note, it's being reported that Grenell is openly gay.

Mitt Romney has hired Richard A. Grenell, a veteran Republican communications strategist who served in the George W. Bush administration, as his national security and foreign policy spokesman, a campaign official said Thursday.

During all eight years of President George W. Bush’s tenure, Grenell served as the administration’s director of communications and public diplomacy at the United Nations. He advised four U.S. ambassadors to the United Nations: John D. Negroponte, John C. Danforth, John R. Bolton and Zalmay Khalilzad.
