Romney Grows A Pair

Governor Mitt Romney, of Massachusetts prohibited the use of any state resources in connection with the visit of former Iranian President Mohammed Khatami, who is scheduled to speak at Harvard on the eve of the 5th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Romney said:
``There are people in this state who have suffered from terrorism, and taking even a dollar of their money to support a terrorist is unacceptable."

Romney is considered a GOP contender for President in 2008. Whether it is purely a political move on his part or an actual matter of conscience doesn't really matter to me in this case. He did the right thing. Unfortunately, he has no direct control over the resources of the city of Boston who promised police resources to protect the ex-leader of a terrorist sponsoring country.

Romney gets a measure of respect for me on this one. Keep up the good work Guv!
