“Romney should encourage people to be kind. People look up to him for guidance. He’s supposed to be a leader, but he fell short. [Grenell] was loyal to him, and became a staff person. Romney did him wrong.”

“Romney should have given him more support. He has the power to do that. He’s in a higher position than most people. It made no sense for him to sit back and watch all the criticism happen. I fault Romney for that. And I wish [Grenell] well.”

“I give Romney credit for giving him a chance. Sometimes you have to take a chance, and hope for the best. If we didn’t take risks, we’d still have segregation. I think it’s commendable that Romney hired him. It was [Grenell’s] choice to resign. That’s on him, not Romney.”

“Grenell shouldn’t have resigned. He could have paved the way for other gays. The protests would have died down in time. All the commotion would have blown away. [Grenell] should have been more accepting of his situation. He could have made history.”
