Boughton Struck By Lightning

"I don't know, I'm unsure."
Here is one odd disclosure that should leave most Connecticut Republicans scratching their heads about at least one CTGOP Mayor's bid for the Governorship.

On January 31, 2014, CTGOP Gubernatorial Candidates met in Canterbury Connecticut to present their positions on various issues to a roomful of party loyalists.  At the end of the meeting, attendees were asked a series of lightning round questions to which they were to reply Yes, No, or I'm unsure.

At the 1:30 mark, the moderator posed the question, "Do you support the idea of Transgender Bathrooms?"  To most reasonable people - not just Republicans, the obvious answer should be a resounding NO.   Few parents wish to see their children being forced to share public bathrooms with mentally-unbalanced individuals or cross-dressing freaks or have them exposed to a legislative-mandated risk of perversion, molestation, or other mental illness (see this example in Stamford).  The very idea that Connecticut Democrats crafted such legislation and passed it should tell you all you need to know about the state of the Connecticut liberal activist mind.

When the question was asked of Mayor Boughton, who often claims to be the conservative in the race, he responded with an ambiguous and disappointing, "I don't know, I'm unsure" which was then followed by a rather obnoxious belly laugh.  I'm not quite sure what he found so funny, and you have to wonder if Peter Wolfgang, and the people down at the Family Institute of Connecticut were as equally amused by Boughton's lack of conviction on a key moral issue.  At least The King was happy to see that the rest of the CTGOP field responded with a "No".  (Even Tom Foley got it right).

When we can't trust a guy who's one of Connecticut's leading Republican mayors to fight to protect our children, or reverse perverse legislation, then how can we ever support him for higher office?  It seems like a little too much of Linda McMahon and Jerry Labriola, Jr have rubbed off on poor Mark Boughton. And as we look around - it's clearly becoming an epidemic. The King feels we can write-off Mr. Boughton as a man who desires higher office but lacks the political will to combat immoral liberalism and make changes best suited for Connecticut families - which is why he aught to just stay put in the Hat City.
