Marriott board helps fellow Mormon Romney -- gives up porn

First, Mitt Romney resigned from the board of Marriott, after serving for many years while the hotel chain made millions and millions of dollars from in-room porn. There is no evidence that Romney complained about the practice when he was in a position to do something about it, despite the fact that pornography is contrary to the values of the Mormon church.

Romney, who has been desperately and unpersuasively trying to pass himself off as a champion of conservative moral values after supporting abortion for most of his political career and single-handedly legalizing homosexual marriage in Massachusetts, had been rightly criticized for looking the other way while the fellow Mormons who dominate the Marriott board made a killing preying on the moral weakness of its guests.

Now the board, in what appears to be a transparent attempt to boost Mitt's chances in 2012, has decided to drop porn from its new properties, and intends to phase out porn in existing hotels starting in 2013. That's a convenient date — if Romney fails in his White House bid, the board can phase it right back in.

Romney is polling well right now, but is avoiding the Tea Party like the bubonic plague. He doesn't want to get anywhere near them, and he doesn't want them to get anywhere near him. His conversion to social conservatism smacks of convenience rather than conviction. Mitt's problem is not that he's a Mormon; it's that he's not Mormon enough. Bottom line: Romney has no credibility on social issues. Are Republican voters paying attention?
