"Surprising"? Really?

I only have one thing to say about this:
Richard Grenell, an openly gay and longtime Republican foreign policy spokesman hired last month by Mitt Romney’s campaign, abruptly resigned on Tuesday after antigay elements in the party criticized his appointment and some Republican advisers said Mr. Grenell had been sidelined by the campaign during a busy foreign policy week. The Romney campaign issued a statement saying that it had sought to keep Mr. Grenell from quitting. And according to some Republicans, while Mr. Grenell’s sexual orientation was not an issue for the campaign, the Romney team had cut Mr. Grenell out of the loop on some issues after feeling a surprising pressure from some social conservatives.
And that is: If it was "surprising" to Romney that social conservatives didn't like an openly gay man working with the presumptive Republican nominee for President, then he is genuinely too out of touch to be walking around on his own.

Not sure whether Mitt's just genuinely out of touch, or in fact fiendishly calculating? And if the latter, calculating WHAT -- assessing if there's been any change lately in polarization among conservative pundits and if so, in which direction? (Note to Grenell: Living well is the best revenge).
