Romney is an intelligent candidate who would probably make a decent president.
But he cannot win. The South will stay home rather than vote for a Mormon, and
no Republican can win without the South. QED.
Completely agree with Irony Guy.And certainly many think this
unfair. But, honestly, how many solid LDS would vote for a Muslim, Buddhist or
Agnostic?Isn't that really the same thing?
Wow.Lots of stereotyping going on with their assumptions today.Perry= Neanderthal?Fundamentalists hate Mormons and would not vote
for one?Voters crave "moderates?"Perhaps it looks
that way through the liberal prism shared by this pair of pundits, and they
probably said the same things about Ronald Reagan when he was running.However, like most in the media, they have left the liberals and Democrats and
their supporters exempt from jusstifiable criticism about their policies and
re: Joe Blow: If the candidate were a Muslim, Buddhist or Agnostic that had
personally ran a corporation that funded and established American companies,
came into a politically charged and fiasco filled Olympic process and made it a
huge success, and was elected governor in an eastern state with a long standing
record of voting for the opposite party, and had supported candidates from his
party throughout the country with his fund raising and speeches for the last 3
plus years, then I think LDS would give the person votes no matter their
religion. After all, they have been voting for President for those not of their
religion in every election since statehood.
Hello.. Great, politically correct response.Now, do you
honestly believe what you wrote?
If Huntsman is not VP pick, he should run as an independent. I'd say Democrats
should be worried about that scenario, except that I think they'd ultimately be
very satisfied with Jon Huntsman as president. Delegates crave wingnuts, but
the American voters want a moderate.
Belive me I would rather see Romney as president rather than Perry. As an
independent I'll vote Romney. Then we'll see, but I'm not a conservative type.
The tea party stands ready to torpedo everything the Republicans try to do, just
to continue to be the tea party representing the setting the clock back to 1920.
