The Mormon that eventually gets elected president will be a democrat not a
republican. The rebublicans are strict born again evangelical theocratists that
will never vote for a Mormon.Harry Reid has had the most powerfull
position of any mormon I can think of, a democrat. Because democrats actually
believe in freedom of spiritual thought.
Dear Screwdrive: Oh, HONESTLY! You're not really serious.Jon
Huntsman is like the guy who's dead and won't lie down. I just hate to see him
wasting all this time and money on a dead-end effort. I wish he would just call
it quits and look for other career options.
Huntsman has no appeal among conservatives.Conservatives drove the 2010
midterm victories.Conservatives are key for any primary victory because
they are mobilized and have become politically active.He's never moved out
of low single digit territory, not even when he announced.But he has some
appeal. Perhaps he would do well as...maybe...ambassador to China.
Re: Screwdriver | 11:50 a.m. Sept. 10, 2011"Because democrats

conservative, believe in more self reliance and less federal intrusion. Next
week Mitt Romney will speak in South Carolina about the NLRB attempt to stop
Boeing from building aircraft in a right to work state. Mormons support the
concept of right to work and hence ... Romney.
@ Screwdriver, who said "Because democrats actually believe in freedom of
spiritual thought."They may believe in 'freedom of spiritual
thought' but they'll FORCE you to give everything in your wallet through their
never-ending increase of taxes and their insatiable desire to "share the
I'm sure Huntsman is a nice guy (his dad is a true giant!) and he'd be far
better than Obama, but he's a RINO (Republican In Name Only) who has been
polling for months in the low single digits. There's no way he'll
win. He might as well quit now.I give him 4 weeks. Six tops.
Re: ScrewdriverIt would be more correct to assert Democrats believe
in freedom FROM spiritual thought. In our schools, roads and anything else
connected to government.In that sense your right, perhaps Huntsman
would have a better shot as a Democrat.
