Check this out:

Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer.
/ Photo by Ron Sachs-Pool/Getty Images (CBS News) Brian Schweitzer, Montana's Democratic governor, invoked sensitive elements of Mitt Romney's family history Wednesday, noting in an interview with the Daily Beast that the presumptive Republican presidential candidate's "family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico."

The governor, who clarified that "I am not alleging by any stretch that Romney is a polygamist and approves of polygamy," and who did not explicitly criticize this element of Romney's history, was discussing the fact that the former Massachusetts governor's father was born in Mexico.


Schweitzer argued that it was not in Romney's interest to claim ties to the Hispanic community even though his father was born in Mexico because "then he'd have to talk about his family coming from a polygamy commune in Mexico." And women in America, he contended, are "not great fans of polygamy."

According to multiple accounts, including a report by the Boston Globe, Schweitzer's description of Romney's family history is accurate. Romney's father, George, was born in Mexico on a Mormon compound founded by his grandfather, Miles Park Romney, who had four wives. But neither George Romney nor his father (Mitt's grandfather) Gaskell Romney practiced polygamy.


Some conservatives are blasting Schweitzer's comment as inappropriate and irrelevant.


In the conservative magazine Commentary, writer Jonathan S. Tobin called Schweitzer's comments a "nasty piece of business" and "no more relevant to the 2012 campaign than an investigation into the marital practices of President Obama's ancestors in Kenya."


"Imagine if a Republican governor of an equally obscure state were to make comments about Obama's family tree," Tobin wrote. "The furor would be tremendous, and the incident would be treated in the mainstream media as emblematic of GOP racism."


Indeed, Mr. Obama's father also apparently practiced polygamy. According to the New York Times and other accounts, Mr. Obama's father had a wife in Kenya even while he was married to Mr. Obama's mother, Ann Dunham.


The Romney campaign did not respond to a request for comment, but the Obama campaign did send a statement to the Daily Beast arguing that targeting a candidate's religion is "out of bounds."

"Attacking a candidate's religion is out of bounds, and our campaign will not engage in it, and we don't think others should either," said Obama campaign spokesperson Lis Smith.

<quoted text>I thought it was funny when Obama accused Romney of being involved in producing drones for the Chinese government to "spy on its own people" when Obama has already ok'd using drones to spy on U.S. citizens on American soil. What a fooking hypocrite.
I thought it was the UTMOST in Hypocricy when Obama tried to blame Romney for Libya as being in essence politics as usual and he wouldn't have that for his folks.

Wake up, idiots.
Obama said nothing about leases.

He said oil production on federal lands has increased.

For Romney to ignore the BP oil spill's effect on leases is dishonest.

Kerry thought he was safe with the Navy, but after he joined, he was pushed into a swift boat.

He volunteered for Swift boat duty.

He had the money & pull t get a cushy ob if he wanted.

The pipeline itself wasn't the issue, it was the proposed route that would transect the Ogallala Aquifer that provides water for millions of residents in five states. Even the Republican governor of Nebraska was opposed to it. What nitwits like you seem to ignore is that oil from tar sands costs more to extract and refine and would in fact cause oil prices to go up.
You're an idiot.

It would've interferred with WIND MILL funding.

You can LIE to some of the people ALL of time Dupont--but you cannot LIE to ALL of the people some of the time!!!

HEY DUPONT--

TWO THOUSAND Jobs-LOST in the past two years here.

Who the hell would rely on coal in Massachusetts? NUCLEAR country up THAT way. Any IDIOT realizes that.

TWO THOUSAND (Plus) UNEMPLOYED people-from the LARGEST PAYROLL sectors of this region.

(and believe it or not-we had some IGNORANT enough to chastise local gvrnmt for STANDING up FOR the people and demanding the UI banks be replinished-KNOWING there just might be a need for it!! DemoCrapTIC IGNORANCE!)

While windmills in the west might be dandy-windmills for the REST is just IGNORANT!!!

WRONG.

When FORCED to answer the question--after STAMMERING about FIVE times thinking more campaign RHETORIC would suffice-he finally HAD to answer the question on the leases-and WHINED that they were being held to long so he brought to light his demand that people "use them or lose them"...in true COMMIETIC form.

2.TWO THOUSAND other people have since lost their jobs as well. At LEAST 1/5-if not more-of the work force.

So if someone stammers a little but speaks the truth and the other guy lies but says it assertively, you'll go with the liar. Good to know where your head is at.

Not sure who won the 90 minute insult fest on CNN but it appears that Mitt gets both his facts "and" his debating style from DB.

<quoted text>
I already showed the fact check from the WaPO stated the opposite.
Bain did. Factcheck says there is no proof that Romney was involved since this occurred in that time frame between when Romney claims he left Bain & when the SEC says he left Bain.

The real truth is Romney is listed as Bain CEO & Sole owner up until 2002. This would include the time frame when investment were made in these outsourcing companies.

It was Romney's company, he was CEO & we are supposed to believe he had no idea that these investments were made? Bull-freakin-crap.

Mitt had his own personal elevator to his office while gov. Of Mass. To avoid contact with anyone. He was uncomfortable last night and President Obama kept him on the defensive.
John Kerry called him: petulant!
