Clearly you don't understand Mormons and have never befriended any. Try doing that once, what you will see with your own eyes will completely change your opinion of them. I don't subscribe to their religious beliefs, but I do have a tremendous amount of respect for their focus on family, community, and charity. This is based on my first hand experiences with them across the globe, not some survey that can be skewed any which way. They are wonderful friends to have, and very good people. Try opening your eyes beyond the liberal propaganda, there's a wonderful world out there with great people in it.

Many of the Liberals are Godless anyway. Being chatitable to the community wouldn't have an effect on them.

Congrats, there's something you know less about than politics.
George H W Bush was president in 2006? I thought it was his son George W Bush.

Florida: Another Major Newspaper Abandons Obama, Polls Show Romney Up

Posted on October 28, 2012

Last weekend, it was the Orlando Sentinel reversing its 2008 course by endorsing Mitt Romney for president.

NOW the South Florida Sun-Sentinel is turning heads by following suit!

Many are holding on by their fingernails, desperate for signs of an economic recovery that will help them provide for themselves, their employees, their customers and their communities. When President Obama came into office in 2009, the economy was in freefall and though untested, he inspired us with his promise of hope and change. Now, four years later, we have little reason to believe he can turn things around. So while we endorsed Obama in 2008, we recommend voters choose Republican Mitt Romney on Nov. 6.

Romney gave $4 million to charity last year, rendering your statement null and void.
If you'd done just a little bit of your own thinking and research, you might not sound like the clueless, parroting fool you are.
Romney tithes to the Mormon fake Church. Mormon gives less than 1% of its revenues to charity. That is 1/30th of what real churches do in the USA. Mormon = cheapskates.

Romney is a direct descendent of the criminal, polygamist, child and woman abusing anti-Christian Mormon Church Apostles.

Romney's entire life has been spent in Mormonland who ordained that Romney, not Huntsman, would run this go around representing the Anti-Christian LDS.

Romney tithes to LDS and, in return, gets vast Mormon political support using YOUR tax dollars for himself.

Romney believes that Mormon are superior people who will watch as non-Mormons die in the battle against Russia and Iran just as Romney hid in France during the Vietnam War.

New Poll A From Left-Leaning Firm Is Pretty Brutal For Obama
Brett LoGiurato | Oct. 28, 2012

Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama by a single point in today's Public Policy Polling daily tracking survey, but the numbers inside the poll display a clearly worse picture for the president.

Romney's one-point lead is a slight increase from Saturday, when the candidates were tied. But a deep dive into the numbers paint the picture of a president whose approval is on the decline and is struggling to pick up votes with Independents.

Consider the following numbers:

Obama's approval-to-disapproval rating sits at just 44-52, which is actually worse than Gallup's tracking on Saturday.
Obama is losing the favorability battle, which has been a key strength for him throughout the campaign. His favorable-to-unfavorable rating sits underwater at 46-50.

Romney's favorable rating, on the other hand, is a positive 49-45.

Romney leads the self-identified Independent vote by an astounding 16 points. Among this crucial group, Obama's approval-to-disapproval is 33-60, and Romney's favorability is 53-37.

These numbers are not a drastic one-day change from Saturday Obama has been losing Independents by double digits for the past five days of PPP tracking, and his approval with them has been well underwater, too.

...that's an awful lot of hate & intolerance for someone so schooled on religion. Are you a radical Muslim by chance?
