'Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi, in Des Moines Thursday night, said that despite the outcome Clinton is still in "great shape'

Why is Suozzi in Des Moines??? What justification does he have to not be at his desk with the rest of the 'best and brightest', earning his 'well deserved' raise??????
Hey Suozzi, 10 feet beyond the Rosedale border, nobody knows nor cares who you are.

Do you "want" Mormon Supreme Court Judges? They are "Appointed For Life" by the President. Mitt Romney, if elected, would have opportunities to appoint these judges, along with other Federal Judges?

Romney, a Phoney, Plastic, Flip-Flopper, and weirdo Mormon Cult Sect member, doesn't even believe in his own "wacky" faith. Plus, would he also attempt to incorporate his false faith views, into our country, as fellow Mormon Cult member, Mike Leavitt, did as Gov. of Utah.

The "roots" of their Cult begin with unearthed,"Brass or Golden" plates allegedly written in an otherwise unknown language called Reformed Egyptian, and deciphered with the aid of two stones called Urim and Thummim, these texts became the Book of Mormon. So it really doesn't matter what irrational belief you have as long as you have some irrational beliefs, that include a wacky collection of man-made Moronical codswallop.

Printed in the Salt Lake City Tribune, Romney laughed and replied, "I don't recall God speaking to anyone since the time of Moses and the burning bush." Mitt's quote about God not speaking to anyone since Moses raises more questions: What about LDS Church founder Smith?
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints -- which Romney is a practicing member of -- believes that God has spoken to many who followed Moses. For example, the church believes God spoke to LDS founder Joseph Smith which allowed him to find the brass plates -- which became the Book of Mormon.

Governor and his top advisers had 'seminary' meetings to discuss the role of LDS teachings in government By Robert Gehrke
The Salt Lake Tribune
Article Last Updated: 12/30/2007
Former Utah governor and current Cabinet secretary of Health and Human Resources, Mike Leavitt sought to infuse the lessons of his religion into his inaugural address and into state policy, conducting a series of "Early Morning Seminary" classes in which he and top advisers discussed how to incorporate "just and holy" Mormon principles into his governance, archival records show. The group reviewed stories from the Book of Mormon and how they applied to government, the newspaper reported.
The disclosure of those 1996 meetings, never before reported, comes at a time when the interface between God and government is dominating political dialogue and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been forced to take great pains to assure distrustful voters that his Mormon faith will not drive his policy decisions.

A Utah Republican consultant, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic, said he was surprised the meeting transcripts ended up in the state archives. This is the kind of thing I would've guessed that Brigham Young would've had when we had a theocracy here rather than necessarily in modern times," he said.

Leavitt's group held sessions at the Governor's Mansion, and opened with a prayer before the group explored the Book of Mormon stories of Korihor, the Gadianton Robbers, Alma and Mosiah, and King Benjamin, seeking insight into what LDS scripture defines as the proper role of government and discussing how they could be communicated in a "bilingual" manner to a secular audience.
During the meetings, Leavitt said the discussions were not official state business and asked staffers to keep the conversations confidential. After the newspaper obtained the documents, Leavitt asked that they be pulled from state archives, saying the discussions were private because they contained personal or even "sacred" thoughts from members of his staff. The records were removed and are now the subject of a 30-day review.

I hate to break it to you.
There already are many Mormon federal judges and anyone could be appointed by Huckabee. What would do then impeach him?

I do not know what you be afraid of. They are just people and put their pants on just like you do. one leg at a time.

as for early morning scripture study. I see nothing wrong with anyone starting their day contemplating the words of god. Even if it is not the god I worship.
