Really?

The subject is mormon instead of the economy, jobs, DEpendence on FOREIGN energy, high cost of gas, high cost of food

and so many articles on Romney's religion.

Too bad the focus in 2008 was not on Obama's religion, or lack there of.

Guess it coincides with the democrat platform that removed the 1 reference to God

Will the democrats remove UNDER GOD from the pledge of allegiance, too?

It's your choice in NOvember

How do you want this nation to proceed?

Reid is no more a faithful Mormon than Obama is a liberal Democrat. Both are just political hacks.

I said on these forums back in the spring that any picking on Romney's Mormonism by fellow Republicans would be small potatoes compared to what the Democrats would do in the general election.
It is happening.

Speaking of Mormon Church history:

"George Romney was born in Mexico and was 5 years old when a revolution forced his family members in 1912 to flee their Mormon colony and seek refuge in the United States. The Mormon exiles lost their homes, farms, and most of their belongings, were welcomed by the United States, and benefited from a $100,000 refugee fund established by Congress.

But there are other elements to the Romney story that may explain why he doesn’t tell the full tale on the campaign trail. The reason that George was born in Mexico is that his grandfather - Mitt’s great-grandfather - had taken refuge there in order to escape US laws against polygamy"

A government bailout is so nice when you are a
down-on-your-luck Republican. And for some reason, it isn't socialism then.

Romney might draw some flack for being a Mormon because he
actually is a Mormon.

Obama gets nasty criticism for being a Muslim even
though he isn't a Muslim.

Now where is your sense of proportion?

Americans don't care about Romney's religion!

They didn't care about Obama's Reverend Wright screaming out in Obama's church:

"GOD DAMN, AMERICA"

and add to that the fact the Obamas rarely attend 'church'. The five times they have attended church have been a photo op.

It's the economy, JOBS, DEpendence on FOREIGN energy, high cost of GAS, high cost of FOOD, the decrease in the value of their homes.

It's not Romney's religion..that's a distraction tactic to keep the discussion away from the vulnerable Obama economy.

Mitt Romney will help families and he'll put millions of people to work and make America produce its OWN ENERGY, and stop sending American money to foreign countries who sell their energy to us.

If Obama is re-elected our economy will be sluggish for decades, DECADES!

Remember it's Obama's OWN Secretaries of Energy and Transportation who BOTH stated they wanted to see the price of gas in AMERICA, reach the price of gas in Europe...$7-$8 a gallon

If Obama's re-elected EXPECT GAS PRICES TO SOAR TO EUROPEAN PRICES.

It's your decision in NOvember.

Obama's way - SEVEN-EIGHT DOLLARS A GALLON

or

Romney's way - produce our own energy and at the same time put Americans to work!

Your choice!

So if you are willing to analyze Mitt's great-grandfather, will you analyze Barack's father?

Barack Obama's Half Brother Discovered in Hut in Kenya
Wednesday August 20, 2008

Barack Obama's youngest half brother has been living in a shanty town on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, the Italian edition of Vanity Fair reports.

"No-one knows who I am," George Hussein Onyango Obama, 26, told the magazine. "I live here on less than a dollar a month."

George's shack – which measures only 6 feet by 10 feet – features football posters and a photograph of the Democratic presidential hopeful from a newspaper.

"I live like a recluse, no-one knows I exist," said George, who has the same father as the Illinois senator.

"If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related," he added. "I am ashamed," he said of the way he lives.

George, who recently enrolled in a local technical college, has met Obama twice: when he was 5-years-old and in 2006 when the senator visited Nairobi.

"It was very brief, we spoke for just a few minutes," George recalled of the 2006 encounter. "It was like meeting a complete stranger."

In his autobiography, Obama described George as a "beautiful boy with a rounded head."

You know what? Know one knows what He is, except Himself and His wife. He told George Stephanopolis that He was a Muslim and He went to Rev Wright's Black theology "Christian" church. Either way He has never been vetted so personally by the mainstream media.
If He was, then the movie 2016 would not have been necessary.

The blabbermouths at the DNC are ignoring the fact that b. h. obama was mentored for years by the communist/terrorist bill ayers. That would be like ignoring b. h. obama being mentored by criminals like sandusky, loughner and holmes combined.
The infamous bill ayers advocated killing parents, exterminating 25,000,000 Americans, planted bombs, designed a bomb that blew his girlfriend and two comrades to bits and planned the overthrow of the US Government, Capitalism, etc.
Obviously obama’s mentor bill ayers trumps all the small potato criminals the self-serving closet marxists on this forum jump up and pretend to disdain.
Yes indeed it goes waaaaaaaaaay beyond b. h. obama saying ayers is just a guy in the neighborhood or the ignorant excuse obama was 8 years old or we've talked about it or by using the lame word “whatever“ when the name bill ayers is mentioned. But let Mitt Romney not release 20 years of tax returns or say something in London about the Olympics and obama’s useful idiots become unglued…despicable.

Stop whining to the government for a job. Get off your lazy ass and apply for one. The 1% job creators are hiring with their 12 years of tax savings.

Want to improve the economy? Go out and spend. Or are you asking the government to do that too?

The DNC didnt' even mention GOD at all in its Platform for the very first time in Party History.

We will see if the Progressive version of the Party as spiritually bankrupt Godless Heathens represents most American Democrats.

That's not the point. The point is that back in the spring Democrats were apoplectic that Mitt's fellow Republicans were questioning his faith. These same apoplectic Democrats are doubling down now on him now without nary the smallest interest in our president's religious past.

I want it to proceed with the "American Dream" of equality for all. In other words, balanced instead of the right wing nuttery.

It's the Economy, JOBS, DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN ENERGY, HIGH Cost of GAS, HIGH Cost of FOOD, Devaluation of our HOMES.

It's NOT Romney's religion!

It's too distract from what Americans care about the most.

Obama's 20 year membership in Reverend Wright's 'church' has the Reverend SCREAMING at the top of his lungs QUOTE: "GOD DAMN, AMERICA"

And that is EXACTLY what Obama has done.
