    Has been "vetted". Been in politics for a long time. No suprises in his personal life. Boy scout clean.

    Unless theeconomy does a 180.

    No president has been re-eleced with such a crappy economy and lousy job per rating.......................

    But there's one little problem.

    Nobody actually likes the guy.

    Elections are won by the guy people find likable.

    If you nominate Romney over the objections of the 75% of Republicans who are conservatives, evangelicals and Tea partiers, you will have a third party movement that will split the anti-Obama vote and Obama gets a second term. Easy.

    Seriously, I've been talking to Romney supporters since 2008. No one acutally talks about his principles, his charisma or his great record as a governor.

    Discounting the ones who are LDS Cultists, the usual arguments for him are that he's "moderate" (keeping in mind that when the GOP nominates moderates, they lose) he's a successful businesman (except that he laid thousands of people off in his business ventures, which is like getting caught kicking a puppy in this economy) and he's electable (Forgetting the fact that he's lost 80% of the elections he's ever stood in.)

    Oh, yeah, and the one you make, that he's been "vetted" because he's run before. Right. So was McCain. So was Dole. See how well those worked out? The 'It's his turn" strategy hasn't worked for the GOP since 1988. The GOP lost four out of the last five popular votes for President with that kind of thinking.

    His "Muslim" faith? Whooooops. Well, I can understand your confusion. they are both evil religions started by con men who wanted to screw little girls.

    Guy, I'm as right wing as they come. And I consider Mormonism a cult.

    Yeah, you did.

    But it's spelled "Mormon" not "Morman". They prefer to call themselves "Latter Day Saints", which is true Hubris. Which tells me you probably don't know much about it.

    And here's the thing. If you read more about Mormonism and the absolutely crazy shit they believe, you would see why a lot of not only liberals, but conservatives are concerned about the LDS cult and it's lust for power.

    Now, here's the gag. The Mainstream Media isn't talking about this stuff now, but we will get to hear all about the crazy stuff after he gets the nomination.

    But he is older than Obama. And far less likable.

    Forgetting the batshit crazy religion, here's the thing. Obama can't run on his economy. It's been pretty awful. So he has to run against Wall Street. "We've done everything we can, but these greedy people on Wall Street who are posting record corporate profits and got bailouts you paid for aren't keeping up their end of the deal."

    And who does the GOP run? Mitt Romney, a guy who made a nine-figure fortune going into companies, pushing people out of good paying jobs, leaving investors with worthless paper, moving factories to China.

    It reinforces the image of the GOP as the party that watches "It's a Wonderful Life" and cheers for Mr. Potter.

    LOL. Silly ass, it ain't the libs calling his Morman faith a cult, it is Perry. You guys always try to blame the name calling within the GOP on the 'libs'. Sorry, nobodys buying your bullshit. You want to call each other names, man up and admit it is a family affair.

    So when All Sharpton said this...

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUMQw-hVlc0]Rev Sharpton On Romney's Religion - YouTube[/ame]

    that was Republican stuff? I mean, even I think Mormons actually believe in God.

    Fact is, While polls show that 18% of republicans won't vote for Mormons, 27% of Democrats won't vote for one, either. So hatred of Mormonism is more prevelant on the left.
