    And instead it backfired as it turned out that Obama have had family members having several wives.

    Schweitzer targets Romney family "polygamy" past; Romney fires back | KRTV.com | Great Falls, Montana

    Either way, why is Romney's family relevant to the election..........I hope people won't attack Obama because of what his relatives did or didn't do. At least try to make it fair.

    Obama's family is the last thing he wants us to focus on.

    Obama's father was just like my nephew's father. He came over from Somalia to the US in the 70s and married my wife's sister. They had a kid then he jetted and left them in the lerch. We still don't know how many other women he married and had children with. My nephew has met some of his half-brothers and sisters and he can't keep track of them.

    "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.'


    LOL


    This is simply precious!



    And now bookmarked.

    I was hoping that both sides will agree that it is not fair to blame the current generation for things that happened in the past. It is not fair to blame Obama for what his family did nor is it fair to blame Romney for what his family did.:)

    Well, as long as the left stays away from the subject so will we.

    If they want to drudge it up.....which they have and will.....you can't fault us for firing back.

    AGREED! Romney has not practiced polygamy, and what his great grandparents did is of no relevance.

    Now that we know that the Obama's have a history of practicing polygamy, the Left's coming attack on Mormonism will be greatly blunted.

    So what if they were polygamists ?

    What about ?????

    The left is for gay marriage....marry who you want. Nobody else's business.

    What I want to marry three women and they want to marry me ? Why can't I ?

    What if I want to marry someone who is 16 and she wants to marry me.

    The left never has a good answer for any of this (and to be clear...I am not interested in marrying a sixteen year old).

    But if my neighbor wants to marry his adult daughter....why can't he ? (I know it sounds gross....but just put the argument out there for the sake of the argument....don't think to hard about it).

    Obama has always been responsible for the goings on of people he never met. Ask any Republican.

    Ask any Democrat and they will tell you that GWB is responsible for what his Grandfather did, or what Cheney did, or what Halliburton did, or what Katrina did, or what the guards at Abu Grab did, Enron did, or what any Republican did in a Minnesota bathroom......
