    Does he think the O will score points with this attack on a candidate's religion?

    Was this attack approved by the O?

    Why would he think it would work and with which group of voters?

    Does he think, because he's also a Mormon, his words will carry more weight?

    Is this just another "Mitt paid no taxes" attack?

    How quickly will we hear the demands for an apology and will either Reid or the O do so?

    Will this be just another 2-day news cycle that will rapidly disappear?

    Just another wild stab in the dark to try distracting the voter from all the Obama bad news?

    Reid won't run again. I doubt he cares how ugly he looks

    Reid didn't attack Romney's religion. He attacked Romney's impact on the public perception of their (shared) faith. Why would the President apologize for what Reid said? Reid's words are his own.

    In Neo-Loonville Obama simultaneously does nothing, campaigns 24/7 and directly controls every single situation that they view as an outrage.

    When did Reid stop taking money from the Mafia?

    You can parse it any way you wish.

    The general perception is that religion used as a negative, no matter how it's brought into the picture, is off limits with the general voting public - no matter which side of the fence you're parked on

    Really? You should tell that all the people on your side who were pimping in 2008, and are still pimping, Rev. Wright.
