This is a great piece on Mitt and I would encourage everyone to get this out there so people can see it. Places like facebook,twitter and post in comments sections everywhere.

Your trap will not work.

Religion has nothing to do with our opposition to Romney.

Nice try.

Diana Rae's posts look lime Bosman's is that his wife?

Machtyn said...

Certainly, religion is not the source of your opposition. But with a members of the LDS church, their religion IS their way of life. We live Christian lives, lives of honor, honesty, humility and service to those in need. This is a generalism, but Mitt fits the general statement.

There are a large amount of people that have fallen for the lies of the Left, that the right wing pundits and talking heads have picked up and run with.

I am sure, RWN, that you do respect Romney's service and work ethic, his ability to get things done and turned around. You just have a problem with some of his policies and actions in MA.

RW, get over yourself.

I don't know guys. This talk about Mitt being a saint makes me uncomfortable. I know that this is meant to show the real side of him, but it's just not the way to go, IMO.

I hope we don't see the campaign trying this.

RW,

nothing to do with 'our' opposition?

Got a little bird in your pocket? Because most rational people are not still in the opposition stage. Just sayin.

Yeah, I thought the time for opposition had passed. A freudian slip no doubt.

Great piece. Romney strikes me as the quintessential reluctant politician--he's not a natural; it shows, but he rises to the occasion (in speeches, etc.) when he feels passionate about something. I can so relate to this. He's going to winm and he's going to be a great President.

Noelle said...

Opposition to Romney at this time is support for Obama.

I listened to this book on tape prior to the edition that included a section on Romney. It has nothing to do with religion per se, but it deals with how these successful LDS businessmen prioritize, how their LDS lifestyle helps them to succeed, how their missions prepared them for their careers. I'm looking forward to reading the new edition.

If someone is opposed to the candidacy of the nominee, that is within your rights. However to try and stir controversy as to the merits of his qualifications at this stage of the game serves only one purpose, helping the incumbent's bid for re-election. It is way past time to issue statements in opposition, instead it is time to unite behind a strong candidate with an excellent chance of victory.

Graham said...

RW's opposition isn't based on religion.

It's based on the fact that his chosen savior turned out to be false, and opted to not even show up to the party, only to have it later revealed that she was never qualified for the job to begin with.

Wait...okay, maybe it is religious.

Right Wingnut said...

Joel,

You know how ridiculous that sounds? You guys continue to throw grenades, but we're suppose to kiss your ass and unite? Wrong.

Publius Nemo said...

The questions that Mitt Romney asked America tonight are the important ones. Not only to unite the party and RW but to unite ALL Americans.

Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?

Romney presented a clear contrast to Obama's BIG government European vision. Anyone with a slight conservative slant will vote for Romney against Obama. Romney has no beef with anyone but Obama. If the so called "Romneybots" offend it is not on behalf of the candidate. Romney is anything but abrasive or insulting. He is still reaching out to Palin, Gingrich, Perry, and Santorum. Romney is generous and friendly with all of them. Cut the guy some slack. He's going to be working hard to reverse the last four years of disaster and then some.

There is a clear difference between someone who takes cameras and plates of cookies to haiti and native Alasakans, and someone who quietly serves his fellow man without fanfare. This race is not about Mitt Romnmey. It's about the AMERICAN people, and Romney will allow US to shine. The hard work is for everyone, and Romney will be there right along side us, with his sleeves rolled up. The white house will not be a reality show on steroids. We won't have tabloid 'scandles or children dancing in monkey suits on national TV. Dignity and decorum will return and hopefully stay in Washington. Romney is a master manager, and when it happens, he'll turn the spot light on the American people, not on himself.

To be fair, Ellie, I don't think Bristol's participation in Dancing With The Stars is at all a negative reflection on her mother, or on herself for that matter. A lot of people like that show, and Bristol represented herself well on it.

Diana Rae said...

No, Right Wingnut I am not BOSMAN's wife. My hubby probably would take exception to that.

I am also not Mormon. Though I have many Mormon friends now and throughout all of my life.

I posted this to because the video explains why Mitt hasn't bragged about his accomplishments, or the things he does for others. It is just 'what Mormons do' - kind selfless things without needed recognition for it.

"You guys continue to throw grenades, but we're suppose to kiss your ass and unite? Wrong."

That's the spirit RW! It's all about you vs. the Romney crowd. Who cares about the principles of the candidate or the future at stake. The Romney supporters are still unwilling to kiss your backside, so to hell with them!

You're a pathetic, bitter, little man RW. Take your ball and go home. Good riddance.

RW,

Grow up.

Right Wingnut said...

SmEllie, listen, bitch....not that I want to anyway, but if I wanted to copy your comment elsewhere, who's going to stop me?

Right Wingnut said...

Slick willy and Mass con,

Go fuck yourself!

Noelle said...

Could I request a censoring of the above comment?

Publius Nemo said...

Open forum is a wild deal. If the choice is between Obama and Romney, anyone with a conservative bone will have to make the obvious choice and vote Romney. Like Jeffress ('Mormonism is a cult' guy) said, he will vote for Romney and "hold his nose". While I think Jeffreess is totally bigoted and parochial in his assessment of Romney's faith the fact remains that he will vote for Romney over Obama. Let Obama do the unifying.

RW's reasons for not liking Romney are other than religion he says and I take him for his word. Even if his words are occasionaly crass and distasteful. We've had our disagreements here but he's excited about ousting Obama and that makes him like most people following the debate here.

That being said I think Mitt Romney is a great president in the making. I am enthusiastic about him as our nominee and I wasn't four years ago. Rock n' Roll Mitt!

Right Wingnut said...

Noelle,

Why don't you ever ask that Ellies's comments be censored. You Romney supporters are the biggest hypocrites. What a bunch of whining babies.

Noelle said...

Maybe you didn't notice, but I did respond to Ellie's comments. My request is to remove the profanity.

Right Wingnut said...

If someone else wants to censor me, fine. I'm not taking it down. Sorry.

I have had several business experiences with clients and colleagues of the mormon faith and have found that when the going gets tough, the mormons stick together. I was once told by a particularly indiscreet LDS engineer that won a bid, though his bid was not the lowest nor was his firm the most qualified, that "membership has its privileges". Among businesses in my highly mormon state of Arizona, it is generally accepted that if you want to do business with LDS this is generally what you have to put up with. I hear Mr. Benedict talk about Mitt Romney helping out "a lot of people who are not mormon...throughout his career". Who? Can we get a non-mormon that has worked closely with Mitt to stand up and say what a great guy he is an how he helps everyone out? This would go a long, long way in convincing me to vote for him. Thanks for listening.
