Skip to comments.Governor Says Polygamist Past May Hamper Romney Presidential Bid
Posted on 04/22/2012 12:22:08 PM PDT by John Semmens
Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer (D) says that the fact that Mitt Romneys father was the son of a polygamist may cause voters to question his suitability to be president.
Its my impression that polygamy might not be too popular with women voters, Schweitzer mused. Do they really want to put a man whos only two generations removed from that abhorrent practice in the White House?
Schweitzer dismissed the fact that President Barack Obama, Jrs namesakeBarack Obama, Sr.was also the son of a polygamist, calling it irrelevant. Look, Obamas father isnt known for certain, Schweitzer argued. No ones seen a genuine birth certificate. So, theres no proof that the Obama from Kenya, after whom hes named, is his actual father. And even if he is, he was the product of a much more primitive culture. So, it would be unfair to hold President Obama to the same standards we might apply to his opponents.

And Schweitzer believes a loser Marxist will fare better?
But you keep on trucking. It took a while for me to recognize the rhythm of your writings.
Again, it sounds like reality. I believe that most elected officials truly think we the voters are so stupid they could say 2+2=5 and we would believe them.
LOL! Good point John.
Do you have a link to Schweitzer’s quote about not being sure who is Obama’s father?
Where was Schweitzer and when did he say it?
It’s lame satire.
And our current President’s father had two wives as well, never divorced the first in Kenya before marrying Obama’s momma...but see I guess that is ok since he is a dem.
A dog in every pot!
My apologies, I tend to take things at face value.
When the constitution and rule of law are being shredded in front of our eyes, I look for any indication that someone is stepping up to the plate and telling it like it is..... and letting us know that we aren’t alone in our fight.
It wasn’t an obstacle for 0bama.
Uh! Ecuse me. Obama’s dad was a confirmed bigamist married to two women at the same time. That was not a problem. Let’s not have a double standard here!!!!
Indeed. If we were to follow the cultural example of the Klingon Empire, then such shame upon a family would last three generations.
Romney is a b_stard?Buahahahahaha! Whats that make Obama?
And Obama’s father was a........polygamist, but hail, that don’t hurt Obama none!
Obamas father had at least 3 wives in the West and another back in Africa.And he not even a Mormon! Buahahahahaha!
However, I thought Schweitzer's comment... "Look, Obamas father isnt known for certain, ... No ones seen a genuine birth certificate..." to be very interesting. Schweitzer better call the White House to get the "official" story.
