Governor Says Polygamist Past May Hamper Romney Presidential Bid
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 21 April 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 04/22/2012 12:22:08 PM PDT by John Semmens

Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer (D) says that the fact that Mitt Romney’s father was the son of a polygamist may cause voters to question his suitability to be president.

“It’s my impression that polygamy might not be too popular with women voters,” Schweitzer mused. “Do they really want to put a man who’s only two generations removed from that abhorrent practice in the White House?”

Schweitzer dismissed the fact that President Barack Obama, Jr’s namesake—Barack Obama, Sr.—was also the son of a polygamist, calling it “irrelevant.” “Look, Obama’s father isn’t known for certain,” Schweitzer argued. “No one’s seen a genuine birth certificate. So, there’s no proof that the Obama from Kenya, after whom he’s 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.”

It is Mitt Romney’s own past, present, and gravely threatening future, that is very, very alarming.

Hey John......I go back and read the by lines now.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

. “Do they really want to put a man who’s only two generations removed from that abhorrent practice in the White House?”

Indeed. If we were to follow the cultural example of the Klingon Empire, then such shame upon a family would last three generations.

Barack Obama, Sr himself was likely a bigamist as he had a legal wife in Kenya when he presumably married Stanley Anne Dunham.

However, I thought Schweitzer's comment... "Look, Obama’s father isn’t known for certain,” ... “No one’s seen a genuine birth certificate..." to be very interesting. Schweitzer better call the White House to get the "official" story.
