Skip to comments.Mitt Romney: Ronald Reagan in Sacred Underwear?

Bleeding-heart types looking for a "minority cause for which to advocate in the 2008 presidential elections are torn between the candidacies of a woman, two African- Americans, a Hispanic and a former mayor of Cleveland who is more of a communist than Vladimir Putin.
Tough choices, those, and all of them Democrats.
In the interest of fairness, however, the name of Mitt Romney should be added to the shopping list of those searching for an oppressed minority to support.
As a practicing member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons), Romney is aligned with one of the most persecuted and oppressed minorities in history. Even in these enlightened times, millions of Americans say they would not vote for the charismatic ex-governor of Massachusetts under any circumstances.
And, in an amazing demonstration of religious bigotry, a New Hampshire liberal rag, the Concord Monitor, used its Sunday editorial pages to tell readers why they should not vote for Mitt Romney.
This "anti-endorsement" is unprecedented, unfair, un-American and unwise.
Editors at the Concord Monitor even went so far as to warn readers that Romney must be stopped ". . . because he lacks the core philosophical beliefs to be a trustworthy president."
That particular bit of editorial malfeasance is a thinly-veiled assault on Romney's Mormon faith, pure and simple.
Fact of the matter is that Mitt Romney is the most conservative candidate running for the White House. He is also the most experienced and qualified, a fact attested to by his service as the governor of liberal-infested Massachusetts, and by his enormously successful personal finances.
Mitt Romney knows how to work with people from diverse political backgrounds, how to overcome discrimination and adversity, and he knows how to run a large organization. No other candidate comes close to matching his qualifications for taking over the Oval Office on Ja
Reagan would have never maneuvered people into a position of having to pay a $50 to $100 PER MONTH fine just because they don’t want to sign up for a Stalinist health insurance plan.
Romneys politically dead.
“Fact of the matter is that Mitt Romney is the most conservative candidate running for the White House. “
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Yeah right.
LOL ! Exactly .
Thanks! Merry Christmas a great New Year! :-)
Just another sit back and watch humble go ping.
I really hope that's a pen name.
Mary Christmas and a Happy New Year to you also!
How dare you equate that flip-flopping lying phony with Reagan ...

And from NumbersUSA as of December 21:
“Now that Rep. Tom Tancredo has dropped out of the race, only two candidates (THOMPSON & HUNTER) are left who have vigorous and thorough enough opposition to amnesty to warrant an EXCELLENT rating.”
GO FRED! :)
Meantime the Concord Monitor is writing puff pieces for Huckabee, puff pieces so flattering he puts them on his website.
Gimme a break! In 1995 I was hired by a Mormon-owned company, with Mormon co-workers still. Before that, I lived in Mormon-run Michigan. Until recently my state rep was a Mormon (we hope to elect him to a new office). I have nothing against Mormons in public office, and have fond if vague memories of his father.
But Mitt Romney is no Ronald Reagan. His actions, and inactions, as governor disqualify him for the presidency IMHO -- unless the Dem candidate turns out to be the worst of the two evils.
