Posted on 01/11/2012 11:55:36 AM PST by americanophile
On MSNBC just now, South Carolina Democratic chair Dick Harpootlian painted Republican voters there as potentially refusing to vote for a Mormon, while trying to make it so. From memory: It does not bother me that he may believe the Garden of Eden is in Missouri, but it may bother them.
This is an ugly card and I hope...

Judging by what’s been here on FR for the last year or so, I’d say being a Mormon is at least 50% of the reason why freepers won’t vote for him. After all, a cultist just cannot be a true conservative.
Mittens is unelectable. We all better pray he’s not the nominee.
I don’t like Romney because he’s a liberal, period.
I have no idea about that but Romney is not really a modern Republican.
THE MOVIE IS RELEASED:
People on both sides of the aisle hate Mormons.
I dont care one way or the other, but no one should be surprised that the thing that people have been saying for 4 years would come at him IS ACTUALLY COMING AT HIM!
This is an ugly card and I hope...Am I supposed to support the weirdo because Democrats attack him on grounds of his faith? Or because Democrats imply that GOPers are bigots? I could not possibly care less. I oppose Willard Mitt Romney because of RomneyCare with its new rules, its new taxes, its assumptions about using state power to pursue progressive goals, its exchanges, and its mandates, a program that is functionally identical to ObamaCare. I will never support Romney; I will never vote for Romney. I will actively oppose him whether in the primaries or the general election.
“Dem Drives Anti-Mormon Card”
How does one drive a card?
If a decades-old DUI charge was enough to make evangelical voters refuse to go vote for G.W. Bush, Romney’s faith will certainly cause the same effect. And, the libs have been counting on it.
KJL is a leading Mittbott. She is already setting up the excuses if Mitt doesn't do well in SC.
There appear to be too many who let Rush Limpbough do their thinking, for this revealing piece to get the airing it deserves.
It will definitely be an issue.
Begins hell ?
The anti Mormon bigots are in full hue and cry on Free Republic and have been for months.
Free Republic is probably where he came to learn about the anti Mormon bigotry.
Pfffttt.... so it begins indeed. We’re so-so worried about what Democrats will say. Oh my, we better run and hide, the big bad Democrats will do this, then they’ll do that, oh no, we’re so screwed...
What kind of gutless foxhole is this?
I really couldn’t care less about the Mormonism thing. I like Glenn Beck, dislike Mitt Romney, and despise Harry Roid. I like John Huntsman Sr and Dislike John Huntsman Jr.
No, I just thought it was an interesting benchmark. If Romney is the nominee he will be mercilessly hammered for being a 'weirdo' on his faith by the diversity-loving Democrats. This is the firt open shot that I've seen.
A “weirdo”, huh? Newbies using the Axelrod lexicon are not allowed an opinion. Back to DU, loser.
