Skip to comments.Montana's Governor Schweitzer(D): "Romney’s father from ‘polygamy commune’ in Mexico"
Posted on 04/21/2012 4:44:33 PM PDT by tuckrdout
.Gov. Brian Schweitzer, talking Friday to a national news website, said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney might shy from talking about his familys Mexican roots because they came from a polygamy commune in Mexico.
Schweitzer made the remark in an interview with The Daily Beast, a news and opinion website, after being asked whether Montana might be a swing state during this years 2012 election.
According to The Daily Beast, Schweitzer said Montana likely would vote for Romney, but that Romney, a Mormon, might have trouble nationally because his father, George Romney, was born on a polygamy commune in Mexico.
Schweitzer, a Democrat, said later that he wasnt misquoted, and that his comments had nothing to do with Romneys faith or his church, which does not condone polygamy.
Schweitzer said he was describing the dilemma facing Romney, who is in trouble with Hispanic voters because he took an ultra-right-wing position on immigration during the (Republican) primary.

THERE IS ONLY ONE GROUP COMMITTED TO HELPING OBAMA.
and that would be Team Romney. et tu?
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
LOL, because that is relevant?
None of Mitt’s line has ever served, I have never known such a family have you?
Note that the the US Senate is already under Mormon control
See post 51, those darn leftist commies and America haters.
Is that supposed to be cute? Funny? It is juvenile, I’ll give you that.
Sigh. Sometimes I wonder why I keep coming here.
The nomination is over. The enemy is Obama and his ilk.
Give ‘em hell, Sergeant!!
WHAT BRANCH OF THE MILITARY DID YOU SERVE IN?
I agree with you, CNN.
I see no one refuting you.
I get the impression by many that Romney and 0bama are basically equal.

One thing Mormons, are without question among the very best at is:
Don’t mess with Mormons, about Genealogy.
Just don’t go there.
At least they know who Romney’s grandfather was.
In other words nothing, by the way the Jean Romney 14 Dec 1941 1 Jan 2004 that you used has been used before by a Romneybot to prove that the Romney line never serving wrong, here is that post from 2007.
Born on St. Croix, Romney joined the U.S. Army one year after graduating from then-Christiansted High School. Including his active Army and National Guard service, his career spanned 29 years.
He received many Army decorations and badges, including Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and National Defense Service Medal, among other awards.
Speaking at the 2000 ceremony which handed over the reins to the new Adj. Gen. Cleave A. McBean, Romney said, My ascending to the position of adjutant general was perhaps the highlight of my career. But it did not come without hard work and dedication, qualities that were instilled in me when I joined the Army one year after graduating from high school.
A shining example of self-discipline, dedication and perseverance, Major General Romney personified the value of continuing education, said a release from Lt. Gov. Vargrave Richards. He was a true leader.
In addition to an impressive career, said the release, his dedication to the youth of the Virgin Islands was highly admirable and an inspiration.
Arrangements are by the James Memorial Funeral Home.

We know that no Romney man in Romney’s line has ever served the United States in uniform, that is roughly a perfect 180 year history, even the draft couldn’t snag them.
We have been posing that statement based on our research here at FR for at least 5 years, and it has never been shown wrong.
Why haven’t YOU ever served our country?
Oh look! A bible thumping, holy roller with a disdain for Mormans. If you want to throw down, then at least make a point. Sycophant's hiding behind mr. robinson's skirts are just irritating.
Smear a man because of something his great-grandfather, Miles Romney, did in 1885. That’s the ticket!
As a side note, how did Willard’s father George, born in Mexico, think he could run for President in 1968?
And even if they were, so what? Grandpa isnt on the ballot
And polygamy was banned by the Mormon Church, way back in the latter part of the nineteenth century.
Any reference to polygamous practices by Mitt Romney's (remote) ancestors is really a very low blow, indeed...
First cousin: Lt. Col. Miles Conrad Romney (1913-1999), US ARMY WORLD WAR II, KOREA, VIETNAM
I don’t know what that has to do with talking about a candidate family’s 180 year perfect record of avoiding military service, but would it help if I were an Army vet under Nixon, and a National Guard vet under Reagan, and if in my household all the males served?
Both my brothers were vets, and my step brother was a vet and my dad, and then my stepfather, all of us (war time) volunteers, even my WWII dad who enlisted in 1939?
Of course that kind of thing goes back generations in my family, and my son is an Army vet also. We aren’t like the Romney’s.
