Indeed.

But actually saying outright that Romney is worse because Obama is upfront?

Yikes! This one's not too bright! :)

Obama has been “upfront”, look at his record, it’s all against God.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume you were asleep from 2007 until the election in 2008, and didn't hear a word Obama said about his "faith" to, like say, Rick Warren, or the American people in general.......

Upfront?? Yikes.

btw, Obama didn't get the votes of 80% of Christian young people because he was "upfront" about being "against God."

He got their votes because he told hideous lies repeatedly, and they were too stupid or stubborn to realize that he wasn't being "upfront" about anything.

THIS, you should know.

BHO is upfront.

What???????????

He is a pathological liar who claimed to be a Christian to get elected and is in reality an atheist or a Muslim, and that’s preferable??

I agree that we need a miracle, but denying Obama’s dangerous pathology is not helpful in this discussion.

The only time he’s been “upfront” is today when he said he was for homosexual marriage.

Of course, the fact that he lied through his teeth about it to get elected doesn’t help your argument, does it?

~ ~ ~

I didn’t deny who BHO is... I am the one who said the
word “upfront.” You’re using one example of him lying.

The record is long and disgusting, we know where Obama stands by his actions these last four years and in Congress and in the Illinois.

Obama only PRETENDED to be deciding, to win votes but it’s already on record, he has stated years ago he is for “homosexual marriage.”

Show me where Romney is for life and totally against the
sodomite agenda? Romney is the one “PRETENDING.”

A little story:

I knew a really dedicated tree hugger back in the 80’s and 90’s.

She was an Al Gore supporter but over a period of months I pursuaded her to vote for Ralph Nader in 2000.

She caught on after Bush won and was so mad at me she never spoke to me again.

I think she’s still living in a T-Pee up in Oregon. LOL

Believe the Truth. It is a mortal sin on your soul to vote for a pro-abort. You cooperate with their evil.

Romneycare is evil, it is pro-abortion.

Okay, another lie, doesn’t matter there is OBama’s record, his actions. We know.

You do not say anything, defend Romney’s crazy sect and his actions in Massachusetts? Today, he’s telling everyone he is for life with no proof.

Again, Mitt furthered the sodomite agenda in Massachusetts,
which is immoral, it’s a grave sin.

Defend Romney, your candidate.

Santorum sat down with Romney for several hours and came out saying that he is convinced that Romney is solidly pro-life. Has he been decieved too?

On Romney's campaign site, in the section on Abortion reads as follows:

Mitt Romney is pro-life. He believes it speaks well of the country that almost all Americans recognize that abortion is a problem. And in the quiet of conscience, people of both political parties know that more than a million abortions a year cannot be squared with the good heart of America.

Mitt believes that life begins at conception and wishes that the laws of our nation reflected that view. But while the nation remains so divided, he believes that the right next step is for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade – a case of blatant judicial activism that took a decision that should be left to the people and placed it in the hands of unelected judges. With Roe overturned, states will be empowered through the democratic process to determine their own abortion laws and not have them dictated by judicial mandate.

Mitt supports the Hyde Amendment, which broadly bars the use of federal funds for abortions. As president, he will end federal funding for abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood. He will protect the right of health care workers to follow their conscience in their work. And he will nominate judges who know the difference between personal opinion and the law.

Because the good heart of America knows no boundaries, a commitment to protecting life should not stop at the water’s edge. Taking innocent life is always wrong and always tragic, wherever it happens. The compassionate instincts of this country should not be silent in the face of injustices like China’s One-Child policy. No one will ever hear a President Romney or his vice president tell the Chinese government that "I fully understand" and won’t “second guess” compulsory sterilization and forced abortion.

Americans have a moral duty to uphold the sanctity of life and protect the weakest, most vulnerable and most innocent among us. As president, Mitt will ensure that American laws reflect America’s values of preserving life at home and abroad.
Doesn't sound pro-abortion in the least to me.

Perhaps the miracle you pray for has already happened. This is what he is basing his campaign and election on.

Not so far. But the screeching and the sanctimony on the thread is so overwhelming, we might as well be in the middle of a meeting of enviro-whackos after a tree got cut down.

Exactly, a person can say anything, it’s what they do.

Jeff, I have asked twice and you ignore. Give a reply to
each one. If Mormonism is Trinitarian as Christians believe, how is the below true? Mormon belief about Our Lord’s mother, explain. A prophet or a false prophet do not sit with God deciding anything.
_____________

Yes mormonism teaches that the lds jesus was created, not eternal.

That the lds jesus was conceived by sexual intercourse with Mary and the lds god.

Yes mommonism teaches that the lds god was once a man who earned his godhood status.

Yes mormonism teaches that without Joseph Smith there would be no lds salvation, that he will sit with the lds jesus and decide who gets in to one of their celestial levels of lds glory

and

The Third person of the Blessed Trinity are the thoughts between the Father and the “son.”

This is a conservative forum.

It behooves you to defend Obama's lies here........not to say they 'don't matter.'

For a newbie troll, you're not trying very hard to hide who you are.

Even so, I never thought in all my long life that I'd have to defend against pro-Obama forces among people who claim conservatism.

btw, Romney is the only viable candidate opposing a Marxist pathological, hate-filled, evil, anti-American, pro-terrorist traitor.

Rick Santorum was "my" candidate after Herman Cain dropped out.

I'm once again going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you are just ignorant, as you are about Obama's being 'upfront' and therefore superior to Romney, and let this one slip by.

Since you're on a conservative forum, it's incumbant upon YOU to defend your pro-Marxist statements in Obama's defense.

I'll be waiting with baited breath to see you pretzel out of your double whammy that Obama is 'upfront' and that his lies, are no big deal, and don't matter....

So answer this direct question, newbie troll......how is it that you have come to believe that the blatant and repeated lies of the President of the United States are not a concern for a 'conservative' like yourself?

No diversions now. Direct answers only, please.

Romney is against sodomy. No way.

Here’s Mitt’s record:

You'll be interested in knowing that on Hannity just now there was a debate between Michelle Malkin (conservative, in case you didn't know), and Juan Williams (liberal, in case you didn't know), about whether or not Obama was "upfront" about his support of homosexual marriage.

And you'll be happy to know that Juan Williams and you are on the same side, and Malkin, Hannity and I are on the other side.

Congrats!

I also understand that the alternative in this election is a hardcore Marxist atheist with Muslim leanings who hates the country and all it stands for, and who possesses an unprecedented arrogance and deep seeded animosity toward morality and the Christian faith, including the 1st amendment right to exercise that faith.

That's the trump card, spiritually speaking, for me.

OK...

So we disagree. I'll take the Mormon over the Communist, atheist, America-hating, Christian-hating, Constitution-hating, religious freedom-stealing creepy punk now in the WH.

You'll never convince me to willingly allow Obama to continue his raping and pillaging (no hyperbolic metaphor this time :), and not fight with every ounce of strength I have to save America from it.

I'd vote for Marie Osmond before I'd allow Obama to win again.

Sorry. I know you're convinced that Romney is worse than Obama, but no amount of histrionics nor spamming will change this conservative, patriotic mind.

Save your energy for those who don't have a problem with Communism.
