Skip to comments.MSNBC's O'Donnell on Romney's "Mormon Problem": How Moronism Was "Invented"
Posted on 04/07/2012 2:48:46 PM PDT by NorthernCrunchyCon
And so begins the MSM turn on the Republican nominee. And as much as I hate to credit the MSM, and particularly O'Donnell, I cannot find anything in his rant that is inaccurate, other than the number of wives Joseph Smith claimed. O'Donnell says 48, but I believe the most consistent number put forward by historians is 27. On the other hand, Brigham Young claimed 56 wives, so O'Donnell is certainly within range.
Just terrific, we’re now going to have FR members (albeit new ones in this case) cheerleading MSDNC’s atttacks on the Republican nominee. What’s next? Links to Daily Kos with the latest anti-Mitt talking points?
Sorry but people are taking the anti-Willard stuff way too far now. It sucks he is going to be the nominee, but continuing to attack him is effectively helping the left and doing the Democrats job for them.
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Well NCC, Longbow seems to ask a damn good question. When Romney is the nominee, which is inevitable, is that what you're going to do? Will you go into league with the left in order to avoid having a (gasp) Mormon candidate? I do notice from a quick perusal that you seem to give Obama a pass and save all your venom for Romney. What's up with that?
I’ve said for months, since I read Trish Erickson’s CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS? that if conservatives didn’t start the discussion Axelrod would finish it.
No one wanted to talk about it....and now we’re stuck with the potential problem.
You can read the first two chapters of the book at review tab on Amazon for free.
I don’t recall O’Donnell being too upset about the fact that Harry Greid of NV, is a Morman.
Obama’s religious background(s) are:
1) An Indonesian madrassa where some reports had him registered as a muslim, then
2) A racist America-bashing preacher led “church”.
You (and the MSM) will of course be all over those two, right?
If Romney is our nominee (and it’s sure starting to look that way) how about we don’t attack our own guy.
Obama and Romney both LIE, both govern poorly,
both ruin Constitutions, both KNOW they are entitled,
and both are ineligible.
Oh Diogenesis...you cut up!
such a funny guy!
They did the same thing to JFK when he was running in 1960. They said he would take orders directly from the Vatican. And if a Jewish person ever ran for President, the sewer rats would be spreading the rumor that he would be under the thumb of those evil bankers, the Rothchilds. It’s all a bunch of crap.
“Well NCC, Longbow seems to ask a damn good question. When Romney is the nominee, which is inevitable, is that what you’re going to do?

I fought this battle before. Half my family is subject to Her Majesty, and I see how David Cameron has destroyed the once great party of Lady Thatcher.
Why would you use an MSNBC analyst to help you?
“Sorry but people are taking the anti-Willard stuff way too far now. It sucks he is going to be the nominee, but continuing to attack him is effectively helping the left and doing the Democrats job for them.”
Romney’s Mormonism is as insidious a danger to the American people as Obama’s lean towards Islam. Although the press isn’t doing this to protect America, they are doing, unwittingly, the American public a great service by exposing Morminism and thus Romney. I, for one, am glad to see it happen. At least some lasting good can come out of the mistake of allowing Romney to be the GOP candidate.
Apparently, you just haven’t beem listening to many folks on this forum. WE WILL NOT ALLOW A ROMNEY CANDIDANCY TO GO UNCHALLENGED EVEN IN A GENERAL ELECTION. It is NOT in the best long term interests of conservatism or the United States of America.
Obama is an obvious evil....he shows more of it each day with attacks on the Constitution. Romney will be just as evil, but in an insidious way. Supporting either is unacceptable. Thus, rebellion against both is necessary.
Maybe, just maybe, the powers that be in the RNC will get the message.
Be advised, that I for one, will not ever stop bashing Romney even IF he is the the GOP’s nominee. He is no better for America than Obama, and could possible be worse because the GOP members of Congress will feel compeled to follow the fools leading. While it would be a great relief to be rid of Obama....I know in my soul that Romney would be even worse....but it wouldn’t be as obvious and would be harder to correct.
So, get used to it. There are MANY of us that are extremely upset and we aren’t going to “chill” or go away. No insults leveled at us will stop us....it will just make us more determined to fight on, and fight harder. Romney has to go, just as Obama does.
Has the big guy said the site’s position is to oppose Romney in the general election?
I didn’t get that memo.
“They did the same thing to JFK when he was running in 1960. They said he would take orders directly from the Vatican.”
True, but JFK was a Catholic in name only, whereas Romney is a real full blown Mormon.
Like I keep telling folks, this isn’t going to get a pass. Obama is an OBVIOUS evil, Romney is JUST as evil, but in an insidious way. Both don’t belong sitting in the office of POTUS.
Because if you have been through one of these elections before, the MSM does not have to resort to lies to destroy a candidate among independents when truth is on its side.
Why was Santorum destroyed in his last senate race? Because he backed Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey.
Some people are their own people and don’t believe letting Barack Obama have four more years of making LIFETIME court appointments is in the best interest of conservatism either.
Did you go screaming to your mommy or your teacher when you didn’t like something you heard as a boy also?
The last position I read from Jim Thompson seemed open-ended about Romney in the general election.
Last I read the site is strongly, emphatically “NO ROMNEY”, but I don’t think I’ve seen any position as to where we go as far as the position of this site, if / when Romney against all that is good and right in this world, wins the nomination.
Obama will very likely, once no longer restrained by the need for re-election, tear the Constitution into tiny bits of paper, and may even seize power a la Hugo Chavez.
Some perspective please.
Romney, for all his faults, is nowhere near the risk to America, another Obama term would be.
“Some people are their own people and dont believe letting Barack Obama have four more years of making LIFETIME court appointments is in the best interest of conservatism either.”
Wrong. Romney will, at best, pick a David Souter. That doesn’t help anyone. He cannot be trusted in the office anymore than Obama. Plus, if he makes a bad appointment, the GOP members of the senate will feel compeled to endorse it. At least Obama’s appointments are obvious epic failures to will be resisted.
Also, you don’t get it friend. Insults, like “crying to momma”, won’t work. I just toss you on the same pile of trash as Obama and Romney. Both are unacceptable choices.
If you want to drink Romney’s Jim Jones Kool-aid...I can’t stop you.
