A reflection of this sense of ownership was evident in his take on last Saturdays South Carolina primary, which Gingrich won.
We havent had time to do a real analysis of the Romney race in South Carolina, but once we break that down, there was some element of anti-Mormonism in that vote, McCain asserted. Im not saying all of it, but there were elements there. There was nothing that Mitt Romney could have done.
Could that bias, if it exists, extend beyond the Palmetto State to others in the South if the primary drags on? Im not sure [but] I dont think so, McCain said, pointing to Georgia as one place he doesnt believe would hold Romneys religion against him.
McCain cited the possible anti-Mormonism in response to a query about the growing Tea Party support Gingrich has begun to draw, particularly in Florida.
The Arizona senator doesnt believe that support will be lasting because Gingrichs record doesnt track with issues dear to the movement, he said.

When is that old bastard going to dry up and blow away?
McCain is beyond delusional, friend; he is an idiot-maximus. =.=
The reasoning of a man entering his second childhood or becoming a leftist. If Mormonism cannot stand the heat of an inquiry then it is a false belief. Christ has face 2000 years of doubt and still stands. Yes many cults have sprung up in his name, but they all have failed and Christ still stands.
He has been hanging out on Free Republic where the Mormonophobes hang out in droves.
Substitute “racism” for “anti-Mormon” and you have a typical Dem defense of Obama.
Remind me why we should support McCain and Romney..,the GOP useless idiots.
Hey John, perhaps anti-McCainism played a bigger part in Mitt’s loss.
Sounds like the Republican Establishment's version of "The Race Card", doesn't it?
I have seen posts here stating that the poster will never vote for a Mormon.

Same folks probably would disqualify a Scientologist from the presidency, too.
That’s right McPain...label all of us, rather than realize reality.
So according to McCain
Mitt is A LIAR and BACKSTABBER because he's a mormon.
“I have seen posts here stating that the poster will never vote for a Mormon.”
Let’s think about that for a moment, while keeping in mind that Romney’s liberalism and corruption are enough to disqualify him. Say a candidate comes along who is Shinto, or a Hindu. A Christian would be reluctant to elect a person who believes false doctrine to lead this nation. Well, Mormonism is false doctrine. It’s not bigotry or hate to recognize that fact.
“The Arizona senator doesnt believe that support will be lasting because Gingrichs record doesnt track with issues dear to the movement, he said.”
And how the hell would HE know what’s “dear” to the movement?
Oh, spare me your religious hatred, OK?
I don’t support Mitt because I’m anti-Romneycare.
All this is - is the liberal version of race card. If Americans would vote for someone with the name Barrack Hussein Obama seven years after 9/11 - you really think mormonism is an issue?
The reason you won’t vote for ‘x’ is because of ‘x’. That’s manipulation through intimidation and if anyone knows anything that tactic is from the pit.
Juan, shove it!
