Skip to comments.McCain Sees Anti-Mormonism in Romney's S.C. Loss
Posted on 01/28/2012 8:15:18 AM PST by Windy City Conservative
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!
The one good thing about a Romney win would be that everryone in the US would have the pleasure of meeting the Mormon Protective Association (MPA).
People in AZ say "Never, we need him."
“When is that old bastard going to dry up and blow away?”
And take Bob (It’s My Turn) Dole with him. I am tired of the voters making life-long politicians out of guys who are “war heros.” Both of these men are shining examples of “Peter Principle” politicians.
I didn’t hear the establishment make that argument about Huntsman in NH or about Mitten’s losing in Iowa. Oh well, they are the betters of us so it must be true!!! /S
I wouldn’t care if Romney was secound in command to the Pope. Romneycare is the killer for me.
I will not vote for anyone who tries to shove Obamaromneycare down my throat.
Fear no mormon. Only mormonism, which can steal your soul.
I will celebrate and make positive posts on the Freerepublic when McCain is gone for good.
Where has McCain been as of late? Hiding under a rock?
McCain is blind and worthless!
Well let’s just say the voters have had enough of holding their noses to vote for the GOP RINOS.
I see anti-liberalism in Romney’s S.C. loss.
If Romney was a pro-HealthControl, pro-TARP, pro-abortion, anti-gun Baptist he would have lost SC.
If Romney was a pro-freedom, pro-prosperity, pro-life, pro-gun Mormon he would have won SC.
It IS that simple!
PS: If Senator McCain had campaigned as hard against Obama as he does against conservatives, he would be President McCain.
I have made posts here that I will never vote for a statist.
Thanks Juan, you just explained exactly why Romney is unelectable. Southerners will not turn out for him enough to cancel out the black vote and Zero will win the South without losing usual Rat strongholds.
John, by that logic, what sort of doofus could possibly lose to a drug smoking Mohammedan?
How could she possibly lose??
As one of the so called “anti-Mormons” on FR, I wouldn’t vote for Romney even if he were an Evangelical Christian. His record shows he is a liberal.
Wow. That's got to be the most amazingly ignorant post I've read in a long time. Good job! There must be some kind of kewpie doll for bigoted posts like that!
McCain is only hinting at the reality if the Mormon factor. It is, in a sense, the “X” factor: unknown because it has never been studied before, and most people when polled, refuse to admit to any religious or racial bias.
If the GOP-E goes ahead and nominates Romney, and the truth about the beliefs and goals of Mormonism become more widely known, many, many, people will say no.
You just claimed that anyone who doesn’t follow YOUR group is a kook, and YOU accuse ME of a liberal mindset ???
Hypocrisy much ?
Christians voting their conscience, should be praised by Republicans, McCain condemns it.
After you read below what Mormons spread around the world in hundreds of languages, and preach 24/7 on Lds.org Web site and in books, multi-media, curricula and missionary convos...can you blame them that a true-believing Mormon doesn't exactly "inspire" them to vote for him?
Mitt Romney, Dec, 2007, speaking @ the George Bush Presidential Library: "I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers I will be true to them and to my beliefs."
