Skip to comments.Does Romney have a 14-Million-Man Army ready for General Election? (Vanity)

Another FReeper, in another posted comment, just this week, stated that his Mormon neighbor was obsessed with getting a Mormon, Mitt Romney, elected President of the United States. That statement has "stuck in my craw" ever since I read it; which begs to question:
If Mitt Romney is the GOP Nominee for POTUS, will the 14 million Mormons in the U.S. mobilize for him during the General Election? Hmmmmm....... Just wondering. The Mormon Church not only has a lot of "foot soldiers", but they know how to "mobilize". They've done it for decades.
Do not underestimate RINO-Rom in the GE. He's hungry. He's been running for the White House for 6 years. He, and the LDS Church have mega bucks. The Marriott Hotel Chain, for example, is a Mormon corporation; just to name one. And, the Primary season proved he will stoop to anything to win. Unlike McCain, he just might be capable of getting as "down and dirty" as the DemocRATS. And, I must say, it's kinda refreshing to see a Pubbie who will not bend over for the street-wise Dems like most Republicans do. Maybe there are some 'nads inside the "Magic Underwear".
I prophesy that this Whitewashed Jackass is going to be eaten by coyotes and ejected over a cliff.
I try to be nice to them. They are polite. Jehovah’s Witnesses too. They are trying to save your soul. They may be wrong but their intent is good.

I’m not talking about them “evangelizing”. I’m talking about them campaigning.
How the LDS authority or the Mormons, as individuals, can support/vote for Romnutz is beyond me.
Mormons are supposed to believe the Constitution was Divinely inspired. Yet the Progs and Saul Alinsky collectivists want to allow government even further into our lives and assets.
If they do support the Constitution, then Romnutz being a self proclaimed “Progressive” should result in their not supporting him
Betcha they do support him, anyway. Then teh claims and counter-claims will begin.
Suggestion: Buy lots of popcorn.
Ammo and food are also suggested.
They will likely vote for him for the same reason that 98% of Blacks voted for Obama in 2008, but I suspect his socially liberal positions will prevent widespread institutional mobilization.
I will however delight in Mr. Romney's discomfort trying to 'splain the "racism" in his theology.. brings a little balance to his earlier bragging that his father George protested Barry Goldwater's "racism" in 1964.
George Romney was and Mitt is an establishment Republican of the Rockefeller-Scranton sort. The very ones who said that Barry Goldwater had to be destroyed as a member of the human race. Those dudes play for keeps as you have witnessed Mitt do.
But at least they are a little more apt to support the interest of the United States of American than is Obama.
I must say you have the right screen name for yourself.
Given the choice between a Socialist Democrat and a Liberal RINO Republican, I’m afraid Americans will go for the real thing ... the Socialist Democrat.
If he attacks Obama with as much vigor as he attacked his conservative primary opponents, he may have a shot at winning. This remains to be seen.
They would have to do so unofficially, “off the record”, so to speak.
Otherwise they would lose their tax exempt status.
You haven’t been following the caucus threads have you. They are already motivated.
Read the first two chapters of Trish Erickson’s book CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS? available free on Amazon, and you will understand why I’m just sick at what is happening in the primary.
Heaven help us.
“I must say you have the right screen name for yourself.”
Yeah, I like it. I don’t derive my theology or world view from Hallmark cards.
Well, I realized this year during the Primary season, after observing Mitt Romney, that apparently, all Mormon’s are not truthful and honorable. Mitt Romney changed my opinion of Mormons. I thought they were all good, moral, honest people. But, apparently not.
A friend of mine is Mormon, they prefer LDS though. Seems a lot of the LDS voted for Obama, kind of wondering if Romney gets the win what that will do.
You might want to consider getting some intense therapy for your anger disorder. You’re scary.
Ya know it was only a matter of time until the republicans demanded their party vote for another liberal.
No. There may be 14 mil mormons worldwide.
No. There may be 6 mil in the US, with only 40% over 18.
No. Only 94% of mormons are supporting Romney so he might have 2.2 mil mormons helping out.
LDS has money and an army.
Seeing them going against the O-bots will be interesting.
