Any reference to polygamous practices by Mitt Romney's (remote) ancestors is really a very low blow, indeed...

Well, the reference from the original article by the Montana gov is hypocritical because of the bigamy by Obama's father.

(But of course, conservative FREEPERS like you never seem to be able to go on the threads where other posters are pointing that out -- and then labeling those posters as being guilty of some "low blow" for mentioning Obama's ancestry.)

IoW, I think Obama's and Romney's ancestry is up for fair comment. The hypocritical bunch in FREEPERland...and we have quite a few...point to some apparent "low blow" standard whenever Romney's religion or family is mentioned...but don't ever seem to point to the same standard as applying to Obama & his religious ties & family.

Frankly, I’m not interested in ancestry of either Romney or Obama further back than the household they grew up in and the extended family that formed their character.

If Romney’s great-grandfather was a polygamist, so what. Ancient history. He didn’t live in that setting. If Obama’s absent father was a polygamist, so what. He didn’t grow up in that household.

The point lost on some in this thread is serious — willfully charge ancestral sins upon the present, and you wholly empower the Libtard assertion that somehow white people today owe something to the Amish for slavery repealed 150 years ago (by a Republican!).
