In the matter of JR calling a truce and giving grudging support to Romney, I believe that he is right. I can’t stand Romney, but he considers himself a Republican and if we can keep a Republican held House and displace enough senators to get a Republican Senstae then we might also have a Republican POTUS to bless any GOP passed legislation.
As for various religions being unwelcome, I can certainly condemn Islam as a hate sect. As for the others, none of them seem to want me and any non-believers in their faith dead.
My wife is Buddhist; a few weeks back I went to the Easter Services at the Buddhist Temple with her. Surprised? I’m not a Buddhist, but I have come to respect the Buddhists quite a bit.
Six years ago, a local Catholic church burned down and their congregation had no place to worship. They asked most of the other churches in the area if they could use their churches for a two hours each Sunday to keep their flock together and conduct services while they raised money to rebuild their church. Every one of the other churches and synagogs in the area turned them down. The Buddhists weren’t even asked, but offered their temple for Sunday mornings for over a year while a new church was built. The Buddhists shifted their own services to the afternoons.
IMHO, Islam isn’t a religion but more of a political asperation. Just like the KKK being a religious group, it was more political than religious.
While it's true that JR has called a truce, I believe you mischaracterize his intent and clearly written words by the second half of your comment, which I bolded above. I wouldn't presume to speak for JR about this, but below is his most recent comment regarding Romney. His comment is 100% consistent with everything I've ever seen JR write about Romney, and it would be hard to characterize it as any kind of support, grudging or otherwise.

Look, there is no doubt whatsoever about Romney being a liberal progressive. Our pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty principles mean absolutely nothing to him. Theyre just talking points that he can give lip service to one way or the other. And he has. Hes been on all sides on all issues and back and forth on most. And he lies. A lot. Ive posted at least 10,000 times over the last seven or eight years that I would never vote for this progressive bastard so dont be shocked. Rove screwed the pooch not me.
