Whoopi Attempts Gotcha On Ann Romney, Wrongly Says Mormonism Forbids Military Service
Real Clear politics ^ | 10/18/12 | Real Clear Politics

Posted on 10/19/2012 8:16:42 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: As first lady, if you get the job, it’s going to entail a lot of things, and one of those things is going to be talking to the mothers whose children are coming home in bags, you know, from wars. Now, I know -- I believe that your religion doesn’t allow you to go fight. ANN ROMNEY: No, that's not correct. We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in armed services.

The sad thing is viewers of this dopey show likely consider her to be a source of news.

Is she wearing grilles on her teeth? Sure looks like a bit of ghetto bling to me.

That seems to be all the rage among these fantastically wealthy black celebs - look as though you just crawled out of the ‘hood. (Although if you read their bios, a lot of them were actually never in the ‘hood to begin with and are the children of middle or upper middle class families.)

In any case, dumb, dumb, dumb.

A few of my classmates at West Point were mormon. I remember them specifically, because they were allowed to take a year off (to go on their missionary work), which was highly unusual...making their West Point odyssey last 5 years instead of 4.

None of them ever talked about not being able to fight...and I think I even discussed ‘just war’ with one of them.

The esteemed religious and ethics scholar, Whoopi (Caryn Elaine Johnson), is wrong.

Mormons can serve in the military. I knew one who was a real jerk, but if he had been a Baptist he would still have been a jerk.

There is a National Military Cemetery not far from here. Near the grave of My Father-in-law, which has a cross on the stone, there is a grave with a sandblasted image of Moroni tooting his horn on that stone.

I think Whoopi is a third grade drop out, isn't she?

Yet since she became somewhat of a "celebrity", she has been endowed with additional knowledge and wisdom that can only come from such a position and peasants like us can't understand or comprehend!

OUCH! Another slap-down in public for liberal lunacy.

I don't know why Whoopie tried such a cheap shot, she's out of her league. She made a stupid statement, and she will be remembered for it.

with the exception of Elizabeth Hasselbeck, the other four "ladies of the View" haven't got enough collective IQ to go toe-to-toe with Ann Romney.

She’s an idiot. My CO in Germany was a Morman. A major in the Security Police field. And he was a good commander, even though he didn’t raise hell like the rest of us. No drinking, smoking, or cussing for him, but a good CO nevertheless. He got up at 4 AM and ran 5 miles a day. Stayed in great shape. Caryn Elaine Johnson (her real name) makes me sick to my stomach ever time I hear her nasally, whining mouth.

While listening to a radio talk show, I heard a woman say that Romney “doesn't want women working outside the home” and that was reason enough for her not to support him. How gullible are these people?

Odious Maximus!

If there was still a “Fairness Doctrine” (I don’t want it), The Obamas should be required to sit with Mark Levine and/or Sean Hannity for an open and unrehearsed GRILLING!

Hey Whoopi, can you demonstrate your total worship of Obama any more clearly?

< sigh > I can never watch Star Trek: The Next Generation anymore without realizing who she is. Usually I can suspend reality enough to enjoy a show or movie but she is so pervasive with her leftist drivel, it’s nearly impossible to think of her as Guinan and not recall her real life idiocy.

I used to like her; she should have stayed “Guinan”. You’d think she may have learned something playing a character displaced from her home by a race of evil beings. Sometimes Whoppi, there is no reasoning with the Borg (Islamic terror).

Geez, Mormans are among the straightest and staunchest members of the military. I knew them as co-workers over 30 years ago

Whoopi’s hair must be braided too tight

Ann Romney might have said “You must be thinking of Quakers-as in the sect that runs the school where Obama sends his children”

Mormons are very heavily represented in the military intelligence field, due to a lot of them knowing foreign languages after their two years overseas missions. The RMs (returned missionaries) also tend to be very straight laced and pass the security clearance requirements handily. I worked with countless Mormons in that field. They’re probably 15-20% of the national intelligence workforce, and well organized within it. They’re even opening up an NSA satellite site out in Utah.
