Skip to comments.MSNBC's O'Donnell on Romney's "Mormon Problem": How Moronism Was "Invented"

And so begins the MSM turn on the Republican nominee. And as much as I hate to credit the MSM, and particularly O'Donnell, I cannot find anything in his rant that is inaccurate, other than the number of wives Joseph Smith claimed. O'Donnell says 48, but I believe the most consistent number put forward by historians is 27. On the other hand, Brigham Young claimed 56 wives, so O'Donnell is certainly within range.
If I have a rattlesnake slithering on my floor as well as a cottonmouth, I am going to set about reducing both of them to crushed meat pulp. Neither of the reptiles is ‘mine’.
No, Texas is not going to be changing the rules regarding delegates. The RNC already made plain that they won't allow that. It's just grasping at straws and it will not happen. Santorum's campaign is pushing this stuff to create some buzz and interest, but the reality is Texas will not be allowed to change the way delegates are awarded.
Something else seems to have escaped your notice...the egregious bias of the elite RNC, the republican pols that owed Mitt for donations to their campaigns and causes and paid off in endorsements, and not the least the openly pimping of media such as Fox news, Drudge Report, National Review on and on.
In some areas the lock-step mormon vote gained him delegates and mormon money has funded his super PAC. He had a whole lot of help in his "mopping the floor" and his millions and the millions of his mormon allies paid for it.
When you come on FR to defend Romney, it's best that you take off your blinders and really see what has been going on under your nose.
I’ll be damned. I hate it when that happens.
OK I’ll say again I’m not on FR about Romney.
Believe it or don’t believe it. Up to you.
Have a nice Easter.
Since you are so confident of this, I'm sure you can provide a source to verify it. Please.
Ok, cring then stop defending Romney and his stink’n liberalism.
Have a nice Easter.
And a blessed Easter to you also. ;0)
“An Obama re-election may mean America is finished. Stark choice. Focus people.”
As I and others keep telling you. The “stark choice” isn’t there. Romney is NO better, and could be worse in many ways as pointed out by others here.
Also, since you like “facing facts.” Romney, among Republicans, seems to either induce extreme revulsion (like in my case) or apathy. He will not win in a general election because the base of the party won’t vote for him...even against Obama. Many are considering not voting or voting third party. Those that actually “like and support” him actively, are a minority (mainly Anne Coulter who I suspect wants to be one of his wives!).
At best he may get passive support. That isn’t enough to overcome Obama. He is toast before he even starts. Also, I’m afraid that his “ho-hum” reception will hurt conservative Republicans running for the House and Senate.
The man is a disaster. I don’t know how anyone can stomach even passive support. However, I do know that an “Anybody but Obama” support is not enough to win. That “stark contrast” you mentioned really needs to exist....it doesn’t with Romney. His candidancy will result in the most lopsized loss by the GOP ever.
What are the alternatives? To actively oppose him now and continue to do so....force the RNC to reform. Romney is going to lose anyway. Conservatives MUST get control of the RNC or we need to refuse to back there picks. We are not dumb sheep.
Time for a serious revolution.
Meeting the kids and grandkids for dinner in Saint George tomorrow at a very fine Italian restaurant(so they say). I hope they have ham on the menu. Wouldn’t be Easter without ham.
“Lets not devolve into groupthink please.”
My friend, an ABO mindset is also a “groupthink.”
Can you not grasp that a great many here consider Romney no better than Obama? You cannot change that thinking, because it is based upon truth. He is no better, and he cannot win anyway. So, why support him instead of fighting the establishment to stop making us take the “lesser of two evils” - which in this case isn’t so.
No one here is going to vote for Obama. His epic worthlessness is not disputed. We want him gone also, but not at the price of surrending to Romney as the candidate for the GOP. That is a serious afront to conservatives of ALL stripes. It cannot be allowed anymore. IF it takes a walkout on the GOP establishment’s choice...then so be it.
Summary: We don’t agree with you that Romney is better than Obama. We won’t support him.
> So you want Romney to lose to Obama, because you dont like Mormons?
What I want is for conservatives to stop losing to the Romneys/Doles/Specters/GOPe/RINOs.
As far as Romney vs. Obama, there’s an old Biblical principle that “Satan cannot cast out Satan”. Likewise, Romney cannot cast out Obama.

“It will the Republicans in Congress and the job of the courts to stop him if he tries that. The Presidency is not a dictatorship and if Obama tried to make it one, measures can be taken to stop him.”
Exactly! And they will be. We won’t accept a candidate that fails to live up to minimal standards of acceptance out of fear of a known evil (Mr. Obama).
Romney is not satan.
You thinking that Romney is going to be better than Obama on judicial appointments is bogus. Go back and read post 35 by SoConPubbie.
Amazing how people don’t want to face the truth. Romney - even IF he could get elected - won’t make better appointments. At best we will get another “Justice Souter” or worse.
Your fear of Obama’s picks are real and justified. However, your thinking that Romney is in anyway a solution is specious.
The thing is, it won’t be four years of Romney, it will be 16. My cousin’s family went through this in Canada, where a Romney type got into power and it took conservatives about 20 years to rebuild a conservative movement.
If Romney wins, it will be eight years or Romney followed by either years of a Democrat White House after Romney’s Obamaesque policies taint the Republican brand. Not to mention all the GOPe and RINOs pointing out Romney’s victory as the death of conservatism and the only way forward for the GOP.
I agree with everything you say here.
It’s not Obama personally that needs to be beaten, but his policies. Ordinarily the easiest way to be a politician’s policies is to beat the politician and the polls. But in this case Obama’s main opponent is Romney, whose record as governor of Massachusetts is just as liberal if not more so than Obama’s presidential record.
So conservatives need to work for Newt and Santorum to try and defeat Romney before convention. In the event that Romney still gainst the nomination, conservatives should support a third party at the top and work vigorously for conservative Republicans downticket.
