Skip to comments.James Carville: Romney’s Mormon religion still a problem [Mitt silent on bishop, gov roles]
Posted on 07/08/2012 8:01:01 AM PDT by Colofornian
n an appearance on WWL radio in New Orleans earlier this week, James Carville surveyed the Romney campaign and said the presumptive GOP nominee still hasnt overcome the issue of his Mormon religion.
According to Carville, who has a forthcoming book called Its the Middle Class, Stupid, Romneys reluctance to talk openly about that is keeping him from dominating the campaign against President Barack Obama.
One of the problems that Romney has honestly is the thing against him the most is his religion, Carville said. And he doesnt understand the reasons. He doesnt talk about that. He was a bishop in his church. And he doesnt talk about the one public office that he held much and that was being the governor of Massachusetts. So, he talks about Bain, but thats become sort of a big issue in the campaign. Hes got to, you know if you look at the numbers, Romney should win this campaign.
So, I think Romney is going to come out I think theyre going to recalibrate their strategy a little bit, he said. I think theyre going to have to. And he just going to have to be more aggressive talking about some of the things he has done and give people a window into as who he is.
The best thing for Romney to do, Carville said, would be to highlight his ability to fix things.
I would say, look people are looking for someone that can fix things, Carville said. And you got to tell them Romney is that guy. You know, you accomplished that with the Olympics. You actually accomplished that when you were governor of Massachusetts. And you actually accomplished that when you ran Bain.

As opposed to someone with questionable motives...like yourself? Someone intending to vote FOR a liberal and calling himself ‘conservative’?
You and logical thought are parallel lines Yam. Never will the two meet. Once again, I have an open offer out there. You tell me how a conservative can vote for a liberal without abandoning his conservative beliefs to do so and I’ll campaign for Romney.
A simple request that you continue to make excuses for and duck out of. Come on Yam...tell the class how it’s done.
I disagree. IMO he's got a hefty monthly paycheck from the Romney campaign.
It’s good to see some conservatives vet Romney unlike the elites in the GOP.
We should not be like Obama voters and stick our heads in the sand and pretend there’s nothing wrong with this candidate.
If the right wants to have integrity, they must accept the truth about Romney and his kookie religion, otherwise if they ignore it, lie to cover it up or use Alinsky tactics to stop others from speaking out, then they’ve become as evil as the left.
I thought exactly this about John McCain and voted for him anyway.
This was because he was running against a dull-witted, inexperienced, wrong-headed narcissist who hated white people and hated America.
Whisper, whisper, whisper.
He’s already there. He ‘claims’ it’s not him though. But then he claims that a conservative can vote for a liberal with a straight face so his logic obviously leaves a lot to be desired.
He’s also afraid of answering questions that could upset his deep rooted desire to do so. People say he once FReeped with the best of them in Frisco. I wonder how he went from active defiance of libs to open support of them.
Personally, I think many people have so little confidence in the concept of the United States of America, they have begun to suffer with obamahysteria.
That's all --
Anti what? Anti liberal? Anti hypocrisy? Anti egg custard?
"Vetting" is what you do when deciding whether to choose one thing instead of something else.
The choice before us in November is between Romney and Obama.
Those here on FR who say they will not vote for either Obama or Romney, and who continually trash Romney, are not "vetting" Romney. They are campaigning against him. The only possible result of this trashing is to make Romney more likely to lose the election.
These are simple, undeniable truths, yet they are denied here on FR every single day.
This is what passes for "true conservatism" here these days.
Romneycare is Massachusetts state law and is the responsibility of the MA legislature and the people of MA. If they like it, fine. If they want to change or eliminate it, they can. You arrogantly declare that it "has been unmitigated financial disaster" but apparently the people living with it do not agree.
...and explain just exactly how he will euthanize Obamacare.
Romney has done this. Why do you claim otherwise?
When you vote for romney you are voting for the wrong side of all relevant issues and ending up with a President just like obama.
I look forward to the convention.
They are filled with fear. Not one ABO can stand here and honestly say they are ‘standing up for what they believe in’. If they can, then they believe in abortion, a homosexulaized country, Romney care and the rest of Mitt Romney’s record.
If that’s what they want, they’ll get it. It’s their choice to make. If every ABO in America voted for Goode or Tom, then then we’d have neither O or MR. But because they are too afraid of what ‘might’ happen, they will not. FEAR...they haZ it! And we are all in deep poop because they refuse to stand ‘for’ something.
Imagine all the founding fathers with a pragmatic attitude and situational ethics... We’d have Rule Britania as the national anthem.
It would be hard to point to a more clearly distilled example of "projection" than this.
Hey Yam, why do you keep ducking my question?
I’m voting for Romney. The GOP shoved him down our throats and now we are stuck with him.
If the GOP wanted this man then they will have all this flaws chained to their necks. If Romney does anything like he did when he was gov of Massachusetts then that too will be chained to the necks of the GOP.
Just because I’m voting for Romney, I will not hide from the truth of who he is. He is a class one fraud. My only hope is for the Tea Party conservatives to hold his feet to the promises he’s made.
A simple request that you continue to make excuses for and duck out of. Come on Yam...tell the class how its done.
I have done that repeatedly and you know it.
You claim otherwise because you have no integrity.
You know zero in my opinion about conservationism otherwise you would not be supporting Romney an abortion supporter, homosexual agenda supporter, man made global warming supporter, government mandate supporter, big government supporter..........and on and on supporter of liberal programs.
You are a liar.
I invite everyone here to view Yam’s post history over the last 2-4 days. They show definitively he has not.
He flatly REJECTED my offer and told me I was not sincere.
Do I HAVE to post it for you Yam? Or will you just admit you are a liar and be done with it?
