- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
I've never cared what religion my leaders held, only that they don't hold it too tightly.
As for Mr. Romney, he seems like an honorable man, and Massachusetts seems to like him. His record does not speak of heavy religious influence on his politics (gay marriage notwithstanding). If we had to have a republican in office, Romney is one of the non-evil possibilities.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
If the same state that kept sending Ted Kennedy back to the Senate can also elect Romney as Governor, then religion is not an issue you need worry about.

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
"God damn America" is only found in the Book of Bull****.
Calling yourself a "Reverend" ... don't mean **** libs. "Reverend Jesse Jackson". "Reverend Al Sharpton". Race-pimp political thugs all. God hasn't a damn thing to do with it.
