    Thank you for giving me the example I needed.
    I don't think that you've proved anything here.
    Nobody 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.

    Romney's grandparents were polygamists. Conservative excuse-makers are going to say things like "They don't believe that anymore," (some of them still do), but I'm far more worried about what a man learns from familial connections than from some preacher.

    You're not anymore concerned with Obama's religion than Sean Hannity is. You only care that he's a Democrat, and therefore (in your mind), anything he does is wrong. That's the definition of "political hack."

    He flip flops on EVERYTHING. I am tired of it.

    What do you care if his grandparents were polygamists? Why is that even an issue to you?

    THIS is why I would never vote for him. And it is enough. The discussion about his religion is simply personal bigotry. People are entitled to be it...but own it. It is what it is. Intolerant religous bigotry. Shame.

    He is a flopper. But I mean I tend not to question a person's religious views unless it will directly impact me.

    It's as much of an issue as Rev. Wright. None at all.

    Personally, the Rev Wright issue wasn't something I was really concerned with, but I don't think what Romney's grandparents did is comparable to what church Obama chose to frequent.

    See: obama is in complete control of his choice of church.

    Romney has **** all control over who his grandparents are
