    I don't think he has a chance to win the Christian right vote.
    Or maybe he doesn't feel as though he should be a poster child for his religion.
    Or maybe he doesn't feel like his religion should define him.
    Or maybe he's as sick of the "omg, religion is key" debate that's been raging since some idiots decide Obama must be muslim.

    P.S., Only people who refuse to examine situations outside of their ideology would assume that Obamacare and Romneycare are the same or comparable. The people voted for Romneycare, for one. And there are about 5 other MAJOR reasons why it is completely different.

    But cling to ideology, by all means. That'll certainly move us forward.

    His faith does not cause me concern, but I do know a lot of people on the Christian Right that it does bother. It is definitely a detriment to his cause.

    Romney's religion is probably the reason he has the views and positions that he does. I disagree with those views. I will not be voting for him because of the views he holds, but I couldn't care less that it is his religion that is influencing those views.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Not really. Keeping your private life out of the media as much as possible prevents them from skewering it.

    Too liberal? The man is as close to a compromise of both sides as a politician could get. But he's not good enough because he has some "liberal" thinking. Maybe it's not liberal thinking in his head, but simply what he felt was the right course of action. The key things that seem to be against him are

    1. religion...because we are such tolerant and just people who adhere to the american ideal of freedom of religion
    2. liberalism...because people simply hate liberals
    3. he's not a known name...because popularity is an effective meter for skill and leadership

    all seem pretty shallow
