    My biggest problem with Romney is that he's a Mormon.

    If that makes me a bigot so be it, but there you go. I definitely don't think I am alone in this opinion, though.

    That is not true.



    People are allowed to change their opinion/view of certain issues.
    True, but when you are a politician, it doesn't look so good. Especially when you were pro-choice three years ago...but now you've "seen the light"



    He was hired as the CEO of the 2002 Winter games and donated his entire salary plus 1 million to charity. He has also created more jobs and saved more businesses than anyone out there... how is this not helping the country?
    HE DID NOT SERVE. He hawkishly advocates combat for others, but not for himself or his precious sons. At least McCain and Palin had kids in the fight.



    And delivering 3000 babies all of the sudden makes you qualified to lead the country?
    Yeah, b/c that's all Ron Paul ever did.

    Don't get me wrong, Ron Paul had some great ideas... but so do I; so does everyone....
    No, not everyone does have good ideas. Look at our current GOVT.

    Ron Paul couldn't dream of leading a country, the guy couldn't run a lemonade stand.
    You might watch where you say that...RP has a lot of support.

    He is an honest man. Unlike Mitt.

    I have very little concern for someone's religion. My concern is their political platform and how they will lead from their elected position. I know plenty of Mormons who are really nice, decent folk. I can't fault someone for their beliefs. It's the same with atheism, an atheist actually fairs the least probability of being elected and I don't think that fair. I think a person should be judged by their ideals and actions when running for public office; not which church they attend (or don't attend for that matter).
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

I just want to know so that I know when it will be okay to bring up all the pro-segregation Democrat politicians who went over the Republican party in the 60s-70s. As long as we're talking about mostly irrelevant **** that happened before most of us were born that is.

    Adding : I mean if Robert Byrd had joined the KKK 20 years ago or even 30 years ago. I'd be more inclined to agree with you but he was 20 something. 60+ years ago. It's not like he hasn't had ample time for his mistakes to catch up to him. I mean even to this day people bring him up in discussions which have LITTLE to do with him.

    New Gringritch screwed up by getting off on people screwing other people while he was doing the same less than 10 years ago. It's not like it happened yesterday but the differences in time, political climate are ridiculously large enough for someone of your political IQ to realize that while you'll find few people from the time Robert Byrd was in the KKK, you'll find most people in politics and most voters today were around when Newt was on his moral crusade.

    Please condense this rant into a coherent sentence containing an identifiable point so that I may address it.

    I really don't care about Robert Byrd. I'm not asking for his resignation either. I was merely using his example to make point, i.e., a politician's personal failings don't have to define his or her candidacy.

    I don't deny the hypocrisy of Newt's actions, nor do I make excuses for it. I'm just saying that I don't really care. His political acumen is quite refined and his fiscal conservatism is very appealing to me, and we all know he's not a social conservative at heart, so that's a plus, too...

    Also, in regards to the Byrd/Newt thing.

    There is a LARGE different between a state and a national election. I don't think Byrd would've fared nearly as well in a national election with his history

    What makes you think that? Say whatever else you want about Obama, he is a very bright person and talks very well on his feet. Remember how utterly he spanked McCain at all three debates? To say nothing of the fact that he's never had to run for office outside of his congressional district. I'm not sure how good a campaigner he'd be.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
