Why poor Mitt can’t be President

      Personally, I really like the guy. Handsome, articulate, wholesome. A lot like me. So whats not to like? Oh ya. He's a Morman. So why should that matter? I remember when A Catholic could not be President because America would then become a servant of the Pope!!! God forbid. JFK shattered that myth. But to many of my uber right wing gun toting God speaking evangelical baptist family members, neighbors and (almost) friends, a MORMAN IS NOT A CHRISTIAN.  Is this not the epitome of discrimination?

But to many of my uber right wing gun toting God speaking evangelical baptist family members, neighbors and (almost) friends, a MORMAN IS NOT A CHRISTIAN.  Is this not the epitome of discrimination? Does not the very Constitution on which our nearly perfect Democracy is based specifically rule out discrimination based on race, color or creed? All men created equal, blah, blah, blah? Notice there was no specific mention of women? But I digress.

      So poor old Mitt cannot pass the most fundamental test of the far right. Being a "real" Christian.  At least Obama broke down the race and color barriers. Which is one of the reasons I proudly voted for him. And while I'm at it, why not a Jew or a woman, or a black Jewish woman for President? The sad fact is prejudice runs deep in the heart of all religious fundamentalists. Be they Christian, Muslim or Jew. And all the fundamentalists are scary.  Given the chance,they will happily deny the freedom of choice to all other competing beliefs. Dogma reigns supreme and exceptions to dogma are fiercely resented.

       

      So chew on this and spit back at me if you got any balls.

                I would definitely vote for a black jewish lesbian.

                You are worse than Rush Limbaugh to listen to sometimes.  Kind of Bill O Reilly esque actually, the Bill Factor.

                Like Romney too, but hey if Obama can get elected, anything is possible.  I also like the fact that he isn't riding around in a big stupid f-cking bus.

                      I'm really sad that Michele Bachman dropped out. She was eye candy ( a hot MLF), especially compared to Newt and the old wrinkled  disposable LIbertarian whats his name. Mitt is the only viable candidate. Saint Toriam is too much of a baby faced light weight.

                          Bachman is a rich man's Pelosi, too much plastic.  The amazing thing is how once these people show up, you can't get rid of them.  Palin still is shopping herself around for a news network.

                                              Hi Bonnie,

                                              If Bill is from where I am thinking, then we were close, distance wise but different states.  Wisconsin is the land of Cow Shit and Beer Farts, where Vince Lombardi is held in higher regard than the pope.  If you have a basement then you can make it into a public bar.  Old Style, Pabst, Point, Rhinelander and Leinenkugel beer reign supreme.  And yes, Land 'O Lakes makes butter.  Wisconsin does make a good cheese for all the cheesehead Packer Fans.. (Their nickname, not mine)

                                              The Upper Peninsula of Michigan was originally a part of Ohio but traded to Michigan for a pack of smokes and a nice pair of leather mittens.  And that, Bonnie Lea is your history lesson for the day…

                                              Yoopers are a refined bunch as this video will clearly show…. heehee

                                                            Nope, never crossed paths with Jim Harrison, sure would like to tho.  He seems like the kind of guy you wouldn't mind having a few pints with.  I looked him up after I read your post, quite a character.  I don't think I have read any of his books but will now. 

                                                            It's weird here in Michigan, warm, but going to get cold pretty soon with some snow… about time….

                                                            Nice hearing from you Stan, keep in touch,

She was eye candy ( a hot MLF), especially compared to Newt and the old wrinkled  disposable LIbertarian whats his name. Mitt is the only viable candidate.

From what I have seen he seems like a good option vs Mitt, or perhaps a VP? Both Mitt and Hunstman are too moderate for the present wacko leanings of the Republican party.  What a shame when a moderate conservative is considered a leftist.  I have always considered myself as an independent. Somewhat of a blend of liberal Republican and a conservative Dem.
