Really? You got some kind of proof?

i'll bet if we jumped up and down and screamed bloody murder about it, we could get it to become the newest racial slur.

Never mind. We just aren't made that way.

And why would it need to be a lapsed or excommunicated Mormon? Surely you're not implying that an excommunicated Mormon would be a more accurate source of information on the faith than a practicing Mormon. No, never mind. I get it. You're not looking for the truth; you're looking for confirmation bias. When you decide you want the truth, I'd be happy to be your resource, that is unless you have some really good reason for not trusting me. (P.S. I'm a Mormon, but I'm voting for Obama.)

I get what you're saying too. It ain't "racism" it's culture. I'm of Irish family and it's well known how my people were treated by the English back in the day. But then's then and now's now, things change and "WASP" is a way of life, NOT a skin color or race. Yeah; I just said it: a dude needn't be pasty white to be a WASP in 2012, that dude can be Black IMHO.

Did anyone at all read the story linked? The quote was from an 'unnamed advisor' of unknown rank or closeness to Romney. It could have been a campaign volunteer. It could have been someone who once emailed the campaign to offer advice.

Anyway the language is not really incendiary unless you wish it to be. "Typical white person" anyone? "Slight Indian accent?" This is almost as dumb as the yowling from the left over 'kitchen cabinet.'

and so am I, and SO IS BARACK OBAMA (or at least he's of Irish and English ancestry, if not Scottish). If you want to get into a spitting match over "American" credentials, I think you should take a look at his genealogy. His mom's parents were from old American families who came here from Great Britain/Ireland/Scotland. What Romney's surrogate said was just ridiculous. He's an idiot.

I almost feel sorry for Romney, I really think he is a decent person that is running for the presidency , and alowing these radicals in his party to ruin his good reputation so he might win.

He would have been better off doing some humanitrian work with his money and influence. What a shame for him.

First of all its a racist comment and has the adviser forgotten Obama's mother was white? or does he believe in the "one drop" rule. You know if you have any black blood in you, you are black. Most African-Americans today have white ancestors due to slave masters raping black slaves.

"an adviser to the campaign made comments suggesting the Republican presidential candidate's commitment to rebuilding the so-called "special relationship" between England and the United States has to do with a sense of "Anglo-Saxon heritage."

"We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special," "The White House didn't fully appreciate the shared history we have."

the adviser suggested that Mr. Obama could not understand the depth of the relationship between the two countries because he cannot fully appreciate the shared "Anglo-Saxon heritage."


Romney camp denies "Anglo-Saxon heritage" comment - Political Hotsheet - CBS News
I don't know what he said or if what you are quoting was taken out of context, my guess is: it was, but regardless, there might be a little truth to the statement: do you think anglo-Saxon can totally identify or understand black culture. This isn't a negative, just a fact.

I agree with you on this. Hopefully after this election they will come back to their sense,and clense the party of these extreme radicals.
