The thread said "Republicans only please", not " Liberals please give your unwanted opinion"

Thanks

I always thought Mitt Romney would have been good on a ticket since he is brilliant with issues on the economy (which we are not seeing with the current administration)

The consensus seems to be that Mitt should be the man and should have been the man last time, so we need to unite and make sure that happens before another disaster like the last election occurs.

To Republicans:

Considering that Romney lost the primary this past election, are you at all concerned that people might also refuse to vote for him in the general election due to his religious affiliation? In my conservative hometown, his religion seemed to be a sticking point for a lot of people. They tend to think of Mormonism as a non-Christian religion and in some cases a cult and I can't say that I disagree based on certain aspects of the church. Do you see that as a risk factor? Or do you expect that people will overlook a religion that might make them uncomfortable in favor of his political positions?

That is a very bigotted point of view and Republicans better start voting for a political leader not a religious one. I don't agree with a lot of different religions and if I voted only based on religion it would eiminate quite a few good candidates.

That is unfortunate if true. I hear that a lot of Mormons in Nevada support Harry Reid simply because he is a Mormon...religion should not be the key to electing Republicans. Harry Reid is a pro-illegal alien scumbag and is intent on screwing average Americans everywhere regardless of their religious affiliation. I liked Romney, not as much as Fred Thompson. Had Romney been chosen as V.P., McCain might have had a chance against Obama.

I recommend the Zoloft, maybe even a psychotherapeutic like Thorazine™?
