This post is hillarious as support for Slick Willy. I'm not quite sure whether the OP intended it to be facetious or not, but it is what it is.

ROMNEY'S OFFICIAL SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT POST

Alright, let's get some things straight right now about Mitt Romney. If it weren't for Shmuckabee and a damn dirty trick in Florida, Mitt would be on his way to a well earned nomination right now. Mitt's put more money into this thing than just about anybody in history and he should have won this two states ago. All the big boys support Mitt. It's a rip-off! I've never seen so many unfair lies and tom foolery. You want the truth, here's the truth:

1. Mitt was pro-choice a very long time ago, but he was ALWAYS pro-life personally. Technically, this is not a "flip-flop" because he never really was pro-choice. He never, I repeat never, personally attended an abortion or had one himself.

2. Mitt was never for gay marriage. He was for gay rights. Big difference. This allegation is a flat out slander on Mitt's goobernutorial record. He's always maintained that gays should not get married, even if they're mormons.

3. Mitt never raised taxes as governor. He created and raised fees. Big difference. Lowering taxes is in Mitt's DNA.

4. In Massachussets, Mitt got everybody on health insurance by fining all the "freeloaders" who showed up at the hospital and couldn't pay their medical bill. This has been hailed as a progressive approach to health care because statistics show it reduced sickness in the state.

5. Mitt has hunted. And, while he wasn't really endorsed by the NRA, they did indicate that Mitt wasn't objectionable because the people of the state of Massachussets were in favor of stricter gun laws.

6. Mitt never called for "timetables" for withdrawal from Iraq. Mitt specifically said he would not support any public timetable to withdraw troops from Iraq. That's what he said, it's strong leadership, and it shows that Mitt has the gravitas to take an unpopular position when it's the right thing to do. In the now famous statement, when Mitt talked about "private" timetables it's clear he was talking about benchmarks, not a date for withdrawal. He was talking about the mere possibility of private timetables for benchmarks. LOL Senator McCain cleverly and in Nixonian fashion inserted the word "withdrawal" for "benchmarks." Of course Mitt wouldn't want al quaeda to "lie in the weeds and wait for us to leave" a particular sector of Iraq for another sector of Iraq when a benchmark was met. That's just common sense and good old presidential acumen. This whole thing was a LIE and a damn dirty trick. And, McCain did this two days before the Florida primary. LOL Nice try senator.

7. Mitt was ALWAYS for the surge. Mitt was asked about it when he was still governor and he appropriately said that he couldn't comment. But, he was always for the surge personally.

8. Of all the presidential candidates, only Mitt Romney has the experience and the judgment to run the war. He may not have ever served in the military, but he's very well read on the subject. Mitt's experience as a CEO of a multinational corporation gives him unique credentials to deal in foreign policy. He knows how to do it, AND make money. This is the American way. Plus, let's face it, military men can play the war game but when it comes to running the economy and the rest of the stuff, they just don't have the intellect to multi-task. Lincoln won the CIVIL WAR and he wasn't a soldier. That war was alot bigger than this war. So get off your high horse senator McCain.

Island tax havens factor into Romney's business success

Offshore dealings like those of the Republican presidential candidate trouble many, but they're legal.
By Bob Drogin, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
December 17, 2007

The fact that businesses benefit by moving their headquarters to a mailbox in the Cayman Islands is telltale that we need to eliminate corporate tax.

This fix is built in to the FairTax as it eliminates the income tax both for individuals and businesses. This is a great reason why we need to implement the FairTax. It is business friendly as well as good for the people.

See the FairTax.

Why would any social conservative support Slick Willy?

The guy was already 47 years old when he had these opinions. He was already 47 years a Mormon. If he didn't have any socially conservative convictions by then, how unlikely is it that he would be a social conservaitve at 60 years old

His revelation happened within the last two years, didn't it? About the time he started running for president. It looks like he is an opportunist that has no core convictions.

That magic underwear bit is awesome.

Sorry, Scott. It's the only vid I watched, though I've seen the Mormon origins cartoon.

But don't all Christians use magical thinking like that? Why is Mormonism wrong, and other Christian denominations correct? Stop judging others.

Of course, Romney does put the 'mental' in 'fundamentalism'.

Anybody but Romney.

In the debates Governor Mike Huckabee was routinely asked questions about his faith as a Christian to try to embarrass him. He answered the questions. Governor Willard Mitt Romney was given a pass. He was not asked about his faith as a Mormon.

The speech that Willard Mitt Romney gave was one to tell the press that they can't ask him about his Mormonism. It had nothing to do with dealing with the concern he would be a puppet for the Mormon Prophet of the LDS Church. It didn't answer questions about how he would regard women in the workplace. It didn't deal with Mormon doctrine against people with dark skin.

Since Willard Mitt Romney believes that he will be a god of his own planet because of his good works, and since the judgement of his works depends on Joseph Smith and being guided by the Mormon Prophets, what degree of influence will the brand new Mormon Prophet have on his decision making (whether this influence is over or whether it is covert)? Since a Mormon Prophet has as much influence on the LDS Church as the 12 apostles in the New Testament Bible, we increase our leadership risk with a Mormon President. Romney already proved that what he says in the campaign doesn't translate in the least to what he says in office. It is frightening to consider some of the possibilities.

If Israel rebuilt the temple in Jerusalem, could a Mormon leader seek to take his seat in the Holy Place? They are called Latter Day Saints. Certainly they believe we are in the end times. What do the prophesies say?

Governor Huckabee hasn't been a Baptist preacher since over 12 years ago. How about Mitt Romney? When was he a LDS Stake President? What is his status in the LDS church now?

"Romney himself has served as a stake president, an office loosely akin to that of a Catholic bishop. This fusion of laity and clergy means that rank-and-file Mormons are bound to the pronouncements of church leaders in a way that Catholic parishioners are not -- indeed, rank-and-file Mormons often are the ones implementing church policy."

What is the relationship that Orrin Hatch and Harry Reid have to the LDS Church? Are they also stake leaders? I don't know about them. In any case, in congress they are not leaders. The President of the United States is a leader. If we had a majority in congress who were LDS, then I might worry about that. I am sure I have voted for Mormons in Idaho state and local government, and probably for Idaho representation in congress. I have not had adequate answers to reasonable questions (I may be a little more informed than the typical voter about Mormons).

Finally - these questions I have asked have nothing to do with any other campaign. These questions are a few that I would have about Willard Mitt Romney no matter who else was in the race.

I resist the deception. A wolf in sheeps clothing will not get past me (I hope).

If Willard Mitt Romney were the Republican Party nominee, the Democrats would have a hay day. It would be a slaughter.

Mitt Romney - "The Candidate of Change"

Mitt Romney was Pro-Life, then he CHANGED.

Mitt Romney was Pro-Choice, then he CHANGED

Mitt Romney was in favor of gun control, including bans on assault rifles and handguns, then he CHANGED.

Mitt Romney favored secret timetables for withdrawal from Iraq, then he CHANGED.

Mitt Romney supported Civil Unions and the right for Gays to marry. Now he has CHANGED.

Mitt Romney said he was a life long hunter, but after he was caught in this lie he CHANGED his story.

Mitt Romney said he saw his father march with Martin Luther King, after being caught in this lie, he CHANGED his story.

Mitt Romney said Mike Huckabee is a liberal. Now he has CHANGED his story and is complaining that Huckabee is bleeding off his conservative vote.

Mitt Romney wanted to raise taxes in Massachusetts so he CHANGED their name to fees.

Mitt Romney said he was not a part of the Reagan-Bush thing, then he CHANGED his story to say he would rebuild the house that Reagan built.

Romney is the candidate of change alright, but his change involves his positions on many key issues. We cannot trust this man.

What is CA?

BTW: All four of the republicans are very different from one another. The only one that I likely would not vote for in November is Romney.

I don't think Huckabee is owned by corporate America. He is actually so much not corporate America the right wing media calls him populist and liberal. I disagree with them. He is in favor of promoting small business. That's not to say much against big business. It's just that small business has too many obstacles today.

A person whose religion is criticized constantly, makes fun of other religions... seems quite ironic that he expects his religion to be respected when people read what he has to say.

That is the most stupid statement I've ever heard. Now do people see my point? I find myself having to explain OVER and OVER again that Islam IS NOT terrorism. Why are you blaming Islam if people twist it and use it in ways it shouldnt be used. Islam NEVER condones killing innocents even though George W might seeing as what he is doing in Iraq!

This is exactly what I mean by the bloody governments and media "Islamic terrorist", "Islamic Jihadist, "Islamic suicide bomber, "radical Islamist", bla bla bla...all of this stick in the publics mind when they hear it 24/7. Now people are spitting out stupid statements and blaming Islam instead of seeing the real problem in the world.
