Your God is My God What Mitt Romney Could Say to Win the Republican Nomination - Comments

That was great! And actually more accurate of Mormon beliefs than other posts we have seen lately. I loved the tongue-in-cheek sarcasm.

I sure wish that, during the "interviews" that Huckabee has been doing of the Republican candidates on Fox, a voter would ask Romney a direct question like this:

Governor Romney, I would like to know your opinion on the importance of stressing scientific knowledge and education in this country. For example, do you believe the doctrine in the Book of Mormon that Native Americans are descendents of Jews? Or the scientists who have proven that their DNA links them to the oriental peoples of Asia?

Romney: Why, yes.

I imagine he's got an answer ready that says nothing and simultaneously induces applause.

Very amusing, but sadly if Romney gave that exact speech it probably would mean many on the christian right would actually now vote for him. After all they are no strangers to their politicians re-interpreting the truth to mean what is convenient on any given day.

Now Sam, you are just piling on. Let Mitt be Mitt. If Mitt wins the nomination, he will go down in November for all the things you have mentioned, but no need to burst his bubble just yet. Of course, if Santorum get the nod, he will be looking at a Goldwater class defeat.
