B. Romney

So? What's your point? Maybe you should spend your time writing relevant articles? Just a thought.

has nothing to do with him at all as a man, father husband or president. he is outstanding, and a better family man than 90% of people. If this is such a concern why are there no media stories covering Barack hussain obama and his Muslim religion

the big deal is from the desire to not embrace truth and true history. it is what it is,why deny or shame your roots by calling it strange. Our history is not a pick and choose, he should be kinder to his family.

This is very relevant! Romney has ties to Mexico?!?! And his own father was an immigrant to the U.S. from Mexico. So, how can he be so staunchly anti-immigrant? And how can he be so xenophobic when it comes to Mexicans or other Latinos?

Once the edict to desist was announced, what were the men and their wives and children to do?? Of course they had to move to Mexico where they banded together and lived through inexplicable hardship and sacrifice to raise and love their children, TO KEEP THEIR FAMILIES INTACT. They were doing their best to obey the law...absolutely the highest moral standards were kept, and beautiful,peaceful home towns were formed. Odd how its the shackersup and most loosely moraled people are the greatest critics of the Mormons!! I'm one who spent time in those towns and experienced for myself the legacy of those dedicated ancestors of Mitt. He's right it is "weird" to anyone who hasn't lived it. Mitts gene pool consists of the highest quality on earth today.

Bo: Your comment might be a bit relevant if you realized that according to U.S. law, his father is not an immigant because he was born of parents who are American citizens. Then his father moved to the US during childhood, so there really is American citizenship where all are concerned. He is not a Mexican or a Latino. His ancestors left the US in order to be lawful so they could practice poligamy, which seems much different than illegal immigrants who enter the US illegally. As far as Romney being xenophobic, which according to Webster xenophobia is: 'fear or hatred of strangers or foreigners or anything that is strange or foreign', Mr. Romney is anything but xenophobic. He does quite well with strangers and foreigners! He doesn't seem a bit fearful of them, and seems to be quite genuine with his respect of others. He seems to be very kind and gracious, willing and anxious to learn new things and meet new people. By the way, he seems not to be 'staunchly anti-immigrant' however (and hopefully), saunchly anti ILLEGAL immigrant. Thankfully there are still some people in the USA who value legality.
