It's easy to compare Martin Luther King to George Romney.

Both were against the Vietnam War and underminded the US campaign in Vietnam, thus promoting global communism.

George Romney attempted to hijack the GOP away from Barry Goldwater in 1964.

J. Edgar Hoover once called Martin King the most notorious liar in America. I think the same can be said of George, Lenore, and Mitt Romney.

Martin King and Geroge Romney were two peas in a pod. Just like Mitt Romney and Barrack Obama.

Your whole post is nonsense, so I won't even waste my time arguing your feeble attempt for clarity. The reality is, George Romney was for civil rights, just as his son now is Mitt Romney. I know how hard it is for a non-rational person to stay on topic, but please try. Most logical people will see the truth about Mitt Romney for what it is. He is for civil rights and will be a great leader for our country.

Romney can't tell the difference between reality and dreams? Oh My Heck! He just showed his character level, and it is sad. He had a major television audience, so he took advantage of it, and exaggerated what happened. Now, after the truth has come out, maybe the major news channels won't cover it, and most voters will still think he is a honest and upright candidate. Even I, who am not a fan of his non-christian faith, do not believe he is as imcompetent, to have a honest and accidental memory lapse, in front of the national news cameras. Would he have more memory lapses, of perhaps, WMD's in Iran, Syria, North Korea?

I recall many Republicans being involved in the Civil Rights movement, no doubt including George Romney. But that isn't really the issue. The Mitt explanation seems a bit like the "varmint gun" thing in which Mitt tried to pass himself off as a hunter. The words "I saw" usually give a pretty clear indication of a personal experience. And surely by now Mitt knows that his words are examined carefully, as they are with all major candidates. I don't understand why he puts himself in these little holes. I don't like what it may indicate when something important is being discussed, as it is every day in the White House. Our next president MUST be trustworthy.
