When I was a kid living in Chicago in the early 1950s, a newspaper strike prevented delivery of the Sunday papers. So a radio personality read the comics on-air so we could enjoy them anyway. This article reminds me of those days, but it's worse. Regurgitating an article from another newspaper, commenting on its "juicy" statements, is only a step above plagiarism. Can't you get your own information without having to read another paper and quote from it?

I appreciate the article and wish Romney vs Huntsman could be our real choices for President.

Jon Huntsman would be a disaster as President. I can't imagine anyone beyond his mother voting for him. A true arrogant, power seeking RINO.

Wow, talk about lazy plagarism.

It's sad that two grown men who purport to be good LDS members are feuding. Pretty immature. I think their grandparents would be disappointed.

This article's agenda is so obvious:
1) Make Romney appear bitter and angry. Say that he's "livid" at Huntsman. Don't disclose how the Post was able to divine such a thing.
2) Make Mormonism appear weird by highlighting the beliefs that sound most bizarre to outsiders: an exhibit of the Urim and Thummim and gold plates in the "Joseph Smith Center" (Joseph Smith Building) at BYU.
3) Make Huntsman appear more rational than Romney by painting Huntsman as only loosely Mormon, while Romney "defined by" Mormonism and is beholden to the Church hierarchy.
4) Pound home the point that if you vote for Romney, you vote for Mormonism. Characterize his speech on faith as a defense of Mormonism. Then bring up "sacred undergarments."
5) Omit any mention of Romney's past accomplishments. Only mention the 2002 Winter Olympics to tell an otherwise pointless story about Romney "sneaking up on" a skier and giving him a bunch of medals he hadn't earned, vaguely suggesting that Romney was up to something "suspicious." Paint Romney's handling of the games as political opportunism secured corruptly, and the real work already done.

That SHOULD read:
MITT ROMNEY would be a disaster as President. I can't imagine anyone beyond his mother voting for him. A true arrogant, power seeking RINO.

Huntsman is the good choice, and would make an excellent President (and has showed that he can make the tough decisions and not duck them). Romney, on the other hand, would change his positions based on whatever the person to whom he was speaking would want to hear. No thanks, Mitt -- don't need you, don't want you.
