How about this hypothetical lead story for Univision and Telemundo?
Obama openly ridicules official Catholic position on abortion.
The Latino voters would love that one.

I was unaware that all latinos are catholic.

Besides who's rights are more important, the Catholic church or the individual American Citizen?
I side with the individual but others must believe that religion should have more rights.

Lets see Obama assails Romney for supporting someone who makes a statement contrary to his(Obamas) own position. What does he have to say to all his supporters who still support him after his proven lies regarding Benghazi. What about, it appears that his lies also include he left those Americans to die because he would not committ rapid response to try and save them. What a joke. It just shows he is and has been in over his head and does not deserve another four.

Mourdock said something really stupid. There's no way to bible weasel out of that. He pretty much single handedly killed my last remaining respect for religion. It's washing over repbulicans everywhere, including romney. If we can start to justify horrible things because 'god said', we need to really wonder if we're that different from the taliban.

I'm a caucasian female -- I certainly hope that anything stupid said by another caucasian female doesn't put me in a class that I believe and am endorsing what they are saying. So what, Romney endorsed a Republican running for office. He has already said he doesn't support what was said by Mourdock. What, you think they sat down and Romney said "OK, if I endorse you, this is what you will say". I'm thinking Romney thinks it was a stupid statement also.

Everyone bashing Romney and Ryan for their stand on abortion to me is as stupid as Mourdock. Yes as a woman I have a say what happens to my body, regardless of what government says. Sure, let government dictate my decisions. Isn't that basically what happened under the regime of Hitler resulting in mutilations and even death in the form of government directives?

If you have a strong personal belief why would you expect to change it because someone says they don't like it? I support their stand and conviction -- I don't have to agree, but at least I don't see them changing because someone screams "not fair".

Hutterite,

Mourdock(sp?) did say something really stupid. Try to consider the source before you give up on all things redeeming about religion. Sounds like you made up your mind way before he said something stupid anyway.

BO is more concerned with being hip and cool and throwing out as many "zingers" as he can, even if he makes a fool out of himself doing it. Bayonets are standard issue and training for marines to this day. Shows how uneducated not only BO is about the military he's commander-in-chief of, but all of his supporters who gobbled it up on twitter. I got more satisfaction out of how clueless dems proved to be in loving that comment so much. Of course, the media won't fact check or correct the error because they can't make the guy their going to vote for look dumb.

My bad. Everyone knows that most Latinos are Muslims.
Seriously, when you take away the amnesty bait Latinos line up nicely with the GOP on social issues, education, the economy and taxation.
Mourdock may have phrased the matter awkwardly, but it is the Catholic position. Ethical guidance given to Catholic health care agencies clearly states that if conception has occured leave the fetus alone. It is in God's hands.

The election has brought out the worst in Mr. Obama. After scare tactics, plain lies and obfuscation the president has the audacity to whine about Romney campaigning for the women's vote. Tell us what you will do in your second term, more of the same? Stop the attacks on your opponent and give us a vision. In 2008 I voted for you: less debt, jobs, jobs and more jobs, more transparency in your administration, an end to cronies in the White House and a post-partisan administration. You've failed me and others on every count and are a "one term proposition."
