Everyone is fighting for the soul of the Republican party.

Romney is a good manager, but he lacks the solidarity that anchors him completely on Constitutional principles and rights. His lack of understanding on the role of congress in war, his support for the NDAA, and other red flags show his apathy towards the protection of the Constitution. I would rather think he is ignorant to his violations, rather than blatantly ignoring Constitution principle.

I am afraid of his hawkish attitude. Romney may make Billions of cuts to government spending, but may incur Trillions of dollars in a war with Iran. You can't be a fiscal conservative and a war liberal.

FInally, his previous support of TARP and other bills that are crony-capitalistic and even socialistic makes me worry.

Romney may be a good manager, but he is shaky when he stands on principle. When one is shaky on principle, you cannot expect a consistant performance, but rather scattered.

We may not have some of our regulars on this thread tonight. They love to tell us Mormons that we are paranoid and delusional with an inferiority complex when we suggest there is still some anti-Mormon feeling out there that has an effect on this race. Watching the CNN and Fox News exit polls and see the shockingly high percentage of people who say they won't vote for Romney because of their religion...it is truly sobering.

Exit polling showed yesterday that Romney has a problem. He has chased the conservative wing to no avail, selling his soul, and the religious right still won't vote for him. This says a lot about this country, and,unfortunately, Romney.

"... that religious bigotry is Âa shame, Âa disgrace, and Âvery, very unfortunate.Â

But it is so very natural that it is practiced by nearly every religion including Mormons.

ÂItÂs remarkable that the Republicans are in such disarray that they just seem unable to pick a candidate, The Democratic Party is in the same disarray.

The reason is that "we live in a world where moral character ofttimes is relegated to a position secondary to... personal charm."

I think we should vote out all those who are there who have caused the problems we have. Are we better off now than we were 4 years ago?

Alumni,

Romney has pandered to the right wing. He is so afraid of saying what he believes because of the far GOP right. His lack of conviction to his beliefs was painfully apparent when he talked about the Blunt legislation.

He initially made a very reasonable assessment, but then walked it back for fear of the right.

That DOES say a lot about Romney. Not that he is bigoted.

I can give you 1000 reasons NOT to vote for Obama and one of them is his continual fight against Christianity. The most anti-Christian man ever in the White House. From "We are not a Christian nation" to his demand of the removal of all Christian symbols during speaking assignments at Christian universities to the current fight with the Catholic church. Religion should play a part - a BIG part!!

You're dead wrong Patriot. Religion should play NO part in government ran schools, buildings, or laws.

America was started on an escape from religious persecution. Your freedom to belief what you want is protected but our rights to have a state separate from a church has never been the case. It needs to be.

To quote you again regarding whomever is in the White House:

"Religion should play a part - a BIG part!!"

Then head to a different country such as the Middle East .... when you're not busy bombing them for pushing the same thing.

In a general election, if religion becomes an issue, the comparison of Mitt Romney with Barack Obama cannot help President Obama. He spent 20 years in Jeremiah Wright's church listening to sermons 99 percent of Americans would find abhorrent.
