So he's basically too nice for the republican ticket? But Romney is going to
bring the fire and brimstone to the evangelicals? I think not.Who
cares? The religious right is full of hypocrits that go to mega churches to hear
how thier mansion is heaven comming along and then go to eat at Applebees and
watch a movie afterwards with thier shacked up significant other.
@junkgeek - There was no criticism of Pawlenty's pastor - he was compared to a
"good Samaritan", there's nothing critical or derogatory about that
comment. Being kind and a gentleman is not a bad trait.
It's highly ironic that an LDS-owned newspaper would run an article criticizing
anyone's faith or pastor, given how other voters view the church with suspicion.
Great work by the investigative sleuths on one of the lower tier REpublican
candidates. Where were they when Obama was running after attending
Rev. Jeremiah Wright't church for 20 years where very controversial opinions
were expressed? [I would characterize that more strongly and specifically, but
the censors would not like it.]Pawlenty would be a great President.
Or Perry, or Bachman, or Romney, ir Cain. Heck, even Huntsman would be a
great improvement.; And so would Palin, or Gingrich, or even my pet dog.
The effect of religion on politics at large is a problem. As for republicans,
it's nice to see them suffer for it.
What was once a good Republican Party is dead. A gracious person has no chance
to be elected.
Again, the DNews uses religion in a bait-and-switch to lure readers.One obscure reference with a hyperlink doesn't justify the title of this
article. How about something along the lines of "Pawlenty struggling to
fend off Bachman."It's always nice when the title is indicative
of what's actually in the article.
I find it rather humorous (in a very sad way) that the same people who fear and
rail against "Sharia Law" are the same people who want a "fire
and brimstone" preacher type to be President of the US.Do you
not understand that once you open the door to laws being based on religion,
whichever religion is in power gets to pass the laws?
i have said it before but it bears repeating---romney/bachmann as a ticket is
The Repubs already tried to turn Obama into Khomeini. It didn't work, but that
may not keep them from trying it again. As for Pawlenty, well, you've got to
have a candidate who's loud and mean in order to impress the good folks who
don't read much.
He is very passive and tries hard to be aggressive, but the last debate was not
very good for him, he wimped out. We already have a president that does that.
We need someone who will take the tiger by the tail and not just say things
about them when they are not looking them eye to eye. He would do well with the
social media, where he can be more bold that way.

Duke is looking to run as a Republican. Would he be better than Obama?

How stupid is this? He doesn't sound like an evangelical tent preacher? The
republican party has been hijacked by these nuts. We are electing a leader not a
preacher. No wonder Romney doesn't stand a chance. Maybe these folks want
Khomeni to come back to life and serve as the president.
