    m.g. scott:

    The 4% unemployment rate was during the Clinton years. Bush INHERITED the 4% rate but quickly ushered in the 7% unemployment rate by the 4th quarter of 2001. When Obama took office in January 2009, the unemployment rate was 10%.

    But yes, gas prices was between $2-3/gal during the Bush's first term. But by 2007, gas prices were inching up to just short of $4. It didn't drop back down to $3 until right before the 2008 elections.

    Funny... Utah Republicans were soooo worried about what the Democrats would say about Mormonism. And it was the radicals in their own party that slammed away.

    @ m.g. Scott:

    You forget when this nasty recession began and why. Love to go back to Bush? Only conservatives with no memories would join you.

    @Vanka I agree with one thing about your post. It is simple. For a person who hates Mormonism, you chose an interesting place to reside- Provo, Utah. Good luck with that.

    What I like about your comment is that it implies that "faith without works, is dead". Some in the religious commununity might not agree with that principle.

    Point of interest you might like to know about. There is this guy named Barak Obama who is the current President of the United States. He has about 3 times as many truth twisters and outright lies as you accuse Mitt Romney of having, and he has achieved most of that in the last 8 years while a Senator and President. Plus he has made the country worse in every way economically from when he got the job. I'd love to go back to the Bush years of 4% unemployment 4% GDP 3$ gas prices, ect. The good old days.

    simple math: "I hate Barack Obama more than I love Jesus."

    I have my own simple math: "I hate Mitt Romney and his Mormonism more than I love Jesus, Bigfoot, Leprechauns, or any number of other fictions."

    If there's supposed to be a separation between church and state you can't see it for some of these bigoted people. As Stewart says, they will take one concept of a religion and carve it up and claim all church members are soiled because of it. Take care how they judge others. If we looked at their "religion" (like Bill Maher) they'd have a hard time justifying their beliefs. Probably their chief belief is taking pot shots and condeming others.

    @ My2Cents: So, those "Christian" values you claim to espouse don't include true love for your neighbor of the kind Christ exhibited and urged his followers to have? You don't believe the Constitution applies to all Americans - only certain Americans who meet your approval.

    Great way to validate the teachings of the Founding Fathers.

    A cursory fact-check on Romney will show that he's not above twisting the truth, or telling outright lies. That is the problem, not that he's Mormon. Oh, and the fact that he would be a huge step backward in the Bush direction.

    Our nation has suffered enough!

    What comes out of religion is core beliefs and values and every religion and government sets its own values according to their beliefs. This country and its doctrine are christian without socialism as its core values and beliefs. These other ideas and faiths that are non christian are the ones having a problem dealing with rights and our christian based constitutional law and order. They are the outsiders and the ones who must change and adapt and assimilate to christian standards of law or they will never become americans. To call your self an American you must change as centuries of immigrants have done for 200 years to make the country the power it should be.

    For this reason and rule of law and government our leaders must be christian and believe in this country. This is Obama's curse, his Muslim core training blocks his acceptance of christian values and beliefs as he has demonstrated.

    Romney is a christian but his core values and beliefs are hard core Socialism of a Mormon. Mormon's (Socialism) fears prosperity, independence, and being self sufficient not needing the church or government to supply them with goods and services.

    Haven't seen it, but now surely will make sure I watch that episode. Glad to see people on the left attacking their own for unreasonable comments. I would like to see the other side do likewise. It isn't so much what church one goes to, but more what they do with that faith in their daily lives. Believing in the true nature of God is a pointless activity if it doesn't result in behavior matches the teachings.
