Romney Angry About Mormon Questions

posted by on August 6 at 9:40 AM

A slightly long but very interesting exchange, between Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and a conservative talk-radio host in Iowa who suggested that Romney’s actions are not in line with his Mormon faith.

My favorite part was when the host tried to get Romney on board with his kook ideology about the Supreme Court -- that since the Court "can't make laws", the President should just tell them to get stuffed whenever they do something he doesn't agree with. I think that's when Romney started to realize he wasn't in Massachusetts (or Planet Earth) anymore. Then the guy started telling him how Mormonism works. Jeez, what a dickhead.

Can someone summarize for those of us too lazy to listen to Mitt for 20 minutes?

The host sounds like Frank Shires. What a doosh.

I love when these hypocritical assholes play the God card when it suits them; then scream about their privacy being violated when the drift does not suit them.

Given that whack jobs like him are Republican primary voters, it's a miracle that the candidates can sound as moderate as they sometimes do.

All these YouTubes are starting me to make me think Romney is the most appealing serious Republican candidate, which is a bit like the straightest man on Capitol Hill, or safest resident of Baghdad.

Shit... is this going to be his Sister Souljah moment?

Fuck you, Mitt! When you run on a platform of policies based on your religious ideology and are catering to every religious nutcase for their votes, your beliefs are up for discussion.

The radio host advocates VIOLENCE when he disagrees with the interpretation of the law. A dangerous and nutty man indeed.

I was at Apple the other day when a guy who looked JUST LIKE Romney--wings, creepy good looks, tall-- was standing there. I nudged my husband, "hey look, it's Mitt Romney!" My husband, thinking it really was Romney, said, "Oh my god-let's kick his ass!"

@13 - i think he'd like that. It might loosen up his special underwear.

Does the radio host forget that Catholics who support choice or birth control are violating the "rules" of the church, and could possibly be excommunicated? The Host is an ass and Romney showed real patience and a level head.
