When can we expect to see Harry Reid as a guest on her Mormon-bashing show?

It is only fair and right that he enjoy the assult on his religion by what’s her name and her network.

In fact, I think we should all email Harry’s office to ask his views on the Mormon-bashing show.

Perhaps all the African American Dems in Congress should be re-introduced to Harry Reid, a Mormon and according to Andrea Mitchell, guilty by association of some kind of racism.

I'm merely pointing out that Romney, who's essentially been given a pass by the media, is now going to be chewed up and spit out by that same media.

But if you are suggesting that I'm going to relish this, that my preference is somehow Obama over Romney, then up yours.

Because Reid is such a nasty piece of work, folks forget that he is a Mormon.

Perhaps somebody should probe the racial makeup of Andrea Mitchell's Washington DC neighborhood. In one of the cities with the largest black populations, why did she choose to live there (according to this celebrity house pictures web site):

Of course, since no one likes Harry Reid, it’s hard to see how comparing Mitt Romney to him helps his case.

Considering Romney already had virtually an impossible challenge finding a way to define himself as a desirable presidential candidate, the fact that he and his surrogates will have to spend untold hours trying to “clear up” perceptions of Mormonism makes his task to win the presidency utterly impossible.

There’s still time to deny him the nomination. Newt just has to win a little over half of the delegates in the upcoming 20 states in order to deny Romney 1,144. There is only one shot to defeating Obama and that is making sure Romney does NOT win the nomination.

Yep it will be 7X24 on the MSM & networks!
Look for season 3 of Sister Wives.
"September Dawn (about the Mountain Meadow Massacre)" will be on network TV. Then there will be some talking heads to keep the buzz going about how it relates to today.
Look for a made for TV movie on the "Salamander Letter Murders".
Also probably some Rat prosecutor in the West will decide to go after some FLDS’ers and that will be in the news to put an exclamation point on these Mormon stories.

Sarcasm Mode On:

“Will Mitt running for president drive a stake into the heart of mormonism?”

I doubt that but it will have to survive in other countries because Mitt will drive a stake through the heart of America by giving us Obama for a second term and losing the House and giving more ground in the Senate. If he selects Graham as VP it will make things worse yet.

All too predictable. No blow is too low, no lie is too despicable, no unsourced rumor is too vague for Andrea and her ilk when it comes to doing the bidding of her progressive masters.

I’d wager Andrea has had little to say about the NBP dead-or-alive bounty posters or the rabble rousing rants of Sharpton and Jackson or the shouted “sermons” of Rev. Wright during either this election cycle or the last.

Nor do I think Andrea has spent much time examining Obama’s Moslem roots or opining on his infrequent appearances at any Christian, Protestant or Catholic church.

THE ROMNEY FAMILY
MORE IN LOVE WITH MONEY THAN AMERICA

GEORGE W. ROMNEY (Mitt’s Father) DODGED THE DRAFT ALL DURING WORLD WAR II.

MITT ROMNEY AND HIS BROTHER BOTH DODGED THE DRAFT FOR A DECADE DURING THE VIETNAM WAR.

NONE OF MITT’S FIVE SONS HAVE SERVED IN THE U.S. ARMED FORCES.

THEY ALL HAVE A LUST FOR MONEY NOT REAL SERVICE FOR THE COUNTRY!

IF MITT ROMNEY IS ELECTED PRESIDENT HE WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SEND OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS INTO COMBAT WHILE HE AND HIS FAMILY CONTINUE TO DO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE SINCE 1941—AVOID MILITARY SERVICE WHILE LIVING A LUXURIOUS LIFESTYLE.
(World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan: six wars fought by Americans and not one of the eight Romney men have served!)

Greenscam did more to rob Americans of their treasure than anyone in American history.

I’m hoping to see both of these traitors hanging side-by-side from lampposts.

John Adams to James Sullivan
on women, the poor, and voting rights

May 26, 1776

[Adams explains why women, children, and the poor are excluded from the vote. — TGW]

It is certain in theory, that the only moral foundation of government is the consent of the people. But to what an extent shall we carry this principle? Shall we say, that every individual of the community, old and young, male and female, as well as rich and poor, must consent, expressly, to every act of legislation? No, you will say. This is impossible. How then does the right arise in the majority to govern the minority, against their will? Whence arises the right of the men to govern women, without their consent? Whence the right of the old to bind the young, without theirs?

But let us first suppose, that the whole community of every age, rank, sex, and condition, has a right to vote. This community, is assembled—a motion is made and carried by a majority of one voice. The minority will not agree to this. Whence arises the right of the majority to govern, and the obligation of the minority to obey? from necessity, you will say, because there can be no other rule. But why exclude women? You will say, because their delicacy renders them unfit for practice and experience, in the great business of life, and the hardy enterprises of war, as well as the arduous cares of state. Besides, their attention is so much engaged with the necessary nurture of their children, that nature has made them fittest for domestic cares. And children have not judgment or will of their own. True. But will not these reasons apply to others? Is it not equally true, that men in general in every society, who are wholly destitute of property, are also too little acquainted with public affairs to form a right judgment, and too dependent upon other men to have a will of their own? If this is a fact, if you give to every man, who has no property, a vote, will you not make a fine encouraging provision for corruption by your fundamental law? Such is the frailty of the human heart, that very few men, who have no property, have any judgment of their own. They talk and vote as they are directed by some man of property, who has attached their minds to his interest…

I should think that wisdom and policy would dictate in these times, to be very cautious of making alterations. Our people have never been very rigid in scrutinizing into the qualifications of voters, and I presume they will not now begin to be so. But I would not advise them to make any alteration in the laws, at present, respecting the qualifications of voters.

Your idea, that those laws, which affect the lives and personal liberty of all, or which inflict corporal punishment, affect those, who are not qualified to vote, as well as those who are, is just. But, so they do women, as well as men, children as well as adults. What reason should there be, for excluding a man of twenty years, Eleven months and twenty-seven days old, from a vote when you admit one, who is twenty one? The reason is, you must fix upon some period in life, when the understanding and will of men in general is fit to be trusted by the public. Will not the same reason justify the state in fixing upon some certain quantity of property, as a qualification.

The same reasoning, which will induce you to admit all men, who have no property, to vote, with those who have, for those laws, which affect the person will prove that you ought to admit women and children: for generally speaking, women and children, have as good judgment, and as independent minds as those men who are wholly destitute of property: these last being to all intents and purposes as much dependent upon others, who will please to feed, clothe, and employ them, as women are upon their husbands, or children on their parents…

Society can be governed only by general rules. Government cannot accommodate itself to every particular case, as it happens, nor to the circumstances of particular persons. It must establish general, comprehensive regulations for cases and persons. The only question is, which general rule, will accommodate most cases and most persons.

Depend upon it, sir, it is dangerous to open so fruitful a source of controversy and altercation, as would be opened by attempting to alter the qualifications of voters. There will be no end of it. New claims will arise. Women will demand a vote. Lads from 12 to 21 will think their rights not enough attended to, and every man, who has not a farthing, will demand an equal voice with any other in all acts of state. It tends to confound and destroy all distinctions, and prostrate all ranks, to one common level.

That’s true. And rightfully so. We had no business nominating someone whose “religion” is so un-mainstream. Every goofy aspect of it will be in the limelight for months now. It’ll be the reason for Hussein’s second term; the GOP will have handed it to him on a silver platter. We’re pathetic.
