Mormon Tabernacle Liar?

From the Miami Herald:

Forget the national polls that show Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York, as the leading candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. A credible argument can be made that Mitt Romney is the front-runner.

If that’s the case, I thought we should find out a bit more about Willard (yes, that’s his real name 😆 ). I wanted to check up on that whole hunting thing. Mitt says he is a hunter from way back, but some have pooh-poohed that notion, notably Senator Harry Reid:

I’ve learned one thing in listening to all the debates and reading about all these people running for office, and the one fact I’ve learned, I can’t get out of my mind, is that Rudy Giuliani has been married more times than Mitt Romney’s been hunting.

Well sorry, Harry, but I have found evidence of Mitt’s hunting chops. Here is a picture of Little Mitt roughing it in the woods on a hunting trip with his dad, former Governor of Michigan, American Motors chairman, and all-round rich guy, George W. Romney. See? He’s just like the rest of us.

    Do statistics show that the majority of voters are in favor of killing animals who are just trying to hang around outside? Are the ride around in pickups and drink beer and shoot at whatever moves guys such a big voting block? Why do all these candidates want to come across as hunters? I had second thoughts about voting for Kerry when that vidio of his hunting trip came out during the election. For crying out loud! He is a decorated combat veteran, he doesn’t have to run around in the woods with an orange hat, to show that he is manly. Don’t get me wrong, I support the right to arm bears 100% but, the least important quality we need in a president is that he be a sport killer.

    fotc, it’s beyond me, too. i don’t understand the allure of a dead animal strapped to the hood of a car. what befuddles me even more is how it is still called hunting when birds are in cages and only let go when there are rifles pointing at them. of course, there are obstacles, such as an old man’s face, that one must overcome in order to kill the birdies, but i still don’t think that it is quite sporting.

    I am sure there is a story in there somewhere, but it just doesn’t jump out. Please explain why a kid’s woodland experience is relavant to anything? As I understand the original Romney hunting story was about shooting varmits in Idaho. And inserting Oil Can Harry into this is just beyond me. So please, if you want to bash Mormon’s just do so. Put your tin foil hat on, sit at the keyboard and whack away. But leave rat killing out of it.

    Hey Jack,
    Jump back. Where are you seeing Mormon bashing in this?

  5. nonnie9999

    i did not bash mormons. i bashed one guy who happens to be a mormon and who is constantly telling us how righteous he is. of course, his righteousness includes wishing for the doubling in size of gitmo, extolling the virtues of a war that was a mistake from the very beginning, and blathering on about how he supports the troops, but never pushed any of his 5 healthy sons to enlist and go fight in iraq. if he can’t even tell the truth about hunting, then i don’t trust him to tell the truth about anything else either. so i will adjust my tinfoil hat to the proper jaunty angle, sit at my keyboard, and whack away. if you don’t like it, then i suggest you find a blog that is more in line with your sensibilities. oh, and just for the record, “oil can harry” is a mormon, and i am not bashing him.

    Would you have mentioned this character’s religion if he had been a Catholic? I think not. The only reason to mention Mormon then is to associate the church with someone you find unacceptable — ergo, Mormon bashing. Please move on and don’t do it again.

  7. nonnie9999

    you’re damned right i would mention anyone’s religion if s/he keeps throwing it into our faces as one of the reason for voting for her/him. i don’t like hypocrites, whether they are mormon, catholic, jewish, muslim, wiccan, etc.. give me a candidate who has real integrity, not one who thinks calling her/himself religious, no matter what the religion, gives her/him a pass in the honesty category. i will take intelligence and compassion displayed in real life action over bible thumping and rhetoric anyday.

    Do you need a nap?

    “Please move on”, “don’t do it again”, “do you need a nap?”, Are you the boss of the whole wide world or just this blog ? Authoritarian horse shit has a place, it belongs on the boot scraper.
