Under the guise "JFK had to explain his Catholicism" and that he wouldn't be taking orders from Rome...the MSM will do all it can to reelect their messiah.
I don't think it's a coincidence that from the beginning of the GOP primary season Leftie pundits were all saying Huntsman or Romney would be the best candidate for the GOP to run.
Just a few examples:
Dana Milbank White Horse Prophecy
Will Mormons’ racial history be a problem for Mitt Romney?
Yes, the Romneys Converted Mitt’s Dead Atheist Father-in-Law to Mormonism
And the truth:
Brace Yourself for the Anti-Mormon Slime Machine
Obama's minions within the MSM want him reelected and believe they can suppress right-wing votes pointing out how bizarre Mormonism is compared to traditional Christian sects of Christianity.
The bottom line is Romney won't beat Obama since many won't vote for Mitt and he has an unfavorable of 2 to 1 with Independents. The White Horse Prophecy is not only going to scare away Christians but atheist who see all religions as cults as electing Romney would seemingly give credence to Joseph Smith's WH prophecy which is just too bizarre for many people religious or not.
The Left has years and years of video and soundbites to hammer Romney on WH...because of those on the right saying the Constitution is hanging by a thread and such.
In short Romney is the empty bucket candidate and w/o a motivated base Independents don't decide elections. Romney is a man standing in a bucket trying to pick himself up by the handle.
Many in the base recognize this fact and see the GOP establishment as a bunch of sellouts and know Romney has spread the money around. Good luck with that establishment....its an imbecilic strategy at best and moronic at worst to believe the Republican nominee don't have to motivate base because the Democrat will.
