I've never understood why you hate him more than Jon Stewart. It makes no sense.

Judge rejects Perry, GOP hopefuls for Va. ballot
Quote:
U.S. District Judge John Gibney said in his ruling that Perry
-- along with GOP candidates Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum
who joined in the Texas governor's lawsuit -- waited too long to file
the complaint against the state's ballot requirements.

"They knew the rules in Virginia many months ago.
... In essence, they played the game, lost, and then complained that the rules were unfair,"
Gibney wrote.

Virginia is one of the big prizes among the primaries
being held March 6, on what is known as Super Tuesday.
And besides all that:
How can Obama lose with support like this...

in support of President Obama.

BUT, BUT, BUT...
Just before that goof, McCain called the "Citizens United" decision
the "worst decision of the Supreme Court ... ever ! "
That was the first time I agreed with McCain in a very long time.

I think the last time was when he picked Palin as VP candidate
... that decision helped cost him the election !

Oh well, McCain's time is past.

The part you left off is the majority of Obama supporters can't afford a $45 T-shirt and she is only donating 1$ to Obama for every shirt sold, she is keeping the rest. She supports wealth redistribution....

The meeting in Texas is now public, and Santorum gets the nod from the religious leaders.

Santorum Wins Backing of U.S. Religious Leaders Before Primary
Quote:
Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Rick Santorum won the backing of a group of national religious leaders
who pushed for social conservatives to coalesce behind a single Republican presidential candidate
before the South Carolina primary.<snip>

At a gathering of religious leaders at a ranch near Bleiblerville, Texas,
Santorum received 85 of 114 votes on the third ballot,
defeating former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich,
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told reporters
on a conference call today.<snip>

Organizers included Gary Bauer, president of American Values in Washington,
and Donald Wildmon, founder of the American Family Association of Tupelo, Mississippi,
Perkins said. Also attending was Richard Land, president of the Nashville, Tennessee-based
Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Perkins declined to name others present at the event, held yesterday and today
at a ranch owned by H. Paul Pressler, a Houston attorney and former Texas Appeals Court judge.
Perkins described the group as “conservative leaders, businessmen and political activists.”<snip>

A group supporting Santorum’s campaign began airing a commercial
that promotes his opposition to abortion and radical Islam.
The ad, sponsored by Red White and Blue Fund, doesn’t mention
any of Santorum’s Republican opponents.<snip>
And besides all that:

The "Christians" are really afraid that if Romney is elected,
the LDS will gain a bigger market share of the missionary marketplace.

The Theological Differences Behind Evangelical Unease With Romney
Quote:
The Rev. R. Philip Roberts, the president of a Southern Baptist seminary in Kansas City, Mo., is an evangelist with a particular goal: countering Mormon beliefs.<snip>

On the most fundamental issue, traditional Christians believe in the Trinity:
that God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit all rolled into one.

Mormons reject this as a non-biblical creed that emerged in the fourth and fifth centuries.
They believe that God the Father and Jesus are separate physical beings,
that God has a wife whom they call Heavenly Mother, and that God and Jesus once dwelt on earth as men.<snip>

Many evangelicals have numerous reasons, other than religion, for objecting to Mr. Romney.
But to understand just how hard it is for some to coalesce around his candidacy,
it is important to understand the gravity of their theological qualms.

“I don’t have any concerns about Mitt Romney using his position as either
a candidate or as president of the United States to push Mormonism,” said Mr. Roberts, an author of
“Mormonism Unmasked” and president of the Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary,
who said he had no plans to travel to South Carolina before the voting.
The concern among evangelicals is that the Mormon Church will use his position
around the world as a calling card for legitimizing their church and proselytizing people.

For those who do have a dog in this fight, please remember to pick up after them.... if that's too nasty to contemplate, perhaps you should reconsider...
