Mitt Romney is testing out a new stump speech and pulling things right out of the air by suggesting Obama is anti-God. Watch as Romney suggests President Obama is considering taking the word 'God' off American coins -- an allegation he has apparently pulled right out of thin air.
Keep it up Robme. This kind of talk turns off independent voters. The people in the background are right-wing, low-information voters who would never vote for Obama anyway. Independents who are still trying to decide whom to vote for will be turned off by this kind of ridiculous claim; so keep it up Robme.
P.S. I could care less about Robme's religion; he could be a Muslim and I still wouldn't care. (This is a joke, there is nothing wrong with being a Muslim.)

I want to reply to the GOP and their endless lies, and the lies of Newt Gingrich in particular. Hey! GOP! It sure is funny, how all of a sudden you find some admiration for former President Clinton. You could have fooled me the way you hated him when he was in office, and couldn't wait to impeach him, to get rid of him, and how you have hated his wife Hillary over the years, since Arkansas! You called him, too, every name in the book also, but because he isn't black, you tolerated him. Now, you try to turn Clinton's convention speech around, and try to make it something that it isn't, for instance, trying to lie, and make it out to be raving against Obama. Bill Clinton is a loyal Democrat, and couldn't be more in line with the President. Of course, there are differences.
Take a look at your own party, for example. It does not resemble the former party at all. In fact, you forced people out of it, because you turned against all your own policies, and beliefs, and those of all the Republicans, you came before you, all the Good Republicans, and there were many. Take a look at the two Senators, for example, who were forced out, along with Olympia Snowe, who is quitting the Senate, because in her own words, and I quote," I can't do this anymore".
You now, have the nerve to try to put into people's minds what you think Clinton was saying, and not what he really was saying! How dare you!!!!! How dare You!!!! How dare You!!!!!! Liar, Liar, your pants are on fire!!!!

I forgot to end with something. Here is a bit of information that I bet you all, didn't know. Idaho has more Mormons per capita than Utah, does. That simply means there are more Mormons, in Idaho than in Utah. Idaho, history, says that in the early days, after, Mormons, began, their, trek West, from places like Michigan, they landed in what is today, Boise, the city of Trees. Many of them just stayed there, instead of moving on, to other places.Many of them went on to Eastern Idaho too, close enough, to the Utah border. There is a school in Rexburg, Idaho , in Eastern Idaho not far from the Utah border. This school, used to be called Ricks College, and Now it was re- named,five or six years ago, to BYU-Idaho! There is a little bit of info-I bet none of you knew!

Shame on you Robme! He knows full well, that he didn't get that big bounce that they were counting on after the Convention, so now they will go back to the ant-Obama, crap. Robme-why don't you tell the country what the Mormons really believe when it comes to Jesus. I can and will tell you. I, know, after being raised in Idaho one of the big Mormon States. They believe that God- or Jesus, was nothing more than a great prophet. Joseph Smith was held in higher esteem than Jesus, according to Mormons! And those are the facts. Being a Mormon, he doesn't know of fully understand how some other religions view God, and is just trying to get back in good with the righties. So much for talking about the economy, but when they talk about the economy they only lie anyway! Right-Senator-Rand Paul-Ky? Liar, Liar, your pants are on fire.

You know it’s not all Romney when he starts up this anti-God rhetoric. If there weren’t fundamentalist people ready and willing to buy into the lie, he couldn’t sell them anything. After the Dems convention bounce and their anti-bounce, they started looking around for a game changer. Nothing gets simple country blood boiling like the idea that the president is anti-God. It doesn’t have to have a shred of truth. It just has to be stated outright by the right; the party of people who in their crazy world are the truly “Good Christian” people. I am a Christian and my Bible teaches me that we are supposed to look after each other. Republican Christianity is FAKE and I am offended by it.
To naive Christians, the Democratic party represents, at a minimum, a sinful group because they support Gay rights, Women’s rights, and poor Black’s who they still see as primitives. This fringe group will believe anything you say about Obama or any Democratic leader because he is a member of a party that they believe is ruining the country. What these politically unschooled people don’t realize is that they are being used and mocked by the party they are supporting.
The Republican leadership could care less about God, Christians, or middle class except for their votes and tax revenue. Beyond that, they have no use for us. The first thing they do when they get the Whitehouse is start up a war somewhere. It doesn’t have to be a huge one. It’s just a way to turn the US Treasury into their personal ATM machine because wars cost billions and there’s very little accountability. They don’t have to worry about any personal cost because their kids will never have to fight the battles. They’re just killing off a bunch of poor kids which helps to lower the unemployment numbers while they and their friends bilk the taxpayers and go off sailing on their yachts.
Democrats have not done their job of getting out the truth. This is why we have two parties. We’re supposed to teach each other. When I first started getting interested in politics, it was very hard to understand what was going on and who to believe. One day my uncle said “Follow the Money” and all politics started to make sense to me.
The fact that Romney is doing the anti-God thing means he knows he’s lost the election. This is 2008 Sarah Palin all over. He’s pulling out the crazy because there is NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE. What we need to do is simply keep doing what we’ve been doing only more and better and really focus locally. If we don’t give Obama his Democrat congress, the next four will still be productive, but not as much so. There is no need to get mad. Just speak the truth and keep saying it. It’s seems like people would already know these things, but surprisingly, many people don’t even watch the news at night.
Especially the 20 something vote. They are hard to motivate because they expect results too fast and when they don’t get them quickly lose interest. When you’re 20 there are so many more interesting things to do than vote, but few as important. Friends and fun will not be as much fun when you have cancer from fracking chemicals in your drinking water and after they ruin your health forget about going to the doctor. We can’t afford to cover all our citizens. We need that money for tax breaks for the rich, wars, and yachts. It’s up to you. What kind of a world do you want to live in? I want a world where we have each other’s backs and we all help each other.

I may be wrong. It's been a while since I studied the Constitution. But I believe I read some where in it, separation of church and state. I think Romney needs to get God out of politics. All he's trying to do is capture the religious right, white folks. And of course spread more of his hate President Obama lies. Even if I believed Mormonism were a true religion, which I don't, as far as I'm concerned, he's showing his blasphamy against God. But his hateful audiances will applaud anything he says against President Obama. The right just can't handle a Black man in the White House. I've heard more than one say, "that black SOB has no business in the White House. It's for Wheit men." I also took that as "no women". Can't wait to have a woman as President.

Do ya think these people were paid to show up and applaud this junk. The man's a Mormon! His God and Jesus are different from the God these folks hold so dear.. unless they are Mormons too. There are quite a few of them. Enough to give Rmoney a crowd.
Oh, by the way, don't ask Ann about God. She only talks about the economy.
