So, rumor has it that a lot of Republican money is holding back hoping that a single center-right (think Romney or Jeb Bush) candidate will appear. Goodness knows they should have been writing checks the day after the mid-terms.
That’s the stuff of politics. Every serious source this blog has still says the chances of Romney running are practically non-existent, but that there is a great deal of pressure being applied in an effort to get him to change his mind, so most if this is speculative reporting at best. But apparently the speculation is really scaring the people that worked so hard to help Romney lose last time – you know, the hardcore “Christian” types that would rather have the nation-rending, America weakening, violence tolerant administration we currently enjoy over having a *shudder* Mormon in the White House.
I can tell because of this piece in the conservative Washington Times featuring at top a picture of the Salt Lake City LDS temple at sunset:
A Utah high-schooler who wanted to volunteer at a local Salt Lake City charity was told to go home — that she wasn’t allowed to wear pants
Oh wait, not really, they clarify a couple of paragraphs later:
She said officials asked her to change into a skirt — but instead, she left.
Ah – so she was not told to go home, she elected to go home. Fascinating, particularly when the headline, featuring the word “booted,” and the lede tell a very different story. Then they carry on about sexism and close the piece with this little snippet:
The Salt Lake City Tribune reported that Ms. Partridge’s group was formerly called the Women’s Endowment Committee, an affiliation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
God save us from ourselves. We’re going to, at a minimum, pick on an important and loyal party demographic over requiring ladies to wear skirts at a charity function!? I wish I had the time to do an inventory of all the messes Obama has and will make before he is out of office and all the messes that Hillary Clinton will make messier, not to mention the new ones she will create. This nation faces major issues and we’re worried about ladies skirts at a charity event?!
One can only assume this cheap shot, coming from the right, is coming because someone fears the Romney rumors.
Look, oppose Romney. His performance record in presidential runs is all the argument you need. Really, honestly, we need to get past this religion based stuff. It’s playing Obama’s game and it is unbecoming of decent Republicans and conservatives.
