Mitt Romney show off his amazing ability to speak out of both sides of his ass

OK, the preacher and current peckerhead Mike Huckapoo ‘apologized’ for his ‘devil’ comment about Mormons with the GOP SOP line – I was misunderstood.

Huckapoo said he was sorry, stating that it was just an innocent question blurted out during a lengthy conversation and (are you ready) was shocked to see it taken out of context.

In other words, the devil made him do it.

Here is what he said to the The New York Times. Huckapoo, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, asks, “Don’t Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?

Romney, who was on the Today Show on Wednesday, declined to answer that question during his interview, only saying church leaders in Salt Lake City had already addressed the topic. He further went on the say “But I think attacking someone’s religion is really going too far. It’s just not the American way, and I think people will reject that.”

Asked if he believed Huckapoo was speaking in a coded language to evangelicals, Romney praised his rival as a “good man trying to do the best he can,” but he added, “I don’t believe that the people of this country are going to choose a person based on their faith and what church they go to.” [the word choose is critical here]

OH REALLY MITTENS ?????????????????
So what exactly would you call this choice

When asked about putting a Muslim in his presidential Cabinet at a fund raising event in November, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said that he “cannot see that a Cabinet position would be justified based on the percentage of Muslims in the U.S.” This question was asked by a businessman of Islamic origin.

In response to Romney’s boner of an answer, Kevin Madden, Romney’s national press diarrhea-spewer, told Politico: “At this point, we’re not focused on what Gov. Romney’s Cabinet might look like. But the governor does not believe that in order to effectively fight radical jihad you need to have Muslims serving in the Cabinet.” Open mouth insert foot deeper.

So Huckaoo is attacking your religion, but saying Muslims don’t belong in your cabinet because they represent a small percentage isn’t an ‘attack’ (we really KNOW exactly what you are saying — Mitt you are speaking in Coded language to the evangelicals that you don’t want brown people or terrorist spies in your cabinet). Lets take a closer look at that claim Mittens:

  1. Estimates show there are approximately 7 million Muslims in the U.S. compared with 5.5 million members claimed by the LDS (Mormon) Church. Using the Ken-doll logic — why should a rat like you Willard Mitt be president before a Muslim?
  2. Also lets venture back to 1969, when Richard Nixon, that famous bleeding-heart liberal, named Mitten’s own father, George Romney as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. 38 years ago, the LDS Church had approximately 2.8 million members or just under 2% of the population. Being there are way less than 50 cabinet posts, it seems unfair (according to sonny boy’s logic) that his dad should have taken a post that would have better served by a member of a more numerous religion.

Mitt you are the Singing Asshole from Pink Flamingos but since i couldn’t find that pic, you can just be the egg man

  1. Aside from all the very serious and important points you make here – and there are not shortage of them…I am fixated on the brand of shirt I most coveted in my senior year of high school.

  2. All that aside, I read something today that said that a church scholar established that under the Mormon dogma (or whatever) Lucifer is a son of god. Obviously a son gone bad, but still. so the Huck wasn’t necessarily throwing mud. That said, the fact that I am even thinking about this bullshit is appalling. Great post, DCap.

  3. I love “Pink Flamingos.” I loathe Mitt and Huck. Thanks for doing a post about both.

  4. Are the Mormons in cahoots with the Bilderberg Group, what’s up with THAT?? Just kidding, I really don’t know anything about Mormons except I’ve heard if you are a Mormon and live in Salt Lake City you’ll never have a problem finding a job.HUH? heehee.

  5. I recently went to a mormon site to find out what the religion is all about. Man, I thought there was some funky stuff in Christian religion, but the mormons may have them beat.So are we electing a preacher or a president? That answer seems to have gotten lost in the muck.I would hate to be a republican right now. Hell of a choice they have, isn’t it? I could live with any of the Dems candidates if they became president, but goddess help us if one of the Repub bible thumpers goes to the oval office.

  6. I’m fascinated that Mike Huckabee, with his terrible record in Arkansas, could rise to the top of the popularity polls amongst dipshit Republicans.Apparently, after George W. Bush, the bar is so low for the rightwingers, that they actually see Huckabee as a step up from Bush.But then, who would’ve ever thought Hillary Clinton, a wholly owned subsidiary of AIPAC and the military, industrial complex, and a political hawk in the Cheney mode, could be the Democratic front runner?

  7. Maybe he meant A devil as opposed to THE devil who currently resides in the veep’s office. Oh, Bush, you’re so Divine. I think Barney left a present for you. You know what to do.

  8. Dcap, gosh, I love it when you get all mathy.

  9. This is a great post..as always, of course. I love it when someone points out the absolute hypocrisy of this crowd. I wonder if they take a “Hypocritic” Oath when they run for office?The picture of the fat lady eating eggs? Gross. I’ll never eat another egg again without thinking of that picture. Thanks for ruining Easter for me. 😉

  10. Um, Nixon was a “bleeding-heart liberal” in 1969. Or ever?I must have missed something..

  11. But, between you and me, since Mr. Nixon has since passed away, I feel I can finally come clean: When I was a teenager, I was at a party and we were all playing “Seven minutes in heaven”. Well, who did I get paired-up with, none other than the old Dickster himself. Yes, not even Pat knew. He was a great kisser, btw. Of course, he seemed to have a problem controlling his hands….

  12. .. not that I minded, of course.

  13. OMG

  14. Christopher: She ain’t the front runner anymore. I really think she’s on the ropes. And yes, that makes me happy.
