Is Religion The Problem?

Sometimes you want someone to grab Romney by the lapels, shake him and scream “stop!”

The Washington Post reports:

DUBUQUE, Iowa — Facing a growing threat from conservative Mike Huckabee, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney said economic and security issues should trump abortion and social issues as Republican voters select their presidential nominee next year.

“I think Americans recognize that if you are comparing two people based on how long you’ve been pro-life maybe that should pale in comparison with how are you going to be able to strengthen the dollars, improve our economy, get better jobs for Americans. . . [and] end illegal immigration,” he said.

He also stated, “I have always said I would like to be in the top three finishers[in Iowa]”

You wonder if a greater self-awareness and restraint wouldn’t go a long way. Politicians are selling themselves but you shouldn’t feel like you’re being asked to buy a ginsu knife or a “pre-owned” car. Contrast that to the self-effacing McCain performance on MTV.
