I don’t get into politics much. You won’t often hear me debate them. But I have to say, some of the comments about Mitt Romney’s run for President have really cracked me up.
When Clinton was President and his whole affair with Monica Lewinski was discovered, he walked away pretty much unscathed. The general public opinion seemed to be – what he does in his spare time is none of our concern. Well, let’s look at the facts here – the affair took place in the Oval Office. He had the affair with a White House intern. That doesn’t sound like he was keeping his personal life and his Presidential life separate.
Now we’ve got a Mormon running for office and people from different religious factions are rising up to question his beliefs. Shouldn’t that fall under the “what he does in his spare time is none of our concern” policy? Let’s see – what do they do when they’re not on the clock? Clinton carries on with an intern. Romney will probably go to church (gasp) and say some prayers (gasp).
I’m not meaning to imply that Romney doesn’t have his weaknesses. I’m sure he has scads of them. But let’s get real here. The main objection to Romney running for President is the fact that he’s a Mormon. If the general public can simply forgive and forget what Clinton did, surely there’s room to overlook such a heinous crime as being Mormon.
