In what may be the understatement of the year, Mitt Romney admitted to POLITICO that, “I don’t think everyone likes me.” Of course, his take on the problem is that it’s all Obama’s fault. “What has been the focus of the Obama ads? Do they talk about my record in Massachusetts? Do they talk about my policy? No, they’re all personal attack ads.”
The issue can’t be that he’s unlikeable because “I was voted the president of my fraternity [called Service Clubs at Brigham Young University]…you don’t get voted to be head of your group if you don’t get along with people, if you don’t connect with people.”
Okay. Even if that explains voters’ attitudes, what about all those Republicans in Tampa who’ve been left with nothing to do but watch the progress of Hurricane Isaac and air their grievances? The ones who are fighting back against a power grab by Romney, his legal team, and the party establishment that means to change the rules in order to squash dissent? According to the New York Times, both Ron Paul supporters and Tea Party activists are unhappy over the effort to silence them at the convention. Activist and Paul supporter Jeremy McReynolds is quoted as saying, “They want to make everyone think that we all are united behind Romney. That’s not true.”
Herman Cain spoke at a Sunday night rally to pump up the Tea Partiers. Even though he finally backed Romney in May, he told CBS Sunday that “If everyone had competed fairly and honestly, I’d probably be the nominee being nominated this week.” Hmm. Sour grapes much?...¨ HERE

REAL HERO/REAL LIFE: Bishop John Shelby Spong
“I was simply interpreting a rising consciousness,” he said. “Whether it was race or women or homosexual people, the issue was always the same: fighting against anything that dehumanizes a child of God on the basis of an external characteristic.” Bishop John Shelby Spong (click on his photo)
IT GETS BETTER--Archbishop Desmond Tutu supports LGBT full acceptance and inclusion too!
¨Churches say that the expression of love in a heterosexual monogamous relationship includes the physical, the touching, embracing, kissing, the genital act - the totality of our love makes each of us grow to become increasingly godlike and compassionate. If this is so for the heterosexual, what earthly reason have we to say that it is not the case with the homosexual?¨ Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
