Is Washington Post starting to panic about a Romney victory?

    Two items:

    1) On their main page, http://www.washingtonpost.com/ they include the important story, "Bill Maher calls Mormonism a ‘cult’". Is Maher an intellectual heavy-weight of some importance, or just a hero to the radical left?

    2) Washington Post "Attacks Romney for 'Mormon Militia' Action 150 Years Ago". Yes, believe it or not. For analysis of the Washington Post revelation, http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/wapo-attacks-romney-mormon-militia-action-150-years-ago_645241.html
    For the original source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/mitt-romneys-mormon-faith-tangles-with-a-quirk-of-arkansas-history/2012/05/20/gIQAKHVFeU_print.html
    Romney’s candidacy has prompted some soul-searching in this area, where a historical group estimates that more than half the residents can trace their ancestry back to the wagon train.

    Maher is an outspoken atheist who did a documentary on religion in the US.

    And Mormonism is by definition a cult.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/cult

    Because Mormonism is so secretive, it's seen as more cultish than other religions.

    But given how excited you are about the Rev. Wright "revelations" this seems to be a bit hypocritical. icon_rolleyes.gif

    This is odd. I read all the links and I saw nothing about WaPo panicking. What I read was WaPo questioning Mormonism and a conservative writer defending both the religion and Mitt Romney.

    The original poster apparently has reading comprehension problems, but that's not surprising.

    Bringing it up and questioning it is to attack it in a subtle way. They could not attack more directly. See the analysis from Weekly Standard. They don't use words too big so you might be able to comprehend. hehe

    I read both. I see nothing indicating that the WaPo is panicking.

    Apparently you have trouble understanding big and little words.

    "Analysis from the Weekly Standard" is a contradiction in terms.

    The intent of the Washington Post is as clear now as it was when it ran the high school activity on page 1 above the fold. The liberals are panicking.

    Not at all. In fact, Fox's polls find Obama ahead and other polls are finding him within one point of Romney in places like Tennessee.

    The right-wing always accuses the Democrats of whatever is opposite of the truth.

    The number of posts from socal, riddler and SB confirms the gay conservative selfloathers are foaming at the mouth in panic contemplating Obamas 2nd term.

    It goes further than that. They always accuse liberals and Democrats of whatever THEY are themselves secretly doing and feeling.

    This explains how right-wing Republicans can on the one hand be criticizing Bill Clinton for an affair while having affairs themselves. How they can spew anti-gay rhetoric but be having gay hookups on the side. How they can accuse Obama of declaring a war on traditional marriage while being on their 5th wife.

    Republicans are total hypocrites and masters of projection. So when someone like socalfitness accuses liberals of being in a panic -- with no evidence at all -- what it really means "I'm really scared Obama is going to get re-elected."

    I'm not worried either way. It does not look good for either party, this is not a game and this is not a time for silly little children. Globally other countries with stronger economies than ours are hurting, we are deeply in debt and some major changes in big programs are right around the corner and I predict public outcries like we see daily in Greece, people do not like their social programs cut and they will be cut in this country.
    So, Romney or Obama, cuts will be made in the next four years and drastic changes will be made, like raising the retirement age to 70, and people are going to be outraged. I hate when people sink to football cheers for politicians when times are tough and the country is so deeply in debt.
    Serious times demand serious adults.

    SmartMoney says it well.

    "So, Romney or Obama, cuts will be made in the next four years and drastic changes will be made, like raising the retirement age to 70, and people are going to be outraged."

    SMART BUDGET CUTS must be made.....and these cuts MUST BE FAIR. And most importantly, we've got to use our leaner budget to invest in our future.

    and this:

    " I hate when people sink to football cheers for politicians when times are tough and the country is so deeply in debt."

    AMEN....and ...HELL YEAH !!!

    This begs the question: why would a newspaper panic? Has Romney signed a pledge to investigate newspapers or something?

    The "newspaper" might not panic, but the editors might, especially if they are far left liberals or socialists.

    How about adopting the 2005 budget? That was only 7 years ago. Surely we can manage to "scrape by" on that????


    How about multinational corporations pay taxes? Let's start there and work our way over to cuts. Then start with the military.

    What a pile of bull shit.
    More Republican lies.
    Don't you wing nuts ever have anything positive to say about YOUR candidate ?
    Of course not, because there's nothing positive to say.
    So, all you've got is a bunch of lies about liberals, Democrats, and our black President.

    We survived (barely) 8 years with Bush.
    You will survive 8 years with a black President.

    Most organized christian denominations are cults imo. The catholic church is the biggest one.

    Any entity that believes you must be "one of them" to be saved is pretty cultish to me.
