    Whew. I saw the first couple of minutes of that. It’s intense. I’ll have to grab some popcorn for the rest. His intensity doesn’t bother me, but it is rather shocking to see such animation from a politician these days. Isn’t it?

  2. Andy says:

    I agree with Jacob. His conviction was still coupled with clear diction, sincerity, and a fair amount of politeness.

    1. Bill says:

      Yes he was, which is why He fulfilled the prophecies of Jewish scripture, and why Jewish scripture is the Old Testament. However He was also the Jewish Messiah who was mostly rejected by His own people. Hence why Christianity is the progression of the Jewish faith, because the Messiah came and brought further messages from God (ie the New Testament).

    Not sure whether it makes a difference, but this clip was from over 4 years ago. This isn’t something that happened recently. Again, I’m not sure it makes a difference, but I’m just point it out.

    This is the first peek into what makes the guy tick. I wanted to say “woah, woah…settle down dude!” but then I don’t know what happened earlier in the broadcast. Though he said he never wavered on his position on the right to choose, that’s a lie.

    He still scares me. Anyone else keep expecting to hear that ominous movie music like in those slasher films right before someone gets killed?

    1. John says:

      No, but I’m sure all those persons out there looking for a reason to be offended (Obama voters) will hear that music now that you’ve planted the suggestion in their heads. You’re scared by what you’re told to be scared of because you don’t think for yourself, and you don’t think critically, just sheepishly.

      1. Greengitters says:

        John, what are you basing that on? You mean, we read the news and watch the interviews and debates, like you do, I’m sure, but when we come away with opinions, we’re being sheep, but when you do, you’re thinking critically? Everyone who agrees with you are individuals and everyone who disagrees are sheep?

        You don’t see blanket statements like that are offensive and idiotic. We can disagree and still respect that the other has intelligent and thoughtful opinions. But you do yourself a disservice by adopting a biased opinion against a group, and then painting them all with the same brush.

        John, is everyone who dislikes Romney automatically an “Obama voter”? I am not voting for Obama but I am also not voting for Romney. Maybe there is more to the discussion that “Yer eder fer me or agin’ me!”.

  5. Andrew says:

    Mitt Romney is the cause of the meningitis outbreak, Hurricane Sandy, Nazi Germany, and the meteor that made the dinosaurs extinct. He wants every woman in America to be eradicated and wants all non Mormons to transferred to Utah for indoctrination.

    Don’t believe me? Read it yourself from MoveOn.org, Christ Matthews, Michael Moore, or George Stephanopoulus. They all are, afterall, extremely credible sources.

    Also, you need to vote Obama or something about old people haunting us while you fornicate will happen.

    1. Mary says:

      Oh, please… I’ve never read anything like that. I know you’re trying to make a point by exaggerating, but it isn’t working; it just sounds like you’re a nutjob.

      1. Andrew says:

        lol….have you ever been to moveon.org? maybe I was exaggerating about Nazi Germany, and the meteor, but:

        -Moveon.org does have the commercial with the old people talking about watching Romney voters having sex after they die. Lots of expletives too.
        -Chris Unger wrote a story putting blame of the meningitis outbreak on Romney.
        -Al Gore has blamed Hurricane Sandy on Romney-like policies. (no hurricanes before man-made pollution?)

        So, Mary, if you think I sound like a nutjob, then you would really think the people who aren’t joking when they say this stuff are. And they are usually pro-Obama.

        Just because you’ve never read anything like that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

  6. Matt says:

    It’s really quite a telling moment when you realize that a man of conviction, who simply has the fortitude and self-assurance to stand up for himself, his views, and his faith, can be so threatening to some people. If you are scared of this, or “hear scary music” when you watch it, then that is not a reflection of Governer Romney. I would hazard a guess that it has more to do with the so called “men” you surround yourself with daily. America is severely lacking in true male-ism. I, for one, find this very refreshing, and inspiring.

    1. Corrie says:

      I agree with you on the lack of men in American. Paul Washer, a really good preacher, said if a man-eating lion came to America, it would starve to death. Pretty harsh, but true.

    1. Arthur Sido says:

      He said “stake president”, local mormon “churches” are organized into wards, so of like a parish, and a number of wards in a geographic area are called a “stake”, so being a stake president means overseeing a number of wards which are run by “bishops”
