Mitt Romney 2008 - Can a Mormon be president?


Registered Member
I think Mitt Romney may be the next U.S. president. He was the Republican governor from Massachusetts. He is a Mormon. There has never been a Mormon president. Can Romney be the first? He has filed with the Federal Election Commission, allowing him to raise money for the 2008 Republican nomination.

Willard Mitt Romney was born March 12, 1947 in Detroit. He is the son of George Romney, a 1968 presidential candidate. He and his wife, Ann, have 5 sons. Ann has multiple sclerosis.

Romney has a B.A. from Brigham Young University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He co-founded Bain Capital, an equity investment firm, and made a fortune, helping to start Staples office-supply.

He ran for the U.S. Senate in 1994 but lost to Ted Kennedy. He was elected governor of Massachusetts in 2002 and served a four-year term. Romney has conservative values, a Republican governor in a liberal state.

With veterans returning from Iraq, there need to be adequate benefits and health care. Romney supports veterans. He was the first Massachusettes governor to appoint a secretary of veterans' affairs. He developed the Welcome Home Bill which gave National Guardsmen free tuition at Massachusetts universities.

12 million illegal immigrants have poured into the United States from Mexico. Romney is tough on illegals. He made an agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement which allowed Massachusetts State troopers to arrest and deport.

He supports alternative energy such as ethanol and nuclear and is for drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

Romney is pro-life. He opposes Roe v. Wade. He is against abortion except in cases of rape, incest or when the mother's life is threatened. 46 million babies have been aborted since 1973 in what amounts to an American Holocaust.

He supports the death penalty in cases which include terrorism and multiple killings.

Same-sex marriage has been an improbable issue in recent years. Romney believes that marriage is a union between a man and a woman. He opposes same-sex marriage and civil unions.

Hmm, quite interesting. I haven't done much research on potential candidates for the next election however I don't think him being a Mormon should matter.

It will certainly be interesting to see how things play out, but at this point I think Hillary Clinton is one of the major players for the Democratic party. I'm not a fan of her at all though, but this election could come down to one of two things. The first Mormon president, or the first woman president. Quite interesting turn of events.

Personally I don't think Hillary has enough support to pull it off.
