You keep carrying on about Mormonism as a CULT, but so what? I lived in Mesa, Arizona for years, which used to be a Mormon town and still has a large Mormon population. Yeah, their beliefs seem kind of weird, but they are among the best citizens on the planet -- sober, hardworking, public-spirited, productive, deeply decent people. What do you care what they do in their temple? None of their rituals carry over into their public life, and when they are in government, they govern as citizens, not as emissaries of their church. For people who strut their Christianity to allow Obama to destroy our country because they don't like Mormons' religion is sheer insanity. We will all suffer the rest of our lives for your narrow-minded foolishness.
In combing through the results of the 2012 election -- apparently finally complete, nearly two months after the fact -- I continue to find many similarities between 2012 and 2004, and one enormous difference.

Both of the elections involved incumbent presidents with approval ratings hovering around or just under 50 percent facing challengers who were rich men from Massachusetts (though one made his money and the other married it).

In both cases, the challenger and his campaign seemed confident he was going to win -- and had reasonable grounds to believe so.
