Hi my name is Mitt Romney.

I think that only material the church of latter days saints approve of should be seen on tv.

I will be sure to legislate my religion on the people of the United Church oh I mean States of America.

I really am conservative..... what I really am! Would a fake conservative has as nice hair as I do?

I'm Mitt Romney and the church approves this message.

Yes the reason kids go bad is because of TV and not bad parenting. What exactly can a president actually do to achieve anything he said in his commercial? Is he planning on repealing the 1st amendment? If parents want to keep stuff from their kids they should do it themselves....not expect the federal government to do it for them.

but for the GOP primary it is a good ad and I am sure will help him with the conservative base

I see ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and stupidity still runs rampant on this forum against the faith of a major Presidential candidate.

Grow up!

I count one (1) person in this thread who showed any kind of deliberate intolerance towards Romney's faith.

I never knew that a single person was capable of "running rampant" to such a degree.

Romney's very dangerous because he's a massively compelling and attractive personality.

Read my post.  I said forum, not thread.  

There are many derogatory and bigoted remarks on this forum aimed squarely at Romney's faith.

Aside from this, why do you support a candidate who's in such favor of the state inteveneing in your personal life.

Better yet, would you or ANY conservative like to give me a reasonable explanation as to how pornography actually damages kids?

Pornography?  What exactly is he going to do to stop that as a president?  Besides, parents get internet filters.  Even if it gets through once, maybe twice, seeing porn is not going to destroy a ten-year-old's life forever.

But this ad's going to appeal to who he wants it to appeal to:  the conservative Christian family who doesn't really bother to understand these issues, but is frightened of them anyway.

Meaningless and substanceless ad, designed to appeal to, well, idiots. I have 100% confidence that I'll still have the ability to go on the internets and download more porn than I could possibly ever watch during my lifetime if Mitt Romney is elected President.

Uh no actually I had stuff to do in real life before going back on the computer. I seem to recall you making some anti-black and anti-Brazilian statements on here in the past.

You have no reason to say that. To make such a dirty allegation over unspecific comments you "seem to recall" me making(that never happened) is beyond the pale. You had to go back in my posts to get the Brazilian thing from like a year ago I assume, and the post youre refering to is one where I said that Brazilian girls were easy. At the time I lived in Brazil and my girlfriend was Brazilian, as are a part of my family(through marriage), so don't try to backtrack and find justifications for your ridiculousness. There was nothing bigoted about it.

I would say that is pretty bigoted...much more than Poughies post. You said Brazilians (in general) were dumb as well.

Not what I meant.  Pretty much every voting bloc has some issues where most voters feel strongly and vaguely.  Conservative Christian voters probably mostly support limitations on pornography to some extent.  I'm sure it tested well among Romney's focus group members.  But few bother to understand the mechanics behind any such governmentally-enforced prevention.  If they did, they'd probably realize that this is a pretty empty promise on Romney's part.

I'm not blaming the voters for being undereducated (it's a complex, technical issue) or falling for pandering.  I'm not even blaming Romney for using a pipe dream issue.  It's just the nature of politics.

There's no voting bloc that is especially educated on this issue (maybe Ron Paul supporters)...it just happens to be that this voting bloc is the one that's most interested anyway.
