America is prejudiced. Americans do not like Mormons, that must be the explanation for Barack Obama’s defeat of Mitt Romney.
Mormons are a cult. They have dozens of wives. They don’t drink coffee, beer or wine. Utah is cold in the winter, and Robert Redford lives there. I never liked Donny and Marie Osmond.
These are some of the excuses, with the words changed, if Obama had lost the election yesterday. “The black guy had his chance,” Tom the Mechanic, from upstate Iowa, stated as part of his explanation of voting Republican, after supporting Obama in 2008.
Of course, this is in jest, but the reality was, Mitt Romney didn’t click with America. Whether it was the prep school upbringing, never having a Budweiser at a football game, the religion that most of America looks at with some level of suspicion, or his lack of cajones in pouncing on Obama during the debate over the Libya coverup when Obama danced deftly around the question about embassy security.
He should have said, “Mr. President, can you just answer the damn question? We all know the ambassadors work hard, but can you please explain why he is now dead?”
America needs a new Ronald Reagan. One born in the 1960’s or 1970’s. We need a leader who came up through the ranks, who relied on student loans and hard work to pay for his or her education. 2016 will be wide open for new ideas to clean up the preceding eight years of moving toward socialism, taxes and debt.
