Carol Platt Liebau: What's the Surprise?

What's the Surprise?

This article reports as news the fact that not every Republican Mormon in Congress has pledged support to Mitt Romney.

How silly. Has every Catholic politician pledged fealty to Rudy Giuliani? Did every Jewish Democrat endorse Joe Lieberman?

The fact is that the Romney campaign isn't about the candidate's religious faith. Why should anyone, then, automatically expect that he's entitled to -- or will necessarily receive -- the support of people just because they're coreligionists?

This is bizzare as the Deseret News is owned by the LDS. But, not all surprizing as even an LDS newspaper can buy into the DDBMSM on the whole "Mormon question." I am not a Mormon, but I support Romney because of all the Republican presidential candidates, he comes the closest to how I hope a Republican president can govern. And, unlike the rest, he has a consistant, positive message a la Ronald Reagan.
