Religious prejudice isn’t Romney’s problem

Not a bad cartoon of Romney per se. However, if his Mormonism is a hurdle or barrier to be overcome, those doing the leaping will be the voters, not Romney.

Indeed, some voters prejudices will be too high a hurdle to overcome, thus preventing them from making the leap of faith in favor of a President who happens to be a faithful Mormon. That’s their problem, not Romney’s.

Isn’t Mitt Romney going to run against Senator John McCain of Arizona? Who is it that convinced the FBI to go out on a limb to go after a rough character and threat to the community as uncle Warren?
