Is America ready for a Mormon president?

WND’s own Aaron Klein asked listeners that pressing question this week, as Mitt Romney inches closer to winning the Republican nomination.
Klein talked to Dr. Robert Millet, professor at Brigham Young University and a member of the LDS church. Millet expressed his hope that American citizens would judge candidates on their platform and not their religious tradition, and Klein asked Millet to explain the Mormon belief in America as the “choice,” or promised, land and other tenets of the religion (FREE audio).
The GOP establishment-types were “shocked” by Rick Santorum’s three-state primary sweep, Limbaugh declared.
“The Republican establishment had no idea this was percolating out there. I can’t believe how insulated they are” (FREE audio).
Rush explained Santorum’s win by noting that he is “the last real conservative left” in the race (FREE audio).
“I’m a huge fan of Clint Eastwood, but he’s wrong,” Savage told listeners the day after the Hollywood legend’s controversial Super Bowl half-time commercial praising the auto bailout.
“There are a lot of lies in that ad,” said Savage. “For one thing, Obama bailed out Chrysler, and we’re told Chrysler repaid the loan. But … it was Fiat who made that $1.4-billion repayment of your tax dollars. This means the Obama administration gave $1.4 billion of your money to people in Italy.”
Michael Savage’s new non-fiction book, “Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama’s Dream of the Socialist States of America,” is coming out April 3, and can be pre-ordered now from WND’s SuperStore at a huge discount.
Hannity finds himself in the midst of an online feud with MSNBC host Ed Schulz. Hannity said that if Obama “had it his way,” Osama Bin Laden would still be alive, and that he could corroborate this claim with “video evidence.”
Schultz is challenging Hannity on Twitter to “show the tape” on his Fox News show, while dragging Bill O’Reilly into the battle after O’Reilly claimed that “MSNBC doesn’t deal in facts.”
Mark Levin launched a scathing attack on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Facebook, labeling the former Massachusetts governor “sleazy” and “poisonous.”
Levin addressed Romney directly: “Conservatives have had enough of your sleazy campaign tactics. Run on your record. Explain your conservative credentials. Tell us how you’ll save this country. If you have a core it is time to reveal it. But stop your poisonous attack dogs and ads.”
Back on the air, Mark Levin talked about possible cuts to defense spending and combat pay, railing, “Trillions in dollars in debt. Every miscreant and malcontent is subsidized. [The Obama administration with taxpayer monies is] looking for ways to subsidize home owners. We’re looking for ways to subsidize student loans. We’re looking for way to subsidize this, that, and the other thing, but men and women in uniform, we’re going to put the squeeze on them.”
Senate candidate and former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., came on Laura’s show to discuss his controversial campaign commercial that many have called “racist.”
Then the former chair of President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, Austan Goolsbee, warned Ingraham that reports on the economic recovery aren’t necessarily as optimistic as the White House wants the public to believe.
Ingraham’s other guests this week included Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who talked about the Obamacare mandate and budget reforms (FREE audio).
After CNN fired commentator Roland Martin for tweeting “anti-gay” messages during the Super Bowl, Beck’s response was surprisingly aggressive.
Beck and Martin had worked together at CNN, and this week Beck called him “a clown,” “a dope” and “an idiot.” He claimed that Martin has a history of making anti-gay statements, adding, “The guy clearly, clearly has issues.”
And now, from the left side of the dial …
Predictably, Al Sharpton pounced on Mitt Romney’s statement that he was “not concerned about the very poor.” As Radio Equalizer Brian Maloney explains, Romney simply “believes there is a strong government-run safety net for the least wealthy in the United States,” but Sharpton couldn’t resist misrepresenting the candidate’s remarks.
In fact, he went further and absurdly declared that there were no programs for the poor in America.
That means that in Al Sharpton’s world, food stamps, housing vouchers and any number of entitlements don’t exist.
It would be nice to think the poor don’t need them, because the “Reverend” Al Sharpton is single-handedly feeding and clothing them through his own considerable wealth. But then we’d be living in as big a fantasy world as Sharpton is.
