(HUFFINGTON POST) Pat Robertson offered faint praise for Mitt Romney on the “The 700 Club” Monday, while indicating that he is the best alternative to President Barack Obama.

“It looks like the people who were worried about his Mormonism, at least that crowd is diminishing somewhat,” said Robertson, 82, after the show aired an interview with Romney. “The question is, if you have two candidates, you don’t have Jesus running against someone else. You have Obama running against Romney.” (Relevant exchange from CBN starts at around 4:00.)

The founder of the Christian Coalition and one-time presidential candidate in April also indicated that Romney was the best choice against Obama. “I believe [we] now have a clear-cut choice between somebody who has no plan and between somebody who has a very detailed plan,” he said.
