That can be argued

If Mitt does as good of a job of restoring values to the White House as Bush did, we're all in deep shit. Criticizing the Clinton administration to show how you'll restore "morals" to the presidency is REAL original. Your good buddy didn't do that when he was running 7 years ago or anything: More to the point, it's his pathetic excuse for governing a nation that you should be thinking about cleaning up Mr. Pure and Ethical.

I guess he's only running for preacher when he talks about his perfect family values and tells other people how to live and says that kids need a mother and a father as opposed to two moms and two dads-among other things.

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney embraced his association with Christian conservative Bob Jones III Thursday despite Jones' sharp criticism of the Mormon faith central to Romney's life.

"I'm proud to have the respect of people and the support of people who don't agree with my faith, but agree that I'm the right person to be president," the former Massachusetts governor said while campaigning here. "And I'm not running for preacher; I'm running for president."

In the 2000 election, George W. Bush similarly basked in the reputation of Bob Jones University, a Greenville, S.C., school named for Jones's grandfather that is influential with some conservative Christians. Less than a month after a visit to the school, Bush wound up apologizing to Roman Catholic leaders for "causing needless offense."

The university teaches its students that Catholicism, like Mormonism, is a cult. At the time, it also had a policy banning interracial dating between its students. It rescinded the policy after publicity generated by Bush's visit.

The university continues a policy of banning alumni it says are "militant" homosexuals from its campus, school spokesman Jonathan Patie said Monday during an interview with The Associated Press.

Bob Jones III, the university's chancellor, said in his endorsement of Romney last week, "As a Christian, I am completely opposed to the doctrines of Mormonism." He also labeled the Mormon church an "erroneous faith," and included it in with Catholicism as a non-Christian "cult."

Nonetheless, Jones said he was backing Romney because he believes the GOP presidential contender embraces conservative values.

Romney's campaign has been touting the endorsement to skeptical evangelicals. Such support could prove critical in the Upstate area of South Carolina, the state slated to hold the third presidential primary.

Romney, bidding to become the first Mormon president, has said he understands questions about his faith, but he has also been protective of the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which he once served as a bishop and which he continues to back financially.

Asked Thursday how he could accept Jones's criticism of such a central facet of his life, Romney said: "Each church thinks their church is the best one or they wouldn't be going to it. ... The great thing about America is, we have our differences in viewpoint, but they don't lead to our discrimination against people based on their faith, or certainly lead to the kinds of violence we see in other places in the world."

I think it's code for "everyone's out of step but me".

No, just an unexplained one. The people I see babbling on about "family values" are usually the ones willing to categorize people and deny them rights based on whichever category they fall into.

So, I'll ask again: What the fuck are family values?

According to the AFA website's top ten stories:

Family Values include but not limited to;

boycotting anyone that supports gay rights, Jesus likes 2nd class citizens.

Kicking out illegal aliens, Jesus likes walls and doesn't like reaching out to the poor.

Counter protesting peace activists, the Prince of Peace hates peace.

The U.S. post office needs chaplains

and of course they hate Harry Potter again.
