Whoopi Goldberg blows it on
Mormonism and military service

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/18/2012 3:00:21 PM

As “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg demonstrated on Thursday, sometimes it is a good idea to brush up on subject matter when you want to pose a “gotcha” question in the heat of a political campaign. Mistakenly believing that Mormons are forbidden from fighting, Goldberg asked Mitt Romney’s wife Ann Romney how she would comfort the families of fallen American soldiers should her husband become president. (Snip) “No, that’s not correct.” Ann Romney replied. “We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in armed services.”But that didn’t deter Goldberg, who said that she understood that Mitt Romney

Comments:
Whoopi Goldberg is a total maroon whose brain seems as damaged from drugs as is 0bama's.

Did Goldberg truly not know, or was it a way for her to surreptitiously point out that Romney avoided military service during the Viet Nam era, while at the same time raising the issue of soon-to-be-President Romney's religion?

I've never watched the view and am not about to start, but from my vague impression of Whoopi, she's not always stupid, and this may be the stupidest thing she's ever said in public.

Of course Mitt was right not to go on, and it was quite brave (if mostly pointless) of Ann to go.

In fairness, which is honored in this forum, give Whoopi her due.

She’s generous. She came from nothing, succeeded hugely with her shtick, and is giving back. I applaud that.

But, she’s not erudite, well read, or liberally (and I use that word advisedly) educated.

So forgive (slightly) her ignorance on such things as religious studies.

My Uncle Charlie was a POW in Germany during the second war. He was as Mormon as it gets and he joined the USAF to be able to be a bomber pilot. My father-in-law did the same thing and was also shot down but made it to Sweden where he was neither a prisoner of war nor released to go back to the front. Many of the Quorum of the Twelve were soldiers during the WWII. All joined voluntarily. Former President Hinckley lost a brother in the D-Day invasion and visited his gravesite in France. If OPRA would open her eyes instead of her mouth, she could find this information out. If she would understand, there is not a more patriotic group of people anywhere than the LDS people. She is just ignorant and too lazy to look it up.

Poor chick.
She has confused The Church of Latter-Day Saints with Jehovah's Witnesses.
The Witnesses had a big fight during World War II about Conscientious Objector status.
Quakers will serve, I believe, as medics.
But Witnesses will not serve at all.

When I was on active duty, about 15% of the commissioned officers in the Army were LDS. Fine officers, and true gentleman in the heraldic sense. I enjoyed serving with them.

Just goes to show how ignorant some people can be; and then they open their mouth and prove it.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
