Mitt Romney: ‘I Will Not Take God Off Our Coins’

At a campaign stop today, Mitt Romney made sure everyone knew he was the candidate for the Religious Right.

With Pat Robertson behind him, Romney explained how he would never do the things… that Obama has never done either…

Pat Robertson (in yellow circle) applauds for Mitt Romney (via Politico)

“That pledge says ‘under God.’ I will not take ‘God’ out of the name of our platform. I will not take God off our coins, and I will not take God out of my heart. We’re a nation bestowed by God.

Who knew President Obama was trying to get God out of the Pledge and money!? WOO! Finally, his latent atheism comes out!

… or Romney was referring to the Democrats excluding the word “God” from their platform. Even though they put it back in. And even though “faith” played a prominent role in the original platform the Dems released to the public.

In other words, Romney insinuated things about Obama that have no basis in reality. Which seems to be his only strategy at this point.
