Former Romney secretary/Mormon bishop: "I am dismayed" by Candidate Mitt


But Tony Kimball, another long-time colleague, said he was "shocked" by Mr Romney's "end justifies the means" approach to trying to win the White House.

"There is no way that I can square what Mitt is doing and saying on the campaign trail with the Mitt I have known for 40 years and I don't know how he can square it either," said Mr Kimball, a retired university politics professor who served as another Boston area bishop and then spent seven years as Mr Romney's executive secretary when he was stake president.

"I am dismayed by the things he feels the need to do as a political candidate. This is foreign to the way he spoke and presided in the church. It's not the same person.

"The hard-edged individualism, the turning his back on the poor, the arguing that the rich deserve more tax breaks, that is all counter to what Mormonism teaches about compassion and collective care.

Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Barack Obama.

Ron Paul cannot tell a lie.

Obama can never tell the truth.

and the Mitt-wit can never tell the difference!

Awesome find!

Kimball is another big name in Mormon culture (one of our recent prophets was Spencer W. Kimball). I'm definitely sharing this.

I didn't know the Kimball's were big in Mormon culture

Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like BS to me. Romney

Sounds like BS to me. Romney does not want hard-edged individualism. He created Obamacare.

Dont worry

Mitt will change his mind again shortly. Reminds me of a former friend who is a pathological liar. Ive heard "flip-flopper" is a "polite" political term for liar. Lets just call it for what it is. His mind changes depending on who hes in the room with to get his way.
