I will not take God out of our platform, I will not take God off our coins, and I will not take God out of my heart.Mitt Romney • Speaking in Virginia Beach today. His remarks have stirred up discussion over the implication of the words above – is he suggesting President Obama aims to remove the word “God” from American currency? Romney is clearly ramping up his rhetoric on faith to try to take advantage of the Democrats’ embarrassing platform fracas at the DNC last week. source
naturalpatina asks: Isn't it unfair to compare those photos of Romney & Obama watching their wives speak? I may not be a fan of Romney at all, but, there's a big age difference between the kids in both photos. From personal experience, if I were any of the younger ones, I'd be completely disinterested in what was going on. To use their facial expressions in one photo to gauge how Romney's overall viewing experience was is unfair. Obama's kids are older, and better able to understand the significance of the speech.
» SFB says: We just thought it was intriguing that there were intimate photos of literally the same type of moment. We didn’t add anything to it other than the phrase ”Who had the better viewing experience?” Why overthink it? You can talk yourself out of anything by overthinking it. We decided to talk ourselves into posting the two photos side-by-side. — Ernie @ SFB
EDIT: And to be fair to Mitt, though that post was a reblog, there were other pics, like this Getty Images shot:
