    Senator Marco Rubio was a Mormon until age 11

    http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/23/10487879-rubios-mormon-past-revealed
    When Rubio's family moved to a suburb of Las Vegas, near cousins who were Mormon, many in his immediate family (but not his father) converted, including Marco. Rubio was baptized in the church when he was 8 and enthusiastically participated in the religion, according to the report.
    He became a Catholic after his family moved to Florida at age 11.

    MSNBC headline: "Rubio's Mormon Past Revealed"
    Except he never hid it, no one ever asked.

    Let the liberal "I dont care myself, but it will be a big issue with Bible-thumping ignorant Republican yahoos" smearing begin!

    Round One, liberal analysis that it will "complicate the calculation" :

    “The revelation adds a new dimension to Rubio's already-nuanced religious history—and could complicate his political future at a time when many Republicans see him as the odds-on favorite for the 2012 vice presidential nod. Vice presidential candidates are traditionally chosen to provide ethnic and religious balance to a ticket. Mitt Romney's Mormonism and Rubio's Catholic faith would already mean the first two members of minority traditions on a Republican ticket in American history. Rubio's Mormon roots could further complicate that calculation.”

    Expect the left to attack the right for not being able to vote for a mormon, just like the left.

    Note the timing.  This will wash through and be ancient history by the general election, and this discussion is helping.

    It is a conspiracy, you are right..
    Hoping my superstar Governor Bob McDonnell gets the VP nod....this is part of our secret plan to knock Rubio off.
    Next we will investigate his high school civics papers...

    A Mormon? Well he's out...let's move on to next top VP candidate and dig up some dirt on them.

    A Mormon...really MSNBC?? Couldn't find any real problem with him, could you?

    Dear 2004 Voter, Let's talk about Dick Cheney's gay daughter. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but did you know, Mr. and Mrs. Southern Bible Thumper Baptist, that Dick Cheney's daughter is a lesbow??? Are you sure you want to vote for Mr. Cheney knowing his daughter is....gay? Maybe you should sit out this election. Sincerely, Your friendly local Moonbat and champion of diversity!

    There is one Moonbat, who pandered hard for the title in Florida.


    Go, Mr. Santorum, in Michigan!  (Bring poll watchers!  Of course you will.)

    1)  No.  Just campaign planning.  Get any pesky details out well ahead of the spotlight.  Then it will be, at worst, "That's old news," which we are definitely going to be hearing a lot in one form or another in a few months.

    2)  If Mr. Rubio had been Catholic and converted to Mormon, we wouldn't even be talking about him.  For several reasons.
