Romney Strikes Back at "Values Voter" Summit

It's fascinating to watch one hypocrite attack another without the slightest self awareness. Conservative "values voters" (people who hate other people that aren't like them) are having a summit and they're in race to figure out which presidential candidate they can align with -- which one hates the right people (in a nutshell, gays, non Christians, non whites).  Romney was wrongfully attacked by a pastor associated with Perry, who called Mormonism a cult. Romney appealed to decency, which is really nice -- if he had any:
A day after a Dallas pastor's comments shined a spotlight on Gov. Mitt Romney's Mormon faith, the former Massachusetts governor told religious activists in Washington that "poisonous language" hurts the conservative cause. "We should remember that decency and civility are values too," Romney said at the Values Voter Summit. "One of the speakers who will follow me today has crossed that line I think. Poisonous language doesn't advance our cause it's never softened a single heart or changed a single mind." msnbc
Not only that, Romney appears to be a robotron and he believes that the U.S. should keep other nations down so that they don't become larger or stronger than us. Talk about an inferiority complex. How regressive and immature is that kind of thinking?
