What will Christians do about Romney?

Conservative Christians certainly vote with their heart, and for the candidate that reflects their ideals. That's why Republicans get a lion's share of the conservative right-wing vote. That's changing somewhat as young Republicans notice a bit of a divide between what people say and what they do.

Does Romney really represent young emerging Americans on the political right? It's hard for the middle class, let alone lower, to cozy up to someone who only knows a life of wealth.

But that's not the only conundrum. Romney is a mormon. If there was a stronger Christian candidate (stronger than the wacko Santorum) you'd probably discover a stronger rhetoric of 'dont vote for that mormon guy'. If you go down that path then regardless of where you sit on the political spectrum it's Obama who reflects family values in his real life. Let your walk do the talking and not your empty rhetoric.

So that's the conundrum. Romney, the rich mormon who, well loves his family I'm sure, or Obama, the President who inherited a mess, might be creating a bigger one, yet seems a bit more accessible to the avg. Joe.
