Romney to address Faith and Freedom Coalition from the road

Washington (CNN) – Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will address an annual Faith & Freedom Conference via video conference instead of in person Saturday, the group confirmed to CNN.

Romney was originally scheduled to attend the Faith & Freedom Conference & Strategy Briefing in Washington, DC, but the event conflicts with his multi-state bus tour slated to begin on Friday in New Hampshire.

"We're very pleased that Governor Romney will still be able to address the attendees. It shows that the campaign is making a serious effort to reach out to grassroots activists who will be responsible for turning out the largest conservative vote in a presidential election in the modern era," said Faith and Freedom Coalition Communications Director Orit Sklar.

Despite the governor’s absence, there will be a Romney in attendance: Josh Romney will be at the conference to introduce his father, Sklar said.

    "....but the event conflicts with his multi-state bus tour slated to begin on Friday in New Hampshire."
    ----------------–
    Someone is going to check the top of the bus before they pull off, right?
    Is the bus employing a union driver and a union mechanic?
    How much you want to bet that Romney puts his foot in his mouth at least one stop?

    Why does Mitt Romney believe "corporations are people"? Because so many of his friends are inidividuals who are in fact individual corporations on their tax returns.

    California – The President is Christian, but then again, why is that such an issue with you?
    Do Non-Christians frighten you?
    Do Gays and Non-Whites frighten you?
    Would a Republican Non-White, Non-Christian Gay person frighten you?

    Hussein....Boooo! – Do you need to change your trousers?

    The hypocrites or evangelicals these days they are the same thing. They give lip service to how moral they are and how character matters. Yet they have been totally anti-Christian in their actions and beliefs when it comes to their acceptance of adulterous flawed individuals for President like John McCain and Newton Leroy Gingrich. And now they are going even lower not many years ago they were totally against the Mormon cults (Religion).
    I can respect an Atheist at least they stand by their non-belief but white Evangelicals are so confused and it shows in their hatred towards all things even poor whites don't have a chance with these hate filled groups.

    Romney can not talk to these peaople face to face because they will easily see how phony he is .... He should be directly asked as President how and what will he do for the least of these.

    In Romney world, the wealthy are the least of these – One of the obscurest, the least known, the poorest... LOL

    For a man (Willard) who "claims" to be worth so much – he sure is cheap.
