Romney-Religion-Show-3

If JFK’s people back in 1960 had only been half as smart as the Romney people yesterday, who knows how much better Kennedy’s famous address at the Greater Houston Ministerial Association might have been.

NYT video report on Romney show at the Bush library.  Video of Romney speech here. Video/transcript of Kennedy meeting here.  (Shorter except here.)
