Romney Elaborates on Evolution

The New York Times Blog had this:

“I believe that God designed the universe and created the universe,” Mr. Romney said in an interview this week. “And I believe evolution is most likely the process he used to create the human body.”

He was asked: Is that intelligent design?

“I’m not exactly sure what is meant by intelligent design,” he said. “But I believe God is intelligent and I believe he designed the creation. And I believe he used the process of evolution to create the human body.”

I haven’t heard a better example of double-speak, since Bill Clinton wrote me “while personally against abortion I… ” (you can fill in the rest)

It seems I’m missing something but, I am unclear what’s Browback apologizing for here? Is he saying what someone believes is non-relevant? Or is he saying, “because I went from Protestant to Catholic, I don’t want matters of faith brought up.”

So I’m curious what you think. Does it matter if someone running for president is:

Believes in UFOs?
Believes Elvis is alive?

Who the computer says I should vote for…

According to this short quiz, Tancredo and Hunter are the current candidates that lineup most with my political positions. Tancredo got a score of 70% overall. Hunter 65%. Interesting Ron Paul (whose “The-Constitution-says-this-the-Constitution-says-that” message really appeals to me) only scores a 40% and 19% on social issues. That puts him just a few points ahead of Joe Biden! Also real interesting to me is that Rudy is lower than Bill Richardson. That should tell you something right there. Not that I ever thought he was conservative.

You can take the quiz here (check my note at the end of this post)

Here’s my results (let me know how yours match up)… Continue reading “Who the computer says I should vote for…”
