Don Wilton is trying to backtrack on a seemingly very strong endorsement of Romney. He obviously can't say he didn't agree to let his glowing quotes about Romney be used, so he is trying to say, he didn't realize the national attention his endorsement would receive. I am not sure what that means, but reading between the lines, I suspect he may have got a negative reaction from someone. Anyone know the story behind this one?

Chalk this one up to Huckabee's showing at the FRC Values Voter conference. These endorsements were supposed to be part of a one two punch that allowed Romney to emerge with the mandate from evangelicals as the values standard bearer for the party. It didn't happen that way, and I for one believe that the failure to give the "Mormon" speech at the conference was a costly mistake. With it, Romney wins the poll in greater numbers. Without it, Huckabee defends his house and shadow-boxes Romney away from the evangelical club. Exactly what happened, and evangelical leadership cannot hop on the Mittwagon without the support of their sheep.

Aside from the "Lord" the second most important thing to a pastor is his flock. I suspect that some of his congregration expressed their displeasure and Don Wilton tried to assume a neutral position. From an outsider's perspective it looks really bad for the pastor, but it never NEVER a good idea to bash or criticize a man of the cloth. I say just ignore the story and go on!

Problems with the IRS, anyone? Also, there were probably a few faithful who let him have it on Sunday, but it seems that a pastor would know the heart of his congregation. Pastors, unlike politicians, are pretty tuned in.

Anonymous #2, no bashing on this one. Just confusion.
