Apparently, some Romney advisors think that Romney really shouldn't give a speech about his faith. Romney was quoted today as saying:

"Is there going to be a special speech? Perhaps, at some point. I sort of like the idea myself. The political advisers tell me no, no, no - it's not a good idea. It draws too much attention to that issue alone."

I may agree with Romney's advisors on this one. Hey, as long as you are polling like this, it would seem to be an unnecessary risk. When what you are doing is working, stick with it.

I am Mormon, but I agree. Let's face it, most people wouldn't understand certain aspects of our faith in a sound byte. Seriously, have you ever had to try to explain Kolob to an anti-mormon? Or how the new Jerusalem will be in Missouri? They just don't get it because they are blinded by Satan. Not to mention all the irreverent comments there would be about garments.

One of the problems with giving a "Mormon Speech" now is that it makes it almost impossible to give the same speech later on if necessary when the entire electorate is paying attention instead of just Primary voters.

This sort of speech is much more important to the entire American electorate than just the Republican base. The ugly little head of bigotry pops up everywhere whether it is among Republicans, Democrats, whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, evangelicals, Catholics, or even Jews and Mormons for that matter. I don't know for sure, but from what I understand Kennedy gave just one "Catholic Speech" and that was during the General Election campaign and not during the Democratic Primaries. I think that the "Mormon Speech" might be necessary or crucial at some point, but it's best if delivered when Romney has the full resources of the Republican Party at his back defending him and ready to pounce on anybody who attacks Romney for his beliefs as irrational religious bigots. Once the Republican National Committee can be fully committed to Mitt, he will have added resources that could easily make him look like a victim if any anti-Mormon attacks become widespread in the media or by Democrats.
