Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Okay, so we all know that Mitt Romney the bully has a little bit of a temper problem. We also know that he doesn't like to talk about his faith and his role in the Mormon church.

I haven't seen this diaried anywhere, but holy crap, this man is just out there. Check out Mitt Romney speaking about Mormon theology in a candid "off-air" moment before an interview with Jan Mikelson at WHO-Iowa...

A friend posted this on my facebook wall this morning, and I'll just quote her as to my reaction to this...

This is SUCH an important clip..not a political spin by the Democratic party. This IS Mitt Romney exposing himself (as he has been all along) and his religious beliefs that shape exactly who he is..

On the world stage, Mitt Romney would meet many many people ..other leaders..whose world view/cosmologies differ from what he believes is
irrevocably true..is this how he would conduct himself in meetings in international negotiations with foreign leaders of different worldviews requiring detente, calm, respectful listening, and delicate compromise?

Contrasting to President Obama's unflappable calm under duress. This man is "on the edge". ON THE EDGE. I find his behaviour terrifying.. and in addition...he is absolutely against abortion under any circumstances (as a mormon "bishop" co-ercing pregnant women in their personal decision-making), but apparently out and out blatant lying and deception to win an election is okay. This is a MUST WATCH
