Re: “ A marriage of doctrine, politics ,” Patrick Caneday's column, Sept. 8: I don't seem to recall that we are voting on the head of the Christian Church this November, I thought it was for the head of our country, a political office and not on a candidate's religious doctrinal beliefs. I venture to say that if we were voting for a religious office, many Christians would be hard pressed to go along with the beliefs espoused by Barack Obama's longtime spiritual adviser, Jeremiah Wright.

Presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney continued his push toward the Republican Party’s nomination with a campaign stop Thursday in Burbank. Speaking at the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, Romney spoke about a variety of topics — from immigration and English as a national language to the economy and the environment — to a crowd of about 300 students, families and local residents. Romney began the forum by drawing a clear line in the sand between him and others on the other side of the political aisle.

As part of its coverage of the Republican National Convention, Times Community News met with members of the GOP delegation from the 27th and 28th Congressional Districts - the areas that serve our coverage cities. Next up: Stephen Larson, a former federal judge from Riverside. Larson, who has seven children, received some media attention in 2009 when he resigned from the federal bench, saying the $169,300 salary was not enough for him to support his family. What city do you live in, and what do you do for a living?

ST. PETE BEACH, Fla. - California delegates who have gathered here for the  Republican National Convention   were unfazed by the cancellation of Monday's events, saying that safety must be the first priority. “So it's official, official-official. They're canceling Monday,” an aide announced Saturday as she read from her  iPad  in the lobby of the Tradewinds Island Resort, where California's delegation is staying during the convention. “I'm fine with that, whatever they decide,” said Diane McGlinchey, an alternate delegate from Huntington Beach.

Volunteers with the liberal advocacy group MoveOn.orgpassed out hundreds of pink slips near the Americana at Brand Thursday as part of a nationwide campaign to highlight what organizers claimed were the job-killing policies of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his vice-presidential nominee, Rep. Paul Ryan. Dressed in Romney masks on Brand Boulevard near Americana Way, volunteers also held up signs calling attention to the Republican presidential ticket's “flawed” trickle-down fiscal policies.

With the economy on a slow mend, some voters on Tuesday said they allowed social issues to weigh more heavily in deciding who should be president for the next four years. For Kika Martin, a 43-year-old entrepreneur and producer, positions taken by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on women's issues precluded him from getting her vote. "I definitely don't see him representing a woman like myself," she said outside a polling station in Burbank. Romney wants the Supreme Court to overturn its Roe vs. Wade decision, which guaranteed a woman's right to get an abortion through the first six months of her pregnancy.

I read somewhere that Republican candidate Mitt Romney's presidential hopes are in the snowball-in-hell category. No way, no how, no chance America would select him as its president. And that's not because of his political stances (which I mostly disagree with) but because of his religion. The man's a Mormon and in the eyes of millions of Americans, that makes him unfit for the job. In my eyes, that makes those millions unfit to cast a vote. Ditto for many in this country who would not vote for a woman or an African-American, regardless of their qualifications.

The mood among voters who hit the polls Tuesday in Burbank and Glendale was a mixed bag of frustration, anger, fear and uncertainty - not exactly a ringing endorsement for the next four years. “It was like picking the lesser of two evils,” said Margaret Mansour, a mental health counselor, as she emerged from a poll station in Glendale after casting her vote for president. While she declined to divulge her preference, plenty of voters did, sounding off on President Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a slate of state propositions and down-ticket races, including a contentious campaign for the 43rd Assembly District.

Rain comes down hard in Florida. It comes down suddenly and leaves just as quickly, the UV-rays quickly burning your skin in the places washed clean of sunblock. The contrast between the sun and rain is stark, similar to the difference between attendees of the Republican National Convention and their Occupy antagonists. Most of the delegates in Tampa have given - or helped raise - nearly inconceivable amounts of cash. One local delegate said he'd helped raise nearly $1 million for Gov. Mitt Romney's campaign.

Does a presidential candidate who misspells “America” love it any less than the guy whose campaign gets all the letters in the right order? Is he less fit to lead if his Facebook page mentions “offical gear” when it means “official gear”? Would the typo “sneak peak” on his Facebook page peg him as illiterate, an ineffectual supervisor or a helmsman too dumb to realize he's steering a ship of dummies? These are the questions raised by three typos in one week that the Mitt Romney campaign let slip, the most famous of them being a campaign app that went viral because it contained the slogan “A Better Amercia.” Anyone who's being honest is compelled to answer all these questions with a resounding “no.” The typos are not a smoking gun revealing a serious personal shortcoming on the candidate's part or even on the part of his staff.
