Jewish democrat group's baseless attack on Romney

From the article: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070212/ap_on_el_pr/on_the2008_trail_21 We read that Romney's choice the announce his candidacy from the the famous Henry Ford Museum is unacceptable because Henry Ford was an anti-semite. Here is my response to the story:

Your attack on Mitt Romney's choice to make his presidential announcement from the Ford Museum is completely unfair and blatantly partisan.

As a former Michigander and one familiar with the auto industry, I find your assertions toward Mitt stunningly inappropriate. I worked for General Motors, so I'm no Ford apologist, but Ford's misguided political beliefs have absolutely nothing to do with the Ford Museum. Have you ever been to the museum? The museum is NOT about Henry Ford himself. But it is, quite simply, the greatest historical collection of American industry and technology ever assembled. It is operated by a "The Henry Ford", an independent, not-for-profit organization.

Mitt's decision to announce from this landmark is ideal, given his focus on strengthening our economy and America's ability to compete on an international scale.

Please, if you have a problem with a candidate in the future, make your argruments substantive and relevant.

You owe Mitt and his campaign an apology.

The Jews may have no greater friends than the latter-day Saints! We share a common heritage...and also share past persecutions. I think that this story may be good to unfold the true nature of LDS people and their feelings towards the other house of Israel.

I believe Romney's delivery from the Ford museum was historic. What better way to symbolize the fusion of humanity and politics.

If criticism unduly fixates on a name--that criticism is blitheringly shortsighted.

If Mr. Obama was not elected for his name, it would be a sad day.

The greater challenge is to rise above, value divine rights of humanity and attempt to understand politics and governance in appropriate spheres.

As shown by its participation in the attempted whitewash of the hate speech at MoveOn.org's disgraced Action Forum, the National Jewish Democratic Council's opposition to anti-Semitism ends where the left wing of the Democratic Party begins.

NJDC implies Romney is anti-Semitic for giving a speech at the museum of a dead EX-anti-Semite (i.e. one who repudiated and retracted his anti-Semitic publications) while giving Barack Obama a pass for appearing at MoveOn.org, whose Action Forum was populated by living and rabid anti-Semites who posted an actual blood libel of Jews while calling for the removal of all "Israel-obsessed Jews" from Congress. The MoveOn bigots also posted anti-Catholic, anti-Evangelical, and even racist hate speech with the full knowledge of MoveOn.org's moderators.

Again, NJDC did its best to whitewash its allies at MoveOn.org over this issue. It has nothing to say about Henry Ford or Mitt Romney that any decent American ought to trust or respect.

Oh yes--it was Henry Ford's industrial methods that delivered the endless stream of weapons that led to Hitler's 9-millimeter-and-cyanide honeymoon with Eva Braun in 1945.
