Response to LiberalAndProud (Reply #18)

20. I see Mitt as a man who is very careful about behaving within legal boundaries.....

within his church, with tax returns, with financial disclosures needed when he's running for office, etc. I'm not familiar with the Mormon church and the moral code that it embraces. I'll have to do some research on that subject because I wonder if "following the rules" in the Mormon faith is more important than the state of one's "heart" (conscience) in relation to fellow human beings in and out of the Mormon church. So, I do believe that Mitt doesn't drink alcohol, tea or coffee because it's forbidden by the Church but I wonder how he reconciles his moral positions with that of his church......for example, how he earned his millions (legal, but moral?) and his desire to pay as little in taxes as possible (legal, but moral?).

I agree, he most certainly does have an air of entitlement about him. And he appears to be a man who can follow the "rules" of his church while he pockets millions and millions of dollars as he lays off/fires workers from companies Bain bought. Not only does he seem comfortable with making his millions in that way, he brags that he is proud of his success.
