The Irony of Romney's Appeal to the Founders


OK--this will be my last post on Romney's speech, I promise. But I could not resist calling attention to J.L. Bell's analysis of Romney's use of founding-era history at Boston 1775. Bell not only calls Romney out for some historical errors in his speech (and offers a host of other things to think about related to religion and the Continental Congress), but he also notes several ironies in Romney's mention of Sam Adams as a model of interdenominational prayer. It is worth a quick look.
