You guys watching Frontline?

The one about Romney and Obama? It seems like it's in the bag for Romney. They're not saying he avoided Vietnam for France. They're calling it "A difficult mission for his faith."

Also, I wonder if the Mormons are going to get a bunch of new converts from this?

Why is this on FRONTLINE, then?

If you want a good take on Romney's avoidance of Viet Nam for France, read this week's 'Doonesbury'

Frontline has a death wish?

They are blowjobbing his time at Bain. Concentrating on his Staples success which was basically his ONLY success.

A difficult mission for his faith ?? He endorsed the war and the draft .... but just didn't want to go himself.

PBS programming is produced largely because of corporate and foundation donors, who sometimes have a stake in the message. Koch brothers' sponsorship of NOVA (i.e. global warming), for instance. Who's sponsoring this episode of Frontline?

Too bad Tony Kushner gave the Mormons cultural legitimacy

If the Mormons were just walking around talking about the planets and how they get to have their own, it would just be more cultural myths, but as they intrude more and more on federal government, soon, we will all be bitches to MLM and Senn-Delany:

The est people (and Amway) use "Leadership Dynmaics" – Mormons have Senn-Delaney:

The phenomenon of shadow of the leader is somewhat synonymous with such old phrases as: “A fish rots from the head first”, “A chip off the old block”, “The apple never falls far from the tree”, “You’re just like your father (or mother)”, and countless other phrases.

While the concept is based on common human behavior in groups and is probably timeless, it was first studied in business organizations and commented on in Larry Senn's doctoral dissertation published 1970. The study was the first systematic study of the concept of corporate culture and its central finding was that organizations become shadows of their leaders. It was popularized in leadership workshops and speeches in the mid 1970s when Larry Senn founded Senn-Delaney Leadership to work with top leaders and their teams to shape organizational culture. Its first usage in print was in the book In the Eye of the Storm: Re engineering Corporate Culture published by the Leadership Press in 1995 and written by John Childress and Larry Senn. It was covered more extensively in a 2006 book Winning Teams - Winning Cultures by Larry Senn and Jim Hart.

They advertise as a company that “crafts cultures” and more importantly, decides who does not “fit in.”

“Senn Delaney was the first firm in the world to focus exclusively on transforming cultures. We were founded in 1978 with a singular mission: to create winning cultures...”

When he went to France on his "difficult mission" did he get hazardous duty pay? You know how dangerous those Frenchies are. Romney is such a tool. If the jackoffs in this country vote him in to office they deserve everything they get and believe me they will be taking it and taking it and taking it where life under Obama will look like paradise in comparison.

PBS is afraid that Romney will win and cut funding to them.

So they are hoping positive programming like this will spare them the axe.

It was brutal. A real valentine to Mitt. They made Obama look like a pothead with identity problems and alcoholic grandparents.

I didn't watch, but didn't they broach the subject of polygamy with his grandfather in Mexico?

by Anonymousreply 1410/10/2012

Yes, and they focused on what a loving family it was, how Mitt can't talk about it b/c of the polygamy and that they were persecuted and made and lost their fortunes many times. I'm telling you, thank God not many people will watch it.
