Every time I think that Republicans cannot stoop any lower, along comes Ralph Reed and his 'survey' which should be roundly condemned but he is a 'friend' of Mitt so most Republicans are sticking their heads in the sand once again.
Every day the hard right is making it much harder for those of us center right to remain Republicans. Count this as another one of those check marks. Read this survey and ask yourself how any Christian could possibly put out this trash but this is Ralph Reed who is tied to the Abramoff scandal.
Usually not at a loss for words but trying to find the words that register my utter disgust toward Ralph Red and his group are hard to find.

Romney and Reed
A conservative religious group is sending its members a ‘survey’ that compares President Obama’s policies to those of Nazi Germany, and asserts that the President has “communist beliefs.”
The mailer, a product of the Faith and Freedom coalition, is titled the “Voter Registration Confirmation Survey.” But its questions have little to do with registering to vote. Rather, the survey asks a host of leading inquries into how its members view the President’s record.
The options prompt the most extreme answers — with very few moderate or supportive possibilities:
As Mother Jones, who obtained the survey, points out, the Faith and Freedom coalition and particularly its head Ralph Reed are leading the effort to turn out Evangelical voters for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. The group plans to spend over $10 million for this purpose.
Romney has praised Reed for his turnout efforts, saying, “Ralph Reed is doing a great job here with the Faith & Freedom Coalition. This is going to make a big impact across America and I appreciate the work you are doing here.” The Presidential candidate even gave Reed the ultimate honor of sharing a hotel with him during the convention.
