In the strongest possible terms, Mitt Romney told me in an interview Friday that the push-polling attacks in Iowa on his Mormon faith are un-American.

’This is the week of Thanksgiving,’ an emotional Romney said. ‘This is a time when we are going to be sitting down with our families and celebrating the founding of a country, which was established in part recognizing our tolerance for religions.

And on this week of all weeks for a campaign, or supporters of a campaign, to be launching attacks on another candidate because of his religion ‘” it’s as un-American as I can imagine. And I think it’s very, very disappointing.’

I asked Romney what he thought of a push-poll that emphasizes the positives of his Republican presidential rival, John McCain. I also asked him what he thought of Sen.
