Romney, Obama and polygamy

"President Obama's honeymoon is over . . . Republicans are gearing up to run against him in 2012. . . . the smart money is on former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney gaining his party's nomination. . . . His candidacy, however, faces a major obstacle that should concern all Americans: religious intolerance. Mitt Romney's membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka the Mormon church) clearly hurt him in 2008."

Why is it socially acceptable to discuss the polygamy of Romney's Mormon ancestors (several generations removed), but not the polygamy of Obama's Muslim father and grandfather?
