I received this article in an e-mail from my friend, Carl.

It contains some facts about Mitt Romney that some people may not know.  He sounds like a nice man with a lot more integrity than our present POTUS.

Subject: His full Name is:

Written by a journalist for the Florida Times Union Newspaper.

His full Name is: Willard Mitt Romney

He was Born: March 12, 1947 and is 65 years old.

His Father: George W. Romney, former Governor of

the State of Michigan

He was raised in Bloomfield Hills , Michigan

He is Married to Ann Romney since 1969;

they five children.

Education:

B.A. from Brigham Young University,

J.D. and M.B.A. from Harvard University

Religion:

Mormon - The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints

Working Background:

After high school, he spent 30 months in France as a Mormon

missionary.

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law

School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar exam, but

never worked as an attorney.

In 1984, he co-founded Bain Capital a private equity investment

firm, one of the largest such firms in the United States .

In 1994, he ran for Senator of Massachusetts

and lost to Ted Kennedy.

He was President and CEO of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

In 2002, he was elected Governor of the State of Massachusetts

where he eliminated a 1.5 billion deficit.

Some Interesting Facts about Romney:

Bain Capital, starting with one small office supply store in

Massachusetts, turned it into Staples; now over 2,000 stores

employing 90,000 people.

Bain Capital also worked to perform the same kinds of business

miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy,

Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group,

Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.

He was an unpaid volunteer campaign worker for his dad's

gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

He was an unpaid intern in his dad's governor's office for eight

years.

He was an unpaid bishop and stake president of his church for

ten years.

He was an unpaid President of the Salt Lake Olympic Committee

for three years.

He took no salary and was the unpaid Governor of Massachusetts

for four years.

He gave his entire inheritance from his father to charity.

Mitt Romney is one of the wealthiest self-made men in our

country but has given more back to its citizens in terms of money,

service and time than most men.

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost

19% of his income....

Just for comparison purposes, Obama gave 1%

and Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%.

Mitt Romney is Trustworthy:

He will show us his birth certificate

He will show us his high school and college transcripts.

He will show us his social security card.

He will show us his law degree.

He will show us his draft notice.

He will show us his medical records.

He will show us his income tax records.

He will show us he has nothing to hide.

Mitt Romney's background, experience and trustworthiness show

him to be a great leader and an excellent citizen for President of the

United States.

You may think that Romney may not be the best representative the

Republicans could have selected. At least I know what religion he is,

and that he won't desecrate the flag, bow down to foreign powers, or

practice fiscal irresponsibility. I know he has the ability to turn this

financial debacle that the current regime has gotten us into.

We won't like all the things necessary to recover from this debt,

but someone with Romney's background can do it.

He never was a "Community Organizer", never took drugs or smoked

pot, never got drunk, did not associate with communists or terrorists,

nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the U.S.


UPDATE:

Thanks to presentdiscontent, I was reminded of a story about Mitt Romney helping to find his friend's missing daughter.  Take a second to read about it and your respect for Mr. Romney may go up a notch.  Go here for the story.

  1. I'm voting for the black guy so as not to be considered a racist...

    I sincerely hope you realizize that my tongue was placed firmly in my cheek on the above...

    Obama doesn't have or won't show the credentials to run a shoe shine operation and yet he's running or more aptly destroying the greatest country on the planet... Go figure...

  3. From what I have seen first person, from what I have learned. Mitt Romney has my vote and my respect. When he is elected I will let him earn my continued support with his actions just as Obama lost my hope with his actions. I did not vote for Obama but hoped that he would be better.

  5. I might only add this to the above list:

    * Mitt Romney helped locate missing teen daughter of Bain Capital partner

    "In July 1996, the 14-year-old daughter of Robert Gay, a partner at Bain Capital, had disappeared," the story reads. "She had attended a rave party in New York City and gotten high on ecstasy. Three days later, her distraught father had no idea where she was. Romney took immediate action. He closed down the entire firm and asked all 30 partners and employees to fly to New York to help find Gay’s daughter. Romney set up a command center at the LaGuardia Marriott and hired a private detective firm to assist with the search. He established a toll-free number for tips, coordinating the effort with the NYPD, and went through his Rolodex and called everyone Bain did business with in New York and asked them to help find his friend’s missing daughter. Romney’s accountants at Price Waterhouse Cooper put up posters on street poles, while cashiers at a pharmacy owned by Bain put fliers in the bag of every shopper. Romney and the other Bain employees scoured every part of New York and talked with everyone they could – prostitutes, drug addicts – anyone.

    "That day, their hunt made the evening news, which featured photos of the girl and the Bain employees searching for her. As a result, a teenage boy phoned in, asked if there was a reward, and then hung up abruptly. The NYPD traced the call to a home in New Jersey, where they found the girl in the basement, shivering and experiencing withdrawal symptoms from a massive ecstasy dose. Doctors later said the girl might not have survived another day. Romney’s former partner credits Mitt Romney with saving his daughter’s life, saying, ‘It was the most amazing thing, and I’ll never forget this to the day I die.’

    "So, here’s my epiphany: Mitt Romney simply can’t help himself. He sees a problem, and his mind immediately sets to work solving it, sometimes consciously, and sometimes not-so-consciously. He doesn’t do it for self-aggrandizement or for personal gain. He does it because that’s just how he’s wired." - Source: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/jan/30/chain-email/viral-internet-story-says-mitt-romney-helped-locat/

    1. Thank you for adding that story to the post. I have heard it before, but unfortunately we never hear anyone in the media repeating it. I found a link to the story's validity and will link to it in the post.

  9. You can call me whatever you want to but the facts are right there in front of you and me for all of us to see.
    Obama is a SOCIALIST!
    And Obama’s Progressive/Socialist Policies Are Destroying Our Economy and Robbing Us of Our Freedoms. How can anyone deny that?

    1. The Left will deny it because they want him to win (they agree with him but know "socialist" is a dirty word to most Americans). The ones who are reaping the rewards, don't really care what he is as long as they keep getting their stuff.

  10. He is a moral man who loves America. And that story shows his caring nature. As the election goes on I'm liking Romney better and better.

  11. By his own admission (http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/24/world/americas/24iht-dems.3272493.html?_r=1) Barack Obama used drugs and almost certainly passed drugs to his friends. This makes it likely he has committed drug-related felonies. Even just passing drugs around in a circle of friends is a “sale of drugs” felony. Nevertheless, it’s not really important whether we have enough definitive evidence to convict Barack Obama in a court room. It is, after all, only the seriousness of the charges and not the nature of the evidence that counts.
    During Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s March 1, 2012 press conference, his lead investigator presented a copy of Barack Obama’s draft registration card and explained how it was forged (http://www.awareandprepare.com/sheriff-joe-wants-obamas-draft-card/). It was clear that if the draft card Obama possessed was genuine, he, Barack Hussein Obama, received THE ONLY draft card issued since 1980 that was stamped with a single digit year. Every other draft card issued before and after Barack Obama’s special one includes four digits. Obama’s draft card is stamped with “80” for the year it was issued. Any legitimate stamp would say “1980.”
    Obama’s draft card looks like it was made by a high school kid learning how to photo-shop a document. All of this strongly suggests Obama may very well be a felon under several statutes of both Hawaiian and federal law.
    When Obama either made or received his obviously fake draft card, that could be a felony violation of Jimmy Carter’s Proclamation 4771, Registration Under the Military Selective Service Act, which retroactively re-establishing the Selective Service registration requirement for all 18–26 year old male citizens born on or after January 1, 1960.
    Failure to register for the draft – certainly indicated by possession of a forged draft card – makes a man born after December 31, 1959 liable for a maximum fine of $250,000 and a prison term of up to five years (http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/defenseandsecurity/a/draftreg.htm ).
    The law also stipulates that an unregistered male is not eligible for a job in the Executive Branch. The means a forged draft card cannot be used to satisfy the requirements to be the president. It means Barack Obama may be guilty of federal felonies because he possessed and presented an identification document that is a fake. It means he may have committed more federal felonies involving fraud when he presented a forged draft card to satisfy the requirements for any federal student aid he used to attend college in America (http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/financial-aid-scholarships/555721-penalties-not-signing-up-selective-service-age-18-strict.html).
    My goodness, there may be a felon in the White House!

    1. The question is...even if all of this is true, will anything be done about it? With the MSM in his pocket and the establishment GOP afraid of being called "racist", Obama doesn't have anything to worry about.

  12. "My goodness, there may be a felon in the White House!"

    Donna,

    Whether or not we have a "felon" in the White House we sure as heck have a problem, a big one. As I see it socialists/communists with the help of clueless dolts, who bought the phony "Hope and Change" hype, have now been able to place an operative in the highest office in our land! Felon or not I would rather see the reincarnation of Al Capone in the White House than that bitter, nasty, thuggish Chicago politician that we have now!

  13. The Ann Romney’s ‘You People’ Gaffe Goes Viral
    Ann Romney defended her husband’s decision to not release any additional tax records during an interview on Thursday morning, saying that “we’ve given all you people need to know” about her family’s financial records.

    The “you people” remark immediately sparked a outpouring of responses on Twitter, eventually leading the "You People hashtag to become a U.S. trending topic.

    Twitter users upset with Ann Romney’s comments generally fell into one of two categories: those that believe the Romney family should release tax records because of their extraordinary wealth, and those those took offense to the phrase “you people,” which has historically been used with an air of racism.


    This is one reason why I hate liberals. they are blood suck disgusting animals...they want to be treated with respect and know that even though they are scum most conservatives will treat them that way.
    They of course having been raised without manners of even the concept of manners do not have to treat other human beings that way.

    It is all part of the liberal zombie agenda.
    They are the most vile of humanity. Totally without souls, putrid, evil twisted morons. There simply aren’t enough adjectives to describe slime like this. There is something seriously wrong with them. And as for the the Colorado theater tragedy, Liberals never let a good tragedy or crisis go to waste!
    My heart goes out to all the victims of this horrible, senseless tragedy.

    That being said, I can hardly wait to see how long it takes these Progressive bloggers, talk-show hosts like Piers Morgan, George Stephanopoulos, or some other POS liberal talking head on CNN or PMSNBC to try to blame this on the TEA party, , or some other Conservative group.
    ABC News has suggested that James Holmes -- the suspect in today's shooting in Aurora, Colorado -- may have a connection to the Tea Party.

    ABC's Brian Ross reported this morning that there is "a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, page on the Colorado Tea party site... talking about him joining the Tea Party last year.
    All these are accusations without and evidence whatsoever.

    Nothing Wrong Obama With Politicizing A Tragedy.. But then again, they'd use anything to change the topic from "you didn’t do it Yourself" speech!

  14. "Liberals never let a good tragedy or crisis go to waste!"

    And to add insult to tragedy those nefarious enemies of freedom have just been handed a gift, a big one! In a perverse way this nut is the best thing that ever happened to the B.O./Holder/Hillary gun control plan. If you haven't done so, my advice is to 'stock up' while you can!
