    Default Even if he wasn't my first choice...

    ...he's what is running against the totally inept empty suit currently in the White House, so he gets my vote. For those that have no info about Mitt Romney, other than what the MSP and the socialists are talking about, here's some factual statements you might want to keep in mind, to refute the Obamaites.

    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 MichiganHe was raised in Bloomfield Hills , Michigan

    He is Married to Ann Romney since 1969; they five children.

    B.A. from Brigham Young University ,

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

    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 state 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 certificateHe 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.

    But, on the minus side, 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 US.

    Here's some more reasons I will vote for him.


    A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being "likable" or that he doesn't "relate well" to people. Frankly, we struggled to understand why. So after much research, we have come up with a Top Ten List to explain this "unlikablility."

    Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:

    1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting's #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.Does not have Hollywood Celeb status.

    2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS. Why would women like that?

    3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)

    4. Can't speak in a fake, southern, "black preacher voice" when necessary.

    5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School ...and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

    6. Doesn't smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today's America ?

    7. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

    8. Has a family of five great sons....and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that "choice" deserves America 's scorn.

    9. Oh yes.....he's a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

    10. And one more point.....pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that's because he made that money HIMSELF.....as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad. Apparently, he didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans.

    My goodness, it's a strange world, isn't it?

    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
