Just Some Real Facts About Mitt Romney That We Will Not Hear About From The Lame Stream Media About The Real Mitt Romney!


Mitt Romney:

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.

As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.

Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would go on 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.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap.

Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.

Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.

Unpaid bishop and state president for his church 10 years.

No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.

No salary as MA governor 4 years.

That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that's the kind of man Mitt Romney is!

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income....Obama gave 1%

Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%

This is real character vs....well you know what!

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 squander my money on vacations. I know he has the ability to turn this financial debacle that the "Spending President" has gotten us into. We didn't know that when Obama said he'd give us change, he meant nickels and dimes, and he would get the big bucks. 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.

Mitt spent two years in Paris to avoid the draft, a good presidential quality if I ever saw one, of all those businesses & jobs how many full time livable wages are paid? The steel Co. was built with Corp. Welfare, even the residents got stuck with a 1/4 % tax hike, both the county & state had more invested than Bain who a few years later took their 85% profit & ran. He might have given $4million to his church but lied about his income. Kind of makes one wonder how someone without an income doing all this free work can amass such an income & he is lying about that.

What difference would it make if he was in Paris when his number was drawn? How did living in Paris exclude him from the draft?

Same as running to Canada, your out of the country, he was wealthy enough to go before he got drafted & not after. There was no number at that time, he didn't return until after the number system was started & he knew he was safe.

I would like to think if you are really following what's already going on about NDAA, you'd see he really doesn't have to do much but let it run it's course & unfortunatly that don't happen over night.

Not that big Fred, they ran & hid like the spineless cowards that they are. The Gov. knew where they were Two that I know got good jobs, got married & had kids. Still live there with dual citizenship, IMO they should have never been allowed back but that's me. I know others with political pull that got into the Pittsburgh Air National Guard & never had to make a meeting or summer camp because they were overmanned, not right in my book but the way it was, just like the ones that took whatever classes they had to to keep them out, teachers & engineers are the ones I recall. My home town Mayors son went overseas somewhere to go to school maybe he roomed with Clinton for all I know.

In 2008 candidate Obama went on TV to say all wives and children of candidates must not be attacked, they're not running for office and all you Democrats cheered and agreed!

4 years later Democrat hypocrisy proves family protection is only for themselves. They lie about Romney's wife and children ignoring the truth.

Mitt did not live off his father's wealth ,once on his own after college, and neither did his wife and family, there's plenty of evidence to confirm it but Democrats only care to character assassinate and attempt class envy which the majority of Americans reject.

Mitt made his success in the World on his own, didn't join his father's companies, he took his education and became an investment specialist succeeding extremely well. By the time of his father's death he gave away his entire inheritance to his Alma mater BYU, every penny because he was wealthy on his own. His wife Anne raised their kids herself well before Mitt was a multi millionaire, got her degree going to night school because she had 5 sons to raise and worked in charities while suffering from Multiple Sclerosis and Breast Cancer.

Since the Democrats can't attack the truth they make up fictional stories, they're clearly lying through their Obama teeth, just as Obama lies everyday between breaths and are proud of their lies, they brag about being liars!

They are so frightened to have Obama's record seen for the failure it is that they'll do and say anything to hide it!

They say Mitt was a border jumper when he was born in Detroit March 12, 1947

They say his father was a border jumper when he was born to American parents living in Mexico as Mormon missionaries helping poor Mexicans.

They make bigoted attacks on his religion then tell you they are protectors of minority groups.

Being successful on your own is a crime in their minds, they can't relate to hard work and achievement only pity for their lot in life looking for handouts!

The real question is how they can delude themselves into thinking they are right!

Are you insinuating that he would have stayed in France and given up his US citizenship if he was drafted? How can you know that?

I thought he was in France doing Mormon Missionary work. Since all good Mormons do such Missionary work for several years, usually right after college, isn't that more logical than draft dodging? Or are they all draft dodgers in disguise as Mormons if their (essentially mandatory) period of Missionary work just happens to arrive during a time of war?

Speaking of character, I don't think I have the strength of character to keep up with this. My Irish temper gets the better of me and it doesn't contribute to rational discourse.

My accountant came back from Nam with a silver star and a couple of purple hearts, he doesn't mention his service or how other people were cowards. It's interesting that someone here who went to Viet Nam ostensibly to fight communism and the prevailing fear of the time that the "domino effect" would allow communism to dominate the world; defiantly defends the policies of the current administration and the left wing Marxist ideology. Go ahead and keep buttering your bread on both sides you know who you are.
Thanks by the way Lsayre for your intelligent posts.
I'm getting hysterical here, and that is against my desire to have courage under fire; the assault of powers that are determined to undermine and destroy our way of life. I thank my conservative brothers here, I'm glad some have enough sense to support the traditional American way of life.

Romney knows how to grow capital, Obama knows how to grow capitol, i.e. big government and a welfare state that will rapidly lead to the collapse of our freedoms.

I never said anything about him giving up his citizenship, & it was before college he's my age, it's before they had the # system, it is what it is.
He had dropped out of school but couldn't have got that deferment so he went to France. http://www.nationalmemo.com/strange-tru ... ch-palace/
No problem if I am wrong just prove it.
