The FACTS about Mitt Romney … Only the Facts

Every voter should read this fact sheet regarding the background of Mitt Romney, especially those that continue to claim that they will *sit it out* this time around.

Working Background:

    ● After high school, he spent 30 months in France as a Mormon missionary.
    ● After attending both Harvard Business and Law Schools simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar exam.
    ● 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, The Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot, 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 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 choice for President of the United States.

You may think that Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected.

Consider this; at least we 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 around this financial debacle that the current regime has gotten us into.

We probably won’t like all the things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney’s background can do it, can make it happen.

But, perhaps on the minus side:

    ● He was never a “Community Organizer”,
    ● He never took drugs or smoked pot,
    ● He never got drunk,
    ● He did not associate with communists or terrorists,
    ● He never attended a church whose pastor called for God to damn the U.S.

NOW, tell me why you are not voting for Mitt Romney in November!

We cannot afford 4 more years of Barack Hussein Obama.

    I am voting for Romney. His religion doesn’t matter to me. He is a family man with good values. He is pro-life, pro-gun and pro-business.

    Ann Romney will bring grace and class back to the position of First Lady.

    GO ROMNEY GO!!!

  2. I’m voting for Romney, period.

    If for no other reason than the terribly important; no — the CRITICAL — SCOTUS factor.

    Anyone who sits this out because Ron Paul didn’t get the nomination, is well, fill in the blanks.

    • TexasFred says:

      Not a doubt in MY mind… But there WILL be some that do, and some thought to be Conservatives that hate Romney…

      This isn’t like 2008, ALL the 3rd party votes combined, given to McCain and North-woods Barbie and Obama STILL wins, this time it may be a lot closer than that, and I am voting for Romney! Not liking the idea, but doing it anyway!

  4. Donna says:

    I also attended Brigham Young, and it is one of the most challenging universities in the nation. (When the kids aren’t hung over every Monday, it’s a lot easier to study.) He has done amazing jobs with the Olympics and Bain – my only concern, honestly, is his record in Massachusetts – which I hope was due mostly to the high concentration of Dems there.

    He has my vote.

  5. Bluebonnet Sue says:

    Thanks for posting this, Fred. I’m sending the link to this website to all on my email list with a request that the recipients do the same with their list. Hopefully, they will do the same as will their friends and family and this information will go around the country.

  6. Robert says:

    Well Fred I gotta say this post was surprising. Accurate as all hell but you and me both know Romney isn’t our type of guy. And I whole heartedly agree with your assessment of Mitt.

    That being said: I will do everything in my power to help Mitt win in 2012. We can’t afford not to. And I think about it like this: The bar is so low now if Romney doesn’t burn down the White House and shit on the liberty bell, he’ll be considered a successful POTUS.

    Oh but a little note to Mittens die hard supporters. We will help elect him, but we sure as hell won’t ignore his dumbassery should he RINO up!

    • Donna says:

      “Oh but a little note to Mittens die hard supporters. We will help elect him, but we sure as hell won’t ignore his dumbassery should he RINO up!”

      Better not. Isn’t that how we got into this mess to start with? R and D are both culpable, both better be watched closely.

  7. minuteman26 says:

    When comparing the lives of the two candidates, it should be a “no-brainer”. Mitt wins hands down. That is unless you don’t have a brain to begin with.

  8. Texasperated says:

    Fred, after a long discussion with a lib yankee I think I finally convinced her that Romney is actually the 2nd worst candidate running in this race. After the circular firing squad that was the Republican primary season, we have a “last man standing.” Now that last man is not Ronald Reagan or Calvin Coolidge, I agree. But there are two things that every red, white, and blue-blooded American needs to do this November 6th — get the WH away from O’Bama and the Senate away from Dingy Harry. That means we cannot afford to ride away from trouble on a moral “high horse,” but have to slog it out in the mud. We may not take the country back all in a fortnight. But we have to take it back even if it is inch by inch.

    Keep your powder dry

    I am an independent. I don’t agree with either party or candidate fully and find it unrealistic that some people expect you to fully agree with the candidate. I look at the issues that are the most important during that era and I vote with the candidate that most represents my view on that.

    Right now, we need a successful business man who understands how capitalism works. His 80% return of good results at BAIN is more important than some of his other views. Tough decisions have to be made to have that kind of result. We need someone who can make those tough decisions. Venture capitalism is a tough field and the same skills are needed in our government now.

    I like Paul Ryan too but don’t agree on everything that he states either. I like him because he is willing to tackle the elephant in the room that all the other political animals have ignored, medicare! The end process through Congress will not be exactly as he espouses anyway. It will be amended and changed by the Congressmen and Senators that we elect as well.

    I liked some of what Ron Paul states but his military strategy and isolationism in my view will not work in the world today. Sitting out the election does not do anyone any good. If you have to, vote the lesser of two evils as I have done many an election cycle but vote.
