Real Facts about Mitt Romney

I checked to see if this was on SNOPES or other manistream hoax busters--cos they would be jumping all over it... nothing! BEV
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Real Facts About Mitt Romney We Will Not Hear About From The Lame Stream Media

· 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. (I will add - volunteer-our missionaries pay their own way)

· Unpaid bishop and stake 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 a pathetic $300 or .0013%

· Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected (I think he is the best!). But 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 .

Do Us all a favor. Please send this to others who may be ill informed.

Hi, could you post something letting us know where you go this? I want to post it to my facebook account, but can picture people asking me where I found it. Thanks!

It was sent to me in an email. I searched online for anything to say it was a hoax but found nothing.

It's not a hoax. It's fact and has been stated on Fox and other radio host shows for the past couple of years since his name started to pop out as a possible candidate.

Another thing he did while at Bain--one of the employees children was kidnapped. Romnney took all the employees there and brought most of those abroad to the US-closed down the main office. Went to (I think it was in state of New york-but I might be wrong on the area)rented out a warehouse and made a command center. He had the zillion employees canvassing the areas with flyers knocking on doors--looking in every knook and craney to find this girl. He paid for it all-travel and all the expenses to the very last dime. I think it took three days, but she was found alive and tied up in a closet somewhere. Again, he funded and directed it all. Pretty amazing in my book. compassion and Immediate well thought out action.

Thank you for posting the "Real Facts" there should be more posted where everyone can see-no matter which side one is on. Truth should at least be out there to help make an educated decision. And I agree...He is not the top best, but condsidering our alternative and what will befall us all with the other side...he is the best we have to fight to get our country back on track.

Thanks Linda. This is valuable information to know about this Presidential candidate. Why didn't mainstream media ever do a news comment or 2 on this?

In regards to another comment that was posted under this post:

I had an anti-Romney comment sent here, and I totally respect your right to have and state those opinions and views. They are just as valid as mine. I didn't approve the comment because this is a family blog, and I will not approve sexual terms, or crudeness.

Thanks Sandie! I appreciate your finding that. Snopes is very liberal, left-wing so I was surprised they hadn't taken this one apart.
