    Why Mitt Romney is Unlikable... Read!

    POSITIVE

    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.

    2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her,

    including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

    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?

    *****************************************************

    Personal Information:

    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.

    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 .

    The bad news: Obama is going to be the President for four more years.

    The good news: after that he goes away.

    For me, Romney has no credibility as evidenced by his well documented history of saying what needs to be said to get elected. But that is just the political beast, it happens on both sides. I, apparently like the majority of americans, simply don't trust him.

    I for one am absolutely dumb-founded that any American and certainly anyone on a shooting related site like this would even consider NOT jumping on the band wagon for anyone who runs against BHO. You give this guy 4 more years in which he will fill at least 1 if not more seats on the SCOTUS, and you will see the things that we take for granted as OUR RIGHTS be reversed. Forever.
    Now stop wallowing in class warefare and self pity and look at the bigger picture.

    I'm with 548.... Even if I agreed with EVERY thing Romney says he wants to do as President I couldn't vote for him because he has changed his position on major issues time and time again.

    I get it... many of you hate Obama and can look past Romney's morals blowing in the wind, BUT I CAN'T. I just wish I had a candidate I could believe in.

    Why is Romney

    Only one flaw I see in the post.Mitt will NOT reveal taxes paid over 2yrs. ago.Just the last 2yrs is revealed.

    Reason: His cronies and him made billions over the Banking fiasco and bailout.It would hurt his campaign if it was revealed what he made during that crisis.And,this info was received from a reliable MORMON source.Person actually told me even though they were Mormon,they didn't Trust Mitt.Of course,they didn't care for Obama neither,but felt the truth about Mitt's profitting off bankinf fiasco should of been out there.

    Personally,I'm still wavering,I think I'll vote EVERY incumbent out that I can,and as far as I'm concerned,it's a flip of the coin for the top spot.Maybe the debate tonight would change that.Somehow,Mitt ought to ask Obama to reveal birth certificate,College entrance papers and Obama ought to ask Mitt toreveal those Profitting years tax returns during the Banking crisis.

    I still don't get how people say they think Mitt is so disconnected, he's done more to help total strangers that any pol I ever heard of but I guess that still isn't enough for the trolls on this site

    But I guess that's what happens when you are so narrow minded

    He's been a life member of the NRA since 2006. Doesn't that strike you as humorous. The man is 65 years old and claims to be a life long hunter who at age 59 decided to become a life NRA member. Now that sh!t is just plain funny.

    I guess I just have a different perspective on the world. If I met Warren Buffett, for example, I'd love to buy him lunch. Certainly not ask him to buy me lunch, and not dispise him for his success. And I highly admire Mitt's success, not loath him for it. I've never gotten a job from a poor man, nor would I hire a buffoon to manage my money (tax dollars). Remember that we once hired a peanut farmer to run the show and that didn't work very well, nor has the community organizer, for that matter. We need business skills in office.
    Regarding WMR's changing positions, at this vital point our nation's history, I just don't give a sh-t. Not important in the least. He as close to a squeeky clean stand up guy as we are ever going to find, and to flush away your vote for the reasons given is absolutely absurd.
