    Why Mitt Romney is Unlikable?

    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 "un-likability."
    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.

    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 un-relatable 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 have
    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 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 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.

    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 around 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.

    I'll vote for him not because he's a Republican, it's because I believe he'll do a much better job in the White House.

    I remember, Obama is half Caucasian. He seems to forget that though...

    Well that's all pretty impressive ! But how can a man that did not serve in the military because of his religious beliefs send everyone else's Son and Daughter into Battle ? Most people of privilege have the same if not better credentials ! It's a lot easier to succeed when there is no pressure on you while Bain and staples employ thousands of people do they provide them with a living wage ? I kind of doubt it !

    TjayE, Consider the source and facts he uses on his/her/it's comments.

    When the election is over he and his band or merry men will disappear.

    YES, THAT SOUNDS GOOD BUT IT IS NOT THE TURE STORY: I SEE HIM AS BULLY, AND HE AND HIS FIVE(5 SON ARE COWARDS. He took advantage of the fact that MORMAN MEN CAN APPLY FOR A SPECIAL EXEMPTION FROM JOINING THE MILITARY. He used this advantage to stay clear of viet nam war. So while a lot of poor young souls from my community were coming home in body bags, he was doing "MISSION" in France. There were plenty of young morman men that by pass this exemption and fought in that war. The Romney family has history of not serving in the military. None of his five sons servedin the military and will not serve. Yes he started Bain CAPITAL WITH HAQNDFUL OF EMPLOYEES, BUT HE HAD ABOUT $40 MILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDS, RAISED FROM SOURCES THAT INCLUDED WEALTHY EUROPEANS INVESTING THRUOGH PANAMANIAN SHELL COMPANIES AND CENTRAL AMERICAN HIARCHY PEOPLE LIVING IN MIAMI. I could write all night about this liar, Mitt Romney, but i have more important things to do.

    Yeah, right, nothing worse than a liar!


    except maybe a phony and a liar.

    Sorry, but this rightous cause of military service or lack of it does not fly anymore.

    Clinton got of it by running off to Oxford, and during that time of Clinton and Romney, it was quite the thing at the time of the cerebal Liberals (commies) to promote, and participate in circumventing and evading the draft and military service.

    You people are a real joke when you push it.

    Anyone who values private gun ownership and has an IQ higher than a kumquat will vote for Romney because OBAMA WILL APPOINT LEFT WING, ANTI-GUN SUPREME COURT JUSTICES which will interpret gun issues from the ANTI-GUN PERSPECTIVE. PERIOD.

    Any gun enthusiast who directly (voting for Obama) or indirectly (voting for a third party candidate) helps the Supreme Court majority to become ANTI-GUN is an IDIOT......PERIOD.

    Mobilize all gun owners to SAVE THE SUPREME COURT!

    Vote Romney or lose your guns!

    That yes and what I've seen does not concern me as much as what I see from the white superman ! But I have not cast my vote yet again one way or the other I will as I'm sure you will ! What I hope for is who ever wins gets the support of all Americans ! If not how do we succeed ? If Romney wins I will give him his chance to prove his points if he wins I hope his plan makes America a better place with more living wage jobs ! Last night I saw more jobs leaving Illinois , non union auto parts jobs 250 plus fellow Americans out of work ! And the company owned by no other than Bain and Romney won't even stop in that town or explain ! Average Americans loosing their jobs to china something to think about in the voting booth ! Have a nice day and thank you for your civil approach in your last post !

    Where did those auto parts jobs go?

    Did they leave Illinois and go to another State or overseas?

    You do know that Romney has no control over Bain,don't you? All his money and busiess ventures are in a blind trust. He would know have first hand knowledge about it, if he was not involved.

    I tried to do a search about this and the only thing Google refered me to, was back to your post.
