Top Ten Reasons To Hate Mitt Romney

speaking at CPAC in Washington D.C. on Februar...

A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being “likable” or that he doesn’t “relate well” to people.

So after much research, here is a Top Ten List to explain this “un-likablility.”

Top Ten Reasons To Hate Mitt Romney:

1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike demeanor. 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, “preacher voice” when necessary.  (Could learn a thing or two from Hillary, Al, or Barack in that area)

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 un-relatable to Americans.

  1. What a crock of steaming crap… *laffs* You can pretty much apply the same points to Obama:

    1. Obama oozes class, dresses beautifully, has that sexy intense stare and can carry a tune!

    2. Been married to the same lovely, vibrant woman and has been loving and faithful to her as well.

    3. No scandals or skeletons in Obama’s closet either, he has been rather generous in sharing his thoughts, beliefs and life with us in his books and press conferences and interviews… but you can’t say that with any truth about Romney… for example, not divulging his hidden offshore businesses in his wife’s name… hiding his tax returns when it is customary for presidents to be far more financially transparent. Lying about his residences when we was governor etc… I could go on… but I have a date and want to wrap this up…

    4.Obama has superb oratory skills and even has written some of his speeches… he has a great command of his Presence and doesn’t come off as a rusty robot like Romney does.

    5. Obama is also extremely intelligent and Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School, which, according to the Harvard Law School website, is awarded to the top 10% of the school’s students. He was also elected as the first black President of the Law Review, an honor that the school says is given to a student seen to have great potential for the legal field. (Wiki) So Obama beat Romney in the intelligent dept with his Magna vs Romney’s Cum Laud and Romney never made history of anything whereas Obama has twice.

    6. Romney has Obama beat here if you consider not experimenting with life, culture, society, and your own boundaries as something to be proud of. I don’t. Obama has experience in areas of growth and evolvement and understanding of the main population that Romney doesn’t have and never will. Though he does smoke cigarettes which isn’t cool, he has been struggling to stop. So have I for that matter.

    7. He, too, represents an America that embraces a belief in God, goes to Church, doesn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a brilliant SUCCESS! Brilliant! And he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth to get him started, either.

    8. He has two gorgeous daughters who are extremely intelligent like their father and neither of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a mom who has high ethics, strong morals and a great sense of fun!

    9. Obama is not a Mormon but he has a strong belief in the freedom of religion.

    10. And last but not least…..people say because Romney was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and grew up in an extremely wealthy family, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. And I agree. Romney never knew what it was like to have to rob Peter to pay Paul or to wonder if he could afford to go to college and make something of himself. Daddy paid for his college. Romney never knew what it was like to have to shop in Walmart because he couldn’t afford to shop at Neiman Marcus or whatever high end shops the extremely wealthy shop. He never knew what it was like to have eat boxed mac a roni and cheese, or ramen noodles or tubed hamburger or canned corn because he couldn’t afford the gormet, organic foods… Romney never knew what it was it like to choose whether to pay the electric bill or buy food for his family. No. Romney has no idea what it is like to be an ordinary American. Sure he was a success and that’s the American dream, but his success wasn’t about building up his community nor did he choose a career that the community could benefit from like a doctor, or community organizer or a sociologist or plumber or a garbage man… Romney’s career choice was about tearing down the community and pocketing the profits.

    Obama, on the other hand, was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth… he knew what it was like to rob Peter to pay Paul… He knew what it was like to desire something and not be able to have it. Obama paid for his college through scholarships and student loans that he was still paying on when he published his books. His writing and publishing eventually brought him millions and made him a wild success. So yes, he understands the ordinary American because he’s been there and he also understands the desire to own the American Dream because he succeeded by his own hand. Obama went from nothing to the President of the United States. I’d say he has Romney beat there, too.

    • You don’t know a whole lot about your candidate, but then neither does America. I’ll give you numbers 1, 2, but 3 Bull-oney. The man is as secretive about his past as Howard Hughes. We don’t know anything about this guy. College transcripts are sealed. Why? You want to see Romney’s tax returns so you can beat him over the head with “you’re too rich”, but no one on your side says a word about Obama’s hidden past.

      #4 Obama is a great reader…without the teleprompter he’s slightly better than Biden. #5 Obama is a smart guy – street smart. I don’t think he’s all that intelligent and I question the legitimacy of his Harvard experience. Until he opens up his sealed past I and millions of other Americans will question it. #6 Ok. #7 I got a problem with Rev Wright and those 20 years in that church hearing that inflammatory rhetoric as opposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Sorry, but I don’t think that’s what Wright is preaching.

      #8 agreed. #9 I can’t say for sure what his faith is or what religion he adheres to. It isn’t readily apparent as it is with Mitt or Presidents past.

      #10 shows how little you honestly know about Mitt Romney’s past. Born with a silver spoon? If you mean born into a wealthy family fine, is that a crime? Something to be scorned? Mitt Romney worked for everything he had. When he went to BYU he lived off of a meager wage and lived in a small basement apartment with concrete floors. Mitt’s parents offered financial aid but he refused. You assume much with nothing but “I say so” to back it up. You also parrot the now debunked talking points about Bain Capital. But why let facts get in the way of your myopic view through those dark blue glasses. “Romney never knew what it was like to shop at Walmart” you say. Really? And how do you know this? Do you know him personally? Have personal ties to his past? No, just assumptions based on what you read at MoveOn.org or the Huffington Post or any other liberal attack media.

      Thanks for the comment. There’s a morbid curiosity in me that wants to see how much damage an unleashed lame duck Obama can do with another term. The pragmatic side of me shudders at the thought.

      • I know more about my candidate than you obviously know. You should research quite a bit more… try reading some of his books to begin. It’s apparent you haven’t or you would not have said he is secretive and that you know nothing of him, because his books reveal quite a bit.

        Numbers 1 and 2 we agree with.

        #3 If you would do a bit of research you would learn that few presidents have ever given over their college transcripts, though they have given over many years of their taxes, including Romney’s own father… probably because, unlike you, they realize the importance of their taxes vs their college transcripts. I mean, who cares what a GPA is beyond getting a job and writing up a resume? I’ve known people who flunked out, but had an //a/s/s// kicking resume that got them the position they sought, so have you, I’m sure. Who cares whether or not a president once skipped classes or whether a POTUS once dropped out of a class or left it incompleted etc etc… but taxes are a whole other animal and if past presidents can see the difference why can’t you? Huh?

        Taxes, will show whether or not Romney can handle the economy… taxes are a behind the scenes kind of thing… sure the headlines will scream Romney is a great businessman because on the surface he made all these millions, but his taxes will show how he managed to be a great businessman, how he made all those millions and at WHOSE expense. This will tell the people a magnitude of things…

        In addition his taxes will tell us when he was actually removed from Bain Capital. He says he left Bain in 1999 to go play with the Olympics and never had another thing to do with Bain, but SEC says he was still drawing profits from Bain as late as 2001/2002, this is including profits from GST Steel when it was bankrupted by Bain Capital, which as you know, has become a nasty scandal, that Romney denies wholly. I can understand why he wants to hide it from the People. It’s very ugly. This is why Romney’s taxes take precident over mere college transcipts, that after four years now, is null and void, old news, republican cliches that no longer work. Next?

        #4 Again the same old republican bull, the teleprompter gig… Every single past president has used the teleprompter and notecards for every speech they made and god knows Bush should have used more! Obama writes some of his speeches and wrote two books under his own hand without the usual ghost writers. Obama is a brilliant writer and orator and politician. And this brings us to …

        #5 Obama graduated Magna cum Laude, your choice to disregard that fact does not make it false, it just makes you look silly and petulant. To use your word, stop ‘demonizing’ Obama because of your lack of facts that are accessible. His degree is a fact, so research it. Combine his scholarly intelligence with his street smarts and you have a very wise person who can relate to most of America and Obama is very wise. Read his books. He writes beautifully, lyrically, and you can see in his words he’s the type of person who learns from his experiences and observations and then applies to his life what he learns. As to ‘millions of Americans’ who are concerned about Obama’s transcripts, I think your numbers have shrunk considerably in light of the importance of Romney’s taxes.

        Number we 6 agree on.

        #7 Reverend Wright was a radical aspect of Obama’s past and he said as much… read his books. People evolve and change with time and experience. So do people who become presidents. Obama is black, there is no denying this and he was born during a time of racial inflammation in our country. White people were effected during that time, so why is it such a big freaking deal when black people are effected? It was about them, after all. So yeah, Obama was effected and influenced by his surroundings and environment, by his parents, by his society and the people in his life, including his teachers, professors, ministers… etc. And this is a terrible thing? Then condemn every single person ever born.

        Number 8 we agree on.

        #9 It doesn’t matter what his religion is, what matters is how be treats other people’s religions and I reiterate, he is a believer of freedom of religion.

        #10 I probably know as much about Romney’s childhood as you do about Obama’s. However I do know the man never had to do without. He had money growing up hence his silver spoon and connections through his father when he became an adult. Location location location also applies to who you know and Romney was always in the right place with the right people. Because of Daddy. And no there is no scorn here, just facts…

        Romney has no idea what it is like to be an ordinary American, one who does not have an elevator for his vehicles for example, those vehicles that haven’t been repossessed that is. I’m sure Romney has never had to worry about making his car payments, do you? *laffs*

        I bet you, Romney and his family have no idea what boxed macaroni and cheese taste like or have ever heard of Ramen noodles. I bet you that his family, wife and sons have no idea what it is like to do laundry with their own hands, to scrub toilets with their own hands, to get on their knees and dig their garden so they’ll have supplemental food. Romney grew up with people hired to do this for him and Romney’s sons grew up with people hired to do these mundane tasks for them. To deny this would be foolish on your part.

        No, I don’t know Romney personally and he doesn’t seem to be the type of person I’d want to know because he seems too slick and oily, with too much to hide… he seems to be the type who has had everything at his fingertips all his life. *snap snap* Has had everything he’s ever wanted. Until now, in his bid for the presidency, he has never known what true desire is. So what do you give to a man who seems to have everything?

        Why the Oval Office, of course. The last notch in his belt. That’s all he cares about.

        America? America is merely a stepping stone for this man… nothing more. A means to an end.

        And if he gains the White House it surely will be The End.

        • You make some very far reaching assumptions which are rarely accurate. I have read much about Mr. Obama, but I’m sure my sources would be questioned by you as yours (Daily KOS, et al) are questioned by me.

          I do respect your views and your opinions which are well articulated and thoughtful and I appreciate the overall civil tone of your comments. I’m sure we both love our country and want to see it governed in the best possible way, however our views of which direction is best are quite different it appears. Although I’d wager we are closer in many ways than these few exchanges would indicate.

          Thanks for coming to the blog. I hope you’ll visit again and continue to share your views with your comments. I try to be open to conflicting viewpoints and give them serious consideration and thought depending on how well they are delivered and sourced and believe it or not I have adjusted my views before after discussions with my friends on the left. The GST issue has also been fully vetted and much of what has been written by the liberal blogs has been shown to be contextually inaccurate. I blogged on that recently and you can read it here. https://longversion.wordpress.com/2012/07/18/bain-capital-and-gs-technology-the-rest-of-the-story/

          Thanks again for sharing your views. I do enjoy good discussion with people who can have a “good discussion” without throwing stones. (not that I have never thrown a stone or two. but I repented… =)

        • So help me understand why someone would seal their college records when all it shows is GPA? I almost feel bad replying to this one because you really don’t look very smart in your reply. Just ask yourself why? Why seal them and spend millions of dollars to keep them sealed and hidden? You throw a tantrum about Romney hiding something with his taxes but you don’t even blink at the thought that your own guy is hiding something? See how disingenuous that is?

          Honestly, as I read more of your posts I realize you’re not as brainy as your username would infer. You’re pretty much a parrot of the party line with all of the familiar buzz words, catch phrases, and talking points heard over and over in the mainstream media.

          Debating with you wouldn’t be much fun. Sorry.

          You can declare victory if you like but I’ll let readers judge for themselves whether your “points” have any validity or whether I was simply merciful by bowing out.

          Have a great life and if Obama does win, don’t be too shattered when things don’t go the way you think they will.

          If Romney wins, don’t be too surprised if your life actually improves.

        • Actually, Romney has been a Mormon Bishop and Stake President. They are like a pastor type figure over a ward of a few hundred in the LDS church. They are not paid, it is strictly voluntary and takes personal time and sacrifice. They deal with many needy families when it comes to food, income hardships, as well as just personal emotional hardships like death, divorce, illness or other issues. He’s seen his fair share of real life hardship. Counseled and hurt for these people. He’s served a 2 year mission in a foreign country. As a member of the LDS church, you learn to constantly serve and work hard. He’s seen struggle in his life. Just because he has had his monetary needs met throughout his life doesn’t mean he hasn’t had still worked hard and had real life experiences. No, he’s not perfect. No one is. But I think his list of good characteristics completely outweigh any of his bad ones.

        • I gotta stop you here in regards to number 10. You are making unfounded assumptions. You must not know anybody of integrity that has ever had money. You must understand that money doesn’t cause people to become self-appointed kings and magistrates. You’ve seen too many movies like Wall Street and jump to the conclusion that everybody that has achieved success is automatically Gordon Gekko. Money doesn’t change people. Money magnifies who people are. If they are a dishonest jerk they become a HUGE lying prick. But if they are good, honest, charitable people then they become a force for good in the world like no other, giving freely of they time, talents and money to good causes. The reason you don’t read about this as much is because in the case of humble people like Mitt, they do it secretively and quietly for the sole purpose of not trying to gain recognition for it. They do it out of love. Hard to believe, right? I mean, think of how much that recognition could help him politically! No, they give, give, give and all the while ask for nothing in return. I lived in Chile with Mitt’s son. Not only did he not have a maid like you allege but he SERVED others. He served and loved the people of Chile for two years without pay. He walked the streets of the ghetto day after day with a smile on his face in the sweltering heat and the freezing cold. This is what Mitt did in France. This is what his other four sons did around the world. Doesn’t seem to fit your stereotype. I’ve been to Mitt’s house several times. I’ve been to his son’s house. Believe it or not, they actually do not employ housekeepers. They are responsible and hard-working people who clean up after themselves. I spent New Year’s Eve with Mitt and his family before he announced his campaign in 2012. Mitt MADE AND SERVED me dinner that night. Yes, MITT. Not Ann. Not their non-existent butler or private chef. Mitt is part of a rare breed of inhumanly generous, funny, and brilliant people. Accept that. And accept that his desire to get this country on track are righteous. Believe me. They are that and only that.

The cover flap on the one about his father says that Obama was born in Kenya. Either he was lying then or he is lying now as he says he was born in Hawaii. Regardless of when he lied he is a liar.

I am so grateful it’s his last term. I could care less about where he went to school, what religious beliefs he does or doesn’t have, or whether his money was inherited or self made. There isn’t one change he has forced through that I consider beneficial to this country. Obamacare? Caused thousands of people to lose insurance policies they could afford and forced them to get one they can’t. He’s incapable of keeping his word to the people, doesn’t keep us informed of policy changes until after it’s too late to say anything, and puts his presidential fingers all over issues that a president should let the citizens decide (but wait, we’re too small minded!) And if his successor is to be Hillary, you bet I would vote for Romney. She’s just as bad.

This carries irony as you point your finger at the original post and make an attempt to call “it” out for making accusations against your Obama. When in fact it never mentioned Obama. Not once. So you can leave him frankly out of the argument.

          I challenge you to spend one week shadowing the life of an LDS Stake President (of which Mitt Romney has once been) and then tell me, objectively, how much Mitt likely does or does not know about ordinary life, ordinary people, and what it means to sacrifice much of ones own time for the “ordinary”.

He was probably reluctant to share that information because Mormons believe that charity should be done in private. Telling everyone “Hey look how charitable I am!” gives you praise from man, but not God.

      • I personally knew Mitt Romney in France before he was married and had little college behind him, which was in the late 1960s. As to doing things like “real people” such as the Wal-Mart references, Romney shopped in places over there, that while maybe quaint and interesting, were primitive and spare compared to any Wal-Mart of today. He lived in apartments that were not up to American ghetto standards. He did live at the Mission Home at 3 Rue de Lota in Paris for a while, when he was serving in a capacity that required it, which was a very nice place. It had been the Russian embassy prior to WWII, but all of us spent at least a little time there. The French members also had a branch meeting place there and used it for the Paris Branch of the church. Romney was unaffected and unpretentious when I knew him. I doubt he changed with more age and wisdom, and from what I hear he became even more humble and service oriented. I won’t go point by point on the list of 10, and I seriously doubt he would be nominated again, but the personal attacks on Mitt Romney representing him as a spoiled rich kid are baseless and false.

But if you seek the pure doctrine of Christ, the word of God ‘which healeth the wounded soul,’ and the sanctifying influence of the Holy Ghost, then here you will find them.” (Dieter F. Uchtdorf, 2013) Sorry to disappoint you. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-days Saints. I’m not perfect in fact you may find lots of flaws. And just so you know my boyfriend is not a member and he is the best man I know. He is kind, intelligent, compassionate, good looking, and I could go on.

IF he had proved his first term that he could do the job I possibly might have given him a chance to continue. I didn’t and don’t want him to continue dragging MY country into the toilet. He can’t even get his own wife to quit showing her disdain for this country in front of the cameras for Petes sake. One thing I can say in Obamas favor is he seems to be a great dad.

        • Why don’t you actually look at the true unemployment numbers. The only thing that gets put out by the media is the current weeks numbers which doesn’t include those who have given up looking for a job or those who no longer receive unemployment benefits. As for the price of gas, the reason it is below 2 dollars a gallon has nothing to do with his so called policies. It has to do with the shale rock fields that have been over producing and have caused a excess of crude oil. You want to give him credit for these things so do you also give him credit for the 18 trillion dollar deficit? Or do you blame that on every president before him? Why has there been more police officers killed in the line of duty during his time in office then any other president? Why is the radical Islamist, which he has stated he will stand with, killed more than at any time previously in the modern age? Why are race relations going backwards when since the late 70’s they were improving? If you are going to claim a few untrue good things about his time in office you also have to claim all of the wrong. And one last thing, why should the radical Islamist detained at Gitmo be released so they can go back to their countries so they can again plan and attack innocent individuals. If this is the type person who you think is good gor this country then please go to another country.

      And what’s unusual about going through college on scholarships and loans? Don’t try to paint Obama as poor. Even as newlyweds he and his wife were both attorneys

Don’t know who she uses as a designer, but she needs to re-consider the situation. As far as Obama, oh yes, he thinks he is God and he struts like a peacock, but that doesn’t make his smart, good looking or any of the wonderful items you stated. What did he do to get to the title of President. Must have paid a lot of people, because he had NO background of business and does he really have a degree from Harvard????? No one will ever know, will they??? Don’t trust any President that has all his records sealed or locked up. Must be hiding something, huh?

    • Pretty one sided portrayal. The main reason to dislike Mitt is that he is a vulture capitalist who destroyed American companies so he could send American jobs to other countries all to make himself and a few of his cronies weathy. This is unpatriotic and certainly not a credential for a presidential candidate. He is a flip flopper, I.e. has no real values but will adopt any and all positions necessary to further his own interest. Thus he is dishonest and can’t be trusted. He’s also a boorish snob – 47%. Tell Mitt to get out of politics. He’s too flawed. and He obviously does not represent any real people – corporations and the 1% but not real people. And Corporations are not people no matter what Mitt or the Supreme Court says. They are a legal entity but not a person. Anyone who says they are is an idiot.

If you don’t like him, suggest a better person to do the job along with all the great things about them. The American people deserve a choice of good people who are willing to stick their neck out and do the job honestly and professionally with American’s future and it’s people’s lives as a priority and not their own agenda and their friend’s pockets to fill. Not to mention our nation’s international interests and National defence which has taken a serious hit over the last two decades. Until the majority of the American citizens take a serious roll in the future of this nation, it is going to continue to slide into decline and ruin. It takes a honest ,informed , and dedicated citizenry to clean up a government that is on a collision coarse with oblivion . Take a hard look at all the world powers from past history and then look at what is happening in America. Draw on your own examples. It doesn’t really matter what your political feelings or lifestyle is, If America fails to endure, everyone in this nation, citizen or not, they will lose their freedom to determine their own destiny as well as that of their children. Freedom once lost is very expensive to recover.

    • I’m sorry I only read until the part that you had a date and needed to wrap this up, and then scrolled down to see this all of this written by you.

      4.Obama has superb oratory skills and even has written some of his speeches… he has a great command of his Presence and doesn’t come off as a rusty robot like Romney does.

      5. Obama is also extremely intelligent and Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School, which, according to the Harvard Law School website, is awarded to the top 10% of the school’s students. He was also elected as the first black President of the Law Review, an honor that the school says is given to a student seen to have great potential for the legal field. (Wiki) So Obama beat Romney in the intelligent dept with his Magna vs Romney’s Cum Laud and Romney never made history of anything whereas Obama has twice.

      6. Romney has Obama beat here if you consider not experimenting with life, culture, society, and your own boundaries as something to be proud of. I don’t. Obama has experience in areas of growth and evolvement and understanding of the main population that Romney doesn’t have and never will. Though he does smoke cigarettes which isn’t cool, he has been struggling to stop. So have I for that matter.

      7. He, too, represents an America that embraces a belief in God, goes to Church, doesn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a brilliant SUCCESS! Brilliant! And he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth to get him started, either.

      8. He has two gorgeous daughters who are extremely intelligent like their father and neither of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a mom who has high ethics, strong morals and a great sense of fun!

      9. Obama is not a Mormon but he has a strong belief in the freedom of religion.

      10. And last but not least…..people say because Romney was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and grew up in an extremely wealthy family, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. And I agree. Romney never knew what it was like to have to rob Peter to pay Paul or to wonder if he could afford to go to college and make something of himself. Daddy paid for his college. Romney never knew what it was like to have to shop in Walmart because he couldn’t afford to shop at Neiman Marcus or whatever high end shops the extremely wealthy shop. He never knew what it was like to have eat boxed mac a roni and cheese, or ramen noodles or tubed hamburger or canned corn because he couldn’t afford the gormet, organic foods… Romney never knew what it was it like to choose whether to pay the electric bill or buy food for his family. No. Romney has no idea what it is like to be an ordinary American. Sure he was a success and that’s the American dream, but his success wasn’t about building up his community nor did he choose a career that the community could benefit from like a doctor, or community organizer or a sociologist or plumber or a garbage man… Romney’s career choice was about tearing down the community and pocketing the profits.

      Obama, on the other hand, was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth… he knew what it was like to rob Peter to pay Paul… He knew what it was like to desire something and not be able to have it. Obama paid for his college through scholarships and student loans that he was still paying on when he published his books. His writing and publishing eventually brought him millions and made him a wild success. So yes, he understands the ordinary American because he’s been there and he also understands the desire to own the American Dream because he succeeded by his own hand. Obama went from nothing to the President of the United States. I’d say he has Romney beat there, too.

In fact as a Mormon, i bet Romney has experienced more hard ‘poor people work’ than you have. Mormons do a ton of hard work almost every week, for free! It’s called service. It’s a way of life for most Mormons, especially ones in leadership positions like Romney has been for years at a time. I bet he has not only washed his own clothes by hand, but also someone elses (have you done that? prolly havent even done your own, and yet here you are a judging him) He also went on a mission to another country for two whole years of his young life, where he had to live on a very limited budget (out of money he had saved up beforehand) and almost no personal items (besides clothes, etc.) as he taught and served other people for free! Im sure he had a ton of mac n cheese during this time. But youre prolly right about no Walmart there though. Most likely didnt even have access to that during that time. i guess he is a horrible person and should never be president.

Contextual reasoning seems to be difficult for you folks on the far left to grasp. Or are you just a member of the media? If there wasn’t something embarrassing to the President in his college records why won’t he let anyone see them? Even if it is “just” GPA, were his grades less than what they would need to be to be allowed to enter Harvard? Would it lead people to think he got into an Ivy League school on less than his own merits? But don’t you worry yourself about such things.

Not only did he graduate in the top 10% (magna cum laude) which is a known FACT!!!, he received offers from some of the top law firms in the country (which you could not receive if you did not have those stellar grades). He also could have done a Supreme Court clerkship–reserved for only the best of the best. He chose to do public service. As a Harvard Law School graduate myself,I now understand why Harvard Law School has abandoned a grading system (it is pass/fail now) so that companies, perspective employers, people, and the public don’t get bogged down with debates such as this—….clearly President Obama is very intelligent and has a demonstrated history of success in all phases of his life!!! By the way, I think that Central Casting Comment (first comment) says it all…..and really speaks to heart of this poster….I guess you are saying that women and minorities need not apply (after all we would not fit Central Castings profile of the perfect commander-in-Chief)….

This EO seals now and forever (there is the provision for former Presidents which he will thankfully be some day)any record he deems to include – his medical records, his school records, his birth records,his passport records, etc.
      He will not release his Harvard records, his Columbia College records, or his Occidental College records. He will not even release his Columbia College thesis.
      All his legislative records from the Illinois State Senate are missing and he claims his scheduling records during those State Senate years are lost as well. In addition, no one can find his school records for the elite K-12 college prep school, Punahou School, he attended in Hawaii.

      So when you ask “what is your problem”, I would say to you, why is none of this a concern to you?

      It’s funny that the Liberals are so concerned with what Mitt Romney has done with his money and insist on him providing all his tax records, yet there is no concern that as Obamas first act as President he immediately sealed all of his records. But he is transparent. LOL

        If you read EO 13489, it does seal presidential records. This is pretty standard and if you follow the link at the bottom of the EO it will take you to the EO from George W. Bush that does the same but with longer times to review requests.

        http://fas.org/sgp/obama/presidential.html

        Presidential records are specifically records pertaining to the president’s term. Personal Records would be what you are suggesting he sealed on January 21, 2009. If you read the NARA’s definition of the two you will see the EO has nothing to do with the latter.

I am not so sure if America still represents what our founding fathers proclaimed it to.

  7. Why are we all comparing Obama to Romney? Obama is done after this year. Let’s compare Romney to other potential 2016 candidates. Also, let’s keep it in mind that Romney hasn’t announced his candidacy and may not run again. He probably shouldn’t. Even though he may have the potential to be a great president, he will inevitably lose. America has decided how they feel about him, some know the actual facts and still hate him but most just hate him on principe while remaining completely uneducated about real issues.

He’s a Chickenhawk of the highest degree. Remember when asked about his sons lack of service on the campaign trail? He said they are serving the country by helping to elect me.

Yes, he’s probably one of the most decent human beings you will ever meet. But I don’t like his politics. His philosophy seems to be: Hey, I’m an accomplished businessman, I can do big government better than the Democrats. Vote for me and the state will take care of you smarter and more efficiently.

    For those of use who know that government is a necessary evil and not a benevolent mother, we recognize that Romney’s political philosophy is not good for the individual, not good for liberty, and not good for the prosperity of the nation.

    • His philosophy is less government. His philosophy is if you don’t have money, don’t spend it, or you’ll go bankrupt like businesses do. His philosophy is not to have the state take care of you, but to get out of the way so you can take care of yourself. The state can not take care of everyone. Once they run out of the “drive to work” of the American people because they are no longer rewarded for their hard work any more, there will be no one to pay the high taxes required to pay for universal healthcare, welfare, government assistance, etc. Not that there’s enough money to pay for that right now, because we just borrow it.

      Overall, I want someone in the government who knows how to unify diverse individuals in a common cause. I want someone who will not spend what we can never pay back, and spend less than we bring in. I want someone with experience doing this with their own family, organizations, and possibly states. I see Mr. Romney as one person who can do this. I would prefer that we as a country do everything we can to promote self-reliance, and encourage less reliance on the country/government.

Who wants that YUK. Don’t hate success embrace success you might learn something.

      Take responsibility for your actions don’t blame the other guy. When he took over the Olympics he didn’t say well these other guys left me this mess. He said this is what we have to work with lets see what needs to be done and do it and did. You never heard the whining well that’s what we were left with. He took it and ran it all the way to the finish line.

      I really don’t think you will hear well Obama did this and didn’t do that he will say here is what we have lets make it work if he is not given the chance we will never know. Hell he may not even run but one thing I know for sure is Obama wont run again no matter how much you love or hate him.

He has ruined this country, he has done a piss poor job with all these events that have taken place over seas. You think he’s a classy man. Tell me why he didn’t show up for the people who were killed in Paris, and that wouldn’t be the only time he’s neglected to show respect to other countries. In the state he’s put our country in we need as many allies as we can get and I assure you he is burning a lot of bridges. I just can’t believe people can still be so oblivious to the horrible things happening in our country because this man can’t figure out what the hell he’s doing. Watch a little bit of news and you might see what’s going on, everyone is so worried about his past and Romney’s past, what does it even matter at this point. We need to focus on the future of this country and I think a business man like Romney himself would do a fine job of getting this country back on its feet to functioning society.

Mitt grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth, but according to this he became a success all on his own. Don’t forget that he has made all the money that he had made on his own by starting a company that buys struggling companies shuts down their American factories and ships operations overseas. It’s basic economics. Buy a struggling company for cheap, and make it profitable by firing anyone who mashes enough money to support themselves. From there you just have to pay your new employees slave wages, and you get to keep the difference. You just can’t think too much about the lives you are destroying in the process.

  26. Obama is a man of the partisan left. His mentors were Frank Marshall Davis and Jeremiah Wright, so racial resentment is also a big factor. He spent his formative years in Hawaii with Davis as his mentor, then he went to college and law school on two of the most left-wing campuses (Columbia and Harvard) and in two of the most left-wing metro areas (New York and Boston) in America, then he spent 20 years in Wright’s church, soaking up the hatred.

    He married a woman who thinks the same way but she has been more vocal about her racial resentment and her loathing for this country.

    Like everyone else on the extreme left, and everyone else who marinated for 30 years in African-American racial resentment, Obama hates the military, hates the intelligence community, and hates the police, even though he loves the enormous power they give to our government. Everybody in top level leadership in the Democratic Party shares that hatred and that love.

    Consider how much attention they’ve paid to the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, and to the case of Henry Louis Gates, the black Harvard professor who was locked out of his house, then briefly detained for breaking into it because he didn’t have any ID. Consider that they didn’t send anybody to march in the streets in solidarity with the people of France after the Charlie Hebdo murders. Even though Eric Holder was in Paris at the time. Benjamin Netanyahu was there, marching in the street with 15 other world leaders, but nobody from the Democratic Party of the United States.

    Consider how little attention they’ve paid to the deaths of so many, many police officers at the hands of black men, and to the death of General Harold Greene in Afghanistan, the first American general or admiral killed by enemy fire since 1970 in Vietnam. Flags were flown at half staff across the nation after the death of Nelson Mandela, but not for General Greene.

  28. When Romney was getting his vompany started, he was asked by his church to act as unpaid pastor or “bishop” to the congregation he belonged to. He devoted 30 hrs a week, unpsid, to serving the members of his congregation, providing financial aid to the unemployed, and leading teams of members to renovate tge homes of disabled members, visiting members in their homes. After fivenyears, he was asked to srrve as president over several congregations, including one that had many Haitian immigrants, and another made of Cambodian refugees. His being able to speak French was very useful when meeting with those members of his church.

    He secretly paid for sll the milk used by residents of the Boston shelter for homeless veterans. When his Dad passed away, Romney donated the entire inheritance to the business college at Brigham Young University. When the teenage daughter of one of his partners went misding in New York City, he shut down the company and took all the employees to NYC to help search for her, posting a reward and hitting the streets with posters until they found her and got her to a hospital in time to save her life from a drug overdose.

    The Romneys raised their five sons by themselves, not with nannie or cooks. They went on vacation in a station wagon, not a private jet or a yacht.

Nothing is secret in this religion. If you don’t believe me ask any LDS misionary or member (including children who choose to become members at 8 years old) and they can answer almost any question you ask. They believe in helping others and following in Christs footsteps, similar to many otherbreligions today. Please do not make accusations where more knolwedge is clearly needed.

Romney because his political ideation was appropriate for the mid-to-late 1950’s (check the hair). His image is based on the premise that we want to go back to a BeaverCleaveresque America that never really existed, and that we can/want to do so during the age of high-speed internet. Obama because he served a total of 6 months in the Senate before people started talking about him being a presidential candidate. He was VP material at best at the time, and has proven to have not been qualified for even that job since. I will say this though, he has kept from starting World War 3 so far, which I assure you is far better than Romney would have been able to manage.

  47. Gee, I know Mitt and a few members of his family, and, I can guarantee you, this article and the responses would make him grasp his sides and die laughing.

    • The point of the article is both humor and irony. I would hope he would get a kick out of it.

  50. Except the fact that Obama is a classic liberal and Romney is a Reagan republican, they do share a lot of outward character traits. (Romney’s record is s little more conservative than Reagan’s though)

  52. I like him but he blew it when Candy Crawley stepped in. He was a chicken and did not challenge what she was saying…. And that one big misstep cost him the election… SadlyNow he is against Trump. At least Trump will fight back.

  53. The truth is Romney isn’t running for president. So, what is the point of this article and all the fighting over? Have you seen the candidates running for 2016? America is doomed. I don’t even know if I can go to the polls this November and vote. Wish we could get a redo for the current running candidates.

  55. Sorry Craig, Romney is an embarrassment to the Church and and the members. He is a typical politician. Glad he is not running.

    • While I don’t agree with all of Romney’s political views, I believe he loves this country and is doing what he believes is right. I won’t judge his religious standing because I don’t know his heart.

  56. Mitt Romney is quite a guy but I cannot support his decision to denounce a candidate nominee that has gone through the entire process for the Republican party and for him not to be 100% behind the nominee

    • Even Paul Ryan is anti-Trump. Being my aginst Trump is a sign Romney is a moral and rational human being, not a Republican pawn.
