  • 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, 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 . 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 more than 2,000 stores and employs more than 90,000 people.
  • In 1994, he ran for Senator of Massachusetts, but lost to Teddy Kopechne Kennedy.

  • In 2002, he was elected Governor of the State of Massachusetts, and eliminated a $1.5 billion deficit.
  • Bain Capital also worked to perform the same kinds of business miracles as they did with Staples with companies like Domino’s, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot and many others.
  • He was an unpaid volunteer Mormon missionary in Paris for more than 2 years.

  • He gave his entire inheritance (from his father) to charity.
  • 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!
  • 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 wealthy people.
  • And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave more than $4 million to charity; almost 19% of his income.
  • Obama gave 1%

  • Romney will show us his social security card.
  • Romney will show us his law degree.
  • Romney will show us his draft notice.
  • Romney will show us his medical records.
  • Romney will show us his income tax records.
  • Romney will show us he has nothing to hide.
  • Romney has been selected as the best representative from the present field of Republicans and here’s what we know:
  • We know what religion he is, and that he won’t desecrate the flag, bow down to foreign powers, or squander my money on vacations.
  • We know he has the ability to turn around 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.
  • Romney can and will talk to 3rd graders WITHOUT a TELEPROMPTER!
  • Romney 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 USA .

“If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you were not a racist, you will have to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you are not an idiot.”

Vote AGAINST Obama; the worst President, the most fraudulent President in the history of the United States.  Also, a Socialist, Muslim President.  If you cast your vote for Obama, you are definitely one or both >>  an idiot and/or someone  who supports the continued destruction of the nation.
