    This Is Real Character
    Mitt Romney:

    · 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

    · 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....

    This is real character vs....well you know what!

    Romney's enormous privilege in growing up with this father's wealth and political influence enabled him to not have to work while he was in school, or at all. In fact, Ann Romney has frequently recounted how they "made a living" cashing in Mitt's stocks and bonds while they were in college.

    The majority of Romney's philanthropy (if you can call it that) goes to his Church which then uses that money to - among other things - engage in politics and electioneering, including fighting to strip the OP's civil rights.

    Romney is a well-documented bully from high school to bullying a woman into carrying a child to term to bullying reporters on trail.

    And that's without even getting into his inhumane treatment of the family dog.

    From my youth the importance of community service, was imprinted on me by the LDS faith. Albeit I was to hand in my resignation to the church some years ago. One of the things that is still with me today, and I put to practic is my sense of community service, to the point I have dedicated the past 25 years to community service. I also think it's were I was to also apply to my life the way I vote, by putting country before self.

    JPtheBITCH saidThe fact that some people consider Romney a man of character is symptomatic of every single fucking thing that's gone wrong with this country.

    There is nothing to admire or like about him. Nothing.



    Millions beg to differ, but keep telling yourself there is nothing to admire about him. Doesn't make it true.
