11. Be prepared for Beck to try and prop Romney up.
My wife works for a company with a very strong Mormon management chain. She's worked in a number of medium to large companies and she's seen her share of "boys" clubs" in which the men in the organization help each other, even passing over better candidates for promotions, etc.
But she tells me this company sets the new bar. It is a Mormon boys club. She watches the Mormon men get quickly promoted well beyond their ability, often taking on an "assistant" who does the real work. The sense of many is that this preferential treatment comes straight out of their shared religion. Its just what they do.
I continue to bet that Beck's job going forward will be to try and mitigate the Mormon issue for Romney.
23. He is from Mass, he won't make it in the Repub primaries.
Oh, I knew of old Mitt when he was the governor next door. Thankfully our Repub gov in Connecticut, Jodi Rell, seemed more mild in comparison. He tried to act like a moderate Repub but he wasn't. But for the Repubs, they will see two things. Mormon and from Massachusetts. He is a goner and won't be the nominee.
25. He drove from MA to (I think) Canada, with his dog in a crate on top

Shallow - yes. I know some non aligned, non- political people this would impact.
Seriously - your list is far better. He has changed positions 180 degrees on many issues - and I would hope that his not supporting the bailouts would erase whatever connection his dad being MI's governor would have.
As to what he did with Bain Capital, they might be able to connect him to the hated Wall Street, but I wonder if the details on his destroying jobs could be explained easily enough.
I don't think it will be a problem, as I think he will lose the primaries.
