Email I received from Romney supporter. Total BS.

You may not like/approve the data, and thatís OK, but at least they are available. A refreshing concept.


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 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.

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 birth certificate

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.

He will show us his income tax records.

He will show us he has nothing to hide.

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 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.



You should know the difference between the men running for America's top office.



Does Obama/Biden deserve 4 more years?



Pass this on...Stupid is what stupid does!

1. HOw about all the companies he destroyed??

Or heck how about his tax returns??

He hasn't showed those at all.

Oh and who shows their Social Security Card?? I was always told to hide it in a safe place. That way people wouldn't steal my identity.

How many times does President Obama have to show his birth certificate for these racist pricks??

How do we know Rmoney never took drugs?? I mean he was in France & Europe in the 60's.

Rmoney has nothing trustworthy going for him at all

4. He/she's little note is so full of errors and misconceptions, I'd have to quit my job...

 

...take 10 amphetamines and spend weeks straightening out his/her bullshit.

The Man is a Sociopath. Obama is not. Period

7. Send this back.

"He will show us his income tax records."
OK we've seen Obama's returns for the last 12 years. So far Mitt's only given up his 2010 return and an estimate of his 2011 return. We're waiting.

"He will show us his draft notice."
And he can show us his pictures of how he spent his deferment biking around France while someone else went to war in his place.


"He will show us he has nothing to hide."
That is if he can remember where he's got it all hidden.

Oh yeah I remember the last MBA President and the assurances of how he was going to turn the country around.
Stupid is what stupid does is right.

8. Charity?

Since when is the LDS church a charity? I've never heard of anyone (not even a mormon) receiving charity from the LDS church. But I have heard that the LDS church help bankroll Prop 8 in California. Is that what charities do these days?

11. I have no doubt that "donating" millions to the LDS is more of an investment...

.they build mega malls, and make billions and billions each year. I have zero doubt that RMoney turned around is making a profit off the earnings from his donations... it's a racket.

...to wash the stink of unearned wealth off Mitt Romney. This e-mail is discussing the mitt from some alternate universe.

10. "he will show us his income tax records"......

um.... when? He will show us he has nothing to hide.... oh yeah....

Romney not only attended a church which denied Black Human Beings were equal to Whites, he acted as a missionary in another country (representing the US rather than serving in the military) trying to recruit people to that religion. The church didn't alter this public prejudice until 1978 -
http://exmormon.org/d6/drupal/blacks1

He didn't need to inherit his father's money, he was a wealthy man already, more than his father was.

12. Oh where do we start???

The thing that is so telling about this email, which is designed for the least educated out there, is that it has ZERO comparative info about President Obama.

It's just complete BS, but I know of several people who will forward this to their friends and think it's real. Of course, most of us spend too much time researching Snopes links to help out our clueless friends who send shit like that around or post it on Facebook.

Anyone with insomnia willing to go line by line and refute this bullshit???

13. Ask for proof of his chartiable contributions for 2011. Where are the tax returns?

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/01/29/wash-posts-parker-wildly-distorts-charitable-gi/186639

In fact, the Obamas spent a larger percentage of their income on taxes and charity in 2010 than the Romneys did in either 2010 or in 2011.

14. Hah! I believe I got that same email from my ultra-conservative father

Of course he bombards my inbox with stuff like this daily....many times a day, but what makes this funny is that he, and all the other teabaggers hated Rmoney almost as much as Pres O as little as a few months ago.

She suggested I send this to the person who sent me the original email. I sent the email to the Obama campaign and requested a rebuttal. Will see if I get a response. Thanks for the feedback.

We all know this is BS. The email has been sent to a bunch of people and the woman that sent it to me sent it to a number of people. It is being spread all over the place. It would be great to have a rebuttal for each inaccuracy posted.

20. All kinds of stupid in this one.

I will just point out that Willard HAS NOT shown us as many tax records as Obama; Obama HAS NOT given only 1% to charity in 2011; and that being a "Community Organizer" is not the bad thing this poor, desperate Rombot wants it to be.

Now, that last line -- there is a serious lack of self-awareness going on in this email.

Looks like this email might have originated on the Union County Republican Central Committee website.
