Why Mitt Romney is Unlikable
President Obama, July 13, 2012
"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.
There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to
create the unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you
to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a
business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
MITT ROMNEY IS UNLIKABLE!
A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being "likable"
or that he doesn't "relate well" to people. Frankly, we struggled to
understand why. So after much research, we have come up with a Top Ten
List to explain this "un-likablility."
Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:
1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura.
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, "black preacher voice" when
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
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
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 unrelatable to Americans.
It's a strange world, isn't it?
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.

After high school, he spent 30 months in France as a Mormon
After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School
simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar exam, but never worked as
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 stake 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. And 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; what was required of all other
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
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 those who hate
this country, nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God
to damn the US.
Is it a priority to have likeable president or does this country need
a president that will solve our current economic and outrages debt
crisis just for starters?
