    Got this in an email...I have no idea on the validity of all the claims. I highlited some of the more interesting quips.



    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.

    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.

    He will show us he has nothing to hide.

    My family has a tradition of every other first born son going by his middle name, as every first born is named after his grandfather.

    obama is a 1%er, but he's black, so it's almost ok, since he's white on the inside.

    It doesn't.

    If Romney were a Dem OL'Campass would be falling all over him.

    Since he's a Rep he's the leader of the 1%.

    Of cours Barry's a 1%er as well. But hey, he's a Dem so its okay.

    Thanks for passing this on. I did not know that he was unpaid as Governor nor did I know that he had donated his inheritance from his father.

    Same here...I didn't know he was President of the Olymipcs either.
    The question is...why is the Romney camp not exploiting all of this?

    Think about it...while he was Governor he took NO SALARY. While Obama was Senator, his wife accepted two cushy board member jobs - EACH - over $100k.
    That is gold!

    you didn't know about the Olympics??

    ok

    well when big 0 failed to get the Olympics, some gopers dragged out the fact that Mitt ran them once so the dncers mentioned that the region, as always, lost money.

    Man, if I sucked the life out of American businesses I could do things with no salary too. It'd look great on a resume.

    What does the chain letter have to do with Obama's charity giving?

    I dont see Obama mentioned in that letter.

    It's always funny to watch LOLberals attempt to deflect. The reverse deflect is even more hysterical.
