    Mitt Romney, Friend in Need
    Good Deed Doer

    By: Dan McLaughlin (Diary) | September 17th, 2012 at 06:15 PM

    The Obama campaign has spent months laboring to get this election to be about anything but the president’s record and the candidates’ policy proposals. As often happens in campaigns, this requires painting caricatures with no connection to the facts. The Obama camp has worked hard to make Mitt Romney out as a bad, unfeeling, cold-hearted rich guy who only cares about his own bottom line. Romney himself hasn’t helped the matter by being such a stiff, tin-eared speaker who actually looks and sounds like a walking stereotype; political communication is not among his skills. But the reality is that Romney’s biography shows him to be a real-life Good Samaritan who has walked the walk of caring for his fellow man not only with his own money but with his own time and his own hands. I’ve had my share of political complaints about Romney, but on this score, the critics should be ashamed of themselves: Romney is a genuine role model of what private citizens can do to assist those in need.
    Click the links above, all of which have much longer accounts of these and other stories of Romney’s good works.

    You may choose to dislike Romney’s politics, his policies, his ham-handed speeches. But what a better country we would have if half the people attacking him now could compile half of the list above. Compared to Barack Obama, who had half his house paid for by a slumlord convicted of bribing politicians, I’d rather depend on Mitt Romney if I really needed a friend when the chips were down.

    Great article. I don't think I've ever read of Obama doing something like this.. Unless it was just for the cameras.

    Good a time as any to re-post Romney's convention intro. Not only is the guy a true humanitarian, but a great family man as well. I particularly like the photos of him goofing with his kids.

    Romney is a stone cold dick. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

    It's hilarious watching right wingers canonize a guy they wouldn't have wanted representing them as a talking head on fox news four years ago.

    :rofl:
