    :clap2: Mitt Romney is running for President of the United States.
    He was Governor of Massachusettes.
    He's a Mormon and proud of it. Now that he is running for President he made a big deal about it in Texas.
    When he was in Massachusettes, however, it seemed not to be a polite topic of conversation.
    Mitt is not his first name. That's the name he uses as a first name. If you detect a small amount of dishonesty in that you would not be alone.
    His first name is Willard - Willard Mitt Romney.
    Do you recall the movie 'Willard' with Ernest Borgnine?
    It was about a social misfit named 'Willard' who had an attraction for rats.
    He talked to the rats and fed them.
    It's a horror story.
    Sort of what I imagine having Willard 'Mitt' Romney in the White House.
    His father had been Governor of Michigan.
    His father was born in Colonia Dublán, Galeana, in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
    That didn't stop his father from trying to run for President in 1968. Obviously - he didn't win.
    His mother, an ex-actress, was born in Utah and tried to become one of the United States Senators from Michigan. She lost.
    Willard 'Mitt' Romney's great grandfather ran from the United States to live in Mexico because he was a polygamous Mormon and wanted to avoid the laws of the United States of America.
    Well - the Romney's are back in a big way.
    Willard 'Mitt' Romney is no stranger to spreading the word - he is related directly to Parley P. Pratt who was one of the original member of the 'Quorum of Twelve Apostles'.
    When Willard 'Mitt' Romney says, "I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers -- I will be true to them and to my beliefs." don't you think you better listen?

    Obama's father is a Muslim who currently has multiple wives in Africa. The Romney family may have had multiple wives 100 years ago but the Obama family still practices this today.

    Also I'd rather my president be named Willard Mitt Romney then Barak Hussein Obama

    You mean Barack Obama's father Barack Obama Sr, who died in the early 80s has multiple wives in Africa?

    I find the fact that he "currently has multiple wives in Africa," awfully surprising since he's dead.

    Will Smith (of "I am Legend" fame) is also actually a Willard.

    Oh he's dead, I thought I read Obama went to visit him in Africa recently. Still if your great grandfather did something it hardly has any revelance on a person since very few people meet them at all, but what your father does does have revelance on a person. I always hear people bring up polagamy in Romneys past as a negative but nobody touches it regarding Obama.

    :rofl:
    Assuming that is the case, and I am not going to check, your example person uses 'Will' as his first name. He does not obscure his first name completely by not using it. The correct and legal thing for Willard Mitt Romney to do if he did not want the name would be to remove it. The way it is now any search of public records for 'Mitt Romney' would not return 'Willard Mitt Romney' which is why it is illegal to use a different name in order to deceive.

    It is a common business notion. 'Willard Mitt Romney' should have been using his first name 'Willard' all along - but do you think he would be running for President right now if he had used 'Willard' instead of 'Mitt'?

    We'll never know but thankfully, we will also never know what it will be like to have him in the White House. The problem is that he got anywhere near it.

    You cannot change a name for an unlawful or fraudulent purpose. Not using a first name because you don't like it doesn't fall within such a catagory. It's certainly not illegal for him to do so by any stretch of the imagination.
