The incredible stories of character the media isnít telling you about Mitt Romney

About three weeks ago, Glenn asked TheBlaze to find the stories about Mitt Romney that the media isn’t telling and Americans should know. He was fed up with the pictures being painted about Romney through the mainstream media and campaign ads. In 2008 all conservatives really wanted was the media to research Barack Obama like they do everyone on the right. Is it too much to ask for the American people to know a little background information on the man they may elect to be their President.

The history being shown about Mitt Romney on the news has been so far from the truth and so insanely trivial that Glenn started to believe, “this guy is squeaky clean.”

“I asked my staff to go find the stuff on Romney, the good stuff,” Glenn explained. “Because if there is no bad stuff, I’ll bet you there’s good stuff out there that nobody’s telling the story on.”

As it was pointed out by a few at the RNC and became evident after Glenn’s staff began telling him the stories they were finding, Romney isn’t the kind of guy that likes to talk about the things he has done to help others. On Friday, Glenn is going to spend a full hour sharing the incredible stories his staff found. He will also be joined by some of the people whose lives were changed (for the better) by Mitt Romney, most of whom had never even met him.

This morning on radio Glenn gave a preview of what you can expect to see on Friday’s program. He shared a story of a V.A. hospital in Boston that Mitt Romney stopped at while on the campaign trail running against Ted Kennedy. Ted Kennedy had made a thirty minute stop at the same location a couple of weeks prior.

After touring the V.A. hospital, Mitt asked to look at their books. After he spent forty minutes going through their books, he told them, “You run a very good place, very tight. Very good.” Romney asked to go on another tour of the hospital, and after spending an hour and forty minutes there, the last question he asked was, “So what… what do you ‑‑ what are you lacking? What do you need help with?”

The response? “Milk.”

Since the press was around, snapping photos and asking questions, Glenn explained that Romney did a really awkward joke where he said, “maybe we should teach everyone here how to milk a cow.”

Of course, that’s all the press cared to hear and ran with a story that claims “Mitt Romney says veterans should have to milks cows.”

“This is where it gets good,” Glenn started. “Romney calls him up the next morning.”

Romney first apologizes to the man who runs the hospital for any problems the attention from the press jumping on his words brought to the hospital. He next offers to help with the milk situation.

“Friday comes, and the milkman comes,” Glenn continues. “This is what the vets needed – they needed 7,000 pints of milk a week. Milkman shows up, 7,000 pints. The head of the V.A. hospital asks, “Where did all this come from?” He [the milkman] said “an anonymous donor.” Now, the guy didn’t put it together.”

Glenn explains that when the next week rolled around, the milkman shows up again, and continued to show up every week for two years. After two years of delivering 7,000 pints of milk a week to the hospital, as the milkman is retiring, the man finally gets him to reveal the anonymous donor.

It’s Mitt Romney.

“Mitt Romney was writing a personal check and didn’t want anybody to know for two years and provided the vets with all of their milk in Boston,” Glenn explained to listeners this morning.

When Romney became governor, he sent a bill through to help the V.A. hospital – it was down to the dollar. This man told Glenn, “if you want a mechanic on the economy? It’s this guy. He [Mitt Romney] went and he looked at the books first. He wanted to see what we were doing and how effective we were. He said then, beyond that, the milk. He did that and he didn’t want anything ‑‑ he didn’t want anyone to know.”

No one is telling America these stories – but Friday, Glenn will.

“The stories you’ll hear on Friday are incredible. Our people found them. And we didn’t send investigators. Nobody’s going through anybody’s garbage. We just started to look. And the stories we found, I’m telling you, I apologize to Mitt Romney and his family for being so blind and not seeing who he was. That does not mean I’m going to agree with all of his policies, but I am blind. I have been saying we need to find George Washington, a man of true character and honor and decency. When you watch the show on Friday, you will ‑‑ I’m convinced you will feel exactly the same way I do.”

This Friday on TheBlaze TV, Glenn will be joined by this man and many others to tell the stories about Mitt Romney the media won’t tell you – the stories you’ve been longing to hear about a politician in this country. Don’t miss it!

Now where are the people who will vote strictly on religious lines?

He’s what we have at the moment, and we should support him. Hopefully in four years, Palin will decide to run for president. We all know she’ll go on the attack immediately should representation in Congress go 50/50, especially if they do everything they can to hamper the economy.

Yes, I am especially impressed by Mittens’ charity toward unborn children and children adopted by sodomites. Nothing sweeter than abortion and child grooming and rape! We’s all equal ‘ceptin’ the childrun. Deys up for grabs.

Glenn’s exaggerating again. The milk story has indeed already been “shared with America.” It’s from the book, The Real Romney....Beck didn’t dig it up himself.

Yup..Beck is good at that. Re-reporting old news and claiming he was the first to report it. Well, maybe he was the first to re-report the old news, but he wasnt the first to report it.

Beck is a opportunist, and is cashing in.

If you have send people out to find something good to say about someone it is pretty sad. He went and visited a VA hospital because Kennedy did and it was good for his campaign. What does that say about him. If he was an anonymous donor you would not know about that is what it means. Is he a man of his word? He promised “I will be better for gays than Ted Kennedy.” “I will never infringe upon a woman’s right to choose.” I am sure as Bishop he did many good things as do officials of other churches. If he did not want anyone to know about them he would not have had them featured at the Republican Convention.

I doubt that many other chuch officials spend their own money to keep a veteran’s hospital supplied with 7,000 pints of milk every 2 weeks for 2 years, anonymously. Another thread where all the nasties immediately jump on trying to denigrate a man that is more charitable and humble than the lot of them.

It is not an anonymous donation if you know the donor. Do you really believe that Romney is more charitable and humble than officials of other churches. Did he take a vow of poverty? Did he dedicate his life to serving others, what about his 25 year as a businessman. Is it humble to have a video of your good deeds shown at a national convention. Why did he stop after 2 yrs, the cost was probably less than one of his wives cars. The lot of them,as you refer to officials of other churches, serve for life and do more good than Romney does with his money. There is more to charity than money. Many other church officials raise money and feed the needy daily year after year. It is sad that you have to denigrate other churches to make Romney look good.

First, it was an ANONYMOUS donation, ding dong, and no one knew about it until the postman retired and spilled the beans to someone who pressed him on the matter. Not Romney. Mitt told no one. Geez.

Second, Romney never spoke about his good deeds. Only when forced into doing so by his political campaign because the Dems were constantly calling him on TV and otherwise, a cold, heartless businessman. Then Mitt was forced to allow his good deeds to be made public to counteract the Dem offensive against him as a heartless man. You know that as well as I do. You just don’t like Romney and want to think of him as a cold, heartless man yourself, most likely because he is a Mormon and you don’t like Mormons. Ok then, don’t vote for him. Long live Obama. Obama is your man. Enjoy the next 4 years. Too bad you’ll take me down with you, which I resent to high heavens. Thanks a bunch.

You seem to believe that anyone that is critical of Romney is anti Mormon. Sorry but that card was played last election. Either vote for Romney or be called a bigot. Romney has donated to Planed Parenthood as well do you consider that another of his good deeds? Is he a man of his word? He stated he would NEVER infringe upon a woman’s right to choose. He also said he would be better for gays than Ted Kennedy. Yes I think abortion, and those that donate to that cause are cold and heartless. Ding dong a man that brags to a nation about his good deed for political purposes is not humble, more like an opportunist. If his political campaign forced him to make a decision he felt was wrong what does that say about his leadership qualities. It is too bad you have to close your eyes to vote for him I just need to hold my nose.
