Romney's black hair natural, not dyed
Boston.com ^ | 03/23/2007

MILWAUKEE, Wis. --Don't expect Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to endorse hair dye products anytime soon.

The former governor of Massachusetts laid to rest on Friday any rumors that he dyes his hair black. His sleek dark coif, with just a hint of gray on his sideburns, is completely natural, he told reporters following a fundraiser in Milwaukee.

"I don't dye it. I don't color it and you can take a real close camera shot and see there's a lot of gray mixed in with all that black," said a laughing Romney.

Earlier this month Romney turned 60, an age when many men are forced to decide between coloring their hair or living gray.

Though Romney hasn't had to think about that just yet -- or so he says -- his campaign advisers worry that his hair is too perfect, according to an internal campaign document that recently surfaced in the media.

I believe it. I am almost 53 and my hair is still dark. And full. And no bald spot.

It's sad that the media actually thinks that whether anyone's hair color is natural or not is important.

Are you kidding?

Do that and the MSM will be posting a lackey around the clock dogging his every step just to try and catch him in a lie about whether or not he dyes his hair.

Of course that same MSM didn't think it was important enough to dog Clinton's every step while he was stepping out on Hillary or snorting coke up his nose or even care he lied before a grand jury.

That age was 30 for me. :(

"None of your business" is red meat to the sycophant media

Think about it: it is the media's business to disseminate "news" they think is important

Whether it is actually "news" or not

Okay, his hair is naturally black. But is his skin naturally orange, like John Kerry's? We wait with bated breath.

Fred Thomson almost has no hair--but I like him.
Duncan Hunter's hair looks like he doesn't comb it some times--I like him.

Looks like the only one Mitt has something in common with is Edwards--the Breck Girl.

Edward's hair looks like it used to belong to a Televangelist.

It's sad when natural vs. dyed hair is considered newsworthy.

When my dad passed away in his early 70s he had very little hair, but none of it was gray.

I'm sooooo glad to know that Romney's hair is natural. I know it'll make a big difference in how I'll vote!/s
