Why Mitt Romney is Unlikeable!
A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being "likeable or that he doesn't "relate well" to people. Frankly, we struggled to understand why. So after much research, we dhave come up with a Top Ten List to explain this "unlikablility"
Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:
1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesman like aura. Looks like every central casting's #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.
2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.
3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)
4. Can't speak in a fake, southern, "black preacher voice" when necessary.
5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School, and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.
6. Doesn't smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today's America?
7. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!
8. Has a family of five great sons....and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that "choice" deserves America's scorn.
9. Oh yes.....he's a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.
10. And one more point.....pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans.
--I guess that's because he made that money HIMSELF.....as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad.
--Apparently, he didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unreliable to Americans.
--My goodness, it's a strange world, isn't it?

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.

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 he has nothing to hide.
Mitt Romney's background, experience and trustworthiness show him to be a great leader and an excellent citizen for President of the United States.
You may not think that Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected. At least I know what religion he is, and that he won't desecrate the flag, bow down to foreign powers, or practice fiscal irresponsibility.
I know he has the ability to turn this financial debacle that the current regime has gotten us into. We won't like all the things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney's background can do it. But, on the minus side, he never was a "Community Organizer", never took drugs or smoked pot, never got drunk, did not associate with communists or terrorists, nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US. [Oooops!]
This is an email I received from my Aunt....thought it would do well here....
Good job, but it’s “stake” not “state” president.
That’s a very nice list, thank you.
I was all for Newt, but the more I hear about Romney, he is quite a man. No wonder the left fears him so much. There is no one that can truly compete with Romney.
So he spent his Mormon Missionary time in France. That means only one thing - his French is flawless. Some of the best linguists we had in the AF were Mormons who did missionary work in their target language. I bet he makes John F. Kerry sound like a tourist trying to speak French. Doesn’t matter, I am still going to vote for . . . . the French speaking Mormon!
I don’t believe he ever got a draft notice. As a man born on 3/12/47 he pulled a 300 in the draft lottery so he never would have been drafted.
But...but...Kerry speaks French with his family!
And that arrogant lazy, lying pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave is likeable?
That certainly explains why he is not liked.
They don’t make ‘em like that any more.
(Never did make too many.)
We have the right men at the top of the ticket, folks. It took me awhile to come around to that fact, but I`m convinced no other candidate could`ve bitch-slapped Prince Barry the way Romney did.
He is generous with his money - which is impressive.
He is generous with his personal time and talents - which is much more impressive.
Check out O'Bastard's body language at the 20 second mark as Mitt mentions his 5 boys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgXyIjXtqn8 Mitt was blessed with his first son right after marriage. O'Bastard took 6 years to have his first, and they are all girls, a major embarassement in Muslim culture.
I still think a b!tch-slapping by Newt would have been far more gratifying. But the MSM’s ceaseless hectoring and snivelry would have eventually caused an embarassing meltdown from Gingrich, finishing him for good.
Slim as it is, the best hope for the Republic right now is Romney. He needs...the COUNTRY needs...our unified, dedicated support.
Bill Ayers and wife Bernardine Dohrn were both terrorists and communists. They are both very much still communists today, and are likely more dangerous now as both are employed as "educators"/university professors. "Reverend" Wright is also a communist (Black Liberation Theology is a bogus religion devised by communists decades ago)
So Romney eliminated the MA deficit while supposedly being “socialist”??
Looks like Jeff Head may have the best analysis of Romney afterall ;).
This is better than “not bad.”
My draft number was `8’ but I had already volunteered & later went to Vietnam, but if someone did not serve by staying within the law & did not support our enemies then that was fine with me.
Romney gets my vote hands down, it’s a lot more than just voting against Obama like I did in 2008.
I thought the “will show” section was the best and a slap in the face to a president who has been the most dishonest, deceptive, divisive, manipulative and untransparent in all of the history of the United States yet the Obama zombies cannot admit that their emporer has no clothes.
Hey, I didn’t know that! Guess I will have to vote for .... the person who speaks English with his family but could still put Kerry to shame - Mitt Romney!
They are not talking about the real Romney; they are talking about the caricature they’ve created. The Democrats expect their party and their media to keep everyone convinced that Romney is a rapacious capitalist who kills kittens for fun and hates poor people.
Yup. One of the big things in his canditacacy was an article about how genteel and sophisticated he was from (who knows or cares) magazine because they routinely spoke French when his family gathered for formal dinners or even family get togethers. I cringed when I read that and said it showed his phoniness.
I have always found Romney to be very likable .... one of the reasons for this is I believe he is moral and incorruptible .... the exact opposite of the sleazy reptile presently defiling the oval office.
There were a few things left off of your list so if you don’t mind I will add them.
I hope I did not miss any.
He will show us his birth certificate, his high school and college transcripts, his social security card, his law degree, his draft notice, and his medical records.
Wouldn’t that make a marvelous TV ad? Have them spread out on a big table and then show a bunch of reporters picking them up and looking them over.
Of course, that would make him a ‘birther’ and therefore, to the media, certifiably insane.
Didn’t he spend time in France when doing his required mormon missionary youth work? Wouldn’t it make sense to want to be able to speak French well?
Hey Wizard I was wondering if I could copy and paste and to put on some other poly forums where the fire isn’t so friendly.
Hope you don’t mind. Thats a great compilation of Mitts life resume.
And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income....Not to go off topic but when I saw what Biden donated to Charity my head almost exploded.
Just for comparison purposes: Obama gave 1% and Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%.
My wife and I are both retired and we do 'okay' but have to stick to a budget - like most families. Yet WE GAVE MORE to charities than millionaire Vice President, Joe Biden! I doubt I'll ever forget that lousy '$300.00 Dollars' the cheapskate 'donated'. Then to boot, he and his liberal ilk are determined to take more of our money in taxes to give away in welfare to deadbeats that they deem worthy of our money!
Like right now, WE'RE PAYING through our county real estate taxes money to prop up the crappy public transit system of Chicago's, the CTA. And we don't even live in the same fricken county!! That was snuck through the RAT Controlled state legislature in the dead of night.
You did great if your goal is to lie about Mormonism and to promote Christians leaving Christ and joining the anti-Christian cult of Mormonism.
Mormonism and Bishop Romney does not represent early America, they are the cult that led the federal government to start passing laws against them in 1862.
Forgive him, the resident spell checker is off this weekend and they couldn't find a replacement........sheesh
I hate to say this,well actually I don’t...I wonder if those girls really are Barry’s...
Since there is so little dirt on Mitt the Obamacamp will dig up any dirt on his business associates or acquaintances. Thus he’ll be guilty by association.
Spell checker wouldn’t have helped with that one as “state” was spelled correctly.
Hey, it’s not hugh or series, but I like to refer to things by their correct names.
Furthermore, the reason why LDS administrative regions are called “stakes” is interesting in itself, and thus worthy of a gander.
If you’ll look back to my original posts, I was talking about John Kerry speaking French at family gatherings.
