Times-Union readers want to know: Is it true that Mitt Romney closed down his firm, Bain Capital, and flew 30 workers to New York to look for the missing daughter of one of his colleagues? The fact-finding groups PolitiFact.com, Snopes.com and Truthorfiction.com all rate this as true, and media reports of the day confirm much of the details of the viral email.

Does Mitt Romney?
Look at post 14, is the one and only time in his 65 years of life that he ever ran into a teen running off for a few days, when it happened to such a prominent, powerful, Mormon and fellow executive, was the response even reasonable, or incredible and way over the top, a bizarre, expensive stunt to ingratiate himself to Gay and to make a Mormon point?
Did Mitt Romney save this girl? No, said Doug Becker, the then-boyfriend and now a 32-year-old pastor in the same town of Rockaway, N.J. But I do think what spurred her going home was the kind of coverage it was getting, and I think [Romney] was pretty responsible for that.
Another childhood friend, speaking anonymously, was more blunt. I think the ad is incredibly misleading. Dishonest is the word for it, the friend said. She wasnt saved, she ran away to go to a rave, and got lost and wound up in New Jersey. She paged a friend to come get her.
Obama doesn't mind if you suck the brains out of a baby during delivery, or if the baby survives the abortion you toss him in a closet and wait for him or her to die. He believes you should be able to have an abortion at any time before the baby is naturally born. Our tax dollars should have to pay for this in an Obama world.
Mitt Romney says he is pro life. I believe him. No, he wasn't always. I also believe he will surround himself with those much more conservative then Obama’s socialist lunatics that push abortion on demand at every turn.
Feel free to walk around with blinders on. More babies will die in the next four years on your dime. Do you find comfort in that?
I get a kick out of Democrats who post tripe on internet forums. Those comments are seen by a lot of people, and it turns many of them off.
Romney has been doing things like this since childhood. It’s part of his religion’s mission priority.
Regarding your tag line, since Nixon was a much better president than Carter, I assume you prefer Romney over Obama.
Part of his busy schedule was being the family's, and the boy's, Mormon Bishop.
No joke! Usually I ignore the dozen or so rabid anti-Mormons on this forum. For the record I am a non-fanatical Hindu. On this story, they are missing the most important point, which is that Romney put higher priority over finding a missing child over profits. Life over money!!!
Whether the girl returned on her own or was found by Romney’s efforts is immaterial and irrelevant.
Romney spent lot of time caring for that kid in spite of his very busy schedule.
What you dont want to tell this story ???
OK Ill tell it...
The boy was 14, a member of the same Mormon ward or stake where Willarde claimns he was the “pastor”
Willarde was the high priest and bishop and even archbishop over several groups but if he was the so called “pastor” he was a strrange and unkind one ...
Whereas a real pastor of a Christian church would have gone and prayed for the boy to be healed and live and seen him recover,
Willard instead goes and helps the boy WRITE HIS WILL...
Thats the most calous unsympathetic thing I ever heards of...
instead of bringing comfort and life to the boy he encouraged him to die...
someone ought to tell Willard that if he is going to steal the valor of a real pastor he might want to at least pretend and go through the motions...
I never heard of a real pastor helping someone write a will...
but i know of plenty who came to the house or hospital and laid hands on and with faith in His Word prayed in the Name of Jesus for the person to be healed and made whole and so they were...
in their secret pagan temple rituals Mormons mock Christian pastors and call them “hirelings of Satan”
In this case Willard was a “hireling of Satan”
Romney cannot become a God without doing Mormon works and giving at least 10% of his income to his religion.
To quote the Catholics:
By following all the rules and ordinances of God here, Mormon men and women have the potential of also becoming gods (by first becoming a good Mormon, paying a full ten percent tithe to the Mormon church, and follow various laws and ordinances of the church). As god once was, man is. As God is, man may become (Joseph Smiths words). Mormons believe that there are many worlds and many gods. Each god is similar to God the Father, having the same powers and omnipotence, and even being able to create their own worlds. Heavenly Father is only the name of the god who rules over this world.
What’s your plan to dethrone our current afterbirth Mengele?
Although runaway teens are common, even among people who work for Romney, Mitt only did this once, for a fellow Mormon who possibly could become the Holy Prophet of Mormonism.
Mitt Romney says he is pro life.
He just tecently admitted that he wants abortion for rape, incest, health of the pregnat female, life of the pregnant female...
Kid thats not PRO-LIFE...
Thats PRO-ABORTION ...
and thats the reasons that lead to Roe V Wade...
which Willard has sworn to uphold...
and Willard has promised also recently no legislation to overturn Roe...
Your boy Wee Willie has as much if not more innocent blood of dead babies on his miserable hands than Obama...
Willard has been at it longer...
BTW His RomneyCare allows for $50 abortions...
and Willard is so proud of parts of his healthcare...
“Two men. One vote.”
Our family knows which one is getting our votes.
Don’t tell a lie, I don’t believe all “the detractors”, it is you that doesn’t want to know who the powerful Mormon father is, nor to hear the opinions of the people who were with her, such as her ex-boyfriend who I quoted, who was a 32 year old minister when he said that, the other quote is from her friend at the time.
Care to quote the supposed irrational statement?
As far as the poster that you didn’t ping to attack her, tell her yourself.
You could also clean up your language while you are making up this nonsense and personal attacks.
YOU AND ANSEL HATE MORMONS, WE GET IT ALREADY!
I hate lying, communist,Muslim loving debt raising, welfare pushing, abortion on demand Chicago thugs. Obama must go!
Don’t waste your time or energy with these two(?).
The last time I encountered these two (? same person?) I responded to someone else without responding to them, and at least one of them got pissed.
So I’m going to do it again. I agree with you, and I will repeat what I posted last time (a favorite saying of my church choir director):
“Never try to teach a pig to sing.... it wastes your time, and it annoys the pig.”
(To be honest, the anti-Romney garbage I see here is also why I have not contributed to FR the past go-around. Maybe these types will go away after the election, or maybe they will be happy if OBumbler is re-elected. It’s hard to tell whether their dislike for Romney exceeds their dislike for Obami.)
Hey gang, Hattie the witch is at it again!
She went away licking her wounds from the last time I challenged and subsequently embarrassed her, but you know, she is not a she, at least she wouldn’t admit to it the last go round we had. Just another Obama schmoocher tryin’ to cause trouble here on this conservative blog.
What it is Nana, or should we call you Axleweed?
Why Christians Should Vote in this Coming Election
I am a passenger in this government (just passing through)... I have a unique responsibility to maintain it... NOT TRUST IT... Just as I allow my car to carry me down the road... This government was designed to carrying my family down a moral path (laws), an economic path, and an international path .
My responsibility is to look "under the hood" AND "down the road" and make the necessary repairs and replacements, being mindful of the direction it is taking me.
Just as when I ignore the needs of my car I put my family in danger... so also when I ignore the needs of my government I put my family in danger.
In biblical times there was NOT a government of the people by the people and for the people... designed to be accountable to God fearing people.
Sadly, some God fearing people have chosen to leave the responsibility of "looking under the hood" to the godless... and then complain about the direction of the government.
Again, I trust the government about as much as I trust my car (maybe my car more)... but, I DO get involved with both of their maintenance... because they carry my family down the road at lethal speeds.
Vote as if the future of this Country depends on it.
Nana, your “facts” seem to be at odds with the facts posted by a number of news sources. Even Snopes, which is hardly ever posting anything in favor of Republicans, has the facts of the story very much different than yours. It appears that your version is the outlier.
What are your sources?
Don’t tell me to clean up my language with all of the crap (is that better for you?) that you spout that can only end up helping Obama win reelection and ruin our country, maybe for good. That is what is irrational with youâ to come on a conservative website and trash the Republican candidate that the owner of the site endorses. There’s many other places you can trash Romney.
