Now That My Campaign Is Over, I'd Like To Talk To You All About The Church Of Latter-Day Saints

It would appear that, following yesterday’s leaking of a video that shows me effectively writing off half the nation’s voters, we can pretty safely say my presidential campaign has come to an end.

Romney’s Jaw-Dropping Incoherence

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. (Photo credit: mittromney.com) You saw this at the Republican National Convention, which was almost fully devoted to gross distortions of President Barack Obama’s positions – like the endless repetition of his out-of-context quote, “You didn’t build that” – combined with complaints that Obama had not intervened enough in the economy to create more jobs, even in contradiction of the GOP’s supposed love of “free markets.” Here is how the chronology actually went: Early on Tuesday, the U.S. Despite the embassy’s message, hours later, mobs of angry protesters attacked the U.S. Shortly after 10 p.m. A Troubling Pattern. 7 Mitt Romney Statements As Idiotic as His Libya Response.

I was with — a person who is facing some challenges.” He was then unable to describe those challenges. In an interview widely derided for a shortage of follow-up questions, Gregory actually got Romney to make some news.

There were a few phrases in particular, though, that seemed to strike a chord. Referencing her and President Obama’s families, she said, almost in passing, “We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters, that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules, and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.”

Aid Was Good Enough For Mitt's Dad, But Not For Hungry Kids. How Mitt Dodged the Draft. By H. BRUCE FRANKLIN May 1966. Mitt Romney is just finishing his first—and only—year at Stanford. I’m a 32-year-old ex-Strategic Air Command navigator and intelligence officer, now an associate professor in Stanford’s English Department and something of an anti-Vietnam War activist. About a quarter of a million young American men are already being abducted each year to fight the rapidly-escalating Vietnam War. To address such claims of injustice, the Selective Service was rolling out that month the College Qualification Test, a.k.a. the Selective Service Examination, an “objective” assessment of each test taker’s verbal and mathematical skills, to be used by local draft boards, together with college grades and class rank, to determine who was entitled to that precious 2S deferment and who should be shipped off to Vietnam.

But what he never says is "thank you" – to the American people – for the federal bailout of Bain & Company that made so much of his outsize wealth possible.

According to the candidate's mythology, Romney took leave of his duties at the private equity firm Bain Capital in 1990 and rode in on a white horse to lead a swift restructuring of Bain & Company, preventing the collapse of the consulting firm where his career began. When The Boston Globe reported on the rescue at the time of his Senate run against Ted Kennedy, campaign aides spun Romney as the wizard behind a "long-shot miracle," bragging that he had "saved bank depositors all over the country $30 million when he saved Bain & Company. " In fact, government documents on the bailout obtained by Rolling Stone show that the legend crafted by Romney is basically a lie.
