1. Successful, self-made businessman. Dad didn’t give him a hand-out; he and Ann had to make it on their own.
2. Been married to One woman his entire life, and has been Faithful to her.
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. His dog is a pet as opposed to the main course at dinner. As Obama did in Indonesia.
6. Has pots of money, made it all himself, and since nobody else in this country has any desire to have pots of money – we don’t like him!
7. Has a family of great boys – none of them are in drug rehab.
8. Doesn’t smoke, even in secret, drink alcohol or do drugs – not even in college, where other people were Not inhaling. And He Doesn’t Lie or Steal either.
9. Represents an America of “Yesterday”, where people believed in God, went to Church, didn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a Success! We can’t relate to such an anachronism.
10. Oh yes, he’s a Mormon. That horrible religion that teaches it’s members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, honest, upright and Moral!
Pundits say because of his wealth, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that’s because he Made That Money All By Himself….. as opposed to marrying it (as in John Kerry or Nancy Pelosi) or inheriting it from Daddy (as in Jack, Robert & Ted Kennedy.) We didn’t understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you un-relatable to Americans. Strange!
I want to add a couple more small points that probably are not appreciated by most people.
His life history is out there and easily accessed for everyone to read. There are many who know him from his past and can readily respond to his history.
His Social Security Card, birth certificate and other identification papers are easily accessed and authenticated.
He has NOT spent millions to hide his past and close his files.
You can find people who have been his life long friends and not one of them belongs to a Socialist or Communist party.
All this is in stark contrast to what we now have in the White House and yet, the Left would have you believe we have nothing in common with Mitt Romney?
Amazing isn’t it?
