I too believe in Mitt Romney. We will never find a better man. The way in which he stepped down when he lost was far beyond impressive. It was presidential. A characteristic that I have yet to see in our current president. If only Obama would learn from Mitt and reach across the isle and use bi-partisanship to get us out of our economic mess. Instead, Obama uses divisive measures that demonize and criticize the very American citizens that he is suppose to represent. A President Romney would have taken many more hits from the media. Mean ugly jibs would have continued and I believe attempts would be made to undermine any success. Instead, Romney gets to enjoy his life and health. May he do so with our blessing.

Dear Mitt,

I have awakened on November 7 to learn that your bid for the presidency was unsuccessful. In the midst of the disappointment that I share with you, I want to thank you for devoting years of your life to the wearisome task of running for president. Millions of Americans are grateful to you.

You have been one of my heroes for the past 48 years. I still recall vividly the valiant cross country race you ran at our Cranbrook Homecoming in October of 1964—a race...
