FDR2012, if you're still out there in cyberland. ..didn't you know that Mitt gave away all the money he inherited from his dad ( he built his own business) and also wasn't paid when he was Massachusetts governor? You'd better get your facts straight before you make any comments anywhere.

Mitt also took only $1 to fix the Olympics.

Liberals always respond with, "So?! He's a rich guy, so he can afford it!"

My response? "Ever hire a rich guy? Do they usually cost less, or more? Did Peyton Manning--an incredibly wealthy man--sign for $1 with the Broncos?"

Professional Athletes have a limited window of earning potential and need to cram in as much as they can in their short, hard careers before they retire.

Mitt saw the Olympics as an opportunity to score some cred to use in his political career so he got his value out of it.

That's a very cynical attitude you've got there...

If you couple Romney's constant and considerable life-long donations to charity (including his inheritance!) with his refusal to take a salary at Salt Lake, you can only be left with ONE rational thought: Mitt Romney is a GIVER, not a TAKER.

Perhaps you can choose to see the good in people, rather than give in to your caustic cynicism.

ROMNEY/RYAN, 2012. There IS no other choice.

You are so wise that you know what Mitt Romney was thinking 11 years ago. Of course there could have been no other reason for Mitt to take on saving the Olympics in Salt Lake City, home of his Mormon religion. I'm sure all Mormons would have been just so happy for the Olympics to fail in their city. You, sir are a kool-aid drinking dunce.

Romney has donated more to charity and paid more in taxes than you will ever earn in your lifetime. Truth hurts, doesn't it?

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Hot Air’s Allahpundit are in rare agreement: A video produced for the Republican National Convention that played on the evening of Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech should have been featured more prominently in prime time.  Why?  It was touching, humanizing and uplifting – and it also highlighted Romney’s professional accomplishments in a very compelling way.  Because the ‘likeability’ factor is such a major component of this campaign, why wouldn’t RNC organizers have moved heaven and earth to ensure that tens of millions of voters would be exposed to such a brilliant piece of biographical art? ...
