Romney's salary as governor (need help)

Will someone help me with getting info on these statements?

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.

As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.

Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap:

Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's
gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.

Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.

Unpaid bishop and stake president for his church 10 years.

No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.

No salary as MA governor 4 years.

That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church.

I do volenteer work

I work for free all the time, that does not mean I do not have an income.

So, what help do you need?


I need to verify or disprove

I need to verify or disprove the statements, mainly about him not being paid for the olympics and a salary as gov. I've looked online but as of yet haven't found anything about his pay or lack of.

Formerly rprevolutionist

Oh, don't forget... HE SAVED THE OLYMPICS! WTF!!!

Romney had a silver spoon in his mouth from the moment he left his nannies tit.

What is it like to have a father that never allows you to fail?

What is it to have the kind of money and family influence that vice cops and DA's don't want to issue felony warrants for betting $10,000 on camera in Iowa or countless acts of felony subs for votes in Wisconsin, on camera again.

The devil is propping up this bad dude, before that it was his wealthy father.

What is it to know that your dad can pardon you of any and all state crimes. Ask Huckabee's kid who went through Airport Security in Little Rock with a loaded gun and completely got off. This was Mitt Romney's life, always a part of a higher class than you and I.

Ron Paul made his own way in life, the way we did, with some help from his Father in heaven.


That just sounds like sour

That just sounds like sour grapes at someone who was better off thn you.

As for the Father in Heaven..it makes you a TERRIBLE Christian if you suggest that God favored Ron Paul growing up.

All but the MOST absurd Christians beleive in free will. They DON'T believe that God treats humans like his own personal video gasme called Sim Humans clicking on Ron Paul and saying "I will give him a little boost now"

This near deification of Ron Paul MUST stop if you want to break the Cult image of Ron Paul supporters.

Terrible christian to believe

Terrible christian to believe the man upstairs helps people, including Ron Paul? You must read at an 8th grade level if all you saw was him saying god only favors Ron Paul.

MOST absurd christians? Who the F are you to tell people they are "absurd" for believing in a deterministic construct? Philosophers throughout the ages have debated this. This is a thousand years old question. And once again, he never said God only favored Ron Paul. Certainly he helped Romney too.

And no, what MUST stop is the media brainwashing dopes like you.

Finally, I'll loop back around to the sour grapes. We are not making the argument that people who are born with a silver soon do not deserve to get elected. We are using what figure skating judges would call a "degree of difficulty" assessment. Basically it is not that surprising that Mitt has been able to work for free and run for president. For a man who started out rich and able to avoid prosecution unlike most average people, it is not difficult to do the things he did. For Ron Paul, it is difficult to do the things he did, but he made it through. It is no stretch to suppose that Mitt would have never made it far in life had he been born in Paul's social position.

Now given your demonstrated ignorance of logic, I expect little from your response, but miracles do happen.


Americans traditionally despised the class systems of Europe.

I have worked in Europe, for Europeans.

No thanks! Sounds like you would maybe be right at home there with Romney or Obama as king.
