For your consideration:
His full Name is: Willard Mitt Romney
He was Born: March 12, 1947 and is 65 years old.

Working Background:

After high school, he spent 30 months in France as a Mormon missionary.

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School
simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar exam, but never worked as
an attorney. (I didn't know this. Did any of our always a genius Dem
presidential candidates ever do anything like this?)

In 1984, he co-founded Bain Capital a private equity investment firm,
one of the largest such firms in the United States .

In 1994, he ran for Senator of Massachusetts and lost to Ted Kennedy.

He was President and CEO of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

In 2002, he was elected Governor of the State of Massachusetts where
he eliminated a 1.5 billion deficit.

Some Interesting Facts about Romney:

Bain Capital, starting with one small office supply store in
Massachusetts, turned it into Staples; now over 2,000 stores employing
90,000 people.

Bain Capital also worked 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.

He was an unpaid volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial
campaign 1 year.

He was an unpaid intern in his dad's governor's office for eight years.

He was an unpaid bishop and state president of his church for ten years.

He was an unpaid President of the Salt Lake Olympic Committee for three years.

He took no salary and was the unpaid Governor of Massachusetts for four years.

He gave his entire inheritance from his father to charity.

Mitt Romney is one of the wealthiest self-made men in our country but
has given more back to its citizens in terms of money, service and
time than most men.

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of
his income.... Just for comparison purposes, Obama gave 1% and Joe
Biden gave $300 or .0013%.
Fascinating.
