Ran for President in 2008 and an early front runner for the nomination in 2012. Mitt is either loved or hated, depending most on what you think of his Mormon (restorationist Christian) religion. Mitt is son of former Michigan Gov. George Romney, who ran for President against Nixon in 1968, was called "the father of volunteerism" by Bush Sr., and was the 1st white Governor to support Martin Luther King. While some assume Mitt to be disliked in Massachusetts as a Republican, a poll just before Ted Kennedy's death showed him to be the 2nd most popular politician in the state after Kennedy, and now presumably 1st. Mitt helped engineer the Senate victory of Scott Brown in 2010, lending Brown his campaign staff. He also lent early campaign support and donated money to the new Republican governors of New Jersey and Virginia via his Free and Strong America PAC. Married to Ann, his high school sweetheart, Mitt is father of four boys and has many grandchildren. Mitt went to college at Brigham Young, then got an MBA and JD from Harvard. He founded Bain Capital, which helped create Staples, Domino's Pizza, and The Sports Authority. Mitt saved the 2002 Olympics from financial disaster and balanced the budget of Massachusetts at a time when it was virtually bankrupt. Mitt pioneered a health care plan in Mass. based on free market economics that takes only 1.2% of the state budget and had only two dissenting votes. He just wrote a book, No Apology: The Case for American Greatness.
Mitt Romney may be the 45th President of the United States and save our economy! (Including the music industry.)
I'm no Mitt Romney, but here's my solution to the economic crisis.
Since we can't have Reagan, the next best thing is Romney.
