It a pretty astonishing thing for him say given that he is provably the most unprincipled politician to seek our vote for president at least in my
lifetime and I'm 48. I literally cannot find a SINGLE "principle" of his that has withstood the test of time save for his drive for personal profit,
no matter the cost.
He even shoves his Mormonsim aside when it threatens his investments or gets in the way of campaign contributions.
He even left his own wife hanging at the Olympics rather than being viewed as a patrician for attending by her side as her horse competed in the
Olympic dressage competition.
He avoided military service and even in his supposed missionary work he stayed in a chateau rather than with his fellow missionaries in more humble
None of his sons served, even though each have come of age during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. We obviously know his position on national service --
don't, if you can get away with it. Heck, he even failed to acknowledge servicemen and women in his acceptance speech in a time of war -- an American
He darned near killed his own dog as opposed to letting it ride in his car.
He assembles a frat boy wolf pack to attack a helpless loner fellow student.
He BORROWS money to buy under-valued companies, LOADS them up with debt and forces them into exorbitant management fees after taking control, leading
directly to bankruptcy after siphoning out all their assets.
He "saves" the Olympics with $1.3B in federal taxpayer funds.
He gets in front of the line at family meals because he thinks his grandkids take too long and then finishes his food before they even really
begun...that comes from his son in an interview on FOX. What a selfish jerk.
He insults common people on cookies he does not like, raincoats he thinks are cheap, etc.
He takes company pictures with his employees with money hanging out of their suits, etc. How charming. Thanks for revealing your values Mitt.
His own state hated him after his first term so much he dared not to run for re-election.
Contrary to the standard set by HIS OWN father, he won't release his taxes (he still has not released even a complete year), though he demanded many
years returns from his VP candidates.
He parks every penny he can offshore -- you sure can't call him an economic patriot. His own dad deliberately avoided tax loopholes he could have
taken on the ground he though it unpatriotic.
I mean seriously folks, can you tell me ONE redeeming quality of this man that makes him worth voting for or reflect some principled position he has
been firm about his entire career? To me, stack it all up and you have in my view a genuinely horrible human being.
