Anybody but Romney? Are you sure? At age 19, Mitt Romney delayed education to voluntarily serve a two-year mission in a foreign land. While there, he had a near-fatal accident. You and I might have returned home, but he persevered to completion.
While earning a bachelor’s, an MBA and a law degree, Mitt spent nine years as an unpaid intern for his father’s gubernatorial campaigns. You and I might have used our father’s career to launch our own, but not Romney. Instead, he founded Bain Capital. You and I might have been less willing to take such risks, but not Romney. He leveraged his education and capital and it paid off. Concurrently, he led his church congregation — counseling in matters such as marriage, loss of loved ones and loss of employment. You and I might have grumbled at an additional 25 to 30 hours per week, but not Romney.
