bartender who just came out as the man responsible The Bedside Companion to Crime for the infamous 47%ilm in which Mittens let some Küçük Günahlar Sokağı fat cats see the real Romney Good stuff I think an evaluation of The Real Romney turns on whether it provides new information to the reader information that would help a swing voter make up his or her mind I think Kranish Helman succeed on that metric We learn that Romney samily history is deeply intertwined with the history of Mormonism and that he served an important role as a lay leader in the church We learn that as a lay leader Romney counseled a woman Loving You with Teeth and Claws (Dead Things, facing a womanacing a difficult birth against having an abortion We learn that Romney keeps most acuaintances distant but can be silly or dorky with his Nekromanteion (Prométhée family and closeriends We learn that Romney assiduously courted gay voters during his run 101 Ways to Bug Your Parents for the US Senate We learn that Romney ran theirst post 911 Olympics ok I probably already should have known this one We learn that Romney s advisors counseled against his ill Pinstripes and Penance fated decision toocus on social issues during his 2008 presidential runMost of the book is devoted to the history of Romney s patriline post Mormonism conversion sparked immigration his work Wicked, Sinful Nights (Raised to be Bladesmen, for his church his career at Bain his US Senate run his tenure as head of the Winter Olympics and his tenure as governor of Massachusetts His 2008 and 2012 presidential runs are given pretty cursory review An entire chapter is devoted to RomneycareThe Real Romney compares veryavorably with a similar just in time Ali Pashë Tepelena for the election biographyrom 2008 Obama From Promise to Power by Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendell Mendell s biography was pretty thin and wound up relying heavily on Obama s own book to cover Obama s early life Romney has a much longer political career going back to his US Senate run than Obama did in 2008 and the Boston Globe has been covering him much longer than the Chicago Tribune had Obama It shows This isn t a Robert Caro work but it s an extremely valuable voice about Romney right nowThe Real Romney very much reads like a series of long newspaper articles That s both good and bad Kranish Helman give the Little Fiery One facts But they don t engage in a lot of in depth analysis So the critical portions consist of repeating the attacks of his critics This is unsatisfactoryor a couple reasons those statements are not explored in greater depth and they come off as sour grapes both of which makes them difficult to judge The Real Romney is the The Sacred King first volume to comprehensively chronicle the notoriously distant politician Tediously researched and engagingly written this dense book outlines Romney samily history childhood teen years and later ascent to personal and political success The authors even handed approach allows Mitt Romney s actions and words to speak Milking the Dogs, Part 1 for themselves A dignified and impressive piece of political biography p 23 24George Romney Mitt s dad ran as a liberal to moderate politician playing down his Republican Party affiliation and worked hard to win the votes of groups that didn t always support the GOP including the black and labor votesWatching hisather Mitt learned that George had a disarming way of rebutting arguments against him Sometimes George did so by distancing himself Larong Pinoy (LgM Books For Children, 5) from his party and speaking sympathetically about an opponent s viewpoint For example George had been attacked by labor groups one of which published a pamphlet titled Who is the Real George Romney The booklet accused Romney of doublespeak such as when he said that Michigan needed a hundred thousand new jobs but then declared that he had never promised he could deliver them But George who had mixed relations with the unions at American Motors sometimes sounded sympathetic to his labor antagonists as when he lamented that the Republican Party was identified too much as a business partyMy comment The apple truly doesn tall Keisaramörgæsir farrom the treeI was going to note uite a Mrs. Piggle-Wiggles Farm few thingsrom this book but what really is the point now It was an interesting read and has been hailed as a very How To Be A Domestic Goddess fair and impartial account of Mitt There are definitely some things to admire about Mitt his intelligence and analytical mind his adoration and pursuit of Ann hisamily values his dedication to his Velvet Moon (Annwyn Chronicles, faith etc There is also much to look at with concern his self aggrandizement dogged pursuit of political office and what he was willing to do people he was willing to use to achieve it and his seemingly incomprehensible understanding of his own convictions on certain issues and an inability to stick with his own words leaving many many betrayed people in his wake Just the simpleact that much of his political career was spent running as someone who said People of integrity don t Kine (The Kine Saga, force their beliefs on

This book is interesting easy to read and neutralDespite the act that I have been very busy I The abbots house found this book interesting enough to read uickly Writing a review has been another matterThis book begins with Romney s ancestors starting with nothing working hard and becoming successful That includes Romney sather George Although Mitt has never had to worry about money he has worked Interesting background on the presumptive GOP nomineeI was especially intrigued by the in depth look at his The Eagle Of The Ninth family s role in This book reminded me of all the good things that I liked about growing up Mormon The bookeels a lot like a testament about the power of community and while Romney has definitely had a very illustrative career you can t help but wonder where he would be if it wasn t Storm Kings (Song of the Aura, for his dad who seems to lurk behind all of Romney s business successes Overall an excellent histoire and not too biased a book though there is a definite conservative tilt This may sound like a loaded uestion but How much difference is there really between Obama and Romney Both men seem to be basically nice guys of moral character with wholesomeamily values They both have unconventional amily histories They are both moderates there are several similarities between their stances on many policy issues one created RomneyCare the other created ObamaCare And when we see Obama being criticized or not being liberal enough by Liberals and Romney criticized as not being conservative enough Faith in the Fog of War for the Conservatives it often looks as if these two savvy political players are nothing than two sides of the same coin There is one obvious difference between these two men s public demeanor however Obama is as even his harshest critics admit an elouent orator an excellent debater and an articulate interviewee Romney on the other hand has a tendency to sound rehearsed and stiff And then in those rare unguarded moments of candor he has a tendency to say some very strange things In his climbor the 2012 Republican Presidential Nomination Nystrom Atlas of World History (2008 Update) for instance he let slip such statements as he likes toire people that he s not concerned about the poor people and possibly most puzzling of all that corporations are peopleThese uotes are taken out of context and easily spun by Romney s opposition Still though when I hear things like corporations are people I Bodice Rippers find it pretty baffling I know that Romney spent the majority of his adult life as a corporate sapien but does he really believe that corporations are people And are there really other people out there who think corporations are people Toigure this thing out I did what any inuiring 21st century mind would do I posted a uestion on a Conservative Republican internet message board to provoke a discussion and perhaps get my explanation Here s what I got my user name on this site is Jack btw Jack

so are lamps and so are poems and so is Preperation H If that is your argument then you are sounding like the Steve Carill character in the movie Anchor Man I love lampAnd Romney s statement that Corporations are people sounds like it belongs in a Matrix movieIf corporations are people and corporations can own other corporations that means that people can own people Which is slavery I m not sure but I imagine if you polled all the people in America at LEAST 80% of those people would disagree with Romney s statement that people are corporations Of course if you polled corporations the results would be much less Oh wait a minuteyou can t poll a corporation can youDr Rose yes they are peopleMe If you are a Republican then I think you have to worry about this uote by Romney because this uestion is going to splinter your Republican party The goofball knee jerk Right wing exrtremists will HAVE to side with Romney And that will only make them look likeools as they trip all over themselves trying to rationalize this bizarre Gordon Gekko esue statementThe Independent thinking Republicans here will realize that Romney is completely off his rocker with this statement and it will make them look like Good Boy fools if they voteor a man who would say such a thingButch Corporations are people in the legal senseMe So if Romney is saying that corporations are people in he legal

some people actually DO think that corporations are people or at least that is what they say they believe But what about Romney Did he actually believe his own statement To seek the answer to this I headed to my local library and picked up a copy of The Real Romney by Michael Kranish And after reading it Ieel that I gleaned a better idea of what makes Romney tick A person s values have uite a bit to do with who they are Romney has some very good values but I honestly think that his values include the idea that corporations are people And this value is the worst possible value a President of the United States could have The worst thing The Believer, Issue 99 for this country would be if we elected a CEO in Chief CEOCreating Employment Overseas Because not only are corporations not people
