Seven stories about Mitt Romney that you won’t hear from the liberal media

Mr. Hawkins wrote a column entitled “7 Incredible Personal Stories About Mitt Romney That You May Not Know“.

Here’s my favorite:

2) Mitt Romney gave milk to a V.A. hospital: This is the kind of thing Mitt Romney has done for people in need who cross his path.

He shared a story of a V.A. hospital in Boston that Mitt Romney stopped at while on the campaign trail running against Ted Kennedy. Ted Kennedy had made a thirty minute stop at the same location a couple of weeks prior.After touring the V.A. hospital, Mitt asked to look at their books. After he spent forty minutes going through their books, he told them, “You run a very good place, very tight. Very good.” Romney asked to go on another tour of the hospital, and after spending an hour and forty minutes there, the last question he asked was, “So what… what do you — what are you lacking? What do you need help with?”

The response? “Milk.”

Since the press was around, snapping photos and asking questions, Glenn explained that Romney did a really awkward joke where he said, “maybe we should teach everyone here how to milk a cow.”

Of course, that’s all the press cared to hear and ran with a story that claims “Mitt Romney says veterans should have to milk cows.”

“This is where it gets good,” Glenn started. “Romney calls him up the next morning.”

Romney first apologizes to the man who runs the hospital for any problems the attention from the press jumping on his words brought to the hospital. He next offers to help with the milk situation.

“Friday comes, and the milkman comes,” Glenn continues. “This is what the vets needed – they needed 7,000 pints of milk a week. Milkman shows up, 7,000 pints. The head of the V.A. hospital asks, ‘Where did all this come from?’ He [the milkman] said ‘an anonymous donor.’ Now, the guy didn’t put it together.”

Glenn explains that when the next week rolled around, the milkman shows up again, and continued to show up every week for two years. After two years of delivering 7,000 pints of milk a week to the hospital, as the milkman is retiring, the man finally gets him to reveal the anonymous donor.

It’s Mitt Romney.

“Mitt Romney was writing a personal check and didn’t want anybody to know for two years and provided the vets with all of their milk in Boston,” Glenn explained to listeners this morning.

When Romney became governor, he sent a bill through to help the V.A. hospital – it was down to the dollar.

Read the other six.

Meanwhile, taxpayers spent $1.4 billion on Barack Obama and his family.

Mr. Hawkins and I share the view that Romney was not the most conservative candidate in the Republican primary. I wanted Michele Bachmann first, then Rick Santorum when she dropped out. John wanted Newt Gingrich. But we would both rather have Romney, than Obama. At least now we know that there are some good things about Mitt Romney as a man, even if I don’t agree with him on policy.

  1. My dream ticket was Cain/Bachmann. Last year, I ran a “Repeal RomneyCare” campaign.

    But every so often, I throw some money into Romney’s campaign, and I’ll be heading up to NH to knock doors for him. Not only is he not Obama, but he highlights how we don’t need government to solve all of our problems.

    The cost to get $7,000 of milk to the hospital was $7,000. With a government bureaucracy, how much would that be? $15,000? $20,000? How much would the hospital spend with the paperwork? Compliance?

    Charity is cheaper than the government: dollar for dollar, you get much more done. Having a man in the White House who exemplifies that can only do good to our country, because it detonates a nuclear bomb on the “But we neeeeeed government” nonsense.

  2. I can’t believe mitt wants old vets to milk cows….though you have to admit a few things:

    1) that was a funny headline – I laughed out loud (and I know there are going to be idiots who believed it)
    2) at his level of politics, he should have known better – he’s viewed as rich and out of touch so to make jokes that reinforce the view of a rich man out of touch with the common man…
    3) if in doubt, read #2

    It’s like his windows on an airplane joke…he has such a dry sense of humor you don’t know if he’s being serious or not – I always give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that’s how a dry, stodgy person attempts to relate to use lesser beings, but man it was funny to see the comedians rip him apart!

    1. I don’t think that a $16 trillion dollar debt is funny, though. It was $8 trillion in 2006 when Pelosi and Reid took over. Then $10 trillion when Obama took over. No budget has been passed since the Republicans took the House in 2010, because the Senate is Democrat-run. So tell me this, Jerry. Which funny comedian persuaded you with his jokes that making the national debt $22 trillion by 2016 was a good thing to support?

      1. it was not comedian in general…I did work with a bunch of reds and their funny comments….”it’s just a number”…I was so shocked when they spouted that out…then I talked to this blogger…when it was a red in office – debts and deficits weren’t bad as long as red objectives were being met…

        So it was no one in particular – I’v always been against huge debts and deficits, regardless of whose in office as I don’t like either party….but it’s funny that the reds completely ignore that Reagan kicked off this spend fest and bush jr threw on nitro to speed it up even faster. Obama, who in my opinion is really just another red, has kept every single spending program that bush started and added some. Further proof he’s a republican: he hasn’t kept a single one of his democratic campaign promises but has kept every single piece of republican pork. He’s kept all of bush’s expensive wars and he’s maintained all of the same military spending…he’s kept all of the too big to fail banks in tact and he’s resisted any regulations on them – he’s as red as a republican can be.

          1. The real question is, is did the revenues go up (and in bush’s case stay up – no) high enough to cover the spending that they did not cut? Our national debt answers that quetion better than I ever could….NO

            A small bump in revenues while a meteroic rise in debts/deficits isn’t what I would call a win.
