· After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.
· As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.
· Romney or his company BainCapital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply,

and many others.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap.

· Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.
· Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.
· Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.
· Unpaid bishop and state president for his church 10 years.
· No salary as MA governor 4 years.
· That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that's the kind of man Mitt Romney is.

Took no salary as president of the Salt Lake Olympics 3 years.

Gave his ENTIRE INHERITANCE to charity.

Arguing with a cartoon, the Rmoney sense of humor on display!

There is no truthful sense in which Mitt gave his inheritance to charity. I remember well how Ann Rmoney spoke to the Boston Globe when Mitt ran for Senate. Their life was so hard they had to cash some of the stock they had inherited to have enough money to live on.

Easy enough to take no salary when it would have been peanuts anyway compared to your gains from the deals you wrote. It's just not worth a paltry governor's salary - more forms to fill out for a measly six figures!
