Character: Mitt Romney and the search for his business partner's missing daughter

True: In July 1996, the 14 year old daughter of Robert Gay,
a partner at Bain Capital, had disappeared. She had attended a rave party in New York City and gotten high on ecstasy. Three days later, her distraught father had no idea where she was. Romney took immediate action. He closed down the entire firm and asked all 30 partners and employees to fly to New York to help find Gay's daughter. -- Details at Snopes.com: Romney Business Partner Daughter Search

Your Say

Not good. Read the first email in the link. Romney sees a problem and sets out to fix it, he "can't help himself" which is meant as a compliment. Return of "Wonder Boy", who never got due credit for the New Deal.

He out community organized THE Community Organizer.

It takes little imagination to think that Barry would have used this in his election campaign. And taken full credit just like HE killed OBL.

Some people do…others just talk. Life doesn’t necessarily fairly reward or punish either one.
But I know I’ve seen both types and which one I prefer to associate with.

'Sorry to hear that your daughter is missing. I'm present.'

I've never heard this story before.

I read that before and I liked what I read. Someone who could assess information, conceive a plan, put it in motion, make a decision - and do this all quickly, something he had likely never contemplated doing in his life.

President Gutsy-Call, who took hours to make his decision to have Bin Laden killed,* has the gall to say Romney wouldn't have made the decision.

Romney can lead, and he appears to be competent.
Good enough for me.

*A decision that he knew for years he might have to make.
