Presidential Elections 2012 - #3887 - Big-Hearted Mitt Romney - The Daily (2) VIDEO: RNC Releases New Web Video - Barack Obama: "Empty" Promises: Debt & Deficits

One cold December day in the early 1980s, Mitt Romney loaded up his Gran Torino with firewood and brought it to the home of a single mother whose heat had been shut off just days before Christmas. 

 Years after a business partner died unexpectedly, Romney helped the man’s surviving daughter go to medical school with loans for tuition — loans he forgave when she graduated. And in 1997, when a fellow church member’s teenage son fell seriously ill, Romney sprinted to the hospital in the dead of night, where he kept vigil with his terrified parents. Stories like these — tales of long hours spent with grieving families, financial assistance to those in need and timely help given to strangers whether asked for or not — abound in the adult life of the Republican presidential candidate. Many of them, though not all, are connected to his work as a Mormon bishop. And yet these stories are largely absent on the campaign trail. Some supporters believe he isn’t touting them because it’s impossible to separate the good works he’s done from a Mormon faith that demands them — a faith that has by all accounts been a defining influence in his life, yet which the campaign has been determined to keep out of the political conversation.  Read more..........  Article contributed by Steve Peters.


RNC Releases New Web Video: "Empty" Promises: Debt and Deficits, just released, already has received 4,026 views.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a new web video "Empty Promises: Debt and Deficits" demonstrating President Obama's repeated broken promises when it comes to spending. Barack Obama promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term but has run trillion dollar deficits every year since. Now, as he's campaigning for a second term, he's making the same empty promises he made four years ago. "President Obama has broken his promise over and over when it comes to reining in Washington's out of control spending," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "During the campaign, he lambasted the growing debt and, once elected, he pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. "Yet, President Obama's record has been to double-down on Washington's out of control spending by running trillion dollar deficits every year he's been in office. His serial disregard of the nation's finances is mortgaging our children's future, guaranteeing that the next generation will not be better off. "Barack Obama is right--the American people are tired of politicians who talk the talk but don't walk the walk when it comes to fiscal responsibility. After four years of lip-service on spending, it is clear that Barack Obama is just a typical politician, saying one thing to get elected and doing another once in office."
