Mitt Romney will be the next U.S. president. He was a Republican governor of Massachusetts. He is a Mormon. There has never been a Mormon president. Romney will be the first.

Willard Mitt Romney was born March 12, 1947, in Detroit, Michigan. He is the son of George Romney, a 1968 presidential candidate. He and his wife, Ann, have 5 sons. Romney has a B.A. from Brigham Young University and an MBA from Harvard. He co-founded Bain Capital, an investment firm, and helped to start Staples office-supply.

Romney ran for the U.S. Senate in 1994 but lost to Ted Kennedy. He was elected governor of Massachusetts in 2002 and served a four-year term. He had conservative values, a Republican governor in a liberal state. With veterans returning from Iraq, there need to be adequate benefits and health care. Romney supports veterans. He was the first Massachusetts governor to appoint a Secretary of Veterans' Affairs.

12 million illegal immigrants poured into the United States from the south. Romney is hard on illegals. He made an agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that allowed state troopers to arrest and deport.

Romney supports nuclear energy and wants to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Romney is pro-life. He opposes Roe v. Wade. He is against abortion except in cases of rape, incest or when the mother's life is threatened. He supports the death penalty in cases of terrorism and multiple killings. He believes that marriage is a union between a man and a woman. Romney opposes same-sex marriage and civil unions.

Useful overview of our next president, Jim. Thank you.

I'd like to add that he also completed a law degree at Harvard, "He attended Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School and received both a law degree and an M.B.A. in 1975": Mitt Romney: Biography

Thanks for the additional info, Linda. The debates are coming. Romney will have to give it everything he's got. I think he can do it.

I think the differences between these two candidates will become very clear during the debates.

It's too bad many states will start early voting very soon. Those people won't even see all of the debates.

Our early voting starts October 17, which means people voting that early would miss only one debate--the one on foreign policy, and while that is not ideal, I doubt that the one debate would over all make that much difference.

Hello all,

I have little understanding of American politics in general but keep a watching brief as it were. What does/will Mitt Romney do now? Is he still a Republican Governor? Senator? etc.

Apologies if you think my questions a little naive.

Thanks

He was no longer in government. His son came out the other day and said that he really didn't want to be president.

By the time election day came around I was very disappointed in the entire process. I felt Romney didn't have the 'fire in his belly' which would match what his son came out and said recently.

I listened to the democrat convention and their platform was deplorable. I felt Obama won by bribing his voters promising them everything they might want. Romney didn't come across well. I have no idea what the future holds for America.

When Kennedy ran his slogan was, "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country" and this is now turned around completely.
