Once again, a reminder: Mitt Romney is a mensch

Most Republicans who watch this video will learn nothing new about Mitt Romney, but it is striking that CBS News would run a piece so favorable to the Republican presidential nominee (this close to the election).

Methinks Mitt wouldn’t have turned out as well as he did without the influence of one particular individual:

  2. It is a shame on society that we expect people to demand fanfare and notice for their acts of kindness. As George Sand put it: “Charity degrades those who receive it and hardens those who dispense it.”

    Acts of kindness are not charity. They are offers of a helping hand and brotherhood. What Romney does is measured in sweat and sinew, not the simple stroking of a pen on a check.

  3. The MSM knows Obama is toast.

  4. I nearly fell of my chair when I watched this CBS report.

    Thanks so much for posting it!

    And another big “Thank you” for your work on this blog.

  5. By running one positive article after running a thousand negative articles, they may now claim to be ‘Balanced’ because they have shown both sides.

  7. What I found most surprising that ‘Gayle King’ – Oprah’s longtime best friend – led the discussion!!

    Oprah is not campaigning for obama this time around, but has visited the Romney’s and, having dinner – cooked by Ann Romney.

    Romney is a kind man, non-greedy, who gave his inheritance from his father to charity.
    Romney did not accept salary while governor is MA.
    Romney did not accept salary during his time at the Salt Lake City Olympics.
    He did not accept salary during his later time/years at Bain Capitol.
    The person, who purchased Romney’s house in Utak, stated that the Romneys live very humble, no bling or extravagance in their house. No maids, no chef, no gardener – it’s all done by Mitt and/or his son’s.

    There’s a long list how Mitt help people, who did not know him time, money and other assistance.

    While the Romney’s are humble and thankful, the obama’s are bombasticand, obsessed by celebrity and, constant needed fawning over them by others.

  8. Okay… this is classic… Mr. Benedict spends a few minutes telling the “journalists” that one on the tenets of Mormonism is to serve others without fanfare and praise. Mr. Rose is then incredulous that Mr. Romney hasn’t added this side of himself to his own narrative. Ms. King is then totally amazed that these stories have have “come out”. Do they realize just how stupid they make themselves look?

    CBS had no trouble finding and “reporting” on all aspects of Mrs. Palin’s life (with emphasis on the negative). Now, the same organization is expecting the Romney camp to do the work for them? We even knew which rand of toilet tissue the Palin’s used ! I guess they are used to being spoon fed information from the Obama camp.

    Someone should tell Mr. Rose and Ms. King the reason this side of Mr. Romney has not been revealed by the media is the media has failed in their duty to report all sides of both candidates.

    Someone should tell Mr. Rose and Ms. King the reason this side of Mr. Romney has not been revealed by the media is the media has been so biased since 2000, they fail to see just how biased they have become.

  9. The MSM knows Obama is toast.

    Agreed. The great Kissing Up To Romney has begun. It’s only going to be temporary of course, but it must be gone through… it’s part of the MFM coming to grips with the “preference cascade” that is presently crushing Obama.

  10. BTW, too bad Cinesnatch isn’t here to viciously flog such dead horses as what Romney may have done (or easily may not have) as a boy, Seamus the Dog, etc.

  11. I think this video actually aired back around the time of the convention. But the NY Times did put out an article in the past couple of days that looks designed to educate people on how Romney operates. It is as if they are moving from mud slinging to informing.
