    Have to give Willard credit- he knew what he wanted back then.

    Mitt thinks he’s entitled to the Presidency.

    This strip assumes that Romney is intelligent and far-thinking.

    I’ve been rejected by people I’ve annoyed – should I run for office?

    Be a missionary and annoy people one at a time. Be a politician and annoy millions at a time.

    “Of course he had a plan, like father, like son!”
    π
    Father George’s plan was nothing like his son MItt’s, and son MItt’s plan is nothing like his father George’s.
    I was a kid growing up in Lansing, Michigan, living with my family in a previous governor’s mansion only a few walking blocks from the Capitol buildings. Dad was a minister and SDA conference official who knew Gov. George Romney personally.
    π
    Governor George was a rock that didn’t turn over; son Mitt was a flip-flopper that would do justice to a flapjack.
    π
    Old saying: “The apple never falls far from the tree.” Well, in this case the apple fell into the Grand River (which runs through Lansing) and bibble-bobbled all the way to Lake Michigan.
    π
    Mitt was a flip-flopper as Governor of Massachusetts, and, with his background, he will be a flip-flopper as President of the United States — if we voters will elect him and hence let him.
    π
    Sage advice: Don’t.

    Just a tidbit that a former Mormon missionary would probably pick up on that others would probably miss:

    Although I knew the first names of my companions, to this day, it seems strange to think of them by those names. People at school that I had known as a missionary continued to call me “Elder Reeder” for years. After returning home, readjusting to using my own first name seemed strange and unfamiliar.

    Mormon missionaries don’t normally refer to themselves by their first names, even in private conversations among themselves. My experience in this regard in 1995 Bolivia may have been different from Mr. Romney’s in 1968 France, but I doubt it.

    (P.S. Go Mitt!)

    44 years later Mitt will be running for Prez and Frenchie will be cursing out the TV when they announce who got the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize.

    I guess Mitt has spent a lifetime preparing for rejection. Is this a prediction (prophecy, even) ?

    Remember the old saw, ‘you never have to worry about calling to a missionary because they all have the same 1st name’
