    about the kind of incredible man Romney is. Just the first one makes me think he's a nutjob.

    Mitt Romney saved the life of a 14year old girl: Imagine what it would be like if we could have this kind of decisive people-centered leadership in the White House..

    In 1998 the 14-year-old daughter of one of Romney's partners at Bain Capital, Robin Gay, had disappeared after attending a rave party in New York City. The distraught father was beside himself with terror of what may have happened to his little girl.

    Upon hearing of this, Romney stopped all operations at Bain and flew himself and all of the company's employees to New York to conduct the search. Using his contacts with establishments in New York that did business with Bain and anoutlay of cash, Romney led a search for the girl from a command post he had set up in the LaGuardia Marriott that involved a private detective, Bain employees and customers putting up posters, handing out flyers, and interviewing prostitutes, drug addicts, and other street people in New York, and coordination with the New York Police.

    A break came, after media publicity of the search, when a teenage boy called a tip line asking if there was a reward. He hung up, but not before the police traced the call to a home in New Jersey. The girl was found in the basement of the house undergoing withdrawals from a hit of ecstasy.

    Romney, through his efforts, had saved the girl's life.

    A much more appropriate response would have been to give the partner as much time as he needed to find his daughter and to work with police without involving every employee and customer and contact at Bain. This is the kind of man who would start WWIII over a border incident.
