After reading this you will know more about this candidate than you do about the current occupant of the White House, and it's only one paragraph long.



Mitt Romney from his Mitt Romney 2012 Site: After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney. As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies.

That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people. Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap :

- Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

- Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.

- Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.

- Unpaid bishop and stake president for his church 10 years.

- No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.

- No salary as MA governor 4 years.



That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church.

but Obama was a community organizer..



Obama’s Inflation-Adjusted Community Organizer Salary: $39k to $63k

as a community organizer that he frequently mentions comes out to $23,658.63 in 2007 dollars. (Throw in the money he was given to get a car and it’s up to $27,601.73.)

the $12,000 Obama quotes was his “training salary” for the first few months. “After three or four months, he was up to $20,000, and after three years he was probably making $35,000 or so.”

In 1985, the year Obama began as a community organizer, that $20,000 would be the equivalent of $39,431.04 in 2007. His salary when he left Chicago to attend Harvard law School in 1988 would be the equivalent of $63,093.21 in 2007.

Not too shabby. Community organizing: Nice work, if you can get it.
