WOLFEBORO, N.H. — Mitt Romney spent part of his Saturday morning
sitting in a lawn chair barefoot on the beach of his New Hampshire lake
house, iPad in hand, while President Obama was on the campaign trail.

I don't know... that's sort of a risky thing to do with a politician, much less a political candidate. By default, that implies the company endorses everything that politician does or supports, whether they actually do or not.

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/romney_likens_politics_campaign_uuwtdmSxA0rs3glHgeHSqM#ixzz211NsPxz3

This article gives the reason that Romney uses an ipad

He uses it as a diary

Quote:
"Now this is going to make my iPad a subject of potential theft," he
joked after saying that he used the device to record his thoughts, writing
every two or three days, so that 10 years from now he can "remember
what it was like."

He also wanted to capture "the feelings -- the ups the downs, the people I
meet and the sense I have about what's going to happen. It's kind of fun
to go back and read, as Ann and I do from time to time."

Poor Mitt Romney he has to write on an Ipad?
I see no keyboard on that one so is he using
Swype or Swipe or Swift or Trash or some other
advanced way to enter text on a touch screen?

His first name is unusual to a North Europe guy
like me. Matt as short for Matthew? is more common.

What can Mitt be short for?

Good question. Mitt is a funny name. I think of a baseball mitt when I hear his name. Maybe Kermit? Mitsubishi?

His first birth name is Willard. I guess Mitt is a very special name
that either is a name that his parents had some emotional attachment to
or could it be a nick name at school? Taht he adopted later?

Anyway he is alone having it most likely. I got this result on popular names for boys in USA.

Query Results for "mitt"

Name not found.
You may want to try the similar-sounding names Matt, Matty, Mata, Mat and Matti

so either his parents wanted him to be rather unique or ...

Re using ipad. Can he somehow save all the texts he writes at some ICloud later or sync it because when the battery is worn out then you have to send it to a repair to get a new battery and all his texts will get wiped out?

Does his looks confirm my take that to have success in politics you have to look rather okay not easy if one look appauling sorry have no idea spelling Smile

Obama do look very good too. A lot of them to look good. I usually only
look at girls age 18 to 30 or so so I have no experience of how to determine of guys look good or not. My GayRADAR tells me to not look at Guys in case I would feel attracted so I try to shy away from looking at them but Politicians is almost impossible to not see in pictures. They love to have them up front on News Media Smile

Willard is considered a funny old fashioned name in US.

He didn't like it while growing up.
