Mitt Romney Outed By The Milkman: Candidate Anonymously Donates Thousands Of Pints Of Milk To Sick Vets

romney milk a cow

Mitt Romney’s secret is out, thanks to a milkman in Boston. When the now Republican presidential candidate toured a Veterans Administration hospital while in a political race against Ted Kennedy, he discovered an awful truth: The facility could not afford enough dairy products for the sick soldiers. After reviewing the medical center’s books and noting that the facility appears to be run well, he asked what they needed help with or might be lacking. The quickly uttered response consisted of one simple word: milk.

The GOP candidate made the now infamous joke about learning how to milk a cow. The day after the complex tour when all of the media cameras were gone, the Republican candidate called the VA hospital to apologize for his remark. Sadly, the medical care center tasked with treating the men and women who once put their lives on the line for our country could not afford enough of the healthy drink and cooking staple to fulfill the needs of the patients, GlennBeck.Com reports.

When Friday rolled around, so did the local milkman and 7 thousand pints of the dairy product. The delivery guy kept his word to Mitt Romney and refused to reveal the name of the anonymous donor to VA officials. Two years later and just days from retirement, the delivery man finally shared his secret with hospital staffers.

Once he became the Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney helped push through a bill to help the veteran’s facility with the dairy funding issues, according to Beck’s radio address. The retired Boston delivery man and a host of other folks eager to share stories about the candidate’s past acts of charity and kindness are slated to appear on The Blaze TV on Friday.

    says alot about Romneys character..he has to be a good man..u can feel the compassion that he has for America…very presidential..

  2. Kate Perez

    Somewhere, there is a Liberal, trying to find something wrong with this story…. Mitt Romney imposes his lactose on veterans who may be intolerant!

  3. Melissa Stamper

    You can feel the compassion in his voice..his speech is not empty..u feel the compassion when he talks..the sincerity iis in his voice..compared to that of Obama..

  4. Rod Huff

    Ummmm…you mean like the right to vote, the right to not be enslaved, the right to not sit on the back of the bus?…..those rights….that Republicans fought for, and won? Those rights that Democrats, in white sheets, stood to keep from women and minorities? You should pick up a history book, Lauren. The Democrats "support" of minorities and women is nothing more than what they have to say to get the vote.

  5. Rod Huff

    Typical…don't worry about facts; just regurgitate whatever the dems feed you…Martin Luther King Jr (Republican) would be soooo proud of what you guys think you do for minorities :)

  6. David Lister

    Rod, you're correct, but you left one thing out. Between Hubert Humphrey's convention speech in 1948 extolling civil rights and the ultimate passage of the civil rights act, championed by a democratic president, the Republican Party decided they would happily embrace the racist former dixiecrats who had been disenfranchised.

  7. Teddy Hickox

    I dare anyone to find an incident where Obama gave his personal money to help and asked for no media attention. Its just like when Romney shut down Bain Capital and flew most of the employees to NYC to find one of his managers 15 yr old daughters that had been kidnapped. They found her and saved her life. I am a Christian and I would prefer a Christian run our country but I would rather have a moral man than a anti-american, anti-capitilstic, pro-muslim man that has no business experience.

  8. Teddy Hickox

    I agree Rod, Lauren is an idiot. The freedom of slaves, the rights for blacks to vote, the right for women to vote, the restrictions of partial-birth abortions which the far majority of the country are against. MLK jr was a voting republican. MLK Jr has family members like his niece, Dr. Alveda King are also republicans.

  9. Stephanie Kimball Young

    Seems like I heard in the news today that Romney doesn't care about people unless they're going to vote for him. I think some people need to get their facts straight. Maybe they can find me a story about Obama helping others with his own money while they're at it. There are many about Romney and he doesn't boast about it.

  10. Brian Lentz

    I've allready found something wrong with this story I think the guys a douche because he passed a bill so the tax payers could pay for the milk, not that I'm opposed to taking care of the veterans, but I would be more impressed if he paid for it out of his own pocket. That would be a true act of generosity, Mitt Romney paying for 7000 pints of milk would be like me buying a sandwich for a guy on the street.

  11. Tom Wyen

    But he did and wasn't broadcasting – too bad more Demo's don't use their own money to do good and leave me mine!

  12. Adam T Reiss

    He actually paid(from his own pocket) for 7 thousand pints every time the delivery man showed up…. for two full years. And he did it anonymously till the delivery man exposed him. That would be like you buying a sandwich every week for two years. You people cannot see past the Obama aura, not even to see an actual act of kindness.

  14. Rob Walker

    that douche Obama hasnt gave nothing from his own pocket of any substance!

  15. Rob Walker

    but in the name of welfare and government assistance he has his votes!!!!!,, and all the other retards!

  16. Massie Lawson

    I give more than 15% of my paycheck to charity and I am NOT a Christian or a Republican. I also do not receive welfare, I am college educated and have a good job. You can lump me with those "Demos" and "Retards" if you like, but KNOW that YOU are the 47% that Romney doesn't give a fuck about. Rob, you know that Brian is voting for Obama. Calling him a retard on his own page is rude. If you don't like his opinion, there is an unfriend button. God bless you in your worldly Shelby County endeavors.

  17. Thomas J. Wehrman

    Wow, when you don't like someone you apparently can't even give them smallest compliment. Here's a guy who gives ten percent to his church, and gets called a douche for giving vets 7000 pints of milk every week for over two years. Your hatred knows no bounds.

  18. Thomas J. Wehrman

    I've run the numbers, at current milk prices, to be equivalent, that sandwich would be about $9, and you would give it to him every week for two years.

  19. Thomas J. Wehrman

    Yeah, Obama's $20,000 a plate dinner with Michael Jordan, and $30,000 a plate dinner with Vincent Carter are oh so much more affordable. And let's not forget Sarah Jessica Parker's. $40,000 a plate fundraiser.

  20. Thomas J. Wehrman

    We all know who Romney was talking about, those waiting for free cheese in their Denali talking on their smart phones about their tatoos.

  21. Jeremy Hoffman

    Wait… wait… ok, i know this is an assumption but tell me if i'm wrong. you'd rather have taxpayers money going towards abortions than milk for vetrans? am i close to right?

  22. Brian Lentz

    I'd rather have tax payer dollars go towards letting women make ther own decisions about whether or not they want to have their own kids or not then give it to unwanted babies on welfare raised by people that didn't want them to begin with.

  23. Donna Rolls

    And he doesn't blame WE THE PEOPLE for the failures that we are seeing now.

  24. Donna Rolls

    You can't make Brian believe anyone actually does good deeds. He has bought the bill of goods that on GOVERNMENT is benevolent hook…line…and sinker.

  25. Donna Rolls

    Massie Lawson Are you upset because he got more than Clown Shoes for his dinner? How does that class warfare thing that he's shoving down your gullet while lying endlessly about growing up poor taste? Green doesn't look good on you BTW.

  26. Donna Rolls

    Massie Lawson at least I haven't seen Romney asking people to send him money in place of buying your daughter a wedding gift or kid a graduation present. Lowest of the low right there, ugh.

  27. Donna Rolls

    Lauren Ashley Howard you obvioulsy know nothing of the history of civil rights. All of the civil rights acts were passed because of Republicans but you just stay stupid and keep swallowing all the pablum and lies that the Dems feed you.

  28. Jeremy Hilton

    Here is my problem and thought on this —- The key point to this is the following —- you see he made a joke that didn't go over well and it was and I quote " tell the vets to milk their own cows" ok so 1st off if you have Mitt as the President and he told China or Russia yeah just do this and it doesn't go over and you piss them off so bad they want to send your ass to the stone age um yeah I don't think Milk will solve that problem. Mitt has a big problem of mouth Diarrhea he can't stop himself from saying stuff like the Libyan comment. This is Presidential material. Wow Jefferson, Adams, Washington would want to slap him this is pathetic both Obama and Mitt just the worst Presidential Material EVER!

  29. Jeremy Hilton

    Kate its the point that Mitt doesn't know when to shut up instead of just ordering the Milk this IDIOT decides to just open his mouth YET AGAIN! and then feels bad and has to fix it. You can't just open your mouth and then give someone something because your a dumb ass just like George Bush would do some dumb crap and make points like. " oh there isn't any weapons of mass distruction here" we have had loosers in the white house for so long i am so ashamed of this country WE NEED ADAMS! WASHINGTON! JEFFERSONS! not these worthless piles. Mitts numbers are SHAMEFUL he's gonna loose so bad when they had a chance to bring in a real change like RON PAUL! a real champion not some bumbling baffon who by the way screwed MA so bad. Garry Johnson was a way better Gov then Mitt look at his record…

  30. Jeremy Hilton

    PRESIDENTIAL did you READ the comment he made it was SHAMEFUL telling Vets to milk their own cows stop watching Honey boo boo and get real.. He talked crap and then got told and then fixed it… WOW stop drinking the fluoride water that is rotting your brain eating GMO's get real… this is all based on his mess up and then he had to fix it because he made a joke that didn't go over well. The way it went was he made the comment he pissed of the guy who ran the vet hospital and then the news got it and ran with it then feels bad calls the guy and apologized. The point is this its not the 1st time Mitt has done this he just opens his mouth and doesn't know when to SHUT UP… That's not Presidential material that's SHAMEFUL and a President has common sense you guys all had a chance to put in someone Presidential called RON PAUL but you deicded to pick this looser who will loose the election because he doesn't know when to shut his mouth. You wantch and mark my words and watch how he gets nailed on the debates…. Gonna love it when he hammers Obama on Obama care which people from his group CREATED!!!! get the truth understand who this guy is… Yesterday Paul Ryan said something and Mitt instead of agreeing goes against him and says that "he's not running for President i am" WOW really no shit dumb ass…. I am so tired of these people… Its PATHETIC…

  31. Jack Murphy

    Its really a shame when you know so little about a man who gives just to further the agenda of the worst president in my life time…..

  32. Jack Murphy

    So you haTe it when others suceed is that it. Question Liberal? If they took all the money in the USA from all the millionaires do you really think your taxes woud go down 1 penny? If you say yes then I know you graduated from stupid school with honors……

  33. Jack Murphy

    All the Tea Party wants is do not spend my great grand daughters money she is only 4 years old. If thats extreme your a fool……..the only war on women is in the newspapers…what we say is this do not force others to ay for your unseemly habits you want sex an I should pay cause your too lazy to take precautions you are so wrong its pathetic….

  34. Jeremy Hilton

    The Presidents that are created as of now are just working for the establishment they work for the banks if you look at where the money is going from Goldman etc they are paying both of these guys to battle it out. Ron took no money from these people and took it from the soliders the point is MSM didn't report it so the people who don't know how to use the internet who don't watch youtube don't have a clue as to what is really going on.

  35. Brian Lentz

    Wow that's exactly what it is, because of my jealousy for everybody in the US that's more successful than I am, I think it's unfair that everybody in the US is not taxed equally. Well you nailed it, guess all that education really paid off for you Mr. Pan America. It looks like you've had a career to be proud of, quite admirable really you would be somebody to look up if you weren't so judgemental. I've work hard for everything I have sir, with all due respect my career might not be as illustrious as yours, but I make a respectable honest living. In no way am I jealous of anybody that is more successful then me, because I hope to be on that mountain top too some day I just think it's unfair to get tax breaks at any level. I'm for the fair tax if you eliminate the tax breaks than you eliminate the people that abuse the tax breaks. Isn't being liberal what this countries all about to be able to be free and make your own decisions to take care of each other even the poor and the elderly.

    Jeremy Hilton … BULLSCHITT …. YOU, YANKEE DIP SCHITT, HAVE TWO CHOICES THIS NOV … YOU CAN VOTE FOR A COMMUNIST OR YOU CAN VOTE AGAINST A COMMUNIST !!! GO JOIN OUR MILITARY, SIGN UP TO BECOME A "GRUNT" AND THEN COME BACK & TELL US ABOUT "CHARACTER" IF YOU CAN !!!

  38. Len DiGiulio

    Jeremy…look at the polls now. If anything it might be a Romney landslide! He didn't take a salary as Gov of Mass…he didn't take a dime to save the Olympics that was financially doomed and he made it one of the most profitable ever. He donated 30% of his income to charity. His pluses outweigh his negatives big time…Obamas negatives outweigh his positives even more big time. On top of being a smart businessman I believe he is honest and honorable!

  39. Willie Dickson

    You are crazy!!! President Obama started out as a community organizer!!! Out of college with a law degree instead of going to wall street to make big money or being a big time lawyer HE GAVE HIS TIME!!! No amount of money can compare to that…He worked in some of the worst neighborhoods trying to make a difference and help people…

  40. Willie Dickson

    Rod Huff OK You make a valid point…BUT what does that have to do with the here and now??? You see any GOPers stepping up to fight for any of those right's that you speak of now??? I think not I don't even know why you are talking about the past but if you really want to go deep then you should know that lots of the long time politicians have ties with kkk, slavery on both sides…It's the here and now that's important not the what happened then!!!

  41. Rod Huff

    Because, Willie…she attacked the Grand Ol' Party's "extreme conservative values"; I was defining those "extreme" values. The GOP has not changed its position since those days, and neither have the democrats. There is just a lot more money on both sides now. I'm curious…what rights are being threatened that aren't being fought for? Democrats STILL abuse minorities, and special interest groups…they take advantage of what the groups believe in, use it to attain votes, then push them aside for the next four years. It's amazing how many promises you hear made about legalizing aliens, legalizing gay marriage, paying for abortions (contraception), helping those who "can't" help themselves, etc. when a dem is RUNNING for office, but think about what they've reeeeally done. That's right…treated them like puppets, scared them into irrational, emotional thoughts of those horrible republicans, secured their vote with promises of gay marriage from coast to coast (something the Fed has NO power to do), and then ignored them for four more years. How can you not see this? Think about the last election when dems DIDN'T tout promises to these same groups. You can't think of one…they've been using the same BS lines on minorities, women and the homosexual community for YEARS, and it still….somehow….works.

  42. Melissa Stamper

    I listened to Romney campaign in Finlay, Ohio..listened and watch..as he was talking..this is a man..who is concerned about our country..loves our country..proud to be an American..u take someone like him..who really cares..our country is becoming so liberal..they cannot distinguish…between good n bad..our country is in trouble if we dont someone who will put us in the right direction..

  43. Mickey Rayfield

    As a woman I don't feel attacked by the GOP; it is the liberal party backing groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and Muslims that ACTUALLY ATTACK women. Women can be raped and forced to wed their rapist or stay in jail till they agree to marry their rapist, they have acid thrown on their face, they shoot young girls in the head for going to school. NOW THAT is a WAR on women. Telling you if you want to have sex then be responsible for your own birth control is not a war, it isn't even a tantrum! The Tea Party are individuals that believe in the Constitution- why do you have a problem with that? We don't have ANY problem with LEGAL immigrants, we have a problem with ILLEGAL immigrants-coming here and rippin us off makes them felons. I have a problem with giving them what belongs to our citizens. Why don't you? We don't attack minority rights, we just believe you should advance based on your capability and not on your race or sex. Need I continue Lauren?

  44. Scott A Burke

    No, the real problem is idiots who can't take a harmless joke. Good grief, only an idiot would think he was actually saying the vets should milk their own cows. People just have to twist everything so they can slam on this guy. I hear liberal comedians make far more offensive "jokes" than that and the libs don't seem to care then.

  45. Scott A Burke

    So taxpayers should be forced to foot the bill for women to have abortions even if they think it's murder? Yeah, that's real great. News for you, the fetus is alive, and I'm not even just talking a spiritual definition but a biological definition. These children can't speak for themselves so someone has to. It shouldn't be legal to murder a baby just because it is inconvenient. This is what the world is coming to. People don't even know right from wrong anymore.

  46. Jeremy Hilton

    Yeah thats right just like Jefferson was how about we get some Presidential material not someone like Mitt who looks like a Ken doll puppet. It's not about looks it's what can you do its about what are you going to do. Telling me your gonna do something with NO PLAN doesn't mean anything. The only person who has a damn plan is Ron Paul… And guess what when you have 50/50 of the people not excited about the President that is not a race. Thats called the less of 2 evils. People need to get a brain in their heads… Taking a joke is one thing but not when its the VETS Man… at this point i would rather have 4 more years of Obama and get someone elected who has a brain in 4 years then 8 years of Bush number 3…
