Mitt Romney apologizes to Glenn Beck for snubbing him over priceless gift

An invaluable gift passed on to the Romney family by Glenn Beck two years ago apparently is still missing. Three days before the last presidential election, the radio talk show host and soon-to-be movie producer gave Mitt Romney’s son, Josh, a priceless first-edition copy of George Washington’s Farewell Address to pass on to his dad.

On his show Monday, Beck revealed that he felt if Romney won, “he would have to be George Washington to solve this nation’s problems…but that he could, because all of the answers were contained in this document.”

“But” he shared with his audience, “he had never received a thank-you note,” yet he knew the Republican nominee to be a man of honor and integrity. The following day, he did receiv a lengthy email from Romney in response, which read in part, “I heard I failed to send you a thank you note for your precious book you kindly gave me during the campaign. I am so sorry for the error, and I’m afraid that when you learn the reason I failed to send you a note, you will be even less happy.”

Romney explained that he never received the farewell address, which is why he never acknowledged it. Beck said on air that he had seen film of Ann Romney reading the document on the candidate’s plane, so he surmised it got lost in the shuffle and all the hubbub that accompanies the final days of a presidential campaign.

“He is an honorable man because I wouldn’t have wanted to write that letter to me,” Beck told his listeners. “It made my eyes bleed for about an hour. I got up at 3 o’clock this morning and I read that note and I could not go back to sleep. I thought, ‘It’s a farewell address!’”

was deployed; outrageous law lets them stay!

Beck wished Romney well as he strives to become the elder statesman and the Teddy Roosevelt of the party. “It is nice to see a man who has courage…there is nothing to gain by him telling me that. Nothing to gain.”
