Do you guys realize that Romney is 65 years old??

Man, I don't know about you, he comes across as a vibrant 50-55 year old to me. He's energetic, good-looking (where are the wrinkles??), and vibrant, and mentally sharp.

Often the case is made that Reagan was almost 70 when he took office in 1981....one of the oldest presidents ever to take office.

Romney is only 5 years younger...yet he talks, acts and moves like he's 20-30 years younger. McCain age was also an issue in the last election.

How does Romney come across like a 50-55 year old?? He's a multi-multi millionaire (not quite a billionaire), does he have medical treatments to retard aging?? LOL.

But seriously, I was really surprised when I learned about his age. He's full of energy and enthusiasm....my God, my father and mom at 65.....damn, they were always ready to go to sleep.
