Ann Romney Wins the Night … Lights Up the RNC with a Tremendous Speech … “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point” (VIDEO)
WOW, JUST WOW … ANN ROMNEY LIT UP THE RNC WITH A TREMENDOUS SPEECH.
Tonight I want to talk to you from my heart about our hearts.
“I want to talk not about what divides us, but what holds us together as an American family. I want to talk to you tonight about that one great thing that unites us, that one thing that brings us our greatest joy when times are good, and the deepest solace in our dark hours.
“Tonight I want to talk to you about love. …
Ann Romney, the wife of GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, hit her speech out of the park and introduced Mitt to America as a warm loving husband who was a problem solver and who “has helped lift up others.” Ann praised the hard work of her husband at every job he has had and said to America that Mitt will work hard for America to turn the US around and … “THIS MAN WILL NOT FAIL”, “This man will not let us down”. “This man will lift up America!”
“ However, one of Ann’s best lines of the night was when she said that “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point.”
“This is the man who will wake up every day with the determination to solve the problems that others say can’t be solved, to fix what others say is beyond repair,” she is to say about her husband, according to the excerpts. “This is the man who will work harder than anyone so that we can work a little less hard.”
“I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a ‘storybook marriage,’ ” she is to say. “Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once. And those storybooks never seemed to have chapters called MS or Breast Cancer.”
“I Want To Talk To You About Love” ~ Ann Romney’s RNC Speech 8/28/12
Some excerpts from Ann’s speech:
And I want us to think tonight about the love we all share for those Americans, our brothers and sisters, who are going through difficult times, whose days are never easy, nights are always long, and whose work never seems done.
They are here among us tonight in this hall; they are here in neighborhoods across Tampa and all across America. The parents who lie awake at night side by side, wondering how they’ll be able to pay the mortgage or make the rent; the single dad who’s working extra hours tonight, so that his kids can buy some new clothes to go back to school, can take a school trip or play a sport, so his kids can feel. like the other kids.
And the working moms who love their jobs but would like to work just a little less to spend more time with the kids, but that’s just out of the question with this economy. Or that couple who would like to have another child, but wonder how will they afford it.
But let me say this to every American who is thinking about who should be our next president:
No one will work harder. No one will care more. No one will move heaven and earth like Mitt Romney to make this country a better place to live!
It’s true that Mitt has been successful at each new challenge he has taken on. It amazes me to see his history of success actually being attacked. Are those really the values that made our country great? As a mom of five boys, do we want to raise our children to be afraid of success?
Do we send our children out in the world with the advice, “Try to do… okay?”
America Deserves Better … What Does it Say About a President’s Character … When His Campaign Tries to use the Tragedy of a Woman’s Death for his Political Gain … How About “Special Olympics” Jokes … How About Constantly Blaming Others?
When being President … Character Matters.
The recent Mitt Romney political ad, “America Deserves Better” pretty much says it all. After 3+ years under President Barack Obama America does deserve better. Much better. Much, much better. In the ad below, it asks … What does it say about a Presidents character when his campaign tries to use the tragedy of a woman’s death for their political gain? What does it say about a Presidents character when he had his campaign raise money for the ad and stood by as his top aids were caught lying about it?
Doesn’t America Deserve Better … Character Matters!
There comes a point when a President has to take the responsibility for his actions, agenda and policies. As they say, “the buck stops here”. However, when it comes to Barack Obama, the buck stops with everyone else, especially George W. Bush. To the point where 3+ years into the Obama administration, Jeb Bush, the former Governor of Florida, tells Obama to stop blaming his brother. Of course it has to do with Obama’s failed policies and lack of focus on jobs.
“I mean, look, the guy (Obama) was dealt a difficult hand, no question about it,” Bush said on NBC’s Meet The Press. “But he’s had three years. His policies have failed.”
On another side of the issue, I am curious, why does everyone think that Barack Obama is such a good guy? Seriously, where does this come from? Do we actually consider him a good guy because he is the father of two and has not cheated on his wife? Is that how low we have set the bar? If this is the case, then Mitt Romney is a “great guy”, he has been married to one woman, Ann Romney, and has raised 5 boys and helped take care of his wife through her illnesses. Serioulsy America … nice guy? Have you been paying attention to the vicious. negative campaign that Obama has been running? Likable, hardly.
Back to character … Does this really surprise anyone about the negative ads that Obama has backed and his win at any cost? For all those who buy into the liberal MSM’s narrative that Barack Obama is so likable and people would want to have a beer with him. Really? From Obama’s failed first term in office, the only way you can have a beer with Barack is when he falsely jumps to a conclusion that you were acting stupidly and in a racist manner. Or have we forgotten when Obama made the claims that the Cambridge. MA police acted stupidly? Before Obama knew the facts, The One automatically jumped to the conclusion that Sgt. James Crowley “acted stupidly” for arresting black Harvard scholar Henry Lewis Gates Jr.
Click HERE to watch the shameful Obama joke on ‘Special Olympic”
Talk about character, or the lack thereof. Remember when President Barack Obama thought it was perfectly ok to go on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and make a derogatory joke about the ‘Special Olympics”? Because Barack Obama can’t bowl, he made the comment that he bowled like “Special Olympics”. That is what passes as humor for Barack Obama. What character, making a pejorative comments regarding those with special needs who have more talent, honor and class in their pinky than Obama. The Jokester in Chief puts others down because of his inept failure to knock down any pins. Heck, Obama can’t throw a baseball either.
I will say this … if Barack Obama is willing to make such a comment as a way to get laughs and denigrate those participants in the Special Olympics in from of millions of views, imagine what he does when no one is watching? Then again, its not like Obama’s former White House Chief of Staff didn’t use the “R” word … Character Matters!
Anne Romney Says Woman Being Eyed for Mitt’s Vice President Pick … Could they be Ayotte, Haley and Martinez?
I guess this will be called more of the GOP’s war on woman.
Anne Romney, the wife of presumptive GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, stated that women are being eyed and vetted for Mitt’s pick as who will be on the 2012 Republican ticket.Wouldn’t that be something if the very party who has been continuously accused by Obama as having a war on women actually had a women on the ticket? Last time I checked, Joe Biden was an old, white dude.
Mitt Romney’s wife says her husband is thinking about picking a woman to be on his ticket this fall.
Ann Romney says in an interview, “We’ve been looking at that and I love that option as well.”
She tells CBS News she thinks the person selected for the No. 2 spot should be “someone that obviously can do the job but will be able to carry through with some of the other responsibilities.”
US Senator Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire)
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez
Who could Mitt Romney being eying as his VP? The obvious three choices that come to mind are New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez. Ayotte probably does not bring enough to the table being a new Senator and from a fellow New England state. Nikki Haley is from a safe “red” GOP state of South Carolina. If it were my pick I would go with Martinez and I might actually chose Susana Martinez over everyone’s choice Marco Rubio. Hard for Democrats to play the women and Mexican card when Susana Martinez is the successful governor of NM, female and Hispanic.
DISGRACEFUL … MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Mocks Ann Romney for Riding Horses to Combat Multiple Sclerosis
Has this network no shame? … So who is conducting the ‘War on Women”?
Hey NBC, are you still proud as a Peacock? Just how low will the in the tank for Obama MSM sink in its efforts to smear Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann Romney? MSNBC reached a new and creepy low when host Lawrence O’Donnell actually mocked Ann Romney for riding horses as a way to cope and combat MS.Honestly, who the hell is Lawrence O’Donnell to make any comment against an individual with an illness like Multiple Sclerosis and how they deal with it? How much hate does the LEFT truly have in their hearts. The LEFT so fears Ann Romney because she resonates with the people and is such a beneficial asset for Mitt Romney that she is considered fair game. How sad. Could you imagine if something like this was done against Michelle Obama?
O’DONNELL: That’s right. The Romney family definition of an Olympic athlete is a person who participates in the purchase of an Olympic athlete, in this case, a horse that the Romneys own. Now, Mitt Romney has always told the story of the family’s entry into the breathtakingly expensive so-called sport of dressage as a therapeutic option for Ann Romney’s multiple sclerosis.
O’DONNELL: Now, this is not in any way to make light of Ann Romney’s difficulty with MS, it’s obviously a very difficult thing to bear. And there are a lot of things you can do to try to deal with MS. But, come on, dressage does not appear in any of the more traditional courses of treatment. And if it’s true that dressage is how wildly rich people deal with this very difficult personal health problem, then why, why does the horse appear on Mitt Romney’s tax return as a business expense, that in 2010 produced a $77,000 business deduction. Not a healthcare deduction, a business deduction for the Romney Limited Liability Corporation that owns the horse as a business.

LAWRENCE O’DONNELL, HOST: In tonight’s Rewrite, Mitt Romney rewrites the definition of an Olympic athlete.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BOB SCHIEFFER, HOST OF “FACE THE NATION”: I hear you’ve got an Olympic athlete in the family.
MITT ROMNEY: Isn’t that something? Yeah, it’s not me. It’s my wife, of course. She’s the athlete, but in this case, it’s not her personally, but she along with two other people purchased a horse and have trained it up.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
O’DONNELL: She’s the athlete. That’s what Mitt Romney just said. She’s the athlete.
SICK, JUST PLAIN SICK!!! Lawrence O’Donnell best hope that he nor any of his loved one’s ever develop an affliction like MS in their lives. However, the better that Mitt Romney does in the poll, the greater the attack will be on Mitt and Ann Romney. The MSM and MSNBC is all in on the smearing of the Romney’s.
