Why doesn't the lame stream media portray Gov. and Mrs Romney in these accolades? The Romney's acts of kindness, goodness and fellowship would certainly reach into the hundreds. It appears that the media only want to present lies and mistruths.
This is a true patriotic American. You go Mitt and keep bashing Obama, especially tonight at the debate.
This in juxtaposition to our "pResident" who won't even HELP HIS OWN HALF-BROTHER who lives in a shack in Africa. Thought provoking, indeed.
Yeah, but be fair to Obama, he has a history of generosity as well - round about the same time, he was happy to let his classmates take a drag on his dooby!
Romney is truly a humble man and I think sometimes many people forget that. Cheerleading is not his style....God knows that Mitt has done....so do the people that he has helped without EVER SEEKING ATTENTION....that is the CHARACTER OF THE MAN!! When you do it with your money, without any attention, without any acknowledgement or any credit....that is a beautiful and humble thing.
We as Christians are asked all the time to lead by example, to live the life as Christ calls us to do...when you hear this you see Romney lives the very life that embodies so many of the traits that Christ calls us to exemplify!!
I applaud you Mitt....you never brag...you never mention...you never seek credit...you do God's work in the humble stillness of the quiet of your soul and heart. That is worth more than any headline or credit a MAN can be given on this earth for in heaven you shall be known!!!
And Obama...in his heart is the empty space of darkness and selfishness...only thinking about his pride and arrogance!
One lives as God calls us...the other lives as God warns us!
For someone who give 4x the tithe for the cause of the needy and charity, his heart has to be in the right place and it's impossible that this man not be blessed by the Word of God. "Those who give to the poor lend to the Lord" Proverbs 19:17.
Yet I am more impressed by the touch of humanity out of a big, kind heart that outflows goodness and compassion, not so much of his generous phelentophy donation, but from the genuine testimonials of the common folks whom he touched in time of their needs.
It was also mentioned on Beck's show or another about Romney NOT taking any wage with the Olympics seat he held AND the governor position. I heard it said that he felt he didn't need to be paid and refused wages for these positions. Is that true? Thanks and God bless
There really is no comparison between Mitt and Barack. The Obama's life has been all about him and what he feels the world owes him while Romney's life has been all about service. How some people can even begin to think that Obama is a better man is unthinkable. Romney is a better man, a better person, a better example of the heart of God, and will be a better president for this nation!
I really believe that God has chosen Mitt Romney for this time. He wasn't my first choice or even my second; but now I think he's the man America NEEDS. I will finally be proud of my country again...
Mitt and Ann Romney seem like a warm, gracious, caring and generous couple...my kind of people. Georgia has early voting starting today so my wife and I are going to go vote in a bit...it's going to feel good to make my vote for Mitt count today!!!
And then there's this:
"Have you heard the story about Mitt Romney’s Park City, Utah home?"
These stories are coming out in dribs and draps because Romney did not do what he did to make himself look good. He didn't publicise them, he didn't talk about them, for him and his family it was about practising his faith.
What a difference to the community organiser currently in the WH, who spend 20 years listening to a man filling his ears with hatred for America.
What a contrast between the candidates. Have we ever heard any, even a single one, of a story from O's past where he willing shared and gave of himself, his time, his money. There may be something out there, but I truly doubt it. O's always been a taker and continues to be one today.
Romney is a decent man. He'll make a refreshing change from the Liar in Chief that we now have occupying the White House. I can't wait to vote for Romney on Election Day.
Thanks for posting this Scoop!
Romney is a super human being! Not even in political office, no cameras, no press, nothing but love and care in his heart for that poor family! It will be a pleasure to have Mitt and Ann Romney in the WH! I might NEVER take my Romney sign down! LOL! :-)
Wow. What a horrible greedy selfish man. Not like Duh Bumbler, I'm sure. Hey libs! What has Duh Bumbler EVER given to ANYONE other than himself?
Are you referring to the "beerfest" where NObama made sure to have the cameras rolling? I doubt NObama would donate a bottle of water to a child on fire unless it served himself in some way.
Be still and know that the darkness will be banished and a New Dawn is coming on Nov 6th! That's what gets me through the dark days too...
I'll bet the American taxpayer had to pay for those beers at the infamous 'beer summit'. I don't drink anymore and I had to pay for O's beer! Outrageous.
Just like I detest abortion and I have to pay for some Fluke to have sex and not have to worry about the consequences. It gets paid for before sex, and after conception, and even after failed abortions. Sick.
Now I made myself angry. Breathe in, breathe out. Okay.
Because, as much as I appreciate it, folks, I am more concerned about what Romney has DONE...his record. I am VERY concerned about it. This sort of thing is just window dressing. It's like "kissing babies". It makes for a cute photo op but it doesn't speak to what this man will do policy wise. And based on his record on social issues in MA, a record everyone seems to claim does not matter, I am very concerned. I am also VERY genuinely conflicted on this election as a Christian. Yes, I think Obama HAS TO GO!, but I keep feeling like Romney will only be better in that he is "pro-America" and has business sense that can reverse our fiscal course. But is that the only issue facing our nation? NO!
I see Christians coming out in total support for Romney, when his record in MA did all it could to undermine biblical values. Now, I realize that most folks aren't Christian, I understand and appreciate that difference, but for me, as a devout believer, I don't concern myself with shiny election year rhetoric. I look at the the record. What do these guys do when their back is against the wall and the pressure is on? Where do they stand on the issues?
I think Romney is focusing on the economy because his social record is HORRIBLE. He pays lip service, but most of my fellow believers are totally ignorant on his record and they will vote for him this time ONLY because the alternative is far worse. Any other year Romney would lose. That's why I keep saying even a circus monkey could beat Obama this year.
And thank GOD I live in a very red state, because I am back and forth on whether to vote for him or not. My conscience comes first.
I think you are the current Gov of Mass. who is doing a hit piece here. You want to suppress his supporters.
You noticed that there are names after letter from folks in Massachusetts. Like you said, 87% liberal state. Who is stage9, a Obama operative who wants to shake things up here. I am a conservative prolife person. If you don't like sex ed, have the local board remove it. Gov. Romney does not micro-manage local govt. Separation of state and local govt. People of Mass. spoke and want the sex ed.
I am a conservative, but you sound like a crazy person. I am all for pro-life, but you are a hater! I have seen msnbc and they are crazy too. I think you are twisting sex education course from a liberal teacher who is open to talk about realistic views in the world. Gays do exist. Love it or hate it. Mitt Romney is an awesome man.
Yeah, the gay clubs is outrageous. They should be eliminated from all schools. Did Romney know they were going to be teaching about oral sex?
I know his record is not good in MA, but Obama is going to sell us down the river to the Russkies and the Muzzies. We have to get him out. Heck, I'd be up for a third party in 2016 if Romney doesn't stand with us Conservatives. I suggest we all pray about it. God knows that just because we vote Romney, it does not mean we agree with everything he's done.
Newt wouldn't drop out when he should have. If he'd done the decent thing, Santorum would be our nominee, but this is where we are. Just because one votes for someone does NOT mean they agree with everything they've done. It means we pick who is better for the country.
That is why we MUST get conservatives in Congress. Overturn Obamacare and BLOCK any attempt to replace it. Overturn Frank-Dodd, etc.
I understand your issues. But think of it this way, NObama refused to protect the most innocent children that survived the abortionists best efforts to kill them. Only a MONSTER could support that extremist position. I'm not hot about Romney's part in the homosexual "marriage" issue either. Not the perfect candidate, but the best of what choice we were presented with. I think he will do fine for this country and think we're going to be happy for the most part with his Presidency. But like I wrote before, if and when necessary, we can and will hold his feet to the fire! He better not betray the very base that propelled him into office. Plus we will get more and more Conservative/Tea Party Republicans into office too. We are taking back this country - one election and one district and one position at a time... but taking it back we ARE! God bless, and I hope you can come to a peaceful place with the issues you are addressing.
Sorry brudder. I couldn't read that cuz my eyes are covered and I'm drunk on Koolaid.
Ok, I read it, but my post still stands, while yours has a grand mal seizure, also known as tonic-clonic.
He was representing Massachusetts...which is not the country at large.
I too was torn on the idea of Romney being our candidate in the beginning. Romney said there is a difference in a single state vs. the entire country. I have to vote because I feel it is my duty and a priviledge and as the saying goes, "not to vote is to vote." Santorum was my first choice. But, Romney is our candidate and we have to get Obama out of office. All of those questions you have were brought up during the Republican debates if my memory serves me correctly. I will have to go back and review his answers. I will say this, Romney will not hand America over to Muslims like Obama is doing. I have grown to trust Romney and I am going to vote for him. Muslims are trying to turn America into an Islamic state and the EU and the Obama administration are happy to let it happen. Not me!! No one, not a Muslim, not the Obama administration, not anyone, will tell me how I can live my life. I only care what God thinks of my actions. I am voting for Romney because I believe he can help mend our economy. I do not give him all of the power as the Obamabots gave Obama. The leaders of our country are servants of the people. Not masters over us.
I guess it's just something I'm going to have to work through personally. I have been talking to other Christians about it, but I'm still very dissatisfied. It's a gut check thing.
I was reading this a moment ago, and it just makes me wonder what he'll do once elected:
"Yet, Gov. Romney on his own went ahead of the Legislature and forced the implementation of same-sex marriage." - Mat Staver
I'm just being honest. I'm really having a problem here.
I would encourage you to run for school board or another local office. The leftists are way ahead of the game and we have a lot of damage to undo (like educational indoctrination). It must start at the local level.
One thing I'm sure of. Romney will not create Executive Orders that countermand the American people and go against the very nature of the Constitution.
The rest of it is up to our Congress to hold his feet to the fire. In Massachusetts, Romney tried to go along with the majority. That tended to be moderate to liberal. In Washington, if we can keep the majority Conservative, or at least Republican, we can better hold his feet to the fire. Time will tell how effective it is, but it is definitely head and shoulders better than Obama.
With Obama, we have no idea what crap he will come up with in a second term that has no constraints. Unless the Congress is 75% controlled by us, Obama can veto anything we try to do and get away with it. Romney won't do that.
I, too, did not like Romney as my candidate initially. But the more I see and hear about the true Romney, the better I like him and the more hope I have for the restoration of our great nation.
Restoration takes baby steps. I have even higher hopes for 2014 and 2016.
I started out supporting Rick Santorum and wish he was our candidate. But he's not, we've got Romney now, and at least he's not NObama. So I'll support him. I'd support Attila the Hun for President if it means getting NObama OUT on Nov 6th.
No it didn't! The entire issue surrounding counterfeit marriage was a result of a COURT'S OPINION, not an actual law. An OPINION! An opinion Romney REFUSED to fight!
Was he representing CHILDREN when he endorsed gay clubs in schools? Schools that now REQUIRE children as young as elementary to learn how to perform oral sex?
Uncover your eyes man!
Stop with all the koolaid drinking talking points and grow an original opinion friend! As a man asking for my vote, I would like him to answer these questions! And as a citizen, I have that right!
As President he has a duty to protect the INNOCENT among us and an obligation to endorse those policies that reinforce posterity! And thus far, based on his record on social issues, he HAS NOT done that.
Anyone who believes that allowing marriage to be undermined or children to be sexualized is "representing the country at large" is seriously disturbed and blindly loyal.
And everything you just wrote, I keep trying to tell myself. After all, what CHOICE do we have? And then THAT ALSO makes me mad, because I feel like Romney was FORCED on us when there were MUCH better candidates. And I KNEW Romney's record LONG before this election cycle began. And I thought that there was NO WAY Conservatives would nominate this guy, but I was wrong.
I know, I know, that's all water under the bridge at this point and we have to move forward...
But I am still very conflicted, and I just can't fawn over him like some do. I will bite my tongue and hold my nose when I vote, but I just can't sit here and cheer lead this guy.
I just want him to answer these questions. No one on the left will ask him because they have no reason. Why would they ask him about counterfeit marriage? They SUPPORT it! That's why they can find nothing on Romney; his record is very liberal. They can't slight him for policies that they share in common.
How does he "adjust" to the fact that children in MA, thanks to his allowing the door to be opened to it, are now being forced to learn how to suck another man's "you-know-what"? How do I, as a reasonable human being, turn that off in my brain and just blindly vote for him? THIS is what jars my conscience.
He threatened to fire Justices who refused to marry homosexuals. He banned the Boy Scouts from participating in the Olympic ceremonies he presided over due to their stance on homosexuality. Accused those who excluded "civil partnerships" as a part of defining marriage "extreme". May 15, 2004 Romney issues proclamation: “Gay/Straight Youth Pride Day”. Romney’s “Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth” events include parade, GLBT activism (with prominent transsexual radical activists), and a GLBT prom – two days before same-sex marriages are to begin. The legality of counterfeit marriage in MA is solely based upon a court's opinion, not an actual law which Romney refused to dispute. Romney says laws require Catholic Charities not to discriminate against same-sex parents in its adoption placements [but there’s only an administrative regulation]. He says same-sex couples have "a legitimate interest" in adopting children.
During Romney's term as Governor, in the public schools, Romney's "Governor's Commission for Gay and Lesbian Youth" was well-funded, had access in the schools, and put on an annual "Youth Pride Parade" and "gay/transgender" prom in Boston. On two occasions (2003 and 2004) Romney signed proclamations for "Gay Youth Appreciation Day" to coincide with those events.
What is the result of all of access into the schools:
Dec. 9 during the Iowa Debate:
Reporter: How do you feel about gays serving openly in the military?
Romney: That's already occurred. I'm not planning on reversing that at this stage.
Reporter: But you're comfortable with it?
Romney: I was not comfortable with making the change during a period of conflict, by virtue of the complicating features of a new program in the middle of two wars going on. But those wars are winding down. And moving to that direction at this stage no longer presents that problem.
Also, during the debates he championed Bright Horizons Children's Centers, but what was not said was that Bright Horizons embraces "enhanced pro-homosexual, pro-transgender policies in their child care".
And this doesn't even MENTION his abortion record!
ALL of this scares the living daylights out of me. But, I'm told, none of this matters. The economy is most important.
I just want him to answer these questions.
Ya' reckon an 87% legislature had anything to do with legislation during his term as Governor of Massachusetts? Is it or is it not a perennially blue state? As Governor of Mass. should he have pretended he was Governor of Texas? Was he elected by Texans? Was he representing Texans? Was he representing a solid block of Christians?
Perhaps he was representing the voters of the state he presided over. In the same fashion the CEO of McDonalds wouldn't advocate for Burger King or Wendy's. Massachusetts is not the USA. It's a little blue part of it...which is mostly red, i.e. conservative.
As President will he be representing the country at large, or Massachusetts? See the difference? Different job, different goals, the CEO if you will, of the USA, not the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Thanks for explaining your position. i don't think you'll find many (any?) here that would say that Romney is an IDEAL candidate or the PERFECT candidate. But he IS NOW our candidate. And when given the choice between NObama and Romney. It's a no brainer for me at least. NObama has to go or America will fall/fail!
When we win the election, that is only the start. It's not like the Tea Party is going to pull up sticks and go home or Christians are going to quit. If and when necessary, we will hold his feet to the fire on issues that matter to us and to this nation! One of the big differences being that unlike the current pResident, Romney will actually LISTEN and NOT dismiss us! Romney's love for America is as great as NObama's disdain for same.
The more and more I see and hear from Romney, the more I like him! I'm glad to support him! Romney for President!
Romney will be better in all phases of the game. You have to adjust to what you are dealing with. Obama cannot do it, but Romney has a record of adjusting to the gameplan. He has a big job getting us out of this mess, but he can and will do it.
No. a realist. I appreciate these sorts of stories, but I'm more concerned about these:
Why is no one talking about any of these glaring stories? I told you before. I don't drink the koolaid.
