He wants energy independence, he better start by strangling the EPA. Even with Obama gone, the entrenched liberal bureaucracy will still be killing us. Nice to see him stand up and show some spine. Let's hope he follows through when he's elected.
Right ON, Romney! Well done sir. Don't stop after the campaign - keep it going once you are in office and we just MAY Restore America!
'Restore America, don't fundamentally change America.'
This is the best speech I've heard Romney give to date. He was very good with the protestors. He put them in their place without really trying. All he had to do was say he would do exactly the opposite of what Obama has done for 3 1/2 years. There's a lot Obama has screwed up and it's nice to hear what will be restored once Obama is gone.
It will take time, but just starting will give us real hope and help our economy to grow.
Awesome. More please!
I was wrong about Mittens. I was sure he'd roll over and play politically correct if he got the nomination, but it appears as if he's playing to win.
The obamatards need to get used to being marginalized by Americans. Because that's the way it's going to be for the rest of their lives.
He's hitting his stride. That's great. Sounds very good.
That campaign stop looks like Frankenmuth, MI. That is a cool town and was definitely on his itinerary today. It's where "Bronner's" is, the largest Christmas store in the world. I'm talking multiple acres of Christmas stuff under one roof, and open year round. It's freakin' unbelievable. Frankenmuth boasts nice restaurants, shopping, river tours, horse-drawn carriage rides etc. It's a German town founded by Germans who immigrated here over 200 years ago.
Other than Mackinaw Island, Frankenmuth is probably our favorite town here in Michigan. Next time you're in Michigan drop by both of those. Avoid Flint and Detroit. Frankenmuth and most other Michigan towns are nothing like those :-)
Committed to memory? It's called being informed. Try it. Not hard to memorize three towns...at least not for me. I live in Michigan. So do all of my grown kids. I read that one of the towns he was going to today was Frankenmuth. Hannity interviewed him in the old Frankenmuth Mill and he spoke at the new mall there, it looked like. We've been to both there several times. I recognized the spots.
If it "explains a lot", you won't have any trouble mentioning two things that it explains will you? I'll check back in a day or two to see if you mentioned even one thing it "explains".
You're still 'smarting' from last night huh? I understand. I wonder what it's like to get personally and intellectually shellacked. I've never had either happen. Maybe you could enlighten me on what that's like too. It must happen to you regularly. Please give the dumb dupes at C4P the finger, and tell them it's from me.
I refer to the dreaded thumbs up of course :-)
Yeah, I figured as much...but look at his picture. He's the handsomest hog I've ever seen. A precious picture of health. Charlotte, of web fame, might appreciate him. "Some Pig". Remember that?
By the way, Rshill7 stands for "really steep hill # 7"...a challenging memory from my motorcross days :-)
Bedtime for Daddy. Nite ya'll. Thanks Nehemiah.
And a covered bridge, and excellent chicken dinners.
Checkout Saugatuck sometime. Really pretty town.
Yep. Hanniity interviewed Romney at the old mill there, which aired tonight. My Father-in-law has made that same suggestion regarding Saugatuck. He's a born and bred Michigander who also lived in China for approx. 20 years.
What Michigan town are you close to when up north? We live fairly close to Alpena, another nice town. That's where we saw "Cats" performed live on Father's Day.
I'm a southern boy who migrated to Michigan with that Michigan gal of mine. The one I married 25 years ago when she dared enter Florida. As soon as she got homesick, we packed up and moved here. This is where we started our business about 15 years ago and never looked back.
Good to see your old picture back. Some people and some things are keepers.
Saugatuck has gay people. Shhhh! Didn't bother me a bit. Not even the three cross-dresser dudes that looked like pro linebackers in drag. Biggest set of high-heels you ever saw.
Southeastern Michigan for us. Near enough to VirusX to bring down his property value.
I went to school in Florida, moved up to coal country when I was in my late teens, and then to Michigan for the last 14 years. Now we're headed the other direction on account of the K-Missus don't like snow.
Glad you like the pic. I'll have to work in some wrinkles and grey hair before too much longer.
The thing that makes him special is that I sleep well at night knowing he isn't going to commit political suicide..it is nice not to worry....couldn't say that about Santorum
The one thing I respect about Romney is that I don't see him doing anything or saying anything stupid. He is too smart, now that the wind is at his back he will build on it, that is what makes him a better candidate. Can't say the same about my other choices, Santorum, Cain, Bachman.. It is going to be up to us to shape his agenda...time to get to work!
A politician is the most honest person you will ever see, as long as you know that everything he or she does is in the spirit of self-preservation. We need to make it clear that it is in his best interests to do what WE want him to do...that is where WE can make the difference!
What do you think that Santorum, Bachmann, and Cain did/said that was so wrong?
BTW: I think the media had it out for Cain.
The whole point is it is not time to show your hand. You don't need to, he isn't running scared he is confident and he is pushing the subject instead of allowing the media to get their foot in the door to get him off message...brilliant and impressive. We might be ready for an Allen West in 8 years but right now we just have to keep it simple and stay on message
That's because the media is racist.
At least, according to the reasons they keep telling us we're racist.
I don't think it was wrong, hell I agree! but you can't give the Media any ammo.. look they are having to cut and paste Romney to try to create something....that is how desperate they are! He isn't giving them anything they can use to twist or divide...they didn't say anything that turned me off, but Santorum's religious stuff, Cain saying he wouldn't hire any Muslims, and can't remember what Bachman said, but it was something similar...I agree with them all, but it is too philosophical of a discussion for a primary, once you are elected you can go there but right now you just gotta keep the pressure on and not screw up...Obama has nothing to run on, you don't need to take political risks at this point..The difference is so stark even a blind man could see it....Follow?
Those ideas are Conservatism 101, those ARE conservative messages and the easiest to understand and the hardest to misconstrue
Reagan did the same thing...he didn't try to teach Conservative ideals through the media, he kept it simple, then gradually and over time educated folks
The difference which I see is that you have a pro-USA guy vs an Anti-USA guy, a Pro-Private Sector vs a Pro-Big Government guy...I think that is all you need..keep it simple stupid. KISS a military abbreviation very true...not time to split hairs then you get caught up in the media spaghetti that keeps you off message..I agree it is about more than that, but lets win the damn election first! can't rebuild the house until you extinguish the fire
Disagree. All those conservatives strike more of a contrast to Obama than ROmney does. That's the most important thing.
The media will always try to find something. With Santorum the whole made up "he's going to ban contraception" thing was garbage and most people weren't buying it.
Santorum, Bachmann, Cain, Newt, and Sarah (had she ran) all could've beaten Maobama much easier than Romney since they articulate conservatism better and have the records to back it up.
Any GOP candidate can beat Maobama, but the more conservative, the greater the victory.
Newt with the Black male youth comment....very true but we are still a PC society...we can change that but it takes teaching and time
Sorry to comment on my post..But the Paul folks need to understand that we can probably get a lot of what you guys want accomplished with Mitt as Prez. Don't take your toys and go home, there is so much we agree on, and where we do, we can influence the outcome....Just gotta get off the high horse first
Wasn't my first choice, or second, or third or well forth....but the guy has his stuff together and is very sharp and witty. He could do great things with a bit of Conservative pushing...I am optimistic Can't believe he lost to McCain...the Huckabum factor...Thanks Huck!
Hey, I'm impressed....well, maybe Mitt is growing on me. Of course I will vote for him, I just wasn't enthused by him like I am by Sarah Palin.
If that was NObama there, he'd be bumbling and fumbling and mumbling and desperately staring at his teleprompter to tell him what to say!
Romney was on a roll... Just "four more months"!
The full Wawa clip and now this is really making an impression on me. I never knew Romney was that good a speaker and without a teleprompter. I can't wait for the debates.
If you want to be in Europe's shoes 5 to 10 years from now keep voting for Democraps..
That is where Obie is taking us at a rapid pace.
Romney is not perfect by any means but he is a Hard nosed business man. He knows what a profit loss statement is unlike our current Potus who hasn't the foggiest idea of how to run a pop stand..
It's an easy choice, and then we must work to stack the congress with constitutional conservatives every chance we get.. Rinse / Repeat...
Keep up the pressure an not sit on our butts after the November election like we won the lottery or something.. Elect the best conservative every chance we get. We need to become brick layers, Build it one brick at a time. Become masters at getting good conservatives elected and lay those bricks one by one over and over and over.
By 2016/2020 we could have a great conservative candidate ready for the White House and a solid majority in congress and be well on the path to correcting the disaster of the past decade.
The American people will support us just like they support Gov. Scott Walker.
Walker proved the left wings support is one based on lies..
rinse/repeat...lol. I think some people are shortsighted about all of this. It didn't get this way over night and it's not going to get turned around over night. One step at a time but with all of us working together, we can get 'er done!
Your comment is SPOT ON!!!
Mitt was coming up with his words extemporaneously and wasn't using a teleprompter like O'whathisname!!! He looked very comfortable. Thinking on his feet and not stammering all over the place like O'whathisname does once his teleprompter goes on the fritzzzzzzzz!
