In watching this speech, towards the end, you see the "heart" of Mitt Romney who can speak to the mental/emotional/spiritual side of being unemployed and not knowing what's going to happen next......all without cards, notes or a teleprompter......and the only candidate that has addressed the REAL side of being unemployed.
Toward the end of the speech you hear a man talk about the "heartbeat" of the American spirit and only a man that truly understands what makes us GREAT as a nation can speak to this.
My husband wrote down the 5 points Romney made WAY back during his acceptance speech during the RNC. The 5 points have not changed. Consistant throughout all the debates, speeches, rallies etc. Consistancy, integrity and humility are character traits that I think would fit well in the White House.
I'm an educator of 23 years. I think unions have their place but in so many cases have protected mediocrity......especially in education.
I fully support the Romney/Ryan team and look FORWARD to the positive change R &R can bring to our great country.
I am so afraid these days that Obama will pull it out of the bag. Coming here and reading your comments see what I believe in gives me Strength. God give them strength and keep us all safe.
ONE MORE QUESTION....WHO IS ATTACKING WHO? I JUST LISTENED TO OBAMA HERE IN COLORADO AND HE SAID A LOT OF THINGS...YOU ARE JUST BLOWING HOT AIR! WHAT CHANGES ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE???? HOW????.....STOP BASHING AND TELL US WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO!
Kid rock, Rodney Atkins, Suzanna Martinez, and thousands of Coloradans overwhelm Romney Ryan at Red Rock Ampitheater-Up by four and closing the door!
Praying God's word for Mitt and Paul
"The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of justice. The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide."
" He was born in the summer of his 27Th year. Coming home to a place he'd never been before. He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again. You might say he found a key for every door.
When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away. On the road an hanging by a song. But the strings are already broken and he doesn't really care. It keeps changing fast, and it don't last for long.
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high. I've seen it raining fire in the sky. The shadows from the starlight is softer than a lullaby. Rocky Mountain high Colorado"-John Denver
How appropriate these words were for a man that will be bring back the great state of Colorado back into the red. And how fitting is it for the name- Colorado in Spanish means...Red.
Mr. Romney you may not be 27yrs old, but on this night you truly were born again in the eyes of those Coloradans in attendance. And you may have woken-up the people of this great Red Mountain state called Colorado.
And on November 7Th we will all be high as the great red mountains of Colorado. Go Mitt!
Seeing the size of the crowd has to shake the Chicago gang to its core. This is DENVER, which is a "D" town. It was the place where Obama received his coronation. Romney has gone into the belly of the beast, and has just ripped out its heart. This is an earthquake of magnitude 8.0, which shouldn't go unnoticed. It tells me that Romney has locked down Colorado, and Obama better run back to Ohio.
Prayers to both for protection and God's divine intervention. For God to help open doors for voters to see the clear choice of getting obama out of power. Amen
It was interesting watching that speech. Paul Ryan sounded a bit wooden and tired honestly, I think he's probably talked himself out the last few weeks. But Mitt just radiated energy and confidence as he stood before the crowd, and then he talked in such an easy, relaxing manner! It was like having a chat in a living room instead of a stadium with 10,000 people.
One of the things that Romney has really honed is his ability to connect well with the people on the stump. I guess when you're saying what you actually believe it's a lot easier to do it right.
Thank you Democrats for Romney! We appreciate your help saving this country and turning things around. God bless you all.
Democrats for Romney/Ryan! Now that's what I called great placards,and putting America first. Colorado- that's what I call crossing the line to bring back the greatness of America.
Scoop if you want to post the whole event it was awesome, they filled Red Rocks to capacity over 10,000 people came! http://www.denverpost.com/politics/ci_21839256/romney-ryan-rally-at-red-rocks Complete with music from Rodney Atkins and Kid Rock. Susanna Martinez introduced Ryan.
Romney///Ryan will put america back to work, their leadership can be trusted, they respect god and country, christian values,, our business's will start hiring and growing,,,the last four years of confusion has hurt our american sprint, but with Romney Ryan, we will become the nation of strong values and hard work, lost in the last four ,under a obama//biden regime who doesn't understand how jobs work, after 40 plus years in the Washington bubble it became more power for them ,not the american people, so get out the vote talk to friends and the ones who never vote ,our nation is o0n the line, this the most important election in yours and my life time, we must stand united and elect romney //ryan , for god //country and our children's future
Considering I didnt want him until after the primaries and until all the dust settled, he sure has grown on me….and my entire family.
He's become a statesman, and ALWAYS was a gentleman.
2 weeks until November 6. Lets rock and roll.
Sometimes it bothers me a bit how much I adore Romney/Ryan after witnessing some of my friends reactions to Obama in 2008. But then I remember that I adore them for the right reasons - they have substance, experience, truth, humility and integrity. My friends worshipped Obama for an unrealistic promise that was completely absurd and was never going to happen. And then I feel better.
Good for you! Because unlike liberals, conservatives will not tolerate an Obama-type leader from our own and will turn on them if they veer from what's constitutional and pro-America. Respect where respect is due.
Hope your friends changed their minds about Obama, Please tell me that you at least got at least one of them to change their minds.
I suspect a few have changed their minds. Many of my friends are co-workers and we work for a small business that has been hit hard by Obama regulations. So, I believe that they are aware but will not admit that they were wrong to vote for him in 2008. They will not vote for him again but I don't put them on the spot.
When Mitt started to speak he seemed almost overcome by the welcome and the crowd. I'm so happy that he is accepted now as "our guy," not the one we had to "settle for." He must feel very good about that. I remember back in spring when he didn't seem that confident of the depth of his support, and it must be so gratifying to see that all turned round.
I was able to see the rally in Henderson, NV earlier today. It's the first presidential rally I've been to since JFK visited my elementary school in 1960. (I told Mom to vote for JFK because he was cuter than that ugly old Nixon. lol) They both said they would go non-stop until Election day. This is an amazing team. I'm a 60 year old black woman who's voting for Romney/Ryan (in fact, for the first time, straight Republican), because I know if Obama gets another four years, I will be unemployed in less than two. I'm done with the symbolism and the history. American did well by electing him, but he's terrible so it's time to move on.
So glad you came around and are voting for the mans character this time. Funny how you kinda blend into a crowd like that, as it should be. ;o)
Hi Juli - I didn't vote for him the first time. I felt that he was unqualified (I put my HR hat on and didn't like his resume). He has given me no reason to regret my decision not to vote for him then. The difference is now I'm speaking out about it. Believe me, if you're black and come out of the conservative closet, you get slammed. It's not pretty, but I refuse to vote for Obama - it would be voting for my own economic destruction.
Glad to hear that too. I always look at it from an HR perspective after all we are the Bosses. ;o) I have many many conservative friends who are out of the closet who are of darker pigmentation and I know well the reaction so I commend you on standing on your principals. Do you have any that you follow like Kevin Jackson The Blacksphere or Sonnie Johnson, she is my girl? I love her perspective of a single mom? There is always comfort in numbers. The more the merrier I say.
Love your comment, and I hope there is more like you, make sure you get as many as you can to the polls, we need real people like you helping us. thank you
Here is the Gloria Allred Scandal to break in the morning
Breaking on TMZ-Mitt Romney was heavily involved in the extremely messy divorce of one of his key supporters ... and the Boston Globe is going to court first thing Wednesday morning in an attempt to unseal the court file as well as lift a gag order ... TMZ has learned.The divorce was between Staples co-founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife Maureen. We're told the divorce battle lasted for years and was extremely ugly.Sources tell us Romney gave both a deposition in the divorce and testified in the trial. According to our sources, the Boston Globe got a tip that there was "juicy information about Romney" in the sealed documents.Romney, Stemberg and Maureen were all served papers by the Globe notifying them that the paper was trying to unseal the case and lift the gag order enforced on all parties.According to an article in the Boston Globe in 2005, Maureen received nearly 500,000 shares of Staples stock in the divorce ... but sold have her shares before the company went public.Our sources say Tom has filed papers opposing the Globe's motion. Romney's lawyers have not responded.Tom has been a major Romney supporter, even speaking for five minutes at the Republican National Convention.We're told Gloria Allred represents someone connected with the divorce and we believe -- though we have not confirmed it -- that is Maureen. If the gag order is lifted, Maureen and others could freely talk about the divorce ... less than two weeks before the election.
Allred has no credibility, this is going to look like desperation, because they know Romney is in a train that can not be stopped.
Read it.... I still wonder under what "compelling need" or "good cause" will be sited to unseal and modify/remove the gag order... Bunch of nonsense so it should not be lifted and the gag order should remain....
If you type in Maureen Stemberg on google the name comes up for a poster on HuffPost and under her moniker it says obama/biden. But there is no way of knowing if that is her.
