Festooned in red, white, and blue bunting, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library was the setting for an enthusiastic crowd of 700 or more as they welcomed former MA Governor Mitt Romney on Tuesday, May 25, 2010. Besides addressing the large crowd, Romney’s rousing Annual Reagan Lecture was also a live webcast.
It was quite a sight to see former First Lady Nancy Reagan enter the hall on the arm of Gov Romney. Another treat was when Mitt asked his wife, Ann Romney, to step to the podium to offer a few words. Questions and answers after Romney’s speech underscored, among other things, the concerns Americans have for the direction America is currently going. Excitement for another possible presidential run by Romney was evident!
The event also included an earlier book signing for Romney’s new best-selling book No Apology: The Case For American Greatness. Dinner was served after his speech.
UPDATE from Ross:
Here’s an excerpt from a review of the speech by one of the attendees:
One of the first things that impressed me about Romney was his grasp of facts. He didn’t use a Teleprompter, nor notes – just what was in his head. He spoke from the heart with a passion and love for America and the people who work so hard everyday just to make ends meet.
