Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Packed As Mitt Romney Delivers Annual Reagan Lecture (Video)

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.

Mitt Romney 2012!

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.

  2. Puerto Rico cannot become the 51st state unless it changes its form of government to a Republic with three branches of government like all the rest of our other 50 states.

    The Constitution of the United States guarantees to every state a Republican form of government (Art. 4, Sec. 4). No state may join the United States unless it is a Republic. Our Republic is one dedicated to “liberty and justice for all.” Minority individual rights are the priority.

    Great presentation. If this man isn’t elected president, it will be a mistake that will be incredibly difficult to recover from.

    I just finished watching Romney’s Annual Reagan Lecture speech again. He is a stellar American patriot – uniquely qualified to lead America through the ominous challenges we face. His knowledge and strength inspire me.

    Mitt Romney = VANGUARD.

    P.S. When the speech was over and Mitt approached Mrs. Reagan, I loved the way she pat-patted him on the back. God bless Nancy.

    P.P.S. And, may He smile upon Mitt and Ann, too.

    I loved the speech and Q&A, brilliant, and no teleprompter!

  6. James Levine says:

    Great speech, Mitt!!!
    America needs your leadership now more than ever.
    Keep up the good fight.
    You’re a great American.
    May G_d bless you!

    Awesome. Go Mitt. Wish everybody could file under your leadership?

    To: Mitt Romney I don’t understand why you would campaign for John Mccain in Mesa, AZ, next week. I remember when Gov Huckabee & McCain ganged up on you in the Primary campaign in WV in the 2008 election, blending their votes together when you were leading them by quite a margin in that primary. I don’t consider McCain as a “friend” of yours. Then McCain was “mealy” mouthed during the campaign against Obama and lost.

    I have no change to submit. I feel just as I typed my comment.

    As always, Mitt Romney presents himself as an honorable statesman who has the strength of leadership, the economic expertise and the love of country to be a President of whom we can be proud. Our challenge is to compel the Republican Party to get behind him and support him as well as the conservative personalities and religious leaders. Then, we need to encourage Governor Huckabee to stay on FOX and out of the election process and let Newt Gingrich know that while we respect and appreciate his historical expertise and speaking clarity, the press will see that his campaign is ineffective and he should support Governor Romney. No one is perfect, but Mitt Romney is the best candidate conservatives can get behind to save our country.

  11. Andy Barrett says:

    It was a pleasure to listen to Gov. Romney’s speech. He would be a president that would renew our pride in our country and get us back on solid ground again. I’m optimistic that he will run in 2012 and I pray he wins!

  12. Ian says:

    News flash Mike R. Puerto Rico has a Republic government with an executive and legislative branch. According to the Jones Act of 1917 Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens and can have a popularly-elected legislature as well as a popularly-elected Governor, just like a State.

  13. Aaronius says:

    That question and answer session was OFF THE HOOK! Thank you for changing your mind, Ann!

  14. Justin says:

    Run, Mitt, Run!

    We need you baaaaaaaaaaadly!
