A few highlights from Mitt Romney: Best suited to be the GOP’s standard-bearer
December 4, 2011
★ While making our endorsement in the New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary, Foster’s Sunday Citizen is not going to spend endless words addressing much of the myth and mythology which has been used to attack Mitt Romney, who we believe should be the Republican nominee for president of the United States.
★ Today, more than ever, the United States needs a president willing to listen to the electorate, a president willing to adapt to today’s demands for governance, not remain married to methods because they are from a simpler time. By the same token, Foster’s wants a president who has core values.
★ There is his time at Bain Capital where he learned the whys and wherefores of the business world and the keys to job creation. It was a place that formed much of Romney’s philosophical roots that should help grow the country’s economy should he be elected.
★ Then there was his time as Massachusetts governor. Some voters of a more conservative bent may hold that against him. We don’t. To the contrary, his ability to win office and improve the business climate in the Bay State is seen as herculean in an otherwise one-party Democratic oligarchy.
★ And lest we be remiss in crediting Romney’s accomplishments that make him better suited than others to be the GOP nominee, there is his turnaround of the Salt Lake City Olympic Games in 2002. Voters must not forget that Romney did, indeed, make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
★ Beyond all this, Foster’s is endorsing Mitt Romney because he offers a certain moral fortitude we admire. His faith in family, God and country is strong and well rooted. This, combined with a wealth of experience in private enterprise, his time as governor and countless hours listening to voters’ concerns, make Romney the most well-rounded and well-qualified to represent the GOP in next November’s presidential election.
