On this eve before Super Tuesday, it was refreshing to see a couple of positive pieces for Mitt Romney on FOX News.
Today, Ann Romney was interviewed by Neil Cavuto. They both deal with the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis; Cavuto asked her about the rigors of campaigning. It was a wonderful exchange; Ann focused on Governor Romney’s ability to turn things around:
Featured in a phone interview today on the opening segment of FOX News’ The Five, charming and outspoken former First Lady Barbara Bush spoke on why she supports Mitt Romney. She also offered a second ‘unofficial’ endorsement for Romney on behalf of her husband, President, George H.W. Bush. In an interview with the Houston Chronicle on December 22, 2011, President Bush 41 said he was drawn to Romney’s “stability, experience, principles,” adding, “He’s a fine person. I just think he’s mature and reasonable – not a bomb-thrower.”
Last Friday, Mrs. Romney visited Romney campaign headquarters in Ohio to thank volunteers and cheer on supporters. While speaking, she highlighted the impact women are having in the election:
“The message that has been resonating for me, as I’ve been speaking all across this country, has been an economic message, and I love it that women are concerned and are voting for economic reasons. This is so important,” said Mrs. Romney. “What I hear from all women – I heard it in Florida, I heard it in Michigan, I heard it in Nevada, I heard it New Hampshire, I heard it everywhere, everywhere I go – is that moms are very angry about the deficit spending in Washington, D.C. They are very upset about the burdens their children are going to inherit, and they think it’s irresponsible of us to pass along that kind of burden to our children and grandchildren.”
“I think women in the general election are going to make a huge difference in this nation and … for the first time, may be voting their pocketbooks, which is great,” continued Mrs. Romney.
Mrs. Romney also referred to the introduction given to her by Barbara Bush (which the former first lady mentioned while speaking to The Five today):
“She said this is the most important election in my lifetime, and for a woman who was the wife of a president and the mother of a president, that’s quite astonishing,” said Mrs. Romney of Mrs. Bush. “She is as concerned as all of us are that America’s on the wrong course, that we’re going in the wrong direction, that so many families are hurting because of the economy and the insecurity of their jobs. Even if they have a job, they’re worried.”
Ann also shared why she was motivated to push Governor Romney to run for president again:
“What changed my mind is recognizing that Mitt had the skill set and the experience to actually do something … because I did say to him – if by chance you can get the nomination, which isn’t easy – if by chance you can beat Barack Obama, which isn’t easy – but by the way he’s going to do both of those things,” said Mrs. Romney. “I need to know in my heart can you fix it once you get there, and you want to know. Let me let you in on the little secret – he’s the only one that can, the only one that can.”
