I became a Mitt Romney fan in June 2006. When I was considering who the GOP nominee might be I decided to check into Romney because I wasn’t too excited about the only other two options at the time which were McCain and Giuliani. As a social conservative the prospect of a President Giuliani didn’t thrill me, and I still had some residual dislike of McCain and his demeanor leftover from the 2000 campaign. I knew very little about Romney except that he ran the Utah Olympics (I knew nothing of the scandals before he came), and that he went on from there to become Governor of Massachusetts.
When I started looking into Romney I ran into the ComMITTed to Romney blog, which was then know as Elect Romney in 2008. It was founded by Ann Marie Curling and it was unique as it was the ONLY pro-Romney blog at the time, but at that time I didn’t even know what a blog was. Now there are too many pro-Romney blogs to count. I instantly became a regular reader out of curiosity. After about three weeks of reading everything I could about Romney and studying his resume, I became quite convinced that he was the most qualified person to lead this country. I felt so strongly about this that for the first time in my life I became “politically active”.
Subsequently, Ann Marie invited me to be a writer for ComMITTed to Romney and I was thrilled and very grateful. From there I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Boston and Las Vegas for fundraising, DC to blog about CPAC, and Iowa to campaign for the caucuses. My wife, my brothers (and my sister too), and even neighbors have all been a great help in trying to spread the word about Romney. I’ve come to enjoy politics, and have learned much along the way.
I feel that Romney is singularly qualified to be President of this great nation. He has the know-how, ambition, and perseverance to steer the country back onto a course of fiscal sanity, minimizing the size and scope of the federal government, and taking the proper steps necessary to protect and defend this land that we so dearly love.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy our site. I also hope that it will have the most important effect on you that a blogger can hope for: spur you to activism.
GO ROMNEY IN 2012!!
