Obama Says Americans “Lazy”, Romney Disagrees, Speaks to SC Workers (AUDIO)

We’ve been a litle bit lazy over the last couple of decades.” ~ Barack Obama speaking to CEOs at annual APEC meeting in Hawaii. Nov 12, 2011

Mitt Romney strongly disagrees with President Obama’s questionable campaign messaging that we Americans are ‘lazy’, have ‘lost our ambition’, and have become ‘soft’.

Workers at Colite International, an international sign-producing company in Columbia, South Carolina, heard Romney’s strong objections to Obama’s new campaign meme yesterday when he and wife, Ann, toured the facility.

Romney was introduced to employees by wife, Ann:

We need a leader who knows how to turn things around,” she said. “Mitt’s a turnaround guy.”

It was that simple exchange, their well-worn lines about being high school sweethearts and the details about their five children and 16 grandchildren that allowed Justin Mims to see the former Massachusetts governor as more than a two-dimensional political candidate.

Mims, a junior economics major at the University of South Carolina, said Romney seems to be a family man, and he likes that.

After the introduction from his wife at Colite International, Romney jumped into all the missteps he said President Barack Obama has made. Romney said they include the $787 billion federal stimulus package, cap-and-trade legislation, new regulations on the banking and finance industry, the federal health care law and appointing pro-union “stooges” to the National Labor Relations Board.

As president, Romney said he would repeal the heath care law signed by Obama in 2010, cut the federal workforce by 10 percent through attrition, and hand over control of Medicaid to states, among other measures he said would restore America to a “job-creating machine” and cut spending.
Mims was one of several college students and new graduates who came out to support Romney. Matt Mancini, a 23-year-old new University of South Carolina graduate, said he likes that Romney comes from a business background. Romney’s plan to downsize the government is something that will bring him a lot of support in South Carolina, Mancini said.

The White House hopeful spoke for about 15 minutes and was swarmed afterward by the press and supporters. He signed signs and bumper stickers and posed for pictures before heading off to the next stop on the campaign trail.

A few highlights from Romney’s excellent speech (no teleprompter needed):

“The things we make per person in America exceeds that of any other country in the world.”

“Our problem is not that the private sector isn’t productive enough. The problem is the government sector is too heavy and too burdensome and is keeping the private sector from growing and thriving like it should.”

“President Obama doesn’t understand it is NOT government that makes America strong. It is the free people of America that provide our future and our strength.”

American workers deserve a number of rights:
1. Right to a secret ballot
2. Right to at least 30 days notice before a union election
3. Right to work in a non-union state
4. Right to know if they are members of a union, they shouldn’t have dues taken out their paycheck to go to politicians they disagree with.

Listen to Romney’s complete speech (13:36):

Poll after poll in South Carolina reveals Romney in first or second place. A few days before his visit to Colite Intl, The Gov was in Mauldin, SC where he held a roundtable for veterans and he recently participated in the GOP debate in Spartanburg.

Romney to Tour Boeing Plant in SC, Deliver Labor Policy Speech

Looking ahead…

Before taking his place onstage at the next presidential debate (Monday, Sept 12th in Tampa, FL), Mitt Romney will first pay a visit that same day to the beautiful state of South Carolina to tour Boeing. Boeing is being sued by the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB) for building a plant in SC in what they view as retaliation for union strikes against the Boeing plant in Washington state.

While there, Governor Romney will also deliver a policy speech on unions which will include a proposed executive order giving workers a secret ballot option and opt-out from membership in a union. He spoke of this executive order earlier in the week at Senator Jim DeMint’s Palmetto Freedom Forum in Columbia, SC. To listen to Romney’s comments on unions, including right-to-work legislation, click here (2nd video @7:49).


COLUMBIA — White House hopeful Mitt Romney will wade into the union fight over the Boeing Company’s decision to locate in right-to-work South Carolina when he delivers a policy speech on labor after he tours the North Charleston plant Monday.

Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, will tour the facility in advance of the presidential debate in Tampa, Fla., later that day. Romney said at a GOP presidential forum in Columbia on Labor Day that union is not a bad word in itself, but the powerful labor organizations need to be kept in check.

The lawsuit that the National Labor Relations Board brought against Boeing for locating in South Carolina, considered an anti-union state by some, is the best example of why Romney wants to reverse the labor policies put forward by President Barack Obama, according to Romney’s campaign.

Gov. Nikki Haley said she welcomes Romney’s visit and his ideas. Haley, also a Republican, has been adamant in her fight against the labor board for its complaint against Boeing.

We appreciate not just the talk but the action Governor Romney has taken to understand and highlight the challenges NLRB has brought upon Boeing,” Haley said in a statement Friday. “It is a strong sign to the people of our state that he is focused on our jobs.”

(emphasis added)

Highlights from Romney’s labor policy speech:

• Romney’s labor policy will focus on free enterprise, free choice and free speech.
• Labor laws must be carried out even-handedly to provide businesses with the certainty they need to grow and thrive.
• The law must be clear: Any company is free to invest anywhere it wants.
• Workers have a right to vote on whether to unionize by secret ballot. That is a position that South Carolinians overwhelmingly support. In November, 86 percent of state voters approved a constitutional amendment that requires union elections to be conducted by secret ballot.
• Romney opposes so-called snap elections, or ambush elections, for votes on whether a company should unionize. He wants to build in protections that will ensure employers have time to protect their legal rights and talk to workers about the downsides of unions.
• Unions should raise cash for political contributions the same way any other business or supporter would, by asking for donations, not using paycheck dues to fund donations.

Governor Romney endorsed Haley when she sought South Carolina’s gubernatorial seat last fall.

Romney Packs the House in Denver, Hauls in Colorado Endorsements

Mitt Romney stopped by a packed Brewery Bar IV in Aurora, Colorado for about an hour on Monday afternoon to give a short speech, meet briefly with several small business owners, and meet and greet supporters.

Mitt mingles at Brewery Bar IV

I was fortunate enough to be among the 250 or so people crammed into the restaurant. There was certainly no shortage of excitement or enthusiasm from the crowd as Romney stuck to his main campaign theme so far: the economy. He passionately took Obama to task for instituting damaging economic policies and focusing on other pet-projects like card check and ObamaCare. We all cheered loudly when Mitt stated emphatically, “I love capitalism, I love the constitution!” Mitt’s optimism about America’s future is infectious and it’s clear to see that he is sincere about what he says.

Another thing I really appreciate about Governor Romney, is that he makes a priority of meeting his supporters and listening to what they have to say. After briefly meeting with several small business owners yesterday, Mitt started making the rounds. He went all the way around the restaurant to greet everyone who wanted to shake hands, speak with him, or get a photo with the next President. It’s not the first time I’ve seen this with Governor Romney. Clearly this is the norm for Mitt, and I highly respect him for it (but it must drive his staff crazy when they’re trying to get him to leave for the next event). I sincerely hope that you all will have the opportunity to meet Mitt at some point during this campaign because he is even more impressive in person. Thank you to everyone who was able to venture out to the Brewery Bar yesterday, it was a great time!

Monday was a great day for Colorado Romney supporters in other ways too. The campaign announced the endorsements of several prominent Republicans from the Centennial State. Former U.S. Senators Wayne Allard and Hank Brown pledged their support, as did former governor Bill Owens. The current state Attorney General and Treasurer are also backing Mitt.

Des Moines, Iowa Presidential Forum: Mitt Romney’s Smokin’ Hot Speech!

Scroll to the bottom for complete video (including Q&A) of the event…

It was a was busy day for Mitt Romney in Iowa today…

The morning began with The Gov speaking to employees at AgVision Agriculture Software:

Romney: Obama’s policies delayed economic recovery

Ankeny, Ia. – President Obama’s administration has added to business uncertainty and delayed economic recovery, Mitt Romney told agriculture business owners this morning.

“That’s one of my pet peeves of the current administration,” Romney said. “They’ve added so much uncertainty to the overall economy at the very time that businesses need to have greater certainty so that it can get capital, make loans, carry on its business, higher people, raise incomes.

He continued: “That’s one of the reasons that I view this downturn has taken such a long time from which to recover.”

(emphasis added ) Continue reading here.

Romney also did a walk-and-talk event today before being the kick-off speaker at the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Presidential Forum Speaker Series. The event was held in the State Historical Building in Des Moines, Iowa and was sponsored by the Greater Des Moines Partnership, Mediacom and IowaPolitics.com. CNN also provided livestream coverage.

Romney was delivering an excellent no-teleprompter, no-note speech about Obama’s lack of private sector experience and over-reaching policies i.e. Card Check, Cap ‘n Trade, Obamacare, debt spending, depressed economy, struggling home market, and more. Then, this happened:

Burned popcorn ends Mitt Romney’s speech after 27 minutes

After a fire alarm sounded 27 minutes into Mitt Romney’s speech, he decided to cut off the event for safety reasons.

“Uh-oh, they want to get us out of here, don’t they,” he said.

When the alarm paused, he continued speaking, tossing out some jokes. “I wasn’t trying to get out of tough questions,” he said with a laugh.

But the alarm resumed and, citing safety first, he asked everyone to evacuate.

Romney stood just outside the doors in the covered passenger dropoff driveway, talking to Iowans amid a pack of reporters until a state cultural affairs official ordered everyone to cross the street.

“There are things in this building that could blow up,” said the official, Maureen Korte, director of special projects and programming for the State Historical Society of Iowa, as she urgently hustled people away from the building.

The fire department arrived within minutes.

Just as Romney climbed into a waiting Chevy Suburban, Korte yelled, “All clear!”

Good thing The Gov is such a good sport! Being the first speaker for the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Presidential Forum, he helped them work out the kinks – like keeping inattentive popcorn aficianados away from the microwave…

Paperback Release of ‘No Apology’ by Mitt Romney: New Intro Critical of Obama, Romney on Media Blitz

The paperback version of Mitt Romney's book 'No Apology' will be released today.

It was on March 2, 2010 that Mitt Romney laid out his detailed vision for America in his comprehensive book No Apology: The Case for American Greatness. Today, nearly a year later, No Apology is being released in paperback and Romney is making the rounds on TV.

Along with a new subtitle ‘Believe in America’ which continues the optimistic, patriotic theme from his hardback edition (and which the Gov is sure to explain), and after nearly a year’s time has passed under the Obama administration since the original release of No Apology, the paperback version includes a new introduction that is catching fresh attention:

Mitt Romney critical of Obama in new introduction to ‘No Apology’

WASHINGTON — Former governor Mitt Romney, in a new introduction to his book, strongly criticizes President Obama, writing that “my worst fears about the president have come true” and that his policies “are smothering the American dream.”

“Rather than focusing his energy and political capital on solving the economic crisis, he exploited it to promote his extreme liberal agenda,” Romney writes in the new paperback version of “No Apology,” according to excerpts provided to the Boston Globe.

“We need a U-turn from the policies of the past few years,” he adds.

Romney is expected to expound on such a line of attack in a round of radio and television interviews Tuesday and Wednesday. Ostensibly, the interviews are part of a media tour for the paperback version of his book, but with just over a year before GOP primary voters go to the polls, interviewers are likely to ask Romney about his presidential ambitions.

(my emphasis)

A reminder of the Tea Party principles which undergirded his past presidential run (remember ‘Washington is Broken’?) is evidenced in the new intro, as well as Romney’s criticism of progressives’ push for bigger government:

“They simply do not believe in America as it was shaped by the Founders,” he writes. “They do not believe that the principles and values that made America a great nation still apply.”

“Like the monarch the revolutionaries rejected, they have no limit on the amount they would tax the people and their enterprises,” he adds. “Rather than admire the heritage of peaceful assembly and petition, they ridicule and demean assemblies of ordinary citizens who protest their grand health care plans, takeovers, and bailouts.”

Romney also strongly criticizes the president’s health care law. […]

“They have enacted 2,000 pages of health care legislation, and while the politicians did not take the time to read it before they voted, small businesses will have no choice but to read and comply with every one of its new mandates and provisions,” Romney writes.

Read more here.

Anyone who cares about the future of our nation would do America a great service by taking the time to digest No Apology by Mitt Romney. At around $10 per paperback copy, it’s a real path-to-greatness bargain.

Stay tuned here at MRC; we’ll post videos of Romney’s appearances on Good Morning America, The View, Piers Morgan Tonight, and Letterman as soon as they are available. Never one to rest, Romney will be a guest tomorrow (Wed Feb 2nd) on several conservative radio programs: Don Imus, Laura Ingraham, and Hugh Hewitt.

Romney Praises Candidates-Elect for GOP’s Sweeping Midterm Victory: “ Honor Pledge to America”

Mitt Romney on election night, Nov 2, 2010.

After all the candidates endorsed, flying coach across thousands of miles, pulling his suitcase in and out of hotel rooms, speeches given, funds raised, McDonalds meals on the road, and many days away from his beloved Ann, Governor Mitt Romney is delighted with yesterday’s election results.

Now that Romney has unlaced his elect-conservatives-running shoes, Jason Matter from Human Events was able to catch up with the him. Romney hopes Republicans keep their pledge:


With its historic gains in the House of Representatives, the biggest thing the GOP can do right now is “honor the Pledge to America,” Mitt Romney told HUMAN EVENTS. “This election was a referendum on Obama’s agenda,” and the electorate took a decisive stand against the Democrat Party’s “excessive spending, borrowing, and growth of government.”

“Our [GOP] majority is growing,” the former Massachusetts governor went on to say, noting that House Republicans will end up with a net gain of more than 60 seats in the House, easily blowing past the 39 they needed to regain the Majority.

While many conservatives are disappointed about the losses in Nevada and West Virginia, Romney said that Republicans should highlight their victories in New England, where GOP challengers Charlie Bass and Frank Guinta beat Democratic incumbents to take House seats and where Kelly Ayotte held on to Judd Gregg’s Senate seat.

“It goes to show you that when you have strong candidates with a compelling message, Independents will get behind you,” even in a blue state like New Hampshire. Asked if the impressive GOP showing inches him closer to a 2012 presidential run, Romney said he’s “not thinking about that right now.

“I’m basking in the delight of our historic news.”

(my emphasis)

Thank you, Governor Romney, for contributing so much toward yesterday’s GOP victories!

You deserve some time off. But, don’t be gone too long…

It’s Tsunami Tuesday! Republicans Hope to Make Big Waves, Referendum Against Obama

It’s Tsunami Tuesday!

At last; midterm election day 2010 has arrived! And, Americans aren’t happy…

Washington (CNN)

The number of Americans who say things are going badly in the country, at 75 percent, is higher than it has been on the eve of any midterm election since the question was first asked in the mid-1970s, according to a new national poll.

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that the economy remains, by far, the top issue on the minds of Americans. Fifty-two percent of people questioned say the economy’s the most important issue facing the country.

“That’s more than the deficit, education, health care, terrorism, energy, illegal immigration and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq combined,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “No other issue was named as the country’s top problem by more than 8 percent.”

The economy has been the issue most on the mind of Americans in CNN polling since the end of 2007.

The top concern remains unemployment, with 58 percent saying it’s the most important economic issue facing the country today, followed by the deficit at 20 percent, and taxes and mortgages tied at 8 percent each.

USA Today/Gallup took a final temperature of Americans heading into the election. What they discovered was a surprising 15-point gap in favor of Republican voters. This is unprecedented in the history of Gallup polling and could signal the largest Republican margin in the House in the last 60 years. Republicans could chalk up 60 seats, with more possible. It’s an indicator of a walloping wave of Republican victories that will rush across the country today.

When Obama was asked about similarities between Bill Clinton’s policies and the sweep of Republicans into office in 1994, he replied: ‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’ That’s the problem, President Obama.

February 8, 2010 – Obama not concerned that Dems will get their clocks cleaned:

Even though three out of four Americans think things are going badly, and however high the expectations for conservative victories, no one can sit on their sofa and figure others’ votes will carry the day.

Get to the polls and make some waves!

Obama Admits Mistakes, Shovel-Ready Projects Don’t Exist, Democrats Flee

Obama has been in office for almost two years now. Once he uttered the presidential oath, and without so much as a glance at the GOP side of the aisle, he commenced constructing his idea of change-we-can-believe-in USA.

The President and his Capitol Hill cohorts crafted cleverly-worded colossal bills that were completed just before vote time, making them impossible to read before they were voted into law. Arm-twisting, brow-beating, and secret shady deals were his methods of choice to ensure passage of legislation which massively expanded government power, added astronomical amounts to our deficit, and increased our entitlement burdens.

Obama justified the necessity for his $787 billion Stimulus Bill (or ‘stim’ as Ma’am Senator Barbara Boxer calls it) on the fact that lots of “shovel-ready projects” were ready to go and needed funding. He hammered home the idea that funding these shovel-ready projects would mean economic recovery and jobs. Just a few days ago, in a New York Times story, our President admitted he’s made a few mistakes – among them that there is no such thing as shovel-ready projects.

We are seeing shovels hit the ground.” – Obama at Dept of Transportation March 3, 2009

Fox Nation October 13, 2010:

With regard to his first large legislative effort, the $787 billion federal stimulus, it took too long for him to realize “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects,” Obama said.

That’s a nearly TRILLION dollar goof.

“…there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects…”

More admissions from Obama:

The Times’s Peter Baker wrote: “Perhaps he should not have proposed tax breaks as part of his stimulus and instead ‘let the Republicans insist on the tax cuts’ so it could be seen as a bipartisan compromise.”

Obama said he let himself be perceived as “the same old tax-and-spend liberal Democrat,” as opposed to the new model of politician some thought he would be following his 2008 campaign.

Though Obama has accused Republicans of opposing his agenda for political gain, in the interview the president said whatever the result of the midterms, his relationship the GOP would be different starting in 2011.

“It may be that regardless of what happens after this election, they feel more responsible,” he said. “Either because they didn’t do as well as they anticipated, and so the strategy of just saying no to everything and sitting on the sidelines and throwing bombs didn’t work for them, or they did reasonably well, in which case the American people are going to be looking to them to offer serious proposals and work with me in a serious way.”

Obama says his mistake was letting himself be perceived as the same old tax-and-spend liberal. That’s what he IS. He then states that he hopes after midterm results are counted that his relationship with the GOP will be different. Really? In the next breath, he continues to divert attention from his mistakes by blaming Republicans… again. Not a way to win friends and influence people on the other side of the aisle.

Democrats are running from Obama’s record as fast as they can. Meanwhile, false claims are being flung and dirty tricks continue. Obama hopes to pump up his beleaguered base and is embarking on a western campaign blitz tomorrow to better communicate that Dems aren’t dastardly and change takes time. Hope the 10% unemployed and 18% underemployed can hang on.

Let’s hope we begin to shovel our way out of Obama’s goofs on mid-term election day, November 3rd.
