Presidential Race in Rear View Mirror: Romney Ran Classy, Tough, Big Issues Campaign

Nov 7, 2012: The morning after the election Mitt Romney relaxed with his family in Boston and shared a favorite treat – chocolate milk. While tweeting this photo, Mitt’s Body Man DG Jackson wrote, “Gov hanging out with family this morning. What an incredible family. So blessed to be so close to them.”

A rear view mirror look at the presidential election…

A headline yesterday announced the Romney campaign was shellshocked. Well, duh. Who wouldn’t be? I was. We all were.

With our nation in dire straits, we believed, hoped, and prayed our fellow Americans would see Obama’s vicious smears, lies, class warfare, and unrelenting personal attacks on Governor Romney for what it was. Gutter distraction. Unable to run on his record, knowing the real obstacle to his reelection was the economy, Obama and team decided early on to “kill” Romney with the aforesaid Chicago thuggery tactics. And a complicit mainstream media aided and abetted them.

We will lead. We will lead again. We’ll have the jobs we need, the incomes we deserve, the respect we should receive around the world. That future is out there. It is waiting for us.

The Moment! Mitt & Ann Romney, Paul & Janna Ryan Cast Ballots (VIDEO)

Tagg Romney shared this early morning photo at the voting precinct in Belmont, MA: “Voting for my Dad for President was an emotional experience this am.” The Romneys (left to right): The Gov, Joseph, Ann, Tagg, Jen, and Allie

A grand and important moment took place this morning at about 8:40 A.M. eastern time.

Governor Mitt Romney, Republican presidential nominee, and his wife, Ann, cast their ballots for the United States presidency at the Beech Street Center precinct near their home in bedford, Massachusetts.

I’m pretty sure we know who they voted for!

Here’s a behind-the-scenes report from ABC’s Muir:


The moment! Mitt and Ann vote::

The GOP candidate, accompanied by his wife, Ann, told reporters he feels “very, very good” about his overall chances and “great about Ohio.”

A fairly large crowd greeted the Romneys when they arrived at the polling station, according to reports. …[A] woman held a sign that read: “Mitt and Ann enjoy your new White House.”

Romney shared a kiss with Ann after casting his vote, whose stop at the polling station was just the start of a busy election day for the GOP nominee. He heads next to Cleveland, Ohio, where running mate Paul Ryan is expected to pay a visit as well. Then Romney heads onward to Pittsburgh while Ryan travels to Richmond, before reuniting for the Republican ticket’s election night party in Boston.

Romney son Tagg and little cutie patootie grandson, Joseph, went with The Gov to Cleveland where they will join with Paul Ryan to do a little retail politicking. Romney will then go on to Pittsburgh, PA, and Ryan will go to Richmond, VA. Ann Romney will remain in Boston today where all will reunite to await election results.

Obama is in Chicago today making a few phone calls and playing basketball.

Another memorable moment; Paul and Janna vote!

GOP Vice Presidential candidate Congressman Paul Ryan and wife, Janna, cast their votes today in Janesville, Wisconsin. Their three adorable children, Lisa, Charlie, and Sam, accompanied them.


Senior Romney Campaign Adviser Ed Gillespie appeared early this morning on FOX & Friends. “Mitt Romney will win decisively.

Ed Gillespie: “The fact is, we can’t afford four more years like the last four years. And Governor Romney has been out there putting forward a positive vision and a plan to turn the economy around, to create 12 million jobs, unleash domestic energy, get us to a balanced budget. That’s why he’s got momentum here on election day. And I think that’s why he’s going to win tonight, not just win, but win decisively. I don’t think there’s going to be any doubt at the end of tonight who the next president is going to be.”



VOTE FOR ROMNEY & RYAN!

“Imagine what Barack can do in four more years!” Mrs. Obama Helping to Elect Romney?

Is Michelle Obama thinking about more vacations she can take if her husband gets four more years? (photographer unknown)

Well… How’s this for motivation to GET OUT THE VOTE for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan?

Michelle Obama asked twitter users yesterday: “Imagine what Barack can do in four more years!”

I’ve been with Mitt Romney Central since its inception and I’ve never written an article about Michelle Obama. I didn’t write about the time Michelle said “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.” I didn’t utter a peep about the time when Michelle, confiding to then-First Lady of France, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, on her own job as First Lady, supposedly said “It’s hell. I can’t stand it!” (Both later denied it.) Nothing from me regarding our First Lady’s aversion to placing her hand over heart when our national anthem is played. I’ve never pointed out the way the press hits Ann Romney for her clothing choices, but gives Michelle a pretty pass and plenty of praise. No keyboard clacking from me about the time Mrs. Obama went to a food bank wearing $540 sneakers. I didn’t mention the time Mrs. Obama inferred that a vote for Mitt Romney would cause women to die from cancer. I haven’t written about the way Michelle’s ‘Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act’ forces some school kids to go hungry. And, I didn’t post an article about Mrs. O’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in September – the fairytale she presented of her and Barack’s struggles.

Today, the First Lady’s tweet changed my mind.

Imagine what Barack can do in four more years?

Uh, Michelle, you’re killin’ me.

Maybe you’re thinking about what YOU can do with four more years.

Besides all the pricey trips to Martha’s Vineyard, Aspen, and Hawaii, remember in the summer of 2010 when the Obamas encouraged Americans to visit the oil-stricken Gulf Coast and then high-tailed it, lickety-split, for a family vacation in Maine? Remember how shortly after returning from Maine, Michelle Obama then jetted off for a private, closed-to-the-press, luxurious vacation in Spain? (To jog your memory, that was the time she took her youngest daughter and an entourage of long-time family friends and lounged at the ritzy Costa del Sol hotel.) Remember when she and her girls took off for a family vacation and within an hour, her husband followed. She wouldn’t wait for him so we got to pay for two jets!

Here’s the Obama three-and-a-half-years vacation list:

– President’s Day 2012, Michelle and the first daughters in Aspen, Colorado to ski.
– Christmas 2011, the first family in Hawaii for an extended vacation.
– Summer 2011, in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., for the annual beach break.
– June 2011, the first lady, her mother and daughters traveled to South Africa and Botswana.
– President’s Day 2011, the first lady and first daughters travel to Vail to ski.
– Christmas 2010, in Hawaii.
– August 2010, the first family traveled to Panama City Beach, Fla., for sun and fun at the beach.
– August 2010, Obama spent the weekend alone in Chicago for his 49th birthday bash.
– August 2010, the first lady and daughter Sasha traveled to Spain for a mother-daughter vacation.
– August 2010, summer vacation again at Martha’s Vineyard.
– July 2010, the first family went to Mount Desert Island, Maine.
– May 2010, the first family had a four-day trip to Chicago.
– March 2010, first lady and daughter spend Spring Break in New York City.
– Christmas 2009, Hawaii again for the annual break.
– August 2009, at Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon for a short vacation.
– August 2009, their first summer vacation as first family at Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

Video montage of Mrs. Obama’s jolly jaunts at taxpayer expense:

Yeah, Michelle may have more chi-chi-foo-foo-taxpayer-footing-the-bill vacations on her bucket list.

It was a travesty the way the mainstream media made a big stink about the Romneys this past 4th of July for sharing their own paid-for jet ski with family and friends – at their home on Lake Winnipesaukee. Meanwhile, they’ve overlooked Michelle Obama’s love for lap-of-luxury vacations (which comes out of our penny-jingling pockets).

  • Speaking of expensive jaunts, here’s another point… There’s a stark contrast in how the Obama campaign pays its bills and how responsible and frugal Mitt Romney is – even down to the hotel accommodations he chooses. DO read more here.

  • Imagine what Barack can do in four more years? He’ll finish destroying the USA.

    Here’s what a few other Americans think:

    (Hat tip / Twitchy)

  • What are Michelle Obama and her husband so proud of?

    Their hubris over such a failed record makes one’s eyes bug out and shoot blood! I will not use my last-full-day-of-Romney-campaign energy to go into the havoc and destruction Mr. O has brought upon us. Here’s my summary:

    No, Michelle. We don’t want to imagine what your husband can do with four more years! (By cartoonist Gary Varvel – Nov 4, 2012)

    Milwaukee County Fairgrounds, Friday morning, Nov 2nd / Photo: Charles Dharapak / AP

    Two days ago, Governor Romney held a rally at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin fairgrounds early in the morning. The crowd was so large, they had to open up overflow areas. And all of it with “frosty” temperatures!

    You have to see this video of many of the women in attendance who spoke up for Governor Romney. Somehow, they didn’t get the message from Obama that Romney is waging a war on women! Click here to see the video:


    VIDEO

    Rebel Pundit (what a great name for a reporter!) gives us this glimpse from the event:

    The energy was enthusiastic and upbeat for Romney supporters. Female voters spoke to me about the most important issues to them this coming Tuesday. The overwhelming response was jobs, the economy, and a better future for their children and grandchildren.

    Many expressed tremendous concern for their kids, who are already struggling to find jobs, even with a college degree. They also flatly rejected that there is a “war on women” which President Obama’s campaign claims is being waged by the Republican Party, Mitt Romney, and Paul Ryan.

    Attendees also felt strongly that the momentum is on the side of Mitt Romney.

    Democrat Caddell: “Dishonor!” “Outrage!” “Shame!” “Fundamental Threat!” “Enemies!” (#Video)

    Before you vote Tuesday, please watch this entire video and listen carefully to this emotional outcry on behalf of four Americans that were assassinated in Libya, and their families. The cover-up continues unabated. As Americans, will we let Barack Obama get away with this?

    Democrat Pat Caddell:

    “This White House. This president. This vice president. This secretary of state. All of them are willing apparently to dishonor themselves and this country for the cheap prospect of getting reelected; are willing to cover-up and lie and the worst thing is, the very people who are supposed to protect the American people with the truth, the leading mainstream media . . . They have become a fundamental threat to American democracy and the enemies of the American people!”

    “Real Change from Day One” — Inspirational Speech (#Video)

    Governor Romney’s speech in Wisconsin yesterday is truly inspirational and powerful. Please take the time today to listen to the speech many are referring to as his “Closing Arguments.” I wrote down many favorite quotes from it. What is your favorite quote from the speech? My two favorites are these:

    “I won’t just take office. I’m going to take responsibility for that office on January 20th!”

    “I won’t waste any time complaining about my predecessor!”
