Mitt and Ann Romney with youngest son, Craig, and his, wife Mary.
After hosting a Memorial Day tribute in San Diego, CA last week, Republican presidential candidate Governor Mitt Romney and wife, Ann, invited FOX News’ Bill Hemmer to hang out with them at their youngest son’s home (Craig) in San Diego. Hemmer aired his interviews under the banner of Getting to Know the Romneys. (Videos are posted here.)
I found a bonus ‘postscript’ video of that day which features Craig Romney sharing more about his parents. Enjoy!
Bill Hemmer: “What kind of advice has he [Gov Romney] passed to you?”
Craig Romney: “He’s rarely kind of taken me aside and said you need to do this and you need to that. It’s always been more of a ‘lead by example’ … and, just kind of watching him as I grew up – seeing his dedication, his integrity…”
A couple of wonderful photos of the day’s earlier events…

NOTE: Romney supporters and GOP commentators frequently say insight/stories as to who Governor Romney really is should be shared with the public. That information will likely be given in bits and pieces – not an ‘Obama style’ full-on documentary. This short video is a good opportunity to share a bit of enlightenment about Mitt Romney – the man.
Mitt Romney talks with FOX News' Bill Hemmer - San Diego, CA May 28, 2012
After Mitt Romney’s Memorial Day Tribute in San Diego was over, he and Ann sat down to talk with Bill Hemmer, co-host of America’s Newsroom (FOX News). Hemmer said it wasn’t going to be a policy interview, but an attempt to learn more about the two of them and the campaign. Long-time Romney supporters like hearing that! It’s time for America to know what we know – that two nicer people can’t be found.
America, you’re in for a treat! Here are the first two videos:
Part 1 – Getting to the know the Romneys
Part 2 – Mitt and Ann Romney talk faith and family
UPDATE: I like the red, white, and blue combo of Mitt and Ann’s shirts, but just realized the floral print our next First Lady is wearing are poppies – for Memorial Day. Nice touch, Ann!
Good stuff! Additional segments are posted below the fold. (more…)
