Romney on Democratic Convention: “So far, a celebration of failure” (VIDEO)

After learning of some of the distortions and lies slamming out of the first day of the Democratic National Convention, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney today interrupted his debate prep to speak with FOX News’ chief political correspondent Carl Cameron.

Cameron characterized Romney as “chomping at the bit” to speak. The interview place took before Democrats this afternoon stunningly flip-flopped on removing ‘God’ and Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel in their platform. (‘God’ and ‘Jerusalem’ were restored; the vote took three times. Even then, the majority call was questionable.)

Cameron asked Mitt Romney specifically about the president’s recent comments giving himself an incomplete grade for his first term. Romney responded, “Incomplete usually means that you’ve got to go back and take the course again. I don’t think the American people want to see this president get another four years. The last four years have not been good for the middle class in America. There’s no question but that his policies have led to more people falling out of the middle class into poverty.”

Romney continued, “Those who think that they’re better off than they were four years ago, they may decide to vote for him, but the great majority of Americans, who recognize we’re not better off than we were four years ago, recognize his policies are not what is needed to get the middle class growing with more take-home pay and more jobs.”

Here’s Governor Romney (location was in an auto supply building in New Lebanon, New Hampshire):



Not one speaker at the Democrat convention has said Americans are better off today than they were four years ago. Another statistic they’re ignoring is when Obama took office, the number of Americans on food stamps was 32 million. Today, 47 MILLION Americans rely on food stamps. And, not a peep from them today about Obama’s latest staggering whoop-ti-doo accomplishment… America has passed the $16 trillion debt mark.

Obama isn’t an “incomplete” president, he’s disastrous (completely).

After listening last night to the angry, distorted rhetoric coming out of Charlotte, NC, it’s great to see Romney speak out today.

It’s also imperative we share this interview far and wide.

He is Risen! Happy Easter from the Mitt Romney Central Team

UPDATE - Mitt Romney issued the following Easter statement:

“As we take time off of the campaign trail to gather with family and friends this Easter weekend, we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and the hope which he brought to all of mankind. We are thankful for our brave men and women in uniform who are serving our country in the armed forces and are away from their families on this special day and we pray for their safe return home. And may the hope and promise which we celebrate at Easter remain with all of us throughout the year.”


O, grave… Where is thy victory?

He is risen!

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week,
came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

And, behold, there was a great earthquake:
for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven,
and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

And the angel answered and said unto the women,
Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead;
and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy;
and did run to bring his disciples word.

And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail.

And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

~ Matthew 28: 1-9

Mitt and Ann Romney Attend ‘Points of Light’ Gala Honoring Volunteerism, Pres and Mrs. George H. W. Bush

Mitt and Ann Romney attend the 'Points of Light' Dinner honoring President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush. Washington DC, March 20, 2011

Mitt and Ann Romney attended the prestigious Points of Light gala honoring President George H. W. Bush. Held in the Kennedy Performing Arts Center (Washington D.C.) on Sunday, March 20, 2011, the All Together Now: A Celebration of Service event was a historic night celebrating the essential role volunteerism plays in strengthening America.


Along with 2300 attendees, three of the four sitting presidents were present (Obama was traveling in South America; he taped a video tribute to President Bush.) Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, Darius Rucker, Reba McEntire, and Carrie Underwood were among the entertainers.

Points of Light blog:

[...] Tonight we honor President and Mrs. George H. W. Bush for their leadership in founding and advancing the modern-day service movement in the Tribute event All Together Now: A Celebration of Service in Washington, D.C.
[...]
This historic event was created to celebrate the power of voluntary action and its essential role in solving our national challenges and to recognize everyone around the nation who are positively changing the lives of others. The audience is made up of many of the Daily Points of Light Award winners along with those who are closely connected to the service movement.

In a Fox News interview earlier this month President George H. W. Bush discussed the importance of volunteering and specifically Points of Light Institute saying: “I keep repeating there could be no definition of a successful life that does not include service to others. That is what the whole concept of Points of Light is about and volunteerism.”

President George H. W. Bush encourages everyone to get involved in civic service: “Get in the arena in doing something, making something happen, trying to benefit others, and that’s noble.”

Geroge H. W. Bush served as Pres Reagan's Vice President. In 1989, he succeeded Reagan in the presidency.

Neil Bush, son of the elder President Bush and Points of Light Board Chairman, said that his father helped launch the Points of Light Institute in 1990 “to inspire, equip and mobilize people to take action that changes the world.”

Bush’s commitment to public service dates back to World War II, when he became the youngest fighter pilot in the U.S. military. He followed his father, a Connecticut senator, into elective office as a Republican congressman from Houston from 1967 to 1971. Among the other lines on his long résumé: U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Republican National Committee chairman, U.S. envoy to China, CIA director, vice president and president.

Honoring President Bush: The Event

According to son Neil, the ever-modest elder President Bush needed a little arm twisting to go along with the celebration[...]. But he agreed to attend, given that the night is also about so many others who volunteer their time to their communities.

Not to be overlooked, former First Lady Barbara Bush has been a powerful advocate for family literacy:


The Points of Light gala will be broadcast for all to watch on Monday March 28th from 8-9 p.m. on NBC.

Thank you, President George H. W. Bush, for championing volunteerism. We greatly appreciate the exemplary service you and Mrs. Bush continue to give our nation.

UPDATE: It was an honor to see this article mentioned on the Points of Light Institute website!
