Romney’s New Ad ‘Melanie’: She Believed Obama’s Promises. Got PRANKED.

Back in 2008, when then-Senator Barack Obama and all his charismatic aura swept onto the national stage as a candidate for President of the United States, he promised a lot of things. Among them, he loudly, proudly, proclaimed he’d bring the USA back to prosperity. Melanie McNamara believed in him. He convinced her. Like many, she voted for him. Three and a half years later, Obama has UNconvinced her.

Obama’s proclamations were prattle.

Melanie McNamara got PRANKED.

Now, Melanie wants to MAKE SURE America’s economy is growing again.

Melanie is voting for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Today, Romney for President released a new television advertisement titled “Melanie.”


“In 2008, I voted for Barack Obama. He doesn’t have my vote this time.

Why Mitt Romney? Being a woman, you think about your children and you think about their future. And what I want to think about is a future that has jobs. That our economy’s growing again. That’s important to women and it’s important to me.” – Melanie McNamara

The nearly incomprehensible national debt, over SIXTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS and racing, is a HUGE issue for women. Women are appalled that the back-breaking, crippling, immoral national debt will fall upon the young shoulders of the ones they sacrifice so much for – their children. The next generation will absolutely be clobbered with the crushing responsibility to repay the massive dollars borrowed and squandered by crony-concerned, devil-may-care, back-slapping, unaccountable politicians on Capitol Hill. Obama is chief among them. He’s recklessly added more debt than the first 41 presidents combined.

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane…

Back in 2008, when Obama was finagling for the presidency, he ecstatically pinned the ‘unpatriotic, irresponsible’ label on President George W. Bush for his enlargement of the national debt:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic. – Barack Obama, July 3, 2008

Once ensconced in the Oval Office, Obama put on his heretofore unknown amnesia hat; you know, the one that conveniently makes him forget his promises and do the complete opposite of what he pledged. He couldn’t wait to get his redistributive hands on Uncle Sam’s credit card. Obama couldn’t spend (and waste) fast enough – roughly $6 trillion in 3.5 years.

Townhall’s Guy Benson adds: Romney Ad – Newborn Infants Now Owe $50,000 Toward National Debt:

[E]very “man, woman and child” now owes over $51,000. Obama’s unanimously-rejected budget would explodes that debt by $11 trillion …(more!) over the next decade. So much for his promises to thoroughly examine federal spending “line by line” to achieve a “net spending cut” while slicing the deficit in half by now. It’s almost as if he just says whatever he thinks will help get him elected, then does whatever he pleases once in office. This must stop. Mitt Romney’s new television ad, entitled “Dear Daughter,” makes the issue of inter-generational theft and reckless government spending very personal:

And, what have Obama’s policies done for women? Another ad from Team Romney/Ryan:

Obama’s policies are making it harder on women.

The poverty rate for women is the highest it has been in 17 years.

Over 5.5 million women are unemployed and their individual share of debt is over $50,000.

Fellow Americans, if you truly care about your children’s future, you must reject Barack Obama and Joe Biden. It’s okay to let them go. Don’t let them continue to steal the future from America’s children. You must vote for the two men who know how to get our economy going again, with rising salaries, and who will work with all their might to lower, not increase, our national debt.

Romney Speaks on Issues With NH Newspaper Editorial Board (video segments)

Mitt Romney had a sit-down with the Portsmouth Herald editorial board in New Hampshire today. He covered a wide variety of topics including social issues, health care, capital punishment, energy policy, and more:

Romney presents presidential plans at Portsmouth meeting

By Deborah Mcdermott
November 3, 2011

PORTSMOUTH — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said if he had the opportunity to appoint a Supreme Court justice he or she would be in the mold of Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts.

“Their approach is the approach I would encourage,” he said. “I would try to find those who would follow the Constitution.”

The U.S. Supreme Court should not create law through its rulings, but should confine itself to interpreting the Constitution, Romney told the Portsmouth Herald editorial board Thursday.

“There are two very different approaches to the Supreme Court. There are those who feel the Constitution is a starting point, with justices saying, ‘We should go here with that thinking.’ You see this in the activist courts,” he said. “Others say the Constitution is not a launching point, but a beginning and ending point. I follow the second camp.”

Romney said justices should not make their own determination about what is wrong with a law or with the Constitution. That should be left to lawmakers or to a Constitutional amendment.

Governor Romney was asked why he wanted to be President:

“On a personal basis, I wouldn’t,” he said, adding that at the end of the 2008 Primary election when he lost to Sen. John McCain, “my wife and I decided I would not run again.”

But after seeing what he said is “an exceptional nation headed in a direction that imperils our future,” his wife had a change of heart — “even before I did.”

“She said, ‘Mitt, you have to get in and do it again.’ And because I love this country, and I’m concerned about my kids and my grandkids, I said, OK,” he said.

For a synopsis of Romney’s take on federal debt, capital punishment, Social Security reform, health care, energy policy, social issues, and education, continue reading here.

Romney shares his views with the editorial board on Supreme Court justices:

ABC posted this next video portion of Romney’s interview. He references his book ‘No Apology’, defends his consistency on the issues, e.g., same-sex marriage and global warming. He knows it’s political season and that those playing the ‘gotcha’ game are looking for any little variance in the words he uses to explain policy:

The penchant of some who seek to take Romney’s words out of context, mis-quote him, and mischaracterize him is a great disservice to voters. We’re happy to help keep the record straight on Romney, along with the pro-Romney sites found on the right-hand side of this page.

By the way, have you read Romney’s No Apology?

It’s a treasure-trove of detailed Romney policy.

Every American who wants to restore our nation should dive into it.
