MRC’s Year in Review: A Look Back at the Top 10 Mitt Romney Articles of 2011

Last year, we did our first annual year in review in which we looked at the top 10 Mitt Romney Central articles of 2010.  It was a great way to look at where we started and how far we’ve come.  It was also a way to highlight some of the best work that our excellent MRC staff has written over that year.

We are happy to present our second annual year in review in which we will show you our top 10 Mitt Romney Central articles for 2011.

10.  As the United States Supreme Court prepares itself to hear arguments for ObamaCare,  its worth going back to read my article,  Why RomneyCare is Constitutional While Obamacare is Not. Its a good way to understand the Constitutional differences between ObamaCare and RomneyCare and why Obama’s  health care plan is unacceptable under the Constitution.  If you want a more in depth look at why ObamaCare is unconstitutional, I recommend you read this blog article.

9.  Doug NY GOP wrote a good article about the Top 10 things you may not have known about Mitt Romney. Even strong and long time supporters of Mitt Romney here at MRC were surprised at some of the facts about him.

8.  Bosman’s article, Mitt Romney: A Bigger Man Than I, is a great reminder and tribute to Mitt Romney’s impressive character. It is its worth reading again because the two most important things about a candidate are his values and his character and Romney shines on both accounts. This is the kind of man America needs in the White House.

7.    I wrote an article reporting on a column from the Onion that was too funny not to share with our MRC fans.  If you haven’t read the article before, you should read it because it will definitely make you laugh or at least put a smile on your face.

6.  Jayde Wyatt consistently writes great articles for MRC.  She is also one of the hardest and most dedicated staff members here at MRC.  One of my personal favorites is her coverage of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s endorsement of Mitt Romney.  Getting her endorsement was a big win for Mitt Romney since earlier this year, she declined to give her endorsement until she got to know each of the candidates better.

5.  Rebel Ross‘ article,  The Obama Misery Index and the Rise of Obamavilles, is worth rereading again because the economy has not recovered under the entire term of Obama’s first administration and people are still suffering from his economic policies.  Given that 2012 Republican primaries are less than a few weeks away, this is a good reminder of why we need Mitt Romney as the 2012 Republican nominee so that we can boot Barack Obama out of office.

4.   All of us here at MRC enjoyed Jeff Fuller’s article for the anybody but Mitt crowd in which he points out that they consistently run from supporting one candidate to another in attempt to forestall the inevitable in which conservatives, independents, moderate and some liberal democrats will eventually coalesce around Romney because the American people desperately want to get Obama out of office.  Even though the anybody but Romney crowd knows this, they just can’t bring themselves to get on board yet.

3.  Another MRC article that we all enjoyed was Rebel Ross‘ blistering article against Red State and Free Republic for blatant and false information that they have written about Mitt Romney. They seem to recycle the same old trash originally propagated by supporters of President Obama and, in some cases, even by President Obama himself.

2.  Jayde Wyatt did a excellent job of covering Newt Gingrich’s attack on Mitt Romney’s Bain & Company for destroying jobs only to find out that not only is Bain & Company a great company that helps create additional jobs for other people, its was also named the Best Employer of America.

1.  The best article of 2012 goes to bcollin’s article Fact-Checkers Blast Bret Baier and Democrats – The Charge of Romney’s “Flip-Flopping” is Greatly Exaggerated. Fox News got a lot of press over Bret Baier’s interview with Mitt Romney because Romney got upset with some of Bret Baier’s questions.  Bret Baier attempted to defended himself but the people who fact checked him found out he was using incorrect information when interviewing Mitt Romney.

With all of our new bloggers and recent guest posts, I know and apologize for the inevitability that I’m missing a plethora of great pieces. With our growing team and exploding readership, all of us here at MRC are more energized than ever to make sure next New Year will have all of us looking forward to the inauguration of Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States of America!

MRC’s Year in Review: A Look Back at the Top 10 Mitt Romney Articles of 2010

As Americans pause to review the past year and look ahead to 2011, I’d like to look back on what I feel were the top 10 articles here on MRC for 2010. The following articles demonstrate why this site has become a go-to source for Conservatives, TEA Partiers and Independents:

10. Nate Gunderson wrote a great article reviewing the first year of Mitt Romney Central and how successful our site has become. I think all of the team members here are grateful for the growth of MRC from a small site to becoming the ultimate destination for all Mitt Romney related news and articles.

9. MRC opened our Mitt Romney 2012 store this year which makes us a convenient source to purchase American-made products to proudly show support for Governor Romney!

8. Governor Romney released his highly anticipated new book in the March of this year. Luke Gunderson gave us sneak peak of No Apology: The Case for American Greatness – a tremendous must-have reference for anyone interested in getting America back on track.

7. Lots of work has been done behind the scenes here at MRC — and we have to give credit where credit is due. Our man Dave P. has researched and compiled tons of relevant info on all the major issues of our time. Dave has put in many hours of tedious work to create a library of recourses, where all Mitt Romney fans can go to get actual Mitt Romney quotes, videos, and links regarding his stance on issues such as Abortion, Immigration, and Health Care Reform.

6. A misconception about Mitt Romney s that he is a RINO. Aaron Gunderson wrote an great article addressing that very issue. It deserves to be read by every conservative as they ponder which 2012 candidate to support for the next presidential election. (I also recommend reading his follow up article explaining how a true conservative like Mitt Romney was a Tea Partier long before the Tea Party exploded onto national politics.)

5. We’ve seen many favorable polls here over the past year. Aaron Gundy’s post about the Marist 2012 GOP poll is a good reminder of why Mitt Romney will be a tough challenger for the 2012 as Mitt Romney as he receives support from diverse groups such as the Tea Party, Independents, college graduates, and women.

4. Bosman has written a series of excellent articles on RomneyCare but I like this article the most in which he clearly explains that we already have a health care mandate in the United States. He explains how Romney’s plan is different and emphasizes a crucial question: Should individuals pay for their own health care or pay for other people’s health care?

3. Rebel Ross’ article, So This is How Liberty Dies…With Thunderous Applause, is a powerful post lamenting loss of freedom that came with the passage of ObamaCare and strongly condemns political leaders in Congress who so foolishly patted themselves on the back for passing a law which undermines the freedoms that Americans enjoy. As one of my top three personal favorite posts on MRC, it is worth reading again.

2.  Vox Patriota’s article The Year of Our Obama is one the most compelling and impressive articles I’ve read on any site for why Barack Obama needs to be a one term president. Nate Gunderson listed this article as one of his favorite articles and its certainly another one of my top three favorite articles on MRC. It perfectly captures the collective frustration and anger that many conservatives, Independents, TEA Partiers, libertarians and growing wave of liberals feel towards him. As the 2012 elections comes closer, its worth reading again to remind ourselves why we need a man like Mitt Romney in office.

1. Jayde Wyatt’s post showing Mitt Romney’s Christmas card generated huge buzz on the internet as websites such as POLITICO, National Review, TIME, Hot Air, a prominent Canadian news site, Wonkette and Comedy Central’s Indecision Forever posted links to her article. It generated approximately 15,000 visitors to our site that day. Way to go, Jayde!!

All of us here look forward to 2011 — it will be an exciting year as the 2012 election starts to heat up and we continue to attract more fans of Mitt Romney. Thank you all for a fabulous 2010; here’s to another great year!

As we say goodbye to 2010 and welcome 2011, we wish everyone a happy and safe New Year’s eve and day!
