An Open Invitation to Supporters of Senator Santorum, Speaker Gingrich, and Congressman Paul — Please Unite With Us; We Need You!

Many of our current visitors are new to MittRomneyCentral (MRC); some come here to learn a little about Governor Romney; others are searching for truth related to comments they read or heard in the press or media – many currently support former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, or Congressman Paul.

Senator Rick Santorum w/ Bella

We are a small, grassroots group of writers — the website has a large following with no affiliation at all to the Romney campaign. We are completely independent, allowing us to “speak our minds” so to speak.

We feel a kinship to the ardent supporters of Senator Santorum, Speaker Gingrich, and Congressman Paul and wish to invite you to join us in our efforts to defeat President Barack Obama in November. We are well aware of the differences we have and we are sensitive to the fact that those differences are important to you. We understand too that the policy positions of any one presidential candidate will not align perfectly with another. That said, we know that Governor Romney has far more in common with your candidate than you may yet understand.

As grassroots volunteers at MRC, we take nothing for granted. We have never stated that we think Gov. Romney’s competing for the nomination makes him the inevitable winner or that he is the presumptive nominee; not at all. To adopt any other attitude is unbecoming any campaign – we hope to reflect the modest attitude of our candidate and unitedly work to the main goal – that of defeating Obama in November.

Congressman Ron Paul

Until he is the actual Republican nominee, we will work tirelessly to contribute any way we can, using truth as our only tool; even when he has 1,130 committed delegates. We would like your help to build a larger volunteer base to defeat Obama. We are not asking you to leave your candidate as much as we are asking you to join our team – a winning team we believe.

Gov. Romney has assembled a formidable, powerful grassroots team that is augmented by professionals, led by Gov. Romney himself. We believe it is a winning combination – a winning team. We would be most appreciative and grateful for your support at this important time in America’s history. We fully understand the passion you have for your candidate; we do. As stated above, we feel a certain kinship to your candidate. All three men have accomplished a great deal for this great nation and we are most grateful for their service.

You may decide now is not the time to join us and we understand that too. We just want you to know that we would like you to join us sooner rather than later. We need your intensity and support to press our case against a terribly failed President. We do not consider this a partisan battle as much as a battle for the very heart of the United States of America. We need your help. We are committed to maintain this Internet destination as the finest of any that is dedicated to electing the next President of the United States.

If you would like to consider joining a winning team, we would invite you to subscribe to MRC. It literally takes 10 seconds, is free, and will only result in a periodic email to inform you of new articles. If so, simply go to the home page, find the photo of the T-shirts in the top right hand corner and below it you will see a small box with the words, “Want MRC Delivered to Your Inbox?” Simply drop in your email address and you are done. No spam will arrive; ever.

Speaker Newt Gingrich

If not, we invite you to check in periodically for updates to the race. We will continue the battle and battle hard. But always in truth – seeking continuously to maintain the highest levels of journalistic excellence as community, amateur writers.

Obviously, with this invitation to you, we think the time to unite in our efforts to defeat Obama is right now — today. Please join us as we set a winning course to the White House. You are always welcome in our camp!

Mitt Romney Writes an Op-Ed for the Detroit News

Taxpayers Should Get GM Shares’ Proceeds

By Mitt Romney
February 7th, 2012

I am a son of Detroit. I was born in Harper Hospital and lived in the city until my family moved to Oakland County.

I grew up drinking Vernors and watching ballgames at Michigan & Trumbull. Cars got in my bones early. And not just any cars, American cars.

When the president of American Motors died suddenly in 1954, my dad, George Romney, was asked to take his place. I was 7 and got my love of cars and chrome and fins and roaring motors from him. I grew up around the industry and watched it flourish. Years later, I watched with sadness as it floundered.

Three years ago, in the midst of an economic crisis, a newly elected President Barack Obama stepped in with a bailout for the auto industry. The indisputable good news is that Chrysler and General Motors are still in business. The equally indisputable bad news is that all the defects in President Obama’s management of the American economy are evident in what he did.

Instead of doing the right thing and standing up to union bosses,Obama rewarded them…

Read the rest of the important op-ed here and leave a comment there for Michiganders to read. No doubt the democrats will try to characterize Mitt as someone who hates the auto industry, so it’s up to us to make sure Michiganders are provided the truth.

UPDATE: Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign is making TV reservations in Michigan, starting with the Detroit market. Romney’s super PAC, Restore Our Future, has already purchased a half-million dollars in airtime over the next week, but Romney’s campaign was quiet until this morning. The full size of the flight is yet to be determined.

Here’s Mitt’s ad:
