A grand and important moment took place this morning at about 8:40 A.M. eastern time.

Governor Mitt Romney, Republican presidential nominee, and his wife, Ann, cast their ballots for the United States presidency at the Beech Street Center precinct near their home in bedford, Massachusetts.

I’m pretty sure we know who they voted for!

Here’s a behind-the-scenes report from ABC’s Muir:


The moment! Mitt and Ann vote::

The GOP candidate, accompanied by his wife, Ann, told reporters he feels “very, very good” about his overall chances and “great about Ohio.”

A fairly large crowd greeted the Romneys when they arrived at the polling station, according to reports. …[A] woman held a sign that read: “Mitt and Ann enjoy your new White House.”

Romney shared a kiss with Ann after casting his vote, whose stop at the polling station was just the start of a busy election day for the GOP nominee. He heads next to Cleveland, Ohio, where running mate Paul Ryan is expected to pay a visit as well. Then Romney heads onward to Pittsburgh while Ryan travels to Richmond, before reuniting for the Republican ticket’s election night party in Boston.

Romney son Tagg and little cutie patootie grandson, Joseph, went with The Gov to Cleveland where they will join with Paul Ryan to do a little retail politicking. Romney will then go on to Pittsburgh, PA, and Ryan will go to Richmond, VA. Ann Romney will remain in Boston today where all will reunite to await election results.

Obama is in Chicago today making a few phone calls and playing basketball.

Another memorable moment; Paul and Janna vote!

GOP Vice Presidential candidate Congressman Paul Ryan and wife, Janna, cast their votes today in Janesville, Wisconsin. Their three adorable children, Lisa, Charlie, and Sam, accompanied them.


Senior Romney Campaign Adviser Ed Gillespie appeared early this morning on FOX & Friends. “Mitt Romney will win decisively.

Ed Gillespie: “The fact is, we can’t afford four more years like the last four years. And Governor Romney has been out there putting forward a positive vision and a plan to turn the economy around, to create 12 million jobs, unleash domestic energy, get us to a balanced budget. That’s why he’s got momentum here on election day. And I think that’s why he’s going to win tonight, not just win, but win decisively. I don’t think there’s going to be any doubt at the end of tonight who the next president is going to be.”



VOTE FOR ROMNEY & RYAN!

Barack Obama Let America Down

In 2008, American optimism prevailed and the nation elected Barack Obama its first black president. He was an understandable choice: He was a likeable man with a golden gift for spellbinding speeches that overrode his thin resume. He promised hope and change and created a vision of national unity, an end to venomous partisan politics and a beautiful new post-racial era. He vowed fundamental transformation of America as if that was a good thing. Events of the last four years have burst that pretty bubble.

It turns out, his notion of fundamental transformation was based on a malicious view that America should be cut down to size and put into just another ordinary seat at the table of nations. A view that successful people who worked hard and grew wealthy somehow got it undeservedly at the expense of other people, and so his government should step in and take from the haves and give to those who didn’t work for it. Spread the wealth around, rather than foster the American Dream of a country where anyone is free to use their talents, work hard and make a good living.

In domestic and foreign affairs, over the last four years, Obama has failed as president. He offers only more of the same if given a second term. It is vital to the nation’s well-being that he not be returned to the White House.

Obama’s record as president demonstrates that, despite his charm and glowing words, he can only lead America to mediocrity, a lowered standard of living, and ultimately, the death of the American Dream and the rise of the corrupt welfare state where everyone is equally bad off, except for the political leaders and their pals who live high on the hog.

Today’s $16 trillion national debt is the size of the nation’s total annual economic output. That’s like owing Master Card your whole year’s wages, and still buying more on credit every day. Printing more money out of thin air to keep pace with the spending will eventually make our dollars worth less, if not worthless, and it’s our children and grandchildren who will suffer the consequences with a diminished way of life.

Obamacare has made employers afraid to add workers, and it’s cost estimates keep rising even as it is estimated to fall millions of people short of its goal of health insurance for all. It adds millions of new patients but has many doctors saying they may quit because of the intrusive bureaucracy and payment limits. Having Obamacare is no guarantee you will be seen by your doctor, or any doctor, in a timely manner. Older and sicker Americans will face rationing of care and could be denied treatments now available.

In many ways, Barack Obama has let America down, and it’s time to let him go. On Tuesday, vote for a strong and healthy America. Elect Mitt Romney president.

Come through for us, Ohio. We’re counting on you to give Mitt and Paul a WIN tomorrow!

Amid Autumn’s Heated Campaign, Do Romney/Ryan Families Find Time to Chill?

With the Romney’s attending church today in Belmont, MA and the Governor spending time preparing for Tuesday’s presidential debate, I thought it might be relaxing for Romney/Ryan supporters to look back on the week. Let’s see if the Romney and Ryan families are finding time amid the heated campaign to enjoy October, a bit of Mother Nature’s beauty, and just chill…

Kick off your shoes and take your time.

Here’s an autumn Romney/Ryan photo essay

Ann Romney, bundled up to stay warm, took a detour on the way from Hudsonville, Michigan to the Detroit suburb of Franklin to visit the Peanut Shop in downtown Lansing. She bought some trick-or-treat goodies including cashews and cinnamon almonds she said were Mitt’s favorite. She also picked up some ‘sour jelly pumpkins’ for the grandchildren. Yum!

Historic. I will forever cherish the memory of being present in the arena when Paul Ryan, our VP nominee, gave an electric speech to a very excited and enthusiastic crowd in Tampa. I am extremely doubtful that Romney could have picked a better candidate to be his running mate. My brother, there with me in the arena, summed up his feelings in this very apt tweet:

The entire speech of the GOP’s VP nominee:

By the way, that VP debate is on Thursday, October the 11th. Better start popping that popcorn now.
