NEVADA: Taking Action to Get Out The Vote — Duty Calls

By Rachel Anderson

I had the opportunity to depart to Las Vegas, Nevada for three days last weekend to be a part of something monumental for America. As the 2012 Presidential election is at its peak, with only 11 days to go and a close race behind us, nothing but determination has motivated hundreds of volunteers from all over Utah and California, including myself, to get Mitt Romney elected in the White House.

With Nevada being one of the twelve swing states for November’s election, I couldn’t help but sign my name up to make sure Romney got the good ole Sin City’s votes.

As I stood in line with 100 other students and retired adults getting ready to board the bus, the Romney Campaign volunteers handed each one of us “Romney/Ryan 2012: Believe in America” stickers. At that moment, all I could think to myself with a smirk on my face was “Move it or lose it Obama, my man Mitt’s taking over the White House!”

With previous experience volunteering for Prop 8 my senior year of high school in 2008, I kind of had an idea of what this experience was going to be like; knocking on doors, making phone calls, being an awesome representative for what is right…you know, the usual civic duties. Although I’m not the happiest or nicest person when it comes to walking around for hours in dry desert heat, I sucked it up and told myself this was for America.

Friday night we arrived at the Marriot hotel in Las Vegas around midnight. Our trip leader started passing around envelopes with our names on them that included a deployment schedule, 30 bucks cash for food and hotel room key. I thought to myself… “Mitt really knows how to take care of his people and keep his supporters happy, even in Vegas!”

8:00 Saturday morning, we found ourselves waiting for the bus to take us to Brady Industries where everyone would meet for instruction. After listening to a welcome speech from Jim Davies, Ann Romney’s brother, they immediately put us in vans and sent us to a Republican rally put on by the Mitt Romney Campaign. After a couple hours of food, comedians, speakers and radical rallying, we were then sent out to different parts of the town with bags full of, Romney/Ryan fliers, early voting location fliers, Dean Heller fliers, pens, and precinct bubble-in forms with registered voters names. We then started our quest to receive either support or straight rejection for the Republican Party.

The next two days involved constant walking and making phone calls; talking to many proud supporters of Romney, encouraging them to vote early in hopes to receive support for the Republican ballot, in which most already had. Aside from the excitement we received from Romney supporters, we also ran across many pro-Obama supporters. Some closed the door on us, some yelled at us and some even called the cops on us. It made me wonder why all these people were so angry towards everything that comes near them.

As the hours cruised on by and the day got hotter by the minute, I ran into a lady, in her 70’s who really stood out to me. As we were walking through her neighborhood, she asked what we were doing. I told her we were part of the Republican Party reminding voters to vote in hopes to receive support for Romney and Ryan. With a bitter sound to her voice, waiting for her to yell or kick me off her property, she said this:

I’m a Democrat. Born and raised a Democrat. But I’m voting for Romney. We need to save this country.”

Just from those simple words, it was a humbling experience for me. Knowing and seeing that people with different views and beliefs than the rest of us can see the danger and despair our country is in. It doesn’t matter who you are – your race, religion or what you believe – we are Americans; this is America and we need to work together to fight for our country. We don’t want any of this Obama ‘change’ talk that is dividing our country while we watch it crumble from the laziness of our current president. In fact, why would we ever want a president that can’t even man up and take responsibility for his own actions?

Let’s vote for a man that can rebuild a foundation for our country and bring hard work, education and belief in God back in this country; a man that we can not only trust, but that can be a strong leader and representative of our nation. Romney is the man to help mend our nation and bring us back together as a country and to save the citizens of America. He is a true American and stands up for what is best in this nation. This short three-day weekend in Vegas helped me to realize the importance of the 2012 election and the impact it will have on all of American society. With a few parting words – make your vote count and let’s kick Obama out of the White House!

For President

After nearly four years of economic stagnation, massive unemployment, record-setting debt and government intrusions into the economy that have paralyzed the private sector, the United States needs a new direction. For this reason, The Dispatch urges voters to choose Republican Mitt Romney for president in the Nov. 6 election.

Four years after promising hope and change, and after a deficit-driving $787 billion stimulus program, here is the result:

• 12.1 million unemployed, with an unemployment rate above 8 percent for 43 of the past 44 months.

• 8.6 million working part time because they can’t find full-time work

• 2.5 million who wanted to work, but have stopped looking for jobs.

• In 2009, real median household income was $52,195. By 2011, it had fallen to $50,054

• In 2009, the U.S. poverty rate was 14.3 percent. By 2011, the poverty rate climbed to 15 percent.

• On Obama’s watch, 12 million more Americans joined the food-stamp program, which has reached a record of more than 46 million enrollees.

• Annual federal budget deficits above $1 trillion for the past four years, increasing the national debt to an all-time high of $16 trillion.

Obama has failed. That is why Mitt Romney is the preferred choice for president. Romney’s adult life has been spent turning around troubled private and public institutions. These turnarounds include scores of companies acquired and restructured by Bain Capital, the investment firm he founded in 1984. Not all were successes, but that is because to a significant degree, many of the companies Bain took on were high-risk. In 1999, he was asked to take over the scandal-plagued and fiscally mismanaged 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. He quickly streamlined its management, fixed its finances and guaranteed its security, turning it into a success. As governor of Massachusetts, he made tough decisions to lead the state out of a budget deficit, and he did so in a state dominated by Democrats.

As a career businessman and former governor, Romney brings a wealth of executive experience in the private sector and the public sector that dwarfs that of Obama. From working both sides of the government/private-sector equation, he understands how that relationship can aid or impede prosperity. His election would be an immediate signal to the private sector that someone who knows what he is doing is managing the nation’s economic policy. The effect on business confidence would be dramatic and immediate, and business confidence is the vital ingredient needed to spur investment and hiring, the two things that the United States so desperately needs.

In 2008, Americans made a leap of faith when they elevated the inexperienced Obama to the White House. That faith was not rewarded. This time, voters should place their hopes for change in experience, by electing Romney.

Our Pick For President: Romney

Two days after his lackluster first debate performance, President Barack Obama’s re-election hopes got a timely boost. The government’s monthly jobless report for September showed the nation’s unemployment rate fell below 8 percent for the first time since he took office.

If that were the only metric that mattered, the president might credibly argue that the U.S. economy was finally on the right track. Unfortunately for him, and for the American people, he can’t.

We have little confidence that Obama would be more successful managing the economy and the budget in the next four years. For that reason, though we endorsed him in 2008, we are recommending Romney in this race.

Now the president and his supporters are attacking Romney because his long-term budget blueprint calls for money-saving reforms to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, three of the biggest drivers of deficit spending. Obama would be more credible in critiquing the proposal if he had a serious alternative for bringing entitlement spending under control. He doesn’t.

[T]he core of Romney’s campaign platform, his five-point plan, at least shows he understands that reviving the economy and repairing the government’s balance sheet are imperative — now, not four years in the future.

Romney has a strong record of leadership to run on. He built a successful business. He rescued the 2002 Winter Olympics from scandal and mismanagement. As governor of Massachusetts, he worked with a Democrat-dominated legislature to close a $3billion budget deficit without borrowing or raising taxes….

But after reflecting on his [Obama's] four years in the White House, we also don’t think that he’s the best qualified candidate in this race.

We endorse Mitt Romney for president.

Romney Tax Cheat? Harry Reid’s Aide Speaks Specifics, Then EATS WORDS

“Harry, Sasquatch on line three…”
By Glenn McCoy – August 8, 2012


The latest on Harry Rumormonger Reid…

After tripling and quartering down on the BIG LIE (senate floor campaigning cowardice) that Mitt Romney is a tax cheat, Recede Reid hasn’t been heard from. But, aah… Yesterday, he sent one of his aides out to furiously fan the flames of fiction. It didn’t go so well:

After days of silence on Harry Reid’s disputed claim that Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes for a decade, a top aide finally spilled details on the supposed source of the allegation — only to issue a wholesale retraction of those details by Thursday evening.

Reid aide Jose Parra first made the claims in an interview on Los Angeles’ KTLK radio, defending his boss’ decision to trumpet the tax charge last week on the Senate floor and explaining a bit about the source.

“This person is an investor in Bain Capital, a Republican also, and somebody … who has been dealing with Romney’s company for a long, long time and he has direct knowledge on this,” Parra said.

Parra’s statement comes after Romney challenged fib-squibber Harry to “put up or shut up.”

Stoolpigeon Parra backpedals…

However, after some media attention on Parra’s radio interview, Parra issued a statement taking those remarks back.

I do not know the party affiliation of the source, how long he invested with Bain, or his relationship to Romney …” he said.

Runaway Reid… No surprise here (because he’s on vacation, far away from the protection of the Senate floor!):

Asked Friday about the mix-up, a Reid aide told FoxNews.com the senator “does not have any plans to reveal further information about the identity of his source.”

What a cacophony of calumny and cowardice coming from Obama’s defenders!

Chicken-hearted Harry is holed up somewhere among the cacti in Nevada hoping he won’t choke on the crow he’ll soon be eating.

Hey, Harry. YOU haven’t released your tax information, the unemployment rate in Nevada is still at 11.6% , and Las Vegans are suffering under a 12.6% jobless rate. No matter how much you try to distract, unemployment across America is at 8.3%. And, what about your complete and utter failure to pass a Senate budget in almost 1200 days? What are you hiding? If you’re such a smart guy, why don’t you figure out how to put a budget together?

Senator Secret, if you’re such a lover of the TRUTH, listen to this: Your job performance stinks and you are sorely lacking in ethics. A private-sector employer would have fired you long ago.

Senate Leader Harry Reid makes time to play pat-a-cake with Michelle Obama but hasn’t been able to squeeze in the time, for nearly four years, to pass a budget. (Photo taken June 1, 2010, Nevada desert)

Romney Heads to England, Israel, Poland: Meeting Cameron, Kenny, Netanyahu, Walesa & More

Governor Mitt Romney is going overseas…

On Tuesday, after delivering a speech in Reno, Nevada to the Veterans of Foreign Wars at their annual conference, Romney will embark on a six-day, full schedule, listening tour to England, Israel, and Poland:

The presumptive Republican nominee and former Massachusetts governor will meet with the leaders of all three countries, other government officials, opposition leaders, and at least one U.S. ambassador. He plans to attend the opening ceremony of the Olympics, visit sites of historical significance, and hold public events in at least two of the countries.

Aides say Romney does not view the trip as an opportunity to roll out any new policy proposals. “This trip is an opportunity for the governor to listen and learn, to visit countries that share common values, common interests, and I should say in many cases shared heritage with people here in the United States,” Romney’s policy director, Lanhee Chen, told reporters in a conference call previewing the trip.

… While Romney is likely to highlight differences in his approach to international relations relative to Obama, he is expected to refrain from attacking Obama while traveling abroad.

A preview of The Gov’s itinerary…

England

The Olympic rings are lit up on Tower Bridge in preparation for the start of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, England. The Opening Ceremony takes place Friday, July 27, 2012.

Thursday, July 26, 2012:

Governor Romney will meet with British leaders including, Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband, Foreign Secretary William Hague, and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne.

Friday, July 27, 2012:

Romney will meet with Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

Later, he’ll meet with U.S. Olympic athletes and attend the 2012 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremonies. USA! USA! USA! (We know the strong passion The Gov has for the Olympics – the spirit of competition – and for the capacity of the games to inspire unity, mutual understanding, and respect across the world. Romney is known for his turnaround of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah.) Also, if schedules can be coordinated, he may try to meet with other world leaders who are in London for the Olympics.

Israel

The gleam from the Dome of the Rock reflects the afternoon sun in Jerusalem, Israel. Among the Israeli leaders meeting with Mitt Romney will be Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Sunday, July 29, 2012:

Romney has been to Israel three times in the past, on a family visit in the late 1990s and, in 2007 and 2011, on fact-finding trips focused on security and economic issues.

On this trip, he’ll meet first with Daniel Shapiro, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, who will give him a briefing. Romney will also meet with Israeli officials including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres, and will also sit down with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. He has met them all on previous trips.

While aides say Romney will not specifically criticize the president’s Middle East policy while he is in Israel, he will continue to make the case for standing with Israel – as he often does on the campaign trail. “America needs to stand by its allies, particularly allies that are under siege like Israel, particularly democratic allies who have such a shared history and shared values with America” Dan Senor, a special adviser on foreign policy, told reporters in previewing Romney’s message.

In an op-ed written yesterday, former U.S. Senator Norm Coleman (GOP) shares the following:

By sheer coincidence, Romney is an old and personal friend of Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Romney’s first job after finishing up at Harvard was at the Boston Consulting Group, and Netanyahu was working there at the time and sat in an office down the hall. The two struck up a friendship and have remained close. If Romney were to become president, it would be an extraordinary chapter in U.S.-Israeli relations.

“There is little precedent,” The New York Times wrote recently, “for two politicians of their stature to have such a history together that predates their entry into government.”

Certainly Israel could use a close friend in the White House these days.

Over the last three years, however, the U.S.-Israeli relationship has been troubled.

President Obama does not seem to have personal affection for the Jewish state. He has publicly castigated Israel, including at the United Nations. He was caught on a hot microphone denigrating Israel’s prime minister, and when Netanyahu came to Washington he received him with marked coolness, neglecting to hold the customary joint news conference before asking the Israeli leader to exit through a rear door.

Romney will also deliver remarks while in Israel.

Poland

The skyline over Gdansk, Poland turns a rosy hue at dusk. Governor Romney will meet with Poland’s former President Lech Walesa in the port city.

Monday, July 30, 2012:

Romney’s final destination is Poland, where he will meet with the current leadership, including President Bronislaw Komorowski, Prime Minister Donald Tusk, and Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski. Romney will also meet with Lech Walesa, the former Polish president and winner of the 1983 Nobel Peace Prize. Walesa, who was president from 1990 to 1995 and oversaw Poland’s transition out of communism, was the one who invited Romney to visit his country.

Ian Brzezinski, another Romney adviser, said the visit to Poland will highlight an important alliance that is “rich in history” — from Polish support for the American revolution all the way through Iraq and Afghanistan, where the country has sent troops to assist in the U.S.-led war efforts. Romney will also point to country’s economic success, which he will say stems from free market principles and capitalism – the themes he pushes on the campaign trail at home.

“This is a country that stands in sharp contrast economically to the rest of Europe where economies are dropping by about 5% or more,” Brzezinski told reporters.

Romney will also deliver remarks and visit historical sights in Poland. The ‘Lech Walesa Institute’ said in a statement that Governor Romney is visiting Poland by special invitation, issued to him at the beginning of the month, by President Walesa:

Poland and Poles are paying close attention to the election campaign in the United States, focused on choosing a leader for the American nation for the next four years,” Walesa wrote in the invitation dated July 4.

Their choice will influence the fate of America and the world.

Walesa refused to meet with Obama last year, saying “It doesn’t suit me.”

Romney’s invitation from freedom-fighter Walesa is, indeed, a high honor.

This will be a memorable week for Mitt and Ann as they find themselves in the international spotlight. It’s another opportunity for world leaders and the good people in England, Israel, and Poland to see that the USA has an opportunity, through Mitt Romney, to elect a strong, seasoned statesman who will once again respect our allies, strengthen our partnerships, and instill renewed confidence in the mighty cause of freedom.

To Mitt and Ann, Godspeed!

Hear the Drum Roll? Romney Expected to Secure GOP Nomination Today

Do you hear the drum roll coming from Texas?

We do!

Today is the happy day Governor Mitt Romney is expected to officially secure the Republican nomination.

Voters in the magnificent Lone Star State go to primary polls today to allocate their 152 delegates. Romney needs just 58 more to reach the magic number of 1,144.

SALON reports:

#Rominee!

The former Massachusetts governor has reached the nomination milestone with a steady message of concern about the U.S. economy, a campaign organization that dwarfed those of his GOP foes and a fundraising operation second only to that of his Democratic opponent in the general election, President Barack Obama.

“That goal is accomplished, but there’s a much bigger goal to be accomplished and that’s winning the presidency,” said Rich Beeson, Romney’s political director. “So while you can take a certain amount of satisfaction and pride for (Romney) and what he’s accomplished, he’s very resolved to say, ‘Our work isn’t done.’”
. . .
Republicans won’t officially nominate Romney until late August at the GOP national convention in Tampa, Fla. He enters the Texas primary with 1,086 convention delegates — 58 shy of the 1,144 needed to win the nomination.

Texas has 152 delegates at stake and they are awarded in proportion to the statewide vote. That means Romney has to get at least 38 percent of the vote there to go over the top. In recent primaries in Kentucky, Arkansas, Nebraska and Oregon, he has done no worse than 67 percent.

Where is The Gov today? He’s in Colorado and Nevada:

Romney opened his day in Colorado’s coal country, where he spoke directly to small town America: “I’m not going to forget Craig, Colorado. I’m not going to forget communities like this across the country that are hurting right now under this president,” he said. Local officials report that the area’s economy is improving, but Romney said the recovery is too slow.

The Colorado event was the first stop in a Tuesday swing that ends at a Las Vegas fundraiser with Donald Trump . . .

★ In honor of today, we’re asking twitter users to promote like crazy a new hashtag today: #Rominee

★ As we await this exciting milestone for Governor Romney, supporters are invited to join us on our chat forum this afternoon and evening as election results come in. Also adding to the spirit of the day, check out the facebook Nomination Primary Watch Party here.

WOO HOO!

Mythbusters – “The Conservative Base Doesn’t Like Mitt Romney?” Analyzing the Exit Polls

We’ve all heard the line “the conservative base doesn’t like Mitt Romney” or some version of that idea. It’s a line that has been thrown around carelessly in the media for several months now, and we all know that once the media adopts a theme or “narrative” about a candidate, it becomes incredibly difficult to break that narrative even when evidense abounds to the contrary.

Well, now that there has been some actual voting, lets look at the FACTS to see if that claim holds water. What I am going to argue is that, if we analyze the exit polls from the competitive primaries and caucuses held so far, Romney has captured the conservative base by a large margin over his competitors. So according to actual voters, and not just the pundits and talking heads in the media, Romney is doing just fine with the “conservative base.” 

Of the eight states that have held competitive primaries or caucuses, Romney has won four and tied one. Romney won New Hampshire, Florida, Nevada and Maine and then essentially tied Iowa. Exit polls from the states that Romney has won show that Romney captured the “conservative base” by a large margin. Lets look at some examples:

New Hampshire – Chris Cillizza gave a summary of the exit polls which showed: 

Mitt picked up 49% of GOP voters.

Romney’s 49 percent is the highest mark among self-identified Republicans for any presidential candidate since New Hampshire moved its primary forward in the calendar.

Contrast that with John McCain, with whom he’s often compared as a squishy moderate with problems with Republicans.

McCain is the only candidate since 1980 to win New Hampshire even as he lost among self-identified Republicans.

That means McCain was essentially the worst winner with Republicans in New Hampshire over the past 30 years, while Romney was the best.

Florida – Exit polls in Florida show that Romney received the vast majority of Republican support between the candidates with 48%. Among those who self-identify as “conservative,” Romney garnered 41%, more than any other candidate. Among those who consider themselves “very conservative,” Romney split the vote with Gingrich (Romney got 30% and Gingrich got 41%).

Nevada: Exit polls in this state reveal Romney truly stomped the other competitors in regard to which candidate the self-identified “very conservative and “conservative” voters supported.

Romney garnered a vast majority of the Republican vote at 56%. Romney won every category of Republican voters including the Very Conservative by wide margins. The category of very conservative is particularly interesting, Romney got 46%, Gingrich got only 25% and Santorum only 15%.

Maine: No exit/entrance polls were taken. Results of the caucus show:

Mitt Romney has 39.2 percent of the vote with 2190 votes, Ron Paul has 35.7 percent with 1996 votes, Rick Santorum has 17.7percent with 989 votes, and Newt Gingrich has 6.25 percent with 349 votes.

So the pundits and talking heads say that the conservative base doesn’t like Mitt Romney, but exit polls of ACTUAL VOTERS in New Hampshire, Florida, Nevada and Maine show otherwise. 

A critic might say, “O.K., Romney did well among conservatives in the states he won, but what about the states that Romney didn’t win?”

While it is true that Romney didn’t do as well among conservatives in the states he lost (South Carolina, Colorado, and Minnesota), we have to also acknowledge that Santorum and Gingrich didn’t do well among “the base” in the states that Romney won. So if we are going to claim that “the base doesn’t like Romney” because he lost some states, by the same logic, we would have to conclude that the base doesn’t like Santorum because of how voters of the base rejected Santorum in Florida, South Carolina, Nevada and Maine. We would likewise have to conclude that the base doesn’t like Newt Gingrich because of how he performed in Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida, Nevada, Minnesota, Colorado and Maine. The same standard needs to be applied to all the candidates.

National Polls – I just want to make a quick comment about national polls. For those of us who have been watching the presidential race closely, we remember a couple of months ago how the pundits frequently used national polls to illustrate that “the base didn’t like Romney.” The pundits would say something along the lines of “Romney just can’t break out of that mid-twenties approval rating in national polls, that shows that the base just doesn’t really like Mitt Romney.” However, in the last month, Romney has shattered that myth by shooting into the mid to low thirties since Iowa and New Hampshire. In fact, after Romney’s win in Florida, he polled higher in the national polls than any other candidate has polled since the race began a year ago. That is why I was amused yesterday to hear Sarah Palin say “I like Mitt Romney . . . but he has to do more work to convince conservatives. His support can’t break out of that mid-thirties level.” 

A Few Notes From Nevada

I got the chance to go to the Nevada caucuses over the weekend. It was a fun time again. Here’s a quick travel log to give you a sense of what it was like.

Headquarters

We started after making the trip from San Diego in record time, and went immediately to the headquarters.

Nevada Lt Gov Brian Krolicki Files Ballot Paperwork for Romney

October 17, 2011 - Standing in the bed of a pickup truck, NV Lt Gov Brian Krolicki, former MN Gov Tim Pawlenty (Natl Co-Chair for Romney), and former MA Gov Mitt Romney shared a light moment when Romney opened his campaign headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada. Yesterday (11/17/11), Krolicki delivered Romney's presidential ballot paperwork to the NV Republican Party.


Mitt is officially good to go in the Silver State…

Boston, MA – Romney for President [has] filed the required paperwork necessary for Mitt Romney to participate in the Nevada Republican Caucus. Lieutenant Governor Brian Krolicki, Mitt Romney’s Nevada State Co-Chair, delivered the paperwork to the Nevada Republican Party.

Krolicki’s statement:

This next election is one of the most important in generations, and for Nevada the ramifications are profound and clear – our wounded state cannot continue to endure the current administration’s recklessly chosen path that has led to higher unemployment and falling incomes. Today’s filing is one small, but highly important, step as Mitt Romney’s team in Nevada works to help him bring positive change to our state and to the rest of the country. Only someone with Governor Romney’s deep understanding of the economy and job creation can reverse the failed policies of the last three years and begin to rejuvenate our country.”

(emphasis added )

Lt. Gov Krolicki, thanks for doing the honors!
