Mitt Romney man with a plan

Mitt Romney: the man with the character, skills, experience, endurance, and the team required to be our nominee.

Having organized, managed and executed a dynamically successful Primary Campaign strategy, Governor Romney is well poised for the General Election Cycle.

The Romney Campaign has overcome and endured a nearly insurmountable campaign season. Although not flawless, and in spite of continual MLM protestations, the Romney Campaign has been one of the best run Republican Primary Campaigns in modern history. To paraphrase Stuart Stevens, Senior Advisor to the Campaign, any credit to the eventual success of the campaign goes to the candidate, Governor Romney – they don’t get any better than Mitt Romney…and this from a well respected and seasoned veteran of political campaigns. Further, to each who stands, or has stood, with Mitt Romney, they are to a one unified in their admiration, attribution and respect, that he like none other is the real deal with all of the needed character traits, skillsets and experience to lead our nation at one of its most defining moments.

Consider the points;

1 – In a Primary campaign, Governor Romney has been continuously and singularly challenged by the Obama Media Machine (OMM – Main Stream Media), the Democratic National Committee, the Obama Campaign, and an abundance of candidates and/or promoted possible candidates (Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, Michelle Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul), each of whom have at one point or another led national polls for the Republican nomination. Amidst it all, Mitt Romney has withstood the onslaught, and stands today as a respected and principled leader without equivocation.

2 – Governor Romney and his core team have built and managed a national campaign organization like none other. This is a campaign that can not only compete, but compete with depth in every contest across the nation and territories of the United States. Such is what is needed to endure what is likely to be the most aggressive and expensive general campaign in modern history.

3 – Governor Romney has built one of the broadest based and well-resourced fundraising campaigns in Republican Party history. With contributions in excess of $80 million thus far (limited by a $2,500 maximum), the Romney Campaign has no equal in the Party. Governor Romney has attracted a large base of donors less than $200 per person while also appealing to a large base of maximum donors. This proven ability to raise needed campaign funds for the Primary cycle has positioned the campaign for the demands of fundraising parity with the most prolific of fundraisers, Barack Obama.

4 – The Candidate – as stated by Stuart Stevens, there isn’t any better than Mitt Romney. A man whose life is a reflection of integrity, character, principled leadership and capacity, thus enabling his ability and offered availability to lead, even inspire our Nation in our defining moment! We are suffering from a void of experienced and principled leadership – Mitt Romney fills the void as few can.

Thank you Mitt and Ann Romney!

And so, it begins – the comparative of Romney and Obama. Hugh Hewitt clearly defines the contest here. That said, to make an effective comparative we need to know more of Barack Obama. A dear friend and highly regarded Hollywood Producer, Jerry Molen is introduced by Breitbart in a recent post. Jerry is producing a film titled “2016″ based upon the book by Dinesh D’Souza, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage”, to further inform the American electorate (see below). The film is slated for release in the midst of the Presidential campaign, the summer of 2012. Future posts will be more deliberative in their comparatives of Barack Obama and his failed policies.

Donald Trump to Mitt Romney: You're Hired!

Trump endorses Romney

After Newt’s team confirmed to the press last night that Donald Trump was endorsing the former Speaker, news comes today that they were mistaken – the Donald is endorsing Mitt.

Say what you will about the man, he happens to influence of a good chunk of people – a chunk that we may need to have on board to beat Obama. His endorsement as well as anyone else’s should be welcome – after all, we’re building bridges with all coalitions that will support our man, not fences.

From CBS News:

Donald Trump said Thursday he’s endorsing Mitt Romney because of his position on catching up to China’s economic growth and because he believes Romney can out-debate President Obama.

“You look at what’s going on with China, you look at what’s going on with the other OPEC nations and how they are absolutely destroying this country, and he’s the only one who talks about it,” Trump told a group of reporters at an impromptu news conference in Las Vegas. “So that was very important to me. I thought he did very well in the debates, that was very important… I think if he debates that well, I don’t think Obama will fare well against him.

Romney’s campaign is expected to formally unveil the endorsement at an event at 3:30 Eastern Time.

Update: In case you’re hungry for more, here’s Trump with Cavuto immediately after the presser.


“LEADERSHIP” – Mitt Romney is Far Superior to Newt Gingrich

Governor Romney has been getting a bum rap these past couple of weeks, in my opinion. No whine here. Just fact. I must admit that I don’t understand how any significant numbers of values based conservatives can think Gingrich is superior to Romney in any way, let alone in character. Do we really know that Gingrich won’t eventually migrate to a fourth wife and religion? I realize that most Americans aren’t paying that much attention to politics right now, but those who know anything about Gingrich understand that he is the very epitome of all that is negative in politicians.

My biggest criticism of Obama in the last election was that he had never been a leader; that he had never led anything. Unfortunately for Americans, he is not even learning “on the job” to be a leader now. Gingrich has extensive leadership experience. By many measures, Gingrich is a leader. With this contrast, I do believe he would be superior to Obama as President. But frankly, that is not saying much at all. In my opinion, Gingrich as a leader does not hold a candle to Romney as a leader. Not even close. The very definition of “leader” and “leadership”, especially in relation to the Office of President of the United States of America, carries with it the highest expectations of character in all personal and public attributes, such as absolute integrity. What are all the character traits that come to mind when we remember that President Reagan would never consider walking into the Oval Office without wearing his suit coat out of respect? What do we think of when we think of President Clinton and the Oval Office? The Office of President is a sacred trust. No man or woman is perfect, but the President should be a person of unquestioned integrity and character and above reproach in every sense.

For what it is worth, I believe Obama to be a more principled man than Gingrich, though I could not disagree with his ideology more.

Is there a man more self-absorbed and arrogant than Gingrich? Well, then again there is Trump and Blagojevich — I almost forgot. Gingrich already declared victory in the primary. He so dismissively waves off his 84 congressional ethics sanctions, liberal partnering, lobbying, and extramarital affair with a smile and quick retorts of his being older, wiser, and repentant. And we are to believe that? Oh, and the mistress with whom he had the years long secret affair was the one that taught him repentance and converted him to his current belief structure. And this secret affair he was nurturing all the while Gingrich was publicly hammering Clinton for his extramarital relationships! Oh, but all of us voters are now to actually believe Gingrich is a new man? The Gingrich hubris will continue.

I could list dozens of character traits that Romney has had his entire life; they run deep. The strongest character trait, and most important of all to me, is Romney’s integrity. His person, reputation, past, character, and integrity are above reproach. It would be a very sad day in America if Republicans were to choose a man like Gingrich over a man like Romney. Frankly, it is offensive to me that many people consider Gingrich to be a man of high character. His past behavior, actions, and life define the man’s character.

Mitt Romney will accept the mantle of President as a sacred trust. This nation needs Mitt Romney to lead it and the world like no other time in its history. By the way, if you want to get a glimpse of the kind of President Romney will be, read his book, Turnaround: Crisis, Leadership, and the Olympic Games — Gingrich could not have done what Romney did with the failing Olympics; not even close.

Despite Attempts to Get Mitt to Attack Fellow Republicans Romney Focuses on Obama

Debate moderators and members of the media are trying to get Tim Pawlenty and Mitt Romney to go after each other. However, Romney remains focused on Obama. Let’s help Mitt get signatures for his new ‘Unemployed Americans are not just bumps in the road’ petition.

Romney Dominating in New Hampshire: Poll Also Provides Evidence That RomneyCare Won’t Hurt Mitt Much

Suffolk University/WHDH New Hampshire 2012 GOP Nomination Survey 

(400 likely GOP primary voters were polled April 30 – May 2, 2011. The margin of error is +/- 4.9 percentage points.  Full poll results)

  • Mitt Romney 35%
  • Rudy Giuliani 8%
  • Ron Paul 8%
  • Donald Trump 8%
  • Sarah Palin 7%
  • Mike Huckabee 6%
  • Tim Pawlenty 5%
  • Michele Bachmann & Newt Gingrich 3% each
  • Rick Santorum & Herman Cain 2% each
  • John Bolton, Mitch Daniels, & Gary Johnson 1% each
  • Jon Huntsman, Fred Karger, Roy Moore, & Buddy Roemer 0% each
  • Undecided 13%

A quick tally shows that more people voted for Romney than Palin, Huckabee, Pawlenty, Bachman, Santorum, Gingrich, Cain, Daniels, Bolton, Johnson, Huntsman, Roemer, Moore and Karger COMBINED!  That’s called poll domination!!!

Favorable / Unfavorable {Net}

  • Mitt Romney 65% / 22% {+43%}
  • Tim Pawlenty 30% / 13% {+17%}
  • Mike Huckabee 41% / 31% {+10%}
  • Newt Gingrich 38% / 38% {0%}
  • Sarah Palin 42% / 46% {-4%}
  • Barack Obama 36% / 59% {-23%}
  • Donald Trump 27% / 56% {-29%}
If your first choice for the Republican Presidential nominee dropped out of the race, who would you vote for instead?
  • Mitt Romney 17%
  • Mike Huckabee 10%
  • Rudy Giuliani 9%
  • Newt Gingrich 8%

Another quick tally shows that a MAJORITY (52%) of these NH voters have Mitt as either their #1 or #2.  With the field certain to winnow (Trump, Rudy, Palin for sure not running, and unlikely runs for Newt, Huck, and Bachman) Romney is poised to have an even larger lead than this poll reflects

Despite who you’re personally voting for, who do you expect the next president will be – Barack Obama or one of the Republican candidates?
