Romney VIDEO: Obama Promised to End Govt Programs That No Longer Work

ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT has released an excellent new video about one of Obama’s broken promises.

BROKEN PROMISES: SPENDING

But I will also go through the federal budget line by line, eliminating programs that no longer work and making the ones we do need work better and cost less, because we cannot meet 21st century challenges with a 20th century bureaucracy.” – Barack Obama, August 28, 2008

Mitt Romney: Stand With Me, Hawaii’s Special Election

I like Mitt Romney’s tech savviness.

I like the 140-characters-or-less tweets he regularly sends to share his schedule, news, or thoughts.

I like his staccato tap-on-the-shoulder electronic notes that dart into our days to let us know when he needs a little help – a sort of cyber-space Romney reveille.  So, it was with curiosity that I read a tweet from him yesterday evening: “Stand with Me: We Must Redouble Our Efforts http://bit.ly/dnw5Za

Romney’s message:

Stand with Me: We Must Redouble Our Efforts

Tuesday’s elections are over but the hard work continues.

The November midterm elections will be here before we know it, and we need to do everything we can to ensure that we have the resources to win. With your generous support of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, or even the maximum $5,000 today, we can continue to fight to cut out wasteful spending, keep taxes low and defeat liberal attempts to grow the size of government.

But we don’t even need to wait until November to send another Republican to Congress. In just a few days, there is a special election being held in Hawaii’s First Congressional District, and Republican Charles Djou has a strong chance of winning — in a district that voted overwhelmingly for President Obama in 2008.

My PAC has been working extremely hard on behalf of Charles Djou, and your generosity has enabled us not only to send him direct monetary support, but also to raise funds directly for his campaign to ensure he has the resources he needs to win. A victory in Hawaii will set the stage for more conservative victories in November’s all-important midterm elections.

We have an historic opportunity this year to send a message of fiscal restraint and conservatism to all the big spenders in Washington. Will you stand with me by making a generous contribution to my PAC of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, or even the maximum $5,000 today? Your support will ensure that we have the resources we need to elect more conservative candidates throughout the country this November.

(emphasis mine)

We’ve received a ‘redouble our efforts’ reveille call to action. Stand with Governor Romney. Give generously! Info on where to send contributions here.

Just two days until the special mail-in election (May 22) in Honolulu, HI. Former congressman Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) leaves an open seat because he resigned to run for governor. Romney-endorsed Republican Charles Djou is running against two Democrats: state senate President Colleen Hanabusa and former 2nd District Congressman Ed Case. If Djou wins, he will become only the second Republican to represent Hawaii in the House. Read more about Charles Djou’s impressive background here.

Djou on Hannity April 21, 2010:


Djou: “My candidacy is built on a very simple premise. I understand every single dollar that the government spends comes from a family like yours.” 

You may have heard that this congressional seat is in Obama’s hometown district. Go Djou!

UPDATE 5/21/10: Campaigners for Djou have been rising early in the mornings to wave campaign signs on major highways in Honolulu. Many thanks to the Sunrise Crew, the Pau Hana Crew and the Mililani Crew. Here is video of the Mililani Crew waving signs in rainy Mililani May 21, 2010 (Charles Djou is the man in front, with black umbrella):


Pomaika’I tomorrow! (good luck)
