The Des Moines Register said that Mitt Romney “offers a fresh economic vision.” When they endorsed Mitt Romney, it was the first time in forty years, the paper endorsed a Republican. In fact, Romney earned the support of every major newspaper in Iowa. It’s clear that Mitt Romney is the leader both Iowa and our nation need.

Today, Romney for President released a new video “Change At The Pump,” airing at gas stations across the country including Pennsylvania, Florida, and Iowa. The proof of whether President Obama’s strategy is working is dependent on the price you’re paying at the pump. The President’s own energy secretary even said the country needs to boost gas prices to the levels in Europe. President Obama’s record is one of higher gas prices.

I was just browsing TechCrunch and caught an article that talks about the cleverness of the newest, official Romney Facebook app: Commit to Mitt.
After connecting to your Facebook account, the app automatically finds all of your friends that live in swing states and — whether by private message or by posting on their timeline — makes it easy for you to encourage them to support Mitt Romney.
Honestly, I was surprised to see that I had many friends who currently live in swing states. I used the app to send each of them a personalized note, asking them to Commit to Mitt and to encourage their friends to do the same. Easy stuff.
If you’re not one for making phone calls or knocking doors, this may be the best way that you could have a personal impact on the results of the election (just 13 days from now!). Please take a moment to ask influential friends in your network to vote for Mitt Romney — let’s make sure we use this awesome tool to win it for Mitt! Click here to continue reading →

“I don’t think you can afford another doubling of gasoline prices under Barack Obama. I mean, since he’s been president, the price of gasoline has doubled, and that’s happened in part because the President has not taken advantage of our energy. When I become president, we’re going to double the number of permits on federal lands and federal waters for drilling, make sure that we can get more oil and gas and use our coal and our nuclear, renewables. We’re going to have an energy abundance in America and keep our prices more moderate.” - Mitt Romney
