Your One Vote Can be Leveraged Big for Mitt Romney!

PLEASE PROMOTE, DISTRIBUTE, TWEET, & EMAIL THIS TO THE BATTLEGROUND STATES

Since the 1770s, Americans have given the ultimate sacrifice so that you and I will have the freedom to vote. Having the liberty to vote is a sacred privilege — one that none of us should ever take for granted. This knowledge has caused me to never miss voting in any American election.

Have you voted yet? If not, please vote this Tuesday. Please, don’t follow any of the polls, up or down, or listen to the mainstream media spin intended to discourage your voting. Don’t let any noise distract or dissuade you. Your one vote matters. Your one vote is extremely valuable to Governor Romney. You can and will make a difference with your vote. And that difference you make could be big.

  • Do you know a young man or young woman for whom this is their first presidential voting privilege? Please ask them to accompany you to the voting booth Tuesday to cast their ballots for Romney/Ryan.
  • Do you know any shut-ins that have voted their entire lives but for whatever reason have been unable to get around much, who may have determined this year that getting to the voting booth is “just too much hassle?” Please graciously ask that person to go with you Tuesday and tell them how grateful you are and Governor Romney is for their effort to make a big difference.
  • Do you have a brother, sister, cousin, uncle, friend, neighbor, or associate that is registered to vote but thinks their one vote makes no difference? Please speak with that person (or two) and ask them to go with you to the voting booth and maybe buy them lunch. They will never miss another election.
  • Do you know anybody in a nursing home that has considered voting to be a sacred privilege their entire life but who is no longer ambulatory? Why not visit that person today or tomorrow and invite them to accompany you to the voting booth after you take them out for a meal or a movie? Do you have any idea how much you will make their day, week, or year? They are from The Greatest Generation and love America beyond understanding.

We are at a crossroads in our nation, right now. This is not hyperbole. This is real. We cannot afford to let up or allow ourselves to be complacent in the least. We can begin to rest on Wednesday. Please do everything you can to find every registered voter you know that supports the Romney/Ryan vision and help motivate them to pull the lever.


Right now, at this very moment, we need to kick into after-burner mode!


Yesterday, Governor Romney said this in his speech in Wisconsin:

“I will bring real change. I know the economy and American job market will still be stagnant, but I won’t waste any time complaining about my predecessor!”

Obama Left Them to Fight Their Guts Out for Seven Hours! (#Video)

In all candor, I actually believe Barack Obama thinks most of us Americans are stupid regarding the decisions he made and his inaction regarding the Benghazi assassinations. Those four Americans absolutely knew help was on the way and that it would be just a matter of an hour or two before they would be rescued. They had no doubt we would answer the call! They knew we would never leave them high and dry. I am furious that the person we grant authority to as commander in chief would leave an American Ambassador and three other great American patriots to fight their guts out for seven hours as he watched through high definition TV screens from a drone!

We will never forget!

Barack Obama, Commander in Chief?

BETRAYED

By Glen Goodsell

Photographer Unknown

I’m a registered Independent. In 2008 I was ready for change. I was committed to vote Obama and give my all to his rhetoric of hope and promises. However, a last minute change by Obama on a critical issue gave me a chilling look into the character and integrity of the man I was willing to support as our new President. I couldn’t cast my vote for Mr. Obama. My dilemma – where do I cast my pearls? I was not comfortable with the Republican candidate. I am a person of principle. I cast my vote for another rationalizing that I was voting my conscience. By voting in this way, in reality, I cast my vote for Mr. Obama, a ramification I was willing to risk. I, and others like me share in the responsibility for our current mess.

We have suffered under one we entrusted to lead and he has proven he is not up to the task. I cite only a few promises from Mr. Obama, which he, as our leader, has failed to honor; these are but three of many I could list:

  • “It is irresponsible, unpatriotic to raise the debt (referring to the Bush administration). I pledge to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term.”
  • “My administration will not rest until every American has a job.”
  • “I will make America safer.” Bengazi! We impeached a president in my lifetime for a cover up that did not involve the loss of one life.

Is America “the land of the free?” That is what our founding fathers believed. Do we believe this? I put forth that we are literally in bondage, a silent killer, bondage that will strangle us. That bondage is a government out of control. A government floundering and is no longer “by the people for the people” as Abraham Lincoln eloquently stated in his Gettysburg address. That bondage is a suffocating deficit, a suffocating debt.

What is the solution? We have a clear and decisive choice. We can sit passively waiting for the noose to tighten. Or we can fight to preserve our “unalienable rights.” We can elect Mitt Romney and others who will WORK and fight to free us from our bondage.

There is another broken promise from President Obama. He promised if he failed to deliver, his would be a one-term presidency. That is one promise we need to make him honor. My plea to all is to be wise. Make your vote count. My pride betrayed me in the last election. By casting my vote for a candidate that had no chance of winning I personally contributed to four of the most difficult years of my lifetime and likely your lifetime. I implore all to look within and do what is best – our very existence and ideals hinge in the balance. We have a man in Mitt Romney who is a leader. He is qualified. He will work. He will lead. He is accountable. President Obama does not want to lead. Let’s allow him to work on his golf game. He will work on his golf game whether he is in or out of the Oval office. I will not repeat my mistake of 2008!

I leave one more thought. Just after the Civil War General Robert E. Lee said to his soldiers “Bury your animosities and go home and make your sons Americans.” It is time for you and I to honor this call and be true Americans.

100 Reasons to Vote for Romney (against Obama) — by Hugh Hewitt

Recently, Hugh Hewitt dedicated his entire three hour radio program to a monologue (first time in his 12 years of radio) listing 100 reasons to vote for Mitt Romney for president and to reject Barack Obama. These 100 reasons begin here:

1. Mitt Romney believes in a second American century. He believes in American exceptionalism and that the 21st century should be the second American century.

2. Mitt Romney is a very good man with a great heart and a big vision for the country. He has character, which matters most in the office of the President.

3. Romney is a turnaround specialist. He knows how to prioritize tasks. This contrasts with President Obama’s disinterested approach to the failing economy.

4. President Obama is the least generous political person in recent memory at the national level. Never have we had a president who is so ungenerous to his opposition.

5. President Obama is the most partisan president we’ve ever had. We have always passed big laws in this nation with bipartisan support. On Obama’s biggest initiatives, he has had no Republican support.

6. Obama’s attack on Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan put together a comprehensive budget and invited the opposition to sit down and talk. The President proceeded to summon the republicans to the oval office, put Paul Ryan in the front row and taunted him, challenged him, and behaved in an unpresidential way. He is not presidential when it comes to his opponents. He is a street fighter, bitterly partisan.

7. Remember the statement, “I won”; when, after the President’s inauguration, the republicans in the house met with him and offered ideas how to proceed in a bipartisan fashion and he replied to them, “I won.

The One Question President Obama Must Answer Before America Reelects Him

By Mark Fidelman

President Obama has been attacked for not turning the economy around even after his promise to do so. Let’s cut him some slack. He probably believes Republican obstructionism is to blame, and he’s done everything possible during his first term. Just give him four more years, he pleads, it will all work out.

But don’t you get the feeling as I do that Obama’s new economic strategy resembles an infomercial pitch? Just a little of this, a sprinkle of that, and presto a new economy. Before, President Obama ran on hope and change, now he appears to be running on just hope: “We’ve come too far to turn back now,” he tells us.

I know Obama genuinely wants to grasp the economic strategies required to lead us out of a lousy economy and that if only government were to take charge, it could fix everything. Just sprinkle some green fairy dust across the energy sector, wave a magic job wand at small business, take the wealth potion from the rich and give it to the poor. The damsel is in economic distress, and Obama is relying on medieval enchantments for our survival.

Only in fairy tales are emperors advised that they are naked. And Obama’s advisors aren’t breaking with tradition. One gets the feeling they received the Berlitz learning method to business. They understand the language, but not the meaning. According to New York Times columnist David Brooks, while speaking to a group of us about Obama’s closest advisors: “there isn’t a single person with business experience amongst them.”

In 2008, no one dreamed the country would be left behind. We all thought we’d be better off; we’d be smarter, he’d bring the country together, he’d bring congress together for a bipartisan agenda. It hasn’t happened.

Obama has notably said, “There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America.” He’s not saying that anymore.

But there’s still hope. He can give a straight forward answer to the following bipartisan question - It’s never too late to keep a campaign promise.

What Will You Do Differently to Fix the Economy in the Next Four Years?

Obama seems to be taking his economic cues from Paul Krugman and the school of “Hope” economics. Krugman is who all left-leaning politicians point to in order to receive approval for their economic policies. He is their gold standard – and the gold plating they wrap around any economic legislation for which they want to insulate themselves from ridicule.

In reality though, there is no such person as Paul Krugman, there is only a shell containing the opinions of his cocktail party friends and the novels of economic fantasy worlds he had read. A man so responsive to compulsion that he has become a kind of compulsion himself to anything resembling a liberal economic idea. His instinctively leftist political agenda blinds him from being a truly objective economic advisor – and so he can’t be trusted to provide sound economic advice.

Take his 2008 article titled: The ComeBack Continent. In short, Krugman believed that the economic path forward resembled a European, nanny-state model, telling us not to worry because, “If you think Europe is a place where lots of able-bodied adults just sit at home collecting welfare checks, think again.”

Later in the article, Krugman goes on to call the situation in 2008 a European comeback, crediting its “big-government” approach to its success. Incredibly, he ends the article with, “But the next time a politician tries to scare you with the European bogeyman, bear this in mind: Europe’s economy is actually doing O.K. these days, despite a level of taxing and spending beyond the wildest ambitions of American progressives.”

But we should be scared. Shortly thereafter Europe’s economy started to collapse, and the most welfare-prone countries fell the hardest and fastest. Oddly, Krugman is still promoting the same naïve, ineffective policies that have Europe on the ropes.

As a kid, I used to believe in Robin Hood. I mean I truly believed in him. Krugman still does. He hasn’t learned how the story actually ends because he’s never participated in it. He’s been an academic, an author, an economist but never a businessman. He’s never built a business, worried about keeping the lights on or suffered hardship from taxing government policies. His solution to any economic issue is wealth redistribution. He’s of the “you didn’t build that somebody else made that happen” school of thought.

This is the kind of brainwashing you still find at the elite universities. The rest of us living in the real world know better. Because on our side we have reason, experience and concrete business strategies that work. For us, government gets in the way, it doesn’t pave it.

So Obama must move away from Krugmanomics and set a new course. One lined with less government and more business. Because in the final analysis, business leaders are held accountable for their success – not government bureaucrats. If business performance suffers, the government gets a free pass even if it’s the primary problem. This authority without responsibility situation is incompatible with a thriving economy.

Obama still needs to learn this lesson.

Pennsylvania: Governor Ed Rendell (D): “We’re Nervous”

THANK YOU to all of you! Those of us at Mitt Romney Central are witness to thousands of people across this great land of America who are working diligently, night and day, in so many critical ways to help Governor Romney get elected. As we research for the site, we receive comments, emails, tweets, and Facebook discussions in which it is apparent that many millions of man-hours are being logged in creative grassroots efforts everywhere, not to mention the prayers of faith. Only five more days of hard work. Keep it up. THANK YOU.

PENNSYLVANIA. George H.W. Bush is the last Republican to win it; that was 1988. Senator McCain lost it to Senator Obama in 2008 by 10%. You may recall that Governor Romney called it September 28th telling a crowd he would win the state. About two weeks ago, a reputable in-state poll was showing Romney leading Obama in Pennsylvania 49% to 45%.

Governor Romney has directed significant resources this past week into Pennsylvania and the Obama camp is saying he is desperate. It never occurs to the Obaminions there might be a strategy involved (“strategy” is Romney’s second middle name). Romney obviously has known for months that 96% of the Pennsylvania electorate vote in person on election day making the state a perfect blitz state for the last week. What is it called when desperate people call others desperate? What was it? “Panic?”

Writing for the WSJ yesterday, Matthew Kaminski provides outstanding insight in support of what appears to be a brilliant strategy by the Romney team.

Pennsylvanians have no problem voting Republican. Out of 67 counties, 52 are in GOP hands. So are 12 of 19 congressional districts, both houses of the state legislature and the governor’s mansion. Republican Pat Toomey won a Senate seat in 2010.

As party hacks know, the trouble for the GOP here is at the top of the ticket. The state last turned red in a presidential race 24 years ago for George H.W. Bush. His son made it a priority in 2004 and lost by 2.5%. Barack Obama’s 10-point win in 2008 was supposed to take it out of the swing column this year.

Yet one of the surprises of the past month is a quietly competitive race for Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes. Since the Denver debate on Oct. 3, Mr. Obama’s lead has narrowed to 4.7%, according to the RealClearPolitics average of state polls.
[…]
If Pennsylvania stages a surprise next week, it’ll come out of suburban Philadelphia. The four so-called collar counties (Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery) were once moderate Republican bastions. In the past two decades, the suburbs have gone for Democratic presidential candidates. You can’t win without them. Bucks (pop. 626,854) is the bellwether: A mix of educated middle-class, rural and blue-collar communities, it votes both ways in local elections—and always for the presidential winner.
[…]
Republicans in the collar counties had little reason for enthusiasm before the first debate. The morning after Denver, the party office in Bucks was overrun with people looking for Romney-Ryan lawn signs. The Romney message strategy echoes that of Sen. Toomey and other successful GOP candidates here two years ago: Talk about jobs and debt, appeal to bipartisanship, and avoid the subjects of abortion and religion as much as possible.

As it happens, Mr. Romney is the first Northeasterner to get the Republican nod since the Connecticut native Bush 41 in 1988. He looks and sounds like Republicans whom Pennsylvanians have voted for in the past. Texas swagger and Sarah Palin didn’t play well in Bucks.
[…]
Then comes a series of queries about high gas prices, a tough job market and how to balance budgets. A local software provider and Fitzpatrick supporter standing next to me in the audience says: “There’s only one businessman I know of who is doing better” than four years ago “and he’s a bankruptcy lawyer.”
[…]
A visible difference from 2008 is the improvement in the Republican ground game. As in Ohio, the Romney campaign has been able to tap local evangelicals and tea-party activists and has built up a decent infrastructure with 24 offices and 60 staffers in the state.
[…]
Ed Rendell, the former Democratic governor, says in a telephone interview before the Romney TV buys were announced that any late ad push may backfire for Republicans. “It would remind people that there’s an election going on,” he says. Republicans “clearly hope Democratic turnout collapses.” The Obama campaign, calling the Romney buys “a desperate play,” is going on air in response.

I love it. The Obaminions calling Romney’s move into Pennsylvania “desperate” is classic for, “Wow, we didn’t see this one coming and we better get our act together now and fast!” And you know how we know the Obaminions are wrong? Check Governor Rendell’s two word quote at the end of the next paragraph.

The Democratic game is about turnout. The president’s re-election campaign is a formidable operation. In a signal that Pennsylvania is not a closed deal, Mr. Obama last week gave an Oval Office interview to Michael Smerconish, a Philadelphia radio talk-show host who was born in Bucks County and has a following in the collar counties. Gov. Rendell sums up the mood among Democrats: “We’re nervous.”

[emphasis added]

And this from CNN:

On Monday’s Obama call, campaign manager Jim Messina said of Pennsylvania, “We’re not going to take anything for granted.”

The reason I am watching Pennsylvania so closely is because I think it is signaling something much larger. Somewhat akin to tremors in my state of California before a large earthquake. If Pennsylvania can fall from the Dems, what other states could we see hitting for Governor Romney? The Obaminions never thought their blue state would ever be up for grabs. They never saw this one coming. They are scrambling in full panic mode.

Romney Leads Obama in Early Voting 52% to 45% — “Reagan Excitement Level”

We are going to win one week from today!

Listening to Stephanie Desperation Cutter and David Panic Axelrod from the Sunday talk shows would have us all believe that President Obama has all but won this election. Cutter and Axelrod seem to be deeper encapsulated in the bubble than President Obama! Ms. Cutter is straining so hard to tow the line for Mr. Obama that she has lost all credibility (she blew by Axelrod after the first debate when she declared Obama the winner! Classic!). Even the TV pundits strain to help her out as she obviously believes her own advertising now (she talks and blinks faster every time she is on TV these days and I don’t think it is the caffeine). Stephanie Cutter obviously loves her White House job!

Remember, Senator Obama beat Senator McCain by only six points in 2008; that’s it! Six points! And that was during a year when everything was going his way; with the wind to his back and atmospheric expectations. After all, promises were in abundance fueled by the dreamy platitudes, faith in the future, and hope beyond hyperbole. Change for all!

There are so many variables and factors at play in 2012 that could make a huge difference in the final election results. Consider these: Obama got 95% of all African American votes; what if the same number of black voters turn out but only 80% or 70% vote for him? (see African American Bishop Jackson’s plea here). Many first time young voters that supported Obama in 2008 have been completely disillusioned by his many failures; what if 40% of these just don’t show up in 2012 or decide to take action for Romney? Remember the women voters? Obama told us all year he had them locked up and was leading by 20 to 35 points by some estimates; now Romney and Obama are tied with the women vote. What if 3, 5, or 9 percent of all Obama voters of 2008 just decide to stay home this election? Obama got a high percentage of the Jewish vote in 2008; what if the Jewish vote is split evenly this time? There are many other variables we could explore. I think we are going to see some big surprises this year.

Fact: More Republicans will vote in 2012 than in 2008. Yesterday, Gallup reported that Romney leads Obama in early voting 52% to 45%. Breitbart writer John Nolte writes:

Romney’s early voting lead in Gallup may not jive with the CorruptMedia narrative, but it does with actual early vote totals that have been released and show Romney’s early vote totals either beating Obama in swing states such as Colorado and Florida or chipping away at the President’s advantage in the others. For example, here’s what we know about Ohio’s early voting numbers, thus far [from Politico]:

But here is what we do know: 220,000 fewer Democrats have voted early in Ohio compared with 2008. And 30,000 more Republicans have cast their ballots compared with four years ago. That is a 250,000-vote net increase for a state Obama won by 260,000 votes in 2008.
[…]
Other than the fact that this is Gallup, another reason to embrace this poll is due to its very large sample size of 3,312 registered voters.

Ronald Reagan’s Treasury secretary, Bay Buchanan yesterday compared the look and feel of Romney’s 2012 campaign to that of the Reagan 1980 campaign:

“The intensity level is remarkable,” says Buchanan, who was also the treasurer of Reagan’s presidential primary campaigns in 1976 and 1980 and national treasurer of Reagan’s general election presidential campaigns in 1980 and in 1984.

“It’s not only showing up in the polls, but if you go out in the states as I have, in Florida and in Wisconsin, the excitement level is something that I haven’t seen since Reagan,” she says.

At a rally in Colorado, “The forum sat 10,000 people and 10,000 people packed in there and they had to turn people away,” Buchanan says. “In Leesburg, Va., there were 8,000 people in the line to get in, and it was a mile long down into the main part of town.”

Buchanan says Romney’s campaign has become a movement.
[…]
As a result, “From my personal experience, the excitement and enthusiasm of our supporters is equal to what I saw during Ronald Reagan’s first campaign,” Buchanan says. “We’re now a movement to change America, and Mitt Romney heads it up.”

Finally, how much influence do Israeli citizens have with the Jewish voter here in America? I have no idea, but consider the fact that 57% of Israelis prefer Romney to 22% that prefer Obama:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama by a whopping 35 percentage points among Israeli Jews when it comes to who they think will best look out for Israel’s interests, according to a new poll from Tel Aviv University/Israel Democracy Institute.

Rarely have I given my opinion here in MRC about polling or surveys. The reason being that statistics can be manipulated in so many diverse ways and unless one is willing to become an expert analyst he will just be manipulated. That said, I think we should completely ignore all polls in this last stretch of seven days, no matter how positive they may be. Governor Romney is bringing it. We need to work harder than we have ever worked to bring it in our neck of the woods.
