A Note of Thanks From Mitt and Ann Romney, Farewell Tribute

A ‘thank you’ from Mitt and Ann Romney…

Ann and I cannot thank you enough for supporting and believing in our cause.

This was more than just a campaign — this was a national movement.

Thank you for the work that you did — going across neighborhoods to knock on doors and put up yard signs. Thanks for making phone calls, coming to rallies, donating funds, and convincing friends and family to join our team.

What’s really inspiring is that you came together because you care about America.

We still believe that better days are ahead. It’s up to us to rally together to renew America’s promise and restore American greatness.

From the bottom of our hearts, Ann and I thank you for your support, prayers, efforts, and vote. We are forever grateful to each and every one of you.

Today’s a new day. Keep believing in America.

Thank you and God bless America,

Mitt and Ann Romney

With a full heart, this article is an attempt to convey the impossible - the depth of gratitude and admiration I feel for Mitt and Ann Romney. There just aren’t two better Americans.

To Mitt and Ann…You are heroes. Setting aside the comforts of privacy and home, because you dearly love America, you opened your arms to our nation. You didn’t offer a paltry, awkward one-arm extension, or an obligatory, half-way pat-pat hug. No, you offered a big, wide, all-encompassing we-love-you-we-want-to-help embrace. And it was wonderful. We felt your arms around us for nearly year and a half. Without thought of personal gain, you endured and shone throughout a rigorous campaign, continual scrutiny, the opposition’s brutal, incessant slander, media bias, the arm-chair critics, the long, never-ending on-your-feet hours, on-the-road suitcase living, and precious time away from your treasured family and other loved ones. You did it! With a deep desire to help reinvigorate and restore our troubled, economically traumatized country, you did it! You inspired us, lifted us, and gave us real hope. You did it with steely determination, strength, and style. And, you tied it all up with a ribbon of courage and class. Speaking on FOX News about the night of the election, dyed-in-the-wool Democrat strategist, Susan Estrich, said that you, Governor Romney, were a “model of dignity and grace, and set the tone” for civility. She spoke the truth.

To remember the good times we shared along the way, I’ve gathered a montage of a few memories…

FOX Business News: Mitt Romney on States’ Rights & Health Care Costs

David Asman (FOX Business News) and NY Jet’s owner Woody Johnson discussed Massachusetts’ health care coverage yesterday with former MA Governor Mitt Romney: 

A message from Mitt Romney:

Mitt Romney on book tourLast week, I launched the national tour for my new book, No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, and I must admit — it feels good to be on the road again.

The tour has already taken me to cities in New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, Florida, and Michigan, as well as to Washington, DC. And by the time it’s over, I’ll have visited dozens of cities in 19 states.

It’s been great reconnecting with old friends and making new ones as I travel across the country talking about our shared conservative values — that a competitive America is one where taxes are low and government is small, that our military superiority must never be compromised, that our cultural values need to be cherished and that unleashing the power of the free market is key to our economic future.

I hope to see you at one of my upcoming book events so that you can join this important dialogue, but even if you can’t be there in person, I hope you will stand with me in helping to make our conservative message heard.

As you know, this is a crucial midterm election year. All 435 Congressional seats, one third of the U.S. Senate, 37 Governorships, and control of numerous state legislatures are at stake. With your generous financial support of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, or even the maximum $5,000, to my PAC, we’ll have the resources to spread our message and elect conservative candidates throughout the country.

Mitt Romney book tour shirtsAnd, for a limited time, if you contribute at least $50, we’ll send you the official No Apology 2010 Book Tour t-shirt as a token of our appreciation (select your size below) . This much sought after, limited edition item is the same t-shirt worn by my staff and volunteers at our book events, and I’d be honored to have you wear it too as a key member of my team. And as an added bonus, the first 100 people who contribute at least $100 will receive their t-shirt signed.

I hope you will stand with me in these critical months ahead. With you by my side, I am sure that America will continue to be — as it always has been — a force for good like no other in this world. And for that, I make no apology.

Times are economically challenging for many of us, but now, more than ever, it’s critical that we do all we can to support Gov Romney’s hard work for conservative principles. He’s depending on US. GIVE to his Free and Strong America PAC and receive a No Apology t-shirt. Wear it proudly and you’ll be a walking billboard for a must-read book and a great American, Mitt Romney!

Mitt Romney: Why He Supports John McCain, ‘No Apology’ Book Tour Precursor to 2012 Presidential Run?

RT correspondent Kristine Frazao (the Alyona Show) reports on MittRomney’s ‘No Apology’ book tour, recent National Press Club speech, and speculates on a possible Romney 2012 presidential run:

When questioned why NPC attendees were ‘smitten’ with Romney, his experience, eloquence, and looks were mentioned. Frazao elaborates further:

“Everyone that I spoke to said we like his morals, his ethical background. We like that he has five children. As you heard in the story – that he married his college sweetheart. We like that he has grandchildren[…]They see him as a family man[…]They see him as somebody kind of centered in his moral compass[…].”
