Unlike Barack Obama, Mitt Romney KNOWS how to create jobs…

Shining a spotlight on Governor Romney’s phenomenal achievements in the private sector, here are three NEW videos released today by Romney for President on website

In 1986, Mitt Romney and Bain Capital helped found Bright Horizons, a childcare business that established company-sponsored day care centers at corporations, hospitals, universities, and government agencies. By providing on-site day care, Bright Horizons makes it possible for parents to stay close to their children while at work.

Though the company did not make a profit in its first five years, Bain Capital stuck with the business to help it succeed. Today, Bright Horizons employs 20,000 workers, pays employees above-market wages, and has consistently been ranked as one of the “100 Best Companies To Work For In America.” Additionally, Bright Horizons has been a good corporate citizen by being actively involved in charitable and youth-wellness causes. First Lady Michelle Obama and others have praised Bright Horizons for serving “as an example for child care centers nationwide.”

Bright Horizons Co-Founder Doug Wooden with former employee Kim Bealieu:


Mitt Romney and Bain Capital invested in a defibrillator manufacturer facing an existential crisis following years of regulatory shutdowns. As the only investor willing to take on such a large risk, Bain Capital succeeded in turning around Physio Control and saving hundreds of jobs. Romney’s and Bain Capital’s support helped Physio Control design and distribute portable defibrillators, which have saved countless lives since their introduction in the 1990s. Unfortunately, Obamacare will place onerous new taxes on medical device manufacturers like Physio Control, killing jobs and stifling innovation.


Masland designed and manufactured components for car interiors for companies like Ford, GM, and Chrysler. Under Bain Capital’s ownership, the business took off and created hundreds of American manufacturing jobs in Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and California. Bain Capital also supported Masland’s innovative benefits program that let every worker share in the company’s success; every Masland employee received the same benefits package regardless of rank. When Bain Capital sold its stake in Masland in 1993, the business employed over 3,000 workers, and Masland’s Carlisle, Pennsylvania plant had grown into the largest automotive carpet plant in the world.

That’s what we’re talking about, America! Mitt Romney = JOBS!

USA’s Red Number Day: Paul Ryan Effusive re Romney’s Reform Plan

Don’t forget to complete today’s “One a Day for Mitt” Action Item.

Click on image to enlarge.

So much has been verbalized about governmental out-of-control spending and what needs to be done that people’s eyes either glaze over or shoot blood. Nevertheless, the United States of America marked a red letter number day yesterday.

We, the taxpayers, are holding $15 TRILLION worth of debt.

This is a good time to remind readers that earlier this month, Jennifer Rubin (Washington Post) called House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan to get his take on Mitt Romney’s spending and entitlement reform PLAN. She reports:

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Paul Ryan has nothing but praise for Romney plan
Nov 4, 2021

I spoke with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) by phone a short time ago after the details of Mitt Romney’s spending and entitlement reform plan were released. It is fair to say that the often optimistic and cheery Ryan was downright effusive about the contents of the plan.

Ryan told me, “Look at what he put out! This is a great development. It shows that the elusive adult conversation is taking place, but all on one side.” He ticked off the proposals including block-granting, cutting the federal workforce and entitlement reform. He said, “This tracks perfectly with the House budget.” He was careful not to forget the other GOP candidates, adding that “Romney and others are serious” about real fiscal reform.
He dismissed that notion that conservatives should be “quibbling” over Romney choosing a 20 percent cap rather than 18 or 19 percent of GDP. Ryan told me, “This is getting government back to its historic size” at a time when the retirement population is growing by leaps and bounds. He added, “This is getting us toward a prosperity agenda that will allow the private sector to grow.”

Ryan said he’s been talking to all the candidates and spoke with Romney directly yesterday. Without wanting to go into the details of the conversation, he said, “I was very pleased with these kind of entitlement reforms.”

Congressman Ryan released the following video yesterday:

Meanwhile, we wait to see what happens with this.

To put our red numbers in perspective, gasp here.

Praise for Romney’s Jobs Plan: Book is Detailed, Easy to Understand, and FREE

Candace Salima, US Daily Review contributor, praises Mitt Romney’s 156 page detailed jobs plan:

Book Review: Believe in America by Mitt Romney

I don’t believe we’ve ever seen a candidate for United States president publish the basis of his economic plan for all to read before. And yet, this is precisely what Mitt Romney has done. He then, very wisely, made it available in electronic format, both on his website and on Kindleand to top it all off, it’s free.

That’s the right price for me, so I immediately downloaded it onto my laptop and Galaxy Tab and started reading. I was not only pleasantly surprised by the thoroughness of the contents, it set a new standard for me in presidential candidates. Let me explain.

When someone, Mitt Romney in this instance, puts a plan down on paper, we can then hold them to it, every aspect of it. That takes a certain kind of conviction and ability to stand behind what you say. I’d like to see the rest of the candidates do the same. I’d like their plans for the U.S. economy down on paper, published, and made available, for free, to the American people. Then we can vote on facts rather than just debates, websites, and news articles. Of course, you’ll be held accountable, but isn’t that the point of the current political climate. Taking responsibility.

Ms. Salima agrees with Romney’s list of problems that America is grappling with: taxes, regulations, trade policies, energy, labor, human capital, and fiscal policies.

She appreciates Romney’s commitment to his jobs/economic plan, the way it is outlined, and that the price is right - FREE:

This takes an immense amount of belief in one’s stance on the issues. Whether you support Mitt Romney or not, I am going to encourage you to read Believe in America because I came away with a clear, concise understanding of the fiscal situation we are now facing, as well as a solid plan to put America back on the proper fiscal path. It is written in understandable language and is not in a complicated fashion. It was written, I believe, to put forth Romney’s plans for America so it could be understood by everyone willing to read it.

…[I]t is short, concise and worth the read.

Romney in Perry Territory Today, Delivers Speech to VFW in San Antonio, TX

Governor Mitt Romney was in Rick Perry territory today. He delivered an impassioned speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) at their 112th convention in San Antonio, Texas.

What’s interesting is that Perry was invited to speak at the same event three months ago and didn’t respond - until the VFW called him out.

Politico’s Maggie Haberman reports:

“The VFW also has a tradition of inviting the governor of the host state where its annual convention is being held to come and welcome and greet our convention delegates. Although Governor Perry was similarly sent an invitation 3 months ago, apparently our invitation was deemed not important enough for the governor’s office to at least accept or decline the invitation. Governor Perry’s candidacy for president does not provide him an excuse for bad manners. The White House and Governor Perry can rest assured that the 2 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries will remember this discourteous treatment for a very long time to come.”

Obama never changed course on attending, but Perry did the next day, and the VFW took note of it in a press release.

Jennifer Rubin from the Washington Post watched Romney’s address and was impressed. Here are a few of her comments:

A bolder Romney

Jennifer Rubin, before picking at the substance of Rick Perry’s VFW speech from yesterday, reports that the group had actually slammed him and President Obama for not attending in a press release on its web site on Aug. 22:

As those in and around the Mitt Romney campaign have explained privately and on the record, the frenzy about Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s surge in the national polls hasn’t panicked them. They, of course, lived through the 2008 race when Sen. John McCain came from far behind, Rudy Giuliani melted and Fred Thompson turned out to be much to do about nothing. That isn’t to say they intend to sit back. Their game plan was in full view at the VFW speech today in Texas.

Whoever Romney has fired or hired to assist with speechwriting, the change was somewhat dramatic. Gone were equivocations and recycled stump speech lines. This is a more aggressive and more colorful Romney.

He began with the list of enemies — “Some are jihadists, some are communists, and some are simply tyrants who clothe themselves in any convenient political manifesto. And so once again, American heroes are called upon to defend liberty.” Notice “liberty,” a word that’s fallen out of fashion with many conservatives. If Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s speech was limiting (not “military adventurism” and only fight when “vital national interests” are at stake), Romney’s (again, not his usual style) was anything but.

Then came the quick shift to the economy, which remains Romney’s focus and, his team contends, his best issue. He told the crowd:

25 million Americans are out of work, or have stopped looking, or have only part time jobs but want full-time work. Home values have dropped more than they did during the Depression. National debt is almost as large as our entire economy, and we owe a huge chunk of it to China. Incredibly, unfunded government promises now total about $530,000 per American household. This cannot possibly stand as the legacy we will leave the next generation.

And the peril of this mismanagement may even be more imminent. We stand near a threshold of profound economic misery. Four more years on the same political path could prove disastrous.

I am a conservative businessman. I have spent most of my life outside of politics, dealing with real problems in the real economy. Career politicians got us into this mess and they simply don’t know how to get us out!

And that is his pitch both in the primary and the general election. He doesn’t mention Perry by name, and until the debates, I wouldn’t count on him doing so. But the message is that pols don’t get how the private sector works. They know about bailouts, crony capitalism, borrowing and spending. Expect to hear a whole lot about that in Nevada next week when he rolls out his jobs speech and in the fall debates.

Then it was back to foreign policy. Here, he put some meat on the bones. That’s going to be another theme you’ll see more of: He’s got answers, the other guys and gals have rhetoric.

Romney’s team has insisted that as voters turn the attention back to the campaign and the fall debates dominate the political news, we will see some robust policy pronouncements. This had the feel of a warm-up, an effort to lay down some markers and begin to introduce some themes. It was a different sort of speech than Perry’s, more specific and more attention paid to the economy. Expect more of that and a clearer delineation between the candidates, if not on ideology then on experience and capability.
