On this eve before Super Tuesday, it was refreshing to see a couple of positive pieces for Mitt Romney on FOX News.
Today, Ann Romney was interviewed by Neil Cavuto. They both deal with the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis; Cavuto asked her about the rigors of campaigning. It was a wonderful exchange; Ann focused on Governor Romney’s ability to turn things around:
Featured in a phone interview today on the opening segment of FOX News’ The Five, charming and outspoken former First Lady Barbara Bush spoke on why she supports Mitt Romney. She also offered a second ‘unofficial’ endorsement for Romney on behalf of her husband, President, George H.W. Bush. In an interview with the Houston Chronicle on December 22, 2011, President Bush 41 said he was drawn to Romney’s “stability, experience, principles,” adding, “He’s a fine person. I just think he’s mature and reasonable - not a bomb-thrower.”
Last Friday, Mrs. Romney visited Romney campaign headquarters in Ohio to thank volunteers and cheer on supporters. While speaking, she highlighted the impact women are having in the election:
“The message that has been resonating for me, as I’ve been speaking all across this country, has been an economic message, and I love it that women are concerned and are voting for economic reasons. This is so important,” said Mrs. Romney. “What I hear from all women – I heard it in Florida, I heard it in Michigan, I heard it in Nevada, I heard it New Hampshire, I heard it everywhere, everywhere I go – is that moms are very angry about the deficit spending in Washington, D.C. They are very upset about the burdens their children are going to inherit, and they think it’s irresponsible of us to pass along that kind of burden to our children and grandchildren.”
“I think women in the general election are going to make a huge difference in this nation and … for the first time, may be voting their pocketbooks, which is great,” continued Mrs. Romney.
