Announcing MRC’s New Campaign: I’m comMITTed!

committed to romney badge

When we launched MittRomneyCentral.com a little over three years ago we had just one purpose in mind: help Mitt Romney become elected President of the United States. In order to achieve that goal, we have worked hard to build our audience by providing an attractive website, informative daily updates, cutting-edge SEO, and outreach into the social media platforms. We continue to have great success and daily growth on Twitter (26K followers) and Facebook (76K likes). Each day we have several thousand return visitors to our website - some of the most engaged, informed and supportive fans of the Romney-Ryan team.

Building an audience is key to reaching our goal - but followers, fans, Facebook likes, and daily visitors are NOT the measuring sticks by which we will gauge our success. Our end purpose is not to entertain insatiable minds with news and commentary.

The purpose of MittRomneyCentral.com is to spur engaged readers into engaged volunteers.

It is an unfortunate reality that so many who are concerned with politics never do anything more than wring their hands with nervous hope that the things that matter will take care of themselves. They won’t, unless we act.

My hope is that YOU, the reader, will:

  1. Contemplate your ability to contribute time and/or money
  2. Have the willingness to act accordingly
  3. Act now!

The time to delay and procrastinate has passed! No more cheering from the sidelines. No more excuses… It is time to get comMITTed!

ComMITTed to putting this country on a course of financial stability!
ComMITTed to handing our posterity a country not burdened with crushing debt!
ComMITTed to fighting the ills of liberalism, starting with firing Barack Obama!
ComMITTed to saving the future of this great country we love!
ComMITTed to do everything you can to elect Romney-Ryan on November 6th!

Today we launch this campaign with the hope that all of you will take that crucial last step to activism. We have a static page dedicated to providing information on ways you can best serve the campaign. GET STARTED HERE: http://MittRomneyCentral.com/comMITTed

As part of the “I’m comMITTed” campaign, we will also post daily highlights from volunteers, details of Romney campaign events in swing states, and continued instructions of how you can help. Look for more posts later today, and each day up until election day.

Mitt and Ann Romney Attend ‘Points of Light’ Gala Honoring Volunteerism, Pres and Mrs. George H. W. Bush

Mitt and Ann Romney attend the 'Points of Light' Dinner honoring President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush. Washington DC, March 20, 2022

Mitt and Ann Romney attended the prestigious Points of Light gala honoring President George H. W. Bush. Held in the Kennedy Performing Arts Center (Washington D.C.) on Sunday, March 20, 2011, the All Together Now: A Celebration of Service event was a historic night celebrating the essential role volunteerism plays in strengthening America.


Along with 2300 attendees, three of the four sitting presidents were present (Obama was traveling in South America; he taped a video tribute to President Bush.) Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, Darius Rucker, Reba McEntire, and Carrie Underwood were among the entertainers.

Points of Light blog:

[…] Tonight we honor President and Mrs. George H. W. Bush for their leadership in founding and advancing the modern-day service movement in the Tribute event All Together Now: A Celebration of Service in Washington, D.C.
[…]
This historic event was created to celebrate the power of voluntary action and its essential role in solving our national challenges and to recognize everyone around the nation who are positively changing the lives of others. The audience is made up of many of the Daily Points of Light Award winners along with those who are closely connected to the service movement.

In a Fox News interview earlier this month President George H. W. Bush discussed the importance of volunteering and specifically Points of Light Institute saying: “I keep repeating there could be no definition of a successful life that does not include service to others. That is what the whole concept of Points of Light is about and volunteerism.”

President George H. W. Bush encourages everyone to get involved in civic service: “Get in the arena in doing something, making something happen, trying to benefit others, and that’s noble.”

Geroge H. W. Bush served as Pres Reagan's Vice President. In 1989, he succeeded Reagan in the presidency.

Neil Bush, son of the elder President Bush and Points of Light Board Chairman, said that his father helped launch the Points of Light Institute in 1990 “to inspire, equip and mobilize people to take action that changes the world.”

Bush’s commitment to public service dates back to World War II, when he became the youngest fighter pilot in the U.S. military. He followed his father, a Connecticut senator, into elective office as a Republican congressman from Houston from 1967 to 1971. Among the other lines on his long résumé: U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Republican National Committee chairman, U.S. envoy to China, CIA director, vice president and president.

Honoring President Bush: The Event

According to son Neil, the ever-modest elder President Bush needed a little arm twisting to go along with the celebration[…]. But he agreed to attend, given that the night is also about so many others who volunteer their time to their communities.

Not to be overlooked, former First Lady Barbara Bush has been a powerful advocate for family literacy:


The Points of Light gala will be broadcast for all to watch on Monday March 28th from 8-9 p.m. on NBC.

Thank you, President George H. W. Bush, for championing volunteerism. We greatly appreciate the exemplary service you and Mrs. Bush continue to give our nation.

UPDATE: It was an honor to see this article mentioned on the Points of Light Institute website!
