Republican Convention Coverage and some of the most important speeches, statements, and “ideas” of our lives.

August 30, 2012
Mitt Romney has really nailed it and shown why he should and will be the next President of these blessed United States of America.
We’ve now seen his personal side, his real life, his real accomplishments, why he has a great record of accomplishment in such a mulitude of areas, why he has great leadership quality and capability, how he will restore our standing in the world and keep peace through strength, that he is faithful, humble, a servant, and that he will turn our nation around before it’s too late with real economic recovery, job creation, and prosperity. He needs us and we need him, now let’s get to work and get this done!

The life and accomplishments of Mitt Romney

‘The most extraordinary moment of the convention’ – August 31, 2012 Rick  Moran Byron  York is right. Many  critics say the Romney campaign needs to do more to “humanize” the  candidate.  What those critics might want to do is watch the Oparowski  story and ask if  they themselves could ever be as human, and humane, as  Mitt  Romney.

“The Best 6 Minutes for Mitt at the Republican National Convention”
With national news networks like MSNBC and CNN reliably cutting to commercials, the pundits, or hurrican coverage whenever
many of the woman, black, or latino’s spoke at the RNC, you might have missed the most compelling segments of the convention: Self-proclaimed liberal Jane Edmonds, Former Secretary of the Massachusetts Department of Workforce Development, speaks about Mitt Romney.

Olympians address the convention: Another very important segment, led by Kim Rhode-America’s skeet and trap shooting champion, these olympians articulate how Mitt Romney saving the 02 winter olympics was not as a figurehead, but rather as a hands on leader, and it is that very leadership that America now desperately needs.
