Romney has given more money to the US government than OBama EVER would. He has given 15% of his money to charity, and GAVE UP ALL his inheritance! The whole argument about whether he is evading taxes is ridiculous. EVERYONE in their right mind knows their money IS NOT spent best by government, and EVERYONE tries to avoid paying more taxes than they have to! The democrats have MASSIVE amounts of money in the Caymen Islands as well! LIARS and HYPOCRITS, is the democratic socialist party.
THEY are the King John to Romney's Robin Hood.
Romney is head and shoulders above the unsubstantial, insincere, manipulative Obama. He exudes competency and discipline, and is a REAL American, not an affirmative action baby that was judged on the color of his skin not the content of his character his entire life. I am proud to be an American when I see people who are true American success stories.
When Obama has free time, he heads to the golf course to be with his buddies. Now, which husband would the soccer moms prefer? Yet, they still think Clinton and Obama "care" about them.
The "haves and the have nots" campaign OBama is running on is what Karl Marx suggested and what all marxists have used to grow government and get elected.
Great interview with Chris Wallace. I mean some people in here complain about them liking Costco?? GROW UP!! How many companies do you shop at that contribute to planned parenthood? TRY TARGET, GENERAL MILLS and GE...People who judge should look at their own shopping habits...WHAT A STUPID criticism. Yes I know about the Chairman of Costco....then never go to Disney, Universal, Warner Bros or use Quicken Loans because all of those CEOs are big Democrat contributors!! I liked his answer about family, shopping, activities and life. Ann and Mitt are big with their family...THAT RELATES WELL...and when you see Ann and how he talks about her...WOMEN LOVE THAT!! My favorite scene was watching Mitt carry his Grandson with the ball at the end....that was fantastic...because that makes him so human and real. Parents will love seeing that....Ann and Mitt really are great together....his home in NH looks like many summer camps and retreats. Yes it is beautiful but when Chris mentioned there are no maids or help...that was a home run...THEY DO IT ALL THEMSELVES!! Very nice!
Wow, what a genuine, loving family! This is the kind of family you wish lived next door to you! It's going to be SO wonderful to have these people in the WH, working FOR us and not AGAINST us! Representing us proudly, not resentfully!
Onward to November is all that I can say!
(Sidebar: p m, you were right, I did love those videos! :-) )
He's a good man, he's unpretentious, he loves his family, he believes in America, and he seems like a good businessman. Sounds like the guy I want in the White House.
Good family values, good sense of humor, loves and cares about the country, loves his wife.. cooks, grocery shops, and even cleans. What's there not to like?
I hope the White House staff will clean that place really well, it hasn't know the scent of wholesome honest living in a while. It must reek of arrogance and loathing.
I remember hearing that the Clinton administration trashed the WH before they left.....don't expect anything more from this hateful bunch.
Great interviews. The Romneys are regular people. No nose up in the air arrogance like the Obamas. What a breathe of fresh air.
Loved both interviews! Can't wait to see more of Mr. & Mrs. Romney & their family! Wouldn't it be lovely to have a family who cherishes each other instead of fame & fortune in the White House? Our country could benefit from their family values!
i should add to the discourse here that when mitt was governor of my state his personal car was a (ford) crown vic while his successor (democrat) deval patrick was planning on a caddy until the pr got overwhelming. still, i'm not sure what patrick drives at the moment.
add to that romney giving away his father's inheritance, passing on his pay from the olympics and as gov. (just google it)
so much for romney being an out of touch elitist.
I wonder how many of those who claim Romney's 'not in touch' do their grocery shopping, laundry, iron their own shirts, etc. This interview just put him up a few points in my way of thinking. Sounds like pretty much an ordinary guy to me.
Both videos were great. It's nice to see the family side of the Romney's for a change. I guess he's not just the evil corporate raider that the media portrays him to be. As Wallace said at the end, "Not a bad guy, is he?" It's not the image the media generally wants to paint of him.
However, you can bet his comments about his overseas investments not reducing his US taxes one iota are going to be scrutinized to the nth degree by the media and I'm sure they'll say he's lying through his teeth to cover up his 'deception'.
No wealthy businessman, who has a blind trust, tells their accountants to try not to reduce their tax burden. Everybody tries to reduce their tax burden. There's nothing wrong with that. But the media will play this up as unpatriotic and evil. Just watch come Monday morning.
The second interview (with the family in New Hampshire) was just like 60 Minutes when it used to be good. What a great role model this family will be when they, please God, inhabit the White House next January. Mitt flipping pancakes was priceless.
Wonderful. I only hope a large number of Americans will see these interviews. Even the often cynical Chris Wallace seemed to wilt at times in the aura of their genuine charm.
Love it. I wish the rest of America who are being lied to by the main stream media would get a chance to see this second clip. No mom, or dad would not want to have a family like this. They may have wealth, but their greatest wealth is their family. I am sure if you asked Mitt if he had to chose between his worldly wealth & his family, he would not hesitate to give it all for his wife Ann & his family.
It would be nice to have a real family man in the White House.
Ann would probably cut the staff Mrs. Obama has hired and that would help to balanced the budget.
They are a very likeable couple. For the life of me, I don't comprehend when it's said that Oblunder is MORE likeable. I find him loathsome along with his wife. The Romneys just happen to be living the American dream of monetary success and a strong marriage. I suppose that alone is reason for democraps to dislike him.
I didn't really understand it either, but think about this-
When somebody is about to tell you some really bad news, they always feel the need to soften the blow by saying something nice. The likeability tells me that a massive number of people are about to "break up" with Obama.
Obama is far more likeable than Romney. Listen to those guys give speeches. If you ignore Obama's code words, he comes off much more personable than Romney.
Mittens will have to prepare mightily for the debates to avoid getting trounced. He will have to make sure that every answer to every question is "...the economy."
Mittens will win the election, but he was by far the weakest choice (besides Gingrich and Perry...noted RINOs) for the GOP nomination and it will show in his inability to pull away from Obama in the polls, when any competent Conservative would have.
Yes. Socialists, community agitat...activists, environuts (extremist environmentalists), "young skulls full of mush", labor unions, the CPUSA, and the SPUSA like him immensely.
....competent, personable, agreeable and moderate................huh?
To me he appears incompetent, phoney, despicable and far left.........but that's just me :)
Despite all that, Obama and his team were able to manipulate the public. The guy is very talented at PR. And while his speeches aren't as "holy" as some would make it seem, they generally make him appear competent, personable, agreeable, and moderate.
While Biden's "...negro dialect..." description of Obama was racist, it was a very spot on analysis to what the DNC was looking for in 2008 from a marketing perspective.
I agree, how can a hateful person like Obama be likeable or his hateful wife. I cant wait to see them leave our White House for good.
I do not myself read the Bible daily, but I am heartened to hear that the Romneys value daily scripture reading. Fifty years ago I would have assumed that this was a pious pretense, but I now know that such people do exist and they are helping to keep our culture alive. I also believed Mitt when he said his candidacy wasn't ego driven; he actually does want to take arms against the sea of troubles America is experiencing, and do something constructive about them. I still don't know where he' ll take us, but I feel that at least he's not lying to us.
To be honest...I'm a bit concerned about what "scripture" he is reading.
However, as a cult of personality, I think the Mormon church has done well to push aside the first 100 or so years of its existence and concentrate more on core Christian principles so that it can become more "mainstream."
That said, a man should be able to believe in whatever he wants.
Are you concerned about the "scripture" or core principles of Black Liberation Theology preached at Jeremiah Johnson's church?
We will have to agree to disagree. The Mormon religion does not preach Anti-American hate as does BLT. (and the Black Panthers/Skinheads)
I'm not a Mormon but know many folks who are; all are strong and caring people who build character and practice family values.
The Mormon Church's views on both Christian and Mormon scripture are more concerning. However, they have left most of the extremism in the dust...so not much of a problem.
Black Liberation Theology and groups like the Black Panthers are of no more concern than fringe white extremist groups...no matter how much sites like "The Blaze" (which I generally love but find a bit annoying with its disposition to zaniness and unnecessary alarmism) would like you to think otherwise.
Great interviews.So good to see the family so close and that values are so important to the Romney family.
Both segments were great, but I particularly liked the one with the family and their interaction. I got a chuckle out of their comments about shopping at Costco! What a contrast to how O's been trying to portray them.
Who wouldn't be proud to have them in the WH. Can't wait for the convention to begin.
Oh my gosh, you're right. I had forgotten about that. While Ann was shopping for the family, Moose was shopping for a phony Obamaloney picture op. It was soooo insulting to all of us. They really do think we are stupid and buy into that garbage. Since it was so forgettable, I can't remember if it was before or after one of her exotic vacations on our dime.
Yeah, and she bought cleaning products. Ha. Like she uses cleaning products. Somehow, I just can't see her cleaning the White House toilets and polishing the bathroom mirror. Nope, just can't see it.
I would have loved to hear Michelle respond to this video - "Costco? What's a Costco? Is it some kind of horse show, or what?"
