Ann Romney easily gave the best speech of the night and that’s saying something because there were some fantastic speeches. But she knocked it out of the park.

    Ann Romney hit a bases loaded home run.

    America is God blessed… again.

  • p m

    She is definitely his strongest asset. What a contrast to you know who.
    Great speech.

    • FreeManWalking

      Does the ‘who’ MOO and OOCH?

    • detectivedick

      But “you know who” can grow sweet tatters in the fake garden at 1600 Pa. Ave. We as a Nation need the return of a classy First Lady, way to go Mrs. Romney

    Very powerful segment starting at 16:25. If you don’t watch the whole thing, at least watch that part.

    HOME RUN….BABE RUTH STYLE!!! Boy I liked her speech…this woman is beautiful, real, classy, intelligent, insightful and warm. I was moved by her speech as a man. You can see how much she loves and believes in her man and how she knows how hard he will work for US…AMERICA. I grew up in a large family and my mother worked her butt off and I adore her…it is so true no one loves you like your mother and no one worries, works and tries harder then your mother….ANN YOU TOUCHED SO MANY MEN AND WOMEN…boys adore their mothers and women want to be like their mothers….just a shining example of GRACE AND ELEGANCE….and a wonderful sense of humor. Mitt is a lucky man…I really loved how you mentioned how you and Mitt started out in a Basement Apartment. And yes Ann, parents and people lie awake at night wondering about how they will make, the cost of things and providing for their loves ones!!

    I would say 5 boys and 18 grandchildren give you SUPERB insight to the family.

    You said…Mitt will not fail and I believe you!!

    Wonderful just Wonderful…she should be with Mitt all the time!! You can tell just how much she loves him and he her!!

    And Ann thank you for the shout out to SINGLE DADS….that was so nice to hear as well…a group that is rarely mentioned by exist everywhere!

    A PLUS PLUS!!! and another PLUS!!

    • StandingGround

      I agree wholeheartedly, Michael, and I would consider myself a “tough sell”. She was sincere and relatable and a Real person. I liked her.

    • Michael Shepard

      I totally disagree…I think it was more like a Mickey Mantle blast. Seriously..you are right…Mitt IS lucky…& so are we,to have such an amazing First Lady next November. The daughter of a Welsh coal miner…I’ll bet I’m not the only one who didn’t know that. She’s as cool as the bottom side of the pillow.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001070959205 Kevin Hogan

    Her intensity verifies her authenticity. It wasn’t yelling. It wasn’t anything else but surety. Thanks, Ann, you are the best!!

  • http://twitter.com/ningrim Jose

    conversational tone is always superior to yelling or lecturing, Cheney knew this and Ann does it masterfully

    don’t preach at me, talk like we’re at the dinner table

    • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

      Get your elbows off the table! And don’t chew with your mouth open!

      You call these dishes clean?

  • tinker_thinker

    I have to agree, she was great! Refreshing!

  • poljunkie

    Absolutely fantastic. As I said earlier, If my husband ever chose to run for office or any position, I only hope that I could represent him in such a dignified manner.
    Mrs Romney made many thoughtful statements about Mitt Romney that were endearing and with charm
    Mitt Romney wasn’t my choice as far as candidates but it is what it is, and honestly I was happy with the voices tonight.

    • warpmine

      Do you get the feeling that this isn’t the first time in her life that she’s been proud of her country?

      • poljunkie

        YES!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jaspersilvis Jasper Silvis

      You mean if you decide to run for office, you wish he would represent you in such a dignified manner. ;-)

      • poljunkie

        Thanks Jasper. I wouldn’t want to be vetted.
        Didnt do anything horrible but college days were a little too fun, im afraid.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jaspersilvis Jasper Silvis

          Same. Already told my wife if anyone runs for office in our family, it would have to be her. She is an excellent church council president, so she has a lot to offer. Take care and God bless.

    As for Juan Williams at FOX….drive off a cliff loser…she looked like a corporate wife….what a pathetic little man you are Juan….I would say he is very nervous…he knows SHE KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!! She was the Speech that everyone wanted to hear and boy HOME RUN..talk about grace under pressure. Brit Hume ” BEST SPEECH HE HAS EVER SEEN BY SPOUSE OF CANDIDATE”

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      her speech got the spike, NOT christie’s, and your correct juan is a small pathetic person.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/6TFSBPXVSCDIMIGDESK63L4VKY Michael

        And to be honest Anyone the MOST IMPORTANT SPEECH WAS HERS…why? because she provided the best insight into the choices he would make as a man and President…her speech mattered the most!! This is what women were looking for and independents will like her sincerity and passion. She is very believable and a joy to listen. When they know what is behind the man that tells them they can believe in the man!! Christie’s speech was very good but Ann’s was the one that would change the most minds…..

        • p m

          Great comments, thank you – Ann’s and Rick Santorum’s were the tops for me tonight. He was amazing too.

    • PVG

      Preach it Brit!

  • hbnolikeee

    i kinda wish she had also said that this was NOT the first time she was proud of this country…

    • FreeManWalking

      She did, maybe not in those word but in everything she said exemplified her pride in being American.

  • PVG

    My Girl playing at the end……nice touch. Beautiful lady and spirit. What a breath of fresh air!!!

  • chatterbox365

    This was a classy speech. At first I wasn’t sure where she was going with her speech, but it fell into place nicely.

    I thought it was odd that Christie’s speech would contradict Ann’s (respect instead of love) and this was something pointed out by the FOX crew.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/6TFSBPXVSCDIMIGDESK63L4VKY Michael

      Two different type of love Chatterbox…one is the love of a man for principle, family, country, others and his wife….the Love from Christie is the love of oneself and seeking love and adoration…totally different….No contrast at all…when you look at the context by which both spoke it is very easy to see the difference…Mitt’s love is real and lasting….the one Christie spoke of flutters and wanes.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        agreed.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Boy she hit it out of the park, I was watching on the computer, what did the analysts at fox say?

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      all were impressed except for juan williams.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        What a moron Juan williams is, he is supposed to be an objective analyst, what an imbecile this guy is.

        • anyonebutbarry2012

          yes he is….

      • proudhispanicconservative

        thank you

      • Conservative_Hippie

        I used to like Juan, I mean as much as you can like a Lib, but I lost a lot of respect for him last night.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/6TFSBPXVSCDIMIGDESK63L4VKY Michael

      Charles and Brit loved it….best speech ever by spouse….Juan Williams typical jerk…said she looked like corporate wife….well Juan not most of the corporate wives I know….there was nothing but love and sincerity in her voice and heart….

      So proud outside of the pathetic little man known a Juan Whiner….the others loved it!

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Thank you guys…

  • proudhispanicconservative

    If only the sitting first lady, and the challenger’s first lady, had a debate I would put my money on this lady, what a class act. She will be a great dignified first lady, one that will restore grace to the title of first lady.

    • wodiej

      well first they would need to work around MO’s vacations.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        LOL!

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    Michelle Malkin
    OH NO HE DIDN’T…OH YES HE DID! Juan Williams attacked Ann Romney after her lovely convention speech as a “corporate wife” who can’t identify with American women because she’s “rich.” The backlash was fierce across social media. Watch the video at the link. Read/share/like this post to show your disgust!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Its so typical of liberals to find something to complain about, I hope it costs him his job I really do.

      • anyonebutbarry2012

        i do not care for him at all. some used the words, small, petty, imbecile. i agree, he is.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          I hope since he knows what a corporate wife looks like, I hope he knows what a corporate pink slip looks like when fox fires him.

  • RocklinConservative

    WOW!!! Not only did she knock it out of the park … it left Dodger Stadium, flew over the Met’s stadium and landed at the Statue of Liberty!

    Bravo Ann. Bravo!!!!

    • badbadlibs

      Couldn’t possibly top your comment! Well said!

  • nibblesyble

    She is one classy, smart, lovely lady…next First Lady…you betcha!

    • http://profiles.google.com/ajtelles Art Telles

      Dittos…

      And, did you notice… after she finishes a statement, Ann Romney holds her smile with confidence, with assurance, with original intent?

      There’s just something about how she holds her smile that tells me that she believes what she is saying that produces her smile.

      Art

    • Conservative_Hippie

      I couldn’t help but make a comparison between Ann and Sarah. You betcha Sarah was smiling at that speech also!

      • nibblesyble

        so true

  • AbdulBX

    I am still in shock how good she was. Apologies to Christie, but Ann should have ended the night. She was that good.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Agreed!

  • Reckoner_3

    If you don’t want to vote against Obama replacing him with Romney?

    At least vote against Michelle Obama and replace her with Ann

  • http://twitter.com/shelly99032 Shelly Sands

    Hmm ok maybe I’m going to get jumped here but I didn’t see anything special. I agree she’s a class act but I wasn’t that impressed with her speech. I’m impressed with her as a person but the speech was good not great imho. I thought Santorum’s and Artur’s was better. Theirs seemed more real and heartfelt. She had a couple of good lines but that’s it.

    • Mike Lee

      I agree. I like and respect Mrs. Romney. I think she’s one heck of a woman. FIVE BOYS! lol. Remember, that’s a ton of pressure to deal with, and she probably doesn’t have much experience giving speeches. Aside from political junkies, it won’t matter at all. She’s not running for POTUS. She’d make a fine first lady.

      • http://twitter.com/shelly99032 Shelly Sands

        I just don’t agree with everyone saying that she was” the best”, she “hit it out of the park” and all the other cliches being thrown around. As far as speeches go it was ok not great. Just seemed like a typical speech by a wife backing her husband.

        • mnny

          I agree with the several comments above – Anne’s speech really isn’t going to make a difference. Yes, she was great for those who plan to vote for her husband. But those who can’t stand Romney, for whatever reasons, will not be swayed by her speech. Same holds true for the Dems. Those who already made up their mind to vote for Obama will say how wonderful Michelle Obama’s speech was at the DNC convention when she speaks next week, and will also say she hit it out of the park. But those who can’t stand Obama will not be swayed by anything Michelle says on his behalf.

          Bottom line is these conventions are only watched by political junkies like us. Same will hold true for the DNC convention next week. Those few undecided voters who will decide this election, don’t pay any attention to this stuff until the debates.

      Please do not type in all caps. It’s annoying. See item #11 in the Comment Policy.

      Also, websites have ads served on them for a very good reason. Most well-read blogs on the right have Democrat ads on them all the time. Come back tomorrow, and there will be some other ad on the page.

          Wow dude get a grip. You sound like a loon.

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          You can zoom in with your browser. Browsers are built with tools for the vision impaired.

          Has nothing to do with “political correctness.” That’s just bizarre.

          • wodiej

            Everyone is not politically savvy and I doubt many know you can zoom in w your browser-I certainly didn’t and am no beginner on a PC. I have a friend who is very intelligent who did not realize you can speed up or slow down the mouse/touch pad.

            Give the guy a break. I don’t blame him for being upset. I understand websites have to have ads but it seems having Democrat ones is an attempt to make money without principle at any cost.

            • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

              How was I not “giving him a break”? I gave him some advice on zooming. I fixed his second, all caps post, because I’m helpful like that, and I didn’t delete any of it or ban him.

              Ads are served by ad placement businesses. You can try to exert some control over them, but in the end, it’s a fair playing field, and you have to accept some ads will pop up that are not in accord with the mindset of the site or it’s readers.

              Besides, we aren’t into censorship on the right, are we? Let’s let Obama pay to keep blogs on the right up and running. At least he’s using Campaign cash to do it, and not spending our money for a change.

  • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

    Hey, Stacy McCain has the text of Ann Romney’s speech up on his site.

    I love being able to read speeches because I’m bandwidth challenged here at the Boogie Southern Compound.

    (double posted)

  • JD Olson

    Yes, yes, lovely, classy, well-spoken, nice dress, what you’d expect from any well-intentioned wife. Now she starts to speak TO YOU. No one missed it, especially the women in the audience. Did you see their faces? They could not have been listening more intently and thinking more intently about what her words meant. Then, “He will not fail!” Boom! That was a subterranean nuclear missile that just reached it’s target. This is how the truth feels when it is spoken without hesitation. I was not so much for the Mitt before. Now I know, he will not fail.

  • http://www.facebook.com/nadia.y.gonzalez.crawford Nadia Y. Crawford

    She is simply Amazing!!! We are blessed to have her as our future first lady. :)

  • BikerHoop

    WOW!! ‘Nuff said.

  • wodiej

    Very good!

  • M_J_S

    Okay people, lets not salivate all over the place. The Romney’s ARE NOT CONSERVATIVES, they are liberal Republicans and we have to hold their feet to the fire when they get elected. Lets not forget the Bush family who brought us Obama and “B.J. Clinton”.

    I’m sick of the Romney worship as if he’s some new Reagan. Romney will never be a great President because he is not a Conservative-PERIOD. Sure, next to Obama he looks like George Washington, but that doesn’t make Romney George Washington.

    He still seems to think local tyrannical government (RomneyCare) is okay, raising fees (taxes) is okay, has particularly liberal stances on abortion and gay “marriage”, bashing Conservatives behind the scenes, etc, etc, etc.

    Get him in there to replace Obama and then replace Romney.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/6TFSBPXVSCDIMIGDESK63L4VKY Michael

      This is another diatribe….get over it already….build the perfect person sir and then run it for office….no Mitt is not the perfect conservative but this mantra is getting old…yes we need to keep him on the right path but get over your pouting and whining and grow up!

      • M_J_S

        You kiss my butt drone. We’re not taking about perfect people, we’re taking about reality. I have already stated I will vote for Romney, but get over your delusions on who this guy is.

        “not the perfect Conservative” HE IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE.

        You grow up and educate yourself and worship Mittens elsewhere.

    • Trust1TG

      Agreed – the only positive about Mitt Romney is not his wife, it’s his selection of the only adult and credible conservative in the race, Paul Ryan, for VP.

      I have NOT forgotten Romney’s leftist liberal governorship record and his ruthless dishonest business tactics and Alinsky political tactics and his eight lies (at least) during the FL primary debate. I’m no fan of Romney or his wife, except for their strong stable marriage.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      MJS, I understand your feelings – we are birds of a feather – but give credit where it’s due, that was an awesome speech!

  • Trust1TG

    Mitt is not a conservative. He has no conservative record at all.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Wow, that was an awesome speech! She would make an amazing first lady!

  • Lee

    The First Lady of any nation should stand beside, and at times, behind her husband. Never in front of him. Ann Romney is just such a woman. I think she will make a terrific First Lady.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/H3FKUGAPVG6CDFYSCJHSAIAZW4 david r

    If one compares our conservative women to that of the liberal progressives, you will find that the conservative woman outclasses and is more dignified,then the liberal. And the proof is right here in this great video of class personified in Ann Romney the new and future 1st lady.

  • CG patriot

    Very impressive speech, Ann will make a fine First Lady.

    To say I’m turned off with Michelle and her scowling face and turned-up nose, is an understatement. How can a person who was handed the role of First Lady be so darn un-happy is beyond me. The perks this woman has and the privileges to do with what or what ever she so desires, yet still, she cannot muster-up a decent smile, or seemingly look happy at any event or the going’s on around her.

    Ann Romney will be a welcoming change.

  • Learnedsmtn2day

    Would have been a nice opener if she’d of started with “for the first time in my adult life”

    if this is the best speech of the night then Republicans really are stupid.

  • http://www.facebook.com/roxamme.regan Roxamme Regan

    Not only was her speech not great, it was all about her. She didn’t mention her husband on how he could be a good President. She wanted us to trust what she said about him. Why would we do that. I don’t find her particularly smart or informative on the issues. She spoke from a scripted speech that made little sense. Interviews that followed with her were sharply criticized. She sounded condescending and not bright. This was clearly now a WOW moment from her on behalf of her husband. Because of all the inept speakers the Republican campaign had, she probably sounded great, but it was done only by comparison. Of course, there is nothing more to say about the stupidity of a speech given by Clint Eastman. What a fool that man was.
