      What a fabulous speech…my opinion, the best one I’ve heard. I know that there must be a ton of others that he has given but this is the best I’ve heard.

      Go Mitt and lets take back our country !!!

  • LIBERTYUSA

    …thanks RS !”

    • marketcomp

      They are the best!

    • smmy33

      I hope someone on the Romney camp is reading this…..Please tell him to stop slicking his hair back… He looking really good natural and younger amd less like a pol, without the gel… And doesn’t look like a slick businessman … Been months now I wanted to write about his hair… vain and superficial I know.. but then when your running against Obama the vain and superficial are the standard the media judges the election by.

      • poljunkie

        email him.

      • A_Truism

        Priorities, right? Teehehehehe…Just teasing. I love Mrs Romney’s fashion style.

      • wodiej

        He may have “unruly” hair and that is why he “slicks” it back.

      • canscrap

        haha…. he’s not trying to be eye-candy.

        • Orangeone

          He doesn’t need to be. He is naturally attractive and so are Ann and his children.

  • opinionatedhermit

    “And, we’re going to build that pipeline from Canada, if I have to do it myself.”
    -Mitt Romney

    LOL!!!

    That is great!!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rich-Wojcik/1252071956 Rich Wojcik

      don’t forget Romney’s:
      “I have 5 boys and I have heard all the excuses, prevarications, half-truths and YES, lies like yours” – I am quoting not verbatim, but that was between the lines.
      ………………………………………………………
      Like a punch in the kisser. I was seeing that punch “verbatim” ;)
      Both FuBar Ack’s grey cells had frozen. Arrogance to the nth power.

    • BlueGood

      Romney will get votes from CANADA with that commitment!

  • Frank D’Ascoli

    Awesome Speech Mitt

  • WordsFailMe

    Mitt made 63 phone calls to parents of soldiers on a Memorial day.

    I wonder if Obama or his wife or mother or anyone carry that poisoned blood have ever made a Memorial Day phone call? “All that for a flag,” you foul pig of a woman.

    GM is alive and Osama is dead, and so is Brian Terry and Ambassador Stevens and three more Americans….

    • Orangeone

      And ICE agent Jamie Zapata.

  • JohnBarry2012

    Saw tears in his eyes when Mitt talked about the patriots, he speaks better through his heart than his usual cool and logical sound mind. Good to see the compassionate side of Romney came through which resonated with the crowd. Mist in my eyes as I listen to him.

  • JohnBarry2012

    Talk about opening up energy source in Alaska, who would be a more pragmatic and ideal Energy Secretary Sarah Palin to replace that clueless Dr. Stephen Chu.

    • Orangeone

      Absolutely perfect appointment for Sarah Palin.

      • spottedreptile

        I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin, and to be honest I wanted her to be the candidate but for whatever reasons (and I am sure they were good ones) she declined to run. I wasn’t happy with Mitt as the choice, but he has really surprised and delighted me of late. He seems to have found himself, not being one of many candidates, but being the nominee, has energised him and awoken a passion in his soul and belly which is great to watch. I am glad to say he is a great choice for President.

        I also cannot think of a better Energy Sec than Palin. And Bolton for SoS. Ryan as VP.

        Smart, talented, experienced, energised and dedicated people. Good cabinet so far!

        • Orangeone

          Love Bolton for SoS.  Allen West for Sec of Defense. What about a post for John Sununu?  And what are thoughts about either Judge Napalitano or Judge Jeanine Pirro for Attorney General?

      • jjsmntha

        I definitely agree. She would be perfect part of the “dream team.”

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Celeste-Christi/100000108380286 Celeste Christi

      I thought the same thing. Palin for Energy Secretary. Perfect.

      • Michael Shepard

        Gas prices would drop faster than poop in a punchbowl…… Mitt Romney made a quick comment during the debates, at about the 20 minute mark, that I thought might have rattled Obama worse than anything else; ole’ Jim kind of called a time-out, & was explaining to Barry & Mitt that the first segment went a little to long, & they needed to snap it up…Romney paused, looked at him, & said, “Yeah,but, it’s fun, isn’t it!” At first,I didn’t believe what I heard…I thought: This guy is right where he wants to be,doing just whats to do,when he was ready to do it. It’s like he knew that he would be here, doing exactly what he was doing. Cool as the bottom of the pillow.

        • spottedreptile

          I heard that comment and I laughed because I think Mitt knew Barry was having anything but fun at that point, and he just wanted to play him a bit more. He’s a gentleman, but he can stick the knife in when he needs to.

      You are a sharp observer, writer and patriot, Caos my friend. I thank you

        Can you imagine how scary it is to realize he must act this same way around Putin, Chavez, and all the other kings and tyrants he meets with and bows to. If we see weakness then the predatory masterminds who live in power by fear must see and revel in it. No wonder no one takes us serious or fears the US. I miss the days of Reagan and Bush when we could make tyrants go weak in the knees in the face of our determined and forceful leaders, a determined people, and a military that is 2nd to NO ONE!! Those days must come back or this great experiment of freedom started over 200 years ago will fade into ruin and dust just as the Spartans, Greeks, Romans, & British. Never to rise again!! ABO!! R&R 2012!!!

        But do not be fooled…the powers behind Obama are VERY powerful…Obama is just a puppet..he sold himself do the “devil” for power! Muslim Brotherhood, Chavez, Communist Party, Soros and ect. Oh and I forget Valerie Jarred..she was born in IRAN she is closer to Obama than I would say his wife..she is the adviser behind Obama BIG time! She is in all his pictures in the background in many group pictures! Look up her name~!

    DNC cheating continues:
    NEWS:
    WINDFALL: OBAMA RAISES $181 MILLION, ONLY AROUND 2% OF DONATIONS REPORTABLE
    ___________________________________
    Kickbacks from Chavez, Kenia, etc…………………..???

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Celeste-Christi/100000108380286 Celeste Christi

      Part of the $450 Million he sent to Morsi after Egyptians attacked our embassy. Re-routed through prepaid credit cards.

    • hbnolikeee

      I’ll bet that the 98% of the donations that are not reportable were also not “whole” numbers. That implies to me foreign money exchange rates… if you get my drift.

    Scoop, any pictures or word on the crowd size at his Florida speech?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002997192223 Deborah Clemence

      They have reported 3,000…. but I don’t know if it was inside or outdoors.

      • Orangeone

        Very loud crowd, sounds like much more than 3,000

      Hi I was at the Rally with my son.It was amazing.It was held outdoors at a Sports Complex.I’m guessing the crowd to be at least 5,000.It seats about 1,000 near the amphitheater stage and room for another 5,500 on the grass.So my guess could be off… it may be higher! Fantastic speech tho! I have to admit a couple of times I had tears in my eyes.Glad I made this rally I couldn’t make the one in St.Pete.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AQL44D6ZYDWZFFEUHUB6OSAJ2Q Brian

    Palin had 60,000 in Florida, any word on Mitt letting her join him?

    • conservocop

      Great idea. The path has been cleared with the galvanizing effect of the debate. The GOP base is rallying to Mitt’s side now, and it is awesome.

    • wodiej

      Romney is on a roll. Some Gov. Palin mixed in there might set the state on fire-wow!

  • Michael Shepard

    This guy is getting better EVERY day….

    • Mtncougar

      I think he’s evolved (saw the same change you did!)

  • MrMicawber

    His ability to connect is getting amazing – get the feeling I’m watching the day-by-day emergence of a great leader.

  • Malkiel_kol_hakavod_la_el

    Good speech.. And I believe we that love our country and it’s Republican form of Government way out number the socialist and just plain politically dumb and I believe we are going take our country back from those who with malice and forethought are destroying her from within…. So let us arise to this time in history and save her from the socialist and politically dumb…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Andrew-Alaniz/1698789104 Michael Andrew Alaniz

    Scoop, I sent your a couple of links of the crowd sizes from Mitt’s body man, he shared them on twitter with us.

  • scrubjay

    It was a very interesting speech. Half was what you would expect from a stump speech — policy, issues, programs. The rest was about himself as a person. That was excellent. It was the counter to Obama’s “where was the ‘real’ Romney?” line.

    • Orangeone

      I would love to see some of the 63 families in an ad.

  • loriannringold

    The great thing is that I “REALLY” believe what they say. I trust this MAN when he says he wants to help all Americans. Go Romney. I do not believe our current President and that makes me feel uncomfortable as an American. Our Republic deserves so much better and Mitt Romeny is the man for this time.

    Just got back, Ampitheater holds 10,000. Overflow crowd, the RsVP’s for event 14,000, probably closer to that number. People as far as the eye could see. Romney looked good and the crowd responded well to his speech.

          ABinC, wanna work for me after R Squared takes office? As a small business owner, I’ll be looking to hire when I have confidence in our country’s leadership, economic policies, national security and the O’BambiTaxCare off of my back!

            I’d love to Orangeone, but I’ve got my hands full over here already (unpaid mom and teacher position lol). I hope you can get more business once again though!!! Thanks for the offer though my friend! :-)

        • Orangeone

          ABinC, is there a way to exchange email address with a fellow blogger without posting?

          • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

            The way I’ve done it in the past Orangeone, is if the person has the e mail alerts and they know you’ve posted a response, go to an older thread that’s still open, comment to the person and include your e mail. Then after about 10 minutes, go ahead and edit it out, so no one else will see it except the person who will have got it in an e mail alert. :-D

        You are a very sad person if you truly believe that Obama is the way to go. You will have less than nothing if he wins a second term and you poor white girl, will wish you had smartened up before he destroyed our country which is what he will do.

      • Orangeone

        Did you finish high school or do the alternative, get pregnant and life off of welfare. You made those choices yourself and need to look in the mirror to see who is responsible.

      • WordsFailMe

        Are you as simple as you appear? That’s quite an accomplishment.

  • Charm4sure

    Can he start as POTUS tonite?

    • Orangeone

      How about retroactively???

  • loriannringold

    Romney is right. I just graduated in August with a degree in Accounting and I still cannot find a job. Before Obama, I could have had a job that paid enough to help my family, but now there are no jobs around that will afford me the opportunity to be able to make a good profit after $240 a week in daycare. If I had my choice, I would work from home but there are so many people looking, it is hard as a new graduate to compete. I remember when there were companies anxious for new graduates. Now, people with experience has the upper hand. I am so discouraged.

    • freenca

      Try not to lose heart loriann. The light is beginning to shine and there will be a better day soon.

      • loriannringold

        Hi Freenca
        Thank you for the kind words. While I have not lost all confidence. it is a bit discouraging. But, like yesterday and the day before, I will continue to look for something.

    Thank you for posting. One of his very best. Loved the emphasis on the Military and its contributions. Got rather misty-eyed with the talk of his phone calls and his old classmate…a truly good man.

    • MrMicawber

      There were a couple of moments where I thought emotion was about to overwhelm him. The contrast with Obama could not run deeper.

  • poljunkie

    Gov Romney has vastly improved and is connecting with the crowd. He has hit his stride, and with any luck he’ll travel down this path over the finish line. I don’t know if he has evolved so much, or if it is that we are so hungry for a new leader that we can have faith in that he appears better.
    We have to win this. For our piece of mind, for our children, and for the sake of our great Nation.

      Hope you just ignore the foul-mouthed troll below. It’s comment has been flagged.

      I agree that MR hasn’t evolved much – he is what he always has been, a good man, candidate or not. It may be that because we’ve learned more about his compassionate actions and help towards others, we’re the ones who are evolving.

      I won’t risk the wrath of the mods by reposting it all here, but Wodiej had a great run-down on MR yesterday, here:
      http://www.therightscoop.com/friday-open-thread-
      dog-tracks-down-hospitalized-owner-more-than-2-miles-away-to-pay-visit/

      The beginning shows that he is indisputably a better man, even tho’ we wish there was more evidence of conservatism in his past:
      “Why Romney is so Unlikable.
      Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:

      1. Gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting’s #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.

      2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

      3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)

      4. Can’t speak in a fake, southern, “black preacher voice” when necessary.

      5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laud from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School…and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

      6. Doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today’s America?

      7. Represents an America of “yesterday”, where people believed in God, went to church, didn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

      8. Has a family of five great sons….and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that “choice” deserves America’s scorn.

      9. Oh yes…..he’s a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

      10. And one more point…..pundits say because of his wealth, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that’s because he made that money HIMSELF…..as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad.
      Apparently, he didn’t understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unable to relate to average Americans. My goodness, it’s a strange world, isn’t it?”

      There’s more, very highly recommended, but when we compare MR to BHO, there’s no doubt in my mind as to who is the better human being.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Celeste-Christi/100000108380286 Celeste Christi

        As for being Mormon I’ve known a few as neighbors. There are no better neighbors on earth. Seriously. You could knock on the door of a Mormon home in the middle of the night, whether you know them or not, and they will do everything they can to help you. I get that same feeling from Mitt and Ann.

His personal life stories made him a real person. I love his compassion and his zeal for America. He shows so much love for the country. I love that he respects the military and took a little time to recognize and thank them. God bless you!

    • wodiej

      You read my mind. After watching this I was literally speechless and blown away. God bless Romney/Ryan, their families and God Bless America.

      • LastMomStanding

        Amen! May God place His protection over both of them, their families and staff. May He guide them, offer His wisdom and continued blessings upon Mitt, Paul Ryan and upon America.
        In Jesus’ name.

      He needs to insert one or two briefly into every debate. With 70 million watching, he will connect and communicate his true self to many.

    I WAS HERE THIS EVENING!! IT ROCKED…..second time I have met Mitt…he remembered me from the the last fundraiser. I told him how much so many people were charged and jazzed after the debate!! He was as well. Mitt look so renewed and he was rocking. The placed was PACKED….I was there a few hours early and the lines HOLY COW!! I could not tell you how many but in the thousands and thousands…the traffic was HORRIBLE! BUT WELL WORTH IT!! He is just a humble man when you met him. His memory is excellent and his wife is a CLASS ACT!! She remembered me as well and personally thanked me for all the support and donations.

    I wish more of the people from TRS could actually met this man and his family. I tell you when you get up close and speak with them any wonder about this man’s love of America would vanish!! He is just fantastic with kids. To me that cracks me up….so many people try to protray this man like some out of touch money cruncher….it is so untrue….his grandkids are all over the man and he loves talkind to the little ones. To me I that MATTERS!! That is humility. And to me subjected to the hate and nastiness that this man has taken just bothers me!

    But to my fellow TRS this event rocked….his speech was fantastic, the mood electrified and the turnout was UNBELIEVABLE….Mitt is coming into his own at the perfect time and the crowds are responding big time. Local News outlets were everywhere and I mean from all over Central Florida. THIS WAS A BLAST!!

    Again the crowd was massive!! and the feeling was sensational!!

    • anotherworriedmom

      Thank you for telling us about the event. I live in Ga. It’s a red state. A very red state. I get it that Gov Romney has to go to the swing states. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be at the rallies. I wish that everyone that goes to a rally would take pictures of the crowd. I keep hearing about the polls and I’m disappointed. But knowing that there are a lot of people at the rallies makes me feel better. So, keep us informed. As Breitbart put it: we are all journalists now! Post the pictures. Show us the enthusiasm. We really want to know!!

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

        The polls are already changing worriedmom…and you need to remember the polls before the debate were so skewed it was embarrassing. You need to stop citing them. Have you not noticed from from CNN to Reuters all those Pollsters are starting to readjust their samples? Those samples you cite were done to make people like you get nervous and down. In other words, to psyche you out. I think it is time to put them to rest and learn to BELIEVE!!!

        • anotherworriedmom

          Hi Michael. Trust me, I do believe!! I am more worried about the people that don’t follow what’s going on as closely as we do. I want them to be able to see the national enthusiasm for R&R. The MSM has decided that 15,000 people at an R&R rally in FL or VA is not worth reporting. So we will have to be the reporters to make sure that it gets out. AmericanThinker.com recently added a “Video” section. I encourage everyone that attends an R&R rally (or any R rally) to take videos and send them to AT. That way we can all see!!

        Me too. I’ve heard California is calling for Mitt to come and campaign. I smell trouble for O’Bambi….

    He is a diffrent man since he whooped Obama’s ass at the debate.

    • Orangeone

      I don’t hear any young voters saying Mitt needs to use a teleprompter either. Scary generation that needs all the answers before they are asked a question.

  • http://www.facebook.com/tanyanant.hunsaker Tanyanant Saomoke Hunsaker

    He made 63 phone calls to the soldiers’ families. Obama sent form letters to seals’ families… enough said.

      O’Bambi went on Letterman when Stevens’ body arrived covered with our flag!

    Romney and Ann look at each other after 40 years like Newlyweds. What a beautiful couple

    • Orangeone

      Well said. And they and their children will be great role models for our youth. Marriage can and does last, you need to be prepared, honest and loving.

  • joyfulgiver

    Required viewing for EVERY American! I’m going to be passing this link on to my entire email list. Simply an amazing testimony to the human spirit. It’s so refreshing to see someone that can express himself from the heart (with out a teleprompter). When you are speaking the truth, the words flow naturally and eloquently. Praise God for Mitt’s desire to restore America to the greatest Nation on Earth.

    Praying Psalm 18:2-3 for Mitt, Paul and their families and all the people working with them.

    “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies.”

    The Lord alone is able to save America from our enemies. Trust in His strength and wisdom to guide America on the best path. And, may that path be blessed with the leadership of these two great men. Rise up America!

    • wodiej

      Amen to that!

    From a thread at FreeRepublic, I saw this pic of the rally. Nice sunset,panorama. Looks like a packed event full of happy people. Scroll down for bigger pics. Looks like a great evening!

    (BTW, Stacy McCain reported that the rally last Thursday (the day after the debate) in Fisherville, Virginia was so packed, the cops wouldn’t even let in credentialed reporters because the audience size exceeded the fire code.)

    • Orangeone

      And O’Bambi has to PAY people to attend his and move to a significantly smaller stadium and have the cameras close in…..

  • DonkeyTalk

    Romney 1 Obama 0, 2 more debates left for Romney to show the clueless liberals up and solidify the 5% roughly 6,000,000 independents who the clear choice is. It’s pethetic that American independents can’t get the facts from the biased media or the Obama campaign, falsely characterizing the gov or calling him a liar like when obama just isn’t that bright without his TelePrompTer; that Romney has to due it while on live tv where CNN, the most fairly biased, can’t edit it. Voted for Obama once, next vote is romneys….

    • wodiej

      It’s pathetic that after 4 years of obama’s failures that they are still undecided!!

    • Orangeone

      Welcome to America’s side! Bring along your friends too so we can all work together to restore this great country.

    Look at Mitt’s face when Ann is talking. You can tell he deeply loves her!!!

  • canscrap

    I just finished listening to the entire speech and about half way into it when he got personal, I was choked up with emotion. I HATE how the media is trying (not sure if they are succeeding) to portray him. Those phony ads, Mitt doesn’t care, and he didn’t give his garbage man a hug (when he did do that job for a day) are sickening….
    I LOVE how he looks at the next First Lady….. It’s obvious how much he loves his family and this country.

  • CitizenVetUSA

    All pieces and parts of Romney’s life experience and the 2012 campaign culminate in a solid and smooth presentation of himself, our next President.

  • anneinarkansas

    Go Romney! Make your beautiful wife our next First LADY.

    I just can’t believe that 4 years ago that we nominated McCain when it should have been Mitt then. I learn more and more about Mitt Romney and he gives more hope and reminds me of the love for this country as Ronald Reagan did in his years leading our country. There is hope if he is our President.

    • Orangeone

      McCain was a veteran and that was an important factor to alot of people, including me. I also didn’t know enough about Mitt Romney. I still don’t like his amnesty position but I pray we take full control of Congress and prevent it from occurring.

      And he loves this country. He is a giver, not a taker (like the current regime). He wants to do his best to enable everyone to succeed (unlike the current regime).

    It’s so fantastic to listen to Mitt Romney talk about how he loves this country, Obama NEVER sounds like he loves this country, he only wants to change this country! The only change we need is to change presidents, Obama has failed miserably. Obamacare is going to ruin us, he claims it’s for the middle class, but Obamacare will hurt the middle class and seniors so much. Gas prices are killing businesses, truckers, etc, we need to use our sources for fuel, drilling in our country and stop letting the EPA run us, Obama is in the EPA pocket, that’s obvious. Mitt Romney has helped businesses, Romney/Ryan will get my vote, I’m 71 and if seniors continue to believe what Obama says, we will be hurting and lose so much in Medicare. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!! Mitt will get us back to smaller government, helping cut the regulations that are strangling small business, it’s time for a president that believes in us!!! We are weaker in the world, we need a strong leader to regain strength in the world. God Bless Mitt and Ann Romney, God Bless America!!!!!!

    The human interest stories that Mitt Romney talked about in this great speech in my state of Florida. Was of uncommon valor, sacrifice, compassion and love of country. These stories are ones I love to hear about, and gravitate to more because of how good it makes one feel. Most of us have had in our lives someone who has display attributes these people who have passed away have. The unbridled love for others in spite of themselves and circumstances are ones I admired and emulate. This is the true essence of the indomitable American spirit and optimism that the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States espoused 236yrs ago.

    precious Ann. This whole speech is heartening and outstanding. So tired of all the blathering by the existing resident in the Whitehouse– all his lies.

  • WordsFailMe

    The Chavez “victory” in Venezuela is going to make the ignorant, the slop-swillers, liberals and socialists in this country start to salivate like the traitorous Pavlov’s dogs that they are. Breeding like bacteria in a cesspool, the democrats out-number patriots in this country.

    At some Venezuelan polling places, the government slowed down the voting causing long lines. If that happens here, we are all in trouble. In some Venezuelan polling places,the people separated themselves into two lines, one for Chavez the other for the human. If that happens here, and you can be sure that there will be harassment at the polls, there needs to be people ready and willing to step up.

    I have promised myself that I will patrol the polling places in my area all day with a lethal coffee thermos, cell phone and a camera.
