FULL SPEECH: Watch Romney speak in Irwin, Pennsylvania

Romney gave a fantastic speech today in Irwin, Pennsylvania that even earned him kudos from Michelle Malkin:



I’ve pulled a 10 minute clip from the speech that starts with Romney’s attack on Obama’s “you didn’t build it yourself” comments, and below that is the full speech that includes how he plans on fixing the economy, in more detail than before.

You can tell that the black guy sitting behind him absolutely does not want to be there. He is an obama supporter and would like to put a bullet into Romney. Talk about obvious. His boss MADE him go to the rally. undoubtedly.

How can Obama still be polling higher than Romney? It’s beyond me how anyone, with a brain, can deny that when Obama goes off-script, his true nature is exposed. He honestly believes we aren’t an exceptional nation, to the point of intentionally driving us under. Was that his plan all along?

– When the only thing Obama has to run on is Romney’s success; they are in serious trouble.

– When the liberal media (paid propagandanista) and progressives (disinformation specialists) rush into forums to defend and explain “what Obama really meant to say”; they are in serious trouble.

– When you compare what Obama promised to do four years ago, to what he actually did; they are in serious trouble.

Conclusion: They are in serious trouble!

and btw, he did get Binladen and it’s Bush’s fault… still… in 2015 too!

A vote for anyone other than Mitt would be a vote for Obama. I’m starting to like Mitt and especially the fact that he is not a career politician.

Thanks for your affirmation of my comments … glad you saw those two guys as I did smile I am not sure they will wake up, but maybe if the two of us keep pointing out what the left actually looks like in real life, people will be less likely to vote for Mr. O.

too bad that the only person not cheering is the black man behind Romney. when everyone stood up and clapped, he didn’t. Why did he bother going if he wants to stay where he is. Want to know why Obama didn’t go to the NAACP, but snubbed them and sent Biden? Because the fact that they invited Romeny to speak, was too much for his narcisstic ego. WHat do you think a man with this attitude will do if you disagree with him? Does Stalin, Mussolini or Hitler come to mind? They would sooner go back to the plantation than realize that Obama is a liar and a fraud. When Obama is finished demolishing the middle class, then it will only be the Goldman Sachs thugs and the rest of us. Who do you think Obama will be with? What people don’t realize is that Small businesses encompass, dry cleaners,… Read more »

The voting base of the DNC is based on a false support of the welfare class, and a belief in the looking glass response of “thou art the fairest in the land” (you ugly hag!)

Waking up the empoverished isn’t in their best interest. They rely on the arrogant “smarter than thou” educated (they believe) class, Hollywood narcissists (have millions yet pat themselves on the back when they raise $50k from little people for little people) and the welfare class. They should get a medal for unexceptionalism.

I think 25 to vote would be more appropriate. If you old enough for your car insurance to come down a little and you’ve been paying taxes a little, you have a lot more sense of what it means to live in the real world.

Wow!! I’m impressed!! I didn’t watch the full speech but the partial was a dandy. This is the way I want our President to talk. VERY pro-American and focused heavily on our exceptionalism because of ingenuity, hard work and risk in an effort to better oneself.

That statement Obama made is the most damaging statement I think I’ve ever heard. It was repulsive and revealing. Obama is allowing his views to start to come to light. His campaign managers have to be thinking about quiting. I can see them saying….

“Shut up, Obama! SHUT….UP!!! We have the teleprompter so the masses do not see your extreme idiology. If you veer away from it again, I’m going to shove all of my pencils up your…..!!!!”

I guess he hired two very experienced conservatives yesterday to run his campaign. Sununu did say it takes discipline to run a successful campaign. I think we might see it get more aggressive later on. Hopefully a lot more aggressive.

People its time to rise up! Mitt Romney might not be the be all end all candidate that you want but this man believes in american exceptionalism Be proud of what work you provide in this world! That while the government should support but those should not depend on it! The man in office right now wants you to depend on the government to provide you a life and want to take more and more from you to provide for those that need it! Sorry brother, but that type of government does work anymore. Folk let get out there and vote for Mitt Romney! This country needs him! Not a community organizer!

Compare the way Romney and Obama talk. They have a completely different view of America, a different view on what makes America tick, and they don’t sound anything alike. Yet there are still some conservatives here that claim they are identical.

Yeah, sure they are….and I ran 175 miles this morning before breakfast.

Sorry, I just finished watching his speech. I know that when he talks about our freedoms coming from God, His god is not the God of scriptures. Mormonism has been working for 180 years to finally become a main stream denomination and I for one will, till my dying day, do all in my power to pray for them all to come to true repentance and declare the God is not Adam and one of his wives.

Our freedoms will erode even more under Mitt. And you guys think it has been bad under Obama. just wait

I look out into my garden and see all the beautiful flowers. You know? The thought never occurs to me, “Which is God’s favorite flower?”

I see all the pretty colors and, once again, the thought never occurs to me to say “Which is God’s favorite color?”

Because, personally … I don’t speak for God.

But, I can tell you mine, though….

Hocus pocus. You’re against his religion so you carry that over to his character and his supposed actions you say he will take. If he was muslim I would agree, but Romney doesn’t bring his religion to work with him….unlike big mouth Santorum.

Mr. Farris, I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon church. I am afraid that you have been misinformed as to what Mormons believe in reference to God. I firmly believe in God the Eternal Father, in His Son who is Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. Mormons do in fact believe in the God of the Holy Bible. We use the King James version of the Holy Bible. We believe that the Book of Mormon is another Testament (or witness) of Jesus Christ. If you want to know more about what Mormons actually believe please find out for yourself. Many legitimate sources are available. You could read the Book of Mormon. You could contact the missionaries. You could talk to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You could attend a Sacrament meeting… Read more »

Pursuing OUR dreams has become ALMOST impossible. I am tired of the welfare handouts to people who CAN work; but, CHOOSE NOT to work…mostly, I am sick of government cronies who get in OFFICE and blow our tax dollars!! I think we should be able to stone them in the Town Square for all to see!!

I’d settle for prison. I also get tired of the people who have ten kids and they make minimum wage (or they don’t work at all). That is an extreme lack of responsibilty and I’m sick of government covering their sorry asses. If you don’t know what a condom is or your intentionally “earning” a monthly check for the next 18 years, you need to be sterilized.

Carry on, Mitt. Never give in to the game that Soetoros/Obama and his supporters are playing. America needs a real leader, not a weak undermining individual determined to destroy America. You’re doing good so far, don’t give in to the political games played by the liberals. Hold Strong!

“This election is to a great degree about the sole of America. Do we believe in an America that is great because of Government? Or, do we believe we are great because free people are allowed to pursue their dreams and bulid their future?” –Mitt Romney July 17, 2012

That is so good, I wish I had said it. It is exactly what I think.

Thank you Mitt. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Wow, that was the best speech I’ve ever heard him give.

I hope he actually does those things and acts like he really believes all that when he is president. (Yes, yes, I am voting for him; I am just bracing myself for the inevitable disappointment when his spine turns to linguini and he squishes). Even as a squish, he is a million times better than zero.

If you want to see more of this side of Romney, go to his campaign site and use the contact feature, let them know what you expect, what kind of fight you want to see in a candidate. Hold his feet to the fire and let him know that if he wants your vote, you want him focused on pressing the attack, no more playing defense. Make it known to him and his staff the issues that are important to you and your family. He wasn’t my first choice, but he is what we have to work with, so let’s work on him. If there was one thing The Corps taught me it was you make the best use of the weapons at your disposal. Quit the petty bickering and fight, damnit, FIGHT! Or you can kiss your country good bye………

Obama got elected because he was black-nothing else-he offered nothing, his hands were empty-his experience with living and growing and breathing American ideals was absolutely zero-he was the first black president-that was historical.

Mitt Romney understands American values, ideals, hard work, sacrifice and morals-he isn’t perfect, but NOONE will ever be-Obama needs to go in November-we need to start with that.
