Tonight Ann Romney talked with audience members in New Hampshire as the results of the primaries came in with her husband sweeping all five states. She spoke with a passion as if she and the audience were at a kitchen table or sitting on a couch in some ones living room.
With a smile from ear to ear, Ann began with “WOW” continuing with “it’s good to be back here” as the crowd roared at every word spoken. She told the story why the Romney family set out just over a year ago talking about this campaign in their living room stating “and I was hesitant” knowing they went through a tough primary four years ago.
Mrs. Romney standing at the podium with the message across the front “A Better America Begins Tonight” she told the room full of supporters she was emphatic that would be the last Presidential Campaign they would be involved in. She spoke at the Radisson Hotel in Downtown Manchester nervous at moments as her message was sent out.
With watery eyes Ann told the crowd she was reminded by her husband of 43 years that “I said that after every pregnancy”. Ann continued “but I knew our country was in real trouble, I knew our country needed real leadership to turn these things around so I asked Mitt one simple question, can you fix it? He said yes and that’s all I needed to know. I said, I said if you can fix it, we need to do this.”
As she introduced her husband Mitt Romney the crowd went wild with enthusiasm, cheering and clapping as he walked up to the microphone to thank all those who help win these primaries. As he spoke he half heartedly smiled as is his pattern thanking not only those who voted but he went on “and tonight I can also say, thank you America, because after 43 primaries and caucuses, many long days and more than a few long nights I can say with confidence and gratitude that you have given me a great honor and solemn responsibility and together we are going to win on November 6th.”
Mitt talked about the weak leadership in this nation. He talked about the “mom and dad” on food stamps for the first time in their lives. He talked about business owners who had to cut back in order to keep their doors open. His message to America is this “hold on a little longer, a better America begins tonight”.
Above the crowds yells and screams “go Mitt go”, he continued “the last few years have been the best that Barack Obama could do, but it is not the best America can do. Tonight is the beginning of the end of the disappointments of the Obama years and it’s the start of the new and better chapter we will write together.”
Many citizens may not agree Mitt can fix this country, however after three years of the promises from Obama many individuals are worst off today then they were when he took office. Under the Obama administration our debt has risen, our unemployment has risen, our foreclosure rate has risen and our chances to advance at our workplace has diminished.
The issues we face today are far greater than the ones from four years ago.The message from the Republican establishment is simple, Mitt is the man. From others outside the beltway the message from conservatives is, vote for anyone but Obama. Will Americans rally behind Mitt or will they remain split and campaign for the candidate they believe in such as Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul?”
This election is about freedom and a less intrusive government. This election is about doing what is right for the country once again. Can Mitt fix it, if elected we hope so.
