Romney's Speech at the Global Initiative Conference

I just watched Romney's speech at the Global Initiative Conference and I was blown away. Foreign aid should be tied to getting people employment. All free enterprise - all the time. It was impressive. He even got a few digs in about Obama. It is a must see.

We don’t have the money for foreign aid let alone to employ people overseas.

Watched it too and thought it was a good approach to start the conversation.

Didn’t look like he was using a TelePrompTer either. Based on this Romney should have no problem wiping the floor with Obama in the debates.

I think he hit a home run.
A good indicator was the follow ups on the MSM stations which I tried to check out best I could with 1 TV.
CNN’s critique was decent.Up Chuck Todd,blew the whole thing off and gave it zip which indicated to me it was better than I thought.
As stated before Mit R will wipe the floor with the current WH Occupier.
The MSM is prepping for this already proven by their reporting that Obama hasnt been debating much but Mit has because he has been running for president for so long and a bunch of other poor excuses.

Meh. More bi-partisan (read liberal) glad handing in the name of globalism featuring the usual suspects.

Was very impressed with his speach and with WJC introduction.

I’m sure you loved the great praise he heaped on City Year.

Clinton introduced him with glowing words.

So how does the MSM dare contradict clinton’s praise of Romney’s accomplishments? Was this a poison dart from clinton to obama?

Sounded like it to me, considering clinton made such a splash at the convention. The “great and magnificent” bill clinton has spoken and the MSM basically told Mitt it’s all over but the crying.

Now what!! LOL.

I didn’t see this particular speech, but it sounds very much like what he’s been saying out on the stump for many months now. Romney was not my first choice, but I’ll be darned if his speeches aren’t downright patriotic. Compare that to Obama’s long list of apologies. The differences in how each man feels about America are quite stark.

If you didn’t see it... you owe it to yourself. I was not for Romney either but am praying I was WRONG.

I still have my “W stands for Women” poster!

I thought Romney’s speech was terrific. He was very much at ease, believed what he was saying. Unlike Obama’s wooden, monotone delivery; he saves his animation for the baloney of his campaign speeches. Romney was extremely comfortable in his own skin and had a great message. There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s a man of vision. It’s time for Obama to hit the nightclub-talk show-golf-party circuit where he’s more at home—fulltime; he’s moe than halfway there already. He’s been over his head from day one!

Thank you for the link, onyx! Now I can send it to everyone. This was a great speech—very Presidential! I thought it was just terrific. Couldn’t drag my husband away from reading yesterday’s news in today’s paper but he will watch it here.

Hiya GoldwaterChick!!!

So good to see you! I was happy to find it in C-SPAN’S Library because I missed it LIVE. Like you, I sent the link to one of my son’s in CA.

One good thing happening these days is that Obama can’t keep his foot out of his mouth. He is in dire need of a pocket sized teleprompter.

“bumps in the road”

“eye candy”

Sheesh.....I could have written his responses for him : )

So we are going to pay other countries to open their markets in hopes of putting their people to work. Meanwhile lowering our own tariffs has put 25% of our people out of work.

This is exactly why today’s article saying people trusted Obama more than Romney to fix the economy actually has some credibility.

Both candidates are clueless.

Uh, no.

1) Romney will attempt to fix our economy.

2) Obama is furiously trying to destroy the middle class.

Yes with the wrong prescriptions. More free trade with countries with excess cheap labor isn't going to put people in the U.S. back to work. Cutting people's safety net, before you address the structural issues in the economy is going to make things worse not better. And I don't think he is very serious on energy when he calls for a 2 year approval process for existing site additional nuclear reactors.

"2) Obama is furiously trying to destroy the middle class.

I don't think he is. It's just Obama is just as clueless as Romney. And he wasted the stimulus funds on crony capitalism and government jobs instead of things that would help.

At least Obama hasn't made any free trade deals. Doing nothing is better than moving forward in the wrong direction.

” I don’t think he is. It’s just Obama is just as clueless as Romney.”

I guess we will have to agree to disagree. It isn’t about cluelessness with Obama, it is about carefully planned evil intent. Right now, I would give Obama an A + on destroying the economy.

He’s doing fewer and fewer “talks” without the tele. Is there something wrong? Too many drugs? A brain injury acting up? (scare)
Already talks about the debate. That they are giving him the questions ahead of time.....Sounds to me like a “special needs” child’s IEP.

You know he’s a Jinnie’s Az!

thanks for providing the actual link, which w4women left out

I think for any President trying to say something about what good any kind of American foreign aid can do, Romney scored higher on some truths about it than anyone since Reagan

that said, my own belief is that he may be more hopeful and confident about what American foreign aid can achieve than is actually possible

the fact is that among the nations that were considered “3rd world” or “undeveloped” in the 1960s, those who were among the least per-capita recipients of foreign aid are among those whose economies have risen the most and those who were among the largest per-capita recipients of foreign aid have had the smallest levels of economic growth

in other words, foreign aid was not the most essential factor in moving 3rd world and undeveloped nations from poverty to economic growth

I think the biggest truth is that our example alone is enough and that doesn’t cost a dime

Thanks for the ping, onyx!

That was a very good speech and no teleprompter from what I could see.
