Poll: Did Ann Romney change your view of Mitt Romney?
The New Orleans Times-Picayune ^ | August 28, 2012 | Lauren W. List

Posted on 08/28/2012 9:55:08 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, spoke to the Republican National Convention about the former Massachusetts governor not as a politician, but as a husband and father.

She told the crowd and a prime-time audience about their 43-year marriage, one of real struggles and experiences, including her battles with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer, and nothing of the storybook tale that people imagine. Ann Romney also talked about his role as a father to five sons, and grandfather to 18 grand-kids

The GOP hoped her speech would help undecided and other voters (especially women) better relate to Mitt Romney as an everyday man instead of a corporate and political insider...

Ann Romney proves Mitt has a lot better taste than Barack!

Nope. Not one iota. I liked her to be sure, but that doesn’t change Romney’s crusade to destroy conservatism.

All but the ABR crowd on here, and the far moonbat left / MSM would have to admit her speech was awesome and likely gave Mitt a nice boost.

Didn’t really change my view of Mitt, although I will vote for him. But it certainly changed my view of Ann. The kind of wife any man should be exceedingly proud to have.

Grassely was on FOX news tonight, talking about the polls. He explained that in 2008, Iowa had thousands more Democrats than Republicans and now there are more Republicans than Democrats, not in the same proportions, but still a huge difference. He said that it was the same all over the country.

Politics is secular.

Mormons, as a group are profoundly Conservative. pro-family, pro- industry ( both personal and collective)- they take care of their own, etc.

They are heretics with respect to Christendom.

Most “Christian” denominations are heretical these days too, what with homosexuality and ordaining women...

This is not an exercise in faith. The Cross and the Flag parted company aways back. This is about strengthening the things that remain, IMHO.

ABSOLUTELY!

I used to believe he was a lying, slimy, shallow weasel of a statist RINO empty-suit.

I now believe he is a lying, slimy, shallow weasel of a statist RINO empty-suit with a wife who can deliver a reasonably competent speech.

” The kind of wife any man should be exceedingly proud to have.”

Wellllllllll...following that logic......Mitt has that kind of wife......your next thought just HAS to be “maybe there’s more to this guy than meets the eye.” Well, doesn’t have to be, but pretty hard to avoid it.

I have several Democrats in my family with only one that would still vote for the Kenyan (if she was registered). She’s 82, watches only CNN and I think she still has white guilt. If you heard her talk about the illegals and taxes you would think she was a republican. I leave her alone because she’s old, she’s not going to vote and she’s the only mother I have.

So, maybe Isaac isn’t being all that bad to them, if they have the time to run this poll.

I gotta say, Hubby who likes nobody, LOVED Chris Christie. He actually said: wow, he’s OUR governor!

I saw Christie speak live at a little campaign rally last year (haha, it actually was a Little campaign rally, as it was for Anna Little) and he was by far the best speaker I’ve ever heard.

Juan Williams, even, actually said it: he makes you feel like he is speaking directly to you, personally. It’s really a great gift. He must be really good in the Courtroom.

Sometimes that weight helps you. I’m roughly his size and I’ve noticed over the years that most people don’t argue with you as much and usually listen (or at least pretend to) when you say something.

Ann was very impressive, and made me think if Mitt was smart enough to marry and hang on to such a person as Ann, perhaps there is more to him than I thought at first.

NO! I don’t need to listen to her to know that either as I didn’t. Listening to a pump speech from the godless is useless and a waste of my God-given time. I never listen the POS Obama or Michelle either. Garbage in, garbage out!

She did a great job though and she will be a great First Lady for America.

Ann Romney was adorable. She built a strong connection with those who heard her. She described a husband that millions of women dream about having and the fulfillment she received with a life that began with that first dance. The kisses afterward showed me that their love for each other is burning strong. Instead of being, as Juan Williams called her—the “corporate wife”—she was the good wife that we all dream about having. She is the wife that will make America be great again.

I have heard that from a couple other people already tonight. This was in the back of my mind, after she spoke. I think the female vote will start breaking for Romney. Well, the sane vote anyway. Good to hear.

They are heretics with respect to Christendom.

The godless have nothing to do with GOD - they are his enemy! As his pro abortion Romneycare and he initiating same sex marriage and personally marrying the perverts. Sodom and Gomorrah wasn't even that low - no one even thought that low of them getting married and God destroyed them and 'brought out/saved His own'.

Romney is the lowest of the low.

Most “Christian” denominations are heretical these days too, what with homosexuality and ordaining women...

Most? YOU must be in the wrong circle or right considering what you are gravitating towards. Seems you don't know a 'Christian' if you met one to consider those denominations Christians. They aren't heretics they are being what they are - godless!

This is not an exercise in faith.

The hell it isn't!! IT is a most important exercise of faith. If you can't stand for TRUTH now, you NEVER will!

When the heat is on, you crumble. Yet, when the heat was turned up 7 times - Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego NEVER BOWED to their king. That's the faith you don't want to hear about because you don't have it! That's the faith that saves!

The Cross and the Flag parted company aways back.

WOW! Separate the Cross from the flag, this nation will be just like you want - evil. WHO do you think made this nation great? You, politicians? Who do you think poured about His blessings on it? This nation would be like any other 3rd rate nation and it will be - one nation under evil. When they burn/destroy the flag what are YOU left with?

This is about strengthening the things that remain, IMHO

YOU can't strengthen anything in this country. You can't even strengthen your faith and that is totally in your control. Unless you belong to a cult, that is, then you are being obedient to bow to evil.

All there is left is a godless society with every evilness and bondage that it brings. Enjoy it - you voted for it.

. While the faithful ones will be enjoying all that the CROSS brings and for eternity. There is no evil in heaven for you to bow to.

No, but I think she did a good job considering what she had to work with. I do think she should have left out the complaints about not having a kitchen table. It reminded me that he didn’t have a job till he was 31 and she never had one even before having children. I guess it never occurred to them to work for what they wanted instead of waiting for daddies next check. I believe she once said that at that time things were so bad they had to cash in some of Mitts stocks.

She is an attractive woman and good speaker

When she chooses her issue, it won’t be telling our kids to eat spinach and do jumping jacks to earn her a Guinness World record while stuffing her own face with steak ice cream and lobsta and trotting around the gym in Jimmmy Choo kitten heels

He is still a stiff but gotta admit he WAS a hunk back then

The media harpies will now have their claws out for Ann Romney, she is a threat to all the wymyn’s issues they hold most dear: entitlement to taxpayer funded birth control, fetus slaughter, and sterilization, and activism against institutions of white male oppression like marriage church stay-home parenting and traditional 2 married parent families (oooh, hate speech)

Anne didn’t have a job but she was working more than 40 hours a week for her church. IIRC she ran all the charitable works of her church, something that took considerable skill and energy.

Even if you think Anne’s a slouch - imagine the reaction from Michelle to be displaced by a small, attractive, blonde!! I can’t wait!

I'm waiting to see if moochie stoops down to making direct comments about romney's wife. That's about all I'm really interested in seeing.

I'll vote romney despite all my previous vitriol against him.

When he's elected, we'll have a whole new fight on our hands. I'll take that mess any day over the current one.

Obama's a "scorched earth" guy if I ever saw one. He won't give up power willingly. This is going to be uglier than we can imagine.

I am not suggesting she is a slouch. Are you suggesting she has worked 40 hours a week, every week since she was in college for her Church? My comment was that it is hard to relate to a couple that are married , attending college have their own apt. have a family ,buy a home all without neither one having a job. It seem a little odd to complain about not having a kitchen table. I know she was trying to have women relate to her but doing without a kitchen table and having to cash in stock is not most peoples hard times. A little out of touch.
