“I will not agree with Mitt on all issues...but BY GOD, this man loves America”
What a stunning contrast to Obama’s suffocating anti-Americanism and constant political pandering.
LOL -— Fox commentator called him “President.” That slip is beginning to happen more frequently.
Take heart..soon the can salute him as their CiC!
Then if he is to be believed he would pull our funding of this failure.
Some of it is pie in the sky..for example..Egypt is lost....
No one blamed Reagan for losing Iran!
So i am not worried about it hurting Mitt on election day, but it is sad that Egypt has been lost to the crazies...
If Obummer supproted the revolution in Iran in 2009 I don;t think Egypt would be as Lost as it is today.
God bless that piccolo player doing ‘Stars and Stripes’. I’ve played that many times and it’s NOT easy. LOL!
Love that song and the band sound great!
I’m in tears...
And I really like the way these cadets smiled and looked at him..they know.
I hope he does have what it takes. The Chicago Machine needs to be taken down and then exposed. Another four years will destroy us.
Yeah..but these were REALLY GOOD TELEPROMPTERS!!!
Wow what a surprise, the Brookings guy liked the speech! Pigs are flying somewhere...
They really seemed to like him.
Giving this speech gets Romney’s position on the record before Bob Shieffer tries to control the “debate” on foreign policy.
Earlier in the day, while puttering about, I heard something about a speech, something about Virginia, something about at Military school and foreign policy.
I figgered with all this hype that it was the President going to speak. All morning, advertising and going to cover this speech.
Hand to God I sit down and figure, well dag, Obama’s going to speak at a military school and so soon after he looked like the bafoon he is with that debate? I gotta see this.
Coulda fell off my chair when it was Romney!
It was Fox, true, but man I don’t recall a presidential contender getting such a sober lead up.
So for the heck of it I flipped to CNN. THEY COVERED THE SPEECH IN FULL AS WELL!!
I dunno what this means. If anything.
It’s like....Romney’s the leader now, we must capture his words. If this makes any sense.
Romney was masterful, he said that the current administration is misleading and misled with that silly movie riot story.
I couldn’t have changed a thing.
First two callers to C-Span.
Negative on the speech. MSM just can’t help but to provide cover for O......
Yes, and we ALL know what these Cadets were thinking too; Something to do with the current Traitor-In-Chief..
Narcissistic Punk - one of the very best descriptions of Obama I've heard.
They don’t screen the callers on C-SPIN so any Libtard can call the “Independent” and “Republican” lines.
I listened carefully, and to your point about our policy on the Syrian situation, he said he would find out who in the Assad opposition we can work with, and support THEM. He specifically mentioned in the speech that al qaeda is on the move in Libya, Syria and other places.
He pointed out that Assad is an Iranian puppet. I think this is a good point. To sit back and let Syria deteriorate into what it has, doing nothing, is not the best course. He pointed out that Syrians with better intentions than Assad OR al qaeda are angry and saddened that America has done nothing as they are slaughtered by the thousands.
What he seemed to say is, we need to be on the side of people who do want something better for themselves in their countries, NOT that we should choose between Assad and al qaeda (which basically means choosing NOTHING) while everyone else is slaughtered.
I have never prayed so deeply or with such urgency in my life as I am praying for this man to be elected.
I am quite simply terrified of four more years of the current president.
Thos e smiles were more telling than anything I have ever seen involving bam. Those cadets smiling...and speaking as well, because Mitt kept saying thank you to them one by one.
G-d is answering us.
“First two callers to C-Span.
Negative on the speech. MSM just cant help but to provide cover for O......”
YEAP BUT THEN the Moderator jumped in on the last call and said something to the effect of “Is it fair to say Obama did not have any foreign experience either”.....and the caller agreed......... LOL
Yes, they've had a free ride for so long and spent too much on socialism - don't see how they're going to want to cough up for their own defense. But still, I agree with the idea.
Meanwhile, On CNN, Zakaria slammed it as “Almost the same as Obama’s”, while the other talking head said “Etch-A-Sketch”....
HOW DO THESE PEOPLE GET BY WITH THIS CRAP?
Did he really? Whoa...
I immediately turn off Cspan because I’m trying to stay positive...
This was a superb speech in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. Only thing I am skeptical of...and it’s my nature...is the so-called two state solution with falsestinians.
YEAP BUT THEN the Moderator jumped in on the last call and said something to the effect of Is it fair to say Obama did not have any foreign experience either.....and the caller agreed......... LOL
Agree. Good to hear that.
Thanks for posting this.
He's getting intelligence briefings now also so nobody can accuse him of speaking out of school. The Democrats won't dare bring this up because they know that Obama has been SKIPPING many of his intelligence briefings.
What a contrast from four years ago. Did John McCain give any foreign policy speeches like this when he was running?
Thanks! I’ll see if I can look that up!
“This was a superb speech in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. Only thing I am skeptical of...and its my nature...is the so-called two state solution with falsestinians.”
I totally understand and agree...........I just have to keep in mind, look who the other choice is
Grrr... missed Romney's speech. Rush is glowing over how great it was.
Does anyone have a link to the entire speech?
Thanks so much...
I don't have cable so couldn't watch the speech, but 2 of those cadets are young men from my church and I know their mom recorded it - so I'm sure I'll get to see it.
C-Span & Fox News Network (FNC) carried the entire speech!!! Romney was spot on and excellent. This guy Romney could take over as an effective POTUS tomorrow morning. Obama. the American traitor and failed POTUS must go!!!
Thanks! I didn't hear the speech but will watch it later on C-Span.
My view is that while Assad may be a devil, he is the devil we know. As bad as he may be, he does try to take some care of women, ethnic and religious minorities. Yes, he is receiving support from the Iranians but given the loss of Egypt as an American friend, might there be an opportunity here to take a pragmatic approach of putting the past in the past and winning Assad over from the Iranians and Russians? Carter for all his flaws did it with Sadat and that worked out fairly well until hussein came along.
Haven’t found video yet...
Rush is correct. It was dignified, quietly superior and full of smarts. I guess the thing I always get when I listen to him is- he loves America.
Looking for a link to Romney's speech... darn, I missed it live!
LOL! Never mind...If you click on the link I posted ...the video is there too ;)
Going back to my duuuhhh...corner!
Romney is hitting his stride at the right time. Obama is going to collapse like a house of cards in the debate on foregin policy.
There were telepromters on the stage and he MAY have used them. But it was hard to tell because he made eye contact WITH the audience.
I count six times Mitt mentioned “fail.”
See link in post # 137...you can hear it there.
He used the word FAIL as a lead into each area of the ME that BO has or could have had an influence. Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Isreal....ANd then in his conclusion. Very well done...well written.
"Romney is truly a wonderful man. I heard him once in a small setting two years ago and I was very impressed. Answered questions about foreign policy for two hours without a note. Afterwards I told him he was the closest thing to Ronald Reagan I had ever heard. He liked that."
Answered foreign policy questions for two hours without notes & my cousin (considered an expert) was very impressed? Barky Obummer is in big, big trouble. ☺
Can't wait for the VP debate Thursday..may delve back into your website for a dinner recipe..something to go with a really good Chianti Classico I plan on enjoying during the debate..
BTW..the dessert was excellent..church ladies loved it..thanks again..
I was amazed to hear how long it took for Romney to receive intelligence briefings. It seems to me they started right after the nomination at the conventions.
I just had an awful recall of Obama and his Office of the President-Elect podium! If that wasn’t an indicator of the emptiness ahead! “A numb skull full of mush”...
[ Was Romney using a teleprompter or not? Conflicting info on this thread... ]
Even if he actually did use a teleprompter, there is a good chance he wrote it himself anyways.
I appreciate that - but along with no cable, I also don’t have enough bandwidth to listen on line. I’ll get to hear or see it within the next 24 hours.
