Where's Mitt Romney Been?
Free and Strong America PAC ^ | 10-31-08 | Mitt Romney

Posted on 10/31/2008 8:01:22 PM PDT by GOP_Lady

Right now, I'm on a plane somewhere over Nevada en route to New Mexico. We're in the midst of an exciting five-day, eight state tour to rally support for the McCain-Palin ticket. This trip will take us across the interior west, through the heartland states of Missouri and Indiana, then on to the battlegrounds of Ohio and Pennsylvania, before ending in New Hampshire with an Election Day rally in the blue-collar city of Manchester.

With your support, we've targeted dozens of races and poured our resources into them, starting at the top of the ticket with John McCain and Sarah Palin but also dozens of important congressional and state races. We've held fundraisers, sent out direct mail, stumped in the districts, held news conferences and basically pulled out all the stops.

But, in the end, it comes down to you. Your vote will make a real difference. The liberal turnout machine, with special interests and big labor providing the grease, is expected to put thousands of people on the ground to get out their vote. Conservatives need to fight back with a super-size turnout of our own. This is where you come in. Take a moment to go to our website, FreeStrongAmerica.com, and review our list of endorsed candidates. Then, on November 4th, please vote for those who appear on the ballot in the area where you live.

I don't have to tell you how critical this election is for the future of America. We can either follow the course of Europe, with higher and higher taxes and more and more government in our lives, or we can reaffirm our nation's founding principles of individual liberty and freedom.

If liberals capture the White House and increase their majorities in the House and Senate, it would be a real setback for the issues we care about - the appointment of conservative judges, getting ourselves off foreign oil, the protection of life, the importance of lower taxes and the need to rid the federal budget of wasteful spending and pork.

Finally, I'd ask you to also consider making a contribution to the Free and Strong America PAC. With your ongoing support, we can continue to advocate for candidates and ideas that will strengthen our economy, our military and our families.

Thank you for all you have done.

Mitt Romney Honorary Chairman

I’m not sure where he’s been, but I got a robo-call from him today asking me to vote for Congressman Bill Sali. He asked so nicely that I’m gonna do it. ;-)

Waiting for 2012. Then he will have to face Palin. In other words … looking at his history in presidential politics. ;-)

Dear Mitt:
Your minions have stabbed Gov Palin in the back over and over. You are afraid of her and I understand why. She represents the future of a conservative Republican party and you represent the failed past.

Kiss my ass. I will never support a backstabber like you.

October 31, 2008

Are You Going to Help?

There’s still time to help elect John McCain and Sarah Palin. This past weekend, I made phone calls through the volunteer online phone bank. I admit, I was uncomfortable cold-calling complete strangers on a Sunday afternoon. But it was ultimately a rewarding experience. There were people who still claimed to be undecided. There were also several Republicans who sounded like they needed a little encouragement to go to the polls. I like to think I made a difference.

In the middle of the afternoon, I blegged for advice because I was having a hard time talking to answering machines. As I expected, the wisdom of crowds made things much easier.

Please consider making phone calls on behalf of McCain/Palin 2008 in the next few days. The process is very easy. Sign up at the top link above (I’m fairly certain you don’t even have to use a real email addy if you don’t want to get GOP emails) and within minutes the website will provide you with names, locations, phone numbers and scripts. (I think the hours are from 9am to 9pm Eastern.)

You generally get to choose the state you’d like to make calls to, so if you have free long distance like me, you can help out with some of the battleground states. My suggestions are Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

I’m tucking some advice from last weekend under the fold. Read it first and then get calling. I challenge each of you to make at least twenty phone calls. It won’t take that long and it may make a difference on Tuesday. I’m going to be calling again this weekend too.

Later: I want to emphasize that you can make calls from the comfort of your own home. This is so easy to do, there’s just no excuse for not helping.

Get the names and numbers from the McCain/Palin website. Call in between loads of laundry. Call while you’re waiting for dinner to be done. Call after you put the tot down for her afternoon nap. Do what I did and call while you’re blogging. I know you guys spend countless hours just sitting in front of your computer. You could use a little of that time to call voters.

(more....)

We need to get word to Mitt that if we get even a whiff of rumor that his henchmen are dissing our Sarah, then he will never get another vote from us. They had better not DARE try to blame her if Mac loses this election. She is the only thing he has going for him.

Mitt and Palin would have made a great team.

Also What's his name - Gov. of Louisnana and Mitt would have been great. Ah, Gindell - not sure about the spelling of his name - he's one to watch out for. Like Mitt he is SHARP. I don't want Palin as a President ... . She is useful this time around ... .

That’s too bad.

It’s easy to see the difference between those who are petty and have no class ... Mitt does put “Country First”, has class and isn’t petty and foul mouthed.

After Fred bailed out, I happily voted for Mitt and would do so again in a heartbeat.

Once place Romney has been is Dothan, Alabama.

Last week, Romney came to Dothan to support the Republican candidate for Congress whose name is Jay Love. The local newspaper’s headline read, “Romney in town for Love”.

I give Mitt full credit for being a team player, esp in the eleventh hour of the race.

(Full disclosure, I was for Mitt in the primary.)

As I see it, Mitt sees the horrific danger to this Country and our way of life if we are taken over by an Obama/Ayers presidency.

I salute all the GOPers (Mitt, Thompson, Giuliani and Huckabee come to mind) who have actively supported the ticket.

Romney is an articulate purveyor of Capitalism and he is an economic genius .

My doubts about Romney were about the gun issue . I believe that he was uneducated about the gun issue and we will see if he has learned about the importance of that issue to the Conservative populace .

Could Romney have truly gotten more accomplished in Mass ? Is Mass not falling apart further into the depths after he has is gone from Mass ?

I’m still not sold on Romney concerning the gun issue . Economically I think he should be taken seriously and has much to offer .

"Could Romney have truly gotten more accomplished in Mass ?"

Of course. He could've reduced the numbers of Republicans in the legislature to zero. Came close, though.

"Is Mass not falling apart further into the depths after he has is gone from Mass ?"

It's interesting that Coupe De Ville Patrick, his Obamaesque annointed successor, is having to clean up the mess Slick Willard left behind. It's a bad sign when a Marxist rodent is doing a better job at governing than a Socialist RINO.

"Economically I think he should be taken seriously and has much to offer."

I took him very seriously. Saddling the state with budget-busting Socialist medicine is nothing to sneeze at. But what do you expect from Socialists like Slick Willard ? Economic Conservatism ? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !

Hello there.

My opinion of teamwork ? Keeping Socialist RINO prima donnas away from the party structure whom would continue to undermine our team. If Slick Willard wants to demonstrate that he cares about the GOP and not his own political future, he’ll do something very simple. He’ll go away. :-)

Don’t forget Romney refused to accept federal matching funds of 42 million dollars so that McCain could have access to his fundraising list and not compete with the same donors.

Follow the money, Mitt wouldn’t waste 42 million dollars so that he could undermine McCain. You anit-MittWitts are stupid. The facts are Mitt’s side.

Should McCain serve only one term...and I suspect he will Palin will be the nominee but the in fighting between the conservative base(normal people) and the lowlife DC scumbag RNC types will try to keep their hold on the party.

Romney, the DC establishment and a majority of the Republicans in the senate will try to sabotage at every step. It will be a mess but Palin will prevail.

You funny. He'd waste a billion dollars if it got him closer to the Presidency.

"The facts are Mitt’s side."

Facts and truth have never been on his side, but you keep trying. Gotta earn that money, y'know.

Cause she ain’t nmh’s man Mitt. Romneybots are gonna start the process of savaging Palin cause she’s 2012 competition for Romney.

Oh she’s “useful” but not that “sharp” ‘needs more seasoning’ not like fellow 1 term (failed term) Governor Romney, he’s ‘eminently qualified’ and ‘an economic genius’. The truth, she’s done good as Governor of Alaska, he did bad as Governor of MA.

Yep, he sounds like a selfish guy, NOT!!!

This is a case of itchy ears, believing lies about Romney because it makes you feel good. But then again, its typical of this crew. I am glad you guys are reacting this way, because there are only probably 5 to 10 people on the entire site who believe. If you ran a poll on this topic you would be losing in a landside. You guys have just shot your credibility.

LOL!

I tend to like Mitt's family more. His girls have normal names and none of his girls have gotten pregnant out of wedlock. If Sarah had some time with her family ... Bristol might not be pregnant.

As for socialist programs - Sarah wants to dump more money into “special needs kids” and this will be at the expense of normal kids - more of what we have today. Sarah is a hardcore public school advocate.

Sarah Palin is NO Margaret Thatcher - well for you - in your dreams. Sarah is useful for THIS election only.
