Skip to comments.Once-reluctant Mitt Romney opens up on the campaign trail - “Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can’t Lose!”
Posted on 10/06/2012 1:42:37 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
ST. PETERSBURG,Fla.Mitt Romney, his friends often say, is a private man in a public world. But with just one month left until the election, he has calculated that to win the presidency he must do what for years he has been loath to: share intimate stories about his life.
So it was that as the sun set on his rally here Friday night,...Romney talked about David for the first time himself.
It was clear he was not going to make it,Romney said. I went into his room one night when he was in bed,and he asked me a very difficult question. He said, Mitt, whats next? He called me Brother Romney. Whats next? And I talked to him about what I believe is next.
A few days later, when David was in the hospital,he called Romney.
I was at work and he said,Can you come by? And he said,You went to law school, right?'
Romney told him yes. He said,Could you come by and write my will for me?' Romney recalled. So I went to Davids bedside and got a piece of legal paper, made it look very official. And then David proceeded to tell me what he wanted to give his friends. Talked about his fishing rod, and who would get that. He talked about his skateboard, whod get that. And his rifle that went to his brother.
Ive seen the character of a young man like David, Romney continued. He had his eyes wide open. Theres a saying Clear eyes, full heart, cant lose. David couldnt lose. I loved that young man.
It just so happens that a banner with the same adage hung over Romneys holding room backstage at Wednesday nights debate in Denver. As he walked out to debate the president,Romney looked up and read, Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Cant Lose!

It referenced saying 'God speed' to deceivers, deniers of Christ.
If you're gonna stake your argument on it at least get it right.
“It is disconnected from Mitt not being an radical muslim, george soros mutha farker, you POS..I’ll fight to get MItt in the office and what is that I smell? Is it $hit...close, maybe, maybe, yes, Obizmal TROLL...Take an effin’ hike!”
Too bad you can’t justify your emotionalism with any appeal to reality. Get back to me when you demonstrate how Romney really isn’t a pathological liar who has lied to our face throughout the campaign. Up until the actual nomination, most legitimate conservatives were still hoping a miracle would happen to stop Mitt. If you were half as p***ed at Mitt as you are at me, I’d shake your hand even as you slapped me.
“It referenced saying ‘God speed’ to deceivers, deniers of Christ.
If you’re gonna stake your argument on it at least get it right.”
My central argument is that Romney is a known deceiver, denier of Christ. And I’ve got plenty of evidence to back it up, and most of it isn’t even the fact that he was a Bishop in a religious cult.
RaisingCain will not share any personal stories because:
1. He or she considers everyone else on this forum an enemy.
2. He or she post under multiple pseudonyms and has been zotted off of Free Republic on previous occasions and is afraid any personal story would help identify him or her.
RaisingCain makes frequent posts citing the rules of the forums. This is kind of strange coming from someone who is a relative newcomer. There are a couple other posters who are also obnoxious and frequently cite the rules. Strange coincidence... highly doubtful. Sounds kind of like... do I really need to give clues?
And I'd be very careful making that accusation.
“She had the child outside of marriage and Mitt (during her pregnancy) allegedly wanted her to give up the kid to a Mormon adoption agency.”
So she holds it against Mitt that he gave her some good, heartfelt advice.
What’s your excuse? Are you the gay guy who got the haircut? Or maybe your the union leader who did those strikes at the steel plant that forced the Bain-owned steel company into bankruptcy?
Or just an Obama shill concern troll?
... “Its amazing to me how gullible people are when there is solid proof, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this man lies as he breaths for purely political reasons”
... WELL, YES, BUT ENOUGH ABOUT BARACK OBAMA ...
” Even now, his message is entirely different from what it was in the primaries”
— FALSE. AN OBAMA CAMPAIGN TALKING POINT. Romney’s plan is the same plan he talked about in the primary.
Slap you??? Do I come across as gay to you??? I would actually rather pull you communist colon through your mouth and lay it, ever so triumphantly, on your keyboard for your boyfriend to see.
Do your parents know you are pumpin' the purple lipped prince over Romney because he is not of your specific religion? If they were true Americans. I doubt it, or you would be forced out of the basement.
“RaisingCain makes frequent posts citing the rules of the forums.”
Liar! I’ve never done any thing like that.
“He or she considers everyone else on this forum an enemy.”
No no no, just the MittBots. I like everybody else.
“RaisingCain will not share any personal stories because:”
Because I consider your argument, whatever it is, to be irrelevant. I don’t see how sharing a personal story with you is going to change the fact that Mitt Romney is a liar, which none of you have actually disputed with me directly, you’ve only attacked me for saying it.
It’s an election. Neither major-party candidate is perfect.
Good point...same way I now feel about you...irrelevant, but with a large side of annoying. GTFA
Congratulations, RaisingCain you deserve a special bonus for hyjacking another thread with your hateful, nasty, pro-Obama talking points. RaisingCain’s man, Obama has nothing to run on other than attacking a decent man with hundreds of millions of dollars in negative ads and trolls infiltrating conservative forums. Good job sheepdog!
“I have theological differences with Mormons, but I wouldn’t accuse them of being deniers of Christ.”
Weird! Because every denomination, except for the commie-liberal ones, acknowledges they are a religious cult that denies Christ. Primarily because they believe Jesus is a created being who was produced through literal sex between God the Father and the Virgin Mary, and that all people are produced through celestial sex between God and one of his spirit wives, we are all destined to God-hood (if we are good Mormons, learn the secret handshakes, and get approved by Smith who stands on the right hand of God) and that shortly after the time of Christ the Church disappeared, and old Joey Smith was tasked with restoring the “lost gospel” to the world, which he did by translating reformed Egyptian with magic stones out of his hat, marrying multiple wives, including sharing wives with other Mormons, and eventually getting shot by an angry mob while screaming a Free Masonic “Help” signal.
“Slap you??? Do I come across as gay to you???”
Well, you DO get offended that I’m attacking Mitt Romney, who favors gay adoption and gays in the boy scouts, and had a role in promoting the gay agenda in Massachusetts, including Gay marriage. You tell me!?
“Its an election. Neither major-party candidate is perfect.”
Both major party candidates are pathological liars with an insatiable lust for power.
Pick your poison, America!
Wait until the muslin brotherhood is raping you and those you love, courtesy of those one you espouse tonight...I’ll take magic underwear any day.
“So she holds it against Mitt that he gave her some good, heartfelt advice.”
She held it against Mitt for demanding she give up her kid (allegedly) and treated her as less than a human being (allegedly) because she was not as good a Mormon as he wanted.
Here’s the BBC show I was mentioning. The interview is in there with the woman, along with an interview by Park Romney, Mitt’s Libertarian ex-Mormon cousin whom we should have nominated instead! LOL
Amazing that you should know that.
As for you, seek help immediately.
