My Husband and I are huge Romney supporters!
We lived in Salt Lake City during the Olympics and saw first hand how he turned around a very bad situation and made the SLC 2002 Olympics the most profitable Olympics in U.S. history. After the closing ceremonies my husband made the comment that it would be awesome if Mitt would run for President some day. Of course Mitt went on to become the Governor of Massachusetts and helped turn that state around as well. He has 25+ years in business creating profitable companies that are very successful. So in 2007 when we heard Mitt was putting together an exploratory committee to run for President in 2008 we were super excited!
July of 2007 Mitt Romney came to Atlanta and here I am getting my picture taken with him. What was his message? The Economy and his concerns of where our country was headed if not directed properly. What did everyone want to talk about…the war! What happened the last 4 years…the economy down fall! I have never been big into politics but, in 2008 I helped arranged a call center in our area during the Primary’s. Of course when Mitt bowed out of the race in 2008 we were disappointed but, he is back better than ever!
Yesterday my husband, 2 oldest daughters and I had the privileged of meeting Ann Romney and listening to her speak here in Georgia.
I didn’t get any great photo opportunities with her but, wow what a women she is. Her message was compassionate about “Restoring America” and who better to get the job done then her husband who she has watched 1st hand turn around bad situations. She was also funny! She said she loves her Grandchildren so much and especially when they misbehave for their parents! LOL She has 5 boys and she said they are getting pay back! LOL She also talked about her battle with MS and Breast Cancer…her husband was with her every step of the way. She says she hasn’t been home in her own bed since the Primary’s in New Hampshire and been traveling with 1 suit case!
After the last election she said never again did she want to do it again. Mitt reminded her that she said that each time she had a baby! LOL She said this time around it is different. This is the most important election in our life time in order to change America’s future. She explained Mitt’s perseverance to get a job done and she knows he is the man to get it done so she was 100% on board when he decided to run again. She is afraid for her Children and Grandchildren of what they and all of us will inherit if we don’t get our Government spending under control. I don’t know about you but, someone with his determination and success along with high morals is who I want to see as our next President!
Here are my 2 oldest daughters with Ann in the background being interviewed by the media. I realized that my oldest daughter will be old enough to vote in the 2016 election. This was such a great experience to teach my girls that they too have a voice to stand up for what they believe and to make their vote count! I was also interviewed by a local news media as well!
Mitt and Ann have been married 42 years, have 5 Sons and 16 Grandchildren. They are faithful members of their church and believe in high moral values. I feel like out of all the candidates they relate to my family and truly care. They will follow through and do exactly what they say “Restore America.” I think Ann will make a wonderful 1st Lady of this great nation! I’ve already voted early for the Primary’s in Georgia but, make sue you all get out and vote on your Primary election day!
