I thought Mitt Romney's acceptance speech at the GOP convention was perfect. He delivered as far as this American is concerned. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from his speech:
I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division. This isn't something we have to accept. Now is the moment when we CAN do something.
My mom and dad gave their kids the greatest gift of all – the gift of unconditional love. They cared deeply about who we would BE, and much less about what we would DO.
All the laws and legislation in the world will never heal this world like the loving hearts and arms of mothers and fathers. If every child could drift to sleep feeling wrapped in the love of their family – and God’s love -- this world would be a far more gentle and better place.
The President has disappointed America because he hasn’t led America in the right direction. He took office without the basic qualification that most Americans have and one that was essential to his task. He had almost no experience working in a business. Jobs to him are about government.
Everywhere I go in America, there are monuments that list those who have given their lives for America. There is no mention of their race, their party affiliation, or what they did for a living. They lived and died under a single flag, fighting for a single purpose. They pledged allegiance to the UNITED States of America.
I am scary excited about November. Why? Because so many of us Americans are ready to make a change happen in our white house. Because the nightmare of the last 3.5 years under the reign of Barack Obama might actually be coming to an end. Because Mitt Romney could become the president of these United States of America and that would please me immensely.
That's all from me for now. More thoughts to come soon.
