“Thank you, Mr. Chairman and delegates. I accept your nomination for President of the United States.”
And with that Mitt Romney became the presidential nominee of the Republican Party.
Walking onto to the floor of the Republican National Convention I could feel the electricity.
This once and a lifetime opportunity culminated with the biggest speech of Mitt Romney’s life and of course the famous balloon drop.
The final night of the convention focused on Mitt Romney as a businessman and savior of business. Because… HE DID BUILD THAT!
Romney’s history at Bain Capital was shown in a new light. Staples, Sports Authority, and Bright Horizons would not have been with out Mitt Romney and Bain Capital.
One of the surprise moments of the night for me happened when over 10 Olympians joined on stage to speak about the Mitt Romney they knew… a rescuer.
Romney asked the nation a historic question.
“If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now, that he is President Obama,” he said. “You know there is something wrong with the kind of job he has done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”
Romney proposed a new plan for American Exceptionalism, a path to prosperity, freedom, and peace. It is a new path, a new destiny for America, and a restored vision of our founding fathers.
Common-sense conservatism works and that is why Governor Romney must be elected President.
“President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the ocean – and to heal the planet,” he said. “My promise is to help you and your family.”
I ask you to join me in supporting the next President of the United States Governor Mitt Romney.
