The large Governor of the small state of New Jersey gave an impressive speech coupling a dearing anecdote of his mom to how Romney and his party will be doing business from here on out– though during his speech it seemed as though Crispy, not Romney, was the GOP nominee.
The greatest lesson that mom ever taught me though was
this one. She told me there would be times in your life when
you have to choose between being loved and being respected.
Now she said to always pick being respected. She told me
that love without respect was always fleeting, but that respect
could grow into real and lasting love.
He has astonishingly recreated and polished the vague and polluted image of the GOP, and more importantly of Romney.
See, I know Mitt Romney, and Mitt Romney will tell us the
hard truths we need to hear, to put this back on a path to
growth and create good paying private sector jobs again in
Mitt Romney will tell us the hard truths we need to year to
end the torrent of debt that is compromising our future and
burying our economy.
Mitt Romney will tell us the hard truths we need to hear to
end the debacle of putting the world’s greatest care system in
the hands of federal bureaucrats and putting those bureaucrats
between an American citizen and her doctor.
He finished the speech on a teasing but piercing note.
You see, Mr.
President, real leaders do not follow polls. Real leaders
All in all the governor did great- sadly, not as the Governor of New Jersey. For those with short term memory- a large proportion of the electorate- the speech paints the Republicans as the tough go-getters who will fight the fight for the American people and are not afraid of being disliked by the public if being liked means making poor choices that may harm the American people. For those who don’t suffer Short Term Memory Loss this speech was like an infomercial trying to convince you to buy this product the seller professes as the best one out there. Only if a party actually acted as it spoke.
