Mitt Romney Declares He Is In in 08 Because Talk Is Cheap

The one term Governor from Massachusetts Mitt Romney, declared he will run in 08. He made his announcement at the Ford Museum in Dearborn Michagan. Since he is calling himself the true conservative of the Republican party it was probably hard to declare himself in the lefty state of Massachusetts. Besides, his father George Romney, who had a failed attempt for President in 1968 against Nixon, was the Govornor of Michagan from 1963 to 1969. So it makes sense, kinda. Mitt Romney is a Morman, which should make no difference at all, but will. And he was also the head of the Salt lake City Olympics in 2002, bringing it back on it’s feet. Romney is a clean cut kinda guy, doesn’t smoke, drink, or cuss. Just like President Bush, Romney was a cheerleader in school. He married his high school sweetheart, has 5 children, and 10 grandchildren. He has been accoused of flip-flopping a trait that failed his fathers Presidential campaign against Nixon. Most notably he has changed his mind about abortion. When running against Ted Kennedy in 1994 for the Senate seat Romney was for abortion rights, but now he is pro life. Romney explains, “Not everything I believed 12 or 13 years ago is the same today,” …. “And so about two years ago, I said I am pro-life.” Romney says Washington needs new blood saying, “I do not believe Washington can be transformed from within by a lifelong politician,”…. “There have been too many deals, too many favors, too many entanglements — and too little real world experience managing, guiding, leading.” Romney went on to say, ‘We have lost faith in government, not in just one party, not in just one house, but in government.” …. “It is time for innovation and transformation in Washington. It is what our country needs. It is what our people deserve.”…”Talk is easy, talk is cheap. It is doing that is hard. And it is only in doing that hope and dreams come to life.” On Iraq, Romney is for staying the course, “I believe that so long as there is a reasonable prospect of success, our wisest course is to seek stability in Iraq, with additional troops endeavoring to secure the civilian population.” For a complete text of his speech this morning click here.
