The Content of His Character

I have been watching the videos of the speeches at the Republican National Convention, including all of the highlights and some of the “minor” speeches also.

I have to tell you, I smell a landslide coming our way. Despite the polls which show a close race, I think Mitt Romney will win big in November.

The reasons can be explained by math and campaign strategies and slick commercials, but even more so I feel that he will win because of my gut feelings.

With Barack Obama, there is so much less than meets the eye. With Mitt Romney, there is so much more. Every time I hear something new about him I am impressed, and not because of his skills in business (heaven knows America needs that in its president now), but because of his character. This character shows when he is reluctant to brag about his good deeds. What a contrast to the narcissist currently in the White House!

I also think he is vastly underestimated, and he is a lot tougher than he looks.

He was able to speak about his plans to help America get out of its economic slump, and contrast his own approach with Obama’s. He also was able to cut Obama down to size, without being overtly nasty. His line that “Obama promised to stop the rise of the oceans and to heal the planets. I promise to help you and your family” was a perfect example of a gentleman devastating his opponent while taking the high road.  He is a class act, and the more the American people pay attention and get to know him the more votes he will garner.

I look forward to sending in my absentee ballot.

    He may be vastly underestimated, but Obama is still ‘way overestimated, and I don’t think the American people will accept the hard truths. Fairy tales are so much more pleasant and we Americans are ‘way too quick to go for the easy.

    shilomuse – I certainly hope so!

    mysending – I think that so much unemployment for so long will make most Americans willing to try something different. There has been three plus years for most people to realize that the fairy tale ending didn’t happen.

    I pray you are right!! It is a desperate situation we find ourselves in here in America and I pray people will wake up to the realization and stop listening to the lies in the media…. We need leaders with real character who are willing to do what is right no matter the cost! Thank you for your support.
