Several people have asked me about where to view the CNN Special, “Romney Revealed” that I helped with a bit and which I discussed here. I have only found bits and pieces on CNN’s site, but someone has uploaded it to YouTube:
Artur Davis, the former Congressman from Alabama, switched parties earlier this year and has now thrown his support behind Mitt Romney. The switch is significant, give that he served as a national co-chair for President Obama’s 2008 campaign and made one of the nominating speeches for Obama at the 2008 Democratic Convention. He now lives in Virginia and has been campaigning for Mitt in Virginia.
As the world turns, he will also be speaking at the Roanoke tomorrow evening with my friend and MittTheMan.com partner, Dr. Dane McBride. Chatting with Dane this week, he is look forward to meeting Congressman Davis and is excited that the congressman is on Mitt’s team!
I love listening to Mark Steyn. I love reading what Mark Steyn writes. This time, however, he says things that are well-argued, as he does so well, well-argued, but also alarmist and premature. Concluding his piece at National Review Online, which is entitled “Milquetoast Mitt,” he writes:
Vacations are great, but they don’t always leave time to do other important things like keep up with a blog such as MittTheMan.com. A post yesterday from a visitor to the site made me feel a little guilty for having neglected the site for a while, but only a little! Nevertheless, here is an explanation of what has been happening.
For our vacation this year, my wife and I have come to France where she is from. We landed in Paris, spent the night there, then drove to her home town in Bordeaux. After a short stay there, we went on to Corsica, where we had six wonderful days. We spent last night on the ferry back to Marseille and then stopped in Toulouse during our drive today back to Bordeaux.
Contemplating the Primary Election next Tuesday, I sent this letter this morning:
To My Family and Friends in Alabama (or who know folks in Alabama!),
I have mentioned in the past that Mitt Romney is every bit the terrific person that he seems to be! You are also probably aware that I know this because I have known Mitt for 45 years. With another friend from our days with Mitt in France, we started a Web site, MittTheMan.com, because he is who he is: The smartest, hardest working person we know. Just as important he is a man who is honorable in every aspect of his life. Our effort is the best way we could come up with to counter the negative bias that we find from the Left and the Right, and we are excited that the site is now getting several hundred hits a day from people who are anxious to learn more about “Mitt the Man: Person, Husband, Father, and Friend.” People learn on the site why we have no doubt that Mitt is the man of the hour, the man our country needs… Now!

Mitt’s speech at Ford Field today and its aftermath cry out desperately for comment. On the one hand we have the political fortunes of Republican candidates rising and falling, coming and going, seemingly at the behest of conservative pundits. For whatever reason, too many of these sages of the media cannot fathom the idea of a Mitt Romney presidency. In contrast to their cleverly phrased declarations, we hear comments by business leaders such as Donald Trump and Jack Welch who say that Mitt is the man that the country needs at this critical time in its history. As described here previously, Welch said that “Mitt Romney is the most qualified leader to run for the presidency in my lifetime!”
Talk among the pundits abounds about the desire for a brokered convention. A USA Today poll in an article in today’s edition of that paper says that “Republican voters oppose a ‘brokered’ convention.”
Yet, the story begins with the premise “that most Republicans wish they had different choices in the party’s presidential field.” The piece continues with an explanation that contradicts the very idea raised by the writer.
