2012 RNC Speeches Captivate Republican Hearts

I spent much of the week watching the fantastic speeches given at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa, Florida. Ann Romney set the place ablaze with her speech. I am amazed at the eloquent words spoken by Condoleezza Rice and the wise words delivered by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie when he said that his mother taught him that respect is more important than love. Rick Santorum gave a moving speech in which he mentioned the plight of the unborn who are needlessly aborted.

All of the Republican senators delivered excellent speeches. Who could not appreciate the excellent speech delivered by Marco Rubio, the U.S. Senator representing Florida? Of course, Mitt Romney's outstanding speech was highly anticipated, and it did not disappoint the large crowd who interrupted it to unanimously shout "U.S.A." several times. A commentator mentioned that Mitt Romney wrote the speech himself. My opinion is that Mitt Romney's acceptance speech reflects the words of a humble and sincere man who wants to get America back on track.

My conservative friends on Facebook agree that the Republican National Convention was a huge success. Many Facebook conservatives are posting glowing comments about the various speeches, especially those given by Ann Romney, Paul Ryan and Gov. Mitt Romney (in that order).

Santorum Answers Questions at Town Hall Teleconference

I recently attended a live, one hour political telethon during which Rick Santorum answered questions. The political teleconference focused on the 2012 presidential election, and it was held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, January 5, 2012. The Presidential Series National Tele-Town Hall was sponsored by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, and my attendance was the result of an accepted invitation from a Facebook group I belong to called Conservative Republican Women.

Rick Santorum takes the time to answer questions during a hectic day in New Hampshire

Rick Santorum was late for the meeting because over 1,000 voters attended his New Hampshire rally that same day, and the senator stayed on a bit to answer questions before joining in on the teleconference. Those who attended the conference were instructed to press the star key, followed by the number three, on their telephones if they wanted to ask any questions. While waiting for Rick Santorum to join the group of several thousand interested individuals, a campaign representative politely answered some of the questions addressed to the Santorum campaign. Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum then joined the teleconference and replied to questions posed by various attendants.

Rick Santorum wrote the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban bill

The fact that Rick Santorum authored the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban bill, which was signed by President George W. Bush, was mentioned by one of the sponsors of the teleconference. This bill was designed to ban partial birth abortions. This Republican presidential candidate previously served in the House of Representatives and was the Senate Republican Conference Chairman. He also authored a bestselling book entitled It Takes a Family. Rick Santorum is the proud father of seven children, so this is a man who really does care about families and family values. His answers to questions were truthful, humble, yet filled with confidence. At the close of the Presidential Series National Tele-Town Hall, he asked those attending the conference to pray for him, his wife Karen and his family. He also personally invited voters who wish to offer him assistance during his presidential campaign to visit his personal website.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum practically tied the Iowa Republican Caucus on January 3, 2012, with Mitt Romney receiving receiving 24.6 percent of the vote and Rick Santorum receiving 24.5 percent. Mitt Romney is also a family man who is married to Ann, his high school sweetheart, and they are the proud parents of five sons and the grandparents of ten grandchildren. Both Romney and Santorum appear to have integrity, sound values and excellent Republican tenets by which they live their lives. Either one of these candidates far surpasses any requirements for a U.S. President who truly loves the United States of America.

Republican Debaters, Waterboarding and Foreign Policy

Viewing the South Carolina Republican debate on November 12, 2011, made me proud to identify with Republicans. The debaters, who included Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman and last, but not least, the eccentric, and somewhat out of place, Ron Paul, were civil and respectful toward one another. The debate focused mainly on foreign policy, including topics pertaining to terrorists, security and torture. The issue of whether waterboarding is or is not a form of torture was discussed.

A close relative, who is not by an means a conservative, told me he watched the South Carolina Republican debate last night, and that he thought it was a good debate. This speaks volumes in favor of the Republican nominees, who displayed perfect manners, even in the midst of situations less than perfect. For example, at the beginning of the debate, Scott Pelley mistakenly informed Mitt Romney that his 60 seconds had expired and that he could not finish his statement. Former Massachusetts governor and 2008 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney fought back in polite verbal terms when he asserted that he still had 30 remaining seconds. As it turned out, Mitt Romney actually did have 30 remaining seconds and was then allowed to finish his statement.

The debate was interesting and lively, and there were no dull moments of which to mention. A discussion about whether or not waterboarding constitutes terrorism offered interesting viewpoints from the various Republican debaters during the November 12 Republican debate held in South Carolina. Anyone, whether a Republican, Libertarian, Independent or Democrat, could not help noticing that these honorable contenders for the 2012 Presidential Election demonstrated that the security of America is best protected by conservative leaders.
