Ann Romney Republican National Convention Speech: Spreading the Love

by at . Comments

Ann Romney, the wife of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, addressed the party's convention last night to discuss life, challenges, and her husband.

"Tonight, I want to talk to you about love," the warm and engaging Mrs. Romney said, regaling the crowd with stories of the couple's courtship and marriage.

The goal of her speech: Help people understand the personal side of her husband, a successful and decent man but one who struggles to connect with voters.

Think she succeeded? Take a look below ...

Ann Romney's Republican National Convention speech was both an introduction of herself and a full-throated defense of her husband's character and values.

She touched on her struggles with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer. She defended his work ethic, saying, "I can tell you Mitt Romney was not handed success."

"This man will not fail," she said of her husband of 43 years, as the crowd in Tampa Bay Times Forum erupted with cheers and gave her a standing ovation.

Ann defended her husband's great success in business, offering a character testimonial to rebut attacks that paint him as aloof, wealthy and out-of-touch.

"Mitt doesn't like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point," said the mother of five sons.

"We're no different than the millions of Americans who quietly help their neighbors, their churches and their communities. They don't do it so that others will think more of them. They do it because there is no greater joy."

No matter who becomes president we will all continue to get old and will one day leave this earth. To all the prejudice people, you will no longer have to blog your racist selves to the world, but only to GOD. And beg him to get your ass off fire and it will Never happen.

Ann Romney, total class. You won't hear her say, anti-American stuff like Mrs. Obama. "I wasn't proud to be an American, until my husband became President." Well, Queen Michelle, I guess you prefer a lesser, America.
