TAMPA High atop the Republican National Convention on a Wednesday evening, this blogger has a fantastic view of everything. The delegates are milling about on the floor, media rushes about to get interviews, and speakers struggle to keep the attention of the audience.
Again, Wednesday evening, the Texas delegation is dressed alike, this time, with light blue shirts and cowboy hats. The North Carolina delegation, for photo day, chose to wear seersucker suits to stand out on the floor. This blogger has loaned her jacket out to a cold neighbor, here in the Tampa Times Forum. The Forum is the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning NHL team.
This convention has been as fun as advertised, though a bad back has slowed your blogger. She rented a scooter for the week and the RNC sent over a special Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) van that travels back and forth to the convention each day.
As regular readers may know, this blogger travels quite often to hear political speakers and has been active in politics since the age of six. After becoming seriously involved in the GOP and in the conservative movement at age 18, this 45-year-old no longer gets too excited at political speeches. It seems like after nearly 30 years in politics, we’ve seen and heard it all. KCC just doesn’t get too excited about it anymore.
However, something remarkable happened last night. Ann Romney happened.
She spoke about her life as a a wife, as a daughter of a Welsh coal miner, and the mother of five sons. Mrs. Romney discussed how it all started. How she went to a dance with Mitt. How they dated and fell in love.
They were married way too young because they were “crazy in love”, and at 22 she found herself the mother of their first son. She had no clue what to do. We’ve heard that story before.
Mrs. Romney told the crowd that things weren’t always easy, but she and Mitt could depend on one another and they knew they could clear every obstacle. She talked about how her husband, despite the demands of his work, always made time for his family. Mostly she showed his human side. If there were any doubts in this blogger’s mind about Mitt, Ann Romney’s speech took care of them.
Wednesday night’s theme was “We Can Change It”. Your blogger thinks a better theme would be “We Can Change It BACK” or “We Can Change if FORWARD”. Change is now a scary word after Mr. Obama came into office and raped & pillaged our nation.
The liberal media keeps writing about Romney’s “problem with women”. Polls are showing however, that among married women, Romney has a huge lead! Romney does not have a “women problem”.
He has a “liberal women problem” and there is simply nothing that can be done about that!
More to come….
