Yesterday, I reacted to the reactions to Romney’s Friday night speech to the RNC. I did so becasue I did not have a chance to see the speech. Well now I have. Watch it with me:
The campaign for the presidency, 2016, should not merely be about candidates positioning themselves to get elected. It should be a test of leadership. That leadership will be expressed in the candidate or candidates that can get the nation to understand the terrorism cancer that threatens us and convince us that we have to do what we have to do to survive. I know, national security elections have seemed a thing of the past. I am looking for the candidate that can make 2016 a national security election. Anything less threatens our very existence.
What is the number one concern in that speech by Romney? Making the world safer! He is the first candidate or potential candidate to hit what this writer considers exactly the correct tone and stance. In one speech he has moved me from thinking about what loyalty requires of me to being truly excited by what he has to offer the campaign.
Well and truly done.
