Mitt Romney in His Own Wordsby Phillip Hines
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has articulated his vision for America’s future in an election-year tumult of campaign speeches and media interviews; now, this essential collection of Romney’s direct quotes, past and present, is an invaluable primer that crystallizes his stance on domestic and social issues; national security; the economy; health care; and much more. Here, too, are his comments on his personal life, family, and faith—key insights into the man himself, in his own words.
“I do not define my candidacy by my religion. A person should not be elected because of his faith nor should he be rejected because of his faith.” (“Faith in America” speech, 2007)
“We’re the party of opportunity. We’re the party of keeping taxes down. We’re the party that want people to have choice in their schools and choice in their health care.” (This Week with George Stephanopoulos, 2009)
“When I was a little kid, there used to be the ditty that went around: first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. Today that idea is foreign to some kids.”(The Charlie Rose Show, 2006)
“The older I get, the smarter Dad is. I pattern myself like him—his character, his sense of vision, his sense of purpose.” (Time, 2007)
“America has been a force for good like no other in the world, and for that, we will make no apology.” (Values Voter Summit, 2010)

I'm just begining the book but I feel this will educate me more on the man we NEED to become the president of this great country ONE NATION UNDER GOD!!
Romney says very little. I don't think he even knows where he stands. His words are like fish flip-flopping on a dock. He will say anything and do anything to get the presidency. The only thing he won't do is say anything positive. His entire campaign is built on negative attack ads. Don't tell me what he is going to undo; tell me what his vision is for America! So far I haven't seen it.
"mitt romney in his own words" is a very exceptional book! the editor has collected some of governor romneys greatest states on faith,religion, mission work, money, loering taxes, bussiness, and national security and domestic issues. I love this book because it helps you cut through the day to day issues and lets you know exacally what mr romney said were he said it and were it is from were as so many people today say that a candidate said something and are not reliable. this book is inexpensive and would make a great gift idea.
