Republican Mitt Romney’s hoping for a big win in Michigan January 15th primary – and so does Rep. Pete Hoekstra…
Not only does he desperately need a primary win, but his father, George Romney, sat at Michigan’s governor from 1969-1973. A loss in his home state would devastate Romney’s campaign. In an effort to ensure votes, Romney’s enlisted fellow Republican Pete Hoekstra and his wife to do some traditional celebrating.
From Boston Globe via Bay Windows:
In the spot, Representative Pete Hoekstra and his wife, Diane, say that Romney will cut taxes, lower spending, and create jobs – a huge issue in the economically depressed state. They also vouch for Romney’s Michigan connections.
“Governor Mitt Romney represents the values that are important to us,” Diane Hoekstra says. “He will fight for the unborn and traditional marriage.”
“Mitt Romney’s values are Michigan values,” Pete Hoekstra chimes in.
Hoekstra was the first Republican to call for toilet trolling Senator Larry Craig’s resignation.
I think George Romney served from 1963-69.
It’s funny that despite a total decimation of manufacturing jobs and the downward spiral of living wages, the only thing that matters to Michigan republicans are the rights of the unborn.
I remember George Romney, that’s how old I am. He was a serious contender until he changed his mind about the Vietnam War, saying that he had previously received a brainwashing by the Pentagon. This was re-shaped into “I was brainwashed.” The word “brainwashed” was in all the talk shows and editorials, and I recall one radio newsman called him George I-Was-Brainwashed Romney. Actually, Romney was absolutely right. Those running the war would publicly swear the US was winning in Vietnam. Privately, they knew it was unwinnable.
Romney is our strongest Republican candidate, and will match up well with Hillary and Obama. I pray for his success in Michigan.
I wish people would leave the word desperate out of it. Mitt Romney has so far WON the popular vote, not even counting Wyoming, where he won 70% of the votes.
Mitt has the most delegates, the most popular votes, is the best financed for competing with Hillary and Obama, and actually has solutions that make sense for America on everything from the economy to health care to immigration. EVERYTHING. This man is brilliant, and where he has not been right, he has learned quickly.
I can think of no man I would prefer as America’s chief executive.
Uh…Jed, you musta taken a wrong turn at anncoultersbeaver.com….you’ve ended up on a fag website. Your fellow conservatives are not gonna like that!
Oh wait…I forgot. Y’all conservatives suck dick in private. Never mind. Welcome.
