Mitt Romney Targets for the Majority at RNC

By the end of the week, voters should be acquainted with Romney; otherwise a chance to meet him may not possible anymore.

The Republican National Convention this week challenge Mitt Romney to yank a party and a biography that aren’t particularly oriented to the center back toward the middle.

Hurricane Isaac is not as strong as outside forces. Romney has beaten with the party activists and Ron Paul’s libertarian forces to Florida with voices of their own, reminders of a fractious primary campaign that left Romney battered.

What fueled Democratic attempts to make the election into a war over women is the rape and abortion of Missouri Senate candidate’s odd comments: It’s been a messy precursor to the convention. Those comments trigger Romney and the full Republican Party apparatus to banish Rep. Todd Akin, fearful that they’ll tug perceptions of the party back toward the extremes.

Romney said, “I think it was terrible statement on his part.” This was stated of Akin on “Fox News Sunday.” “I think it was outrageous and offensive. I’ve asked him to get out of the race. I think I’ve distanced myself from the kind of thing he said as far as I possibly can.”

Rep. Paul Ryan as Romney’s running mate hasn’t helped with distance, at least not yet. Romney needs to put an end to and fast the attempts of the Democratic to link Ryan to Akin that dominates the run-up to Tampa-stories.

Getting back on a message focusing on issues of jobs and the economy, and Romney’s challenge will be connecting his biography to the message.

What is filtered mostly through a lens crafted by President Obama and his allies is the Romney’s popularity throughout the nation. Romney’s elite background and easy to mock business record have been fodder.

The convention schedule this week will prominently feature members of Romney’s family even if it is shortened.

Romney Appeal Amidst Unwanted Distractions

Mitt Romney promised to help promote women-led businesses the moment he will defeat President Barack Obama in November’s election. This was declared by him last Saturday that “women need our help.”

Before the convention of the Republican opens on Monday in Florida , an appeal came as the former Massachusetts governor tried to shrug off a series of unwanted distractions.

Romney with running mate Paul Ryan at his side said, “Just a word to the women entrepreneurs out there, if we become president and vice president, we want to speak to you, we want to help you. “ This was spoken at Columbus area where an outdoor rally happened that drew an estimated 5,000 people. “Women in this country are more likely to start businesses than men. Women need our help.”

The party’s position on abortion comes a promise as Republicans face difficult questions on this issue after a Missouri Senate candidate’s recent suggestion that women’s bodies can prevent pregnancy in case of “legitimate rape.”

Romney raise the discredited rumor that comes in less than 24 hours about Obama wasn’t born in the United States. These comments and efforts to explain surpassed his economic message as he campaigned near his Michigan birthplace on Friday.

This remarks was not elaborated further on Saturday, however he assailed the Democratic incumbent for failing to deliver on his campaign promises.

Romney said, “I can almost read his speech now. It’ll be filled with promises and tell people how wonderful things are.”  The said speech will be of Obama that will be delivered at the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina next month. “It is not his words people have to listen to. It’s his action and his record. And if they look at that, they’ll take him out and put people into the office who’ll actually get America going again.”

 

 

Obama’s Lead is Narrowed Down Against Romney

The deficit of Romney against President Obama among likely voters in Florida and Wisconsin but not Ohio has narrowed down after the selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate. This is according to a new Quinnipiac/New York Times/CBS News poll.

The lead of Mr. Obama to Romney is down from 49 percent to 46 percent in Florida, down from 51 to 45 on August 1. From 49 percent to 47 percent in Wisconsin, Congressman Ryan’s home state, down from a six-point lead, 51 to 45 percent in Ohio, unchanged from Aug. 1.

The assistant director of Quinnipiac University Polling institute, Mr. Peter Brown said, “Gov. Mitt Romney’s pick of US Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate has made some small difference in Florida and Wisconsin, at least at this point, when voters in these three key states are asked about their presidential vote.”

Since 1964, of those three states, Ohio is the top bellwether having voted for the winner in every presidential election, the longest winning stake of any state. The four point bounce in Wisconsin of Romney is similar to other recent polls and reinforces as a tossup state along with Ohio, Florida, Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Virginia, and New Hampshire .

The Medicare proposals as the focus of significant attention since Ryan joined the ticket Aug. 11-is widely unpopular in Florida, Ohio, and Wisconsin which is 1/3 of likely voters approved of Romney’s plan to turn Medicare, the federal government’s health insurance program for seniors, into a voucher like system. Although the system is projected to become insolvent in 2024, there are around 6 in 10 want to keep Medicare the way it is.

The Medicare would change to a system of premium support in 10 years as Ryan GOP’s budget plan. A fix sum to purchase either private insurance or traditional Medicare shall be given for seniors. This system according to Democrats would fail to keep up with the rising cost of health care.
