Mitt Romney’s Talk at the Isaac Home

April 27, 2012

We were honored to have Mitt and Ann Romney visit our home on November 14, 2011. The Romneys arrived early and had an opportunity to relax and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the Gulf of Mexico. The event that evening was intimate and wonderful, as Mitt and Ann were able to greet and talk with each guest before addressing the group. They are both the real deal.

Since it is already in the public domain I provide the link below in case you want to view it.

The 2012 Presidential election is the most important since the Carter/Reagan election in 1980, arguably more important in view of the severe fiscal crisis facing our nation.

I urge you to read it, particularly if you are sitting on the fence. The speech can be found at the link below.
