Election Day 2012

People who know me know who I've voted for already. I've made it a point to keep my political views off of Facebook. I've learned over the years that Facebook people are very unforgiving when it comes to differing political views, and no matter what I post in my newsfeed about who or what I support, it will not change anyone's mind to agree with my point of view. I think I posted one word and a hash tag once, and I got some serious hate mail. I have friends that are both Republicans and Democrats, and I hate how immature and hateful they can be towards eachother during an election season. ...more

Romney Banking on Low Turnout, Enthusiasm Gap

Happy Election Eve! National polling predicts a tight presidential election between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney and some fear a long, drawn out ballot count. Mostly notably, both camps fear a provisional ballot count in Ohio that cannot begin until 10 days after the polls close. Hanging chads, anyone?...more

I forgot about the election-VOTE

Vote. That’s the only endorsement I have.For the last 3.5 years, the President has been fighting for reelection and the slew of republican candidates have been stumping to take his seat. For the last year, we have endured yard signs, endless commercials, debates and endless news stories about what the candidate and the president are doing to gain a nomination, endorsement or end the senseless requests from Donald Trump.I’m just ready for it to be over....more

What Do Your Kids Know About Election 2012?

Posted by Cindy Gillespie:  Recently, some of the women who served as members of Governor Mitt Romney's cabinet in Massachusetts got together in Boston to talk about their time working with the Governor.  Some of the stories they tell in this clip I had never heard before, although I worked closely with them and Governor Romney for many years. They reminded me that while Mitt may be known for his head with numbers, he always leads with his heart....more
