Thoughts by Mitt Romney:
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Apology
I will begin my presidency with a jobs tour. President Obama began with an apology tour. America, he said, had dictated to other nations. No Mr. President, America has freed other nations from dictators.
The embassy in Cairo put out a statement after their grounds had been breached. … An apology for America’s values is never the right course. … The statement that came from the administration was – was a statement which is akin to apology and I think was a – a severe miscalculation.
An apology for America’s values is never the right course.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Citizenship
With these 11 million people here illegally, let’s have them registered, know who they are, those that are her paying taxes and not taking government benefits should begin a process towards application for citizenship.
Those who have come to the United States illegally should not be given
amnesty or an easier path to citizenship over those already in line.
One simple rule: no amnesty, no special pathway to citizenship.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Country
The principles that made this nation a great and powerful leader of the world, have not lost their meaning. They never will. We know we can bring this country back. I’m Mitt Romney. I believe in America. And I’m running for president of the United States.
This country already has a leader who divides us with the bitter
politics of envy. We have to offer an alternative vision.
Illegal immigrants should be required to return to their home country.
Staple a green card to their diploma – welcome to the United
States of America! We want those people in our country.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Economy
In the richest country in the history of the world, this Obama economy has crushed the middle class. Family income has fallen by $4,000, but health insurance premiums are higher, food prices are higher, utility bills are higher, and gasoline prices have doubled. Today more Americans wake up in poverty than ever before.
Right now we have an economy in trouble, and someone who spent their career in the economy is more suited to help fix the economy than someone who spent his life in politics and as a community organizer.
You know, out-of-touch liberals like Barack Obama say they want a strong economy, but in everything they do, they show they don’t like business very much. But the economy, of course, is simply the product of all the businesses of the nation added together. So it’s a bit like saying you like an omelet, but you don’t like eggs.
Ronald Reagan was a president of strength. His philosophy was a philosophy
of strength – a strong military, a strong economy and strong families.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Elections
I like being able to fire people.
We have a president, who I think is a nice guy, but he spent too much time at Harvard, perhaps.
I’m not familiar precisely with what I said, but I’ll stand by what I said, whatever it was.
Frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I don’t think I’d be qualified to become president.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Genius
Whatever happened to Trump Airlines? How about Trump University? And then there’s Trump Magazine and Trump Vodka and Trump Steaks, and Trump Mortgage? A business genius he [Donald Trump] is not.
President Obama’s view of a free economy is to send your money to his friends. My vision for a free enterprise economy is to return entrepreneurship and genius and creativity to the American people!
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Leadership
Central to America’s rise to global leadership is our Judeo-Christian tradition
with the vision of the goodness and possibilities of every human life.
My leadership will end the Obama era and begin a new era of American prosperity.
America cannot continue to lead the family of nations around the
world if we suffer the collapse of the family here at home.
Leadership – leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Luther
These American values, this great moral heritage, is shared and lived in my religion as it is in yours.
I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.
My father and I marched with Martin Luther King Jr. through the streets of Detroit.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Opportunity
Our plans protect freedom and opportunity, and our blueprint is the Constitution of the United States.
I will spend the next four years rebuilding the foundation
of a opportunity society led by free people and free enterprises.
Dependency is death to initiative, to risk-taking and opportunity.
I have never once regretted missing a business opportunity
so that I could be with my children and grandchildren.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Presidential Election
I went to a number of women’s groups and said, “Can you help us find folks,”
and they brought us whole binders full of women.
I like being able to fire people.
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Roe V Wade
I was an avidly pro-life governor; I’m an avidly pro-life individual. As a pro-life Republican,
I am in favor of having the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.
I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years we should sustain and support it.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Sanctity Of Life
I took action as governor to preserve the sanctity of life.
And let me make this very clear – unlike President Obama, I will not raise taxes on the middle class. As president, I will protect the sanctity of life. I will honor the institution of marriage. And I will guarantee America’s first liberty: the freedom of religion.
Every piece of legislation which came to my desk in the coming years
as the governor, I came down on the side of preserving the sanctity of life.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Taxes
The people who are having the hard time right now are middle-income Americans. Under the president’s policies, middle-income Americans have been buried. They’re just being crushed. Middle-income Americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. This is a tax in and of itself. I’ll call it the economy tax. It’s been crushing.
And fifth, we will champion small businesses, America’s engine of job growth. That means reducing taxes on business, not raising them. It means simplifying and modernizing the regulations that hurt small business the most. And it means that we must rein in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare by repealing and replacing Obamacare.
I have paid taxes every year, a lot of taxes.
So, for instance, let me make this clear: You know I signed a statement. I will
not raise taxes on anybody. I don’t want to raise taxes on the American people.
Mitt Romney Thoughts/Quotes on Volunteer
We respect and honor very deeply those people who decide to serve their country in the military. But we certainly don’t denigrate people who choose a different course, particularly when we have an all-volunteer army.
We reserve our deepest respect and admiration for those who volunteer
for service and give their lives to help keep our nation secure.
I do believe that by virtue of having a volunteer army, you are going to have men and
women who decide to serve and others who decide to pursue different careers.
