Mitt has been under serious attack

Mark Levin has links to a couple of blogs which defend Mitt's historical stances on issues. Mitt haters try to count him as nothing more than an opportunistic ego maniac looking for the next job promotion. They argue that Mitt will say whatever will get him elected and that he has no principles.

Levin seems open to Rudy, can't stand McCain, but seems very partial to Mitt. This is already getting very interesting. And election day is about 20.5 months away.

Mitt Takes on a Religious Heclker.

There is going to be lots of this. I am glad Mitt is such a good speaker. He is one of the best prepared to respond to such bigotry. Video link here. (Hat tip NRO.)

Now mITT begins in earnest

Excerpts from Mitt's official Presidential announcement:
The best ally for peace in the world is a strong America.

Our influence must once again match our generosity.

Some believe America's strength comes from government... I believe the American people are the source of America's strength.

We strengthen America by increasing freedom, by letting people keep more of what they earn, and improving education and innovation.

America can't continue to lead the family of nations if we fail the family at home. How do we strengthen the family? By putting marriage before children: every child deserves a mother AND a father.
Mitt is right on. This is a tremendous opportunity. This may prove to be a chance to prove Joseph Smith and Brigham Young right: If the constitution is to be saved at all, it will be by the Elders of Israel. The most important issue of our time is strengthening the family. Mitt is the only candidate who knows about and believes in the Family Proclamation. Following that document is more important than any petty party platform.

Update: Here is the full transcript.

Rocky's Speech to his Son

Buy Rocky Balboa here:Rocky Balboa DVD or Rocky Balboa Blu-ray

This is one of my favorite movie speeches ever. The YouTube is here.
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!

I found the text here.
