Most conversations are simply monologues delivered in the presence of witnesses. - Margaret Millar


I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me. - Dave Barry


I would like to get a copy of the transcripts from Mitt Romney's debates, but I can not find them. Please help!


Tonight, Romney for President Iowa Chairman Doug Gross released the following statement on the first Republican presidential debate:


"Governor Romney again demonstrated why he is the leader our country needs right now. He was unafraid to answer the tough questions, and offered the solutions to bring real conservative change. On the major challenges and issues facing our generation, Governor Romney will bring the fresh perspective from outside Washington needed to find innovative solutions."


Tonight, Al Cardenas, former Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida and a Chair of the Romney for President Florida Steering Committee, released the following statement on the first Republican presidential debate:


"During this evening's debate, Governor Romney decisively showed that he is the only candidate that can transform Washington through real change and conservative values. Governor Romney won tonight's debate by clearly communicating his optimistic vision for America's future. We are facing a new generation of challenges, and this evening's event was a great opportunity for more Americans to learn why Mitt Romney is the best equipped to confront them."


A Statement From James Bopp, Jr.

"Governor Romney is the most forceful Republican candidate defending the freedom of speech. He believes that we should not be limiting political speech, and the involvement of citizens in our democracy, in the name of campaign finance reform. We need transparency and disclosure in our campaign finance system, but McCain-Feingold has done the opposite, driving contributions to groups dominated by the wealthy and with little accountability to the public. All citizens should applaud Governor Romney's call to repeal McCain-Feingold."

A Statement From Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC)

Thursday, May 03, 2007 09:46 EST


"More than any other Republican presidential candidate, Governor Romney has outlined an aggressive agenda to cut taxes. He will lower taxes for all Americans, make the Bush tax cuts permanent, abolish the Death Tax and making savings tax-free for middle-income Americans. Lower taxes protect jobs and ensure continued job creation. Because America's strength rests with its people, Governor Romney believes Americans should be able to keep more of their hard-earned money."


-Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC)

A Statement From Governor Matt Blunt (R-MO)

Thursday, May 03, 2007 09:43 EST


"Governor Romney did a superb job in the debate and he demonstrated that he is the right leader to bring change to Washington. With a record of turning around troubled companies and institutions, Governor Romney has real, relevant experience. More importantly, he brings a fresh perspective from outside the Beltway and he articulated his vision in the debate. Our nation confronts a new generation of challenges and we need Governor Romney's innovative, executive leadership."
