Governor Mitt Romney and the letter "D"

 

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z

 

Death Penalty

  • “Just as science can be used to free the innocent, it can be used to identify the guilty.”

 

 

Debt

 

  1. "The Federal government must stop its borrowing and spending binge. The Debt is a burden on our economy, our currency, our foreign policy, and our future. This is beyond pork barrel spending. We must address entitlement programs – not just to save money – but to give Americans confidence in their future." - Governor Mitt Romney's PAC
  2. 03-15-2005; GOVERNOR ROMNEY ANNOUNCES BOND RATING UPGRADE FOR COMMONWEALTH’S DEBT; Represents first upgrade of general obligation bonds since 2000
  3. "They paid back all the loans, all the Debts that their family business had incurred before they went on to their own successful careers." Governor Mitt Romney speaking of his dad.
  4. "When I was running for office I had a debate as you may recall, actually five of them. Don't know whether you saw the one where Tim Russert was the moderator. He wondered how we were going to be able to close a $1 billion budget gap. And I had to lay out what my plans were for doing so. When I got in office, my Secretary of Finance came to me and said, I've got great news and bad news. The great news is we don't have a one billion budget gap. The bad news is we have a $3 billion budget gap. And there were some people that said all we have to do is raise taxes. And I said, look, if you raise taxes you kill jobs and you hurt working families. There were some other people that said why don't we just raise Debt. We can just borrow our way out of this. But if you raise Debt you just put our problems on the backs of our kids. I said no, we're going to go back to government, we're going to cut out the waste and inefficiency and duplication. We're going to do the job we were elected to do. And Republicans and Democrats came together and made a lot of that happen." - Governor Mitt Romney at the NH Federation of Republican Women's Lilac Dinner

 

 

Democrats

  • “In Massachusetts, code orange means John Kerry just got out of the tanning salon.”

 

 

Disabled

  • “I am very pleased to sign legislation that will help the disabled community to influence policy and advocate for greater accessibility within public transportation.”

 

  • “Members of the disabled community are heavily reliant on public transportation to function in their day-to-day lives,” said Mrs. Romney, who lobbied legislative leadership to enact the bill. “For this reason, it is especially important for them to be able to take part in RTA meetings and make their voices heard if issues of concern arise.”

 

 

Desert Shield

  • "Senator Kerry now tells us he has a clear position on the war on terror. He voted no on Desert Storm in 1991 and yes on Desert Shield today. Then he voted no on troop funding, just after he'd voted yes. He's campaigned against the war all year, but says he'd vote yes today. This nation can't afford presidential leadership that comes in 57 varieties." Source: Speech at the Republican Convention

 

 

Diversity

  • “My Administration is committed to assembling a state government workforce that reflects the fabric of our community,” Romney said. “We will work hard to ensure that our Administration recruits and retains talented individuals from all backgrounds at every level of government.”

 

Romney thanked the members of the council, from both the public and private sectors, for serving his Administration in this important role. “With the help of the council members, my Administration will work hard to foster a culture of inclusion that values diversity. We want Massachusetts to be recognized as a great place for people from all backgrounds to work and raise a family.” Source: 09-26-2003 Press Release

 

  • “One of the hallmarks of good government is making sure that everyone has a seat at the table. In this administration, diversity’s not a slogan - it’s a fact."
    • Governor Mitt Romney

 

  • Speaking of the education provided to minority students, Romney said, "I really believe that the failure of our urban schools and, in some cases our suburban schools, to help minority students achieve the levels that are necessary for success in the workplace is the civil rights issue of our time."

 

 

Divorce

 

The First Wives' Club Kate O'Beirne

 

Should Mitt Romney join a 2008 race that included John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich and George Allen, the only guy in the GOP field with only one wife would be the Mormon.

 

Domestic Abuse

 

  • “For far too long, the subjects of domestic abuse and sexual assault remained behind closed doors and out of the public eye,” said Romney. “Lieutenant Governor Healey and I are 100 percent committed to dealing forcefully and swiftly with criminals who choose to engage in these horrific acts against society.”

 

 

Drunk Driving

Here are the quotes I found about Drunk Driving from Governor Mitt Romney. Please help me find other ones. I think every victim of repeat offending drunk drivers would want to support Governor Mitt Romney for president in 2008. I think members of Mothers, students, and recording artist against Drunk Driving should all examine his record.

 

  • “Drunk drivers endanger the lives of innocent people, and that needs to stop. We need a per se law because it will save lives and reduce the incidence of people driving drunk.”

 

  • “As the only state in the nation without a per se law, Massachusetts is poised to lose millions of dollars in federal highway funding,” said Romney. “At a time of fiscal crisis, we can’t afford to sacrifice any federal dollars that we could be putting to good use here in Massachusetts.”

 

  • “Today, Massachusetts has a tough, new drunk driving law on the books,” Romney said. “Sadly, for many years, we were the only state without a per se statute. Now, we can proudly take our place with the rest of the nation.”

 

  • “Stun guns have proven time and time again when used by law enforcement officers in other states that they are an effective tool in stopping suspects,” said Romney. “It is high time for our men and women in blue to utilize this modern crime fighting technology.”

  • “Two years ago, Melanie Powell went out for a walk with her friends and never came back. Her life was taken by a repeat drunk driver. We can’t bring Melanie back, but we can do everything in our power to prevent this kind of tragedy from occurring again.” said Romney.

 

  • "We’re going into overdrive this Labor Day to keep the roads safe here in Massachusetts," said Romney. "The bottom line is: ‘You Booze. You Cruise. You Lose.’"

 

  • “Letting drunks get behind the wheel of a two ton automobile is no different from handing them a loaded gun and setting them loose on the streets,” said Romney. “While the legislation that came to my desk last week contains several good provisions, it does not go far enough. I believe we can do better.”

 

  • “Today we honor those who have lost their lives in senseless drunk driving tragedies and act to save the lives we could otherwise lose next year,” said Romney. “We have Melanie’s law today because the citizens of the Commonwealth cared enough to make it happen.”
