Romney had a great rally in Leesburg yesterday, over 10,000 people! (Compare that to the 900 who turned out for Obama when he came to Leesburg in August.) It was so exciting, such a happy, enthusiastic crowd! We could feel the energy in the air, people know that Mitt Romney and George Allen will win in Virginia, on their way to the White House and Senate! Our Loudoun Board of Supervisors rushed to attend the rally despite having a scheduled meeting. They got through the hearings just in time to get to Ida Lee Park and hear Romney speak. I appreciate their efforts and I’m glad they didn’t have to miss the rally! I know they all wanted to be there. It was electrifying! We all wanted to be a part of it.
Romney looked, and sounded, like the next President! He’s so tall! Also funny! Dennis Miller was hilarious, even if he did forget our Congressman’s last name! The Washington Post covered Dennis Miller here.
Susan Allen spoke on behalf of her husband, George Allen, looking great, and delivering her optimistic, enthusiastic, message. Much of her message, and Romney’s message, centered around women and how much they have suffered over the last 4 years under Obama, with lost jobs and much higher prices for gas and groceries.
My favorite Romney line, ”I don’t want to make America like Europe … I want to restore to America the freedoms that drive our economy – our economy is driven by freedom, by personal freedom, by people pursuing their dreams.” Yes, our economy is driven by our freedom, freedom to choose without the government getting in our way.
