From the Desk of Bob Beauprez
Because we believe that the next presidential election will be a defining moment
in shaping the future of this nation, we have taken the unusual step of making an
early commitment to the person we are convinced should be elected President in 2008.
His name is Mitt Romney.
We have had the opportunity to learn a great deal about Mitt and we are impressed
by what he has achieved - as a husband and father, as a successful businessman, and
as the Governor of Massachusetts who brought conservative governing principles to
a state famous for its liberal tendencies. He and his wife Ann have raised five wonderful
boys, always putting family first. All five sons are married and have given the Romneys
ten grandchildren - so far. Theirs is a family that embodies the values that we,
as Americans, treasure.
As you may know, the invisible primary - the fundraising deadline of March 31st -
is quickly approaching. Presidential candidates will be judged by political pundits
across the country on the amount of money they have raised in the past three months.
We would be pleased if you would join us in supporting
Mitt Romney today [http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=kkvva5bab.0.rodid5bab.xptll9bab.688&ts=S0235&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mittromney.com%2Fcontribution%2Fform] with a generous contribution so that he can make a big splash
in the invisible primary. The current maximum for an individual is $2,300 (or $4,600
per couple) per election. Federal multi-candidate PACs may contribute $5,000 per
election. We strongly urge you to consider making
a contribution [http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=kkvva5bab.0.rodid5bab.xptll9bab.688&ts=S0235&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mittromney.com%2Fcontribution%2Fform] of any amount to Governor Romney today.
Mitt Romney believes strongly in the core principles of free enterprise, fair and
free trade, accountability in education, personal responsibility, tolerance, strong
families, and a national defense second to none. More than that, however, we are
amazed at what he accomplished during his term as Governor of Massachusetts - strengthening
education, laying the foundation for private, market-based health insurance for all,
and cutting the size and cost of government.
Specifically, without raising taxes or increasing debt, Governor Romney closed a
$3 billion deficit in his first year in office. Each year, Governor Romney filed
a balanced budget without raising taxes. By eliminating waste, streamlining the government,
and enacting comprehensive economic reforms to stimulate growth in Massachusetts,
he got the economy moving again and transformed deficits into surpluses.
At the peak of his business career, he was asked to take over the 2002 Winter Olympics
in Salt Lake City. You may remember that the Olympics were beset by scandal and had
fallen deeply into debt. Romney took over and, as he had done with so many companies,
he went to work turning things around. The
result was the most successful and profitable Olympics in history [http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=kkvva5bab.0.rodid5bab.xptll9bab.688&ts=S0235&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mittromney.com%2Fcontribution%2Fform] - even in
the face of security concerns following 9/11.
We share these stories about Mitt Romney because we believe that he possesses not
only the right political philosophy, but also the experience and leadership skills
necessary to guide this great nation. We encourage you to learn more about Mitt Romney

Thank you for taking the time to write to me regarding your feelings about Mitt Romney. Mind if I ask a few questions?
First, what actions did Mitt Romney take to keep illegal aliens from residing in Massachusetts or taking jobs from real citizens and legal immigrants?
Second, what did Mitt Romney do to restore the rights of gun owners in Massachusetts?
Third, why would I throw good money after bad in giving to Romney after I lost money backing you to run for Governor last year? You do remember last year, don't you, Bob? You lost the race to a guy who was all but kissing illegal alien keester on public television. Why was that? Because you were caught being a hypocrite. Your bank was giving accounts to illegal aliens, Bob.
Now, you WERE better than the former Denver DA who let illegal alien drug pushers go on misdemeanor pleas that let them stay in the United States so they could molest little girls.
If I have to back a lost cause for 2008 then why wouldn't I give my money to someone else from Colorado who has a real agenda and a better track record than Romney? Someone like Tom Tancredo?
Oh, yeah. I fogot. I already did give to him. That means there is nothing left for your friend Mitt.
