White House Insider: Mitt Romney’s
Quiet Prayer Amidst
The Sound Of Thunder

The Ulsterman Report, by Ulsterman

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 10/25/2012 3:48:06 PM

A remarkable story from a longtime D.C. political operative of just how personally moved Mitt Romney was following a campaign stop in Red Rocks Colorado where over 10,000 enthusiastic supporters greeted the man they hope will be the next President of the United States. Got this feedback earlier today and thought you’d like to hear it. You know, I’ve gone from just trying to defeat Obama to really trying to help Governor Romney be this country’s next president. I’m really starting to believe there might be something very special about this man.

Comments:
This should give you chills.

I felt that same feeling just looking at the crowd!! This is the difference this time. We aren't looking for a messiah, celebrity or cult of personality. We just want a good leader that is worthy of being the president of the free world. I don't put my hope in Mitt Romney. That hope stays with God and it sounds more and more like Romney feels the same. Awesome!

George W. Bush was a good man, too. I just hope that Romney can actually win it, and that we can keep him conservative.

We watched this on CSPIN. They did not show the crowd or the venue. They also kept the crowd sound down so low you could barely tell there were people in attendance.

That said....when Gov. Romney walked on stage you can tell that he was nearly overwhelmed by the response and the venue.

FTA: As the governor was en route to the amphitheatre they were told the crowd was showing “strong numbers”. What greeted him was a lot more than just “strong numbers” though. It was a massive wave of thousands and thousands of supporters.

Rush had a caller today who talked about this same campaign rally. She and her husband were there and she spoke of the enthusiastic mass of people.

He will need the Lord's help if he wins. This country is a mess. It is full of people who would happily trade freedom for free stuff. They do not understand the constitutional structures that have preserved freedom and made prosperity possible. It is full of people who do not understand that if they want self-government, they actually have to govern themselves. They have to live by standards that will make them self-sufficient, and respect the rights of others.

Romney was never my dream date but the more I see the more I like. Could it be that Republican primary voters accidentally got it exactly right this time?

I know this may sound like hyperbole but Romney puts me in mind of the first GW. He has George Washington's humble and sincere nature and I know this goes against all modern societal trends but I think being humble is the number one prerequisite of a truly great leader.

Yes, this is wonderful.

I read a first hand report from someone who tried to get to Red Rock. They were stuck in traffic that "looked like a parking lot" before they even got close.

The photos of the crowd, some of which are already on Fox, were impressive. Absolutely huge.

Red Rocks is a phenomenal venue. The acoustics are other-worldly. A person can stand on stage and talk with a normal voice and be heard up in the last tier. It was originally thought to be a meeting place for the Ute tribe. The three huge boulders that wrap the amphitheater are called Creation Rock, Ship Rock, and Stage Rock. The formation was once known as The Garden of Angels.
No wonder Gov. Romney was moved to prayer. To quote Jeff Foxworthy...''Here's yer sign.'' Now go out and kick that skinny little Kenyan's behind, you've got a lot of work to do!

There was a very enthusiastic caller, a woman, to Rush Limbaugh's show today, also recounting this event and the moment Romney appeared to be so visibly moved. She said they were told that there had never been such a large crowd in this amphitheatre. I hope someone might post the transcript of that call here (I no longer have a membership, so I can't do it).

FTA: "And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy. Please give me the strength Lord.”

I'm sorry, this just doesn't ring true. My impression of Romney is that he's a private man. He may have prayed silently, but I really have a hard time believing he prayed out loud, or that he prayed loud enough for anyone to hear him. I just don't believe it.

Mitt was my candidate in 2008, and of course throughout this primary season. And what drew me to him was not his experience in business,his turnaround of the Winter Olympics or his service as Governor of Massachusetts, however impressive those credentials are. What drew me to him was his strong values, his endearing devotion of his wife and his boys,his kindness and generosity to friends and strangers alike, and his commitment to his faith. He is grounded in authentic principles, and it comes through. Wish we could have been there at Red Rocks to celebrate with all those who recognize the true goodness of this man. Let us all keep him in our prayers, through November 6 and beyond as he steps up to lead our nation out of the darkness of the past four years.

He was not my first choice, but my sentiments toward (next) President Romney have "evolved" in a big way now that I know more about him (his religion was never a big deal for me-just some political differences).

IF he loses, perhaps he was too good for an America in which this kind of almost Roman-like (the Republic) virtue is no longer valued by enough of us.

There is something very special about Mitt Romney: he is clean cut, honest, decent,hard working, a solid family man and he is a good looking man with a beautiful wife and a lovely family....all very frightening and off putting features for the lefties! Worse, he is intelligent and knows his stuff. If in need of guidance he looks to the right sources, not lefty fanatics.
I do hope God is on our side and he will be the next president!

I don't want to dampen people's enthusiasm, or burst their bubble, but don't make the same mistake so many 0bama supporters did. Don't automatically assume that Romney shares every value you that have, or that he will follow the same conservative agenda that you think he should. He is a good and decent man and is moderately conservative, but, like George W. Bush he is also an accomplished businessman, which means that he will set priorities which are not necessarily yours. He will make deals to accomplish those higher priorities, possibly sacrificing things you consider important. I'm just saying, don't have unrealistic expectations, because we are electing a President, not a king, even though that seems to be way 0bama sees the job.

#12 So right a comment that it touches on how we have gone wrong as a country. Flash and soundbites and trash talk and foul mouth have been winning the day. Obama's energy and followers so obviously epitomize what they follow that i need say no more. And thanks for posting this, it helps people understand why LDS people sometimes go quiet and step away.

Please excuse me for quoting my childhood but i think it was Brigham Young that said something about the days would come that the totally honest man would starve.

Romney may not be perfect but as long as he knows Who to ask for Help and Guidance, that is the best that has ever been available on this earth. And please Lord, that government by, for and of the People not vanish from the earth.

And we will have to do our part. Eternal (in the original sense of the word) vigilance is the price of Liberty.

May we all stand strong and tall beside him without flinching, get the vote out and send a mandate that we don't what what is passiing for the government currently entrenched..

For those of us who have prayed fervently and fasted for this election, this is a sign that God has heard our prayers. Personally I have felt the presence of God when many have been praying for me so I know Romney is feeling the presence of God from our prayers. This should humble any person. God hates pride but loves humility.

#9 He has had the Lord's help all along this time. I was not in any way shape or form a Romney supporter during the Republican fights. That said, I, as believe a lot of us have, had an opportunity to get to know him better.

I believe, and have said so on these boards, that sometimes our Lord knows better than we what is best for us. I also believe that this is God's wakeup call for this nation. We have come so periously close to losing it all. Should we win, we have a LOT of work to do. It should start in two places - in Washington and in our schools. We MUST NO LONGER tolerate the brainwashing of our children! We MUST NO LONGER tolerate politicians who lie to get elected and turns their backs on us once in DC!

Our children should once again be taught TRUE history. They must not be shielded from the pictures and films of the attrocities perpetrated on innocent people - they see worse from Hollywierd and video games! They must be taught what their citizenship in this country means and the sacrifices others have made to build, maintain and to mcome here. WE ARE NOT a bad country!

Should we lose, well, if you haven't been on your knees by now, you'd better damn well hittem and pray hard. Very, very hard.

I, also, am weeping with deep love for our American conservative and moral mores which have become crushed by leftists since the sixties. And out Constitution which has been attacked.
But now morality and truth can gradually make their way back to our people, our children, as this good, strong man will not be intimidated by leftist goons and will uphold what is right as well as actively begin defeating the sheer hell that has been visited upon our Nation for decades.
Justice Roberts understood and told us that it was up to us to elect good leaders and stop trying to get the Supreme Court rectify our mistakes.
Gov. Romney understands, his strong and lovely wife understands, Ryan and his wife understand.
Good will win now. We will be saved. Thank you Gov. Romney. And thank You, God.

This is such a stirring story and gives me such a peaceful feeling. I was one of the ABR people and I'm sorry I was. Our nation is in a deep ditch and Governor Romney seems like he is the perfect choice to be in charge of our recovery. Is there really hope that we can be energy independent and prosperous again? Is there even hope that the MSM's stranglehold on the media can be broken? We live in perilous and exciting times.

The sound of thunder is America saying "no more." But somehow Mitt Romney has also risen above that - he isn't just the opponent of Obama anymore. And I too have gone from voting ABO to voting for Mitt Romney - I never didn't like him - but I definitely started out this election season with ABO as my goal. I think there are millions of Americans just like me - Mitt Romney has won us over with his genuineness and his intelligence and his class. Wish I had a thunder stick but my vote will do. =)

Bless Romeny and Ryan. My hope is that November 6th puts an end to the nightmare of the last four years.

#34...yes it is for real. Big Alert today with three big stories, one from the White House Insider, one from Wall Street Insider, and a story about panic at the WH as they are calling everyone in. Something is about to explode.

My prayers for Governor Mitt Romney have been relentless. I pray for the Holy Spirit to be infused in him and to guide him along these last days of the campaign towards manifesting victory on November 6th to become the next president of this great nation.

What a great night that was at Reds Rocks park in Morrison, Colorado. I live three miles from the Red Rocks amphitheatre and could not believe the mass of humanity that was trekking over there in hopes they could get in. I made it to Romney's first rally at D'Evelyn High School (another turn-away crowd event)a few weeks ago. Certainly, Romney has now come to realize he is about to become the most powerful person on the planet. Now that's "the sound of Thunder".

" i too heard that woman caller on Rush. Her energy, her hope, her enthusiasm was uncapped…She touched my heart in her description…Rush was moved too..and he thanked her for her up lifting call…. and said he'd like to give her a gift , iPhone, IPad or laptop…And you know what she said ..”Thanks Rush, that’s so nice…but I really don’t need anything”…and after a couple minutes she came back to his generous offer and said…”Rush, I would like it, if you gave that nice gift to the next caller who is Military”….

That’s the America, the American, I know and love.

Russian moves raise
stakes in Ukraine conflict
Associated Press, by Dalton Bennett and Maria Danilova*    Original Article

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border. As gunmen wearing unmarked camouflage uniforms erected a sign reading "Crimea is Russia"

Piers Morgan and CNN Plan
End to His Prime-Time Show

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

De Blasio ‘getting back at us’

It really is a tale of two cities — this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft! Huge swaths of the city’s wealthiest neighborhood had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, leaving 1-percenters out in the cold, according to the city’s own map of snow-plower activity. “He is trying to get us back. He is very divisive and political,” said writer and life-long Upper East Side mom Molly Jong Fast of Mayor de Blasio. “By not plowing the Upper East Side, he is saying, ‘I’m not one of them.’ But we have everyone in this

Alabama loses 45-31 to

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

In a Dec. 13 profile of outgoing Smithsonian Institution Secretary G. Wayne Clough, art critic Philip Kennicott called the order Clough gave three years ago to remove from a National Portrait Gallery exhibit a video that included images of ants crawling over a crucified Christ and of male genitals a “cowardly decision.” Referring to Clough’s predecessor Lawrence Small, Kennicott wrote in the Washington Post: “After a period of imperial leadership that reflected the larger and crass sense of entitlement during an era of reckless economic speculation, Clough brought homespun decency to the institution, but he didn´t bring much

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
