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. =)

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

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

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

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

Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,” accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack. Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. “Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with

John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans

CHINA - a 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. (snip) Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes. An eyewitness said: "He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument."

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
