• Mitt Romney and Scott Walker Looking Presidential At The RNC Winter Meeting In San Diego

    Presidential hopefuls for 2016 were in full force at the Republican National Committee winter meeting in San Diego, CA, which I was covering for The Rick Amato Show  on OAN. The event was held at the Hotel del Coronado on Coronado and wrapped up at the USS Midway Museum in downtown San Diego.

    Among the speakers, were Dr. Ben Carson, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin and ended with Former Gov. of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney.

    The emphasis of both Romney and Walker was the need for stronger national security, and a smaller government.

    Mitt Romney outlined his three principles should he run for president.

    1) Make the world safer.

    2) Provide opportunity for all Americans regardless of the neighborhood they live in.

    3) Lift people out of poverty.

    Romney discussed at length the failed foreign policy of President Obama and Hillary Clinton, adding that he joked during the last campaign that Obama really had no foreign policy. The foreign policy of Obama and Hillary Clinton, Romney said is: “If we are friendly enough to other people and we smile broadly enough and press the reset button, peace is going to break out.” He continued by saying, that the results of this horrifically failed foreign policy has been devastating and labeled it “Speak loudly and carry a small stick.” “Our party must stand for making the world safer” Romney declared.

    Romney and Walker echoed the same sentiment on national security as well having a smaller government in our lives.

    Scott Walker speaking the night before told the audience; “Republicans should measure success by how many people are no longer dependent upon the government.”

    Neither Romney or Walker officially came out and said, yes I am running for president, but it was pretty clear that they both were strongly considering it. Walker said, “For the good of our country, we need to find a new fresh leader.” Mitt Romney said he gets asked a lot what does Ann (his wife) think of all this. Following up with, Ann thinks people get better with experience. To which, I have to agree. Both Mitt Romney and Scott Walker impressed me. Let the campaign blitzkrieg begin!
