The entire tone and content was someone moved by love of family, faith and country to serve others through business, voluntarism and public service. In a local community these virtues would make him the town's favorite citizen. Somehow through the caricature lens of the Democratic media these virtues are twisted and unrecognizable. Romney got to present himself without the filter last night and his essential goodness was evident. The sprinkled testimony of friends and colleagues throughout the day set the stage. Mitt Romney has real character and real accomplishments. He has a track record of leading great teams and enabling other leaders. Compared to the Lecturer in Chief (no shortage of disdainful words), Romney is real.
