First posting: March 13, 2006 -
Purpose: to follow Mitt Romney presidential persuit through news article, blog posts, and local events.In an April 18, 2006 posting titled "Temporary Reprieve," James wrote, "Hey folks- I apologize for the shortage of Romney news. Things are getting very hectic at work. I expect to be back and at it again by May 1." By June 1 there were still no signs of activity, but in mid-June the redesigned site did appear complete with a new, simpler address.
I (Pete James) am a resident of Massachusetts, and like my governor. I have recently had the change to see him speak in person, and meet him briefly. That being said, I have not picked my horse yet for the Presidential primaries. I am very impressed with Mitt's speaking ability and resume, and am thinking of supporting him. As such, I thought it would be great to keep tabs on him for myself and others, as he runs for the presidency.
Is Mitt a genuine center-right conservative, or is he just playing politics for the primaries? I don't know, but hopefully we can find out as we follow him for the next 1-2 years.
