GOVERNOR MITT ROMNEY ON THE BEGINNING
OF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT TERM
Boston, MA – Today, Governor Mitt Romney issued the following statement regarding the beginning of the U.S. Supreme Court term:
"The First Monday in October marks the beginning of the U.S. Supreme Court term. Cases in the upcoming term could dramatically impact the everyday lives of all Americans. The Court will face questions involving the death penalty, voter identification as a means of ensuring fair elections, efforts to stop child pornography, whether terrorists held as enemy combatants deserve special rights, and perhaps even our right to keep and bear arms. That is why it is important that we nominate justices in the strict constructionist mold of Roberts, Alito, Scalia and Thomas.
"Today reminds us that a judge's most solemn obligation is to the 'rule of law,' a phraseology of which I am particularly fond since it comes from the original Massachusetts constitution of 1780. It reminds us that those appointed to the federal bench must leave behind their partisan passions and retain only one: the passion for 'equal justice under law.' Respect and fidelity to the rule of law and equal justice under law must guide the judicial mind and, in fact, they are required by the oath all federal judges must take.
"Those holding themselves out for the Presidency have an equally solemn obligation: to find women and men for judicial service who respect the rule of law and who will be faithful to the law as enacted. As President, I intend to nominate judges who respect the separation of powers, are committed to judicial restraint, and have a genuine appreciation of the text, structure, and history of our Constitution. The judges I nominate will recognize, as I do, that as Justice Scalia once said, the Court ought not take the field as some kind of 'junior-varsity Congress.' That would wrongly displace the first-string legislature, drawn from our deepest pool of talent – 'we, the people.'"
ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT LAUNCHES ANNROMNEY.COM
Boston, MA – Today, Romney for President launched its newest website, AnnRomney.com. As the premier location for information about Ann and her family, visitors to AnnRomney.com will get an insider's perspective into Ann's time on the campaign trail, the Romney family and Ann's causes. The website is a unique forum for people to connect directly with Ann.
"Campaigning with Mitt has been such an incredible experience. One of the best parts about being on the campaign trail is the opportunity to meet so many great Americans that we might not have otherwise met. Here at AnnRomney.com, I hope people from across the country will get to know a little bit more about me, my causes and the importance of family in my life. Our campaign is doing so many creative things online, and I'm proud that this site will be a part of that," said Ann Romney.
Central to AnnRomney.com is "Ann's Causes," a section detailing Ann's struggle with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and her work to promote awareness about the disease. As Ann writes on the website, she is "continually amazed by the number of people who approach me to offer support and relay their struggles and successes with MS." Through AnnRomney.com, she will continue to build awareness about the disease, support networks and treatments. On the website, Ann writes:
"As I learned more about the disease, I learned this is a very common feeling and have made an effort to reach out to newly diagnosed friends, family members and people I meet on the road to simply talk to them about their concerns and fears. I don’t think anyone can prepare for a diagnosis such as this, but I was very fortunate to have the love and support of my husband, my family and my friends, and if by making a phone call to a newly diagnosed patient, I can ease a few of those fears, it is worth it. If you, or someone you know, has recently been diagnosed, please click here."
Visitors to AnnRomney.com can also see video, news coverage and photos from Ann's time on the campaign trail. In the coming weeks and months, the website will be continually updated.
Ann's Causes: "I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in the fall of 1998. Since then, I have devoted a great deal of time to raising awareness about the disease and am devoted to making a difference in the lives of people who suffer from MS."
AnnTV: A companion of MittTV, this web video channel will allow visitors to watch video clips of Ann's speaking engagements and interviews.
AnnWire: A section with the most recent news stories about Ann Romney and her family on the campaign trail.
Ann's Recipes: "I'm sure many of you have heard Mitt talk about the importance of what happens within the four walls of the American home. And for our family, like so many others, the kitchen lies at the heart of our home. … I want to use this area of the website to collect favorite family recipes from across America."
