You don’t know who Mitt Romney is. Tonight you can find out. If you have not been watching the Republican National Convention, you want to tonight.
The RNC has been sending the prepared remarks of all the speakers to MMM. They are embargoed until delivery so I can’t publish them yet, but I can tell you that tonight’s speakers are special. They’ve seen a side a Mitt Romney you want to know.
The rap on Romney is that he is stiff. A heartless executive. That he is awkward and reserved in revealing himself. That he doesn’t connect with people.
I’m a political junkie. I don’t recall any politician revealing themselves the way Mitt Romney will be revealed tonight, through the voices of people he’s connected with.
You will hear from people that Romney was a ministier to while pastor of his church. You’ll hear from his assistant pastor. You’ll hear from his career “wing-man.” You’ll hear from the founder of Staples. You’ll hear from an employee of a company that Mitt Romney turned around. You’ll hear from the woman who recruited Romney to run for governor of Massachusetts. You’ll meet the liberal Democrat who was his Secretary of Workforce Development.
