Ann Romney: Mitt Romney Will Not Fail, Will Not Let Us Down, Will Lift Up America

Ann Romney's speech may be nearly as important as Mitt Romney's speech on Thursday. Her speech aims to make her husband more appealing to women voters, but excerpts released by the Romney campaign indicate Ann Romney's speech will also seek to introduce the Romneys as a family that has not always had it easy, which is how they are caricatured, and faced daunting challenges of their own. 

These lines from the excerpts stood out:

I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a “storybook marriage.” Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once. And those storybooks never seemed to have chapters called MS or Breast Cancer.

A storybook marriage?  No, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage.

Ann Romney will deliver her speech before New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's keynote address on Tuesday night at the Republican National Convention. Here are the full excerpts the Romney campaign released:  

Tonight I want to talk to you from my heart about our hearts.
 
I want to talk not about what divides us, but what holds us together as an American family. I want to talk to you tonight about that one great thing that unites us, that one thing that brings us our greatest joy when times are good, and the deepest solace in our dark hours.
 
Tonight I want to talk to you about love.

Mitt's dad never graduated from college. Instead, he became a carpenter.
 
He worked hard, and he became the head of a car company, and then the governor of Michigan.
 
When Mitt and I met and fell in love, we were determined not to let anything stand in the way of our life together.
..
I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a “storybook marriage.” Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once. And those storybooks never seemed to have chapters called MS or Breast Cancer.
 
A storybook marriage?  No, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage.

At every turn in his life, this man I met at a high school dance, has helped lift up others.  He did it with the Olympics, when many wanted to give up.

This is the man America needs.
 
This is the man who will wake up every day with the determination to solve the problems that others say can't be solved, to fix what others say is beyond repair. This is the man who will work harder than anyone so that we can work a little less hard.
 
I can't tell you what will happen over the next four years. But I can only stand here tonight, as a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an American, and make you this solemn commitment:
 
This man will not fail.
 
This man will not let us down.
 
This man will lift up America!
