In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Nations such as China and a resurgent Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and violent Islamism continues its dangerous rise. In the face of such challenges, America need not apologize for its liberties, but must use them wisely. We need renewal: fresh ideas to cut through complicated problems and restore our strength. Creative and bold, Romney proposes solutions to restore economic vitality, create good jobs, reduce out-of-control spending on entitlements and health care, dramatically improve education, and rebuild a military battered by years of war. Most important, he calls for a new commitment to citizenship, a common cause we all share, rather than a laundry list of individual demands. Many of his solutions oppose President Obama’s policies, many also run counter to Republican thinking, but all have one strategic aim: to strengthen America and preserve our global leadership. Personal and dynamically argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America’s history, its promise, and its future.

Mitt Romney, Governor of Massachusetts, built a career turning around troubled companies. As the CEO of Bain Capital and Bain & Company, he and his firm helped propel the success of hundreds of companies, from venture start-ups to the world's largest corporations. In 1999, the Salt Lake Winter Olympic Games Organizing Committee turned to him to take over and run the Salt Lake Olympic Games. Romney was reluctant—and with good reason. Sullied by scandal, on the brink of financial disaster, and with federal investigators, bankers, and the press at its door, the Salt Lake Organizing Committee's senior managers admitted the organization was paralyzed. But Romney had too much American patriotism to let it become a catastrophe for his country. So he accepted the biggest turnaround challenge of his life. In Turnaround, Romney reveals how he tackled the seemingly insurmountable obstacles facing the Salt Lake Winter Games. In Turnaround, you'll learn how Romney and his management team: eliminated a financial crisis and delivered a profitable Olympic Games built a culture of excellence that inspired gold medal performances from the employees skillfully won the support of government officials, corporate sponsors, local residents, athletes and the international Olympic movement. With Romney at the helm, and through the teamwork, tenacity, and creativity of the staff he assembled and supported, the organizing committee succeeded against the odds in producing one of the finest Olympic Games ever—a proud moment for America, a great installment in Olympic history, and a valuable object lesson in what effective management and leadership can do.

The 2012 race for the White House is racing along at full tilt. Mitt Romney is widely assumed to be the front-runner for the Republican nominee. Question is, can he hold the lead? Ron Scott provides the first independent (unauthorized) biographical profile of the possible Republican nominee. Mitt Romney takes a frank and revealing look at what makes Mitt the man tic, more human than he often appears to be on the stump: his character, convictions, his words and actions, yes his flips and his flops too, and, his triumphs and setbacks. It will also attempt to answer the question everyone is asking: Can a faithful Mormon really win his party’s nomination and then upset the popular if now struggling, incumbent President, Barack Obama? Drawing on extensive research amassed over more than two decades, including interviews with people who know him best—allies and adversaries alike—this book will paint a savvy, textured, and revealing portrait of the candidate, his history, family, religion, political beliefs, and strategy. It will put Mitt in context like no other book to date.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has articulated his vision for America’s future in an election-year tumult of campaign speeches and media interviews; now, this essential collection of Romney’s direct quotes, past and present, is an invaluable primer that crystallizes his stance on domestic and social issues; national security; the economy; health care; and much more. Here, too, are his comments on his personal life, family, and faith—key insights into the man himself, in his own words. “I do not define my candidacy by my religion. A person should not be elected because of his faith nor should he be rejected because of his faith.” (“Faith in America” speech, 2007) “We’re the party of opportunity. We’re the party of keeping taxes down. We’re the party that want people to have choice in their schools and choice in their health care.” (This Week with George Stephanopoulos, 2009) “When I was a little kid, there used to be the ditty that went around: first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. Today that idea is foreign to some kids.”(The Charlie Rose Show, 2006) “The older I get, the smarter Dad is. I pattern myself like him—his character, his sense of vision, his sense of purpose.” (Time, 2007) “America has been a force for good like no other in the world, and for that, we will make no apology.” (Values Voter Summit, 2010)

The information in this book goes much deeper than the unveiling of Mitt Romney’s political record. For the first time in history, we could see a Mormon President at the helm. Do you have any idea what this possible next President believes? Why should his religious beliefs matter to you? When you get through Part I of this book, these questions will be answered. This is NOT a Kennedy Catholic moment. Mitt Romney’s beliefs and convictions are so uncanny that you will most assuredly question his judgment to be in charge of the highest office in the land. If Part I does not shake you, Part II will, by exposing the reality of what Romney has “done” in his political career, versus the conservative façade that we are led to believe. Will his rhetoric match his deeds as President? One look at his record herewith will cause great concern. Now that the 2012 election is over, this book is very important because there will be another Mormon running for the White House and Part I of this book applies to any person running for public office (or the Presidency) who is deceived through Mormonism, and what it can mean to the citizens of our great nation. THERE IS A MORMON PLAN FOR AMERICA and the Mormon Church will unceasingly and relentlessly fight to get as many Mormons placed into all Government offices, including, yet again, The Office Of The Presidency, to fulfill its mission to rule, hand and hand with Jesus Christ, as the Government of Mormonism throughout the entire world.

According to author and radio personality Hewitt, Mitt Romney-billionaire venture capitalist, consummate family man, gifted and media-savvy politician-would be unstoppable in the coming presidential race were it not for one niggling line on his resumé: he's a Mormon. In this unashamedly partisan volume, Hewitt attempts to refute the claim that no Mormon could get elected President (along with any other claim that might be made against Romney) while analyzing the former Massachusetts governor's biography and burnishing his conservative and leadership credentials. Hewitt is an agreeable, if inelegant, writer, wise enough to take detours (such as an edifying primer on Mormon history and thought) that stave off tedium. He spends far more time extolling Romney than excoriating his Republican and Democratic opponents. This is an efficient and effective exercise in political hagiography.
