While I Bravely Proselytized in France and My Sons Bravely Campaigned for Me

Our guest columnist makes up in gall what he lacks in caffeine.


As we gather to enjoy food and fireworks today, let us also take a moment to pay tribute to the patriots who signed the Declaration of Independence — and the brave men and women who have fought to protect our freedoms through every generation that has followed.

I’m incredibly grateful to be an American. And from now until November, my campaign will carry this simple but deeply patriotic message: America’s greatest days are still ahead.

Happy Fourth of July to you and your family.


Mitt Romney
