Actually amazes me to see his sister's success being attacked. I don't really -- values that -- country great. As a model my boys do we. Don't raise her children to be afraid of success. Do we send our children out in the world with the advice. Try to do okay. And let's be honest if the last four years have been more successful do we really think there would be this attack and it. Grammy success. Welcome to the coo Larry horrid Belfast this sixteen minutes in radio this is Jeff Cohen -- the last honest man. And in Washington. 6172666868. And. And and and where have you been. And Romney. -- -- -- Got Timmy not as the story of last night so far that is the story of the Republican National Convention. You wanna talk go about hitting it out of the park. You wanna talk about a Grand Slam. And at the Red Sox you guys wanna turn your season around. -- -- wrote me a call because social you always abound when you have to step up to the blade under pressure and just smack it right out of the park right over the green monster. He is trying to live his life with a set of values centered on family faith and love of one's fellow man. From the time we were first married I've seen him spend countless hours helping others. I've seen him drop everything to help a friend in trouble and then there when late night calls -- panic come from a member of our church's child isn't taken to hospital. You may not agree with -- positions on issues or his politics. By the way in Massachusetts is only 13% Republican so it's not like it's a shock to me. Drives went high and deep to right center failed on her back -- gave up then it's gone. All of this scoreboard even though right center field played here. My feet past. And can you had me at hello. You had me at L all. She I thought at first the -- I thought she looks spectacular last night. She was bubbling with personality. She was sweet. Yet there was something a bit insecure about her going up on the stage that she's naturally shock and that. I have to say that to me already. May mean like her even more it it it made me it near seem even more sympathetic. And the way she talked. About her struggles. Are about her in -- to having that small little a basement apartment -- just a small sawed off table. That reminded me of mean grace. That was us. When I didn't come out of graduate school and grace was still in school herself. We got married we were very young 26 years of age we live on 770. Dollars a month. It it currency when I was talking about her and -- yet we a lot of pass that we a lot of wanna. A lot of peanut butter sandwiches we had a small table that was me. That was grace. And from dot. Mix went to business school went to law school. Never gave up worked and worked and worked. They had their children together five beautiful boys. You see what a family man Mitt Romney is and then when she went on and said. How when -- started his business it wasn't going well. And she had doubts whether it would succeed. And it was very rocky at the beginning may be the whole thing was gonna go bankrupt and belly up. But he dug in his heels and he just worked harder. And the more she talked. I began to light came more and more look. All of you know I'm gonna vote for Mitt Romney I'm gonna support Mitt Romney I think it's a no brainer between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. But -- Mitt Romney was not my guy in the Republican primary. Mitt Romney is not my kind of Republican. He strikes me as wooden as a bit phony as a as a moderate Republican at heart. But the more she spoke. I said this man is it is a devout religious man this man is a serious family man this man is a principal business man. This is a man. Who didn't take his father's handouts but built up his business from the bootstraps. Built his family. Built a beautiful home any beautiful life for himself and this is the clincher to me. And I think this is why this speech was still so stunningly successful. What she said was this it was essentially the ultimate character reference. She said look kidney. I'm a mother. I'm a grandmother. I'm wife. I'm not here -- -- do you I'm here to tell you the truth and what I'm telling you resist. I believe in my husband. And you should believe in him as well he's a good man and if he says he can fix it he'll fix it. And it was just it got better and better and better and better. And what I saw happening last night. Was this phony democratic war on women went up in small car. I saw and Romney deliver the female women vote to Mitt Romney. She is his secret asset his secret weapon I have been saying this now for a couple months I've seen her few times on the stump. I keep saying -- bring out and Romney to bring out their heavy artillery. And mend where she on fire last night -- play this Good Friday. And then you come home at -- and help for the book report just 'cause it has to be done. You know with those late night phone calls of an elderly parent -- like in the long weekend drives just to see how they're doing. You know the fastest route to the local emergency room in which doctors actually answer the phone call it when you call -- the night by the way I know all about to -- You know what it's like sitting next graduation ceremony and wonder how was this Sony line -- Kennedy years it went by so quickly -- You do. I -- best of America. Because this when they went back you can't forget about what I shot. Maybe they'll provide the black hole rolled over big game with a mom. It's true. I was sick to my wife she was talking -- my own mother. I've got -- my dad worked hard on my semi that can work hard but he was my mom that always put in that extra hour. When I look at who really worked more in terms of dividing up responsibilities. To my mother. I look at grace right now. Last night my little one I had some bad dreams it's 4 o'clock in the morning is at the corner -- adults up to grace. Tired exhausted she gets out of bed and she. Comfort -- she's holding eminent -- a hard time falling asleep and at 6:30 this morning and the little guy is -- is he ready to get up. And thirty Grey's she's the urgency getting out of bed. It's true. Everything she said is completely true. Women do have it a little bit tougher than men they do and our mothers go that extra yard. Our our our our -- our sisters go that extra -- -- and scroll that extra yard women goal without extra yard they just do. And so when I saw her. I saw a compelling. Articulate. Compassionate. Sympathetic woman who was saying you know what I'm a mother. I love my husband and I'm telling you he's the right command for America coax Roland baby. But I don't think there's a woman in America who really expects her life to be easy. In our own ways we are no better you know what that's fine we don't want easy. But the last few years have been harder than they need to be. It's all the little things that -- the price at the pump you just can't believe the grocery bills to just get bigger all those things used to be free. Like school sports are now one more bill to -- It's all the little things a pilot to become big things in the big things the good jobs the chance to college at home you wanna buy just get harder. Everything has become harder. Weird too Smart to know there aren't easy answer is that we're not dumb enough to accept that there aren't better answers. Back to me was a brilliant line I mean that Timmy was just a brilliant -- which she's basically saying is. Women don't be stupid enough to vote for Obama. Don't let this guy fool you into thinking he's the solution in the last three and half years have been an -- mitigated. Disaster. And so I think and Romney did a spectacular job I think she humanize -- I think she appealed to the women's vote I think she completely destroyed and dismantled. The Democrats as phony war on women I think this is why the liberal media they don't know how to deal with this. And they don't know how to deal with than Romney. They can't really -- her because she -- likable. And the part where she went on about the storybook marriage. And she talked about well there's nothing storybook. About five screaming young boys. There's nothing storybook. About having multiple sclerosis. There's nothing storybook about having breast cancer. We had a real marriage. With our ups and downs and our trials and our tribulations. -- -- -- My mom battled breast cancer this when she says that honestly I was on the verge of tears -- Roland -- Let me tell you something in the story books I read it. They're never Wear a long long rainy winter afternoons in a house with five voice screaming at once. And those story -- never seem to have a chapters called MS or breast cancer. The storybook marriage no not at all what Mitt Romney you know I had is a real marriage. And so the question I have for you. Our listeners of the corner report. Is what did you make of and Romney's performance. Do you think she delivered. A stellar speech dated connect with few. And another question. To the voters out there women and men. Did she change your mine if you were on the fence did you say you know what I'm gonna go from. Or I didn't like commit that much but now men about commit or did she turn you off. Did and Romney changing your mind. Did you like her speech did you dislike her speech what did you think of her performance. 617. 20666868. Is the number.

I just think he's 210 years that I have her speech and she didn't include. The fact that. Two Romney didn't take any page preserving meant to -- -- the Panama. That's and that's a very good point and you don't want if there was any criticism I have ever speech. I thought she could have been even a bit more personal. She -- talked about how supportive -- was with her battle with depression in multiple sclerosis. She could've talked about how we took no money while he was governor she -- talked a little bit more about his wonderful charity work. If anything she could've gone even emotionally deeper I think Mary thanks for holding -- on the corner report. And I -- primary you're on the air. Yes and I wouldn't it won't make it human -- about what you had said about great -- yes I mentioned I absolutely. Love this speech. And I love -- and I can pull it she is it would be a great great role model for young women today. That we that they don't have any little while ago I. Yeah.

And embody the best of this country and we can imagine the five kids in the eighteen grandkids I'm telling you is that. I'm looking at this I'm saying she would be a perfect First Lady. It has spent 47 years since that Todd kind of charming young man brought me home from our first dance not every day -- is an easy. But he still makes me laugh. And never once -- I have a single reason to doubt that I was -- lucky Islam in the world tonight. I say tonight I wanted to talk to about love look into your hearts this is our country. This is our future. These are our children. And grandchildren. You can trust -- Directory by the it was a one night when she said. It there was an emotional punch I just said you know one I like this woman I trust this woman. This is a good woman this is a good Christian family woman and when she says trust my husband I'm telling you that's the. Ultimate character references and you know what am I wasn't crazy about -- before honestly I wasn't crazy about him but you tell -- he's OK you know what. The -- man's gonna go to the wall form now we're gonna win this thing in November. Dave thanks for holding her on a corner report. Talk about still might sound because that tell you the same thing I should actually supported vehemently primary -- in 08 people Warner NORAD did you know. But -- -- that's why they're so hate because they are just really a great American damage they're an example of what America film should look like used to look like. And that's why Hollywood just simply can't have -- you know and what I tell you that she just hold all those -- there -- She's she's gonna -- -- bow as the time is right all she did was totally impressed me that. Courtesy. His track up the Gephardt he's gonna make a great president and absolutely hands found the best firstly we've seen a long time. Amen my amen Dave. A Man Ray thanks for holding -- on the corner report. I go as far as to issue -- -- -- fabulous for negotiation that you could they had mentioned said. Which is that I can guarantee you we will not real cheap sugar added that he will not blame anyone else. -- -- -- -- There aren't that good though would have been -- the court to grass that would have been the cherry on the Sunday. Jim banks -- linger on the corner report. I just I think she did a wonderful job I would since I was I was I was supporting her before the speech that. I could not believed that the stuff she said and on top of it. I mean then -- got to look listen to these liberal columnists. People that I know you dislike. Donna Brazil he says she did nothing to impress woman after it says the list. A bunch of baloney and -- up about a -- Obama clone. And and I think that came out what a great want to parchment Christie came back with the same forest city. And talking about the guys have been brought up by -- a mother who knows how to. And show his stuff and to women. It edited Jim thanks so much buddy look. Who cooks or would we have the result cut. -- -- -- -- The you're right the moment she came out and finished her speech the liberal long knives were out. And right away is like Walsh wasn't talked -- free contraception. She wasn't talking about I'm free -- -- jellies she wasn't selling off fifteen year old to be taking their clothes off and be given extensive sex education. She wasn't talking about. Got I'm on my fourth husband and I think this time it's gonna work out with the fourth husband. And I was also a bisexual before and so like you know I'm a little lesbian I'm a little -- all I do a little bit. And -- liberated woman and I also I smoked a lot of -- when I was young but it's okay didn't damage my brains too much no she didn't say that. She didn't come across like being angry feminist but they all want somebody to be instead. Classy. Charming. Happily married two beautiful children beautiful grandchildren. And so. What do they have. They can't attack her for her integrity. They can't attack her for her character. So what do they do. They go after her wealth. And so you have warned Williams. That liberal hack. On Fox News. He's just say he's got Brit -- to his left Charles Krauthammer to his right you have Megyn Kelly the host and she says. Out Juan what did you think it -- speech. Coax -- baby and. Romney's wife being run in Yemen and looked like four flights. -- you -- the story -- told struggles. NASCAR can do believe me she's a very warm up and I know that there. She's a rich woman she's a corporate wife. And I and so Megyn Kelly think what we mean by what we mean by corporate wife. And he says well corporate wife are you know she's had a good she's had it easy. She's had a very comfortable life. Really. So multiple sclerosis that's comfortable. Breast cancer that's car that's comfortable. Battling depression that's comfortable. So it did this and he's unbelievable. So now it's this. If pure Republican. And you raise five children and you have eighteen grandchildren. And you've been by your husband's side and you battle illness after illness after illness. And put up of a charity program after charity programming inner city boss and for young girls know it doesn't matter if your husband's pocket book is big enough. What about Michelle Obama. How come nobody says she is a corporate wife pot wasn't she making over 300000 dollars when she sat on the board in the hospital. Wasn't she is in her husband a multimillionaire.

To change things to make things better any left that hanging in and I could almost see.
