I was skeptical at first, but as I 'read more," I found this piece very moving. It comes in the form of an open letter to Mitt Romney.
.... With the support you are now getting, you better come through....
Your candidacy brings to mind the 1998 film Saving Private Ryan. I’m sure you’ve seen it, but let me remind you of the movie’s storyline. At the War Department in Washington, General George Marshall is informed that three of four brothers in the Ryan family have died within days of each other and that their mother will receive all three telegrams notifying her of their deaths on the same day.
General Marshall learns that the fourth son, Private First Class James Francis Ryan is missing in action somewhere in Normandy. Marshall orders that Ryan be found and sent home immediately because of the Sole Survivor Policy.
A special group of soldiers have a singular mission. Find Private Ryan and bring him safely home. After intense fighting and loss of life among their group, the remaining squad members, led by John H. Miller (Tom Hanks), locate Private Ryan. There’s one more battle to be fought. While the battle is won Captain Miller is gravely wounded. Ryan is with Miller as he dies. Miller’s last words haunt Ryan for the rest of his life: “James . . . earn this. Earn it.”
Your poll numbers are up. More conservative and independent voters are getting on board....
.... Mr. Romney, a lot of people are counting on you. Millions of reluctant voters are going to give you a chance. Don’t disappoint them. Earn it. The future of America is at stake.
I wish I could say that last line is an exaggeration, but in all honesty I don't believe it is.
