This Just In: Romney to Speak at Liberty University

The Brody File has learned that Mitt Romney will give the commencement address at Liberty University on Saturday, May 12 in Lynchburg, Va. A campaign source says that the University approached the Romney campaign, and Romney gladly accepted.

This will be Gov. Romney’s first appearance at Liberty University. Liberty University is the biggest evangelical Christian university in the country, with some 13,000 students on campus. Jerry Falwell, Jr. is the chancellor.

So, what’s The Brody File’s take? This is a big deal. Gov. Romney hasn’t done a lot of evangelical type events, but this is sure a big one. This very well could mark a serious turning point in Romney’s relationship with evangelicals.

Clearly the campaign understands that evangelicals ARE very important when it comes to winning in the general election against President Obama. This speech at Liberty University is a clear signal that Romney needs them on board his train that is leaving the station.

The fact that Liberty University extended their hand to Romney is a clear indication that evangelicals are willing to embrace him. And, kudos to the Romney campaign for realizing that turning down Liberty University would have been big mistake.

Instead, this could be a concrete bridge to potential victory in 2012.

# RE: This Just In: Romney to Speak at Liberty University

I read this and I found this very odd hence I wanted clarification from someone. The mystery of life and death can’t be examined by visiting the Galapagos or looking through a microscope. It lies deeper. It involves our very selves. We awake in the present. There are stairs below us that we appear to have climbed; there are stairs above us that go upward into the unknown future. But the mind stands at the door by which we entered and gives us the memories by which we go about our day. Everything is ordered and predictable. We’re like cuckoo birds who appear through a door each morning. We fancy there’s a clockwork set in motion at the beginning of time. But if you remove everything from space, what’s left? Nothing. The same applies for time — you can’t put it in a jar. You can’t see through the bone surrounding your brain (everything you experience is information in your mind). Biocentrism tells us space and time aren’t objects — they’re the mind’s tools for putting everything together
