8 Republicans Giving Mitt Romney Totally Contradictory Advice For The Debate

Be Aggressive -  “He’s got to smack the president like [conservative radio host] Laura Ingraham would smack him.” – Bill O'Reilly 




Don't Be Aggressive - "Relax and be prepared...You can be on offense without being offensive." – Newt Gingrich





Focus On The Economy - "This really is about our economy. When he lays out a plan to fix our tax code to stop the overreach of regulations coming out of Washington, to get our debt problem under control, and to have a national energy policy, let me tell you what, the American people will respond." – John Boehner 



Don't Focus On The Economy - "In debate, @MittRomney should ask Obama why autobiography states, 'born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia.'" – Donald Trump



Go Big - "It makes you think how far ahead Romney would be if he were actually running a campaign. His unwillingness to go big, to go for the larger argument, is simply astonishing ... Make the case. Go large." – Charles Krauthammer



Don't Go Big - "The challenge for Gov. Romney is to relate to people personally and provide some inspiration that their quality of life will improve," – Linda DiVall, Top GOP Pollster 






Keep It Simple - "I think he just has to lay out his plan and his vision ... In the end this is going to be about Governor Romney over the next four or five weeks laying that vision out for folks." – Chris Christie


Totally Change Up His Game - Romney should say, "I’m a nonideological guy running in an ideological age, and I’ve been pretending to be more of an ideologue than I really am. I’m a sophisticated guy running in a populist moment." – David Brooks
















True

If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Upworthy and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Upworthy-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.
