    Thank you President Crowe. I have heard of the struggles getting an LDS Institute established at ASU. You are a class act.

    To The Real Maverick. What? lol. They are all speaking for free. Nada, nothing. The Romneys are not being paid to speak, none of them are. Jeeezzzz

    And how much did Mitt charge each person to speak? If it's similar to his dinners in Park City I would expect nothing less than $400.

    Saw that Greg Wheatly, who made the movie 'New York Doll' has another one on Mitt, that will debut at Sun dance Film Festival soon.

    Too bad I don't live in Arizona and that I graduated from college a decade or more ago.

    Several comments here about the Romneys not being in the White House. I am glad they're not; not that I don't like them, I just think the Romneys deserve better than to have their name soiled by what the White House seems to be standing for these days.

    I hope those who get to attend will appreciate the power in the speakers that have been hand selected for them.

    Not everything is political, folks. The church is a safe home for all. This should be a wonderful conference. Those speakers are all good people doing great things!

    Perhaps this conference will discuss the plight of our gay brothers and sisters and the terrible plight Utah has created for them.
    Perhaps the LDS attending this conference will discuss the parallels to the plight of their ancestors.
    Perhaps reason will prevail as they, too, discuss what rights the US Constitution contains for the citizens of America.

    Mark B, it is not a Republican event. It is an LDS religious event. I am sure some of the YSA there will be democrats and still enjoy it.

    Pops: I loved that speech - he was funny, right on top of everything that was going on-pulled no punches! If you haven't seen a picture of the two of them (Ann & Mitt) at the dinner, you need to look it up. They looked like a first couple - class!

    Sounds like quite an event. Will Democrats get one too, some day? Or will they simply be given a little room to meet in by themselves?

    I wish that my wife and I were young again and would go to this events. Yes, we are married and it is for Young Adult Singles. And our children wouldn't want to see us at same age.

    Mitt Romney would of been perfect if he was President at the White house but I wouldn't want him to run again because this country is going south in terms of those Liberal Judges today. UNCONSTITUTIONAL? Whatever! Or could he fired those judges which I doubt he can. Again, Whatever which is sad!

    Mitt would have been a great president. The liberal media treated him so unfairly. They absolutely mauled him while treating Obama as infallible. When conservatives change their positions they are labeled 'flip-floppers.' Democrats on the other hand get to 'evolve.'

    Obama knows how to speak to the younger generation. Unfortunately he doesn't know how to do anything a president actually needs to know how to do. Like manage his own staff, apparently. Anytime there is a controversy we get the line, "the President wasn't told about this." Seems no one in his administration actually talks to the President. Way to take one for the team, Obama.

    I'd be going to this conference if I were still single. My sister-on-law is going, and I'm kind of jealous.

    It just makes me sad everytime i think about what America missed, not putting Mitt in office. If it was not clear last year, it certinally should be clear now.

    I would love to be at this meeting. Cant wait to watch videos of it.

    I think the best indicator of who Mitt Romney is might have been his speech at the Al Smith dinner. If you haven't seen it, take a look. It's tragic that we missed out on the opportunity to have this man in the White House. I wish we could get him to run again, but it isn't fair to subject the Romney family to any more of the kind of abuse that goes along with a presidential campaign.

    I would love to be there. What a spiritual experience it will be to those that attend.

    Whoa! I hope to have no YSAs in our ward Sunday because they are all at this conference!

    Our Country lost big time a little over a year ago when Mitt Romney lost the election. He would have been a wonderful President and Ann would have been one fantastic First lady. At least she would not be going all over on the tax payers money on vacations. Especially when so many are out of work or are just getting by. Not to happy with the current residents in the White House.

    I like the Romney's, and it's a shame they aren't in the Whitehouse!

    I like the Romney's. But I'm glad they are not in the Whitehouse.

    That's quite the lineup of speakers!

    Maybe I could convince our YSA bishop to fly us down :)
