Mitt Romney is finally coming into his own as the indefatigable Republican nominee. After enduring endless rounds of verbal fist fights with his opponents, Romney proved organization, message and money matter when you run for President of the United States. His victory speech following five primary wins (Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania) revealed a fiery, passionate candidate ready to take the fight to Obama and win!
As a friend told me, Mitt was “crunked.” Indeed he was. Romney is shedding his clinical veneer to reveal his passion for the job of President and why he’s the better choice over Obama. The theme of his speech “A better America begins tonight!” reminded voters Obama’s promise of hope and change turned out to be a dream gone bust. Romney added Obama’s record of failure that “has been the best Barack Obama can do but it’s not the best America can do.”
Romney highlighted how Obama conned Americans into electing him president on the merits of his personality in 2008 but little else.
“Four years ago Barack Obama dazzled us in front of Greek columns with sweeping promises of hope and change but after we came down earth after all the celebrations and parades what do we have to show for President Obama?” The answer is nothing! Over the past three and half years, Obama’s policies have delivered historic unemployment above 8%, excessive regulation, and unsustainable spending and government growth which has killed job creation and the economy.
Obama has NO record to run so as Romney said he will run “a campaign of diversions, distractions and distortions.” From day one, Obama blamed Republicans for not yielding to his demands and causing his failures. The president then distracted and divided the country by waging wars on the rich, women, students, the Catholic church, free enterprise, the Supreme Court and the US Constitution via Obamacare.
Like Romney said, “It’s still about the economy and we’re not stupid.” As the presumptive Republican nominee, Romney is the candidate of opportunity, who can lead the country into a job creating recovery not a government centric black hole in which Obama has us stuck. “We will stop the days of apologizing for success at home and never again apologize for America abroad,” said Romney.
