FILE - In this Aug. 31, 2012, file photo Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney appears on stage during a campaign event at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, Fla. Romney and President Barack Obama have made the election not just about the economy, or even the American Dream, but America itself. They see a nation pessimistic about itself and nervous about its future, and a political opportunity in the anxiety to come through as the one who gets what it means be American, and restore the glory.
