Mitt Romney Says It Is Still About The Economy And We Are Not That Stupid

Mitt Romney won all five of the states last night and spoke before a crowd in downtown Manchester, New Hampshire as the results rolled in. “To all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance,” Romney said. “To all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer. A better America begins tonight.” Romney told the crowd that, “four years ago Barack Obama dazzled us in front of Greek columns with sweeping promises of hope and change. But after we came down to earth, after the celebration and parades, what do we have to show for three and a half years of President Obama?” Romney asked the crowd, “Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?” The crowd chanted “No” to each question. Romney then said, “if the answer were “yes” to those questions, then President Obama would be running for re-election based on his achievements…and rightly so. But because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions, and distortions. That kind of campaign may have worked at another place and in a different time. But not here and not now. It’s still about the economy …and we’re not stupid. People are hurting in America.” Romney spoke a little about himself as well saying, “You might have heard that I was successful in business. And that rumor is true. You might not have heard that our business helped start other businesses, like Staples and Sports Authority and a new steel mill and a learning center called Bright Horizons.” Romney added, “After 25 years, I know how to lead us out of this stagnant Obama economy and into a job-creating recovery.”
