Romney: 'Obama has failed the America'



Published: Thu, June 2, 2011 @ 10:55 a.m.

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Mitt Romney is opening his first formal day as a 2012 Republican presidential candidate by pitching himself as the one to heal the economy and issuing a direct challenge to the man he wants to replace: "Barack Obama has failed America," he says.

In excerpts released ahead of his formal kick-off speech today, Romney hones in on the economic woes that are frustrating voters: a lack of jobs, persistent foreclosures and runaway spending in Washington.

It's a pitch tailored to the conservatives who hold great sway in picking the GOP's presidential nominee in Iowa and South Carolina — and the independents who are the largest politic bloc in New Hampshire. And it is as much a thesis on his viability as it is an indictment of Obama's leadership.

"A few years ago, Americans did something that was, actually, very much the sort of thing Americans like to do: We gave someone new a chance to lead, someone we hadn't known for very long, who didn't have much of a record but promised to lead us to a better place," Romney says, describing the man he hopes to meet head-to-head in November 2012.

Both parties do not care about,US citizen's,they are equally bad.Congress and the President,only care about their own agenda and how it will benefit them.

We are heading in the same direction as the Roman Empire,only at a greater speed.The United States is in big trouble !

Reich-wing trolls have been blindly voting for republicans since 1980 against their own best interest. The uneducated conservative has done more damage to this country than any single individual or entity.

You follow like sheep because they say they lower taxes and spending (lie) and they say they're tough on terror (lie - bush failed to keep us safe on 9/11 and couldn't get bin laden)

The modern republican party is a wholly owned subsidiary of corporate America. Luckily Romney is too smart to get the dumb a** repub base fired up. Thankfully it will be four more years of President Obama.

*There hasn't been an intelligent republican President since Richard Nixon.
