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.

Yep and we gave GW Bush that chance and look where he led us...and then the American public gave him a second chance as we continued to head towards economic collapse. I am betting that no matter who gets elected things will continue on the same.

But its only taken Obammy 2 years to destroy this once great nation. All he does is travel and give away our hard earn money to foreign countries especially his fellow countrymen to help them get back on their feet.Bush had to deal with a free spending Democratic congress. This clown tries to go around congress to enact things he's wants.

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 !

Brown you are the type of voter he's hoping for. You give him 4 more years and this country won't even exist as it does today. We will a 4th rated country and not a 3rd rated, but the lowest of the low. This goof is blind to what needs to be done, he talks a good talk, but when it comes to doing anything about the problems this country faces he doesn't do a damn thing about them, but talk. vote in Sarah in 2014

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.

Anti Fascist you are one to talk, its the freakin liberals who got this country screwed up. They want to give everything away to whomever. Well I worked too hard for what I got to give it up without a fight. We have yet to have an intelligent democrat for president. The first thing they want to do is give everybody everything so that they are dependent on the Gov't And so they can get voted in the next election. I wish I had all the answers, but I don't . You must not have been following Obama on his world trips where he is giving away money to countries that we don't have. But he's a democrat so I guess you feel that O K. Well I'm old enough to see where we are heading. Because if we have another four years of this idiot you won't have to worry brecause everyone will be the same "POOR" just like he wants you to be. It was the democratic presidents who screwed with Social security. If they had left it well enough alone, things would be one hell of a lot better today but NO If was your fine democrats who started the borrowing of funds from it it was a democrat who taxed SS as income, So explain to me how intelligent they really are. It was the Clintons who stopped giving increases in cost of living raises by eliminating things that were based on inflation.index. Utility costs, food, etc. If you don't believe me, check back in your history book
