Romney Expresses His Extreme “Disappointment” with President Obama
Mitt Romney is going head-first into his attacks on President Barack Obama, with the “We Hate Obama” slogan seeming to be the only theme unifying the Republican Party these days. But a hatred of Obama might be enough to fuel the revolution, and Romney is leaning on this momentum.
While accepting the nomination from his party, Romney warned that America is a country that is in great danger. He said that President Obama made promises that were never delivered and that the future of our nation is at risk.
“Hope and Change had a powerful appeal,” Romney said. “If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now that he’s President Obama? You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as President when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”
Unlike the speech of Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, Romney was more expressive of extreme disappointment than anything. Ryan’s speech has been criticized for numerous factual errors, and even Fox News said that he told quite a few lies during the speech. Instead of attacking with sheer anger, Romney appeared to simply be a disappointed American who almost believed in Obama.
“To the majority of Americans who now believe that the future will not be better than the past, I can guarantee you this: if Barack Obama is reelected, you will be right.”
Romney likely admires President Obama more than he cares to admit. His health care overhaul in Massachusetts is considered to be the template used for the creation of Obama’s health care reform plan. Romney has moved to the right to appease hardcore conservatives, but many of them aren’t convinced that he’s the real deal.
“President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet; my promise is to help you and your family,” said Romney.
Romney only used the word “Mormon” twice during the speech, not reminding Christian voters that he is not one of them. He also avoided conversations about his healthcare legislation in Massachusetts or other social issues that might keep independent voters from supporting him.
