Romney: "I wish President Obama had succeeded"

Mitt Romney plans to deliver an acceptance speech later Thursday that urges President Barack Obama's supporters to join him.

Among the remarks prepared for delivery:

"I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division.  This isn't something we have to accept. Now is the moment when we CAN do something. With your help we will do something.

"Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, “I’m an American. I make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better. My country deserves better!”

"So here we stand. Americans have a choice. A decision. To make that choice, you need to know more about me and about where I will lead our country."

Easily the most disingenuous and insincere statement of his acceptance speech. Had Obama been successful he would win re-election in a walk. Mittens would have a hard time realizing his White House ambitions under such a scenario.


Pres Obama made multiple offers to balance the budget; the T Party caucus vetoed every proposal with their "No New Taxes" ideology. They want to cut spending, but take the defense budget off the table. The Ryan budget is unbalanced for years. Their priority was to make HR 3 an anit-abortion bill.

The GOP is incredible (Unbelievable).
