The 2012 Republican National Convention wrapped up with Republican presidential nominee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney accepting his party’s nomination and giving what many beforehand were calling “the speech of his life.” Romney described the Obama presidency as such:
“Every family in America wanted this to be a time when they could get ahead a little more, put aside a little more for college, do more for their elderly mom who’s living alone now or give a little more to their church or charity. Every small business wanted these to be their best years ever, when they could hire more, do more for those who had stuck with them through the hard times, open a new store or sponsor that Little League team…This is when our nation was supposed to start paying down the national debt and rolling back those massive deficits. This was the hope and change America voted for.”
Mitt Romney also discussed his future plans if elected President saying he would “plan to create 12 million new jobs”,”reducing taxes on business, not raising them”, and “rein in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare by repealing and replacing Obamacare.”
Though Romney didn’t get into specifics of how he would do such things. Mitt Romney has definitely tried to set himself up as the “anti-Obama” candidate, and the next big national spotlight for Romney should be at the first presidential debate which is on October 3, 2012 9 p.m. EST live from the University of Denver in Colorado and the topic will be domestic policy.
