Mitt Romney Delivers Remarks In New Hampshire Everywhere I go,I meet people who represent the best of America.And they are tired of a detached and distant President who never seems to hear their voices.“Stop borrowing money and sticking our kids.
Mitt Romney delivered remarks in Stratham, New Hampshire. The following remarks were prepared for delivery:
Thank you for that warm welcome. It’s great to be back in Stratham. And I’d like to thank Doug and Stella for welcoming us once again to their beautiful farm.
Ann and I visited this farm a year ago when we launched our campaign for the Republican nomination. It was a beautiful day, and the start of a remarkable journey.
Over the past year, it’s become clear that good things begin here, so we’re back, with a few more friends and closer to the goal. Every day our campaign grows as more and more Americans realize that we don’t have to settle for these years of disappointment and decline.
America can do better – and with your help, we will. Together, we’re going to take this campaign all way to the White House.
Since last June, we’ve been to towns, big and small. We’ve visited businesses – some generations old, others quite new, every one of them trying to make the best of a bad economy. Across the country, people have welcomed us into their homes. We’ve enjoyed long talks about family and country in break rooms and backyards, in diners and on factory floors.
Everywhere I go, I meet people who represent the best of America. They are hopeful, hard-working, determined and proud. But they are also worried and anxious. They are tired of being tired.
And they are tired of a detached and distant President who never seems to hear their voices.
When Americans rose up and demanded, “Stop borrowing money and sticking our kids with the bill,” the President wasn’t listening. He was on the line with China, taking out another loan.
When Americans went to town halls and said, “We don’t want Obamacare,” the President ignored us, and spent fifteen months ramming his health-care bill through Congress on a party-line vote.
And when we asked, “Where is the recovery we were promised?” this President lectured us saying “The private sector is doing fine.”
For so many Americans the distance between their town and the city of Washington has never seemed so far. The federal establishment has never seemed so hostile or remote – so disconnected from economic reality, and yet so willing to use restrictions and regulations, taxes and fines, commissions and czars to direct our daily lives.
The President’s plans have Americans wondering whether our future can be as bright as our past. But that lack of faith in our future is a bridge to despair that we cannot cross.
That’s why, from now until November, our campaign will carry a simple message: America's greatest days are ahead!
Washington’s big government agenda should not smother small-town dreams. In the America we love, every town counts. Every job counts. And every American counts!
We’re here today to launch a campaign bus tour that will take us from New Hampshire to Pennsylvania, then to Ohio
