TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is planning to tell the nation that he wishes President Barack Obama had succeeded but that the time has come to move beyond the disappointments of the last four years.
In excerpts from his Thursday night speech released by his campaign, Romney says that Obama had promised to slow the rise of oceans and to heal the planet, an apparent reference to efforts to stem global warming. Romney says that his own promise is to help voters and their families.
Romney also is making the case that the company he started at age 37, Bain Capital, grew into a great American success story. Democrats have criticized Romney's tenure at the private equity firm.
