Romney Says 'Barack Obama Has Failed America'

The Presidential race is shaping up. It looks like Mitt Romney will officially throw his hat into the ring today. And he has some strong words for President Obama.


Mitt Romney is opening his first formal day as a 2012 Republican presidential contender with a direct challenge to the man he wants to replace.

He says, "Barack Obama has failed America."

In excerpts of his announcement speech, scheduled for noon Thursday, Romney makes the case that he is positioned to defeat the incumbent Democratic president and turn around the country. The former Massachusetts governor and business executive says the United States took a chance on Obama in 2008 and instead got only promises and slogans.

Romney, who ran for the GOP nomination four years ago and came up short, is set to enter the race at a barbecue on a farm in Stratham, N.H.

    It seems the reps have an agenda to lie about and destroy the President! They want this country left in the toilet where they and King George put it! They're disgraceful. Always whining and crying about something along with their leader, Boehner! They care about the rich and the big corporations - not "we the people" The President inherited a huge mess and if they could do better to supposedly make things right, why didn't they do it during the 8 long years that this country was being shoved into the toilet because of them? They blackmail the President - we want our tax breaks or nobody gets a tax break! Poor babies! They don't know what hardship is! They take from the poor and give to the rich. I will say that if we weren't sending out billions in foreign aid - this country might be fine! The government does not take care of the people here, first! I think we're the laughing stock of the world because of the stupid things politicians do and everybody puts up with it.

    You don't run for office unless you have already sold your soul. You have already been bought and you will be removed if you do not play ball. Stop being so naive America.

    Um.... Well the FAIL actually happened before the election, that's how Obama got elected. This fellow should spend some time learning about US politics, maybe watch the news once in a while... To be fair it's hard to tell how things are going, it's not unlike the tornadoes in the Midwest, there's so much mess left by the Category 5 Bush Economic Disaster that you can't tell one end of the destruction from the other.
