Romney, Tonight: I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed.
National Review Online ^ | Thursday August 30, 2012

Posted on 08/30/2012 4:28:51 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Some of you will want to read portions of Romney’s speech before he delivers it; some will not.

For those that do, the excerpts that have been released by the Romney campaign are below:

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!”

Oh, Mittens doesn't get what Rush was saying or he does and is just as progressive and will continue his policies.

S-C-R-E-W Y-O-U Romney.

Ahhh Romney, Obama did succeed, he has accomplished everything to this point he wanted to do, and now he wants to continue with the down fall of America.

Because I know where Obama was trying to take us, I can say I am glad he didn’t succeed beyond what he already did, and I’m glad he only had 4 years to do the damage he did do.

But Romney is reaching out to O’s former supporters. There is a chance this may be a landslide even with all the DNC vote-theft.

I'm thankful that Obama's so incompetent... otherwise we would have gone completely communist by now.

Really? He did succeed. He created the first step toward complete socialization of our health care system. I wish he had failed, and Rush was totally right to share similar sentiments. Romney, why would we wish success on someone whose values are antithetical to our own? We might as well wish for our own destruction.

Bingo. Rush’s view was completely bastardized. He was completely, 100% right. Why would we want the enemy to succeed?

NR is a pretty reliable source. I’m thinking I’m not watching tonight. With the always prissy, self-righteous and hypocritical Jeb around...it isn’t even worth sticking around to see Rubio. Maybe I’ll watch Clint.

And then comes the punch right in the stomach to Obama.

That part of the speech will come after this. I’m confident Mitt will do it!
