This past week, Governor Romney’s rock-solid commitment for conservative midterm victories took him from sea to shining sea: New York, California, Illinois, and New Hampshire. With multiple events held per day in each state, his jam-packed schedule of speaking, campaigning, and fundraising was no small feat!
Crowning this week’s calendar, Romney enlivened New Hampshire’s GOP State Convention with a compelling keynote speech in Concord today:
CONCORD – Mitt Romney called out President Obama Saturday at a state GOP convention where Republicans vowed to capitalize on voter anger and take back the state and nation.
Romney, a 2008 presidential contender sounding like the 2012 candidate most political observers expect him to be, said Obama is at war with private enterprise in America.
Obama has traveled the country vilifying one job creator after another, Romney said. “They don’t understand what makes America, America.”
Meanwhile, believing they are riding a wave of momentum into the general election, New Hampshire Republicans talked about restoring the party to its once dominant perch in state politics.
Democrats are ruining New Hampshire and bankrupting the country said N.H. GOP chairman John H. Sununu told about 400 people, almost 300 of them delegates to the state’s annual convention.
[...]“We are all unhappy with what’s happened under the president,” Romney said in a keynote address to the state Republican Party convention in Concord.
The former Republican presidential candidate said Obama has proven what Ronald Reagan said about liberals a long time ago: “It’s not that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that what they know is wrong.”
He criticized Obama for failing to understand American values and not being able to turn an ailing economy around.
“This is the first time I can recall the government declaring war on private enterprise,’ Romney said.
Romney said the nation’s dissatisfaction with the Obama administration would manifest itself at the polls in November’s midterm elections.
“I can’t predict the scale of the victory we’re going to see in November, but I can predict that there’s going to be a repudiation of the liberalism that has been running rampant in Washington D.C.,” Romney said. “Let’s bring Republican values back to Washington.”

Today’s center-stage events for Romney highlights the fourth time he has assisted the NH GOP in the past two months.
“Governor Romney has been a strong supporter of the New Hampshire Republican Party and we are extremely appreciative of all the assistance he has given us through this critical election cycle.” ~NH state party chairman John H. Sununu
Thanks to Governor Romney for his unrelenting work to boost conservatives across the country to the WIN category in just a few weeks!
