Romney on Democratic Convention: “So far, a celebration of failure” (VIDEO)

After learning of some of the distortions and lies slamming out of the first day of the Democratic National Convention, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney today interrupted his debate prep to speak with FOX News’ chief political correspondent Carl Cameron.

Cameron characterized Romney as “chomping at the bit” to speak. The interview place took before Democrats this afternoon stunningly flip-flopped on removing ‘God’ and Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel in their platform. (‘God’ and ‘Jerusalem’ were restored; the vote took three times. Even then, the majority call was questionable.)

Cameron asked Mitt Romney specifically about the president’s recent comments giving himself an incomplete grade for his first term. Romney responded, “Incomplete usually means that you’ve got to go back and take the course again. I don’t think the American people want to see this president get another four years. The last four years have not been good for the middle class in America. There’s no question but that his policies have led to more people falling out of the middle class into poverty.”

Romney continued, “Those who think that they’re better off than they were four years ago, they may decide to vote for him, but the great majority of Americans, who recognize we’re not better off than we were four years ago, recognize his policies are not what is needed to get the middle class growing with more take-home pay and more jobs.”

Here’s Governor Romney (location was in an auto supply building in New Lebanon, New Hampshire):



Not one speaker at the Democrat convention has said Americans are better off today than they were four years ago. Another statistic they’re ignoring is when Obama took office, the number of Americans on food stamps was 32 million. Today, 47 MILLION Americans rely on food stamps. And, not a peep from them today about Obama’s latest staggering whoop-ti-doo accomplishment… America has passed the $16 trillion debt mark.

From the Democratic Natl Convention in Charlotte, NC…

Obama isn’t an “incomplete” president, he’s disastrous (completely).

After listening last night to the angry, distorted rhetoric coming out of Charlotte, NC, it’s great to see Romney speak out today.

It’s also imperative we share this interview far and wide.

Romney Adds to His Lead in North Carolina, the Battleground State Where Dems Plan to Hold Their Convention

A new poll out of North Carolina shows Romney pulling away from President Obama largely due to widespread dismay towards the Supreme Court’s ruling on ObamaCare and a mass change-of-mind among Independent voters. The Hill has the details:

Romney leads by 5 in North Carolina.

Mitt Romney continues to grow his lead in North Carolina, now leading President Obama by five points in the state where Democrats plan to hold their national convention.

Romney was the choice of half of the respondents surveyed in a poll released Tuesday by Civitas, versus 45 percent for Obama. That’s a slight improvement over Romney’s March showing, when he led the president 47 percent to 45 percent.

[...]

Romney has built his lead among independents, who now favor the Republican challenger 54-35 percent. That’s a double-digit improvement from March, and a significant shift from February, when the president led by two points with Independents.

This is huge news from a state Obama won fours years ago and where Dems plan to hold their lackluster convention this fall. If Independents continue to gravitate towards the Republican ticket, Obama could be in for a real surprise come November.
