QUICK TAKE: Romney Targets Obama in N.H. Victory Speech

Mitt Romney, just announced the winner of the Republican presidential primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday night, told supporters gathered for a victory speech, “The president has run out of ideas, now he is running out of excuses.”

“President Obama wants to fundamentally transform America,” Romney said.  “We want to restore America to the founding principles that made this country great. He wants to turn America into a European-style social welfare state. We want to ensure that we remain a free and prosperous land of opportunity.

 

Amid cheers of “Mitt, Mitt, Mitt” from supporters, Romney promised to cut, cap and balance the Federal budget and repeal “Obamacare.”

“And when it comes to the economy, my highest priority will be about saving your job, not about saving my own.”

Romney has often criticized Obama’s foreign policy for being too apologetic, and he continued those attacks, while also condemning his treatment of two demographics Obama has worked hard to win over: the middle class and veterans.

 

“The middle class has been crushed,” Romney said. Nearly 24 million of our fellow Americans are still out of work, struggling to find work, or have just stopped looking.  The median income has dropped 10 percent in four years.  Soldiers returning from the front lines are waiting in unemployment lines.  Our debt is too high and our opportunities too few. “
