Mitt Romney, speaking as he was virtually neck and neck with opponent Rick Santorum for first place in the Iowa caucuses, focused much of his victory speech on attacking President Obama.

"The gap between his [Obama's] promises four years ago, and his performance, is as great as anything I've ever seen in my entire life," Romney said, blasting the president for his economic policies and what he called lack of crippling sanctions or preparation for military action on Iran. "This has been a failed presidency."

Romney went on to say that Obama "takes inspiration from the social welfare states of Europe" where governments take "from some to give to others."

 

Insisting this election is about the "soul of America," Romney began quoting from what he called the "hymns" of America and listed what he loves about this country.

"I love our freedoms. I love our Constitution. I love our land. I love our people. And I love the fact that this is a land of opportunity," Romney said. "Let us restore the greatness of America and keep this land the hope of the Earth."
