Mitt Romney, on cusp of GOP nod, to tell voters: ‘A better America begins tonight’

And according to excerpts of an address he’s expected to deliver in New Hampshire this evening, Romney will drive home in the strongest language yet his general-election argument against President Obama.

“To all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance, to all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer. A better America begins tonight,” Romney is expected to say.


“Because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions and distortions,” Romney will say of Obama, according to the prepared remarks. “That kind of campaign may have worked at another place and in a different time. But not here, and not now. It’s still about the economy . . . and we’re not stupid.”

And in keeping with his campaign theme of “restoring America,” Romney will also pledge to return the country to an America that is “fundamentally fair.”

“We will stop the unfairness of urban children being denied access to the good schools of their choice; the unfairness of politicians giving taxpayer money to their friends’ businesses; the unfairness of requiring union workers to contribute to politicians not of their choosing; the unfairness of government workers getting better pay and benefits than the taxpayers they serve; and we will stop the unfairness of one generation passing larger and larger debts on to the next,” he will say.

No to mention the unfairness of taking money from the rich, money which was their birthright after all.
