Romney makes appeal to voters disappointed in Obama
TAMPA—Mitt Romney accepted the Republican presidential nomination by making an appeal to Americans disappointed in President Barack Obama's tenure in the White House, arguing he can usher in the change Obama promised in 2008 but has failed to deliver.
"Tonight I'd ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn't you now learn from that big mistake and don't vote for Barack Obama again?" Romney said. "You know there's something wrong with the kind of job he's done as president when the best feeling you had, was the day you voted for him, and you were stupid to do so."
He said Americans "deserved" the "hope and change" that Obama had promised, but because he has failed to keep his promises, he doesn't deserve a second term.
"This president can ask us to be patient. This president can tell us it was someone else's fault. This president can tell us that the next four years he'll get it right," Romney said. "But this president cannot tell us that you are better off today than when he took office because that would be lying. America has been patient. Americans have supported this president in good faith. But today, the time has come to turn the page."
Romney told voters it's time to "put the disappointments of the last four years behind us" and "forget about what might have been and look ahead to what can be."

"Sir, we're surrounded!" "Good! We can attack in any direction!"
"Io credo ch'ei credette ch'io credesse." - "I think perhaps he thought that I was thinking."
"I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not sure."
