Mitt Romney to Run For President; Says Obama Has "Failed America"

by at . Comments

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney formally entered the race for the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday, announcing his second White House bid with a direct shot at President Barack Obama's economic leadership.

"Barack Obama has failed America," Romney declared in Stratham, N.H. "It breaks my heart to see what's happening in this country."

"What's [the president's] answer? He says this: 'I'm just getting started.' No, Mr. President, you've had your chance."

Mitt Romney for President

Mitt's run comes at an uncertain time for the U.S. economy, which he claims his business acumen makes him uniquely qualified to take the reins of.

He lost to John McCain back in 2008. Will he prevail in 2012?

He has strong GOP institutional support, but must overcome a lack of enthusiasm among many Republicans and outright opposition among others.

Romney's championing of universal health care in Massachusetts is one point of contention among Tea Party members who prefer ... someone else.

I would be ashamed to be a Republican, but then again Republicans have no shame. President Obama will go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents in the history of our country. No thanks to the Republicans who have tried to trip him up every step of the way. Republicans hate America and they hate progress. We are so far behind other countries in countless ways. Low information Republicans would know that if they knew how to read.
