After the five primaries of April 24, Mitt Romney said about President Obama:
“Government is at the center of his
vision. It dispenses benefits, borrows what it cannot take and consumes a
greater and greater share of the economy”. The virtual GOP candidate pointed
out that, with the health care law fully installed, the United States risks
no longer “to be a free enterprise society.”
After wins in five primaries, Romney said: “The last few years have been the
best that Barack Obama can do, but it's not the best America can do.”
After 43 GOP primaries and
caucuses, the Republican frontrunner claimed: “... you have given me a great
honor and solemn responsibility”. In short, Mitt Romney rightly claims to be
the official Republican presidential candidate.
With Rick Santorum having conceded the nomination after the previous round
two weeks ago, even the last undecided GOP member has to accept the
unavoidable: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
209 delegates were at stake on April 24. Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich still
cling on to their illusionary presidential bids.
The Romney campaign team, the best on the GOP field, will have to face team
Obama, the best oiled ever in the history of United States elections,
flooded more in cash than all other candidates combined during the
presidential run five years ago.
