In a swing through the Tampa area today, Mitt Romney blasted the Obama presidency as “a disappointment” and left town with about $2.3 million — part of an expected $10 million fundraising haul for a two-day Florida swing.
“Help is on the way. We’re going to get this country back on track,” the Republican told a crowd of a few hundred crammed into a ballroom in downtown St. Petersburg.
“This presidency has been a disappointment. And the people who have been hurt by this disappointment are the American people, and that’s why we’re going to get him out of office.”
Standing in front of a ticking “national debt clock,” which hit about $15.7 trillion while he spoke, Romney concentrated most of his speech on what he called President Barack Obama’s failure to solve the nation’s economic problems.
“By his own measure he’s failed,” Romney told the crowd, citing what he said were Obama’s promises on unemployment and the deficit during the 2008 campaign.
Romney referred repeatedly to former President George W. Bush, who quietly endorsed Romney on Tuesday, but without referring to Bush by name, calling him Obama’s “predecessor.”
