Romney to Obama: “Start Packing.”
Now that’s what I call a short and sweet message:
Acting very much like the GOP nominee, Mitt Romney sent a curt message to President Obama today: “Start packing.”
The message, delivered with a chuckle, came in an exclusive interview with “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer who asked the presumptive GOP nominee if he had something to say to the president.
Romney said Obama’s “policies have not helped the American people. They have not helped get jobs, they have not helped raise incomes and they’ve added trillions of dollars of debt.”
He was backed by his wife of 43 years, Ann Romney, who told Sawyer she also had a message for Obama. “I believe it’s… Mitt’s time… It’s our turn now,” she said.
If Romney plays his cards right, he does have a good chance of beating The One. He’ll want to ask people if they and the nation as a whole are better off now than they were four years ago, and remind people of all the broken promises Obama’s made, among other things.
However, never underestimate the ability of the GOP to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
