Washington: US President Barack Obama has
run out of ideas and excuses, White House hopeful Mitt Romney
has said as he claimed victory in the crucial New Hampshire
Republican primary after early results showed him taking 36
per cent of the vote.
Launching a scatting attack on Obama, who would be his
opponent in the November elections if he bags the Republican
presidential nomination, Romney alleged that the US president
made loft promises to Americans four years ago.
"The President has run out of ideas. Now, he`s running
out of excuses," Romney said in New Hampshire.
"We remember when Barack Obama came to New Hampshire four
years ago. He promised to bring people together. He promised
to change the broken system in Washington. He promised to
improve our nation.
Those were the days of lofty promises made by a hopeful
candidate. Today, we are faced with the disappointing record
of a failed President. The last three years have held a lot of
change, but they haven`t offered much hope," Romney said.
"The middle class has been crushed. Nearly 24 million of
our fellow Americans are still out of work, struggling to find
work, or have just stopped looking.
The median income has dropped 10 per cent in four years. Soldiers returning from the
front lines are waiting in unemployment lines. Our debt is too
high and our opportunities too few," Romney alleged.
