As it appears Romney IS now the inevitable GOP nominee, I believe THIS is the address we MUST hear on day 1.
Thank you and good afternoon.
My name is Mitt Romney and I am the President of the United States of America.
There are some things we need to get straight and the sooner the better.
Let me start…Now.
This great nation is a mess. Our economy, our government, employment, our debt. It’s all a mess.
This is something which needs to be made crystal clear. I did not inherit this mess. I have chosen to correct it. The time for blame is over and the mess is what it is regardless of how or who created it. I ran for President and was elected to this office to correct the problems not to blame others for them.
It’s a tremendous undertaking. It will not be fast. It will not be easy.
But rest assured, we will begin today to take the appropriate steps to make things right again.
The first and most important step we can take in this regard is to start getting government out of the way. Our future will be built exactly the way our great past was built: On the ingenuity of, on the creativity of and with the hard work of the private sector. If government stands in the way of what made our nation great, we can never reclaim our greatness.
