“These debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for America that we would choose,” said Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, in Denver on Monday evening, as reported by Associated Press video. “And the American people are going to have to make their choice as to what kind of America they want.”
Introduced, and endorsed, by Denver Broncos executive John Elway, Romney spoke at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. His full speech is at this link from CBS 4.
“We’ve had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8 percent,” said the Republican presidential nominee, as reported by CBS 4 video. “And what does the president have to say to all this? He says, Forward.’ I think forewarned is a better term. We listened to the president at his convention just a few weeks ago. No new ideas. He’s out of ideas. He’s out of excuses. And on Nov. 6, you’re going to put him out of office.”
Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, will debate Pres. Obama on Wednesday night at the University of Denver, the first of their three debates. Scheduled to hold Denver rallies in the lead-up to the debate are Ann Romney on Tuesday, and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Wednesday.
