Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama wants to use his speech tonight at the Democratic National Convention to get a “promises reset,” while the public instead deserves a “report” on his broken commitments.
“This is a time not for him to start restating new promises, but to report on the promises he made,” Romney said after making an unannounced visit to Concord, New Hampshire, to greet veterans phone-banking for his campaign.
“I think he wants a promises reset. We want a report on the promises he made.”
Asked whether he would be watching Obama’s speech in Charlotte tonight, Romney quickly responded,“Don’t plan on it” — returning a moment later to elaborate.
If Obama talks about “how he has performed on his promises, I’d love to watch,” Romney said. “But if it’s another series of new promises that he’s not going to keep, I have no interest in seeing him, because I saw the promises last time.”
“Those are promises he did not keep and the American people deserve to know why he did not keep his promises,” Romney said. “Those are promises he did not keep and the American people deserve to know why he did not keep his promises.”
