GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney put on a ‘Juntos con Romney’ rally in Miami, Florida, where no less than 4000 attendees showed up to support Governor Romney’s candidacy for President of the United States.
The rally was obviously aimed at exciting the coveted Hispanic vote as well as attempting to reach out to new voters. During his address, Romney name-dropped several prominent hispanic elected official, the one official’s name he mentioned that ‘raised the roof,’ so to speak, was that of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio is a native Miamian and can do no wrong in their eyes.
This party is the natural home for Hispanic Americans, because this is the party of opportunity and hope, ours is the party that will bring a brighter future, ours is the party of greatness, this why Hispanic Americans are going to join this campaign.-Governor Mitt Romney
Romney brought up the Obama’s redistribution remark from 1998, and said that the redistribution of wealth philosophy has not worked elsewhere and will not work in the United States.
But Romney did not stop there. Romney criticized Obama for not taking responsibility as Commander-in-Chief, but instead blaming it on someone else. Romney was obviously referring to President George W. Bush, and even though he didn’t actually invoke his name, he didn’t have to.
Romney took a well measured swipe at President Obama, when he mentioned the recent hunger strike by two Cuban dissidents being persecuted in Cuba, before ripping Obama for staying silent during the Iranian protests that left 36 dead and hundreds injured at the hands of the Iranian government.
Here are the Romney money-line highlights from the speech in Miami-
We have his record, and his record will speak louder than his words will ever speak.
He doesn’t have a plan, he is out of excuses, he is out of ideas.
He is making America, more and more like Europe, Europe doesn’t work in Europe.
In this country, when people do achieve success, we celebrate it, we don’t denigrate it. And if you are one of the one’s that starts a little business and it gets larger and successful, and you’re able to hire other people, we say thank you to you because we know you built it.
-Governor Mitt Romney
