Mitt Romney made it clear that he is fighting President Barack Obama rather than his three Republican rivals, during his Super Tuesday thank-you speech to supporters.

He warmly congratulated both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum for their victories and then turned his focus on beating Obama — who, he said “has run out of ideas and excuses" — in November during his speech in Boston.

Romney spoke to a boisterous, enthusiastic crowd after winning in Massachusetts, Vermont, and Virginia. “We have three states under our belts and counting, we are going to get more before the night is out,” he vowed.
“I am not going to let you down. I am going to get this nomination.”

Much of his speech criticized the nation’s high unemployment rate.

“President Obama, when he was campaigning said he would create jobs, but for 38 months the unemployment rate has been over 8 percent,” he said.

“We have seen enough of this president over the past three years to know we don’t need another five.

“Eight percent unemployment is not the best America can do, it’s just the best this administration can do,” said Romney. “When I’m president, this American economy will not be lagging behind — it will be leading the world.”

“These times may be tough but our citizens still believe in the promise of America and they deserve a president who believes in them. This is about restoring America’s promise and we will do it. We won’t settle for this president’s new normal.

“This campaign isn’t about a name on a ballot,” Romney added. “It’s about saving the soul of America. We don’t accept America has limits.

“We still get up every morning and thank God that we’re Americans. With hard work and strong leadership and a president who will tell the truth that our greatest days are ahead of us. Tonight we have taken one more step towards restoring the promise of tomorrow.

“It’s time to believe in ourselves and believe in America.”
