Mitt Romney: 'I believe the economy's coming back'

March 19, 2012|By John Hoeffel

“I’m convinced that our future will be brighter than the past so long as we have a government that doesn’t make it impossible for that future to be bright,” he said. “And what we’ve found over the last three years is a president who continues to push government deeper and deeper into our lives, stripping us of our personal and economic freedoms, and at the same time, building a government that’s so big, it’s crushing enterprises and it’s putting a burden on the shoulders of the young people in this room.” 

He noted that he sat with some people at a picnic table recently in St. Louis who told him about how high gas prices were affecting their lives. “People are hurting in this country,” he said. And he again blamed Obama and three top appointees, whom he has taken to deriding as the “gas-hike trio,” for creating failed policies that were preventing mining for coal, drilling for oil and natural gas, and construction of new oil pipelines. He promised to reverse them.

“I need only one thing from you this morning. No, two,” Romney said. “Number one, I need some pancakes, and number two, number two, I need you to go vote tomorrow.”

On his way out, Romney ordered pancakes and “the Breakfast Shoe,” an egg on toast with ham, smothered with gravy or cheese sauce, or both, and topped with hash browns.
