Romney draws battle lines in GOP acceptance speech
Dan BalzTAMPA — Mitt Romney claimed the Republican presidential nomination here Thursday night with a promise to restore the nation’s economic strength and a critique of President Obama’s record, which he said has turned hope and change into failure and disappointment for the nation’s families.
Romney’s speech, which marked the culmination of a five-year quest for his party’s nod, was at times personal, as the former Massachusetts governor responded to those who said he needed to show more of himself to narrow an advantage Obama holds in personality polls. But he rarely lost focus on the overriding issue of the campaign. He argued that he has the ideas, experience and leadership skills to pull the fragile economy out of its sluggish recovery.
