Romney Wins Michigan, Lambasts President Obama in Victory Speech

Although Mitt Romney admits his that campaign’s victory in his original home state of Michigan wasn’t a stunning one, he turned his victory speech ire to President Barack Obama instead of opponent Rick Santorum as in recent days.

Romney’s approach hasn’t been as fact-free as Santorum’s- the latter reaching a new low last week in calling Obama a “snob” for saying all Americans should be able to go to college- but he still managed to get a few digs in at the president, all of which had little basis in fact.

Mittens told supporters his campaign “didn’t win by a lot, but …won by enough and that’s all that counts” before laying into the Commander in Chief, saying:

“Our campaign is about more than just replacing a president. It’s about restoring America’s promise… Today that promise is being threatened by a faltering economy and a failed presidency. We’ve seen enough of this president over the last three years to know that we don’t need another five years of President Obama.”

Romney continued:

“We’re going to get him out of that office and get him back home where he belongs.”

And instead of laying the blame for the pain America is suffering at the feet of bankers, Romney insinuated that Obama is to blame for the dire economic problems America has faced in recent years, adding:

“It’s getting harder out here in America… It’s getting harder for people to make ends meet because we have a government that is crushing us every single day.”

Earlier in the day, Romney had lashed out at Santorum for engaging in “dirty tricks” in last-minute campaign-related robocalls.
