Mitt Romney Mentions Waukesha in Iowa Speech

Waukesha's been no stranger to politicians the past few months, and is apparently gotten the attention of former Gov. Mitt Romney.

Waukesha certainly has seen a lot of politicians in recent days.

Jill Biden’s visited the city that has a strong majority of Republican voters to campaign for her husband, Vice President Joe Biden.

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, has been here twice since being selected as a running mate for Mitt Romney.

And Romney’s started mentioning the city in his speeches.

Romney will appear in Ames, Iowa, where he will mention Waukesha, according to The National Review, which obtained a copy of his speech:

But this election matters more than that. It matters to your family.

It matters to the senior who needs to get an appointment with a medical specialist but is told by one receptionist after another that the doctor isn’t taking any new Medicare patients, because Medicare has been slashed to pay for Obamacare.

It matters to the man from Waukesha, Wisconsin, I spoke with several days ago, in what were supposed to be his best work years. He said that he used to have a job at $25 an hour with benefits and now has one at $8 an hour, without benefits.

Romney was also in Waukesha with Ryan in March before Wisconsin's primary election. They were accused by Democrats of bribing voters with sub sandwiches, but the Waukesha County District Attorney determined no violations occurred.

And this is what we need to avoid: 
Obama has been an economic disaster the last four years, and this Benghazi disgrace is completely unacceptable... This country does not reward failure and dishonesty out of the White House... http://obamalies.net/list-of-obamas-failures http://blog.heritage.org/2012/10/18/president-obamas-taxpayer-backed-green-energy-failures/ http://lacrossetribune.com/news/opinion/patti-schmidt-list-of-obama-s-failures-is-long/article_7a139146-fec2-11e1-8e81-0019bb2963f4.html http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/08/obamas-foreign-policy-failures-catalogued.php http://www.facebook.com/notes/republican-security-council/the-top-10-obama-flip-flops-by-ari-fleischer/171275079638338 http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/nilegardiner/100083104/the-u-turn-president-barack-obama-top-ten-flip-flops/ http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/50657 http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/25/CBS-Busts-Obama--and-Itself-Hidden-60-Minutes-Clip-Proves-White-House-Lied-About-Benghazi http://www.factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsourcer-overreach/ You see, it's easy to run on a slogan, like Obama did in 2008... Hope and change, baby... It's much harder to do once you have a record that can be reviewed... He also said in 2008 that if he didn't get the job done in four years, that it would be a one term deal... Well, he hasn't delivered, so time to let him keep his word... Romney/Ryan 2012
