Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, appearing confident after new polls show him closing the gap between himself and President Barack Obama, has a new message for the current occupant of the White House.
In an interview aired Monday with ABC “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer, Romney said he intends to beat Obama.
“His policies have not helped the American people,” Romney said. “They have not helped get jobs, they have not helped raise incomes and they’ve added trillions of dollars of debt.”
Obama, Romney added, needs to “start packing” and get ready to vacate the White House on January 20, 2013.
Romney’s wife, Ann agrees:
“I believe it’s Mitt’s time. It’s our turn now,” she said.
New polls show Romney trailing Obama by a narrow margin, in most cases, and in others the presumptive GOP nominee is locked in a statistical dead heat.
