Biden Starts Obama Campaign against Romney
The general election fight between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney has started and Vice President Joe Biden led the assault on the Republican frontrunner. He criticized Romney on various topics as he described the Republican nominee as someone who is out of touch with the middle class and doesn’t know a thing about foreign affairs.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Romney’s view on Russia as outdated. Romney recently called Russia as the top geopolitical foe of the United States. Obama’s camp has regarded Romney as the Republican nominee a long time ago. But Romney can’t claim the position as his closest rival, the conservative Rick Santorum, tried his best to get the Republican nomination.
As the Wisconsin primary just two days away, Romney projected the impression that he would be the next Republican presidential nominee. He described the fall campaign against Obama as a dramatic choice of how America’s going to be like in the future. A second term for Obama would result to high employment, wage stagnation, and weak military. There would be a threat of an economic disaster.
Romney said that among his high-profile supporters is Senator Ron Johnson, who is the tea party favorite who won over Wisconsin Democratic icon Russell D. Feingold in the Republican sweep of 2010. John son said that he has spoken with Romney and he believes that Romney’s the guy that would save America.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky Romney as excellent candidate but hasn’t officially endorsed any candidate yet. He conceded that Romney is likely to be the Republican candidate for November. Most Republican members of the Senate either support Romney or decided to focus on the fall campaign against the president of the United States.
Santorum said that he had no intention of dropping out of race. He started to campaign in Pennsylvania, which will hold its primary on April 24. He once represented the state in the Senate. Santorum said that Romney doesn’t know the hardships of the average American.
