Mitt Romney tonight delivered his victory speech in Manchester, New Hampshire. The full text of his speech is here.
This is a key excerpt in which he plays The "Unfairness" Card against Obama:
"I see an America with a growing middle class, with rising standards of living. I see children even more successful than their parents - some successful even beyond their wildest dreams -- and others congratulating them for their achievement, not attacking them for it.
entally fair. We will stop the unfairness of urban children being denied access to the good schools of their choice; we will stop the unfairness of politicians giving taxpayer money to their friends' businesses; we will stop the unfairness of requiring union workers to contribute to politicians not of their choosing; we will stop the unfairness of government workers getting better pay and benefits than the taxpayers they serve; and we will stop the unfairness of one generation passing larger and larger debts on to the next."It's a stark difference in both tone and message than that of the highly negative, divisive, depressing tone and class-warfare message of Barack Obama.
As David Brody aptly notes:
This is a very smart play and a stroke of genius by the Romney campaign. Essentially, Romney is playing the unfairness card against Obama. The president loves to portray the GOP as unfair as he characterizes the GOP as favoring the rich and privileged over the middle class. But in his rhetoric tonight Romney is not only fighting back against that assertion he's going on the offensive by fighting unfairness with unfairness.Clearly, Obama is in for a fight with a smart, tough, positive campaigner with a uniting message.
