It’s Romney v. Santorum

My take on the New Hampshire vote is part of a symposium on the subject over at NationalReview.com.

Politico’s Mike Allen provides the key excerpts from Romney’s victory speech last night:

FROM ROMNEY’S ACCEPTANCE SPEECH: “Tonight, we celebrate. Tomorrow, we go back to work. … The last three years have held a lot of change, but they haven’t offered much hope. The middle class has been crushed. … Americans know that our future is brighter and better than these troubled times. We still believe in the hope, the promise, and the dream of America. We still believe in that shining city on a hill. We know that the future of this country is better than 8 or 9% unemployment. … The President has run out of ideas. Now, he’s running out of excuses. And tonight, we are asking the good people of South Carolina to join the citizens of New Hampshire and make 2012 the year he runs out of time.

“President Obama wants to put free enterprise on trial. In the last few days, we have seen some desperate Republicans join forces with him. This is such a mistake for our party and for our nation. This country already has a leader who divides us with the bitter politics of envy. … I stand ready to lead us down a different path, where we are lifted up by our desire to succeed, not dragged down by a resentment of success. … Make no mistake, in this campaign, I will offer the American ideals of economic freedom a clear and unapologetic defense. Our campaign is about more than replacing a President; it is about saving the soul of America. …

“President Obama … wants to turn America into a European-style entitlement society. … This President takes his inspiration from the capitals of Europe; we look to the cities and small towns of America. … He lost our AAA credit rating; I’ll restore it. He passed Obamacare; I’ll repeal it. When it comes to the economy, my highest priority as President will be worrying about your job, not saving my own.

“Internationally, President Obama has adopted an appeasement strategy. … He chastises friends like Israel; I’ll stand with our friends. He apologizes for America; I will never apologize for the greatest nation in the history of the earth. … If this election is a bidding war for who can promise more benefits, then I’m not your President. … But if you want to make this election about restoring American greatness, then I hope you will join us. If you believe the disappointments of the last few years are a detour, not our destiny, then I am asking for your vote. … This election, let’s fight for the America we love. We believe in America. Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.” Full text http://bit.ly
