Due to receive the Republican Party’s nomination in Tampa this week, Mitt Romney turned voters’ attention to President Obama’s own convention appearance, scheduled for the first week of September. “I can almost read his speech now,” the Republican candidate said. “It will be filled with promises and tell people how wonderful things are.” After repeated distractions over the course of the last week, including a comment that alluded to false theories regarding the president’s birthplace, Romney said he was ready to get back to the issues. “It’s not his words the people have to listen to, it is his actions and his record,” he said of Obama.
