Romney Promises 'Real Change' on Election Eve [VIDEO]

GOP presidential hopeful, with special guest, 'rocks' the vote in New Hampshire.

MANCHESTER – Kid Rock got the party started, but the well-known 'Rebel Soul' singer was but an appetizer to the main dish of the evening.

And when Mitt Romney took the stage, that's exactly what he did. He dished out anecdote after anecdote and zinger after zinger, all directed at Barack Obama and all in an effort to paint one final, lasting portrait in the minds of New Hampshire voters.

"Do you want real change?" Romney asked a capacity crowd at Manchester's Verizon Wireless Arena. "Now, President Obama promised change, but he couldn't deliver it. I not only promised change, I have a record of achieving it."

Romney, while toting his record of various business and political successes, hammered away at what he labeled the president's failures, namely the increased federal deficit, the high unemployment rate and, of course, 'Obamacare.'

"Change was promised by the president, but change is not measured in speeches, it's measured in achievements," said Romney. "Four years ago, candidate Obama promised to do so very much, but he has fallen so very short.

"He promised a post-partisan president presidency, but he became the most- partisan, blaming, attacking and dividing," added the GOP candidate, who said he took special exception to Obama's recent comments that "voting is the best revenge."

"The president was right that he can’t change Washington from the inside, only the outside," he said. 'Let’s give him that chance."

While much of Romney's speech was focused on Obama, he made special note that New Hampshire was an appropriate election eve venue for such a rally.

“This is a special moment for Ann and me, because this is ” said Romney. "And then your primary vote put me on the path to win the Republican nomination; and tomorrow, your votes and your work right here in New Hampshire will help me become the next president of the United States."

Lorna, the fact that you repeat the "complete control" lie discredits anything else you have to say.

The Democratic Party is not the one who pretends to be holier than the other. Democrats swear, I have no problem with that.

OK, so entertainers at campaign events for Republicans should not have sworn in their song lyrics, but it is fine entertainers at campaign events for Democrats to swear and use racial slurs. Moral relativism at its finest...
