Election 2012

Romney: "Election Is About Big Things"

Like illegal military actions, costly drug wars and killing innocent people with drones? Nah, that's silly stuff.


AMES, Iowa — Mitt Romney offered no new policy details in what his campaign billed as a major economic speech here Friday. He sought instead to raise the election's stakes, promising to improve the lives of regular people and bring "big change" to Washington.

Trying to stoke enthusiasm 11 days out, Romney stressed in human terms how much the election matters.
