Mitt Romney has some words to describe what he thinks Barack Obama’s campaign will be like:
Fresh off of his double-digit win in the Florida primary, Mitt Romney said Wednesday that his debate performances propelled him to victory and vowed that the tough primary race was only preparing him for President Barack Obama’s “vitriolic, spiteful” campaign.
“The people here I think made their mind up based upon the debates,” Romney said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “It was a chance to see both of us, to talk about our respective visions for the future of the country and fortunately I was able to connect with people here and get the kind of support I needed.”
Asked about the negativity of the Republican race following a new report that showed that 92 percent of all of the campaign ads that ran in the Sunshine State in the week leading up to the Florida primary were attack spots, Romney said on “Good Morning America” that the fight was preparing him for what’s to come in the general election.
“What you’re seeing from speaker Gingrich is just a precursor of what you’ll see from President Obama, and in some respects, perhaps what we’re getting inoculates us, or at least prepares us, for what will come down the road,” he said. “There’s no question that Barack Obama’s billion-dollar machine will organize the most vitriolic, spiteful campaign in American history, and we’re going to have to be ready for that.”
Asked about what lessons he has been learning on the campaign trail, the former Massachusetts governor responded, “If [the American people] decide to go a different direction, that’s not the end of the world for me. I love this country. I’m absolutely convinced that our future’s going to be bright. I have a good life with my family, my wife. I don’t have to win, I just want to win because I care about the country.”
And he has millions and millions of dollars.
