Mitt Romney Lauds Obama Thanks For Showing He's For Real
By Mary McRobotface
COLUMBUS, OH—In a joint press conference Saturday, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney praised President Obama, saying he was grateful to have him in the White House for the last eight years and then thanking him for his service. “The president and I are both proud to serve our country, and I think we can all agree that the guys at NBC are doing a great job,” said Romney, adding that he felt just as proud to see Obama raise his hand as the GOP nominee eight years ago. “I think we have a chance to move forward and create jobs here in this country. And I think we also have a chance to make sure that our country continues to thrive, so I thank you, Mr. President, for doing such a good job.” Obama has not commented directly on Romney’s remarks, but has stated that he is looking forward to a future where he can just sit back and enjoy Mitt Romney.
