Now the nominee, Mitt Romney offers hope for growth

We acknowledge that Obama inherited a bad economy. If elected, Romney will inherit one as well because Obama has done little to improve it and much to harm it. The middle class has shrunk. His energy policy is mired in the muck of fuzzy environmentalism rather than rooted in the soils of sensibility. As we noted last December in endorsing Romney, the president has “paid lip service to expanding markets for domestic natural gas. He's paid debt service to expanding ventures such as Solyndra.”

America wanted a unifying figure four years ago. It got a divider. America needed a pro-growth champion. It got a slow-growth meddler.

Romney doesn't offer false hope for unity. He offers solid hope for growth. That growth will drive our fortunes higher and lift our spirits as well.
