We officially started our campaign about nine months ago not very far from here at a farmhouse in New Hampshire it was a beautiful spring day full of hope and promise.
A day that made us all recognize.
Once again how lucky we are to be Americans.
-- we launch that day was an effort not just to win more votes or more delegates delegates it was the start of an effort to restore the promise of America.
A promise that we now has.
We -- out -- clarion call across the country.
-- -- factory floors.
Two door to door heart to heart.
Face to face across the country -- met -- moms and dads and teachers and students and factory workers and business owners I've listened and I've learned.
I hope on the better candidate by the way for having done all that and I.
I've got -- Forever be grateful to you for the help that you've given me and and grateful also to all those people who helped me through this process and and top -- on the way.
I've met some extraordinary folks I met someone named -- burned.

Norm didn't go to college didn't get -- engineering degree.
But he does have 100 patents in his name.
And it turned -- a small shop in his basement into a very successful company that employs a lot of people.
It's that it's ought to -- like like norm burn.
We're going to get America's economy back on track -- we get the government out of the way.
And I've met parents like like David McArthur maybe you saw him on the Huckabee show.
Who's the children in his case have.
Have served their country in -- David's son was seriously injured in Afghanistan as he described he he only return for the front lines.
The face a new fight to get the medical care he needed and he surely has has earned.
And as I told David I believe that to those who put everything on the line for us we owe everything to them that they need.
America's veterans and they deserve a lot better the long lines and reduce benefits and as president I'm gonna make sure they get the care they deserve.
Yeah and I.
So on running for for office -- had the chance of meeting people like Norman David and there.
Their stories -- course inspiring but I've also met some people who are were hurting.
Under this stagnant Obama economy.
And their stories are heartbreaking.
Some people lost their jobs.
Others are working two jobs just to make ends meet.
Some used to be middle income and now they're struggling again right back where they started.
As you know the prices for gasoline and food and clothing and health care keep going up but their paychecks.
Stayed the same if they're lucky.
President Obama keeps telling these Americans that the recovery is here.
But for them the recession is not over that's for sure.
And -- from generation to generation in this country.
Americans have always known that the future it would be brighter and better we've always believe that it tomorrow full apostles -- possibility.
And prosperity and security.
That that deep confidence.
In a better tomorrow.
Is the basic promise of America.
But today that promise is being threatened by a faltering economy.
And a failed presidency.
To the millions of Americans who look around it can only see jobs they can't get.
And bills that they but they can't pay I have a message.
You have not failed.
You have a president that's failed you and that's -- -- -- -- When he was campaigning present Obama as said he create jobs.
But for 36 straight months unemployment has been above 8%.
And he's also said he cut the deficit in half and he's doubled the Amish you know that the dads today are too high the opportunities are too few.
And we've seen enough for this president over the last three years to know that we don't need another five of this president that's.
Look at seven.
This president has run out of ideas.
He's run out of excuses and -- 2012 we're gonna get him out of the out out of.
Out President Obama -- ladies unchecked by the -- decision.
It is is -- responsive to the will of our people operates by command.
Is that -- by consensus.
In a second term.
He'd be on restrained by the demands of reelection and -- -- one thing we cannot afford it's for years of Barack Obama with no one answer to.
So -- days.
-- you hear the president and his team they keep telling us that things are getting better but 24 million Americans are still struggling for work.
There are hot having each other and the west wing.
But my friends -- through -- 8% unemployment is not the best America can do it it's just the best that this administration to do.
When I'm president this America and American economy will not be lagging behind this American economy will be leading the world as it has and as it should and as it will do in the future.
President's administration on the unemployment numbers just another and -- biggest statistic.
Standing in the way of a second term.
