Democracy Now: Obama, Romney Mark 4th of July


On Wednesday, Romney marked the Fourth of July with an appearance in New Hampshire. Speaking to supporters, Romney continued with a campaign theme of linking President Obama’s policies to European-style social welfare.

Mitt Romney: “We believe in America. We don’t want to change America into something it’s not. We don’t want to make America more like Europe or more like any other place. We want to make America more like America with conviction that freedom is right and that all people are designed to have opportunity.”

Meanwhile at the White House, President Obama spent the Fourth of July hosting a celebration and concert for U.S. servicemembers.

President Obama: “Because of your service and sacrifice, all of our troops are now out of Iraq. Because of your service, because of your service and sacrifice we took the fight to al-Qaeda and we brought Osama bin Laden to justice. Because of your service and sacrifice, we are transitioning out of Afghanistan. We remain ready for any threat. That is all because of you.”
