(CNN) – Hours before the polls closed Tuesday, GOP nominee Mitt Romney told reporters on his plane that he's so confident in a win he's only prepared a victory speech.
"I've only written one speech at this point," Romney said, adding the text of that address was 1,118 words long.
Saying "intellectually" he's felt he was going to win the election for a long time, Romney said his final campaign stops in Ohio and Pittsburgh Tuesday gave him an emotional jolt as well that victory is within his grasp.
As for any campaign regrets, Romney said he had few.
"I'm very proud of the campaign we've run," Romney said, adding that "no campaign is perfect."
"I am very pleased. I feel we have put it all on the field. We left nothing in the locker room," the candidate said.
what exactly are the failed policies of Obama's that people are referring to? Hmmm 30+ months of job growth, stock market is double what it was in jan. 09, taxes are down, two wars ended....somebody please explain this to me....
Does that mean when he loses, we wont be hearing from him. Ever?
In response to CBP.....You are very correct!!!!Agree 100%.
Well, no that the elections are getting close to over. The real arrogant Romney as we know him Massachusetts will come out. Hope he does not win, if he does it would fooled ya all.
Well, that will be awkward for him if he loses. Seems like it would be wise to prepare for both scenarios, especially in such a tight race. I hope Obama wins, but I'm not calling it until it's over.
My first thought on reading this? Romney's been made promises by ES&S and Diebold... Scary stuff. Witha vote this close, it's ripe for rigging.
He's only written a victory speech?
Then I hope he's good at coming up with speeches on the spot.
This is real Mitt. As soon as the election is over he will come out. Hope he does not win. He fooled us all.
Romney is either very arrogant of know that the GOP has rigged the election. Maybe Chief Justice Roberts is waiting by the phone to throw this election into the Republican camp just like that traitor did in 2000. Oh, Repubs, if you think the deficit is bad now just wait, Mitt will double it in less then six months...
I'm sure the Mittens supporters will eat this up. If President Obama said something this stupid, the right would explode with anger.
Everyone knows Romney hasn't written any speeches. That's his speechwriter's job...
This guy really just has no plan for anything does he....scary.
Even if he wins (which I doubt), he'll find that he can't fire Congressman and hire Chinese and Indians to pass his legislation. He better accept right now that if he moves to the left, the right will abandon him. And if he doesn't move to the left, the left will let him twist in the wind. And he won't find many friends in the middle. His administration will accomplish no more than Obama's.
The cheating, draft dodging Romney may win but he will never be my president.
WOW, how arrogant is that?
He wrote one and his advisers wrote the other when Obama is announced the winner.
That's ok, Mitt. keep it short and sweet, Just say, "I lost, bye/"
I wish I could unread this story.
what scarf said pretty much sums it up
Simply not doing the damage Barry did will be a significant improvement.
For all that voted for Romney, please don't be surprised when you find out he lied to you all just to get in the White House.
At least he's consistent. He has to be elected to first before he figures out what he is going to do. He has to be defeated first before he writes a concession speech. I hope to catch it on Fox News, his stammering and hemming and hawing and the look of utter embarrassment of the hosts that their boy, the billionaire puppet.
That's great now we can see the real Romney when he try's to talk without a written speech
Why do any extra work when you're billionaire backers have bought the election?
Romney have again demonstrated how big his ego are.
