CINCINNATI — Mitt Romney, for most of his campaign, mocked President Obama for trying to “transform America.” But in the final days of his race for the presidency, the Republican is driving home a singular message: He, not the president, is the true agent of change.
“We want to bring the real change to America,” Romney said Saturday in Dubuque, Iowa, part of a whirlwind day that also took him to Newington, N.H.; Colorado Springs; and Englewood, Colo. “He says it has to stay this way. I say it can’t stay this way. . . . I want to go to work, he wants to settle.”
