In everything in life, there’s winners and then there’s... people who don’t win. The moment it became clear that Barack Obama had won the Presidential Elections and would be back for a second run, Mitt Romney held his concession speech.Check it out in full above.
Comparatively shorter than Obama’s, Romney thanked everyone who voted for him, as well as the team who helped him in the campaign.
He also extended his congratulations and best wishes to the new (but really not that “new”) President of the US, along with his thoughts that his second run would be better than the first.
“I pray the President will be successful in guiding our nation,” Romney said at the beginning of his speech.
“The nation, as you know, is at a critical point. At a time like this we can’t risk partisan bickering and political posturing. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the peoples’ work. And we citizens also have to rise to the occasion. We look to our teachers, our professors; we count on you not just to teach but to inspire our children with a passion for learning and discovery,” he added.
