Quotes of the Day: the Mitt Romney edition

"This election is about whether we want to change America. And I want to keep America America," [Romney]said to applause.

"I think in this race you have two different men who have two different views. One [Jim Martin] would take America down the course of becoming like Europe, big taxes and big government," said Romney. Chambliss, he said, "fundamentally believes in keeping America strong and safe and free."

Former Massachusetts Governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was in Georgia last week stumping for Saxby Chambliss in the days before the December 2nd run-off to decide Georgia's hotly contested Senate race.

"I want to make sure we don’t take a left turn toward Europe," Romney said.
