n Thursday night, Mitt Romney accepted the Republican presidential nomination with a primetime address that mixed bits of biography with an appeal to voters disappointed with the leadership of President Obama. Romney promised to create 12 million jobs by increasing domestic energy production, lowering taxes, balancing the budget, and vowing to "repeal and replace ObamaCare." He was preceded by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who delivered a rousing address about the promise of America, and by actor Clint Eastwood, who interviewed an empty chair representing Obama.
