TAMPA, Florida (NBC) -- Mitt Romney says the Obama administration has failed, and he's got a plan to fix it.
"You know there's something wrong with the kind of job he's done as president when the best feeling you had, was the day you voted for him," Romney said in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.
In the most important speech of his political career Romney defended his business success, talked about family and opened up about his Mormon faith.
"We found kinship with a wide circle of friends through our church," he said.
He hit all the big issues: schools, foreign policy, the national debt, jobs and taxes.
Super-rich Romney also tried to connect with the middle class.
"President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family," he said.
After a big send-off rally Romney and Paul Ryan will hop aboard their newly-designed campaign plane, headed to Virginia.
