Pray for Obama’s concessions speech.
(CNN) – Hours before the polls closed Tuesday, GOP nominee Mitt Romney told reporters on his plane that he’s so confident in a win he’s only prepared a victory speech.
“I’ve only written one speech at this point,” Romney said, adding the text of that address was 1,118 words long.
Saying “intellectually” he’s felt he was going to win the election for a long time, Romney said his final campaign stops in Ohio and Pittsburgh Tuesday gave him an emotional jolt as well that victory is within his grasp.
Obama is not as confident and has a concession speech…
Expressing confidence but leaving nothing to chance, including having a concession speech ready, President Barack Obama indulged his superstitions by engaging in a traditional Election Day basketball game with friends as the race that will determine his political future was finally in the hands of voters.
Obama played on the hard court — and won — after he gave a final exhortation to his volunteers to get out the vote, voiced optimism about his chances and congratulated rival Mitt Romney on a “spirited campaign.”
“I expect that we’ll have a good night,” he said.
