Mitt Romney
“President Obama promised change, but he could not deliver it. I promise change, and I have a record of achieving it.” A familiar line from Romney during the campaign

John Sununu
“I think when you have somebody of your own race that you’re proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin [Powell] for standing with him.”
Romney campaign co-chair John Sununu’s statement on Powell’s endorsement of Obama drew some rebuke. Sununu later clarified his remarks.

Michael Bloomberg
“Rather than uniting the country around a message of shared sacrifice, he engaged in partisan attacks and has embraced a divisive populist agenda focused more on redistributing income than creating it.”
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg said of Obama before endorsing him

Barack Obama
“When it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.”
Obama told Romney during the third and final presidential debate

Joe Biden
“Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.”
Vice President Joe Biden said during campaign speeches, touting Obama’s accomplishments

Jen Psaki
“The Romney campaign is so desperate to change the subject that they’ve gone back to the failed playbook co-authored by Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber.”
Romney campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, referring to Romney attack on Obama’s 1998 comments about re-distribution of wealth
