Romney: Obama's speech "drew upon American values"

Mitt Romney responds to President Obama's inaugural address:

Barack Obama gave a speech from the middle. He once again is communicating that he intends to govern from the middle and not from the wing…It was a speech that could be offered by a leader from either party and that’s good. His themes extended well beyond partisan causes and drew upon American values and dealt with American challenges....

I think given the challenges we face today, the future of either party pales in comparison with the future of our country. I think partisans are burying their partisanship to take action that will strengthen action at a critical time.
