Romney's message to Obama voters: He let you down

Mitt Romney has just one job going into the last stretch of the presidential campaign. He has to connect with people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 but are disappointed with the president now.

And he has to convince them it's OK to choose a new candidate this time around; they don't owe Obama another vote.
