MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE -- Minutes after the polls closed Tuesday night, Mitt Romney took to the stage as projections gave him a decisive victory in the first-in-the-nation Republican presidential primary.

The former governor of Massachusetts spent most of his energized speech attacking US President Barack Obama as a "failed" leader and outlining the ways in which he would lead the country in a new direction, including in the international arena.

"He criticizes our friends like Israel. I will always stand with our friends," Romney declared to loud applause, his only reference to a foreign country.

He began his victory speech by shouting to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters that "Tonight we made history!"
