Democracy Now: Romney Hits Obama on Jobs and Distances Self from Bush


Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney returned to the campaign trail over the weekend after formally accepting his party’s nomination in Tampa last week. Speaking in the battleground state of Ohio, Romney attacked President Obama’s record on jobs while making an apparent attempt to distance himself from the last Republican president, George W. Bush.

Mitt Romney: “He was going to create more jobs, and today 23 million people are out of work or stopped looking for work or underemployed. Let me tell you, if you have a coach that’s zero and 23 million, you say it’s time to get a new coach. We’re going to finally have to do something that Republicans have spoken about for a long time, and for a while, we didn’t do it. When we had the lead, we let people down. We need to make sure we don’t lead them down this time. I will cut the deficit and get us on track to a balanced budget.”
