Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama
is over his head and swimming in the wrong direction when it comes
to the economy.
In a scathing indictment of Obama's policies, the Republican
presidential nominee-in-waiting says virtually nothing Obama has
done in his time in the Oval Office has helped create jobs.
Romney says more Americans have lost jobs, more houses have
plunged in value, gasoline prices have doubled and health care
costs have risen during Obama's tenure.
Romney spoke Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C., across the street
from the Bank of America Stadium, where Obama will accept the
Democratic Party's nomination to a second term in early September.
Romney spoke as Obama campaigned in Ohio, a perennial swing
state struggling to recover from the worst recession in decades.
