Obama accuses Romney of 'sticking' 'last century' policies to middle class
Washington, Sept. 2 (ANI): President Barack Obama opened up a new line of attack against Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, accusing him of retreating to policies from the 'last century' and 'sticking it' to the middle class.
Obama said this during a campaign event in important swing state, Iowa, and addressed roughly 10,000 people, a swing state that effectively launched his successful presidential bid four years ago.
"Despite all the challenges that we face in this new century, what they offered over those three days was, more often than not, an agenda that was better suited for the last century," Obama said.
"It was a rerun. We'd seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV," Obama added.
"There was a lot of talk about hard truths and bold choices, but nobody ever actually bothered to tell you what they were ... And when Gov. Romney had his chance to let you in on his secret, he did not offer a single new idea, just retreads of the same old policies that have been sticking it to the middle class for years," he added.
According to Fox News, Romney, working hard to make sure the president does not hog the spotlight going into his party's convention week, meanwhile used a campaign stop in the critical swing state of Ohio to hammer Obama saying that he has failed to live up to the hope of his 2008 campaign, especially on the job front.
Romney said that Obama has fallen back on a campaign of 'divisiveness and bitterness'.
According to the report, Obama, who was speaking for the first time since Romney received his party's nomination at the Republican convention last week, also hit him for 'having nothing to say' on Afghanistan. (ANI)
