CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — 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 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.

    Do you really think Obama is going to stop over at Shoney’s and have an all you can eat BBQ plate for 5.99 per person??? Hell maybe one of his stops will be at the residence of Bill Ayers. Catering to the left loonies.

    Romney is correct. Government cannot create jobs other than government jobs. But government can do a great deal to create a favorable environment for job growth created by private business and industry. Obama’s failed policies have simply not done that.

    If Romney gets elected maybe we can again embrace polygamy….because after all, this is the line of thought that this President has when he reaches the kingdom….

    A “vast left-wing conspiracy”. Verrrry interesting. Does that sound familiar? Like they say; even paranoids have enemies.

    On an up note; the Government has exploded by over 600,000 useless, lazy bureaucrats under Obummer. So it’s not a total loss. Even socialist Greece had it really good for a short time

    are YOU voting for this year? “this was the moment, when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal” BO in his Democratic nomination acceptance speech. Or; I believe he (God) used the process of evolution to create the human body.” MR. And, While governor of Massachusetts, Mr. Romney opposed the teaching of intelligent design in science classes. Analysis; There is no good choice for Amerika this November. Recommendation; repent and pray.
