Romney Decries 'Obama Misery Index'

Saturday, 05 Mar 2011 05:23 PM

Mitt Romney is taking President Barack Obama to task in advance of the 2012 presidential campaign, saying Obama "created a deeper recession, and delayed the recovery" -- two key reasons American needs "a new president."

The former Massachusetts governor was scheduled to speak mitt,romney,obama,misery,indexSaturday night at the Carroll County Republican Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner, Politico reports. Romney's prepared remarks were released in advance, and he took direct aim at Obama.

“Senator Obama campaigned hard in New Hampshire but he apparently didn’t like what he saw,” Romney says in prepared remarks. “He certainly didn’t learn from it. Instead of lowering taxes, he raised them. He wrapped businesses in red tape, he grew government, he borrowed trillions of dollars, and he made it clear that he doesn’t like business people very much.

“He created a deeper recession, and delayed the recovery. The consequence is soaring numbers of Americans enduring unemployment, foreclosures and bankruptcies. This is the Obama Misery Index, and it is at a record high. It’s going to take more than new rhetoric to put Americans back to work — it’s going to take a new president."
