Romney: Obama's a 'Job Killer'
Fresh off his historically narrow victory in Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses, Republican presidential pageant favorite Mitt Romney beefed up his attack rhetoric against his would-be opponent, Barack Obama, on Thursday by lashing out against the president’s latest big appointments. Romney’s leap of logic from “crony capitalist” to “job killer” seemed a bit spurious and hard to follow, which can mean only one thing: He’s ready for the campaign trail. –KA
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney unleashed a new assault on President Obama today, charging him with “crony capitalism” after he made three new appointments to the National Labor Relations Board — long hated by businesses who say the board favors unions.
“This president is a crony capitalist. He’s a job killer,” said Romney at a morning town hall in the Granite State. “This president said he wants to create green jobs, I think he wants to give jobs to the people who gave him the green.”
