ORANGE CITY, Iowa – In his first public campaign event in five days, Mitt Romney gave a scathing review of President Obama’s convention speech, referring to it as “extraordinarily, surprisingly disappointing.”
“I was surprised by his address because I expected him to confront the major challenges of the last four years, which is an economy which has not produced the jobs that the American people need,” said Romney, who said that he had read, but didn’t watch, Obama’s speech last night.
“I expected him to talk about 23 million people, or at least to talk about the unemployed in America. I expected him to talk about the number of families having a hard time making ends meet. The number of middle income families who have seen the cost of health care insurance go up, the cost of food go up, the cost of gasoline go up, even as their incomes have gone down, I expected him to talk about these things,” said Romney.
