Romney lays out bleak picture if Obama re-elected
On Monday, Mitt Romney opened what appears to be a new line of attack against President Barack Obama, painting a gloomy picture for the U.S. if the president is re-elected.
During opening remarks at a campaign event in Dubuque, Iowa, the Republican presidential candidate invoked the pain and panic felt by Americans during a historic period of economic calamity.
"When I was a boy, we used to turn to our parents, as a generation, and ask them how they did during the Great Depression," Romney told the crowd. "My guess is, 20, 25 years from now …your kids are going to turn to you and say, 'How did you make it through the Obama Great Recession?' "
"How you answer is going to depend, in part, on what happens about a year from now," Romney said.
