Romney Attacks President Obama During Lansing Speech

Mitt Romney is turning President Barack Obama's campaign message on its head.

The expected Republican presidential nominee says Obama wants to return America to "old-school liberal" policies of the past. Romney says he alone would guide the country in a new direction away from bigger government and higher taxes.

Obama has argued that Romney is the one who would take the country back to the past and to Bush administration policies. Obama and other Democrats say those policies didn't work and blame them for causing the recession.

Romney commented Monday during a campaign appearance in Lansing, Mich.

He also invoked Bill Clinton and said Obama should be more of a "new Democrat" like the former president who declared an end to "the era big government."

    Since Romey also states now, that he was the one who suggested the auto companies bailout, I wouldn't believe a word he says. I voted for him the the primary, but at this point find the man leaves me cold and if he picks who I think he will pick for VP I would rather die than vote for him. He is against Social Security, Medicare, and thinks only people just like him have a brain.

    He should really start telling us what he plans to do as President instead of just attacking the current president. I for one don't believe anything that comes out of his mouth. He switches sides all the time and lies about everything.

      I agree with you and don't understand the response that Bill gave you. I don't trust Romney and think people should research the Bain Corporation and the Koch brothers.
