Romney on Obama: ‘Talk Is Cheap’

Before President Obama spoke today in Cleveland, Mitt Romney spoke for about twenty minutes in Cincinnati, arguing that Obama’s record on the economy was dismal.

“Now, you may have heard that President Obama is on the other side of the state and he’s going to be delivering a speech on the economy,” Romney said. “He’s doing that because he hasn’t delivered a recovery for the economy. And he’s going to be a person of eloquence, as he describes his plans for making the economy better, but don’t forget, he’s been president for three and a half years. and talk is cheap.”

“Action speaks very loud,” he added, “and if you want to see the results of his economic policies, look around Ohio, look around the country, and you’ll see that a lot of people are hurting.”
