Romney: Obama is ‘Awfully European’


romneyMitt Romney ridiculed President Barack Obama for his “awfully European” economic policies at a town hall this morning, using the May unemployment report to beat up on the White House.

“Barack Obama has failed America,” Romney said, repeating a line from his announcement speech Thursday. “And so today, three years into his term, we have more news that unemployment has ticked up again.”

The Labor Department reported Friday that unemployment had risen to 9.1 percent in May, just a few minutes before Romney began his first New Hampshire town hall of the 2012 cycle here in Manchester.

Romney gave the president for having “tried” to help the country recover, but said Obama had instead “extended the downturn and made it deeper” through un-American economic policies.

“When the Europeans were in trouble economically, they spent more money and they borrowed more money. That’s just what he did,” Romney said. “He has been awfully European. You know what? European policies don’t work there. They sure…aren’t going to work here.”

“I believe in capitalism. I believe in the Constitution,” he continued. “And I believe in the greatness of America.”

  1. I hope Romney continues along this line of campaigning like he is now …that Obama failed and is European, because in the last three months of the campaign when Obama spends his millions to communicate how each decision he- Obama- made, was beneficial to the country, but every time the republicans got in the way, it reduced the benefits to the American people, ( like tax cuts to wealthy, like stopping more cost cutting in Obamacare.etc…)…and this will sweep Obama to victory.

  2. Is Obama gonna win, I dont know? But one thing I know for certain, and that is, Obama has way more to loose here if he looses the presidency, he will be the first Black President who won, but lost credibility midway, Americans generaly dont vote out a President midway. And second but not least, the Health Care Act which is Obamas baby, and well its a great plan of action and great for everyone, but if Obama goes, so will Health Care!
