URBANDALE, Iowa – President Obama didn’t watch the Republican convention, but that didn’t stop him from blasting Mitt Romney’s Tampa party as a throwback to bad times gone by.
“It was something to behold,” Obama said at a farm museum here. “Despite all the challenges that we face … what they offered over those three days was more often than not an agenda that was better suited for the last century. It was a re-run. We’ve seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV.”
Obama, who spokesman Jay Carney on Friday said read about the convention in print media rather than watching it on TV, then offered his take.
“If you didn’t DVR it, let me recap it for you,” Obama said. “Everything’s bad. It’s Obama’s fault. And Gov. Romney is the only one who knows the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. There was a lot of talk about hard truths and bold choices but nobody ever bothered to tell you what they were.”
He continued: “And when Gov. Romney had a chance to let you in on his secret, he did not offer a single new idea. Just retreads of the same old policies that have been sticking it to the middle class for years.”
