Romney camp mocks Obama's 20-page plan for 2nd term, as campaigns pick up pace
The Romney campaign on Wednesday mocked President Obama for putting out a glossy 20-page booklet laying out his second-term economic plan, describing it as a collection of recycled ideas two weeks before Election Day.
Obama, meanwhile, returned to accusations at a campaign stop in Iowa that his Republican rival's tax plan serves the wealthy and would "stick the middle class with the bill."
The exchange marked the opening of a marathon campaign blitz for the president, who is embarking on the busiest travel day of his 2012 campaign. The president is planning to hit five states by Thursday morning, covering 5,300 miles.
He was going from Washington to Iowa, Colorado, California and Nevada, and then overnight to Florida. It was the first time Obama was spending the night flying on Air Force One for a domestic trip but far from unprecedented by incumbents scrambling to keep their job.
The president on Tuesday, responding to criticism that he's spent too much time criticizing Romney and not enough time talking about what he'd do in a second term, released a 20-page booklet focusing on his second term jobs agenda. The "Blueprint for America's Future" outlined his proposals and promised to distribute millions of copies. The plan includes spending more on education, boosting U.S. manufacturing jobs and raising taxes on top earners.
But Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul dismissed the move.
"With two weeks left, President Obama is kicking off yet another campaign tour and touting his 20-page brochure that he's calling an agenda," she said. "But instead of a positive vision for a second term, the president is only offering voters four more years like the last four years, with $2 trillion in higher taxes, over 700,000 fewer jobs, and $716 billion in Medicare cuts."
