ABC News’ Arlette Saenz reports: One potential 2012 presidential contender, Mitt Romney, is criticizing President Obama’s State of the Union address and the lack of direction he’s providing for the country.
“President Obama knows where he wants to go, but he has no idea how to get there,” Romney said in a blog post in response to the State of the Union address.
“Under President Obama's economic leadership, more Americans have lost their jobs than any time in modern history. The on-the-job economic education of the President has cost American families almost a trillion dollars in failed stimulus schemes and, unfortunately, he's still failing the course. Rhetoric, however soaring, does not put pay checks in pay envelopes at the end of the week. You can't build a high speed rail system fast enough to outrun the President's misguided regulations, higher taxes or lack of focus on jobs. Hopefully he is learning. American families are depending on him."
Just this weekend, Mitt Romney won a straw poll of New Hampshire Republican Party committee members sponsored by ABC News and WMUR, taking 35 percent of the 276 valid ballots cast.
