SHREVEPORT, La. - Mitt Romney said today that President Obama owes Americans an apology for the policies he's implemented that have led to high deficits and poor job growth.

"He's been out there trying to take credit for his policies," said Romney, standing in front of an oil rig in Shreveport. "Actually I think he's confused-it's his policies that have caused a lot of our problems. He shouldn't be trying to take credit, he should be pointing out he made some big mistakes."

"I'm reminded of another tour he took at the beginning of his administration. He went around the Middle East and apologized for America," he said. "You know instead of apologizing for America he should have stood up and said that as the president of the United States we all take credit for the greatness of this country."

Romney has long criticized Obama for "apologizing for America," even naming his book, "No Apology," vowing that if he is president he will never apologize for America.

"This is a president who has some apologizing to do and it's not to the people overseas for America, it's to the people in America for his policies."
