Looks like Mitt Romney is highly unsatisfied with the way the present government is dealing with the USA. He finds the present president totally detached from the problems of the state. All this started with President Barack Obama making a statement that the “private sector is doing fine”. This made Mitt Romney question the President’s knowledge of the country’s problems.
He pointed out the drop in the median income by 10 percent and said that the whole situation has been miscalculated. “It’s an extraordinary miscalculation and misunderstanding by a president who is out of touch, and we’re going to take back this country and get America working again,” he said.
Countering this President Barack Obama says that the country’s economic policy has been extremely successful in giving a means of livelihood to a large number of people. He says “We’ve created 4.3 million jobs over the last … 27 months; over 800,000 just this year alone”.
He accepts the weakness of the economy and blames it on the flexibility that the federal government possessed earlier and which is absent in the present day. The President later clarified his statement later on and told people what he meant when he said the private sector is doing fine.
“Let me be as clear as I can be,” he said, “The economy needs to be strengthened…I believe that there are a lot of Americans who are hurting right now, which is what I’ve been saying for the last year, two years, three years, what I’ve been saying since I came into office.”
Saying this Obama requested Mitt Romney and the Republicans to suggest some measures to improve the current situation. We are yet to see if the battle between the Presidents will do good to the country or otherwise. Do let us know your opinion while we await the outcome. I’ll waiting eagerly to know what you think about the whole issue. People don’t keep me waiting for too long, please!
