Mitt Romney hit back at President Obama today, slamming his "rhetorical excess" one day after Obama's speech attacking the GOP—and Romney himself. Romney was speaking to the same group of newspaper executives today when he accused Obama of using "straw men to distract from his record." He also specifically brought up Obama's "hot mic" moment with Dmitry Medvedev, telling the group that Obama's "intent is on hiding. You and I will have to do the seeking."
"On what other issues will he state his true position only after the election is over?" Romney wondered. He went on to claim Obama has "zero" plans to move the nation forward, and that he "delegated the stimulus to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid" so he could be free to work on a "government takeover of health care and apologizing for America abroad." Romney, on the other hand, has actually been attacked because he has "so many ideas," he said, according to the Los Angeles Times. (Read more Mitt Romney stories.)
