Romney: Obama neglecting the economy

Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Thursday President Obama has spent too much time fundraising and not enough time on fixing the economy.

The White House responded that the president has taken action on the council’s recommendations to a greater degree than Congress has.

The American Crossroads super PAC backing Romney added more negative advertising to the already crowded airwaves this campaign season, alleging Obama’s own negative ads are meant to distract voters from his record on the economy, the Los Angeles Times said.

The $9.3 million ad buy from American Crossroads is well timed for Romney, who can’t use his own campaign funds to buy TV time until the general election campaign begins, after he is nominated at the Republican convention in August.
