Mitt Romney Wants to Talk About the Economy Way More Than The Other Guy

Despite criticisms that he's spent too much time railing against Obama and not enough time outlining his own plans, Mitt Romney said today that he's the candidate that wants to talk about the economy.

According to Romney, the economy is the cornerstone of his campaign, which distinguishes him from President Obama.

I know the president wants to talk about the economy, a little, not as much as I want to talk about the economy.

Romney continues to stress that he wants to create more jobs. Obama, on the other hand, is "hoping to change the subject," Romney said, riffing on the President's original "hope and change" campaign slogan.

At one point, Romney "slipped" and talked about Obama being elected governor instead of president — which was, naturally, the perfect segue into everyone's favorite "He's unqualified for the job" routine.

Governor might have been a better job for him to have started with. I say that because I actually think you learn from experience. I think it helps to have been in business before you actually start to run something in government.

Does that mean Romney thinks Obama has learned from his experience in office? Nah, it doesn't work that way.
