CINCINNATI (June 14, 2012)--In a speech Thursday in Cincinnati, likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said President Barack Obama is "long on words and short on action" when it comes to fixing the economy.
Romney attacked Mr. Obama’s policies not long before the president delivered a speech on the economy in a different part of Ohio.
Romney said Mr. Obama's "talk is cheap," but said his actions "speak very loud."
Romney criticized the economic stimulus bill, the health care law and Mr. Obama's decision not to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada.
Romney's advisers billed his appearance as a major speech on the economy, but the former Massachusetts governor offered little beyond his standard campaign rhetoric.
He was originally scheduled to speak at the same time as Mr. Obama, but started 15 minutes early.
