Republican Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney Calls Obama’s Economic Ideas A “Pay Phone In A Smart Phone World”

Mitt Romney framed his economic plan Tuesday as a job creator for middle-class America while charging that President Obama, days before he is to outline his own plan, “doesn’t have a clue what to do.”

Speaking at a trucking company in North Las Vegas, Nev., Romney said Obama is “not a bad guy,” but pitching stale ideas that have failed to turn around the struggling economy.

“President Obama’s strategy is a pay-phone strategy and we’re in a smartphone world,” Romney said. “What he’s doing is taking quarters and stuffing them into the pay phone … [and he] can’t figure out why it’s not working. It’s not connected anymore, Mr. President!”

The half-hour speech was an effort by Romney to draw a contrast with Obama, who is to speak to a rare joint session of Congress on Thursday night.

The former Massachusetts governor did not list each of the 59 proposals his campaign put forward Tuesday, but outlined immediate steps he’d take on his first day in the Oval Office if elected.

They include introducing legislation to lower the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%; signing trade agreements with countries like Colombia, Panama and South Korea; opening new areas of the nation to drilling for oil and gas; and consolidating government-run job training programs.

Aight buddy, you’re walkin’ a thin line talkin’ greasy to the POTUS. After all, he is a “ninja”…
