Potential Republican VP candidates blast President Obama during Niles visit



Published: Thu, July 5, 2012 @ 9:02 p.m.

POLAND — The day before Barack Obama’s Friday visit to the Mahoning Valley, two of Mitt Romney’s top surrogates criticized the Democratic president’s economic policies.

During a stop today in the parking lot of Eastwood Field in Niles, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and ex-Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, both considered potential vice president running mates for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, told The Vindicator that Obama needs to held accountable for the decisions he’s made during his time as president.

“Clearly, the president can’t run on his track record, can’t run on his results, can’t run on his broken promises,” Jindal said. “Instead, he’s running a campaign of divide and blame.”

Obama is visiting Mahoning County on Friday.

The president will tour Summer Garden Food Manufacturing in Boardman at 9:40 a.m., according to his campaign. The event at the food manufacturing facility is closed to the public and journalists, except for pool press members.

Obama then goes to Dobbins Elementary School in Poland. He will give a speech to an invitation-only crowd of about 200 to 250 supporters at 10:45 a.m.

The president’s visit to the Valley, as part of his two-day “Betting on America” bus tour, is the only stop on the five-city trip that is closed to the general public.

No, the repubs can't run against the president's record . The economy is improving, unemployment is much lower in the swing states than the national average, gas prices have fallen from 3.57 which was the average a year ago to 3.39 and is hovering at 3.00 at many mid-Atlantic states, the car industry is thriving, the wars are over, health care reform is a reality and the Supremes have validated its constiitutionality, the leading terrorists are dead, immigration laws protecting young people are in place......shall I go on? It's difficult to run against the president's record....unless one resorts to lies!

Manufacturing is down. Unemployment is down because the 99ers are off the rolls(we have more people every month but fewer jobs. how can it be down?)The car industry robbed the tax payers and immigration to protect people under 30 with 3 misdemeanors is not a good thing. Health care reform will break us and cause a depression.
We don't need lies.

Typical dems want to be taken care of instead of being responsible for themselves.

The republicans conveniently forget about their obstructionist tactics in the Congress and then blame Obama for making things worse. The only record they have is trickle down economics that is really peeing on your shoes while saying it's raining outside. Don't be fooled. We don't need an off shore tax sheltered, out of touch, out-sourcer in chief selling American jobs and businesses to the highest foreign bidder.
