Romney: Obama's Like Marie Antoinette

Today in Iowa Mitt Romney sought to project the image many have of him—a wealthy man out of touch with everyday Americans—onto Obama. He quipped to a Huffington Post reporter on his campaign bus today, "When the president's characterization of our economy was, 'It could be worse,' it reminded me of Marie Antoinette: 'Let them eat cake.' " Romney was referring to a speech Obama made at a Wisconsin town-hall meeting in 2010 when he said, "It's hard to argue sometimes, things would have been a lot worse" without his stimulus plan. Romney seems focused on digging into the president as the Iowa caucuses approach.
