Running on the economy

President Obama yesterday spoke out against the House Republican budget proposed by Paul Ryan.

This afternoon, Mitt Romney responded saying Obama “railed against arguments no one is making and criticized policies no one is proposing…. setting up ‘strawmen’ to distract us from his record… I understand he doesn’t want to run on his record, but he can’t run from his record either.”

Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt responding to Alex today that the President was certainly commenting about a real proposal - a proposal very similar to the one Romney is pushing. It’s got the same trillion dollar tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, the same policies from 2001-2003 that helped drive up the deficit and didn’t create jobs.

Will the economy be the main issue the candidates run on in the general election?
