Romney Tells NH Obama Has ‘Smothered’ Small-Town Dreams

" STRATHAM, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney said Friday that “small-town dreams” are being “smothered” under President Barack Obama as he kicked off his first traditional campaign trip of the general election.

Romney’s six-state bus trek is aimed at swaying undecided voters living “off the beaten path” outside of America’s big cities. He started at the New Hampshire farm where he announced his presidential bid almost a year ago.

“If there has ever been a president who has failed to give the middle class of America a fair shot, it is Barack Obama,” Romney told about 500 people standing in the sunshine outside a farmhouse plastered with the bus tour’s slogan, “Every Town Counts.” Romney criticized the economic speech Obama gave Thursday as “very long” — the president talked for nearly an hour— and said Obama is asking for “four more very long years.”

“From now until November, our campaign will carry a simple message: America’s greatest days are yet ahead,” Romney said.
