>Josh Romney, the middle son of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, told Utah Republicans in Tampa on Monday that he foresees a Romney administration next year that will revive the economy and set America on a better path.
The younger Romney, who is an elected delegate from Utah, dropped by a morning breakfast for the state's Republicans in town for their national convention, telling the crowd over omelets that this November is a critical election. And he also lobbed a few salvos at President Barack Obama.
Noting that while President Ronald Reagan also inherited a downtrodden economy, Josh Romney said that Reagan didn't spend the next four years attributing all the problems on Carter.
"He didn't look back and blame Jimmy Carter," Josh Romney said. "He created an economy that was robust and strong, that created millions of jobs every month. He really brought this country together. That's really the real tragedy of the Obama presidency is that he didn't do that."
Josh Romney said that he's met plenty of voters on the campaign trail who said they voted for Obama in 2008, but weren't going to make that mistake again.
"I feel really good about the prospects," Josh Romney said of his dad's chances. "I can just feel the energy. That same thing President Obama had four years ago, we've got it now."
