CONCORD, N.H.—Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has been laying the groundwork for a possible presidential campaign, is criticizing Democratic President Barack Obama for not focusing enough on the economy.
Romney was the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire Republican Party's biannual state convention Saturday.
Romney said Obama would have gotten better advice from his golf caddie than from his economic advisers because the caddie is closer to what's happening in the real world.
Romney has been traveling around the country making endorsements and contributing to campaigns from his Free and Strong America PAC, leading to speculation about a presidential bid in 2012. He's made several appearances in New Hampshire, which holds the earliest presidential primary.
