Romney serves up subs, slams on Obama

WAUKESHA -- Making his last scheduled campaign stop of the Wisconsin primary, Mitt Romney accused the president of failing to take responsibility for rising gas prices.

Romney stopped at a Cousin’s Subs in Waukesha, where he served subs to supporters.

“The president put an ad out yesterday, talking about gas prices, and how high they are. And guess who he blamed? Me,” Romney said, drawing laughter from the audience.

Romney said that the president shouldn’t get credit for increases in oil production. Instead the former Massachusetts governor said the policies of the Bush administration are the reason production has increased.

Romney went after Obama for shutting down drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and in Alaska. He also said suggested that the Keystone XL pipeline would be built if he became president.

Romney also criticized the president for the pace of the economic recovery. At an event on Saturday, Romney had said the recovery had been the weakest “since Hoover.” Today, he took it further, saying the recovery was the slowest ever.

“This president is unwilling to take responsibility for his mistakes,” Romney said.

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, who endorsed Romney last week, told the crowd he has been feeling pretty good about his picks lately. He said he picked the right national champion in the NCAA tournament and “when I filled out my ballot for Wisconsin, I picked who I think it is going to be the next president of the United States, I picked Mitt Romney.”

Romney planned an Election Night party in Milwaukee, while the other presidential contenders will not be in the state today.
