CAMPAIGN 2012

QUICK TAKE: Santorum Criticizes Obama, Says America 'Deserves Better'

President Obama, far from delivering the State of the Union, instead kick-started his reelection campaign on Tuesday, said Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum, who had harsh words for the president. 

"From beginning to end, the American people heard more of the same —empty promises and grand platitudes that will do nothing to help the millions of Americans who are unemployed or under employed find a good paying job," Santorum said in a statement Tuesday. 

 

Santorum, who was declared the winner of the Iowa caucuses by a razor-thin margin late last week, is campaigning in Florida ahead of that state's primary on Tuesday. In his attack on Obama, Santorum focused on the "contrast" between his campaign and the president, saying that America "deserves better" than what it gets from Obama.
