Four Days Before Caucuses, Romney Sets Sights on ... Obama

Even as it makes last-minute preparations for the first GOP presidential primary contest, Mitt Romney and his Boston brain-trust took a quick detour Friday to preview how it plans to attack President Obama next fall.

The former Bay State governor went out of his way Friday morning to blast Obama for suggesting the economy could have been worse without his help, comparing him to a certain infamous figure from the French Revolution.

"That goes down with Marie Antoinette 'let them eat cake,'" he said during an appearance in West Des Moines. "He's in Hawaii right now. We're out in the cold and the rain and the wind because we care about America. He's out there, just finished his 90th round of golf. We got 25 million Americans that are out of work or stopped looking for work or are underemployed."
