Romney Pivots Back to Economy

The Akin news cycle is over. Wishful thinking?


Mitt Romney returned forcefully to his core economic themes at a rally here Wednesday, trying to reassert control over his presidential campaign as a Republican Senate candidate's remarks on abortion threaten to overwhelm his message.

Romney tore into President Obama over his stewardship of the nation's job market and reliance on deficit spending, saying the president's record is "inexcusable," and calling on Iowans who helped propel Obama to the White House four years ago to take a different course this fall.
