Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) singled Mitt Romney out of the GOP pack for criticism Sunday, saying it wasn't President Obama's economic record that voters needed to turn on.
"What we should be turning on is Mitt Romney, for example, who purports to be the alternative to President Obama," she said on NBC's Meet the Press.
She characterized Romney's approach to the economy as letting the automobile industry become extinct and leaving "people who are struggling to remain in their homes out in the cold."
Wasserman Schultz's focus on Romney added to a chorus of voices within the Democratic Party that have made it clear they see Romney as the biggest threat to Obama, and his most likely 2012 opponent. The Democratic National Committee has started airing television ads against Romney and targeting his comments in GOP debates, even though the first primary contest is still almost two months away.
