In Florida, Romney slams Obama’s ‘incredible shrinking campaign’

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney called President Obama’s reelection team “the incredible shrinking campaign” during a Florida rally late Friday, saying “they’ve been reduced to petty attacks and silly word games,” ABC News reported.

{mosads}The fresh attack from Romney comes after President Obama accused his GOP challenger of backing away from certain policy positions in an effort to appeal to centrist voters and said he was suffering from “Romnesia.” The phrase later spread like wildfire on Twitter.

“The Obama campaign has become the incredible shrinking campaign. This is a big country with big opportunities and great challenges, and they keep on talking about smaller and smaller things,” Romney told the audience at the rally in Daytona Beach, Fla., according to ABC News.

“We have big ideas, bold ideas, a strong agenda,” Romney continued. “We’re going to get America working again and that’s why you’re going to help elect the two of us.”

The former Massachusetts governor also accused the president’s campaign with having “absolutely no agenda for the future” nor an “agenda for a second term.”

Romney’s vice presidential running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), was also on hand at the rally, ABC reported, and country singer John Rich performed for the crowd before Romney took the stage.

Ryan is scheduled to attend another rally in Belmont, Ohio on Saturday afternoon.

Vice President Biden will speak at a campaign event on Saturday afternoon in St. Augustine, Fla.
