Romney returns focus to Obama
Faces criticism over comments on ‘the very poor’
Mitt Romney, fresh off a resounding victory in Florida, attacked President Obama without mentioning his Republican rivals as he tries to rally his fractured party and begin moving toward the general election. “He’s detached from the American people,’’ Romney said of the president. Yet, Romney spent much of the day fending off criticism that he, not the president, was the out-of-touch candidate. That assessment followed comments in which he seemed to downplay the plight of the poor.
