(CNSNews.com) GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a crowd in Pompano Beach, Fla., on Sunday that President Barack Obama has run out of ideas and keeps saying the same things he’s been saying for the past several years while voters still see the same problems.

Romney referred to Obama’s presidency as a “Groundhog Day presidency.”

“I listened to the president give the State of the Union address the other night, and he said things he’s been saying for the last three or four years. I think it’s time to make sure that’s the last State of the Union address we hear from Barack Obama. I think it’s been a Groundhog Day presidency, where he keeps saying the same thing again and again and again,” Romney said.

The former Massachusetts governor said the nation continues to face high unemployment, home values that are underwater and foreclosures. Florida, specifically, accounts for 25 percent of all foreclosures in the nation, he said. “This president has not helped.”

“This president … did not cause the recession – he just made it worse, and he’s made the recovery longer and more tepid. It’s time to get a president who knows how to run an economy and get people working again,” Romney said.



“I listened to that speech of his. I listened to that speech and he’s run out of ideas. He’s run out of excuses, and in 2012, we’re gonna make sure and run him out of the White House. We’re gonna get it back,” he added.
