President Obama attacks Mitt Romney on jobs in New Hampshire while fundraising in the northeast

Earlier Monday President Obama targeted his GOP rival Mitt Romney on his jobs plan and business record in Durham, New Hampshire, jumping on a report claiming the former Bay State governor’s old firm helped outsource jobs overseas.

Obama mocked Romney for a Washington Post report last week claiming Bain Capital invested in companies that outsourced jobs to China and India.

“They tried to clear this up by telling us that there’s actually a difference between outsourcing and off-shoring. That’s what they said. You cannot makes this stuff up. Now what Gov. Romney doesn’t undstand is this — if you’re a worker whose job went overseas, you don’t need someone telling you the difference between outsourcing and off-shoring, you need someone who’s going to wake up every single day and fight for American jobs.”

Obama said Romney will inflict $5 trillion in tax cuts that will slash education, clean energy and Medicare, and repeatedly told the crowd that Romney wanted to hand “millionaires and billionaires” tax cuts.

“When Gov. Romney tells you he’s some sort of financial wizard who’s going to fix the economy, that’s how he’s going to do it,” Obama said to a packed crowd at the Oyster River High School gymnasium this afternoon.

The event is considered a huge success as Boston.com says ‘Rain outside, cheers inside’.

The President received a standing ovation when he stated: “You need someone who’s going to wake up every single day and fight for American jobs,” as he did when he said he was running for office again to do “some nation building here at home” after “a decade of war.”
