Romney and Ryan rip Obama in battleground Nevada

Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan sought to seize momentum in their first post-presidential debate stop in Henderson, Nevada, accusing Obama of failing to revive the economy -- and offering no new plans to do so.

They both portrayed Obama as flailing without an agenda, though neither directly mentioned the 20-page plan Obama released Tuesday. Romney charged that Obama has been relegated to relying on "characters on Sesame Street" to criticize Romney. 

And he repeated a line from the debate that "attacks on me are not an agenda.. That’s why his campaign is taking on water and our campaign is full steam ahead."

"We can handle 2 more weeks of campaign, but we can't handle four more years of what he's given us," Romney said, ticking off unemployment numbers, sinking housing costs and rising gas prices.

He said he'd deliver 12 million new jobs, raise take home pay and pledged in four years to reduce Nevada's "unemployment down to 6 percent."

Obama, he charged, is leading the U.S. on a path that will have it look "a lot like the troubled nations in Europe."
