Mitt Romney campaigned Thursday in Jacksonville, Florida at the River City Brewing Company where he told supporters that he's dissapointed in President Obama for not reducing the federal debt that's going to "crush America."
The Republican Presidential candidate was introduced by Florida's Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and stood in front of a national debt clock at the event. I'm going to take us in a very different place," he said. "If I'm president of the United States, I happen to believe that we can be on the cusp of an extraordinary economic resurgence, a manufacturing resurgence, a jobs resurgence, a housing resurgence."

The Republicans have responded with thier own has tag of #ObamaYachtNames. He ended the day at a fundraising reception at Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton and dinner at a nearby home.
