Washington (CNN) – Likely 2012 Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum joined the list of presidential hopefuls using President Obama’s re-election announcement as a platform to voice criticism of the current economic climate under Obama.
“We can’t take four more years of the ‘change’ the Obama Administration has forced upon America,” Santorum said in a release Monday. “The only thing that has changed is the amount of our debt, the size of our government, the loss of our freedom, the fewer jobs for those wanting work, the diminished stature of America, and an expensive military commitment without a clear national security purpose.”
“The ‘progress we’ve made’ that the President refers to has nothing to do with improving the lives of Americans or providing a better future for the next generations. It is about moving an ideological agenda to grow the power of Washington over the average citizen,” Santorum said.
