Romney called the continuing unemployment rate "a moral crisis that we face in this country," that he says Obama has ignored.
"I don't see it's possible to solve a crisis, if you can't see a crisis," Romney said.
By way of solutions, Romney turned to his stump speech: cut government spending (he spoke again of capping the size of government to 20% of GDP), eliminating regulation and repealing what Romney called "the mother of all federal powergrabs...Obamacare."
Romney's speech was one of the most economically-focused at the FFC's first day. But the former governor of Massachusetts had a bone to throw the socially-conservative audience at the start of his remarks.
"We're united in our belief in the sanctity of human life," Romney, who used to be pro-choice, said. "And we're united in our belief in the importance and the significance of marriage between one man and one woman."
