President Obama makes a rare visit to the Pentagon. January 5, 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the central question of the 2012 election is how to restore economic security for the middle class. He says he can't remember a time when the choices in a presidential election were "so unambiguously clear."
Obama is sharply criticizing a $3.5 trillion proposal led by Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin that was approved by the House last week and has been backed by Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney.
Ryan's proposal aims to slash the deficit and reduce the size of government. It stands little chance in the Democratic-controlled Senate but represents the GOP's fiscal priorities.
Obama was speaking Tuesday to newspaper executives at The Associated Press luncheon.
