GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney says President Obama fell short in the speech he made Thursday night when accepting the Democratic presidential nomination. Romney told a crowd in Orange City, Iowa, that Obama didn't lay out a plan to solve the nations' problems in his remarks at the Democratic National Convention. He faulted Obama for shortfalls in jobs creation and deficit reduction.

Romney promised to leverage the nation's resources in a move toward energy independence. He made pledges to improve schools and insisted he has the skills to create jobs. The former Massachusetts governor also vowed to support small businesses.
