Romney Scoffs at Director's 'Too Many Accomplishments' Obama Lament: 'Talk to the 24 Million Americans Out of Work

"How about our soldiers coming home that can't find work? You can talk to them as well."

Following director David Guggenheim's declaration that "the only negative" about making his new film about President Barack Obama was that "there were too many accomplishments," Mitt Romney hit back, suggesting he "talk to the 24 million Americans that are out of work or underemployed."

“I have some suggestions for the president and for the producer,” the GOP presidential candidate said Friday. “First of all, talk to the 24 million Americans that are out of work or underemployed in this country.”

"How about our soldiers coming home that can't find work? You can talk to them as well," Romney continued. "And how about the folks that are having a hard time filling up their car because of the price of gasoline that's doubled under the president.

Guggenheim is the director, not the producer, of the 17-minute film, "The Road We've Traveled." It's been described as both a documentary and a long-form advertisement for the president's re-election campaign. Guggenheim also directed a 30-minute campaign video for Obama in 2008, according to The Hill.
