Romney, GOP try to shift focus to deficit

(CNN) – Mitt Romney continued his blitz against President Barack Obama over the federal deficit on Tuesday, signaling a GOP shift away from social issues and back to what Republicans consider the president's Achilles' heel: the economy.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee gave a speech on government spending in the battleground state of Iowa, the same day as House Speaker John Boehner cautioned of another battle brewing in Congress over the national debt ceiling.

DEVELOPING… DEBT CEILING DÉJÀ VU: At the Peterson Foundation to Annual Fiscal Summit, Speaker John Boehner talks to CNN’s Erin Burnett about his “line in the sand”:

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER IN HIS SPEECH AT THE SUMMIT: “When the time comes, I will again insist on my simple principle of cuts and reforms greater than the debt limit increase… If that means we have to do a series of stop-gap measures, so be it – but that's not the ideal.”
