Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN) - Republicans are pushing back against what they heard at the opening night of the Democratic convention.
"On the first night of President Obama's convention, not a single speaker uttered the words 'Americans are better off than they were four years ago.' Instead, there was a night full of tributes to government as the solution to every problem, even going as far as to say that 'government is the only thing that we all belong to.' But government belongs to the American people – not the other way around – and the American people will hold President Obama accountable for his record," said Andrea Saul, press secretary for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign.
Meanwhile, Republican National Committee communications director Sean Spicer, who's heading the GOP response team in Charlotte, sent an email to reporters, saying "just wanted to make sure you caught our updates to ObamaIsntWorking.com tonight. In total, we posted 10 Glaring Omissions on the Obama record and at least 7 Lies."
