The former Massachusetts governor is expected to link the Democrats while campaigning in New Hampshire Friday. In a press release, Team Romney said Obama's comments Thursday in a television interview that Americans are "stressed out" are equivalent to Carter's 1979 "Malaise" speech when he said Americans have a "crisis of confidence." Friday is the 32nd anniversary of the address.

"I don't have any criticism of the members of the Tea Party," Carter told CNN's Howard Kurtz in an interview on "Reliable Sources." "A lot of those same people, 30 years ago, were the ones who put me in the White House."
