GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney told Fox News's Neil Cavuto this afternoon that he will reveal his plan on job creation on September 6, the same week President Obama is set to unveil his own. Romney's speech is part of a strategy to "pick up the pace" in a new phase of the campaign.


"I fundamentally believe that the American people are about to say the Obama experiment has failed," Romney said on Cavuto's show. "And they recognize that. The president is going to come out with a new economic plan. We’ve seen the results of his last economic plan; it’s been an abject failure. They’re going to reject President Obama. We’re going to get back on track, restore the greatness that is America and I’d be investing in America, I think that’s a wise decision."
