Obama detached from reality -Romney

Republican candidates are back on the campaign trail with Mitt Romney hitting US President Barack Obama on his State of the Union address. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MITT ROMNEY, SAYING: "My first take was this, as I watched the president speak I was reminded of his trip to Florida, just a week or so ago when he spoke in Fantasy Land, because he was speaking in Fantasy Land again last night. He seemed so extraordinarily detached from reality, detached from what is going on in Florida. I mean he came to Fantasy Land but apparently did not spend much time in the communities around Fantasy Land and around this state. He said last night how well things are going. If you really think that things are going well in this country, that we are on the right track and that his policies are working, you ought to vote for him." Romney was referring to Obama's trip to Disney World's Fantasy Land last week. Meanwhile fresh from his victory in the South Carolina primary, Newt Gingrich sat down with Univision journalist Jorge Ramos. First he attacked Romney on immigration. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE NEWT GINGRICH, SAYING: "You have to live in a world of Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island accounts and automatically $20 million dollars a year with no work to have some fantasy this far from reality. I talk very specifically about people who have been here a long time who are grandfathers and grandmothers, who have been paying their bills, they have been working as part of the community." Then he discussed his three marriages. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE NEWT GINGRICH, SAYING: "The fact is, I have been through two divorces, I have been deposed both times, under oath. Both times, I told the truth in the deposition because I know that it, and I am not a lawyer, so I know it is a felony. Bill Clinton who is a lawyer, I mean he is a Yale graduate, Law School graduate, he knew he was lying under oath. He knew it was perjury. He knew it was a felony and in fact he lost his license to practice law in Arkansas as part of the deal." The candidates will continue to campaign across the "Sunshine State" ahead of Florida's primary on January 31. Marie-Claire Fennessy, Reuters
