Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is calling on President Obama to block looming military cuts.

The former Massachusetts governor tells supporters in New Hampshire that the deficit-cutting supercommittee in Congress probably won't come up with a deal before its Wednesday deadline.

That would trigger billions of dollars in automatic cuts to the military and domestic programs.

Romney says the president hasn't done enough to push Congress to compromise, and Romney wants Obama to introduce legislation to stop the threatened military cuts.

Romney himself has been reluctant to take a position on the supercommittee.

romney should call the teavangelical/republican dogs off and get the party of "NO" working WITH President Obama...cuts are what the teavangelicals and republicans are all about, unlike what rational Democrats are trying to do to dig this country out of republican-caused chaos. romney has the gall to say Obama needs to do something about cuts? Obama has proposed and the teavangelicals/repubs have consistently what happens on 11/4/2012...OBAMA 2012!
