Romney: Obama means cuts to jobs and income  DENVER: Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney said Wednesday that if President Barack Obama is re-elected it will usher in an era of falling household incomes and chronic joblessness.   "If the president is re-elected will you see a middle-class squeeze," Romney said in a televised debate. "You will see chronic unemployment -- 43 straight months with unemployment above eight percent."   Romney finished looking the more confident of the two contenders, but the debate never caught fire. Obama concluded with a vow to continue to fight for middle-income families in tough economic times.   "You know, four years ago, I said that I'm not a perfect man, and I wouldn't be a perfect president, and that's probably a promise Governor Romney probably thinks I've kept," Obama said.   "I also promised I would fight every single day on behalf of the American people, the middle class and all of those striving. I've kept that promise, and if ...

IMF head warns eurozone to act fast on debt crisis  PARIS: IMF head Christine Lagarde urged eurozone leaders Wednesday to move fast to resolve the bloc's debt crisis, warning in an interview that the latest boost to markets by an ECB decision could soon wear off.   "No one has the luxury of time, this is really urgent," Lagarde told the French daily Figaro in comments to appear on Thursday.   She said a decision by the European Central Bank to buy debt issued by struggling eurozone governments was "fundamental," ...

BUENOS AIRES: Argentina on Wednesday alleged that Ghana is violating international law by holding one of its frigates under a court order by creditors suing Buenos Aires over its 2002 bond default.   Ghana's seizure of the warship Libertad "is against the Vienna Convention on diplomatic immunity," an Argentine foreign ministry statement said, alleging the lawsuit by NML Capital was fraudulent.   "The foreign ministry has already taken steps to clarify to the African nation's government the fraud these ...

French opposition seeks more savings, less tax in 2013 budget  PARIS: France's opposition UMP party will push to rebalance the Socialist government's 2013 budget more towards spending cuts and away from tax hikes when the bill goes through parliament, a senior party member said on Wednesday.   President Francois Hollande's government presented the toughest budget in decades last week, counting mostly on tax increases to raise revenues.   Conservative UMP lawmakers want 5-10 billion euros ($6.5-13 billion) in additional savings measures to be written into the budget and tax ...
