The campaigns of President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney continue to flood a handful of battleground states with less than two weeks to go before the November 6 election. On Tuesday, Obama campaigned in Florida before moving on to Ohio, where he said Romney is unworthy of voters’ trust.
President Obama: “His foreign policy is from the 1980s, before the Cold War was over; his social policies, from the 1950s; and his economic policies are from the 1920s. He knows he can’t sell that, even though those are his positions, so in the closing weeks of the campaign, he’s doing everything he can to hide his true positions and tell us what he thinks you want to hear and then spend most of his time telling you what he thinks is wrong with America. Joe Biden just talked about that, talking about America is in decline. He is terrific at making presentations about stuff he thinks is wrong with America, but he sure can’t give you an answer about what will make it right. And that’s not leadership that you can trust.”
Romney, meanwhile, campaigned in Nevada, telling supporters that Obama’s campaign is losing steam.
Mitt Romney: “Attacks on me are not an agenda. The president — we’ve gone through four debates now. We’ve gone through four debates with the vice — vice-presidential debate and my debates, and we haven’t heard an agenda from the president. And that’s why his campaign is taking on water and our campaign is full speed ahead.”
