Obama, Romney give dueling speeches on economy
In the battleground state of Ohio, President Obama said on Thursday that the election represents a choice between his vision for the economy and a return to policies that caused the recession, in a speech intended to reframe the economic debate. Obama's GOP challenger, Mitt Romney, also gave a speech on the economy, assailing Obama for failing to orchestrate a stronger recovery.
President Obama comes off looking like a "regular guy," at least when compared to the consultant-programmed Mitt Romney, says Matt Latimer at The Daily Beast.
