Obama and Romney stump in Ohio
 
Mitt Romney is coming under fire for belittling 47 percent of the electorate, but President Obama isn't exactly gaffe-free himself: In 2008, he quipped that "bitter" rural voters "cling to guns or religion."

President Obama and Mitt Romney will both be in Ohio all day Wednesday, trying to pick up votes in the crucial, battleground state. It's the first time in about two months that the two have been on the same turf. Obama will stop at Bowling Green State University and Kent State University, while his opponent will host a business roundtable in Bedford Heights before heading to Toledo. A new Washington Post poll shows Obama with an 8-point lead against Romney. No GOP candidate has ever won the White House without carrying the Buckeye State.
