Election comes down to trust, says Obama

President Barack Obama warned voters on Tuesday that Republican opponent Mitt Romney cannot be trusted to deal honestly with the American public.

After three televised debates that have lifted the Romney campaign before the November 6 election, Obama maintained that unlike Romney, he had been honest with voters about his plans.

"There is no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust," Obama told supporters in Florida. "Everything he's doing right now is trying to hide his real positions in order to win this election."

Obama’s statement highlights several criticisms of Romney, from shifting policy stances to a charge that the former private-equity executive is more concerned with helping fellow millionaires than the middle class.

Romney replied by saying Obama was resorting to the attacks because he did not have any new ideas of his own.

"Attacks on me are not an agenda," Romney told 6,000 people at a rally in Henderson, Nevada. "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."

Earlier in the day, Obama also unveiled a glossy booklet featuring his second-term agenda.

The booklet contains no new proposals but could help refute the Romney camp’s message in the final two weeks of the campaign: that the country cannot afford another four years of an Obama presidency because he has no plan to fix the sluggish economy.

Romney spokesman Kevin Madden described the plan as a "glossy panic button."
