PHILADELPHIA (CNN) – One thing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama gained from Senator Mitt Romney’s slip last week of Obama for Osama bin Laden was a Halloween costume – a Romney mask.
“I am thinking about wearing a Mitt Romney mask, but it has two sides to it. It goes in both directions at once,” joked Obama as the concluding response during the Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night.
“I don’t pay much attention to what Mitt Romney has to say, at least what he says this week. It may be different next week” said Obama earlier in the debate, hinting that he not only switches names but also positions.
“There is no doubt that my background is not typical of a presidential candidate. I think everybody understands that, but that is what is so powerful about America,” said Obama. He also stressed his confidence in the American people.
