Obama, Romney clash on China, taxes in Ohio battleground

(CNN) - President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney went head-to-head on China, taxes, and jobs on Wednesday as the two campaigned throughout Ohio.

Both sought to illustrate what the next four years would be like under their leadership as new polls indicated Obama exceeding 50% support among likely voters in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. Those are all swing states that combined will account for nearly a quarter of the electoral votes needed to win the White House.

    Obama said at Bowling Green State University. "It sounds better than talking about all the years he spent profiting from companies that sent our jobs to China.
    But Obama funded GM with American taxpayer money and they are sending jobs to China by the tens of thousands. First of all, how does he answer for his claim that the auto bailout wouldn't cost the taxpayer a dime prior to spending the money? And then how does he say with a straight face that he doesn't approve of Mitt Romney using his own private money for some investments with Chinese company while Obama himself uses new national debt money to invest in the creation of tens of thousands of Chinese jobs? He does not expect to get away with this kind of hypocracy does he?

    Romney is in the heavyweight division now and he can't handle it and everytime he speaks his ratings go down. When you think of Romneys competition he had to get past such as Bachmann,Cain,Newt,Perry you start to understand why Republicans once thought he was the best they could offer and now he is going up against a very tough opponent in Obama and he pales in comparison.

    Which one looks as though he's been controlled by strings? Give up? It's certainly not the one currently occupying the Oval Office.

    Records sadly show Romney invested in China's Youku that illegally pirated American films, as well as Chinese CNOO that continued to trade oil with Iran of all places. Not good.

    Ohio is slipping from Romney. If he doesn't get it, then it makes it a lot harder for him to win.

    As an Obama campaign volunteer from Pennsylvania, I am proud that the majority of people in my state are making the wise choice to support the President. Victory for all of the hard working campaign staff and volunteers is on the way.
