Obama terms Romney a salesman repacking failed ideas

Washington: Continuing humour-blended attacks on Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama, after his much-discussed 'Romnesia' jibe, today termed his Republican challenger as a "salesman" who was trying to "repackage" failed ideas this elections.

"Governor Romney is a very gifted salesman. So he's been trying in this campaign as hard as he can to repackage these ideas that didn't work, the very same policies that did not work, and he's trying to pretend that they're change," Obama said in an election speech in Springfield, Ohio.

"Have you heard him? He's going around saying 'I'm the candidate of change'. Except when you look at the policies, they're the same ones that didn't work," Obama said amidst laughter.

Addressing three election meetings in Ohio, Obama lashed out at Romney for his camp's advertisement which said that Jeep plants were going to be shipping jobs to China.

"Of course, it turns out it's not true. The car companies themselves have told Governor Romney to knock it off. Knock it off. That's what they say," he said.

"General Motors said, we think creating jobs in the US should be a source of bipartisan pride. That's what they said, and they're right. I couldn't agree more," he said.

"I understand Governor Romney has a tough time here in Ohio, because he was against saving the auto industry, which accounts for one out of eight jobs here in Ohio. So it's a problem for him, but you can't run away -- four days, five days, six days before an election - from that position, especially when you're on videotape saying the words 'let Detroit go bankrupt'. He said it," Obama said.
