SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — Striking a new tone, President Obama four days ahead of his reelection test told voters Friday that he "loves" working with Republicans.
Facing criticism from Republican rival Mitt Romney that he has failed to govern in a bipartisan manner, Mr. Obama tried to convince Ohioans that he is willing and eager to cross the aisle to break gridlock in Washington in his second term.
"When the other party has been with me to help middle-class families, I love working with them," the president told about 4,000 supporters at a high school gym in Springfield, Ohio. "When we cut taxes for middle-class families and small businesses, some of them cooperated. When we came together to repeal 'Don't ask, don't tell,' there were some courageous Republican senators who stood up. I appreciate that. I will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward."
Mr. Romney, campaigning in Wisconsin, said the president has fallen short on his promises, including a pledge in 2008 to "change the tone" in Washington.
"He promised to be a 'post-partisan president' but he became the most partisan — blaming, attacking, dividing," Mr. Romney said.Here are some examples of President Obama and Democrats attitude towards Republicans.
