Finally, mitt romney can focus on president obama.

Romney's polls show him weak with women. He argued the president ought to have that problem.

"92.3 percent of all the jobs lost during the Obama years have been lost by women,” said Romney."

Actually it's 39.7% since the start of the recession in 2007, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Mitt Romney no longer needs to aim ads at Rick Santorum. The president is the target of new ads, funded by the Karl Rove Superpac.

President Obama's campaign went after Romney in a web ad, replaying primary season sound bites they hope will turn off women.

Obama campaigned again today to get rid of tax cuts for the rich.

"It's just plain wrong that middle class Americans pay a higher share of their
Income in taxes that some millionaires and billionaires," said President Obama.

He noted a recent republican president called that not just wrong, but crazy - Ronald Reagan.

Barack Obama says his Buffett Rule - taxing income over a million at 30 percent - could be renamed “The Reagan Rule”.

TV ads and dueling sound bites – it’s just 209 days until the presidential election.
