The main themes on the campaign trail these days --- 'you know me, you can trust me' and Republican Mitt Romney's version 'you know him, you can't trust him.' In Mentor Ohio, Obama addressed a crowd of more than 4,000 people. Obama said voters need to be able to trust their president because they can't predict what challenges he'll face in office. SOUNDBITE: U.S. President Barack Obama saying: "When you elect a president you don't know what kind of emergencies may happen, you don't know what problems he or she may deal with. But you do want to be able to trust your president. You want to know that your president means what he says and says what he means," Obama said. "After four years as president, you know me. You may not agree with every decision I've made, you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change. But you know what I believe. You know where I stand. You know I tell the truth. And you know I'll fight for you and your families every single day as hard as I know how. You know that." In New Hampshire, Romney warned voters of "four more years of gridlock" if the president is re-elected. SOUNDBITE: Republican Mitt Romney saying: "You know the debt ceiling is going to come up again and there will be threats of shutting down the government or perhaps default of one kind or another and that means an economy that gets chilled and jobs that are hard to find. The president just can't work with Congress, he's proven that time and time again. I actually understand what its like to work across the aisle. I will work on a regular basis with leaders in the House and the Senate, both Democrats and Republicans, I'll find those people of good heart and good faith that are willing to put the interests of the people ahead of the interest of politics. We can do it. I've done it before. We are going to work in Washington to help the people." Obama and Romney are tied at 46 percent in the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll --- a statistical dead heat with just days remaining until Election day.
