President Obama is talking about "trust" on the campaign trail, making it a major part of his stump speech since the third debate Monday night. In Davenport, Iowa Wednesday, Obama contrasted his consistency with his depiction of Mitt Romney as someone who is constantly changing his positions. "Iowa, you know me," Obama said. "You know that I say what I mean. And I mean what I say."
"We joke about Romnesia, but all of this speaks to something that is really important and that the issue of trust. There is no more serious issue on a presidential campaign than trust. Trust matters. And here's the thing. Iowa, you know me. You know that I say what I mean. And I mean what I say."
He continued: "And you can take and videotape things I said 10 years ago, 12 years ago, and you would say, man, this is the same guy. Has the same values. Cares about the same people. Doesn't forget where he came from. Knows who he is fighting for."
Obama had a similar line in Dayton, Ohio Tuesday. "Ohio, you know me," the president said. "You know I mean what I say. You know that I do what I say I'm gonna do."
