PORTLAND, Ore. — President Barack Obama got personal with his stump speech Tuesday.
“Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood. I think that’s a bad idea,” Obama said to about 950 donors at the Oregon Convention Center as he highlighted differences with Mitt Romney. “I’ve got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices.”
The president attacked Romney on a broad range of other policy points too. “On almost every issue there’s a contrast,” the president said before turning to his decision on gays in the military.
“I believe we did the right thing in ending ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’” Obama said. “I believe that fairness is a hallmark of this country. Mr. Romney disagrees when it comes to Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. But we’re not going backwards. We’re going forward.”
