On Saturday, President Obama made two campaign stops in New Hampshire, in Windham and Rochester, where he spoke about what he says are fundamental differences between himself and Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.
The President has been focusing on the economy in recent weeks, and on his vision for strengthening the middle class, which he says differs from Mitt Romney, who advocates a more top-down approach.
In addition, the President made a stop at at Mack's Apples in Londonderry, N.H., where he purchased apples, peaches, and caramel apple mix. He spoke to workers at the market and local residents in town for a festival.
It has been a week since the Romney campaign announced that Wisconsin Congressman and House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan would be the Vice Presidential nominee, bringing the focus of the campaign back to the economy. Rep. Ryan is the author of the House Republican budget plan, which requires large cuts in government spending in an effort to balance the budget.
The President is trying to link the Ryan plan, which Democrats are characterizing as extremist, to the Romney campaign, in an attempt to further distinguish his plans from those of his rival.
