FILE - In this Aug. 28, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in Ames, Iowa. Republicans in Tampa, Florida, this week cast President Barack Obama as an executive who takes his cues from Europe, poses a threat to the traditional family and is unfamiliar with American staples like garage sales and lemonade stands. Next week in Charlotte, North Carolina, Democrats will color in their picture of Republican candidate Mitt Romney. They'll fill out what they've sketched in both the 2008 presidential campaign and the last two years of the current race. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
