Obama doesn't forget to mention 'Romnesia' in Tampa stop

From the Tampa Bay Times:

TAMPA — President Barack Obama asked an early-morning crowd in Ybor City to "help me keep moving America forward," warning them Mitt Romney is hoping they'll come down with "a severe case of Romnesia" when it's time to vote.

"It comes down to trust ... who you can trust to make sure that when something unexpected happens, he or she is going to be thinking about your families, your future," Obama told the enthusiastic crowd at Ybor Centennial Park. "Trust matters. And Florida, you know me, you know I say what I mean and I mean what I say. We haven't finished all the work that we set out to do in 2008. But every single day when I set foot in that Oval Office, I'm thinking of you."

Obama visited Tampa as part of a nonstop, two-day tour of swing states.

"We pulled an all-nighter last night," said Obama, who slept on Air Force One as it traveled from Nevada to Florida. He ticked off the states he's visited already and where he's headed next, including a stop in Chicago for some early voting.

"I can't tell you who I'm voting for, it's a secret ballot," Obama joked, "but Michelle says she voted for me."

He implored the crowd to get out there and knock on some doors, make some calls, "vote for me."

"We can write the next chapter together," he said. "Florida, I believe in you and I'm asking you to keep believing in me."

He said, "we'll win Hillsborough County again. We'll win Florida again. We'll win this election again."
