You six weeks from today is Election Day and Republicans have been exhorting their candidate to do more to save more to get tougher on the president.
Chief political correspondent Carl Cameron reports on how Mitt Romney is doing.
Mitt Romney promised to spread prosperity and freedom worldwide by linking US foreign aid to freer trade.
And joked about being introduced to the Clinton Global Initiative conference -- the most popular Democrat but the Democrats recent convention.
If there's one thing we've we've learned this election season by the way.
It is that a few words from Bill Clinton can do a man a lot of good yeah.
Well I got to do now is wait a couple of days for that -- to happen so.
Amid mounting chaos overseas Romney announced plans for a major foreign policy speech blasting the president in the weeks ahead.
For failing to clearly and probably project American strength and values.
But when the GOP ticket emerged together today for a rally in the battleground state of Ohio where they trail in the polls.
-- And extra.
Romney blasted the president saying his description of anti American terrorism and violence in the Middle East and North Africa has bumps in the road for a new leadership.
It means that with the developments in the Middle East these days.
When we have -- we have eight.
And an ambassador assassinated.
You we don't have a president calling these things bumps in the road we have a president takes it serious and -- America on track to -- world affairs.
With a early voting and absentee balloting under -- and half the states.
Romney is now opening and closing his events -- this pitch.
-- I need you to find people who went out there and voted for Barack Obama -- -- -- senate join our team in an interview with Fox News Romney and Ryan both blasted the president for refusing to call the attacks on the US consulate in Libya terrorism.
When his own administration is already done so.
-- clear that it was a terrorist act of al-Qaeda assassination.
Why that's an act of terror.
And that's what this was the -- what has been explained by a by the members administration the White House doesn't want to admit it but that's what happens.
And it's a very troubling and disturbing development well I think when the president said the developments in the Middle East.
I like bumps in the road I think he badly misunderstand the nature what's happening in the Middle East -- just the assassination of our diplomats.
But it Muslim Brotherhood leader becoming the president of Egypt.
120000 people being killed in Syria and Iran moving towards nuclear capability that the developments in the Middle East are far from being bumps in the road and.
So I would say.
This is part of the story of when we project weakness overseas.
By gutting the military with the president's devastating defense cuts by -- -- kidding when you speak.
Oversees about these issues -- projects weakness.
And when American projects weakness our adversaries are more willing to test us they have more -- incentives to attack us and our allies are less willing to trust us.
Romney and Ryan will part company campaign separately tomorrow but here in Ohio where Romney does trail the polls -- have a new campaign or by -- side.
The golden bear golfing legend an Ohio native Jack Nicklaus will be campaigning with a Rodney in Ohio tomorrow.
The campaign's political director came back and talk to reporters on the plane today to argue that public polls are just an accurate.
And that in their view the Romney camps internal data is more precise and and if they say.
It's basically a virtual tie going down to the wire here in Ohio and across the country six weeks from tonight right.
42 days Carl Cameron live in Ohio Carl thank you home --
