Reset button attempt!

Obama campaign loves this “reset button” metaphor. It’s obviously different from, say, an Etch-a-Sketch. http://t.co/nU21fS5z

Both are giving speeches on the economy in Ohio at the same time. En garde! (fancy citizen of the world talk.)

GOP Candidate Mitt Romney will also be in the battleground state of Ohio today for a speech in Cincinnati.

More from Fox News.

President Obama and Mitt Romney will face off on the economy Thursday, each delivering a major campaign address in Ohio in the closest they’ve come yet to a general election debate.

The two opponents will not be sharing the same stage. Obama will deliver what is described as a “framing” speech to a community college crowd in Cleveland. Romney will be at a manufacturing company in Cincinnati for a rally. They plan to speak at virtually the same time Thursday afternoon.

Reporters on the ground are covering the action.

Romney Campaign bus – emblazoned with Romney Campaign logo – is driving around Pres Obama's speech site honking its horn.

The Romney bus is now circling the event space and honking. Obama supporters in line jeer.

Heh. That must not sit well with President Obama and his super thin skin.

@ZekeJMiller Maybe Anna Wintour will design a scarf to muffle the sound.

Oh, snap! Good one from Mitt Romney’s press secretary!

Twitter users don’t have much hope for the President’s speech and predict no change.

Obama in Ohio to reboot his campaign after the reboots in Kansas and in Ohio six weeks ago failed, just like his Presidency. #doingfine

Twitchy will monitor the speeches and bring you all the juicy details. Will the private sector again be “doing fine,” according to President Obama? Stay tuned!
