MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- President Barack Obama continues to point out what he contends are a series of deliberate misstatements by rival Mitt Romney.

A day after the first presidential debate, the Obama campaign is pointing to Romney’s positions on tax cuts, education and outsourcing as misleading to the middle class.

Speaking to about 30,000 people in the college town of Madison, Wis., Obama said he’s searching for the “real Mitt Romney.”

Vice President Joe Biden sounded a similar theme earlier in a rally in Iowa. Biden said says presidential races “get down to character” and candidates must mean and do what they say.
