Romney: Obama 'has no agenda'

Republican White House candidate Mitt Romney has derided his opponent's re-election effort, saying that President Barack Obama has "no agenda" to take the US forward.

Speaking at an evening rally in Florida alongside his vice-presidential running mate Paul Ryan, Mr Romney said the Obama campaign had become "the incredible shrinking campaign".

"We have big ideas, bold ideas," he said, telling the Daytona Beach crowd they only had 18 more days left of the president's agenda.

Earlier, Mr Obama denounced Mr Romney as suffering from "Romnesia", criticising him for changing his position on several policies in the months since his Republican primary victory.

Polls across the US show a close race, with Mr Obama slightly ahead in a series of swing states but Mr Romney leading nationally among likely voters.

The two men meet in their third and final presidential debate - on foreign policy - on Monday.
