Romney asks US to 'turn the page' on Obama

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Mitt Romney is plunging into the final 67 days of the presidential campaign focused on jobs and the economy.

Romney depicted President Barack Obama during his nomination acceptance speech as a well-meaning but inept man who must be replaced.

As Romney put it to delegates Thursday night: "Americans have supported this president in good faith. But today, the time has come to turn the page."

Obama will hold his own convention next week. In the meantime, he's using his powers of incumbency to make difficult Romney's mission to replace him. Obama plans to visit a Texas military base Friday, exactly two years after declaring the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq.

Today, Romney will head to Louisiana today to tour damage from Hurricane Isaac.

Romney has scheduled a last-minute visit to Lafitte, where he will tour damage with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. The storm canceled the first day of Romney's Republican convention, and his campaign has been considering a visit for several days.
