Obama: Romney trying 'to cloud' abortion stance

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says Mitt Romney's recent remark about not having abortion on his agenda is an attempt "to cloud" his rival's position on the issue. Obama says he had a "bad night" in last week's debate with Romney but says the fundamentals of the election did not change.

Obama offered his critique of Romney and his reassurance about the election in an interview with ABC News.

Romney told The Des Moines Register this week that he would not pursue abortion-related legislation if elected president.

Obama says Romney's answer was an example of Romney, in Obama's words, "hiding positions he's been campaigning on for a year and a half."

The president adds that Romney believes it is appropriate for politicians to inject themselves into women's health care decisions.
