This afternoon, candidates Mitt Romney and Barack Obama will face-off in Ohio.

Reset button attempt!

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

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.

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

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.

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!
