Race For White House NarrowsCloseWith Rick Santorum out of the race for the White House, Mitt Romney can now focus on President Obama.

Romney's polls show him weak with women.

On Wednesday he argued the president should to have that problem.

"92.3% of all the jobs lost during the Obama years have been lost by women. 92.3%!!" Romney claimed.

It's actually just 39.7% since the start of the recession in 2007 according to Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Romney isn't the only one focusing attacks on President Obama.

The president is the target of a new ad tying him to high gas price, from the Karl Rove Super-Pac backing Romney.

President Obama's campaign responded by going after Romney in a new web ad, replaying primary season soundbites they hope will turn away women.

They show Romney calling for Roe Vs. Wade to be overturned, and an end to Planned Parenthood.

President Obama is also pushing to get rid of tax cuts for the rich.

"It's just plain wrong that middle class Americans pay a higher share of their income in taxes that some millionaires and billionaires," he told supporters.

He noted a recent Republican president called that not just wrong but crazy.

"That wild-eyed, socialist, tax-hiking class warrior was Ronald Reagan," Mr. Obama noted.

Mr. Obama says his "Buffett Rule" taxing income over a million dollars at 30% could be renamed
"The Reagan Rule".
