DAYTON, Ohio—The presidential debates are over, Election Day is two week away—and the gloves are officially off.

For weeks, President Barack Obama has criticized Republican nominee Mitt Romney for moderating his position on a range of issues throughout the campaign, but in a Tuesday afternoon rally here, he suggested that his challenger was not "trustworthy" enough to hold the nation's highest office.

"We joke about Gov. Romney being all over the map, but it speaks to something important. It speaks of trust. There's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. Trust matters," Obama said during his speech at a rally here. "You want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander in chief is trustworthy. That he means what he says. That he's not just making stuff up depending on whether it's convenient or not."

Obama added: "[Gov. Romney] is terrific at making presentations about stuff he thinks is wrong with America, but he sure can't give you an answer about what will make it right. And that's not leadership that you can trust."
