WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney prepare for tonight’s debate, the Obama campaign is turning to Bill Clinton to make the case against what it says is Romney’s $5 trillion tax cut plan.

Clinton, in a web video, says Romney’s approach “hasn’t worked before and it won’t work this time.”

Romney running mate Paul Ryan, meanwhile, is campaigning in Virginia, telling conservative radio host John Fredericks that supporters who are working to get out the vote for the GOP ticket are “doing the Lord’s work.”

Romney today picked up the backing of former independent presidential candidate H. Ross Perot, who wrote in the Des Moines Register that the nation can’t afford four more years of soaring debt, growing government and a weaker military.

As he headed into a meeting with advisers today in Virginia, where he’s been practicing for the debate, Obama didn’t respond to a question about a foreign policy matter that has become a focus of the Republican campaign. Yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said she takes responsibility for security at the US consulate in Libya where the US ambassador and three other Americans were killed last month. Obama wouldn’t say today whether he agrees that she was to blame.
