Obama: Government not the source of every problem

Posted:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

President Barack Obama counters rival Mitt Romney by declaring that government can't solve every problem but is not the source of every problem. He says Americans should not only accept responsibility for themselves but also for their communities and the nation.

   Obama's message, at a Milwaukee fundraiser, was a response to Romney's recurrent critique that government is too intrusive. It was Obama's first appearance in Wisconsin since February. Shortly after the fundraiser, Obama stopped at a sausage shop and bought kielbasa and a bratwurst, pausing for photographers as he took a bite.

   Obama held two events in the state -- one for 550 supporters who paid at least $250 apiece and another for 20 people who each paid $25,000. Former Milwaukee Brewers baseball slugger Hank Aaron was the star attraction.
