Monday night's third and final presidential debate will be the latest opportunity for Mitt Romney to again use the Etch A Sketch that his campaign hinted at months ago.
Mitt Romney's top strategist ignited a firestorm in March when he suggested that the candidate could "Etch A Sketch" away his campaign from the primaries — but Mr. Romney has yet to do a general-election wipe-down.
The Romney and Obama campaigns — both convinced that their man is more trustworthy with the future of Medicare — ramped up the debate this weekend, with operatives trading prickly barbs, the president dismissing Republican plans as "snake oil" and Paul Ryan bringing his 78-year-old mother into the fracas.
President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney spent a quiet Sunday attending church with their families as the two politicians rested up for the campaign's final 11 weeks and the approaching party nominating conventions.

Undercutting what his top adviser said two days ago, Mitt Romney on Wednesday flatly stated that President Obama's individual mandate, which the Supreme Court upheld last week, is indeed "a tax."
A semantic dispute over what defines "a tax" or "a penalty" has pushed Mitt Romney's presidential campaign deeply off message as he struggles for the right response to last week's Supreme Court ruling upholding the health care law.
It looks like a tax, smells like a tax, and the Supreme Court says it must be a tax. But politicians in both parties are squirming over how to define the Thing in President Barack Obama's health care law that requires people to pay up if they don't get health insurance.
At least in politics, "tax" is a four-letter word.
In the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling last week, Republicans on Capitol Hill spent four days laying out an attack on President Obama's health care law as a massive tax increase.
While congressional Republicans have seized on the Supreme Court's ruling that President Obama's health care overhaul is constitutional as a tax, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's top campaign strategist undercut that line of argument Monday, saying that the governor agrees with Mr. Obama that the law is not a tax.
Could President Obama's re-election campaign be overmarketed and overpackaged in the trite era of political "likability"?
Just when the American economy was looking like a global bright spot, a spate of bad news last week showed that the U.S. also has succumbed to a major slowdown — sending President Obama and his team scrambling to explain Friday's disappointing unemployment numbers.
Fehrnstrom says the passenger then became enraged and took a swing at Romney.
Spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom says Romney and his wife were on an Air Canada flight to Los Angeles on Monday when Romney asked the passenger sitting in front of his wife, Ann, to raise his seat back before takeoff.
