WASHINGTON, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama on Saturday kicked off a tight-scheduled campaign tour in key battleground states to warm up for next week's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Obama started his "Road to Charlotte" tour with a rally before 10,000 people in Iowa, touting his success in cutting taxes, expanding health care, delivering education assistance and bringing U.S. troops back from decade-long wars.

"I will offer you what I believe is a better path forward -- a path that grows this economy, creates more good jobs, strengthens the middle class," said Obama, highlighting his acceptance speech slated for next Thursday at the Democratic party's convention.

Obama rebutted the "It's Obama's fault" argument that had been frequently used by Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his fellows during their party convention in Tampa, Florida over the last week.
