Until I get a longer video, we’re stuck with only a couple of clips from President Obama’s Ohio speech today which I watched live, so I can report that he was greeted with a lot of loud, enthusiastic cheering, a few boisterous rounds of “Four more years!” and shouts of “I love you!”
The bus tour stop was outside of Toledo, Ohio, which is home to a major Jeep assembly plant.
Unfortunately, this one is via the conservative Townhall site:
“They put two wars on a credit card, tax cuts not paid for, a prescription drug plan not paid for, left us the tab.”
He forgot to add, “And the GOP has obstructed every one of my jobs plans.”
His point about Bill Clinton is that back then, pre-tax cut, the economy was just fine, thank you.
And there’s this clip in which President Obama explains how he has worked to improve trade with China and keep more jobs in the U.S.:
What have you done to save or increase the number of American jobs, Willard Romney? I mean other than outsourcing them.
(CNN) – His comments come the same day his administration filed an unfair trade complaint with the World Trade Organization, claiming China places inconsistent duties on American-made automobiles. [...]
Ohio has long been a key swing state in presidential elections, and a Quinnipiac survey released last week showed Obama with an edge over Romney, 47% to 38%.
In 2008, Obama won the state with 52% over Sen. John McCain at 47%.
