The sleepy university town of Bowling Green Ohio, where during the school year the students outnumber the residents, was awakened this afternoon by a mighty roar. And that “mighty roar” came from presumptive Republican candidate Governor Mitt Romney.
I had the privilege of attending this rally at the Bowling Green Community Center to a standing room only crowd and all pictures here are my own. Ohio Governor John Kasich introduced Governor Romney and they received standing ovations with the roar of the crowd:
Governor Romney then took center stage where he outlined what he considered the five most important priorities he would undertake
when I become the next President of the United States.
- making the U.S. energy independent by making use of our own resources in America, including drilling for oil and mining for coal
- working on a more equal trade partnership with other countries
- balance the budget
- get teachers’ unions behind us, and students ahead
- restoring economic freedom by making the business environment more friendly
He was relaxed, fired up and worked the crowd easily. This is an impressive man who has turned into a real fireball:
We saw a dramatic change in Romney’s campaigning this day, as he vowed to take on Obama’s “you didn’t make that business” remark. My favorite poster at the rally was the one below:
Romney knocked it out of the ball park today. For those wishing to hear his entire speech and the question & answer period afterwards, Right Scoop has it.
