Seilkop Industries owner Ken Seilkop choked back tears as he introduced Governor Romney to a crowd gathered in his tool and die manufacturing plant. Seilkop employs a hundred people around Cincinnati and Romney opened by slamming President Obama for making things harder for small businesses.

“That stimulus didn’t put more private sector people to work. How about Obamacare? The president said the other day that he didn’t know that Obamacare was hard for small business. Oh really?”

Romney also criticized the president’s energy policies and the Dodd-Frank bill. Jamie Cusick of Amberly Village says she’s inspired by the former Massachusetts governor.

“He has all the right ideas. I’m so afraid that we’re gonna lose our American dream. Where will we go for the opportunities? The endless opportunities that our country offers? There’s nowhere else but America where you can come and start a business like this. And I feel like Gov. Romney’s gonna preserve that.

Romney is expected to return to Ohio this weekend with stops planned in Brunswick, Newark and Troy.
