The presumptive Republican nominee touted his energy and economic ideas while attacking President Obama’s healthcare plan as an impediment to job growth.

“You can go to a corner store, or a manufacturing business, and ask the person behind the counter, ‘Did President Obama’s policies make things better or worse for your business?’ And what you’re going to hear is this: 75 percent of those surveyed said that law made it harder for them to hire people.”

Romney made no reference to the parallels that have been drawn between the Obama plan and one passed while Romney was governor of Massachusetts. 

Neither did supporters like registered nurse Val Grzybowski of Strongsville.

“Cleveland Clinic, University Hospital, we’re greatly affected by Obama’s mandates. I don’t like the way Obama’s going about the socialization of medicine and I’m just glad that there’s somebody else that’s willing to let the public sector do their own thing.”

After his speech, Romney dished out pancakes with potential running mate, Ohio’s Republican Sen. Rob Portman.
Listener Comments:

Actually the pancakes were served before his arrival, and the sun shined bright when he took the stage. Excelent speech and excellent weather.
