I was invited to this event, “invited” the same way every Democrat in a 5 county area gets invited (I got an email). I didn’t go because I’m in Michigan, but I’m sorry I missed this:
At the kick-off rally for President Obama’ first campaign bus tour of the election season, former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, a co-chair of the Obama 2012 campaign, assailed presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s off-shore accounts.
“Oh, what a contrast, my friends, between these two men who would be president!” Strickland said, standing outside the Wolcott House Museum. “President Obama is betting on America and American workers, and Mitt Romney is betting his resources in the Cayman Islands, in Bermuda, in Switzerland and God only knows where else he is putting his resources.”
Ouch. Ann Romney better step up the victim rhetoric.
Strickland has a come-from-nothing personal story and he’s a wonderful speaker when he gets rolling. He’s all blunt populist at these Democratic events and he clearly enjoys that role.
