Obama: ‘Reckless and wrong or steady and strong”by Dara Kam | October 25th, 2012
Two days before early voting begins in Florida, President Obama wooed an overflow crowd in Ybor City, echoing his recent campaign themes of GOP presidential foe Mitt Romney as “reckless and wrong” for the country.
Obama hammered Romney on women’s issues, accusing the former Massachusetts governor of wanting to “turn back the clock 50 years” on women’s reproductive rights and stressing his administration’s support for women’s health care in the federal health care policy.
“Women should be making their own health care decisions,” Obama said to a cheering crowd of more than 8,500 attendees. “That’s where it belongs and that’s where it will stay as long as I’m president.”
Under pressure from Romney’s campaign for a lack of details regarding his plan for a second term, Obama urged supporters to visit his website to check out his five-point plan.
But the president made a slight gaffe when reaching for a copy of the plan that had slipped off the podium.
“Where’s my plan?” he joked.
Brandon resident Sharon Troupe said she plans to cast her ballot for Obama on Saturday, the first day of early voting.
“He’s doing the best and we are improving. Mitt Romney just wants to take us back and we can’t have that,” she said.
