Romney outlines manufacturing plan in Cincinnati speech
GOP hopeful Mitt Romney gave his own economic speech, where he called out President Obama for being “Long on words, short on action”:
Romney addressed a crowd of about 100 from a manufacturing plant of Selikop Industries, the type of small-business facility that's become a standard venue for the Republican's campaign stops. He was in Cincinnati, a Republican stronghold in the state near the Kentucky border.
Romney's campaign had billed the appearance as a dueling event to the president's major economic speech at a college gym in Cleveland, in the Democratic northeastern region of Ohio. But what Romney delivered was his standard, 20-minute campaign speech, castigating the president for the economic stimulus, the health care law and for not approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada. Romney also criticized the president's policies toward China and said that, if elected, he would label the country as a currency manipulator.
