Clinton Energizes Obama Supporters in Akron
According to local media outlets, former President Bill Clinton brought Obama supporters to their feet at the John S. Knight Center in downtown Akron on Thursday night.
It appears former President Bill Clinton can still wield some political thunder.
At least, that's how local media coverage described Clinton's rally at Akron's John S. Knight Center on Thursday night.
In the home stretch to Election Day, Clinton brought hundreds of folks to their feet as he focused on job creation and the auto industry.
Here's the roundup:
The Plain Dealer: Clinton touted Obama's multi-billion dollar auto bailout, saying the President's efforts created 200,000 new jobs versus losing 1 million. With that, he received one of many roars from the audience.
Fox 8 News: Clinton criticized Romney for his vagueness on balancing the budget and rejecting the auto bailout. Clinton charged that, if elected, Romney would hinder growth of the middle class and take credit for creating jobs that Obama "set the stage for."
The Press-News: Clinton said he was confident that voters would dismiss Romney's "bogus" campaign ads and support Obama's lengthy record to swing Ohio in the President's favor.
