POTUS Stumps In Athens

President Obama held a campaign rally at Ohio University last night, saying he has two daughters and doesn't want them to be paid less for the same job as a man.

An estimated 14-thousand people attended the rally that was part of a focus on winning the votes of young people and women. The President also criticized the economic plan of his opponent, Republican Mitt Romney.


Obama – "The five-point plan really boils down to one point—folks at the very top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. So they can pay lower taxes. They can use offshore accounts. They can buy a company, load it up with debt, lay off the workers, strip away the pensions, send the jobs overseas—and still make a big profit doing it."
