Obama Follows Presidential Debate With Speech at University of Wisconsin at Madison
In the typically Republican state of Wisconsin, Obama is currently leading 51.4 to 43.8, reports RealClearPolitics.com.
The beginning of Obama’s speech was a lot of rebuttal to things Romney said during the debate including repeatedly referring to him as “the guy on stage last night.”
He spoke about the economy and how it “grows from the middle out” meaning from the middle class, so if taxes for the middle class are cut they spend more money, leading to businesses hiring more people.
Obama discussed renewable energy and wanting to control more of this countries energy including wind and solar power as well as improving the gas mileage of vehicles and wanting to cut oil imports by 2020.
He also talked about education and said “education is the only reason I’m standing on this stage.”
He, of course, addressed Romney’s reference to cutting funding public television and made a joke saying “Thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on Big Bird, it’s about time. We didn’t know that Big Bird was driving the federal deficit. But that’s what we heard last night,” Then when someone in the crowd yelled “Elmo,” he replied, “Elmo too? Elmo’s gotta watch out.”
