Romney in Orange City
(Orange City) -- Republican presidential nominee, Governor Mitt Romney addressed five key points of interest during his political rally held today at Orange City on the campus of Northwestern College. More than 3,000 people crowded inside the gym to hear Romney. Almost immediately, Romney spoke about President Obama's failures.
Romney zeroed in on the jobs report that was issued this morning, saying it is disappointing. He acknowledged there is a lot of bad news, but he predicts that America will come roaring back. He told the 3,000 plus crowd that he knows how to get the private sector to create 12 million new jobs, and he says millions of jobs can be created in the energy sector and he wants to take full advantage of America's resources for energy.
Romney says America needs to take advantage of the Keystone pipeline from Canada. He says it means turning the Gulf of Mexico back on for more drilling. Romney also says he would issue more permits for oil exploration.
Romney says we also need to use more natural gas, saying it is our "ace in the hole."
The Republican candidate also focused on job skills for workers. He says he will champion small businesses by reducing taxes and regulations, and he will take advantage of trade opportunities and punish those nations that don't follow the rules involving trade. Romney concluded his 23 minute speech by telling the enthusiastic crowd he knows what it takes to get people jobs and how to reduce the ever-growing debt. He reminded the gathering of the $16 trillion dollar debt and pointed to a student holding a sign about the new debt
