President Obama slipped a little dig against his Republican opponent into his speech at Lorain County Community College on Wednesday.
Hard to read it any other way.
In describing his vision of a country in which everyone is responsible for themselves, but also gets help from those who went before them, Mr. Obama said this:
"Somebody gave me an education. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn’t. But somebody gave us a chance -- just like these folks up here are looking for a chance."
The apparent veiled reference to the wealthy Republican nominee Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann Romney, prompted this response, when requested, from Romney spokesman Ryan Williams:
“After three failed years in office President Obama cannot run on his abysmal economic policies and he will do and say anything to distract from his record of higher taxes, record deficits and skyrocketing gas prices. Ohio voters are smart enough to see through the President’s dishonest attacks and they are ready to replace him with a successful businessman like Mitt Romney who can turn around our economy.”
The President was introduced at Lorain County Community College by 34-year-old student Bronson Harwood of Vermilion who said he was getting a chance at a career in high-tech machining thanks to a Workforce Investment Act grant that was paying for an 18-week course at Lorain.
