Ryan hits Obama’s energy policy during a stop in Pennsylvania
Pittsburgh, PA, United States (4E) – Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan passed by Pennsylvania to deliver a speech on Saturday as he was on his way to campaign in critical battleground state of Ohio.
The Wisconsin congressman came from Florida where he and his running mate Mitt Romney have been campaigning for two days. He arrived before a thousand supporters that greeted him at the Atlantic Aviation where he delivered his speech in the airport hangar. Democrats and pro-Obama supporters held a press conference in a nearby location to answer Ryan’s remarks.
Ryan kept his speech relevant to his largely industrial country audience, blasting Obama’s policy on energy and charged that the president does not have an agenda for his second term.
Wearing a casual red and gray jacket, Ryan used his 13-minute speech to slam Obama’s record on energy production and the economy, saying that the president does not have a plan for America if he is elected for another four-year term.
Ryan is known for his criticism of the administration’s energy policy, but Saturday’s speech was more focused on the president’s lack of an energy plan that will help people go back to work and keep energy prices low.
He concluded by urging Pennsylvania supporters to help his ticket win the race for the White House in the Nov. 6 elections.
Immediately, the Obama campaign responded to the attacks made by Ryan on the president’s energy policy by claiming that the youthful congressman is either not aware of Romney’s own record on energy or he is simply not telling the truth.
