Paul Ryan, Condoleezza Rice Rally in Berea

VP candidate, former secretary of state


Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan touted Mitt Romney's five-point plan for the future and said President Barack Obama has offered no similar vision during a campaign stop at Baldwin Wallace University in Berea Wednesday.

Ryan told a crowd of about 1,000 that the President failed to provide a solid plan for the next four years during the second Presidential debate Tuesday night, Cleveland.com is reporting

“We saw the president not offer a single idea or lesson learned from the failure of the last four years,” said Ryan, the running mate of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

In contrast, Ryan said Romney's five-point plan for developing small businesses and producing energy in North America offers specifics the Republicans would use to govern.

He drew cheers when he talked about Romney's performance in the debate.

“Didn’t Mitt Romney do a great job for us last night?” The Washington Post reported on its blog.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who made her first appearance on behalf of the Romney campaign, directed several of her comments to the women in the crowd, according to WKYC.com.  

"So many women in these hard economic times don't know if they will ever work again. Americans are feeling terrible economic pain," Rice said.

This marked Ryan's third visit to northeast Ohio in as many months on behalf of GOP candidate Mitt Romney. He spoke at Walsh University in North Canton on Aug. 16 and in Westlake on Sept. 4.

Romney was in Brunswick for a pancake breakfast in June, visited Bedford Heights in September and made a campaign stop in Cuyahoga Falls Oct. 9.

Both Ryan and Rice were expected to visit the Cleveland Browns' nearby practice facility in Berea after the rally.

Jean (and others), point well taken. I was trying to share a topic on which I think people every where might be interested in reading. I did not mean to contribute to the deluge of "spam" on the internet and for those you consider this spam, I apologize. The Patch is an excellent media resource and I do not want to burden its loyal users in any way. Trent
