Pres. Obama Speaks To Crowd In Seminole, Fla.

SEMINOLE (CBSMiami) — At a Seminole, Fla. rally on Saturday, President Barack Obama said Republicans are “dead wrong” in calling America a country in decline.

The president said the nation is still an engine of ingenuity and the envy of the world.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan recently spoke of the country’s decline in noting that the national debt surpassed $16 trillion.

Obama, coming off his Democratic convention days ago, told the crowd that America’s “basic bargain” is at stake in the election — the promise that “if you work hard it will pay off.”

He pledged to make education more affordable, reduce dependence on foreign oil and slash deficits “without sticking it to the middle class.”
