Ricky Mulvey reports from the rally and conducted interviews with Loveland area residents, and an interview with former U. S. Sixth Court District Judge Nathaniel Jones.
Jones said it was personal to him, "He's like family. It's very personal."He also said that he (Obama) is clear headed and has complete command of the issues. "I am fully in support of his approach to the solutions to the problems we face."
Speaking of the crisis in Libya when an American Ambassador and three consulate workers were recently killed, and unrest in Northern Africa and the Middle East Jones said, "Well, it is hard for anyone that is not in the position he is in, to know what would be appropriate. He has access to information that nobody else has as a president of the United States. So, it's important for people to back off and defer to the judgement he makes."
Miami Township resident Bonnie McNett said that Governor Mitt Romney seemed out of touch with ordinary Americans. She said that Romney's social and economic status,"Has him a little too far removed from what matters to real people."
Loveland resident Amanda Smeller said she feels better off since Obama took office and specifically mentioned Obama's health care initiative. She said she took the day off because she felt it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the current president, "And Hopefully our next." Smeller said, "When I ask myself am I better off now than four years ago, I am."
Sycamore High School sophomore Diamond Calton also commented on camera. She said, "I like President Obama and Miss Michelle because they are very down to earth."
