During a stop in Akron Thursday, former president Bill Clinton took aim at Republican Presidential challenger Mitt Romney and made a closing argument for President Obama.

Speaking before a crowd of 1,850, Clinton criticized Romney’s campaign ads implying GM and Chrysler are adding jobs in China at the expense of Ohio jobs, a claim the companies have flatly rejected. And he summed up the Democrats’ case for re-electing the President this way:

CLINTON: “Who’s most likely, to restore the middle class with more jobs and rising incomes and with poor people having an honorable way to work their way into it? Who’s more likely to invest in the jobs of the 21st century that will grow in number and educate and empower people to do them? And who’s most likely to take us all along for the ride instead of leaving a bunch of us behind? Those are the three issues. The answer is Barack Obama to all those issues.”

Clinton then headed to Chillicothe for his third Ohio stop of the day. Both Romney and Mr. Obama will be in the state this weekend.
