President Barack Obama didn’t let a little downpour stop him from delivering his 2012 campaign message in Glen Allen, Virginia over the weekend.
The rain didn’t let up when Obama addressed a crowd in Glen Allen recently, as heavy rainstorms drenched the onlookers who waited to hear the President.
Standing before about 900 people at the Walkerton Tavern & Garden, Obama went on the attack against opponent Mitt Romney’s record as head of a private equity firm, and contrasted his middle class childhood with Romney’s wealth.
“I don’t want a pioneer in outsourcing. I want some insourcing. I want to bring companies back.”
Obama spoke to the crowd in this town near Richmond, his soaked blue shirt sticking to his arms and rain dripping from his face, as supporters chanted, “Four more years.”
This isn’t the first time Obama stood in the rain. Back in 2008, he paid tribute to more than 9,000 supporters who turned out to an outdoor rally in Pennsylvania, despite freezing rain and driving winds.
