Did you hear the latest? Romney canceled a stop in Orlando today because he's too exhausted from campaigning this weekend. That's the image the Romney campaign is going with ... the old man is too tired to speak to Orlando senior citizens. Or maybe, he doesn't want to hear what Orlando senior citizens want to say to him. Since Romney is too tired to visit, wasn't it nice of the Obama-Biden Truth Team to put together this video of Florida seniors talking about the Romney-Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it so they can give more tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires?
Here's an idea: if campaigning is to exhausting for Mitt Romney, perhaps he doesn't have the energy needed to be President of the United States.
What do Floridians think about the Romney-Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it?
On SCREEN: We asked FloridiansThis is what the Obama campaign had to say about Romney cancelling his trip to Orlando today:
On SCREEN: what they think of the Romney-Ryan plan
Woman #1: Well, I heard that Mitt Romney had chosen his running mate, and it was Paul Ryan.
On SCREEN: and what that means for Medicare
Woman #2: Health care is to me is my number one priority now that I'm going on 65.
Man #1: I've heard that there are cuts across the board on social programs.
Woman #2: Instead of cutting what can be cut, and not hurting the American people.
Woman #1: It just doesn't make any sense to cut Medicare.
Woman #3: It will be a voucher plan.
Woman #1: If we cut it now, what's going to happen to our middle class?
Man #1: Florida. We have a very large elderly population.
Woman #3: Medicare is a boon for senior citizens, who without that, would choose between food and going to a doctor.
Man #2: Those kind of cuts are going to be incredibly painful to the working class person, because we're going to be paying for it. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan ... their party is looking to protect the wealthiest of the wealthy in our country.
Woman #2: He's going to help the wealthiest Americans on the backs of the middle class.
Man #2: But somebody else needs to protect us, and that's going to be our President.

[T]he Obama campaign released a new Web video and virtual postcard slamming Ryan's plan ahead of Romney's visit.
"As highlighted in the video, seniors in Florida know they can’t afford the cuts to Medicare as proposed in the Romney-Ryan budget," the statement said. "In fact, their extreme budget turns it into a voucher program that would increase seniors’ health costs by $6,350 a year. Considering these facts, it’s no wonder Ryan skipped today’s trip."
