Romney rocks Colorado crowd

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., July 10 (UPI) -- Mitt Romney's anti-Obama stump speech struck a chord with several hundred supporters who roared their approval in Grand Junction, Colo., Tuesday.

Speaking to about 800 people at a high school gymnasium, the former Massachusetts governor, who is the presumptive Republican nominee for president, hammered away at the Democratic president's healthcare, energy and social policies, The Denver Post reported. He also went after the mainstream media, cuts in military spending and "union bosses," the newspaper said.

Romney said putting more federal restrictions on production of natural gas and oil is not the way to help rev up the U.S. economy.

"The federal government is trying to insert itself into [natural gas] fracking. Do these policies help create jobs?" Romney asked the crowd gathered in an energy rich part of the state.

The crowd in the energy-producing state responded with a resounding "No!"

The Post noted the gym was filled with political posters, including ones declaring "Commit to Mitt," "Juntos con Romney" and "Mitt = Jobs." Members of the audience hoisted signs saying "Colorado Believes."
