In Cincinnati Mitt Romney Promotes Agenda For 'Winning Season'

Mitt Romney is promoting an agenda that he says will bring "a winning season" back to the country. The Republican presidential nominee wants to develop natural resources that will help make the U.S. energy independent. He wants to open new markets for American products and crack down on unfair trade practices by competitors. Romney, back campaigning after the GOP convention, told a Cincinnati crowd that workers and schoolchildren will get the skills they need to succeed in a global economy. He promises to cut the deficit and work toward balancing the budget, and help businesses by abolishing President Barack Obama's health law and burdensome federal regulations. Lower taxes for companies also are on the agenda. He's promising to unite the country and accuses Obama's campaign of "divisiveness and bitterness."
