President Barack Obama delivered his campaign speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 8,400 in Golden, Colorado at the Lions Park Golden Community Center on 9-13-2012. Crowds had been waiting eagerly in line before 7am and were wrapped around city blocks. Jefferson County has a diverse electorate of Democrats, Republicans, and unaffiliated voters. It is regarded as one of Colorado’s swing counties. Obama set forth his plan on taxes, energy development, college education costs, wartime efforts, and health care. In a memorable quote Obama said: “I want people around the world to hear me. To all those who would do us harm: No act of terror will go unpunished. It will not dim the light of the values we proudly present to the world.” His speech prompted roars of applause from the crowd and proved to be an electrifying and memorable event!
