Thousands Show Up To Hear Mitt Romney at Pancake Breakfast in Brunswick

Roughly 3,000 people showed up for free pancakes and to listen to the presumed Republican presidential candidate say he can improve the economy.

BRUNSWICK -- The rain didn't seem to dampen the enthusiasm for presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Brunswick Sunday.

The Plain Dealer estimated that some of the 2,500 and 3,000 who showed up at Mapleside Farms in Brunswick for the free pancakes and to listen to the candidate speak, waited for hours in the rain. 

In his first of three bus stops in Ohio Sunday, Romney compared the parting clouds to the country's economic future, according to the Washington Post.

“The sun is coming out, guys! Three-and-a-half years of dark clouds are about to part. It’s about to get a little warmer around this country, a little brighter,” Romney said, according to The New York Times blog The Caucus

Romney's wife, Ann, two of his sons and four of his 18 grandchildren attended the Father's Day event. Also joining him was Ohio Rep. Senator Rob Portman, considered a possible vice presidential candidate, according to The Washington Post.

Romney also made an appearance on the CBS television show Face the Nation Sunday and said he thought President Barack Obama's recent executive order on immigration was political. But Romney did not say whether he would appeal it, according to the Boston Globe.

To celebrate the United States' bicentennial birthday, Jefferson's portrait was used for the new two-dollar bill, one of the rarest dollar bills in the U.S. currency system. Thanks a lot. Regards, http://www.writeessayforme.com/write-essay-on-for-me-what-is-your-topic/ | help me with my essay
