President Obama spoke to more than 1,200 people Monday in Cincinnati in his first town-hall style event of the 2012 election.
Obama stressed his commitment to the middle class and to advancing LGBT rights in his remarks. The president told potential supporters what he would do to advocate for small businesses and families with average to below-average incomes, while they questioned him on in the recently-upheld health care law.
The intimacy of the town-hall style event shined through in some lighter moments: Obama led the crowd in singing happy birthday to an 18-year-old supporter named Adam and disclosed his favorite Girl Scout cookies: Thin Mints.
