It's loud and clear.
"Thank you so much Council Bluffs."
From hundreds of Iowans, cheering and shouting, they liked what Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan had to say.
Iowa, a crucial campagin stop Ryan says, for the republican ticket.
"Iowa and a couple of other states may very well determine what kind of country we're going to be and what kind of country we're going to have for at least another generation."
Most of Ryan's 15 minute speech criticized President Obama for the nation's debt, health care costs, tax rates, energy and oil.
He says America is headed in the wrong direction.
"He's not showing where he would lead the country, but it's not very difficult to see where it would go because it's 4 more years of the same that we simply cannot afford."
The message today, getting America back on track with a new leader, Mitt Romney.
"We think he's gonna bring fiscal responsibility back to our government and for our children's sake, I think that's really important right now."
"Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are the people we want to back."
April Sheridan and her husband crossed the river to hear Ryan. They own a small dental business in Omaha.
Sheridan says Romney and Ryan are looking out for her best interest.
"We're afraid, we're afraid of what Obama's gonna do to small business, that's our livelyhood and that means a lot to us."
Ryan repeatedly talked about the "American idea" of hard work and midwest values, as both campaigns battle to the finish to convince undecideds and try to capture Iowa.
