CHARLOTTE, N.C.--U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin insisted that "America is coming back," as he gave opening remarks to introduce President Obama on the night of the president's speech.

"Come to Belvidere, Illinois and meet 5,000 proud Chrysler UAW workers," the Illinois Democrat said. He was the latest of many people tonight to point out that Mitt Romney once said of the collapsing auto industry: "let them go bankrupt."President Obama said: 'Let them go back to work.'"
