President Barack Obama, on the road after his official nomination at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, brought his 2-day Florida bus tour to Kissimmee & Orlando, Saturday. Responding to a rowdy crowd of several thousand packing a warm Kissimmee Civic Center, the president delivered remarks and greeted cheering supporters. Obama then went on to an unannounced stop at a Gators Dockside restaurant in south Orlando, where he surprised diners and had a beer. Sunday he is scheduled to head to Melbourne and West Palm Beach.
