Mayor Nutter just gave a passionate early morning speech to the Pennsylvania delegation at the Democratic National Convention, confidently predicting that the keystone state would deliver for President Barack Obama.

“I have no doubt in my mind that Pennsylvania will come out strong for President Obama,” said Nutter to the delegation at a morning breakfast, which was streamed live online. “The only way to shut this down is to go out and kick their butts on Election Day.”

Nutter, who is set to speak at the convention between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. tonight, had some tough words for Obama’s Republican challenger Mitt Romeny, who he said was so far to the right politically that “he’ll be back around to the left before you know it.”

Nutter touted Obama’s record on job creation and education and drew applause when he said of Obama: “You want to know how tough he is? Ask Osama Bin Laden how tough President Obama is.”

Was it a preview of tonight’s address? We’ll have to tune in later to find out.
