Patriot,Fear tactics and sky-is-falling rhetoric didn't
work.Hope inspires.Neither you nor Mitt gave us any
hope, just fear mongering and threats. That is why you are both irrelevant.
The most troubling thing to me is the ignorance of the electorate in this
country. It is down right scary when you consider the complete lack of
understanding of basic US history as well as basic economics by so many in this
country. I would bet that the level of understanding of a perhaps 50% of the
voting public is on the level of a 8th grader. I was shocked to hear the
responses from many Obama voters on basic questions and I know for a fact Romney
supports are much more informed and literate. You get the feeling that many
people just don't care about America - they only care what they get for
free from America and which candidate will act as Santa Clause for them. How
long can America remain free and prosperous with people like this? Does American
even deserve to be free and prosperous with so many completely ignorant people
Wow, retreading a story from November 2nd to the top of the Politics page? A
little desperate to get your candidate some traction in a state where he
doesn't need any?
re: Kathy 3:06 p.m. Nov. 3, 2012Maybe, the same firm that does
*demographic* work at a Glenn Beck rally did the headcount for Willard's
latest shindig in Ohio?
@ AmberDruReally? Your average American is content w/ yardcare or
By change, Willard means my Ivy League education is more substantial, pertinent,
& relevant than Barry's.
More Americans would be working if illegals got the boot!
@Mark B;Romney actually is a candidate of "change". Give
him 30 seconds and he'll change his position yet one more time.
Voting to return to the Bush era policies is not "real change",
it's the same-old, same-old that got us into this fiscal mess in the first
Romney is telling the truth. Yes, he will bring change because his beliefs will
be different from Obama's. Literally that is change, but what we do not
know is whether the substance of his change will be good or bad for America and
the world as a whole.Also, everyone right now should look into
Romney and his family's ownership of the companies that make and possible
control the voting machines in Ohio, and is run by his son Tagg. If that
conflict of interest doesn't scare the American people as to what Romney
could be capable of, then by all means, vote for him!
When Obama took office, the unemployment rate was 7.8%. It's now for years
later and it's 7.9%. Is this 'change you can believe in' Obama
supporters? Is this as good as it gets? Here is Obama's plan for his
second term, as spelled out in his neat 20 page glossy: Raise taxes on the rich,
hire 100,000 new teachers, and invest in green energy.Here's
the problem. "The Rich" means any business who is making over $250,000.
Teachers are great, but they don't stimulate an economy and there
isn't money for more. Do we really need to talk about Obama's record
on green energy?Here's Romney's plan: Lower taxes on
everyone. Ease up on regulations. Let businesses do what they do best WITHOUT
all the government 'help'. The only way to lower the debt is to grow.
Obama can't do it with his plan. Romney will. There is no reason to sign
up for four more years of Obama. He's inept.
Every other news outlet I have seen puts the crowd at 28,000. Typo?
Is he releasing his income taxes?
No, not everything has gone perfectly in this administration, but I don't
regret voting for Obama for one minute. The would-be McCain administration would
have been nothing but more of the same as Bush delivered - a cascade of bad
decisions, many of them with serious consequences.So here we are
today. Mitt's latest re-branding as the "change" guy is just
laughable. To make it accurate, he's have to call it "change BACK"
to a Wall Street-run economy and a neocon foreign policy. Every day would begin
by checking in with Grover Norquist and Tony Perkins, then to Congress to catch
up on the latest filibuster. NO thanks.
Mr. Obama cut the payroll tax in 2010, which nobody seems to appreciate.
Cutting taxes causes less government influence.
Soon after the election, Lockheed will announce 123,000 lay-offs due to
downsizing the military.Sounds like change and hope.
Search your hearts for the truth.... The American people aren't ready for
republican rule... yet. Especially with the extremely far-right of the party
threatening to send us back. Get off your high horse, and let people choose what
we want. You want the Gov. out of your lives, then stay out of mine.
@worfRe: canadian pipeline, the only reason oil companies want a pipeline
to the gulf is so they can ship the oil to overseas markets. If the oil is
intended for the US, there many refineries a lot closer and pipelines to them
would not cross over and potentially endanger critical water areas. Romney, first day in office repeal death tax. 40 million dollar instant
windfall for the Mittster, cha-ching.Romney and Obama are too close
on too many issues. But if that's our only choices, I'd reluctantly
take Romney. I'll be voting for a 3rd party candidate.
I think the crowd at West Chester was near 30,000. It was an exciting evening
in SW Ohio!

If Obama wins, I hope furry,ldslib etc are on these boards in another year or
two explaining what their second term president is doing now and why he still
can't work with congress or come up with an economic plan that
works...after 5,6,7 years.Who will they blame it all on then? I'm sure they are already preparing the list of excuses.God help
@sorry charlie,How about the people in Staten Island complaining to Chuck
Schumer that they are being ignored and are going to die?
athought:I don't know, being a bishop or a stake president
sounds an awful like "community organizing" to me.
I love all of the liberals complaining about not knowing what Romney's plan
is. Please tell me what Obama's plan is for the next 4 years? He
hasn't given any specifics! He seems to just be waiting until after
election to give those! Huh, sounds like the same complaints given about Romney.
The only difference is that Obama can't run on the record he has made for
himself the last four years. Face it, four years ago, liberals voted in a
novelty with no plan and no experience and, well, we got what we asked for. Now
liberals are wanting to do it again, with even less promise than the first time.
Is it the pride of not being able to say you were wrong? Or what? I don't
I honestly don't feel Mitt's economic plans go beyond bringing back
the GWB people, then calling Wall Street for further instructions. If they DO go
further, he hasn't told us. Maybe it's a "secret plan" like
Nixon's for Vietnam.
@uteCharlie is watch and listening to the truth not faux news. You clearly
have never lived in NY or you would not so underestimate the people of this city
or state to rally. We don;t spend our time whining we spend our time doing which
is why we liberal new yorkers favor Obama over the wait and see republicans.
charlie,what planet are you living on. i lived there and spent hours on
the phone talking to friends there that are furious. you might want to read and
listen to something besides msnbc
@ worf: You're right - the people affected by Sandy are finding out the
benefits of the current administration. And I don't think many of them
have many complaints - not when it comes to the important stuff anyway.
People with low cognitive abilities can't understand the plans laid out by
Romney.One is to lower corporate taxes from 35% to 20% to bring
businesses back to America.Another is to increase drilling permits,
and deal with the Canadian oil pipeline.Loosen regulations is
To athought 1:20 p.m. Nov. 2, 2012Isn't a community organizer
basically on the same level as a wedding planner?------------------Whatever level a community organizer is on is a
lot higher than a vulture capitalist.See -- I can play the game too.
The people of New York, and New Jersey are finding the benefits of liberal
leadership they voted in.
ute alumniTengoku, UTbarry groupies:romney has extensive
plans. =========== Oh really -- such as? what? Name
one.Just elect Mitt first, and THEN he'll tell you what they are....
Finally, Romney comes out with the scare tactics. Couldn't see that
coming. However, we all know that scare tactics work, as "we" voted in
Bush twice, so this can only help Romney!
Isn't a community organizer basically on the same level as a wedding
barry groupies:romney has extensive plans. unfortunately, a person needs
to read them. barry has NO plan and the last four ears prove it. the country
can't take another 4 years of the community organizer.
Go Romney! Clearly the best choice. Hope Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania,
Florida, and Virginia are smart enough to know it and not drive this country
further away from what made it great! We already know California is beyond
help. I am surprised seeing their economic state that they don't realize
that government cannot always be the answer.
Would not expect him to say anything different. Definetly would not expect him
to provide details to his economic plan as revealing those may put Obama back in
the White House for another 4 years. Even my grade school children were smart
enough to do the math on his proposals and see they don't add up without
providing more details. He's losing the support of many of people that
could provide him the win if he would just come clean on the details. A lot of
people sitting on the fence won't go his way without them. Come on Mitt
just 5 more days to seal the deal!
Romney said the choice voters face Tuesday boils down to one simple question.
"Do you want more of the same or do you want real change?" =========== ...and he should know -Quoted from the man who
changes himself daily!
Can't take another four years
Romney says he will put people back to work, at the same time profiting from
people losing their jobs while those jobs are sent to China (google
"Sensata"). What a hypocrite!
One of the most inspirational, uplifting and encouraging speeches I have ever
