Skip to comments.Romney in Ohio: ‘My heart aches’ for struggling Americans
Posted on 09/26/2012 10:55:32 AM PDT by Lazamataz
"I've been across this country, and my heart aches for the people I've seen," Romney told a crowd of several hundred people here. "There are so many in our country that are hurting right now. I want to help them....I care about the people in America," he said. "And the difference between me and President Obama is I know what to do, and I will do what it takes to get this economy going."

Never saw it so neatly distilled. Thank you.
Romney’s heart should ache not only for struggling Americans but mostly for future Americans.
A lot better than McCain, who was there ONLY to toss the election to Obama.
The comments remind me why I spend very little time on Yahoo these days.
It’s like kook central over there.
Why don’t they have Rasmussen or Gallup in there?
I can’t wait till the first Debate! I hope Romney is able to demolish Obama.
The victims of Obama span all age groups, races & creeds.
How does one determine an unskewed poll?
Someone in Yahoo is getting fired for this, but.... it is out there now!
Romney Holds Manufacturing Roundtable in Ohio
Obama will play "me too" but everybody already knows what a cold fish he is.
Romney is playing chess.
Look at the sampling. If party identification is 10 points higher for Democrats, it's skewed.
The website explains it in detail, and also shows how they adjust it. They even provide an Excel worksheet for you to do it yourself.
Thank you for the positive chart!
The character showed up in Mitt’s tax return and in the testimonials at the convention. Obama, that commie, Muslim, U.S.-hater, cannot come close to Mitt’s character,...
the only way Romney will demolish Obama in the debates, is to completely counter zeros monopolizing the conversation by doing the same himself. O won’t follow the rules and he will filibuster... Romney has to play that way if Zero starts that crap.. He can’t be mister nice guy..
Come next week, he’ll be crying(as Hillary did).
Hell, with the stupid voters of our country, it would probably work!
Romney should come out from behind the podium and get in Obama’s facer.
Romney should come out from behind the podium and get in Obama’s face.
However, he's going to pull it out for the public to see...the timing looks like it may be synched for the debates.
The R/R team is on top of things.
Boehner and H.Clinton both show that crying is not a winner to the Murrican Pipple.
The only numbers that count at this point are the swing states. It appears your graphs were overall numbers. Polls have Romney down 8 to 10 points in Ohio. Does your source have Ohio numbers?
is this the one that Mike Rowe (”Dirty Jobs” guy)is special guest at?
Don't keep 'how' a secret any longer, Mitt. Show us the arithmetic. Times a'wastin. The longer you take the more voter think you're bluffing.
He can get in Obama’s face rhetorically and frankly, he must or he will lose.
After every grandiose Obama promise in the debates, Romney needs to look him, and the American people, dead in the eye and ask, “Who the Hell do you think was president over the last 4 years?”
Keep repeating 23 million Americans unemployed. And if you are fortunate to have a job, you should be very afraid of it disappearing in 2013 if Obama is re-elected, because his policies are destroying this nation.
Thanks for posting this..
I heard on the Communist News Network about 45 minutes ago that Obama is up by 10 in OH over Romney. I was wondering where they got that 10 point figure from...;)
Let's see how that arithmetic would turn out - 1 million under Obama and 22 million under Bush.
The speech sounds like his “severe Conservative” speech when trying to convince us he was a conservative. Now, he’s trying to convince the voters that he cares about the 47% he said he couldn’t do anything about so he says his heart hurts for people and says that in different words over and over trying to convince the voters. I didn’t buy his “severe conservative” speech either, as he never was in his history.
The first section is to enter the results from a media poll, including % of democrats, % of Republicans, % of Independents, enter % Obama, % Romney, % Undecided, % Others for each of these groups ( i.e. demorats, Republicans, Independents)
The second section is to t adjust the % democrats, % Republicans, % of Independents to match a more realistic elections turnout for each group. The worst case scenario would be democrats + 3% over Republicans but the most probable scenario is % republicans = % democrats on elections day. Make sure that when you do the adjustments for each of these group that they add to 100%.
The third section is the assignment of the % of undecided to each Romney and Obama. So you need to enter the % of undecided for Romney and those for Obama. Historically the undecided go 2:1 for the challenger
I really wanted to know what the weighting was. But I believe that might be flawed, I’ll bet a lot of D’s will vote for Romney..
What I'm most interested in, about this story, is that THIS is QUALITY campaigning...... and that Yahoo must have a closet Republican over there to get this headline featured.
I also believe many Democrats will throw Obama under the bus.
“I have this “Poll adjustment Calculator” that you can download from the link below.”
This is a poor attempt at strategerizing. Romney cannot out-emotionalize Obama. Trying to beat the Democrats at their own game is unwise, especially for someone as lacking in apparent sincerity as Romney.
What he needs to do is explain what Republican ideology and ideas are and why they're better than the Democrats'. He needs to get into the kind of lengthy explanations Clinton did at the DNC. I haven't heard the Romney campaign talk AT ALL about the differences between Republicans and Democrats. How in the heck is he going to help Congress members get elected if he doesn't make an argument for the party as a whole? This constant "I'll do the job better than Obama" drumbeat is falling on deaf ears and even if it succeeded, it does nothing to help Republican Congress members.
Looks like he may be getting his mojo here.
This is EXCELLENT. Also agree with NRO today that his line of attack on Obama saying he is leading us to bigger government and that is not the right way is better than simply blaming him for the economy.
The former really sets the stage for a decision on the role of government and how best to help the economy while returning to American values. The latter sets the stage for some to still be sympathetic to Obama that “at least he tried” and “hey it was Bush’s fault.”
Even polls that are tied show many blame Bush more for the economy, so I think the new discussion today.....which I hope he keeps through the rest of the campaign.....on how we best govern as America is the best approach because it exposes Obama’s ideology and how he has hampered progress.
Romney could slam him on the oil pipeline, not approving refineries etc.
Your post is excellent. “I’ll do it better than Obama” just doesn’t mean anything if one doesn’t know what it is Romney will do to be better than Hussein.
He started today talking about big government Obama at least.
Please do not get discouraged... Obama and his media are now left with the strategy of demoralizing us via very biased poll that have no connection to the reality of the electorate in order to suppress our vote by telling us all is lost... It is far, far, far, from over...
Let us stick together, we are more energized to defeat Obama than the other side is energized to support him, so let us all show up on November 6 2012 to make this a reality...
This is the Reagan margin of victory I have been predicting.
This makes sense.
I don’t care what they say, you can’t do as miserable a job of leading this nation as Obama has done, and get re-elected.
Ask Mr. Peanut from Georgia.
Man the comments on this story are absolutely incredible ...and as dumb as rocks! So scary to think that people this dumb and uninformed will vote. God help us.! There are probably about 90% anti Romney remarks.
Right. Think muhammad ali. Rope a dope. Obama’s objective is to talk and talk, not answer any questions and not make any mistakes. Romney’s objective as the challenger is to knock out obama. Unfortunately romney does not have a good track record of dramatic knockouts in debates. It will be a bore fest with no one wanting to make a mistake. The media will gang up on romney hoping for a gaffe.
The only way romney wins is to carpet bomb obama, throw obama off his game (unlikely) and make press exposing obama as the terrorist loving socialist scumbag that he is. But that will never happen. The media will call it for obama no matter what
