Romney will carry OH.

The MSM is not reporting this because they live in a bubble along with the pollsters.

Every one expects this to be 2008!

West Chester says different.

Yeah, but he's LOSING Ohio...and every other state...and it's all trending away from Romney...and the House is going Democrat....

30,000 people don't turn out at a rally the weekend before an election for someone who is going to lose. Period.

I heard him say that last night and thought it needs to be a commercial. Shows the difference between a gentleman and a thug man-child.

Where are the Obama Ohio crowds?

There aren't any?

And the MSM is still claiming that Ohio belongs to Barry?

I was there! The crowd was jazzed up and the place was as clean as a whistle when it was over. I took my son and we briefly chatted with Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum.

I met some folks up from Texas who were canvassing in Ohio for Romney. They showed me phone apps where they were signed up with the Obama campaign as canvassers. They reported in to the Obama campaign every where they were canvassing for Romney and said they were canvassing in those neighborhoods for Obama. It’s BRILLIANT. They covered valuable real estate for Romney and left the field clear because the Obama campaign thinks they were covering the neighborhood for them. They even reported in from the rally that they were canvassing West Chester where the rally was held.

The Manchester event on Monday *starts* at 9PM so it’s sure to be the last event of the campaign.I think Mitt lists his state of residence as New Hampshire so maybe he’ll spend the day there on Tuesday after voting...perhaps renting a hotel ballroom in Manchester (the state’s largest city).

Here’s the revenge ad. It’s great.

Watch the woman standing right of Romney. Her mouth opens in shock when she hears what Obama said. I had the same reaction when I first heard it. Couldn’t believe a President would stoop this low.

Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Colorado dominate the last three days. No Wisconsin. There is a lot of strategy in that schedule, but I’m not sure what it means. Is Virginia, Florida and Colorado that close? Or, is this making sure he closes the states he knows he has the lead in? I suppose we’ll know soon enough.

I’m pretty sure Ryan will be in Wisc. If the Native Son can’t get it done, then it can’t be done.

But at war a “gentleman” must hit hard and it is a WAR with no fair play.
And a “gentleman” must be a smart wise man understanding what’s going on....

For instance after the Sandy- Obama- MSM show , let’s see what has the One really done else than speaking

I was at the rally NYer. It was huge. I made it through security after many speakers have already spoke. And I arrived two hours early. The crowd was huge - really, really huge!

The list of speakers was extremely impressive. There was definitely over a dozen US Senators and Governors, along with other GOP stars. It was incredible.

Republicans have been popping up to our campaign office in Cincinnati. I got to see Senator Portman (of Ohio) up close and probably could have shook his hand if I wanted. I missed John King of CNN because I was out knocking on doors but I returned home for the night and John King gave a real positive report, saying the enthusiasm there was “off the charts.” He is a very decent reporter for CNN, as far as I can tell.

Later I got to shake the hand of Governor Scott Walker (of Wisconsin) twice, when he stopped by.

But here is my concern. I traveled 300 miles to come here to Ohio. I am giving 100%. I am a social conservative. Did I hear Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan speak even a single sentence about the right to life at the rally yesterday? No. Did I hear a word about the protection of marriage? No.

But I heard Romney made a television commercial for northern Virginia about abortion. The commercial explains how he is in favor or abortion in some instances. So he speaks nothing about the right to life, but can speak about how he favors abortions in some instances!

Furthermore, Claire McCaskill has cut an ad using Mitt Romney to attack Todd Akin! It was sadly be very effective I feel. Obama attacked Akin, but few notice because it is a Democrat attacking a Republican. But when a Republican attacks a Republican, independent voters notice.

Anyway, NYer, I am just upset and venting. I feel used. I went to Ohio in 2008 for John McCain and I I did not feel real comfortable then because McCain is no conservative, but I feel much worse this time.

I will probably go back to volunteer in a bit, but I am thinking of shifting to volunteering in Richard Murdoch’s Senate race in Indiana since it is only a short drive for me in southwest Ohio.

Dirty tricks are still dirty tricks no matter who does them. We should expect better and not stoop to the level of the democrats. Ironic that this comment would appear in a discussion comparing Obama’s thuggish comments with Romney’s love of America comments. My belief is that Romney wouldn’t approve.

Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and New Hampshire: These four states are in the Eastern time zone, and thus could be called earlier than states farther to the west. If three of these four are called for the same candidate before 10:00 p.m, or even midnight, that candidate will win the election. (Pennsylvania and Michigan are in the East also, but there is less of a chance of those states going to Romney.)

Florida and Virginia are "must-haves" for Romney, and if either one does not go for him, that would be telling. That would mean Romney will lose.

Once again, it could all come down to Ohio. Whoever wins Ohio, will win the election.

Romney exudes sincerity and patriotism, focus MUST be on ECONOMY and the ENEMY within the oval office right now, all else takes back seat... but its still there with Romney and you can bank on it.
