This Is What 2012 Looks Like — Lines Around The Block At Romney-Ryan Rally In NC

Let this be a lesson for The Eeyores Among Us

From reader Tim who is at the Romney-Ryan appearance in High Point, North Carolina:

"Going into the doors. Holy moly I can’t believe the people. One picture is the front of the line, one picture kinda the back, EXCEPT my camera can’t capture two and a half blocks of people. Many are actually women (the shock)."

Tim just emailed again:

"I have never been to a rally, but the picture in my head did not include a line to get off the exit, a half mile walk to the line and then a multiple block line. Consider me heartened."... PHOTOS at Link

Sorry about that

I hope this enthusiasm for the R&R team continues through election day. I have saved a few firecrackers from 4th of July and I hope to annoy my many liberal neighbors (I am in Seattle area..whaddaya expect) on evening of Nov 6th.

Concession speech by the radical socialist from Chicago...priceless!

This makes the number of union thugs who rallied at the capitol during the attempted recall of Scott Walker look negligible. Damn impressive and oh how I wish I could’ve been there!!! People are desperate for a president who LOVES THE IDEA AND IDEALS OF AMERICA! I love the way Ryan keeps repeating ‘comeback’ and ‘back on track’. That really STICKS!

We need reporting like this (FNC should do a report on it). You know the "news" media aren't going to be saying or showing anything about long lines or big crowds at R&R stops.

A delightful thought to contemplate.

But, if he loses, I'd bet money there won't be a concession speech forthcoming.

If it's close, he'll pull an Algore.

If it's a landslide, he won't appear.

It does make one wonder what DHS is planning to do with that 700 lbs of RDX and half a ton of ammonium nitrate they just bought.

All he needs is a riot or a war and a pen. Or simply a pen and say that for the good of the country he cannot allow the United States to fall back into the hands of those who will bring back the failed policies of the past which resulted in the problems we face even still today.

The people will accept it. It will sound good and sophisticated so it must be true. After all, that's all they went by when they voted for the guy the first time.

Imagine where we would have been as a nation today (even with Obama as pResident)if Paul Ryan was speaker and not John Boehner.

“Imagine where we would have been as a nation today (even with Obama as pResident)if Paul Ryan was speaker and not John Boehner.”

For the love of this country - can we Puleeeze dump boo hoo Boehner AND the no chin, no guts McConnell? Every day, we KNOW they both give in first, then figure a way to tell us why they “had to compromise”. Enough of this tripe. Rip the Dems apart.

GWG, what you said really resonated with me. I have all sorts of problems with Obama, but my biggest has always been I don't believe he loves America. In '08, when he was running for President, and in the nearly four years now that he's held the office, I can honestly say I've never heard him say he loves this country. Every once in a while he'll say something good about it, but then he always couches it with a "but...".

Whether it's an apology tour around the world, talk of how government really made us great, or his most damning statement, "You didn't build that", Obama has consistently shown his disdain for the United States of America.

see, most of us Americans are proud, and realized we’re blessed to live in the land of plenty. Obama has always seemed bitter, jealous, if you will, of the USA’s success, especially with the British. I can’t wait until the grownups are back “in charge” of the white house.

I was impressed by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan today. They were in great spirit and form. Let's keep it simple. We vote for Romney and Ryan, thus, kicking Obama out of the White House. Anyone telling us not voting for Romney and giving the election to Obama is good for America, may be an Obama dupe or troll.

Don’t believe? Anyone who has read Dreams from my Father, which I did early in 08 when Hillary was still slightly ahead in the polls, KNOWS Obama doesn’t love America.

Republican turnout. The Base. That is what caused 2010 results. Not Independents. Get your base fired up, it is the intensity, the excitement factor that wins elections. If Republicans are more excited about voting, are more likely to vote than Obama/Biden voters, Romney/Ryan win.

Romney needs to understand, though, that the enthusiasm is NOT for his presidency, but for saving America from the Marxists intent on destroying it.

Wow. Look at all the women and seniors on line. Sure they’re not all waiting for their free birth control pills? LOL. I’m feeling very optimistic. I think obama’s support has been narrowed down to the fringe element of his party. No way he picks up mainstream America this time around.

Over the weekend I took a poll in NC. I drove on I 77 from the Virginia line to Durham on I 40. I drove around a good bit in Durham and visited several large parking lots. I traveled in excess of 400 miles in two days.

I saw a total of two, that is 2, Obama2012 bumper stickers. Both were on the vehicles of Black women.

I saw no, that is 0, Romney bumper stickers.

To me this means that Obama does not have the burning gut support as he did previously.
