Romney Targets Obama Voters
Wall Street Journal ^ | October 9, 2012 | By COLLEEN MCCAIN NELSON And PATRICK O'CONNOR

With new polls showing his campaign gaining momentum, Mitt Romney is venturing into what might be viewed as unfriendly territory, visiting counties in swing states that voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 and urging the president's supporters to switch sides.

The strategy is crucial to the Republican nominee: With the pool of undecided voters now small, Mr. Romney's best path to building a majority includes stripping Mr. Obama of some of his more tentative supporters.

"I'd like you to go out and find one person who voted for Barack Obama, or maybe two or three or four or five, and convince them to join our team," Mr. Romney told supporters in Denver recently. "I need you to go out and find people and say, 'You know what? It's not working.' "

If Romney wins the election Chris Matthews is going to give herself a hysterectomy on TV.

I haven’t watched Chrissy for a long time because I couldn’t stand his positions, however having read many posts on how he has become insane, I had to watch him last night. I was shocked at the change, He is so desperate at this point that he can’t even speak coherently. It was fun to watch him foam at the mouth and his guests couldn’t get behind him like he wanted and he was frustrated. I thought he was gonna have a heart attack. When this election is decided with Mitt win, I will get out the pop corn and turn to MSNBC. LOL

I know of two mid-late 20 somethings who are now fully stripped. They both voted for Obama, but had shown some doubts a few months ago. Wife and I have been able to talk them both in to absolutely going against Obama.

What's interesting, is that they come to US now with anti-Obama information.

This is NOT to say that they love Romney, but they are both going to vote for him, because quite frankly, they can no longer stomach an Obama presidency.

there was a time when Chris Matthews was a journalist. He was a lefty, but at least he gave the other side a chance to speak. Now he’s just a shriveled up weasel with a data cable pumping in talking points from Media Matters. The man has spittle dripping out of the sides of his mouth and only seems rational when he speaks about his dream date.
