Nice to see Primary opponents showing up to say OBAMA’S GOT TO GO!

Wish I could be there! I’m in (purple?) Minnesota.

Rumors pre-Sandy were that Romney or Ryan would make an appearance here. I think the storm and schedule changes took that out of the picture.

The big MO is on R&R’s side. Hope you have a fantastic and ‘hugh’ event! I look forward to pictures./jealous :)

Despite you, it will be an overflow crowd and a lot of peanuts and crackerjack will be sold.

I am partial to peanut brittle myself.

What sort of capacity does this venue hold?

Obama was only able to assemble 3000 persons today in Green Bay and Las Vegas

Wish Patricia Heaton would be there. She has been at other Romney rallies. Saw “The Talk” this afternoon and Jane Kazmarek (spelling?) said they are “on opposite sides of the political fence” but that “Patty was the most loyal friend” and had nothing but kind words for her. Every mom I know loves “Everybody Loves Raymond” re-runs and can totally relate to “Deborah” (Patricia Heaton.)

Also wish he would come to Florida panhandle!

Like or dislike Sarah, she would be the center of attention and that’s not what Romney needs right now.

I hope you make it. This is a life changing election. Your presence is needed. Every bit makes a difference. When do you think another presidential event like this will be held 2 hours from you? I hope I convinced you. I certainly would attend except I am in Seattle.

***Get off work early!***

Remember this is obama’s America...not many people left who have work to get off early from.

We will be seeing Romney tomorrow morning in West Allis, WI (West suburbs of Milwaukee) but we don’t have a lineup like you have in Ohio! I’m jealous!

But I HONESTLY hope and pray Ohio delivers Romney a victory Tuesday night so it doesn’t come down to Wisconsin. That is too much pressure! We had enough with the Scott Walker recall we fought through.

"I heard tonight that obama was at a rallie today in Milwaulke and ONLY 2600 showed up."

After you deduct the 1,000 staffers and friends who got free rides on AF1, then subtract the 800 media sycophants and finally deduct the union and homeless who were bussed in, the actual supporters numbered only a few dozen!

Did your mamma never teach your the the little proverbs and sayings like :”Don't cut off your nose to spite your face”?

yeah- you stay home and contemplate your navel and purity. Maybe should throw in a prayer tho’ that you don't have to learn the difference between living and mere survival.

If the present little dictator gets back in, you'll find out.

You may want only hardcore conservatives, but in the real world at this time they cannot be elected nationally . Be happy they are supporting an anti-abortion pro-business candidate.

We are on our way now to Cincinnati... Didn't know until now that this event required tickets.

We are actually from CT, but have worked hard for many GOP candidates for many years. Drove way out of our way in the hopes of attending a rally like this. Hope we can get in somehow...

My daughter and I drove two hours down to the West Allis, WI Romney rally and got there a little before 9 a.m. The rally was to start at 9:30 a.m. Unfortunately, the venue was FULL and people were being turned away from the State Fair Park. We went in anyway, and noticed people walking to the other end of the fairgrounds. We found out they never expected anywhere near the crowds on a Friday morning, so they set up an outside amphitheatre where we could listen to the speakers. It was extremely cold outside but everyone stood out there and cheered and chanted “Four more days!”. Young and old alike were so fired up. The pundits are saying this was Romney’s best speech ever; and if he had given this speech in Florida, it would be a wrap up.

Tomorrow morning, Ann Coulter will be here in Sheboygan, WI with the Fire Obama Tour. I hope Ohio is as fired up tonight in West Chester and also has more people than the venue will hold! Go, Ohio!!!!!

smoothsailing: THANK YOU for this thread and especially for that ticket-order link at the top of this thread! Hubby and I are from CT, but we've been on a long, crazy trip from CT to Florida, then from FL to Ohio. We are currently in Kentucky... almost on the Ohio line!

I wouldn't have known about the tickets for this event if not for this thread. Heading to West Chester, Ohio - tickets in hand - now to check out the parking situation... We're prepared to walk miles to this rally if we have to.

Four more days!! Thank you again, smooth sailing...
