Posted on 11/01/2012 9:06:41 PM PDT by LittleSpotBlog
Norfolk, Virginia (CNN) In a late campaign push to change the battleground map, Mitt Romney will travel to Pennsylvania on Sunday in the hopes of capturing the traditionally Democratic-leaning state. A Romney campaign official confirmed to CNN the GOP nominee will stop in the Philadelphia area Sunday afternoon.

Everyone, especially those of us in swing states, get out and vote!!!!
I’ve spent most of my life in PA. It is forever a tease for the good guys. It’s “in play,” but will ultimately go to The Marxist. That said, I think it is smart for Romney to push here & strategically, it helps him win.
Pennsylvania is in play.
Romney is not trying to put it in play.
Pennsylvania citizens fed up with Obama put it in play. Voter id laws put it in play. Obama’s presidency put it in play.
McCain did it when he realized Ohio was lost. This time folks are really considering someone new after this mess. Cricket even Michigan is close.
This is more like in 08 when Obama pushed into NC and IN and everyone thought he was crazy. Romney is pushing for a convincing win. Not quite landslide but more convincing than either Bush win.
You guys are reassuring me. Romney has to win this election. I can’t wait to know the outcome, because this back and forth of confidence and despair (entirely on my part) is painful!
FOUR MORE DAYS!!
how does it help him win if ultimately it goes to zero?
Take out the voter fraud in Philly and maybe PA is in play. Just sayin’.
The MSM reports it, more than the MSM would report something that was NOT news, like Romney going to a Republican State.
Free Media is the name of the game right now!
That, and the “Romney Surge” meme
Additionally, If The Roman Catholic Church is really serious about the Life Issue and the thousands or millions of additional unborn children who will be murdered by 0bamacare (and the Roman Institutions that will be required to fund that) then the Dioecesis Scrantonensis needs to get priests to read a letter this coming Sunday reminding Catholics of their duty not to materially assist in, to vote for, or to endorse any candidate who supports: abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, same-sex marriage, or cloning. These issues are non-negotiable and parishioners should be further warned that they are de facto excommunicated if they vote for a candidate who supports these issues.
This message is being read out in many places across the country on the last two Sundays before the election. I have not heard if the Diocese of Scranton has been one of them. It has the potential to have a huge impact in PA if it has. It could also have some effect with Reagan Democrats in the Archdiocese of Johnstown/Altoona as well.
1) Obama should have stayed in the Sandy disaster area and look like the President. Believe me, I am glad he left, but the anger in NY and NJ is white hot.
2) People are now signing up for 2013 health care. They are seeing large increases in cost and reduced benefits. I work for a Wall Street Bank and they have already told us in 2014 we are only going to have one plan. It will be a high deductible plan. your deductible will be several thousand dollars before any coverage kicks in. I will have worse Health care then if I worked as a full time clerk at Wal-Mart. These two things are firing up the voters and guess who is going to take the brunt of it? The Democrats. They went all in with Obama and they are going down with the ship because of Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. The political three stoogies!
In 2008, McCain staff started releasing negative stuff about Palin 5-6 days before election. No leak till now from Romney camp, it means they are confident. Obama camps are in panic.
I dont think Romney would be wasting his time in PA unless he is confident that Ohio will be a certain win for him.
Romney is smart and knows what he is doing.
Yes, I think he is. Looking at the latest polling in the last two days, seems Mitt got done in by Sandy. I hope I’m wrong, but I suspect Obambi pulls it out and the country is basically done.
Its in play, but will ultimately go to The Marxist. <<
Yup...but only because of a 103% voter turnout...
Sure you do, n00b.
Take your miserable concern-trolling elsewhere.
Chunga, if I was trolling I would be starting posts to troll. I’m worried sick about this election. I have several friends that work for several Senators, all GOP. I’m worried. Just my nature, I don’t like where the polls are going the last few days. Hope like hell I’m wrong. If I am, we will both be celebrating on Tuesday night along with my wife.
Shove the negativity, n00b! We're trying to shore up enthusiasm here!
Yes, Obama got a small bump from Sandy, but the idea that Mitt has been “sunk” by it is way over the top.
While the Dems on their sites are saying it definitively has ended the election, most (if not all) of our analysts see it as just a temporary blip that will largely be forgotten by next Tuesday.
Am I concerned? Sure, but I would be concerned if we were up 20. That is just my nature.
The point is, Romney is in a good spot and had a very real chance of winning this thing Tuesday. Giving up now is quite simply not an option.
Lets bring this one home!!
Thanks...I’m with you. Hope you are right.
Who or what is Wenzel Strategies?
However, a good friend of mine just wrote this and it appeared on Breitbart, so that makes me feel better.
Are you unable to click the link, view the pdf file, view the prominently displayed website URL, copy and paste it into your address bar and check them out?
I did, and I must tell you I’ve never heard of them. What kind of track record do they have? I understand they are a conservative polling firm. That’s great, but just as we would question a liberal polling firm the same is true of a conservative one.
I want polls that are going to tell me what is going to happen, without the bias. Just my two cents.
I know you are going to retort, act insulted, try and hopelessly defend your cover here. But
.We still invite you to stick around, debate honestly, be who you are, be an adult, that this 2008 act is tiresome and does you no good, really. You will not dampen our enthusiasm or spirits, we are going to win Tuesday and no amount of snark, nastiness or taunting on your end is going to change that. Not woofing my friend, its just your reality, Romney will be the 45th President of the USA and nothing you can do about it, start accepting that.
polls without bias? hmmm..... conservative polls usually shoot for the truth
Many part of PA are booming with the Marcellus play. All so counties getting rich from it will be hard GOP. Most of PA is GOP but Pittsburgh and Philly are Dems. This will be a squeeker but I really think Obama is in for a BIG surprise.
The energy sector here is strongly GOP.
2) Zero is in CO. Huh? That was supposed to be in the bag for him.
3) You can tell by the schedules who is winning.
Maybe because the early voting shows a R advantage and he is doing extremely well in Bucks Co, the key to it all.
If you never try to change minds you will never begin to make head way in a state and you as a party have determined to paint yourself into a smaller and smaller pathway to victory.
I’m probably younger than a lot of Freepers, but I live in Bucks County (Philly swing suburb), and I have never seen this much support for a GOP candidate since 2000. There’s very little, if any, Obama yard signs or bumper stickers.
Hopefully Romney will pick up the suburbs and win this thing!
Pudner and I went to school together at Marquette University. He was a Senior when I was a freshman. Guess who was my classmate? Scott Walker of Wisconsin. And yes, I know several folks that are staffers for the Senate...if you know anything about Marquette and the Les Aspin School of Government you would know why.
Pudner is awesome and he wrote a great article that I linked. Here’s a nice youtube clip of him last year talking about our passion, Marquette basketball as well as politics. He has worked on Republican campaigns for his company for many years. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFt9icKBuKY&noredirect=1
It’s a shame you act the way you do. Rasmussen out today, he now has it tied. Are you going to call Rasmussen a “homosexual DU troll”? http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/political_commentary/commentary_by_scott_rasmussen/an_unpredictable_end_to_a_very_predictable_election
Really, some of you are incredible. I already voted for Mitt, so did my wife. I am merely talking about what the polls say and I’m labeled something. Awesome. It’s going to be razor tight, all about turnout. Praying for the best.
Best damn post I have ever read!
An anecdotal story from tonight:
I was at a ballroom dance event in Harrisburg tonight and went to dinner at the restaurant there. As luck would have it sitting across from me was a family Mom, Dad, and two young adults...perhaps their kids. I overhear the conversation. Some of the things I heard were. Mom says Tea Party Idiots, I hate Chris Christi I hate Tom Corbett (R gov of Pa). The young adult says There is only one reason that Im voting for Obama and thats because he got Bin Laden. And the father says, Pennsylvania is a lock because there will be 500,000 votes coming out of Philadelphia. I am listening to this and couldnt keep my mouth shut. So I say to the young male, Obama didnt get bin Laden the navy seals did It was like I poked a hornets nest. A storm of invective was sent my way. Husband: I dont listen to Rush Limbaugh or watch Fox news I use my brain Romney is an elitist He doesnt care about half the country,Republicans trying to suppress the vote with voter id, My disabled sister shouldnt need a voter id. Wife: Look at the video ( the 47% video) that proves he doesnt care, mockingly laughing at me hahahahaha the liberal media right hahahahaha .
My responses as calmly as i could was to ask about Benghazi ...no reply. To ask if they knew of the Alabama utility company who drove up to New Jersey to offer help with the power outages but turned back because they were not union... no reply. Asked husband where he got his news? He said many different places. He kept repeating that PA is a lock because there will be 500,000 votes coming out of Philadelphia. I asked him where he works....he works for the labor department...gee fancy that.
Meanwhile in the booth next to this family was a couple, who became my back up. They were definitely urging me on. In fact when the husband said he doesnt watch fox news....the guy said maybe you should.
Anyhow the conversation died down. They stopped paying attention to me. I tried once to get the attention of the wife but she wouldnt acknowledge me. Here comes I wish i could have said this alert. If i could have talked to her I would have said, Maam you mentioned Tea Party idiots. I have an IQ close to the mensa range. So you remember that the next time you spew your bigoted hatred (That line was well rehearsed on my drive home) When they were leaving I said trying to be friendly, Have a good rest of your evening They just ignored me.
I chatted with the couple in the next booth. They told me they were from Western Pennsylvania. And all of Western Pa is for Romney except perhaps for Pittsburgh. That they had never seen anything like it before. They also told me they have a friend from the CIA and that if he heard what this family in the next booth was saying he would have pulled a chair up to their booth and started a conversation.
Loved your story! And you’re braver than me, lol.
