Newspaper of Ohio Supports Mitt Romney

Image:http://www.nola.com

On Sunday, the Cincinnati Enquirer gave its endorsement to Mitt Romney saying that the former business executive possessed the experience to lead the U.S. economy into recovery and solve the political dysfunction in Washington D.C. One of Ohio’s leading newspapers also offered a rebuke of President Barack Obama’s stewardship of the economy during his tenure in the White House.

On Monday, Rasmussen announced that Romney has finally pulled ahead of Obama 50% to 48% in Ohio, a state that carries 18 electoral votes. In its endorsement, the Cincinnati Enquirer also conveyed Romney’s success as governor of Massachusetts.

The bottom line: He erased the deficit in Massachusetts (which was required by state law) and left office with a $600 million surplus. He replenished the state’s reserve fund two years into his term, pushing it to $2 billion by the time he left office in 2007.

The newspaper discussed Obama’s failure to move the U.S. economy in the right direction despite four years in office, two of which involved a U.S. congress controlled by Democrats.

Four years later, though, we’re still at risk of backpedaling into another recession, the housing market is still suffering and we have a sense of drift, not of common purpose.

The president has touted lower unemployment rates as one argument for re-election. However,Red State reports that Ohio’s recent decrease in unemployment is due to a shrinking labor force and not due to a recovering local economy.

The unemployment rate reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) dropped from 10.6 percent in July 2009 to 7.2 percent in August 2012, but the change resulted from a shrinking labor force as opposed to strong job growth.

On Sunday, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos added his thoughts to the mix (as quoted in Playbook): “Can Obama’s swing state firewall stand up to Romney’s momentum? … [Ohio poll out today] shows Governor Romney coming on very strong in that state that matters so much. It looks like a real threat to [Obama’s] firewall.”

Mitt Romney Predicted He Will Win this Election

Image: http://www.coloradodaily.com

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Mitt Romney predicted a win for himself on Election Day 12 days away. His campaign plane just landed yards away from a hangar full of supporters in the Hawkeye State .

“The Obama campaign is slipping because it can’t find an agenda to help the American families, but our campaign is growing into a movement across this country that says we’re going to get America back, we’re going to get America strong, we’re going to provide for our families,” Romney said. “And I’m optimistic. I’m optimistic not just about winning. We are going to win by the way. And we’re going to do that.”
Romney and Obama are neck-and-neck in the recent polls. Among likely voters, 49 to 48 percent Romney eked out and a slight edge nationally in the latest ABC News/Washington Poll.
“I’m not just optimistic about winning, said Romney. “I’m more optimistic about the future of America .”
Romney prediction of his ticket to win was the second time today, with his first prediction was earlier in the day in Reno , Nev.
“He doesn’t have a plan to get jobs for Americans,” Romney said of President Obama in Reno during a rally. “I do, and that’s why I’m gonna win.”

Mitt Romney Intensive Campaign Made him the Voters’ choice

The final days of the campaign for the president in the U.S. is to about to close. The American people will decide on November 6, who will seat as U.S. president. It might retain Obama or a new president will be at the White House.

Both candidates are doing their final stage in the campaign to become a U.S. president. Each one does their task in winning the voters whom they rely that can help them seat as president. The present polls show that a close fight between the two candidates thus, it is hard to determine who will be the next U.S. president.
But Mitt Romney campaign has done a great impact on him. Every time he visits a state made some voters change their mind that instead of Obama, they shifted to Romney. However, since Obama is ahead of Romney in the beginning of the campaign, still obama is on the top. But as the days go by, the issue of U.S. economy, creating million of jobs, and foreign policy that Obama has failed to do in his term, prefer the voters to change the president.
The experience of Romney as a successful businessman is the right president for the recovery of the worse economy of the U.S. today. The credential of Romney as a businessman far outweighs that of Obama as far as who better the American economy. The reason behind those voters chooses Romney because they prefer to have businessman in the White House than a lawyer.
The two debates of president Obama and Romney add factors also in the preference of the voters to choose who can seat in the white house. Obama did not perform well during the debate by not giving clear answer to the economic crisis of the Americans. Four years that Obama has not fulfilled his promise to recover the US economy, thus people are in doubt of his leadership.

Romney has A Clear Leg Up in Florida

Image: http://www.bostonglobe.com

On an electoral map that still poses challenges for Mitt Romney, one heartening trend for the Republican nominee can be found in Florida, whose 29 electoral votes constitute the largest prize among the battleground states.

In recent weeks, the Sunshine State has moved clearly in Romney’s direction.

After President Obama led in every Florida poll released in the second half of September, Romney has been ahead in nine of the last 10 surveys conducted, leading his opponent by 1.8 percent in the latest RCP Average of polls here.

Romney’s momentum is particularly significant for one reason: Florida is a must-win state for him. If he were to fall short, he would have to sweep the remaining eight battlegrounds in order to win the presidency — a scenario that not even his rosiest spinmeister would deem credible.

Anitere Flores, a Republican who serves in the state Senate, said signs of Romney’s momentum could be seen the last couple of weeks just by driving around her South Florida district.

“I always say as a politician that yard signs don’t vote. We know that. But yard signs give people a sense of ownership of the campaign,” Flores said. “Four weeks ago, there were no yard signs for either candidate anywhere in our universe. Now, everywhere you turn, it’s mostly for Romney and people have them everywhere.”

Flores added quickly that she holds no illusions of an easy victory for Romney in her state.

She is not alone in that assessment.

While both campaigns agree privately that Romney has opened up a small lead here, neither one believes that advantage is more than a couple of points.

And there is room for the dynamic to shift once again down the homestretch, as persuadable voters who live along Central Florida’s I-4 corridor — long the crown jewel of presidential swing regions — make their final decisions.

Asked about the Romney team’s view that they now have a clear leg up in Florida, which might allow them to focus resources elsewhere, Bob Graham — the state’s former governor, senator, and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate — sounded a defiant note.

“That’s not a very good commentary on the judgment of Gov. Romney and the people who surround him,” Graham said. “I believe Florida continues to be very much in contest.”

Romney’s Staff and Members of the News Media have a Flag Football Beach Face-off

Image: http://www.gawker.com

DELRAY BEACH , FLA. – Romney own political version of Monday Night Football will be participated by him when he faces off against President Obama in their final debate of the campaign cycle. He took a break from debate preparation on Sunday morning to make a stop at a gridiron of a different sort – where members of Mr. Romney’s staff will have a flag football beach face-off with the members of the news media.

Mr. Romney walked down to the beach wearing black shorts and black Adidas T-shirt and gray sneakers after spending the morning at church, and kicked off the game with a coin toss.
“Let’s see, look at the captain, Gails a captain, is that right?” Mr. Romney said, referring to the campaign’s director, Gail Gitcho. “Got a bracelet for you.”
A white rubber bracelet Romney handed to Ms. Gitcho that read, “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, America Can’t Lose,” an apparent twist on the “Friday Night Lights” motto,  which begun quoting recently on the campaign trail by Mr. Romney.
He asked the assembled reporters, “Who’s the ringer over here? Who is it, who is it?” Romney also asked to his campaign staff, clad in Red T-shirts, “Where’s Chris Christie when we need him? He’s our line.”
Mr. Romney added, “Senator, ready to go?” Pointing to Senator Rob Portman of Ohio , who act as Mr. Obama in debate practice sessions.
Team Romney included Austin Barbour, a deputy to a senior member of the strategy team, in addition to Mr. Portman and Ms. Gitcho.
Occasionally candidates and staff members interact with reporters on a social level. A barbecue for the media hosted by Senator John McCain of Arizona at his Sedona, Ariz, house four years ago, and then in 2008 Senator Obama once played Taboo on his charter with reporters. Four years ago, at least one member of Mr. Obama’s traveling press corps participated sometimes in his pick up basketball games.

Romney is Getting More Approval Among Latino Voters in Florida

Since Labor Day, the Romney campaign criticizing Obama through a barrage of Spanish-language radio and television.

Actually the Romney campaign is much shrewder than just Spanish advertising. And this has uncovered the strategy in Florida .
By as many as 50 points nationwide where the Latinos Obama is leading with Romney, but nothing to worry because these numbers are in some ways beside the point.. The big picture of the Latino vote is represented by these numbers.
States such as Arizona and Texas will go for Romney, yet at the end of the day, it is largely irrelevant how well Obama does with Latinos in solidly red states. With Latinos in California or New York , Obama assure of the support of those states and it’s just as meaningless how much headway Romney makes with Latinos.
The three large Latino populations we should focus on of how Obama and Romney compare in the toss-up states: Nevada , Colorado , and Florida where Latinos make up 26.5%, 20.7%, and 22.5% populations respectively.
Obama holds wide leads in Nevada and Colorado among Latino voters as polls show. But it is different in Florida .
In a poll by the Miami Herald and Florida International University (PDF}, there are only 7 points lead by Obama over Romney with 51% to 44%. But Romney is ahead by two points in a recent Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald poll with 46% to 44%. Romney gaining support to the recent polls compared with older ones.
The Latino votes to the two candidates for president in Florida shows that voters are undecided. It is due to the fact that the Latino population in Florida is predominantly made up of Cuban Americans, who tend to be conservative and for Republican.
The varieties of Latinos make the political picture more complicated of the sizable numbers of Puerto Ricans, Colombians, and Brazilians. And there is more Latino population in Florida than Cuban Americans. And besides, generation gap could be the factor to consider. Younger Cuban-Americans have demonstrated more of willingness than their parents’ generation to vote Democratic.

Obama and Romney Tied at 47% on the Latest poll

October 21, 2012 – The recent poll results is too close between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

Among the likely voters a little more than two weeks before Election Day, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released today shows the candidates tied at 47%.
Obama had a 3-point lead 49%-46% before the first presidential debate basing on the last poll survey conducted by NBC/WSJ poll.
Among the registered voters, Obama leads Romney by 5 points as what the latest surveys says, although Obama and Romney tied among likely voters. This result shows that those numbers reflect the Democratic concern which reveals that their voters aren’t enthusiastic as the Republican voters who showed up at the polls.
Other polls conducted show a tight race, well within the margin of errors. Obama and Romney tied also at 47% as the averages of all surveys that includes the result of The Real Clear Politics website.
A state-by-state battle for the Electoral College, a down to wire Real Clear Politics forecasts which will decide who wins the presidency.
On Monday night in Boca Raton , Fla , the two candidates have their third and final debate – this one devoted to foreign affairs.
“Looking at some of the most important demographic groups, Romney leads among men (53 percent to 43 percent), Obama is up with women (51 percent to 43 percent) and they are essentially tied among voters in the Midwest,” the NBC News reports on its new poll.

Romney Smashed Obama in A Rally in Daytona

October 20, 2012 – DAYTONA BEACH , FLA – The incredible shrinking campaign at a rally on Friday with Obama as Romney blasted his reelection effort, in what is scheduled to be his last appearance on the campaign trail to the third and final presidential debate.

At an outdoor band shell overlooking the Atlantic Ocean , Romney and running mate Paul Ryan appear with a rally. Obama campaign has been reduced to petty attacks and word games as what Romney said.
“The Obama campaign has become the incredible shrinking campaign,” Romney said. This is a big country, with big challenges and they keep talking about smaller and smaller things. We have big ideas, bold ideas, and were going to get America working again. That’s why you’re going to elect the two of us and we’re going to get this country on track.”
Obama has failed to lay out any specifics on what he’ll accomplish if he’s elected to a second term, Romney said as he continued his charge with the president.
“Have you been watching the Obama campaign lately?” Romney said. “It’s absolutely remarkable. They have no agenda for the future. No agenda for America . No agenda for a second term,” Romney said. “It’s a good thing they won’t have a second term.”
Obama supporters could be heard in the distance chanting “Obama”, while Romney drew a big crowd. Rallies of Obama have been greeted with chants of “four more years” by protesters at other campaign events, Romney noted.
Romney repeated his pledge that his administration could create 12 million job and said, “We can endure 18 more days of the agenda of President Obama, but we cannot endure four more years and that’s why we’re going to replace him in 18 days.”
It’s crucial that Romney wins Florida and the state’s 29 electoral votes, if his prediction comes true.

2012 Presidential Debate: Key Reasons that the Second Debate Goes for Romney

Image: http://www.swampland.time.com

Romney continued his victorious string of  second 2012 presidential debate wins by scoring on the economy, gas prices, and Libya .  He showed himself to be an articulate, capable, attractive, compassionate leader with sound ideas and looked more presidential than Obama did.

Obama did no learn from his Vice President’s mistakes and came over as boorish a Biden-esque. He loses his dignity and his aura, when a president gets into a bar room brawl, a key assets for an incumbent. While his opponent Romney was polite and firm. It seemed that Obama is quarrelsome, frustrated, nasty, and cranky.
The key reasons for the win of Romney was substantive:
  1. Obama’s Rebuttal about 5 million jobs was pathetic that made Romney very clear against the case of Obama’s record.
  2. A china issue is a big issue injected by Romney and tapped into a strong public sentiment.
  3. Obama’s anti-oil, coal, and gas and that this has doubled gas prices where it made very effective case of Romney.
  4. Unlike the GOP of the past, Romney was for small businesses not big businesses where he was very effective in differentiating himself from Bush-43 and in establishing it.
  5. Over the Chinese investments, Romney rebutted the attacks on him.
  6. The tax plan of Romney was well explained and to everyone’s satisfaction.
  7. He always felt that Libya was a terror attack that Obama erred in trying to make us believe.
This affects Obama and made him scored points over the 47% statement by Romney, immigration, and by his response to the accusation that after the murder of Ambassador, he went to Vegas.
Romney got this debate and seals his momentum that will lead to a big win.

The Reason Behind why Support Romney for President

Image: http://www.sodahead.com

 An American column speaks about why he will vote Romney for president.

This column is enumerating some important points why he chooses Romney rather than Obama as president. Brandon Todd speaks for American on this that this coming Nov., he will not vote for Obama. He said that way back in 2008, Mr. Obama’s words were music to his ears. And after four years of deception and division, he then realized that he was being fooled by a slithery politician. He described Obama as simple demagogue. Out of these reasons, America can choose the vision of Obama or choose that of Governor Mitt Romney.

 

Why he is supporting for Romney?  The reason behind his support is because he believes that his credentials as a businessman far outweigh that of Obama as far as who is better in the American economy. It is better to have a businessman in the White House than a lawyer. The speech of Obama is captivating but no substance. As a lawyer, most are liars. The president he wants is truthful and he found it in Romney.

 

The speech of Romney is more on equality of opportunity which is how this country came to greatness but Obama talking a misleading rhetoric that implies equality of outcome. There are several reasons why he will vote for Romney.

 

That Romney is for limited government. The small businesses and corporation tax reduction to help stimulate job growth. Regulation reduction can give confidence back to business to rehire. And spending reduction across the board the ever growing national debt which is now $16 trillion and rising.

 

Romney also wants to decrease the power of federal government and making their own decision on respective states and not on the president. The approval of the Keystone XL pipeline which Obama opposes is given priority by Romney.

 

Well, each one has its own opinion. Now what’s yours? Just feel free to comment below.
