A huge crowd turned out for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan at Hoover High School in North Canton, Ohio, Friday evening. Even wet weather and frigid temperatures couldn’t keep thousands of energetic supporters from lining up to see the GOP candidates speak in the crucial swing state.

The Oak Ridge Boys warmed up the freezing crowd and actress Patricia Heaton bundled up to introduce the candidates.

Like Ryan, the Ohio crowd was confident that Ohio is Romney/Ryan country. And hey, look, Romney supporters got the letters in the right order.

This is what momentum looks like.

    Ohio, it really is in your hands. The rest of the nation is counting on midwestern common sense to trump the failed policies of manipulative “hope and change” that has become disillusionment, unemployment and a middle class sliding into poverty. Don’t fail us Ohio. It’s going to be a cold winter and Obama will spend it consolidating his own fortunes while you guys, and the rest of us, struggle. How about we have a real leader this time?

      Saw today that Obama’s minions are taking Somalis to the polls, using Dem. interpreters, and telling them, “Vote Brown all the way down.” Beware good people of Ohio. You will need EVERY conservative vote on Election Day. Drag EVERYONE you know who will vote for Romney to the polls on the day. We are all depending on you.

      Any wonder why the DoJ sued the states wanting voter ID laws?

  • http://twitter.com/CivilRightsStef Stefanie McCarthy

    Election day cannot come soon enough. Using racial and biased slurs as a political platform is not going to change the way anyone votes. However, I read this quote, and feel it needs to be shared. This is not a campaign for Obama as I am not much of a fan of him, or what he promised he would do and simply has not these past fo
    ur years, rather a reality check on the ignorance and double-standard that still plague this country: “I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say they’re voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights and women’s rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say, ‘My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood.’ It’s like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You’re still complicit. You’re still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural bias and homophobia. You don’t get to walk away clean, because you say you ‘disagree’ with your candidate on these issues.” – Doug Wright, Pulitzer and Tony award winner. Everybody is so concerned with the economy, and let’s face it, it has always been horrible! Do WE as a nation not realize what Romney in office will do to this country? They say this country is free with equal rights for everybody, that is just not true. A vote for Romney is putting the last nail in the coffin for civil r
    ights…Do you now see that? Or, do you just not care?

    • LouAnnWatson

      who is we? you’re just a one issue gay militant leftist, 3.2% of the population and you think it’s the most important issue. no one is stepping on your rights.

    • nc

      We care, we care! We just don’t care in the same way you do. Does it never occur to you that people can disagree on this issue and not be “haters?”

    • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

      Stefanie- I am one of those independents that side with the left on social issues. I knew Obama was not going to do a damn thing about gay rights. If gays were a priority he would have brought them up in the debates. And yesterday he walked back the comments that he wants the states to take care of it JUST LIKE ROMNEY. Romney is on camera on Univision saying he believes gays should have civil union rights. And come on- stop listening to the fear mongering of the left. Roe vs. Wade will NEVER get overturned. It would be career suicide for any president. No one is going to touch it and the only reason GOP brings it up is because the liberal media berates them for a “gotcha” answer. I am pro choice but we still have Freedom Of Religion in this country.

      • http://twitter.com/MawMaw4Romney Donna

        Civil Union rights is in a different handbasket than marriage, and the redefinition of our whole way of life. In fact, a lot of people prefer a civil union because it’s far less hassle to dissolve, in the event of a split.

        • Discontentwliars

          Civil Unions should provide the same benefits and disadvantages except a few. I believe Coverage under insurance, visitation, retirement etc. No reason why it shouldn’t. I’m not convienced about the adoption experiment. We have many social issues that are an issue at this point that are affecting our young in a lot of areas.

    • NRPax

      Republicans aren’t going to take away your rights any more than they are going to take away your tampons or your dollar meals at McDonald’s.

    • Comrade Snarky

      Stephanie, I’m a libertarian who’s voting for Romney, and I simply can’t understand the reasoning of those who say Republicans will take away our rights. First of all, read up on history. It was always the DEMOCRATS who tried to take away people’s civil rights and exhibited blatant racism and sexism. Second, explain to me how you can be so concerned about women and gay rights and then side with the president who shows such strong support for Islam and Sharia law, which are THE #1 enemy of women and gays everywhere, with a track record of abhorrent practices against both groups, as well as children. Finally, explain to me how you can be so worried about having your rights taken away by Romney yet seem unconcerned by the fact that Obama has already issued 900+ executive orders that limit your rights, and is showing intent to take away your right to freedom of speech, your right to bear arms, and your right to worship whatever God you want (or don’t want).

      So yes, Stephanie, I care. I care very much. Which is why I’m voting for Mitt Romney, a man who may not be perfect, but who isn’t interested in “fundamentally transforming” this great nation the way Obama is.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      I would say the reality check on ignorance needs to start with your theory that it’s all about taxes. That’s HARDLY the main issue. So right there the argument is moot.

      So you’re willing to sacrifice EVERYTHING about the country for gay marriage. Become a slave to a fascist central planning concept that dictates your every move and redefines your freedoms. Julia is a pathetic life.

      Womens’ rights is a red herring. And you can’t make a case for taxpayer paid healthcare in America. We already know even if we agree with the concept based on some faux charity theory that the result will be God awful health care. Going down the path of visiting a same sex partner is a losing path because that can all be dealt with outside of marriage. I actually am in favor of same sex marriage but will NEVER EVER trade that (even for my gay brother) for the fundamental transformation of America.

      And guess what? He and his friends all agree. Marriage will most likely evolve with future generations if it doesn’t progress in the court. Another term of Obama is the end of this country. And the “right” to marry is no kind of trade off for the disastrous future that faces us all with Obama in office. Obama has already shown his love of limiting our rights and his endless determination to act on it. We won’t even get INTO the Islamification project that’s also a threat and the corruption that central planning feeds on.

      By the way, a case could be made that without this behemoth progressive government you love, LGBT people probably COULD get married because in a perfect Republic, the government has nothing to do with what is essentially a religious ceremony.

      Anyway, the progressives who claim Republicans are all about taxes and limiting “rights” haven’t been listening and are sorely lacking in basic civics and American History. Quite understandable since it’s all part of the plan. The worst problem we as a nation face is the progressive takeover of government education, resulting in brainwashed and intellectually limited graduates who willfully live their lives based on watching 140 character sound bites and never ever once do any type of research on their own of the “facts” they think they are being told. Listen to Mark Levin for a month and see what you think thereafter. .

      By the way, after bailing on LGBT in his first term, leaving marriage up to the states, Obama has FORMALLY bailed on it for his second term. Do your research.

      Now what? Do you want to live under central planning withOUT your number one issue: marriage equality?

  • Adela Wagner

    Let’s
    put into perspective just some of the effects of the Obama presidency…

    1. Wasted almost a trillion of our
    dollars and unemployment is above 8 percent for 3.7 years.
    2. Leaked classified Intel and put
    American military in greater danger.
    3. Rammed a health care law through
    that 60 percent of Americans dislike.
    4. Reversed don’t ask don’t tell and
    supports the redefining of traditional marriage.
    5. Wasted billions on failed green
    companies that have since gone bankrupt.
    6. Actively works to stop off shore
    drilling yet gives billions of our money to Brazil for off shore drilling
    7. Is actively destroying the coal
    industry.
    8. Gives the Russians everything they
    wanted in a treaty and America gets nothing.
    9. Puts Americans on a political hit
    list on his website in an effort to destroy them.
    10. Adds caveats about himself to the
    historic president’s bios on the White House website.
    11. Took 716 billion from Medicare to
    fund ObamaCare.
    12. Broke the law and announced amnesty
    for illegals.
    13. Operated fast and furious and put
    hundreds of assault rifles in Mexican cartel hands.
    14. Benghazi-Gate: New Evidence White House
    Lied About Libya Terror Attack
    15. Despite Crises Abroad, Obama opted out to
    go on the View instead Of Meeting with Foreign Leaders at the U.N.
    I could go on and on but I am getting too depressed.
    Just remember to be that likely voter on November 6th 2012. Vote Obama and all his
    job killing amateur administration out of office and Let America be
    America again!

    • Sincerely

      Don’t forget that for #5, some of those green and energy companies weren’t even **American.** Stimulus money was given to FOREIGN OWNED COMPANIES.

      That, in the middle of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, should be considered absolutely treasonous IMO

      • milt1007

        Dream on, it’s over:

        The following are 25 horrible statistics about the U.S. economy that
        Barack Obama does not want you to know….

        #1 The percentage of Americans that own
        homes is dropping rapidly. According to Gallup, the current level of
        homeownership in the United States is the lowest that Gallup has ever
        measured.

        #2 Home prices in the U.S. continue to fall
        like a rock as well. They have declined for six months in a row and are
        now down a total of 35 percent from the peak of the housing
        bubble. The last time that home prices in the United States were this low
        was back in 2002.

        #3 Last year, an astounding 53
        percent of all U.S. college graduates under the age
        of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.

        #4 Back in 2007, about 10 percent of all
        unemployed Americans had been out of work for 52 weeks or longer. Today,
        that number is above 30 percent.

        #5 When Barack Obama first became president,
        the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was
        2.6 million. Today, it is 5.3 million.

        #6 The average duration of unemployment in
        the United States is about three times as long as it was back in the
        year 2000.

        #7 Despite what the mainstream media would
        have us to believe, the truth is that the percentage of working age Americans
        that are employed is not increasing. Back in March 2010, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were
        employed. In March 2011, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were
        employed. In March 2012, 58.5 percent of all working age
        Americans were employed. So how can Barack Obama and the mainstream media
        claim that the employment situation in the United States is getting
        better? The employment rate is still essentially exactly where it was
        when the last recession supposedly ended.

        #8 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United
        States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United
        States have jobs.

        #9 In 1962, 28 percent of all jobs in
        America were manufacturing jobs. In 2011, only 9 percent of all jobs in America were
        manufacturing jobs.

        #10 In some areas of Detroit, Michigan you
        can buy a three bedroom home for just $500.

        #11 According to one recent survey,
        approximately one-third of all Americans
        are not paying their bills on time at this point.

        #12 Since Barack Obama entered the White
        House, the price of gasoline has risen by more than 100 percent.

        #13 The student loan
        debt bubble continues to expand at a very frightening pace. Recently it
        was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar
        mark.

        #14 Incredibly, one out of every four jobs
        in the United States pays $10 an hour or less at this point.

        #15 Household incomes all over the United
        States continue to fall. After adjusting for inflation, median household
        income in America has declined by 7.8 percent since December 2007.

        #16 Over the past several decades, government
        dependence has risen to unprecedented heights in the United States. The
        following is how I described the explosive growth of social welfare benefits in one recent article….

        Back in 1960, social welfare benefits made
        up approximately 10 percent of all salaries and wages. In the year
        2000, social welfare benefits made up approximately 21
        percent of all salaries and wages. Today, social welfare benefits
        make up approximately 35 percent
        of all salaries and wages.

        #17 In November 2008, 30.8 million Americans
        were on food stamps. Today, more than 46 million Americans are on food
        stamps.

        #18 Right now, more than 25 percent of all American children
        are on food stamps.

        #19 According to the U.S. Census Bureau,
        today 49 percent of all Americans live in a
        home that receives some form of benefits from the federal government.

        #20 Over the next 75 years, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38
        trillion dollars. That comes to $328,404 for each and every household in
        the United States.

        #21 During the first quarter of 2012, U.S.
        public debt rose by 359.1 billion dollars.
        U.S. GDP only rose by 142.4 billion dollars.

        #22 At this point, the U.S. national debt is
        rising by more than 2 million dollars every
        single minute.

        #23 The U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5 trillion dollars
        since the day that Barack Obama first took office.
        In a little more than 3 years Obama has added more to the national debt than
        the first 41 presidents combined.

        #24 The Federal Reserve bought up
        approximately 61 percent of all government debt issued
        by the U.S. Treasury Department during 2011.

        #25 The Federal Reserve continues to systematically destroy
        the value of the U.S. dollar. Since 1970, the U.S. dollar has lost more than 83 percent of its
        value.

          HERE ARE SOME REAL FACTS FOR YOU…STEP OUT OF YOUR BUBBLE, AND TURN OFF FOX NEWS!!!!
          #1 The percentage of Americans that own
          homes is dropping rapidly. According to Gallup, the current level of
          homeownership in the United States is the lowest that Gallup has ever
          measured. LOL, HOME SALES,CONSTRUCTION, AND VALUES HAVE ALL RISEN IN THE PAST 7 CONSECUTIVE MONTHS!!!!
          #2 Home prices in the U.S. continue to fall
          like a rock as well. They have declined for six months in a row and are
          now down a total of 35 percent from the peak of the housing
          bubble. The last time that home prices in the United States were this low
          was back in 2002. LOL, HOME SALES,CONSTRUCTION, AND VALUES HAVE ALL RISEN IN THE PAST 7 CONSECUTIVE MONTHS!!!!
          #3 Last year, an astounding 53
          percent of all U.S. college graduates under the age
          of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed. THE WORKFORCE PARTICIPATION RATE WENT UP LAST MONTH AND THE 5.3 MILLION JOBS HAVE BEEN CREATED SINCE THE LAST REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION LOST OVER MILLION JOBS.

          #4 Back in 2007, about 10 percent of all
          unemployed Americans had been out of work for 52 weeks or longer. Today,
          that number is above 30 percent. LOL, IT’S HARD TO RECOVER FROM A GOP ECONOMY AND LET DOWN!!!! BUT WE’RE COMING BACK!!! UNEMPLOYMENT WAS AT 10% 2 YEARS AGO, NOW WE’RE AT 7.8% FACTS, ITS HARD TO RUN FROM THEM!!!!!
          #5 When Barack Obama first became president,
          the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was
          2.6 million. Today, it is 5.3 million.
          #6 The average duration of unemployment in
          the United States is about three times as long as it was back in the
          year 2000. GOP TORE THE HELL OUT OF THE ECONOMY!!! SHIP JOBS TO CHINA… CAN WE SAY SENSATA FACTORY CLOSED BY ROMNEY’S BAIN CAPITAL….LOL, SURE VOTE FOR HIM!!!!
          #7 Despite what the mainstream media would
          have us to believe, the truth is that the percentage of working age Americans
          that are employed is not increasing. Back in March 2010, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were
          employed. In March 2011, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were
          employed. In March 2012, 58.5 percent of all working age
          Americans were employed. So how can Barack Obama and the mainstream media
          claim that the employment situation in the United States is getting
          better? The employment rate is still essentially exactly where it was
          when the last recession supposedly ended. STUPID WHO CARES!!!!!
          #8 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United
          States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United
          States have jobs. THIS ISN’T PREZ OBAMA’S FAULT….
          #9 In 1962, 28 percent of all jobs in
          America were manufacturing jobs. In 2011, only 9 percent of all jobs in America were
          manufacturing jobs. THERE ARE MORE MANUFACTURING JOBS NOW THAN WHEN PREZ OBAMA TOOK OFFICE.
          #10 In some areas of Detroit, Michigan you
          can buy a three bedroom home for just $500.
          THIS ISN’T PREZ OBAMA’S FAULT….
          #11 According to one recent survey,
          approximately one-third of all Americans
          are not paying their bills on time at this point.
          THIS ISN’T PREZ OBAMA’S FAULT….SOME FOLKS NEVER PAY THEIR BILLS
          #12 Since Barack Obama entered the White
          House, the price of gasoline has risen by more than 100 percent. THAT’S BECAUSE THE ECONOMY IS BETTER…. SUPPY AND DEMAND…. LEARN ABOUT IT. BUSH LEFT US A CRAPPY ECONOMY WITH NO DEMAND.
          #13 The student loan
          debt bubble continues to expand at a very frightening pace. Recently it
          was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar
          mark. WHAT PRESIDENT PASSED STUDENT LOAN REFORM????? PRESIDENT OBAMA!!!!! LEARN ABOUT IT…
          #14 Incredibly, one out of every four jobs
          in the United States pays $10 an hour or less at this point. THIS ISN’T PREZ OBAMA’S FAULT….
          #15 Household incomes all over the United
          States continue to fall. After adjusting for inflation, median household
          income in America has declined by 7.8 percent since December 2007. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, HOME PRICES HAVE RISEN FOR THE PAST 7 MONTHS. LOOK AT CASE-SCHILLER INDEX!!!!!!
          #16 Over the past several decades, government
          dependence has risen to unprecedented heights in the United States. The
          following is how I described the explosive growth of social welfare benefits in one recent article…. THIS ISN’T PREZ OBAMA’S FAULT….

          make up approximately 35 percent
          of all salaries and wages. THIS ISN’T PREZ OBAMA’S FAULT….
          #17 In November 2008, 30.8 million Americans
          were on food stamps. Today, more than 46 million Americans are on food
          stamps. CAUSED BY THE BUSH ECONOMY… WHY DOES AMNESIA OCCUR FOR GOP DISASTERS????
          #18 Right now, more than 25 percent of all American children
          are on food stamps.CAUSED BY THE BUSH ECONOMY… WHY DOES AMNESIA OCCUR FOR GOP DISASTERS????

          today 49 percent of all Americans live in a
          home that receives some form of benefits from the federal government. MEDICARE, SOCIAL SECURITY, IS OVER 30 PERCENT OF THOSE FOLKS.. GOOD JOB TO INFLATE FALSE NUMBERS.
          #20 Over the next 75 years, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38
          trillion dollars. That comes to $328,404 for each and every household in
          the United States. OBAMA ALLOWS THE SURVIVAL OF MEDICARE PAST 2017 WHEN IT WAS SCHEDULED TO BANKRUPT!!!!
          #21 During the first quarter of 2012, U.S.
          public debt rose by 359.1 billion dollars.
          U.S. GDP only rose by 142.4 billion dollars.WRONG, YESTERDAY PERSONAL INCOME ROSE BY .8% HIGHEST IN 4 YEARS. FROM THE COMMERCE DEPT…LOOK IT UP!!!!
          #22 At this point, the U.S. national debt is
          rising by more than 2 million dollars every
          single minute. BUSH’S WARS, MEDICARE PART D AND BAILOUTS OF BANKS. PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS THE LOWEST FEDERAL SPENDING PER YEAR SINCE WWII. BUSH FORGOT TO ADD THE WARS TO THE ANNUAL BUDGET JUST TO SHOW LOWER SPENDING WHEN IT WAS ACTUALLY HIGH!!!! LOOK IT UP
          #23 The U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5 trillion dollars
          since the day that Barack Obama first took office.
          In a little more than 3 years Obama has added more to the national debt than
