Thousands rally for Romney and Ryan in North Canton

Thousands rally for Romney and Ryan in North Canton

McCLatchy Newspapers

NORTH CANTON, Ohio Appealing to the same voters through different strategies, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney forwarded their arguments across the key swing states Friday as they kept an eye on an approaching storm that threatened their campaign travel.

Romney hit Iowa and Ohio, criticizing new economic reports as evidence of a need for change in the White House and painting a troubling picture of a second Obama term.

“You see, if he’s re-elected you’re going to have the status quo. You’re going to have more of the same for four years,” Romney told thousands gathered at a bitterly cold rally at Hoover High School in North Canton. “He calls it forward, I call it forewarned. You’ve seen what the last four years have brought.”

He singled out college students, who supported Obama in record numbers four years ago.

“I don’t understand how a college kid could vote for Barack Obama, not because he’s a bad guy, but just because he doesn’t understand that as he spends this money and says how much he’s helping you, he’s in fact spending your money and you’re going to have to pay it back with interest,” Romney said.

The rally — 12,000 tickets were given out, although there was no official crowd estimate — was billed as Friday Night Lights, a nod the Northeastern Ohio Friday night football tradition.

I am a republican and I voted for President Obama in the last election. i voted across party lines not because I supported his policies but I thought it was the right thing to do for our country at the time.
This election we need Ohio Democrats to vote across party lines because we need a pro-business president. Business needs a shot in the arm to get healthy and start creating jobs for the poor and middle class. Its up to the Ohio Democrats to vote for Romney/Ryan and make the USA strong again.
Please let the Pro- business team run the country for the next four years, and maybe in 2016 I will vote for your candidate Hillary.

Let's see. Romney has made millions by closing down American businesses and sending jobs overseas.

He was elected once in Mass. for Gov then they did not want him back.

Now his own state of Mass. will not even vote Romney for Pres.

What does that tell you about the man?

He enacted romneycare and now criticizes Obama for doing the same.

Romney is breathing easy; the American public’s attention has turned from his refusal to release his income tax returns. For the most part the American public is unaware in the scant few tax returns Romney released it showed Mitt transferred into Ann’s name an offshore LLC just before the took office as governor of Mass. Mitt and Ann are the Bonnie and Clyde of America.
Huffington Post came out a few weeks ago with Bain Capitals links to questionable deals in Russia, Veterans Today came out yesterday with an article which further explained the ‘deals’ and the deep tentacles into corruption* little knowing they lead right into Michigan.

I can't for the life of me figure out what middle class Valley dwellers have in common with a guy worth $250mm and whose companies have outsources thousands of jobs to Asia. Just can't figure out how that resonates with someone living paycheck to paycheck! This is the guy that's going to fix everything for you?
Despite the facts that he has flipped on nearly every major stance such as abortion, medical reform ('Obamacare' was crafted after his solution while governor of Mass) and the auto-industry bailout.

The Valley has always been made up of conservative democrats. They know and have seen what the liberal democrats have done to the country when given the chance to lead.
The election will be a landslide for the businessman, the conservative democrats and silent majority will stop the receipient class cold in their track to lead the greatest nation on earth down the road to entitlements and ultimately anarchy.

As someone who works at GM, I am tired of Obama saying that Romney wanted GM to fail. Romney pushed for a managed Bankruptcy instead of a bailout which would have still saved GM and Chrysler without the government ownership we see today. The president has been called out on this lie several times and I cannot believe he is still spewing the same message.

FLHTCUI Well , I guess Cherysler lied because I have relatives who work there and they were told that it was possible that that could be closed. When the reality of their decision hit them in the face they changed their minds. But I guess you are one of the people who thinks that BO ( Blame Others ) only speaks the truth. What a shame!

America is a awesome country!

Four years ago you elected a young black man to be the president in a country dominated by old white men.

This year you are about to elect a ultra rich non-christian to be the president in a country dominated by middle class christians.

America's tolerance is awesome. It gives me hope that my Hindi children may seek high political office.

Thank you America!

The Democrats should be renamed F.R.E.E. Which when broken down stands for FREELY RELAX - EXPECT EVERYTHING. Obama is giving away the farm, however we are paying for it. Yes, us the taxpayers. Obama has been on the campaign trail his whole presidency. Now he is coming to the Valley with Slick Willie. Obama should have just brought Hugh Hefner with him.

Right you are, nascar, if Hef brought few of his girl friends, at least we'd have something nice to see while the politicians try to screw us.

Hey the other side, do you remember the Dot Com bubble Clinton left us. Many investors lost their shirts.

Remember 9-11. Homeland Security was founded to keep Americans safe, & it cost trillions,& yet in 8 yrs, Bush did not add to our Natl Debt like Obama has.

You're calling everyone names, is that because you can't debate properly. If I called you a DEMO c RAT, would you like that?

A man who ignores the cries of his team in Libya, lets them be slaughtered, and fires a general for refusing to "stand down" is not going to get my Ohioan vote for President. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/...
