After finishing a canvassing shift today in Columbus, Ohio I stopped by the early voting location for the county , just to see how crazy it was.

Thank you for posting that. Clearly President Obama has successfully led the nation through a dangerous time, and I look forward to continued progress during his second term.

I will say to you as I have said to others, popping up here from nowhere with a message that seems to hit on all of the Romney talking points--particularly when no location shows up--just sounds a bit fishy to me.

I don't really understand how the myth of a failed Europe has gone on for as long as it has in the US. One would think that after 20 exhausting years of crowing that Europe is dead in the water with no result, that the myth might have lost some of its shine. Maybe there just isn't enough US travel to European countries to create a working knowledge of Europe in popular American consciousness?
You do realize that Europe scores worse in nearly all economic indicators, and is doing so with the US paying for its defense.

RS--every opportunity that Romney has had to act (or DO) in ways that might be considered "Presidential" he has blundered badly. His spin across the globe resulted in crowds of Londoners booing him, and the Isreali embarrassment. In response to Sandy, he recalled a high school punishment that required him to pick up trash on a football field. He couldn't even organize a food drive (a less than helpful gesture anyway) without buying props.
I am certain that there is a niche in the world for Romney. Being President of the United States just doesn't fit.
according to you the communist.

Tomorrow the majority of Americans will tell the truth; and Obama will be fired.

your empty suit god could not operate a lemonade stand.

Romney has multiple chain retail establishments operating today very profitably that were purchased after complete bankruptcy of original owners. Today those 2 chains employ over 30,000 people. Both are headquartered in America; and operate here. Columbus has both stores.

Sports Authority; and Staples.

Obama has nothing but 2 books; and a record of failure.

listening to a word you say is only done by stupid people. Anyone with half a brain can see through your BS.

Unless you completely discount the importance of the election process.
you need to follow your own advice.

why would I waste a single second to read your link?

flicker? like a boogie in your nose?

I will rely on election results as my fact.

PS: notice crowd size at any of the campaign stops?

Obama the king had 2800 show up at his last visit here to Columbus.

Romney rally tonight at the airport is expecting 30,000.

The fact that the kook who preceded him was voted out should tell you all you need to know about what Ohio thinks.

Get lost, Reader. We've endured a solid month of out of state leftist bags of hate showing up here. And you happily rubbed up to them like a lonely old indoor cat.

Like average personal debt, wage parity, women's workforce participation or unemployment?

Maybe home ownership rates?

Poverty rates?

Europe's got a lot of variety out here. A country here in Europe scores better than the US in each of the indicators I've listed above. If you're actually interested, I would love to chat more about what the varying but interlinked economies of Europe could teach the US and vice versa.It's common but quite silly for folks in the US to wave away successful European models and tools because of a poorly constructed myth that America hasn't anything to learn.

And if the job of the Presidency were to sell sporting goods and office supplies, you might well have a point.

However, when he has been in the international arena as a candidate, he bombed, and he did so stupidly.

Ditto his desperate attempt to show that he knows how to respond to natural disaster.

according to you who has to watch a youtube video to use tampax.

The stunning record of success that Obama has, you seem to be the only person to recognize it.

Ask the people of Staten Island how well Obama's team has done in the disaster. Epic failure.

BS. Still crying about the truth Romney spoke in London? Your boy has done nothing but make the world a more unstable, dangerous place while giving our best friends the finger.

Europe would be Russian serfs without the large American defense budget. And there is a good chance it will be Islamic by mid century.

Europe is a walking example of failure, the one country that prospers, Germany, does so by a devalued currency that is overvalued for the rest of Europe.

Wantin' ain't gettin'.

I tried to find some confirmation about the expected crowd size for Romney. They are using the Marshall Tucker Band as a draw and it's practically a fly-by for Romney--held at Landmark Aviation.

Tickets seem to be easily available.
