Cindy McCain joined Romney at the Ehrnfelt Recreation Center.

Obama just proved that romney is correct that the government gets in the way of progress
"My instructions [have] been, do not figure out why we can't do something; I want you to figure out how we do something," Obama said Tuesday. "I want you to cut through red tape. I want you to cut through bureaucracy."
and followed with
"We’re going to cut through red tape. We’re not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules"
spin it all you want Obama said it ....and then repeated it again

While Romney stages a “relief event” where he receiving canned goods he bought at Wal-Mart for the photo op. He is collecting food (not needed) and clothes ( have to be cleaned, make work) the Red Cross has told his campaign are not needed or wanted. Maybe this genius should have given blood like the Red Cross asked. He's just a lying liar as the scared workers at Jeep know!!
5:33 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Romney doesn't have to worry about red tape, He will just get rid of FEMA......brilliant
6:27 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Agreed. I actually think the President learned a valuable less from the BP mess.
Namely, when the BP oil leak happened, why all the delays in (a) stopping leak, (b) preventing spreading, (c) cleaning and (d) helping those effected. Boats were sitting idle waiting for permission for several days while some seemed to like watching BP squirm.
Our current gov't has a tremendous amount of bloat and inefficiencies. Trust me. I worked in fed gov't for five years and still shocked. No accountability, metrics, etc.
Many work really work, but there's often no requirement to many others are unproductive or worse. We need to reform government and gov't spending (and our tax code). We are not only broke (if consider unfunded off-balance sheet obligations), but broken.
Either candidate can provide the leadership to fix the deep seated problems. The only question is who will.
7:47 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Actually if you have been watching the news they have been repeatedly showing the major of Hoboken, N.J. pleading with people for food and water. Also, the Red Cross has been requesting that people do NOT donate blood but money instead.
8:19 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Jody is upset that Romney is creating work for people by donating clothes... Hmmm. He is donating - not a good thing you say? Someone gets a job to clean the clothes prior to being distributed - not a good thing you say? You would rather he give blood? I am laughing my coffee right out my nose. :-) Thank you for the morning chuckle
4:33 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Further evidence that Obama is not regulation hound you Republicans have painted him to be. How refreshing is Obama's response to Sandy when compared to Bush's response to Katrina. "Helluva job Brownie".
4:48 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
thats what you got out of that huh....Obama is telling HIS administration that HIS red tape must be suspended to get things done .........If HIS administraton was so efficient WHY THE NEED TO "cut through the bureaucracy"
6:33 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
I don't know if Obama is, but Dodd-Frank, for example, is a mess. A true mess. Sure, Wall Street might have the resources to comply, but many smaller banks do not.
They have no understand of the impact of poorly drafted or implement regulations. Just because sounds good, doesn't mean it is.
Just consider Sarbanes-Ox. Implemented afte Enron, etc., yet those involved in Enron convicted under old laws. Now SarbOx a huge added cost on businesses.
We need regulations, but need to be much much smarter when it comes to regulations and spending.
Regarding Katrina, FEMA has improved a lot since Katrina, but few understand the gravity of Katrina and how it impacted an entire region knocking out police and basic services. Consider how Obama handled the BP oil spill to understand mistakes continue to be made. Finally, speeches don't matter much. Let's wait a week until we decide how well the response is to Sandy. If bad, I won't blame Obama. It was a massive storm and we're still not prepared for things like this.
Hat's off to those in uniform helping everyone.
4:53 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Republicans Censor Congressional Research Service
Report disproves Republicans tax theory! Wow!
5:19 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Wow thanks for that link to The New York Times ....It was right below this story ........Bloomberg Endorses Obama, Citing Climate Change
5:49 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
You are most welcome. GFY
8:09 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Brilliant Joseph! That must somehow also then by the property of transitivity prove Obama is correct about his entire health care overhaul with respect to his estimates of cost. NOT. Point being, stop being so anti-Romney... Instead, you tell me why Obama deserves another term and make your response about his deserving to be re-hired for a job at which he already failed. You may not like Romney, but that does not mean Obama is automatically the correct choice. Maybe you should sit this election out if you have no good reasons to vote for Obama, other than "hope for change", and do not want to vote for anyone else either?
5:24 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Way to go Brownie.......ha ha ha
5:27 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
First Colin Powell, the Chris Christi and now Michael Bloomberg ? Can you say " the moderate Republicans are jumping off the Mitanic" ?
5:51 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
I'll tell you who the "real" Mittens is m.z.1. He's the guy who, in the face of a natural disaster, sent his campaign staff out to buy food to give to his rally guests so that they could hand the food back over to Mittens in front of the cameras.....a total empty suit
9:09 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Food not wanted by the Red Cross, by the way. Salvation Army and Goodwill takes food, blankets, old shoes. The Red Cross takes donations, blood, volunteers. Had Mittens ever donated to them in his life, he would have known that. Or even looked at their website?
Red Cross responds: You are NOT helping. "Items such as collected food and used clothing must be sorted, cleaned, repackaged and transported... which impedes the valuable resources of money, time, and personnel."
6:56 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Getting back to the local emphasis that the Patch supposedly stresses: much of Northeast Ohio is still dealing with major issues related to this storm, including Strongsville residents who are still without electricity. While the local problems pale in comparision to what is going on in New York and New Jersey, people are still impacted.
So what's the answer: have a pep rally here in Strongsville, as if that's really going to help anything. And by the way, just wondering if there was any "diversity" at this rally. I don't see anyone in any of the above photos who is not white. Maybe the editors could provide evidence of some diversity, if possible.
7:25 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
awwwww very race card of you
so Ann Romney speaking here is in bad taste because of the damage on the east coast BUT its ok for Obama to speak in Green Bay, Wisconsin
7:48 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Tom Brennan I was there and Mrs Romney gave a very nice uplifting talk, but to answer your race baiting question, Yes there were many people there that would not fall into the Caucasian category
8:09 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
2000 rich racests in the same room afraid that they are going to have give some of there millions and give it to us
9:06 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
UAW filing an Ethic Complaint on Mittens
9:16 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Let me get this straight. The same folks allegedly Romney was against the auto bailout are now saying there's an ethic complaint if Romney profited from the bailout he was allegedly against.
I say "allegedly" because I've heard from many (including our President during the last debate) that Romney "would have liquidated the auto industry".
Let's start with the allegedly Romney NY Times Op Ed entitled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt". HE DIDN'T WRITE THAT. His title was something like "The Way Forward for the Auto Industry". The horribly pathetically biased NY Times wrote that title.
This is the first time I've heard this. Amazing.
Romney merely proposed an orderly bankruptcy. Guess what, that's what ended up happening after taxpayor funding. A bankruptcy.
I was floored by want I learned this. Here's the CNN link:
Vote this video before wasting your vote.
9:42 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
The Republican party put restrictions of who could see the canidates wife tonight
1) Prove that you were Mormon
2) Declaire that you are a Evangelical Christian
3) Cannot be Lesbian
4) You must be of the white race only
5) Not a member of Planned Parenthood
6) Rich, White, Republican,
7) Not part of the 47%
9:07 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Kind of funny Dan, but I was there and do not meet your criteria - I am not #1, #2, #6 or #7. I could easily write a "funny" list for Obama's appearances in Akron. However that would look to be sooooo wrong and un-PC and outrageously discriminatory that it can not be done. I will say that Obama lets anyone in the country and anyone vote regardless of whether they are even who they are suppossed to be... Maybe thats because it mirrors his life.
11:21 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
8) No union members allowed
9:19 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
The fact that you believe the speaking engagement was only for the above list shows that you do not understand why she was here. It was for anyone with an open mind to have a live experience and be part of the process. To hear a message delivered in person so one could objectively form an opinion unbiased by anything other than one's prior experiences. Everyone was welcome and there were many union members there btw, called TEACHERS.
10:14 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Members of the Energy Producing Unions and the United Mineworkers were very welcome.
11:27 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
And yes it's ok for Obama to speak in Wisconsin because he already toured and took care of business on the East Coast. The National Guard has been deployed and the clean up is well under way. This was no repeat of the Katrina response. Chris Christie basically called him a "savior."
9:23 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Looking at even the liberal news outlets just this morning, it seems many new yorkers are feeling they have been forgotten about since the storm is over and Obama's tour of duty and photo ops have been completed. Read it yourself, do not take my word for it. And its nice you all of a sudden like C.C. just because he shook Obama's hand and called him a savior! That must be music to your ears...
9:28 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Very inappropriate Scott S.. In the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster you can find a lot of grief and anxiety. Those people's lives have changed. You will see nothing approaching the incompetence of the Katrina effort. To judge a situation like this on such a short time frame might make for good political fodder but is uncalled for as a fellow American.
10:16 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
I am currently hosting a family of 4 that was displaced by SANDY, and have sent money and a package directly to 3 other families. What have you done, my fellow American Murphy, to directly help all those with grief and anxiety that you are so concerned about? (besides criticize Romney's actions)
10:23 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Murphy-Solon, I don't find any part of Scott's message "inappropriate". A week from now when people are killing each other for food and water and gas, Obama will be flying the blue skies. His appearance the past couple of days have been nothing more than a slight change of plans while campaigning. I get tired of hearing the snark about Bush and Katrina when the mayor had every chance to do his own job in advance and chose to do NOTHING.
You people act like Obama is a God for doing his job. Does your boss take to the blogs and praise you when you show up for work? This disgrace of a "leader" is ruining this nation and all you can do is kiss his ass? Horrific!
11:40 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
I just wish Republicans would stop and think for just one moment what it will be like when everything is privatized. Our schools, medicare, turnpkes and prisons to name a few. Who is gonna get the best of the best? The people that can PAY. Sure you'll get a voucher for your school or medical care, but when it's not enough...you better have the money set aside. Look Americans, we are not like Mitt Romney, we don't have millions, we don't have any savings. Let's hold on to the systems we were counting on. They want to give you a voucher.......it's not going to be enough!!!!!!!
12:14 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Private prisons ??? and you are worried who gets to use the best jails
and one of the reasons "we" dont have any savings is because Obama has restricted the drilling of oil offshore and on cheaper to drill public land, which then causes increased transportation costs on all our foods and goods not to mention my healthcare rising 25% because of my "cadillac plan" which still will not stop when the new healthcare taxes begin .... and as for vouchers GREAT I would prefer vouchers and the additional costs coming out of my pocket VS giving MY portion to the government to doll out
7:52 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Those were some astute observations Nancy. Our turnpike is profitable and a future revenue stream. If they lease it out for an expedited payday, they'd just spend the money now and the citizens will pay higher tolls. The private prison system now has a large lobbying arm going to state governments to fight non-prison sentences for marijuana possession. The more Americans in prison, the better the bottom line for private prisons...brilliant. Paul Ryan's Medicare voucher proposal is based on the premise that the Federal government can't afford the health care cost curve. So he want to give 72 year olds a fixed voucher and send them off to deal with the very same cost curve the Feds couldn't handle....brilliant. Privatizing schools would bring about the same problems that privatizing prisons and turnpikes would bring.
8:41 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
I wish you would think a bit here as well with respect to "everything being privatized"... Is it better that everything be government run? List for me the amazing and successfully wonderful efficient government run programs? Name them. ALL of them (I hear crickets). Your comment about "Lets hold on to the systems we were counting on" is typical of someone who does NOT want change, so it makes sense you would vote for Obama (the one who falsely spews hope and change and forward). I will take people running my life over government doing it every day. BTW, Obama has millions and a savings just like Romney so do not try speaking on behalf of Americans and say "we are not like Romney" because we are not like Obama for those exact reasons - Helllllo! Anyway, would you rather work for the government or a rich person? Before answering that I suggest you talk to any formerly employed federal worker.
10:27 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Well Nancy is certainly a Nancy. More Government. HEY NANCY... since when does the government make money to pay for ANYTHING? You know... um like MONEY?
GOOD GOD! Where do you people come from? Government school specimen here folks.
8:54 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
For all the anti-Romney poster people, I have 1 question. Why not simply list all the great accomplishments of Obama to persuade the republicans/conservatives to vote for Obama? The election is about Obama and his record. If he was doing so well and someone could show me how that is, I may vote for him. But all the Obama supporters do is attack the opposition. It is juvenile at best. Spell it out to me why Obama deserves to be re-hired for a job at which he already failed when measuring HIS performance against HIS own words about what HE was suppossed to do. Forget about Romney or any other candidate you do not like - I would not try to convince you to like them by bashing Obama - that is simply a silly tactic. So, how is Obama the correct choice just because you do not like the alternative? Maybe you should sit this election out or write in a name of someone you think is worthy of your vote. But to vote for Obama just because you do not like Romney is not logical.
11:13 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Scott, I will be more than happy to....
Thank you, President Obama for your many achievements, despite strong Republican obstructions:
+ Led the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
+ Improved US relationships with most allies.
+ Directed killing of several leaders of Al Qaida.
+ Implemented harsh sanctions on Iran.
+ Brought together coalition to remove dictator Gaddhafi from power in Libya.
+ Implemented Obamacare to provide healthcare for millions of people who
previously did not have health coverage, and to mandate several health cost-cutting measures.
+ Ended the discriminatory Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy in the military.
+ Supports same-sex marriage.
+ Supports the equal pay act to provide equal pay for women and men.
+ Led the nation out of worst recession (gotten into by Bush) in many decades.
+ Implemented stimulus act to revive economy.
+ Ended war in Iraq, an unnecessary and unbudgeted war started by George W Bush.
+ Began drawdown of war in Afghanistan.
+ Passed necessary Wall Street reform to prevent future financial collapse.
+ Helped turn around auto industry.
+ And, much, much more!
Go Obama-Biden! Vote early!
11:39 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Although I would like to believe you, I know that no matter what I say about Obama's accomplishments you would have some excuse as to why it isn't true. The hatred towards Obama on the right is so strong that Obama could come out with the cure for cancer, and your side would still hate him. What matters is that I know what Obama's accomplishments are, and I also am well aware of what Obama had to start with in January of 2008.
10:17 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Don't pimp out the misery of fellow Americans for political gain.
10:26 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
"Killing each other for food, water and gas"? You're hysterical and shameful. This is a time for co-operation and courage.
10:29 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Uh, excuse me there Dumpster, the Ohio Turnpike turns a profit every year. It's a fine example of what government does right.
11:45 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Also, Medicare is an extremely efficient program. The percent of money spent going directly to healthcare is higher than any private insurance company provides. The reason Medicare is running out of money is obvious....the population is aging and is draining the coffers. Some reform is definitely needed...just not vouchers.

October Jobs report
with the unemployment rate ticking up to 7.9 percent but the economy adding a better-than-expected 171,000 jobs.
At the same time, the number of unemployed grew by 170,000, roughly the same amount -- to 12.3 million. .......................really +1,000 jobs gained thats 20 jobs per state or 1 new job for every 4 counties in ohio
2:08 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
Geeeee when you put it that way
2:50 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
Ann is a class act, just like her husband...
Here is what a lack of class and corruption looks like:
Do you think Obama is a good guy and a straight shooter? Read on, please:
Obama has been an economic disaster the last four years, and this Benghazi disgrace is completely unacceptable... This country does not reward failure and dishonesty out of the White House...
You see, it's easy to run on a slogan, like Obama did in 2008... Hope and change, baby... It's much harder to do once you have a record that can be reviewed... He also said in 2008 that if he didn't get the job done in four years, that it would be a one term deal... Well, he hasn't delivered, so time to let him keep his word... Romney/Ryan 2012
2:51 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
And lets not forget those four who were left to be slaughtered in Benghazi...
Every voter needs to read this excellent article... Very well worth your time...
These are pretty good as well:
2:53 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
"This country doesn't reward failure and dishonesty out of the White House"? You just defined the Bush years my man....ha ha ha
4:16 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
Perhaps, Murphy-Solon, but Bush isn't in this race, and the reason it's as tight as it is, beyond the Benghazi lies, of course, is that fact that Obama has based his entire campaign on blaming Bush for everything... It's like the last four years under his "leadership" don't mean anything... Now, I don't blame him for not trying to run on his own pitiful record, but the voters are no longer buying that blame Bush BS, nor are they willing to accept his stonewalling and silence on Benghazi...
3:39 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
LIke the Washington Post reports, Romney's campaign is an insult to voters
4:21 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
Joseph, imagine that... An attack piece from a liberal rag of a newspaper covering issues that have already been answered or that no one cares about... Meanwhile, they have absolutely ignored the on-going scandal and coverup on Benghazi, which gives them zero credibility as a news entity... They are a mouthpiece of the DNC, just like MSNBC...
5:14 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012
Colter95 is a canned spammer out of Virginia. Don't click on his links, that's how he gets paid. I wish Colter95 would get a real job. Isn't he who Mittens refers to as " the Takers"
8:49 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Murphy-Solon, you don't know me, and I don't get paid to post or have anyone click on any links... And while I live in VA now, my family is originally from Ohio... First Cleveland, and then Cincinnati... I have family and friends all over the state, so what happens there concerns me greatly... Hence, I post in what I believe... Like you, I guess, but unlike you, I don't call you names or make assertions for your reasons for posting here... Typical Obama supporter, I suppose... Always more wrong than right, regardless of subject...

I saw Obama yesterday claiming the new job numbers are proof that his policies are working and that we are in an economic recovery... Fact is, that is not the truth, or even close to the truth...
First, the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9% and the year-to-date monthly average of 157,000 payroll jobs is barely enough to keep up with population growth -- much less make up for the 8 million jobs lost during the Great Recession.
Second, the so-called real unemployment rate (U6) remains elevated at 14.6%, albeit down from 14.7% the prior month. Similarly, the labor participation rate is at 63.8%, up from its multi-decade low but still incredibly weak.
Third, average hourly earnings fell a penny in October and average hours worked fell to 34.4 from 34.5 in September.
Stagnant wages means "we're not generating income," Reinhart says. "That's a problem in terms of the durability of an economic expansion, which is usually fueled by consumption. To get consumption you've got to generate income."
Also, just look at your checkbook. We are paying a lot more for everything now than we did in 2008. The price of gas has doubled. At the same time, wages have gone down, and that's if you're lucky to have a job.
In 2008, 25 banks went out of business. In 2012, 48 banks have gone out of business. Almost double the amount. Does that sound like recovery to you? Don't believe the Obama lies!!
