Tell Us: Should Mitt Romney Pass on Pennsylvania?

Pennsylvania's swing state status may be in doubt as Mitt Romney seems less interested in campaigning here

Pennsylvania's swing-state status may be in jeopardy as GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney seems to place little importance on winning votes here, according to a PoliticsPa report.

Voters here have elected a Republican governor and senator - but not a GOP president since George H.W. Bush in 1988. A recent poll has moved Pennsylvania from the toss-up category to "lean Dem."

Romney made a drive-by last year.

What do you think? Should Romney spend more time and money campaigning in the Keystone State?

if you LOVE AMERICA you will vote regardless, sickening how many Americans do not vote. In 2008 only 63 percent of registered voters voted.
Tony June 08, 2012 at 07:28 PM
If you love the status quo or worse then vote for Romney.
H smith June 15, 2012 at 09:23 PM
I know lots of politicians lie, but this man lies about EVERYTHING. It says a lot about his character, or lack of character. Why would anyone vote for this man who doesn't even have the backbone to stand up for his own record?
Frank June 16, 2012 at 04:48 AM
Romney is clueless and will never be President. He has lost the Independent and Latino vote.
Frank June 16, 2012 at 04:49 AM
You're right, H smith. There isn't ONE good reason for anyone to vote for this flopper.
Mark Redfox June 25, 2012 at 03:23 PM
How can anyone vote for this moron? He is on record for saying that he doesn't care about what happens to Europes economy. My 12 year old son knows that whats happens over seas directly effect our economy. I dont agree with everything Oboma has done or hasn't done in his first term, but he is the lesser of the 2 evils. God help us all if Romney win the election

Liberals are Losers....its no big deal that the Republican Idea Health Plan passed. They wanted it so bad in the 1990's. Policitics as usual because a dem got their idea passed. no goverment worker or public employee here. I'm a small business owner that gets a $2100 month quote to buy health insurance. I guess you are one of the lucky ones that can afford that.

look at all the ignorant writers, none have a clue, just like "the Moaning Flaw" and its presstatutes, all without exception, morons.
mark wood June 25, 2012 at 03:52 PM
don't opine, I ignore morons, thats you if you read this.
Tony June 25, 2012 at 04:00 PM
Can't wait for the almighty Joseph Smith to come bless us from planet Kolob! Oh it will be a joyous event.
Liberalism is a mental disorder June 25, 2012 at 04:06 PM
You Patch wonks only weigh in if somebody is taking a shot at Obama. I never see you post when somebody is taking a shot at Romney. Just further evidence that even at this level, the press is in the bag for Obama.
Liberalism is a mental disorder June 25, 2012 at 04:08 PM
Romney is a highly successful business man. He understands how business and an economy works. That's what we need now. Not a little community organizer who has never held a real job that produces anything tangible. How's that change workin' for ya'.
Liberalism is a mental disorder June 25, 2012 at 04:09 PM
Well, since Obama brought about such "change", then the status quo is now Obama's doing.... you know, 15% unemployment. Massive debt. If you want the status quo, Barry Obama, the little community organizer, is your man.
Liberalism is a mental disorder June 25, 2012 at 04:10 PM
Oh ya... he's lost the independent vote. That's why he's tied in the polls with Obuma.
Liberalism is a mental disorder June 25, 2012 at 04:11 PM
So Obama, who attended the White Man Hater Church, with Reverend Wright, is better, huh? Notice how Obama does not attend any church now that he can't go to the America and white man hater church of Reverend Wrong.
Tony June 25, 2012 at 04:54 PM
well I am not sure if it is found in their scriptures that its a White Man Hating Church, but just some nut up there ranting on stage. However up to 1978 Romney's church hated minorities, especially black people. It was a sin to marry any minority or black skinned person. Also the 'N' word was cited multiple times through out their Godly scriptures. That's not what America is about. Hate. So maybe when Joseph Smith comes down from planet Kolob we will be saved. That sir is fact. He lives on planet Kolob. Fact.
Tony June 25, 2012 at 04:55 PM
Liberals are Losers. Only on the Fox news polls. Stop watching so much of that fake news channel please
Tony June 25, 2012 at 04:56 PM
To be fair it took 8 years to destroy the country, can't be fixed in 4. He tried but those House repubs are blocking even things they said they agreed with. hmmm i guess that's why only about 8 or 9% of americans like the House.
Frank June 25, 2012 at 04:57 PM
To: Liberals are Losers, are you like in the 3rd grade? Do you really expect anyone to take you seriously with a handle like this? And by the way... that "Hope and Change" is working just fine. Change is a process, not an event. Now, grow up.
Tony June 25, 2012 at 04:58 PM
A business man will be a great president??? I guess George Washington was a successful business man as well, Jefferson, Lincoln. Only successful business men would be good. But then we need to define successful. Bernie Madoff was a success at what he did. So is Romney to an extent, with all the american jobs he cut and shipped overseas. I wonder how that change is workin for those folks and his old state where he passed RomneyCare.
Tony June 25, 2012 at 05:01 PM
Press isn't in the bag for Obama. He's been quite criticized. However, Romney can't relate with anyone, unless they have half a brain or less. In PA for instance, he went down to "Wawaz" and bought a sub. "Wawaz" wth is a "Wawaz". Oh he meant Wawa. You know I do enjoy eating at McDonald and Wendy. How about Taco Bellz and Burger Kingz. Sounds ridiculous, you know why...because it is. lol
Carl W June 28, 2012 at 06:20 AM
No, the more money he blows, the less he has. Just like he changed his stop, AND LIED about why, in Quakertown, doesn't mean he shouldn't screw himself again!
louis kootsares August 11, 2012 at 03:03 PM
i am doing what michelle obahma spoke about.. i am getting lots of people out to vote actually it has been easy i have not spoken to anyone who is coherent and can say their name the same way 3 times ..who is going to vote for that traitor obahma
Jennifer Moyer August 17, 2012 at 11:26 AM
PA has a large continency of knee jerk liberals. Unfortunately, for Romney to come to PA may be wasting his resources.
Donald Olson September 16, 2012 at 12:30 PM
There are too many people in PA that can see Romney for what he is. Why has he only won one election in his vast political career. As for the church comment, services are held in the White House. Would you like to have the Obamas and the secret service interupting your services. Of coarse that is if you attend church services. Get real!
joan September 19, 2012 at 06:13 PM
status quo is the last 4 yrs. I am not offened by Romney. I am however offened by those who do NOT contribute to our society in a productive,functional responcible capacity; be cause they are NOT socially responcible and need govenment to be daddy. To have to carry the extra dead weight of those who will not contribute is OFFENSIVE.
Carl W September 21, 2012 at 08:19 AM
I was a Hillary supporter, now MUCH more impressed w/ the President than I ever thought I'd be. Absolutely NO to Romney. Where did you get these 'facts'???
Carl W September 21, 2012 at 08:21 AM
Did you take particular notice to the Republican majority putting down every thing he tried to do, that they could???
Carl W September 21, 2012 at 08:27 AM
"STATUS quo is the last 4 yrs. I am not OFFENDED by Romney. I am however OFFENDED by those who do NOT contribute to our society in a productive,(Space)functional "responcible" ??? capacity; be cause they are NOT socially "responcible" (it's "responsible") and need govenment to be daddy. To have to carry the extra dead weight of those who will not contribute is OFFENSIVE." You're right! Every new-born should pay taxes as soon as he pops out, and get a job right after thay cut the cord. And what about all those cronies taking up space in "intensive care" units?
Carl W September 21, 2012 at 08:30 AM
Joan, you make a great example of the need for more money for education. If we get some, maybe you can get a grammar course !!
