Will Mitt Romney visit Sandusky?

Will the Republican who is running for president be visiting Sandusky before the election? — Sean from Sandusky

Thus far, we haven't heard anything about Mitt Romney planning to visit Sandusky. Like we do every presidential election year, we reached out to both candidates (and by reached out, I mean we pestered the bejeezus out of their campaign staffs) inviting them to visit Sandusky starting in January. In 2008, John McCain visited the Washington Park gazebo before the election and this year we had President Barack Obama stop by the same stumping location in July. Each time we were given only a few days notice to get ready. So, even though we haven't heard about a Romney visit, it's still possible in the next five or so weeks before the election he will announce a campaign stop. Ohio is an important battleground state and both candidates seem to be covering a lot of ground. If you're passionate about seeing Romney campaign in Sandusky, don't underestimate the power of persistence. Call or email the local Republican party folks and the national campaign and tell them you'd like to see the candidate visit your hometown.

doggie, 7.2% unemployment 01/01/09, Plus 8% since then and we aren't even counting the folks who has given up looking for a job, underemployed and those who's unemployment insurance has ran out, spin it any way you can, your messiah has failed and should join the ranks of unemployed. Of course he never really ever had a real private sector job in his entire life....

kURT, your statement, the fitting reply, “Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.”

Old enough to pay 8 years of my dues !I was being polite I didn't want to say rags because you probably would be offended !

I don't think any of you have your 'facts' straight or know what the heck is going on. Neither does Mitt. Obama is the lesser of two evils but I don't think there is anyone that can fix all that is broken. I also don't think we are given all the facts about government or the people running it. We may all be euthanized one day to make room for Chinese citizens.

doggie, from CNN, not exactly a supporter of the conservative message. Once a again a democrapper not leting the facts get in his way......

CNN 09/05/2012-"Mayor Castro (D) of San Antonio, Texas cited these numbers during his speech at the DNC they are an accurate description of the growth of private-sector jobs since January 2010, when the long, steep slide in employment finally hit bottom. But while a total of 4.5 million jobs sounds great, it's not the whole picture.
Nonfarm private payrolls hit a post-recession low of 106.8 million that month, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The figure currently stands at 111.3 million as of July.

While that is indeed a gain of 4.5 million, it's only a net gain of 300,000 over the course of the Obama administration to date. The private jobs figure stood at 111 million in January 2009, the month Obama took office. The jobs lost will not return many of them are now overseas."

@ SF:

At Jackson Hole, Fed Chairman Bernanke said that the Fed Reserve created 2 million of those 4.5 million jobs.

2.5 million jobs is pathetic and 'nothing' to crow about.

More to crow about than losing 800,000 jobs a month.

To the topic.....who cares........

Smcc Student

Kurt, of all the posts your have made, I've yet to see you make at least one intelligent argument. So far all you do is post one or two lines of absolute nonsense.

And to what you said about the "Topic". Obviously you care, considering you took the time to comment on it.
