In a Post-Convention Bump, Romney Draws Huge Crowds in Cincinnati

By JEREMY W. PETERS

CINCINNATI – A crowd of thousands cheered Mitt Romney at a rally here during the opening leg of a cross-country campaign swing on Saturday, testing for the first time whether he can sustain political momentum coming out of the Republican National Convention.

A line of people that stretched for five city blocks awaited Mr. Romney as his motorcade pulled into the Union Terminal. Inside there were so many people that the campaign had to redirect a few hundred of them into a small overflow room, where they crammed in shoulder to shoulder.

They’re not going back to Chicago in January. Apparently, they’re moving to Hawaii.

Illinidiva on September 2, 2012 at 8:21 AM

“America’s going to come roaring back,” Mr. Romney said as he concluded. “We’re going to get America strong again, for you, for your children, for the future.”

The speech, complete with sports metaphors and the “roaring back” line, recalled the message of a Super Bowl commercial for Chrysler called “Halftime in America.” The ad’s star? A speaker who made a controversial appearance at the convention: Clint Eastwood.

I’m interested to see how mitt is using what Eastwood said….

Good for Newt for daring to walk into the fire.

Dems have such extraordinary hacks as surrogates. When you contrast virtually all of them to the normal GOP surrogates, I’d argue that I want the GOP surrogates as neighbors, while I want the Dem clowns in cuffs.

BTW: Michael Eric Dyson is a race-baiting crackpot. My only consolation is that he’s running around with such a WASPY name. If I didn’t know any better I could swear that he’s commenting here via Facebook as Kunta Kinte.

Setup the BS meters. Spinning the “recovery” as a success, ignoring the debt, ignoring failure in middle east, ignoring domestic energy potential, ignoring unemployment, claiming fiscal responsibility and of course some “cute” jabs at conservative solutions.

Won’t disclose their agenda… a la Pelosi,
You just have to re-elect them to see what’s in their plans.

JSL909 on September 2, 2012 at 8:26 AM

I’m about to watch “The Fountainhead”, which I recorded last week. I’ve seen it before, but it’s a good one. Any Rand wrote the screenplay herself after extracting a promise that not one word would be changed. Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal are smoking’ hot! Directed by King Vidor. Music by Max Steiner. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore!

As for the Sunday shows, I’ll be giving them a swerve this week. I can wait till later to hear their uplifting message of serfdom, Muslim outreach, abortion and infanticide.

Naturally Curly on September 2, 2012 at 8:27 AM

I don’t watch the shows because I see and hear enough of these liberals during the week. Besides, if the questions came up on fiscal matters, I would expect them to parrot the ‘white flight’ line (racism–hint hint) and tax rates kept too low in favor of remaining businesses. Followed by, “Republicans lie.”

Likely the same-old, same-old of the past forty years.

Too bad Rahm’s not on Fox News Sunday. I think Wallace does a good job of making pols uncomfortable, regardless of party. He’d get in Rahm’s face about the murder rate and the teacher’s strike. On MTP, Rahm will likely get asked about the White Sox chances in the postseason and the prospects for the Bears this year.

The speech hit some of the same notes that Mr. Romney made in Tampa, Fla., where he accepted his party’s nomination on Thursday night. He accused the president of putting teachers’ unions, not students, first.

Romney needs to hit school choice hard. AND Obama is on the hook for having spiked school choice in DC. Folks, this is a wedge issue for African-Americans and Romney needs drive it as deep as possible.

Mayor Antonio Villa-is-gross-a has vested interest in a BO second term. This inept mayor is pandering for an agency appointment to get out of the mess he has made before his name is associated with an LA bankruptcy. We are on the cusp of fiscal failure while this idiot is off galavanting around the lame stream media acting like he speaks for every “brown” face in America.

Timothy S. Carlson on September 2, 2012 at 8:07 AM

It’s really not that hard to “cut and paste” the Liberal Democrat’s rhetorical narrative these days—they’re all the same.

Was Pruden, at the Washington Times summed it up:

ANALYSIS/OPINION:
“This has been a tough week in Tampa for the stars of the mainstream media, so called. The Republicans aren’t acting like the bigots, zealots and wild-eyed extremists the boys and girls on the campaign bus want them to be.

There was grumbling in the seats of the press elites when the Republicans put so many women, blacks and Hispanics at the podium that it was hard to make believable the stereotype invented by the left — that the Republicans are all old white guys out to send women, barefoot and pregnant, back to the kitchen, and blacks in chains back to the cotton fields.

The speeches at the Republican National Convention were nearly all good ones; some, including Paul Ryan’s and Mitt Romney‘s, were very good. One or two (or three) — like those of Chris Christie, Condoleezza Rice and Susana Martinez — were even better, rousing the fever pitch of the delegates as convention speakers are hired to do. If this is a war on women and blacks, bring it on.

We can expect Bill Clinton and Barack Obama (and, if we’re lucky, Joe Biden) to toss similar fatty cuts of red meat to Democrats next week in Charlotte, N.C. But, alas, there were no calls in Florida for lynch mobs, no appeals to baser instincts, no piping of dog whistles. The only ugly stuff, or even false notes, were from disappointed correspondents……”

Wonder how the Democrats will produce anything close to what the RNC showed the American public last week.

Rovin on September 2, 2012 at 9:15 AM

ya know, i just noticed that the rnc logo had an elephant…the dnc logo has obama’s logo with people in it…kind of creepy as if it is the obama party instead of the dnc…

faraway on September 2, 2012 at 9:14 AM

Curious, isn’t it, that when a Pub does or says something no matter how small or large that a liberal favors, the Pub has ‘no standing’?

This election seems to me about voter suppression on the part of Dems. They badly need Republicans to stay home this time around, not only because Obama has no accomplishments that benefit the country as a whole, but I think also because there is such heavy watching for voter fraud.

Average liberals parrot the party line, while those deeply involved in Democrat politics seem quite worried. This is the first election Obama faces where he can’t get a judge to unseal court records on an opponent because there is nothing on Romney and Ryan to be used. That’s why, I think, the Administration and its MSM lapdogs are simply making things up, like how the word ‘golf’ is now a racist term.

The Dems need potential Romney voters to stay home, and most of those on TV and issuing ‘fact checks’ are all about making that happen.

Is it true that Mitt Rommey failed to mention the troops or the war in Afghanistan once in his speech?

The new liberal talking point, with the corollary that our troops don’t want Romney.

On the flip side, if Mitt mentioned the troops in even one sentence, the libs would instead be saying he’s a war-monger like Bush.

Stephanopoulos: No Bias in Media

MRCTV’s Joe Schoffstall ran into “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. When asked if he believes there is a liberal bias in the media, he responds,”I don’t.” When asked again, he walks away.

ROMNEY: Under my presidency our friends will see more loyalty and Mr. Putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone.

Ms. Jarrett often serves as a counterweight to the more centrist Clinton veterans in the administration, reminding them and her innately cautious boss that he came to Washington to do big things. Some of his boldest moves, on women’s issues, gay rights and immigration, have been in areas she cares about most. If Karl Rove was known as George W. Bush’s political brain, Ms. Jarrett is Mr. Obama’s spine. Source

The Obama adminstration, along with the Democrats and the MSM, have made it all but impossible to commit satire in 2012.
