What are the people of Avon Lake OH saying about Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney's Monday morning visit?
7:39 am on Monday, October 29, 2012
What a great learning opportunity for our high school students. It wouldn't matter if it is Romney or Obama - to be exposed to politics on this level is a great learning experience.
8:52 am on Monday, October 29, 2012
David, you are correct!! I think it is good to hear either candidate voice an opinion in a public forum, especially within our community. Be it Obama or Romney, both believe in a strong America and the right to voice an opinion concerning how to do it is something the students need to see. I LOVE America!!
12:05 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Interesting ... I see it as completely inappropriate in a school environment. That is the place to learn both sides, not a place for a partisan rally. If it were at the school, it should and could have been held after the school day, which would have been fine.

Wish I had known, would have driven out!
1:14 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
jt does that include obama at Kent State Or Obama at Bowling Green or even Obama at Ohio State (in which he brought buses to take students to the polling booths to vote early)

Comparing a President or Presidential nominee appearing at a (high) school and a college campus is apples and oranges.

Wonder if he'll address the Avon Lake 9 mil levy and help explain that into his reasons for cutting education funding.
1:05 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Maybe you can explain where the funding will come from given we borrow $1 trillion a year from China already.
Candidate Obama: "The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back - $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic." (July 3, 2008)
Why is it $16 Trillion now??
1:12 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
when romney gets rid of the department of education it will free up its 73 billion dollar budget
11:25 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Why in the world would someone running for President of the USA address a LOCAL school funding issue?
How about having your STATE lawmakers address it. You know -- the ones (mainly Republicans) who've been ignoring FOUR separate OH Supreme Court rulings since 1997. Including the current Kasich administration.
11:27 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
"Maybe you can explain where the funding will come from given we borrow $1 trillion a year from China already.
Why is it $16 Trillion now??"
Really? You're seriously asking this? Oh...I forgot....die-hard Republicans refuse to accept responsibility or fact. Good grief people are stupid.
11:39 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Jack explain how the Republicans and not the Democrats are solely responsible?
Good grief. Democrats are the party of blame and lack of accountabilty?
Instead of silly comments, show us exactly how you think R's and not D's are responsible for the debt and deficits.
12:54 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Props to everyone who attended the rally today. Orderly crowd on the way in and out. Great reflection on Avon Lake and surrounding communities. And thanks to everyone who stopped to say hello and recognized Patch.
11:30 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Are you happy with the way things have gone for the last four years? Do you feel your freedom has been eroded? Oblamo actually states that he will work to substancially increase taxes! Obamacare----think! I know it`s hard----but you`ll have to use your brain---just a little.
12:59 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Yes, I am much happier with the direction our country is headed than when Cheney/Satan/GWB were in the White House.
I want more Supreme Court justices like Sotomayor & Kagan appointed, certainly not more like Thomas and Scalia.
And I look forward to tax rates on the wealthiest Americans returning to Regan-era levels.

VOTE...IN YOUR FAMILIES BEST INTEREST....THERE IS ALLOT AT STAKE FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS....Romney/Ryan Rebublican Agenda basically proposes three big things: slashing Medicaid, cutting taxes on corporations and high-income people, and replacing Medicare with a drastically less well funded voucher system. These concrete proposals would, taken together, actually increase the deficit for the first decade and beyond.
Mitt Romney said at the first debate, that he had a "plan" for health care that included pre-existing conditions and the next day his campaign said that was NOT correct. So, GOOD LUCK in finding an insurance company who accepts pre-existing conditions! This applies to EVERYONE...not just seniors!.... Not even the over 55 seniors are safe if Medicare is slowly starved of funding as Republicans plan to do..... VOTE…in your families BEST interest…We all know what it has been like for our families and friends, since 2008, when wall street recklessness and the banks crashed the economy. We just cannot go BACK to the FAILED Bush Policies that Romney embraces, that almost sent us into a Depression!...
9:05 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Carl, Romney is not Bush, and that lame argument has grown stale since it's pretty much the primary Obama campaign issue... Blame everything bad during the last four years on Bush, and then assert that Romney is a Bush clone... That's a load of dung, and the voting public knows it... It's in the polls already... We all know, that a lot of what gets said during debates and during a campaign never gets followed up on... I mean, just look at all the Obama campaign promises of 2008... How many did he get done? None... Obama said if he didn't deliver in the first four years, that it should be a one term deal for him... Well, for once I totally agree with him... Just look at the last four years and ask yourself if you want another four years of the SOS? I, for one do not... It's all about the bottom line for me, and being able to pay my bills... And in the last four years, everything has gone up in price, and wages have gone down... New, good jobs are nonexistent... His policies have failed, he's lied on Benghazi, and he offers nothing new moving forward... No thanks...
6:08 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
I know we screwed up your country and bankrupted it to our gain, but Obama couldn't fix it in just 4 years. Therefore we feel you should not blame any of us and just vote us back in for another try. Thank you
8:58 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
This another reason I am not supporting Obama this time. All the Democrats do is blame somebody else like they were not there the whole time voting on all the same stuff when they made it worse. Hey Joe - Obama voted for the budgets and to not regulate the housing market. He is every bit as responsible but he is such an immature baby all he can do is blame someone else.
"Barack Obama once promised to hold himself accountable, but now he's making excuses and blaming others for his failures. The 'great uniter' has resorted to dividing the American people against each other by creating animosity and scorn to win reelection. He doesn't have a record to run on, so he's painting his opponent as someone people should run from."
Don't fall for Obama's lies and false promises a second time. He is proposing more spending and more debt. We cannot afford Obama and our children can't take on any more debt.
9:32 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Excuses are Useless! Your boy said himself if he didn't fix this mess in three years he would be a one term proposition. That's the only thing he's been right about so far.
I'm waiting for Obama to blame this storm on Bush.
7:54 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
The closer election day gets, the more apprehensive the voters become. Those who carefully assess the overall situation are hopeful that the President will prevail. The malcontents and know-it-alls want and need a "magic elixir" that will make the recovery instantaneous. We are slowly recovering from a catastrophic recession. One that will take many more years to overcome. We are slowly ( read: correctly ) making progress. Voters will decide next Tuesday. Do they want it NOW....or do they want it done RIGHT ?
9:37 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Sure. By all means you "folks" want the "Transformation of The United of America", done right.
Sorry to say, us "The malcontents and know-it-alls" are not going to let that happen.
9:13 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
We would already be in a full recovery, save for Obama's domestic economic policies, which have pretty much killed the economy... He's a blamer, not a fixer, and for that alone he needs to go... Add the on-going Benghazi disgrace and coverup, and that just confirms my decision... I cannot support a man I don't have faith in to resolve the issues we face... I cannot support a man that I believe is a serial liar... Romney/Ryan 2012
9:43 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
What a joke. Look at what michele obama said last week. Obama is the KING of blaming others.
“See, but your president, he didn’t point fingers,” Mrs. Obama said, at a campaign fundraiser in New York. “He didn’t place blame. Instead, he got to work, because he was thinking about folks like my dad and like his grandmother."
But one day before, on Thursday, Obama blamed the policies of “the previous president” for the ongoing weak economy.
Obama, take some responsibility, try and at least pretend to act presidential. name calling and blaming others is like my 5 year old always saying "not me" when she gets in trouble. Obama is the "Not Me' President.

Beth grow up with your spam posting garbage. Does giving FEMA back to the states count as "getting rid of" or was that your pathetic attempt to make a political point. Why is it so terrible? Right now emergency services are more important to states affected than say Oklahoma or Montana.....localizing emergency services might just make it more efficient.
Obama proposed cutting FEMA's budget and you failed to mention that.
Oh and throw in woman stuff.....what a tool. Get lost. Women are smarter than yuo give them credit for. They care about jobs, the economy and their families future - one that shouldn't burden their kids with $20 trillion of debt.
Let me try your cheesy posting technique....
Why did Obama deny help to the Americans who were killed in Libya?
3:35 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
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."
The RED CROSS does not want canned goods or diapers. They want cash. They will not be happy when Romney rolls in with a truck load of canned goods. He has been so busy calling FEMA and Republican Governors but he couldn't bother to call RED CROSS and asked them what they needed? If Romney had ever donated to the RED CROSS in all his life, he would have known that!
8:34 am on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Carolo, I agree. If Romney's team had done research to find out what organizations truly need, he would have found out the Reed Cross and Salvation Army and most other aid agencies DON'T WANT CANNED ITEMS. Instead, his team collected items that food he thought would look good on TV and in print media. Sadly, those donations will probably wind up in food pantries in Ohio -- not in NJ, NY, CT and other states where it is more needed.
Romney=Farce=Not ready to be POTUS!
Contact the Red Cross at www.redcross.org to see what THEY REALLY WANT, and
tell Romney to do the same!
9:17 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
@Beth: This trumps just about any other issue right now...
8:29 am on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Vote Early, Ohio!
Don't let extremist politicians try to suppress your vote! Every vote matters!
2:21 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
And Don't let extremist politicians STEP ON YOUR FLOWERS!!!
11:07 am on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Half of the fools in the world must post on this blog-----fortunately, folks with brains and a little common sense will prevail. After next Tuesday, you all will be able to tell us just how much you miss Oblamo. Sorry, but it needs to be said.
2:00 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
which group are you in ? the fools or the brains and common sense ? there are people posting on here offering opinions and facts to support them. it is inappropriate to refer to your neighbors as fools. the high horse you pontificate from may result in a long fall on election day. not sorry, it needs to be said.
2:26 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
11:07 am on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Half of the fools in the world must post on this blog-
and yet you include yourself in your silly comment by posting that brainbuster
2:22 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Ed, I prefer to let posts like Victor Monney's just hang out there in the ethos. He wrote nothing substantive to even respond to. So much for brains and common sense, huh?
2:29 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
LOL, good one Kim L.. At least spam has substance.
