Mitt Romney to Visit Bucks County Sunday

The Morning Call reported Thursday night that Mitt Romney is planning a visit to Shady Brook Farm in Lower Makefield on Sunday.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will visit Bucks County just two days before Election Day, The Morning Call reported Thursday night.

Romney will hold a rally at Shady Brook Farm Sunday beginning at 5:30 p.m. Shady Brook Farm is at located 931 Stony Hill Road, Yardley. (Use Morrisville in your GPS.) Tickets for the Romney rally are free and can be obtained by clicking this link.

Reporter Colby Itkowitz of The Morning Call's Washington, D.C. bureau wrote the visit is "the strongest evidence yet of Romney making a last-second play for the state."

"Until now, Romney largely has ignored Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral college votes on the belief that the Democrat-leaning state could not be swayed. Fresh polls have shown the race tightening," Itkowitz reported.

As of Thursday night, the Real Clear Politics polling average had President Barack Obama leading Romney 49 to 44 in Pennsylvania.

Mike Shortall Sr November 03, 2012 at 07:45 PM
I can spell though.
Mike Shortall Sr November 03, 2012 at 07:55 PM
Unemployment 7.9% ,,, up once again after dropping to 7.8% in September ... 12.3 million out of work, up from 12.1 in Sept ... 14% unemployment among African Americans, 7% for women, 10% for Hispanics ... National debt increased from $10 trillion to $16 trillion (60% increase), and could go as high as $25 trillion with another four years of ObamaSpend ... But yeah, let's talk instead about Mitt Romney's religion ...
Jamie Jenn November 03, 2012 at 08:22 PM
What will the cry baby democrats say when Romney wins? The sore loser, I will guess, will be Obama and his classless wife!
Al Angello November 03, 2012 at 08:29 PM
Mike Shortall If you don't want to talk about his cult religion. Let's talk about how Romney hasn't got a chance to win Instead of my inability to spell. Don't be a cheap shot artist.
Al Angello November 03, 2012 at 08:31 PM
Jamie Don't confuse a celebration for crying. The election is in the bag for the good guys again.

Carpetbagger coming to town. He'll get his clock cleaned on Tuesday. Then he can head to the Caymans to count his cash stash and CRY in his chocolate milk.
James Derstine November 03, 2012 at 10:29 PM
I think it will remain a plutocracy, John Q. I don't think the country has been truly democratic in a long time.
Jack Minster November 03, 2012 at 10:44 PM
The first thing Obama will do is seal all State Department documents and live video stream recordings to his Situation Room the night of the Benghazi attack, seal them for the allowable five-year period. These can then join his employment records, college transcripts, communications with his book publisher about growing up in Kenya, ACORN White House guest list, clients while a Chicago lawyer, etc. Executive privilege! Tiz good to be the King.
Tim Lewis November 04, 2012 at 01:35 AM
But Jack, didn't you get the memo? This is the most open and transparent administration in history!
Jack Minster November 04, 2012 at 01:56 AM
Oh I did get the memo in 2008, Tim. It caused a little switch to trip in my head; to get off my ass, knock on 1000 doors, and get myself elected to the Republican Committee so I could give my all to making sure I never get such a memo again. I represent the new improved GOP. JFK died half a year after I was born, so I don't remember him. But I remember Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, HW Bush, Clinton, and GW. Reading historians dissect their every move, reading their own memoirs and books written about them. What will historians say about Obama? What positives? I can find only one. He proved that with the right timing and some hard work, a-n-y-b-o-d-y can become U.S. President regardless of race, religion, military and business and government and life experience. Eat that, conspiracy theorists. There really isn't a Skull & Crossbones-Freemason-Knights Templar secret group beneath the Matrix pulling all the strings. He proved it's just a job. Even without qualifications you too can earn this position if you want it badly enough and can sell. Mitt and Paul are uber qualified. I believe they'll win and perform well in the job.
Andy Camp November 04, 2012 at 02:54 AM
AWESOME Marylou....Hopefully you shut all the other Obama idiots up!
Andy Camp November 04, 2012 at 02:59 AM
So true Jack! So many freeloading Jack weeds out there that people,like you and I are paying for! Obama will go down as by far the worst President in history.
Tim Lewis November 04, 2012 at 03:48 AM
Congratulations on your election and hard work. All of the memos on Obama are nothing but illusion; may this be the end of them.
Al Angello November 04, 2012 at 03:48 AM
Come on guys if the president was that bad the American people would elect Willard Romney, but as you can see Romney is loosing in all the swing states. Your man is about to get an historic butt kicking.
Tim Lewis November 04, 2012 at 03:56 AM
Sadly, Al, too many people buy the crap they see on TV and don't think for themselves. The image of Romney that the media pushes has people scared of the alternative. Fortunately, most people saw through the crap during the debates and the poll numbers went up. Unfortunately, the media knows people have a short attention span. Fortunately, I can't see, though, where he is losing many of the swing states at all, with even PA being a dead even toss up coming down tp who is better at GOTV efforts. Obama isn't just bad, he is the worst. I am not one of those who say he is evil or incompetent, but his policies are simply destructive.
Jack Minster November 04, 2012 at 03:59 AM
Really Al? The Washington Post published a story this evening headlined “Democrats in deep-blue Pa. voice confidence – and some nervousness.” A better title for the piece would have been, “Democrats in Pa voice nervousness – and some confidence,” the story focuses on the Democrat outlook in Pennsylvania – particularly the Philly suburbs – using Montgo as a barometer for the state. “Having Romney come here, does it mean we are risk?” asked Allyson Schwartz, a Democratic congresswoman seeking her fifth term. “I’m nervous,” said Shirley Currie, a longtime local Democratic leader. “Did you hear that new Romney radio ad? It’s good.” Commissioner Josh Shapiro: “I really don’t think this race has changed that much,” he (Shapiro) said. Citing Romney’s attempt to court moderates and independents, he said, “He has extreme positions on choice, and on gay marriage, and there is vast regional distaste for that here, including with moderate Republican women. I don’t see him catching fire in the suburbs, and if you don't catch fire here” in the four counties ringing Philadelphia, with their third of the total state vote, “you don’t win.” Shapiro’s comments demonstrate he fundamentally doesn’t understand that this election is all about Obama’s failed economic policies versus Mitt Romney’s plan for economic growth, new jobs and renewed prosperity. We Republican leaders know Mitt Romney has caught “fire in the suburbs.” :-)

Good link, Bill. Maybe the Obama historians a year from now can start there. http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/03/opinion/stanley-chick-fil-a/index.html http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/02/chick-fil-a-appreciation-day-sets-record-restaurant-chain-says/ Is Chick-Fil-A's massive turnout a preview of Tuesday? Are the once sleeping conservative army roused from their complacent stupor ready for their voices to be heard? Will the 23 million Christian Americans who sat for McCain-Palin stand for Romney-Ryan?
Mike Shortall Sr November 04, 2012 at 06:50 AM
uh, Al ... Who said this: "Do you really believe that the sky is falling????? LOL You sound to me like a sore looser (sic) .." Who's the "cheap shot artist"? Please ...
Gifford Cross November 04, 2012 at 01:30 PM
Al Cross If he is the loser, then Pa will be the real loser. Think about it, do you want to follow the footsteps of other governments that go Socialist.
Josephine November 04, 2012 at 02:08 PM
For love of country pennsylvanians for Romney/Ryan>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Al Angello November 04, 2012 at 02:25 PM
On Wednesday morning all of you Romney supporters will disappear, because there are no swing state polls that put Mr Romney ahead.
Jack Minster November 04, 2012 at 02:49 PM
Early voting results give Mitt Romney a boost as more Republicans turn out to cast their ballot Over eight million Americans have already voted ahead of November 6th general election Mitt Romney has improved on 2008 Republican figures for early votes cast President Obama appears to have matched his showing from four years ago Team Romney is not worried as the early voter lead for Obama is far less than it was for John McCain four years ago, knowing that voter turnout on Election Day will push Romney to a win. Obama carried Ohio in 2008 by a 250K vote. Evangelicals in Cuyahoga County alone would push Romney to a win in Ohio.
Al Angello November 04, 2012 at 03:35 PM
After the smoke clears Romney will be on a plain to the Cayman islands to count his money, and lick his wounds.
Leon GABEL November 04, 2012 at 06:47 PM
woe to America if the left has its way. the American dream will bee lost forever. yes the rich will be poorer but the poor will be poorer also. don't you get it. socialistic values decrease a persons need to make a better life for himself. that drive is what makes America great. socialism is not the answer. an old man from Poland once said "the only difference between socialism and communism is an AK47 to you head" on November 6 lead America away from that path.

Al Angello November 04, 2012 at 07:49 PM
Leon I love it when a person just opens his heart while quoting a TV commercial. Your sincerity underwhelms me.

Obama up by 3.9 in PA, in Real Clear Politics polling average, with individual polls (including the conservative leaning Rasmussen), showing as much as 5 or 6 point Obama lead in PA: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/pa/pennsylvania_romney_vs_obama-1891.html But I have to wonder what any Romney voters are thinking. Who knows Romney better than anybody? How about the state who actually voted him in before, as Governor. So let's take a moment to look at how the only state who has any working knowledge about how Romney governs, is voting... http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/ma/massachusetts_romney_vs_obama-1804.html The average of all polls, whether you believe some to be conservative or liberal leaning, still gives Obama a 20+ point lead. So my question is, why aren't more people paying attention to this? You can't shrug it off that it is MA and they always lean this way, because they voted Romney himself in as a Republican. The reality is that Romney can't even get close in this election in the only state that he has governed before, where the people actually know what you get if you vote for Romney. If he was the success that he pretends to be in MA, don't you think that he would be leading in MA or at the very least, have a close race going on there?
