Christie Campaigns For Romney In Ohio

'Un-employ' Obama! Shouted one of the estimated 12,000 people who turned out to either support or protest the Republican presidential candidate.

Thousands of Ohioans turned out to see Gov. Chris Christie stump Tuesday for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Cuyahoga Falls.

Ohio has become a revolving door for presidential candidates because it is traditionally considered a swing state. President Obama campaigned at Ohio State University Tuesday just hours before Romney's evening stop in Cuyahoga Falls.

WATCH: Crowd Roars Over Romney's 5-Point Plan

"Ohio, are you ready to get the job done?" asked New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who joined Romney on Tuesday.

More Americans like Romney this week, but he still isn't as popular as Obama nationally, according to a ABC/Washington Post poll. Of those polled, 47 percent said they liked Romney but 55 percent liked Obama -- numbers for both candidates went up after the debates, reported Huffington Post

"People at Obama rallies keep saying four more years," said Romney when he hit the stage at about 8 p.m. "They should be saying four more weeks!"

'Leave teacher unions behind'

In addition to talking about the national debt, Romney also touched on international trade and teachers unions. "I will make sure I put the kids, the parents and teachers first and leave the teacher unions behind," he said.

He repeated his promise to repeal Obamacare as well.

Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Robart was first in a long line of Ohio Republicans to introduce Romney. "Under Mitt Romney, the rich, the middle and the poor will rise to the betterment of their families," Robart said.

"In 28 days, we're going to have to make the biggest decision of not only our lifetime, but our country's lifetime," said Congressman Jim Renacci.

Other Romney supporters were just as enthusiastic.

"I'm here to support Mitt to make sure we don't become another socialist state like Greek or Spain," said Art Woodard of Mayfield Heights.

'Confidence, charisma'

Stephen Troyer drove from Salem, OH to support Romney because of his pro-life and same-sex marriage views. "This election centers around moral issues," Troyer said.

Norman Brague, of Wadsworth, likes Mitt's "confidence, charisma and hard-line leadership qualities."

Pearl Doherty of Cleveland, and Rita Andrich of Medina, support Romney because they say "his plans align with God's."

At the same time, a contingent of protesters rallied against Romney's views on same sex marriage.

Others showed up to support public television in response to Romney's stated intent to stop giving money to public television.

Mitt Romney set up shell companies in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to avoid U.S. taxes.
Art Elmers October 14, 2012 at 05:31 PM
And if he did is this illegal? The US tax code makes it beneficial for money made overseas to stay there. As I understand it, if you bring any of those profits back into the US you pay taxes on all of it. There has been bi-partisan support in Congress to allow all or some of these profits (in the trillions of dollars) back into the US without having to pay taxes on the total made overseas. And keep in mind these companies have had to pay corporate taxes on profits in the countries in which they were made. You keep talking about what Romney has done as if it is illegal. Also, the IRS knows how much is deposited in Swiss Bank Accounts and I am sure if Romney was not declaring them we would know. So what is your point?

Wasn't it Bush who took the most vacation time of any president? Do you have any backing for your allegations, and any comparisons to, say, Bush, Reagan, or Other Bush?
Keith Best October 14, 2012 at 06:15 PM
@David Zatz-- It was GW Bush who suspended playing golf with a war going on. Obama has played over 100 rounds but doesn't have the time to visit with world leaders one-on-one like Netanyahu.
David Zatz October 14, 2012 at 06:51 PM
@Keith -- I see you are forgetting about George W. Bush refusing to give up his photo-opp when the terrorists attacked on 9/11. Had he actually taken leadership at that point, if only to delegate power to a general, it's possible the terrorists would have been shot out of the air, limiting their destruction to the passengers on-board, who died anyway. I would like to see a reference for your claims, too. Bush started the Iraq war fairly early in his presidency, and still took more vacation time.

Obama Leads Ohio By 5

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) inaccurately claimed that unemployment is higher now than when President Obama took office on ABC 'This Week'. JAKE TAPPER: This has been weak economic recovery, without question, but it is a recovery, and unemployment is going down, as a factual matter. Why would Congressman Ryan, in defiance of facts, suggest otherwise? PORTMAN: I think that what he was saying is the truth, which is, unemployment's higher today than when the president took office. And you know, unfortunately, in the meantime, we’ve created net zero jobs, Jake. The unemployment rate last month ticked down to 7.8 percent -- the same as it was in Jan. 2009 when the economy was collapsing. Watch the video, via Think Progress.

Obama leads Romney 59-31 percent among early voters, reports The Huffington Post. The poll by Reuters/Ipsos was compiled in recent weeks. The sample size of early voters is relatively small for the poll, but the Democrat’s margin is still well above what the credibility interval is (which is 10 percentage points).

you mean Romney gave 500 billion dollars to Solyndra, a 'GREEN ' company that went belly up with taxpayers money?
Jack B Goode October 14, 2012 at 10:50 PM

I have heard him say 1. he will raise taxes 2. he will lower taxes..is he saying just anything to be reelected or is he really Superman? last challenge, please do this without mentioning Romney's name.

There can be no doubt that Obama is going to win in November. But the idea of voting for either of these two partisan hacks is revolting. Gary Johnson all the way!

Or they choose to ignore people who regurgiate points that they do not think up or understand. Some bloggers merely parrot someone who shares their political view. The people who ignore them are capable of having thoughts and ideas. They choose to ignore these non-thinking people who made up their minds 4 years ago about who they will vote for inthe 2012. Nothing Obama did or didn't do would change the minds of people who blog in this manner, they would just put a positive spin on it. Nothing Romney or Ryan said or didn't say would change their minds. They would not evaluate it or consider it, they would just put a negative spin on it. I am not sure if you are in that category, but it is obvious that some others who post in this blog are.

Mitt Romney Cancels On ‘The View’ Mitt Romney will not appear with his wife on “The View” this week, the daytime talk show announced on Monday.
GJ October 15, 2012 at 07:32 PM
to me it's not a question of legal but it shows a persons chacter, and character is something very important to me for president of the united states. its not illegal for a man to call a women an offensive name, however i will not have respect for that man. taking advantage of the tax system is not illegal and some will say it makes you a good businessman. however i also think it shows greed and does not help america. if a ceo ships jobs over seas so he can make $16 million that year instead of $12 million and keep hundreds of jobs in america to me that is greedy and unpatriotic. however if asked id have to say he is a good businessman because he made the most money he could. id rather my president have character and do whats best for america and not just whats best for his personal wealh.
Roger Long October 15, 2012 at 07:46 PM
Romney has self respect. He doesn't need to appear that liberal freak show to describe himself as "eye candy" like this idiot we have in office. When that jackass leaves the white house, he will probably have a reality show. What a disgrace Obama is to the United States.
XJS October 15, 2012 at 07:57 PM
Conversely- The CEO ultimately answers to the shareholders in the company. If the CEO of the company I invest in squanders the opportunity to make money and increase my stock value, I will sell the stock and buy elsewhere. Many people feel likewise. If they all sell, the company's ability to raise money goes away. Without the ability to raise money, they have to take loans and that costs money (interest). Then the company is sick. And it fails. And no one has a job.
GJ October 15, 2012 at 08:16 PM
so you saying everyone should be ok with shipping jobs to sweat shops over seas since it makes the most profit? even if romney lowers tax rates for "job creators" we will still not be able to get labor as cheap as places like china, so companies looking for the most profit will still send there jobs over sea.
BellairBerdan October 15, 2012 at 08:28 PM
Did he have no self respect when he booked his appearance? Is this another etcha sketch moment with his evolving views? If Obama gets a reality show I hopes it's a fancy once where he beats fish to death with sticks, like Sarah Palin had!
Roger Long October 15, 2012 at 08:46 PM

BellairBerdan October 15, 2012 at 09:32 PM
Gotta respect a man that goes back on his word....or do you?
XJS October 15, 2012 at 10:00 PM
GJ there's no clear answer. But I would try to find ways to make having a business here more attractive. Regardless, in the case of romney - I don't think paying more than you owe in taxes is smart. And I'd never vote for a dumb guy. And when it comes to moving his company overseas, if that saves money, again, I don't have a problem. Call upon your legislator to close tax loop holes and bring the jobs home.
