Photo of the Day: "Tampa Bay Greeting"

Senator Marco Rubio, Governor Jeb Bush and US Senate Candidate Rep Connie Mack greet Mitt Romney at a rally in Tampa, Florida today

Big Number of the Day: 100

via CNN:
Romney campaign to hit the road with 100 surrogates
Mitt Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, will kick off a four-day tour starting Friday, where they'll be joined by their wives and 100 surrogates in the final days of the White House race, his campaign announced Wednesday.

The tour starts off with a rally in West Chester, Ohio, the hometown of House Speaker John Boehner. Aside from Boehner, featured guests that day include former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Sen. John McCain of Arizona.
In the four days before Election Day, the surrogates will fan out across eleven battleground states: Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Paul Ryan: "2013 Could Be a Renaissance in America"

“And I’ve got to tell you, 2013 could be a renaissance in America, in the world and in America. 2013 can be the year we get our economy growing, we start creating 12 million new jobs, we put these pro-growth policies in place and we reaffirm the American idea by electing Mitt Romney the next President of the United States.”

Mitt Romney: "It's Time To Take a New Path of Bold, Aggressive Change"

“We also have other challenges. We have some 23 million Americans that are struggling to get a good job. We also have 1 out of 6 Americans living in poverty. We have 47 million Americans on food stamps. That's what's happening here at home. Then around the world, we face challenges as well, as Iran speeds along its course to become nuclear, as we also face competition for jobs from China and other nations. We face some real challenges. And as a result of that, it is my view that we should not continue along the same path but it's time to take a new path of bold, aggressive change because the road we're on is not doing so well. Now, you probably know, as I think about what we need to do, I actually have a plan with five key steps to get this economy going and to make sure that when you graduate there'll be a job there and to get those 23 million people working and to make sure that we help people get off of food stamps because they got good jobs and good incomes. And for that to happen these five steps will create 12 million jobs. And because of those jobs, you'll see more take-home pay.”

New RNC Video: "It's Time To Vote"

Americans have a clear choice between which path they would like for the next four years: a brighter future under a Romney presidency or a repeat of the last four years under President Obama. Governor Romney's focus will be fostering job creation and he has a plan for Day One to jumpstart our economy.

The Hispanic voice has been an integral piece of the American story, and our voice will be pivotal in this important election. With Mitt Romney, Hispanics will play a leading role in the coming American resurgence.

Romney/Ryan Video: "Florida Votes Matter"

Your vote matters. Vote for religious freedom. Vote for 12 million new jobs. Vote for Mitt Romney.

Romney/Ryan Video Featuring Governor Sandoval: "Mitt Romney For Nevada"

Under President Obama, Nevada has seen the highest unemployment rate in the country and a drop of over $9,000 in median income. Mitt Romney will create jobs in Nevada with his Plan for a Stronger Middle Class because we can't afford four more years of President Obama.

With your help, Mitt Romney will make America strong again.

Romney/Ryan Video: "Crushed By Your Policies"

Four years ago, Barack Obama said building a coal-powered plant will bankrupt you. Now, 22 Pennsylvania coal facilities will close or convert. Mitt Romney will support coal and get North America energy independent.

Romney/Ryan Video: "Change At The Pump"

Update 11/1: This ad will be airing at gas stations across the country
including Florida, Iowa and Pennsylvania!

Under President Obama, gas prices have skyrocketed. We can't afford four more years of the same failed policies.

Romney/Ryan Video: "Can't Afford Another Term"

If you want to know President Obama's second term agenda, look at his first: gutting the work requirement for welfare, record unemployment, and more women in poverty than ever before. We may have made it through President Obama's first term, but our children cannot afford a second.

Mitt Romney: Our Country Needs Real Change

“This is critical time for the country. We face enormous challenges, massive debt. We face an economy that is not putting our people to work in the jobs that they need. Young people coming out of college can’t find work -- half of them can’t find work. Around the world we face a China which is going to be a major economic power – already is and will be an even stronger power down the road, has been taking a lot of jobs from people here in Ohio. We also face radical violent jihadists who are resurgent. So, we face enormous challenges and as a result this is a big election about big things. And I am very proud of the fact that our team has worked very hard to focus on what we will do to bring real change, big change to a country that badly needs it. We have a president today who has a different view about where America is. His view is that we are on the right track, that there is no need for major change. My view is that this track is the wrong course for America, that this is a turning point for America, and as a result those people in this country who want real change from day one are going to vote for Paul Ryan and myself.

Mitt Romney's Message: Please Take Care
Ann and I are keeping the people in Hurricane Sandy's path in our thoughts and prayers.

I hope that if you can, you'll reach out to your neighbors who may need help getting ready for the storm -- especially your elderly neighbors. And if you can give of your resources or time, please consider supporting your local Red Cross organization -- visit to get involved.

For safety's sake, as you and your family prepare for the storm, please be sure to bring any yard signs inside. In high winds they can be dangerous, and cause damage to homes and property.

I'm never prouder of America than when I see how we pull together in a crisis. There's nothing that we can't handle when we stand together.

Stay safe and God Bless,

via NBC:
[Paul] Ryan also discussed the storm and those in its path at the top of his remarks today.

“Look, first let me start on a slightly different note. Let’s today when we get home put in our prayers the people who are in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that’s coming. Let’s not forget those fellow Americans of ours,” Ryan told a crowd of roughly 2,000 supporters.

The Romney campaign has canceled campaign events, commercials, and fundraising appeals in states that will be impacted by Hurricane Sandy, and is instead using a campaign bus to help deliver supplies to those who will be impacted by what forecasters are predicting may be a "storm of the century."

The boisterous and optimistic Tampa Bay crowd of an estimated 15,000 provided a stark contrast to four years ago, when John McCain struggled to generate large Florida crowds in the final days of the campaign.

"When we win Florida, we win the White House," said Romney, who also campaigned on Saturday in Pensacola and Kissimmee.

Mitt Romney: "It's Time For a Big Change"

"The President's campaign is slipping because he can't find an agenda. He's been looking for it. There are only 12 days left. He hasn't had a chance to defend or to describe it to the American people in our debates. And so the American people now have to recognize that given the big challenges we have and the big election we have, it's time for a big change. And Paul Ryan and I represent a big change for America. We're going to finally tackle the problems politicians have spoken about for years but haven't been willing to deal with. We're going to finally get America strong again with an economy to compete with anyone in the world. We're going to help America get good jobs and rising take-home pay.”

'The New York Post' Endorses Mitt Romney For President

New York for Mitt!!

Read the full endorsement: For America's Future, The Only Choice

America needs more than hope. It needs leadership. That is why The Post today endorses the candidacy of Mitt Romney for president of the United States.
Americans need jobs — jobs for those trying to raise a family, jobs for those who are leaving school, jobs period!

Instead, they are about to be saddled with an unworkable health-care boondoggle that will suck hundreds of billions from a private-sector economy that could better use the cash to create — yes — more jobs!

Can Mitt Romney really turn all this around? Yes, he can.

In the debates, Americans saw a leader.

They saw a man with the experience, the temperament, the principles and the knowledge to address America’s economic woes instead of just blaming others.

Paul Ryan: Americans Saw That Mitt Romney Is Ready To Be A Great President

Romney & Ryan: We Can't Afford Four More Years of President Obama

Mitt: “I want you to know that, we can handle two more weeks of the attacks from Barack Obama, but we cannot handle four more years of what he is giving us. I mean, can you afford four more years with 23 million Americans looking for a good job? Can you afford four more years with housing prices going down and hit along the bottom? Can you afford four more years of doubling of the gasoline prices you’re paying? How about this instead, would you like to have four years where we create 12 million new jobs? How about four years where we are able to see rising take-home pay again? And, how about four years where at the end of which we get Nevada unemployment down to 6% or lower? Look, if we are going to see a real recovery and see that kind of direction, we are going to have to have real change.”

Paul: “The President has run out of ideas. That is why he is running a small campaign about small things and hoping that he can distract people from the reality in front of us. The reality is this: we can do better than this. We can get people back to work, we can get people back out of poverty back in the middle class. We can create jobs. We have so much energy in this state, in this country, let's use that energy in this state and this country and get people back to work. We have a leader with a plan to create jobs. We have a leader who is a proven job creator. At a time when we have a jobs crisis in America wouldn’t it be nice to have a job creator in the White House? Ladies and gentlemen, we don’t have to wait for four more years of the same.”

American Crossroads Video: "Not Optimal"

Restore Our Future Video: "Better"

In the last 4 years, high unemployment has become normal. Crushing debt and credit downgrades acceptable. Falling incomes typical. But these things are not inevitable. America can create the jobs we need. And leave our children better off. But we never go forward by settling for the status quo. We need to make a change. Barack Obama's economy isn't working. Demand Better.

Restore Our Future Video: "Genuinely Cares"

I volunteered to go to Iraq in 20003. I was involved in a horrible accident, which left me a double amputee. I first met Governor Romney during my recovery at Walter Reed. He took a personal interest in one soldier's story and he wanted to know how he could help. Romney worked with a charity to build special homes for severely injured veterans. The Mitt Romney I know cares deeply about people who are struggling. Mitt Romney helped make a huge difference in my life.

Crossroads GPS Video: "Mitt and David"

New Romney Video: "Highest Responsibility"

Despite what President Obama says, our Navy is smaller now than at any time since 1917. It's the highest responsibility of the President of the United States to maintain the safety of the American people. Mitt Romney will not make our future less certain by cutting our military.

New RNC Video: "Presidential"

New Romney Video: "The Clear Path"

This election is a choice between two very different paths. One is represented by President Obama with higher debt, lower take-home pay, and people struggling for work. Mitt Romney has a plan to create 12 million new jobs, get people off food stamps by getting them good jobs, and increase take-home pay.

New Romney Video: "Apology Tour"

After taking office, President Obama went on an apology tour around the world. He even said that America had dictated to other nations. Mr. President, America doesn't dictate to other nations; we have freed other nations from dictators.

Paul Ryan: Leaders Don't Run Away From Tough Problems

“We can do this. We can turn things around. We can get the economy growing. We can fix this mess in Washington. It takes leadership. Mitt Romney and I are not going to run away from these problems. We are going to run to these problems, to solve these problems, before they get out of our control. That's what leaders do. We're not going to kick the can down the road. We're going to lead. And I’ll tell you what, we're not going to spend the next four years blaming other people for our problems. We're going to take responsibility. No more excuses; no more blaming.”

Secure America Video: "The Truth About Libya - Failed Foreign Policy"

America was attacked on September 11th, 2012 by Al Qaeda at our consulate in Libya. Our consulate was burned and four Americans including our ambassador were murdered. President Obama and his administration denied it was a terrorist attack for weeks. Since then, Americans have learned that Obama and his administration knew it was an act of terror all along and chose to tell the public it was because of a Youtube video protest. It's time for Obama to tell the truth on Libya. We can't afford more apologies, excuses, and weakness.

New RNC Video: "The Obama Plan"

Inquiring Minds Want to Know >> What’s Obama's Plan for the Next Four Years?

Senator Marco Rubio: “We want to grow the economy. And I think the most startling thing that has happened here over the last month of this campaign, is the President has completely given up on outlining any sort of agenda for the future. What’s his plan for the next four years? What do the next four years look like? … Well, [Mayor Rahm Emanuel] talked about spending a lot of money and I get that. I understand that’s what he’s done the last four years, they’re going to continue to spend money on roads and bridges. We already did that one time, it was called the stimulus. $800 billion and it didn't grow the economy. What about the tax code? What about regulations? What are we going to do about the onerous impact that Obamacare is having on businesses all across the country and on individuals that are on the verge of losing their coverage they like and the small businesses that are moving people to part-time status to avoid the impact that the healthcare law is going to have on them. It’s just startling that the President, two weeks from Election Day, has given up on an outlining a plan to govern this country for the next four years.” 

Across "Meet the Press," "Face the Nation," "This Week," and the "Chris Matthews Show," the question remains the same.... Where is Pres. Obama's plan for a second term?

New RNC Video: "Not Fixed"

"Bill Clinton agrees with Governor Romney that President Obama has not fixed the economy--and he's right," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "Under this president, too many middle class families are struggling to put food on the table, gas in the car, and send their kids to college. The worst part is this president admitted at Tuesday's debate that he has given up on jobs coming back. America deserves better than a president who can't fix the economy and has given up trying."

Mitt Romney Video: "Sarah"

Barack Obama's attacks against Mitt Romney's record on contraception and abortion are simply not true. These issues are important to women like Sarah. But Mitt understands that women are also concerned about the debt our children will be left with. We can't afford four more years.

Video: Former Massachusetts Lt Governor Kerry Healey: Mitt Romney Championed Women In His Administration

“My personal experience has obviously been extraordinary. Governor Romney is a great leader, and he also creates a work environment which is enormously friendly, it's family friendly, it's professional. It’s everything that women in the workforce could hope for. But I also think this is so ironic because it's giving us an opportunity to talk about one of the great strengths of Governor Romney during his time in office which was that he did want to bring women’s voices into government. That he did have half of the women in his top appointed positions, right there with him; his chief of staff was a woman. Obviously he asked me to run with him. I am clearly a female, and his top policy adviser was also female in addition to all the cabinet secretaries he brought forward.”

“Governor Romney went way beyond just equal pay for equal work. Governor Romney went out and aggressively championed, mentored women, put them in leadership positions again and again throughout his time in government, and just there are so few political leaders, male or female who bothered to do that. In the first year after we were in office there was a survey that he mentioned by SUNY Albany that looked how governors were putting women in different positions in their administrations and Governor Romney’s Administration was the best in the country in terms of advancing women. I just think the proof is in the pudding, and again, the Obama Administration is just trying to create a distraction here away from the horrible economic failures of his last four years.”

Bill Clinton at a campaign event in Ohio says that it is true that the economy is not fixed under Obama (October 18, 2012).

Mitt Romney: President Obama Can't Defend His Failed Record

“Now, I have to be honest with you. I love these debates. You know, these things are great and I think it's interesting that the President still doesn't have an agenda for a second term. Don't you think that it's time for him to finally put together a vision of what he'd do in the next four years if he were elected? I mean, he's got to come up with that over this weekend because there's only one debate left on Monday. And I just think the American people had expected that the President of the United States would be able to describe what he's going to do in the next four years, but he can't. He can't even explain what he's done in the last four years. I mean, he's spends most of his time trying to talk about how my plan won't work. Well, what about his plan? We know his plan has not worked. And last night there were a lot of people asking questions, and I think they deserve some answers on a number of fronts.”

Paul Ryan: We Need Proactive, Pro-Growth Solutions To Get Our Economy Turned Around

“And look at where we are right now: 23 million Americans struggling to find work. You know, we had a discussion about how women are faring in this economy last night. Five-and-a-half million women are still struggling for work in this economy. A half-million women more are unemployed today than when President Obama was sworn in. Twenty-six million women are trapped in poverty today. That's the highest rate in 17 years. We need to get people back to work. We need to get this economy turned around. The American idea is there. It hasn't gone away. But we have the wrong people and the wrong policies in place, and if we clear the way and go forward with the proactive, pro-growth solutions in the agenda that Mitt Romney is talking about, we will get people back to work. We will get people out of poverty, back in the middle class, we'll get back onto reaching their vision of the American dream.”

New York For Mitt!!!

Read the full endorsement: Romney for President

The United States simply cannot afford another four years of weak leadership. The genius of American capitalism and the moral authority of American foreign policy must be restored.

Mitt Romney has a plan to do both. He has the credentials to restore the economy and to defend American values in a hostile world. He has the skills to help create jobs and a brighter future for our country.

This election is a true turning point for the next generation. Mitt Romney is the change the nation needs. And he is the change New York needs.

FYI: The paper endorsed Obama in 2008.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan know that we just can't keep spending money that we don't have. Our country is heading in the wrong direction. We need serious leadership to fix these problems and get this country back on track.

In America, we consider religious liberty our "first freedom." That's because there is no constitutional guarantee more precious than our right to the free exercise of religion. As Catholics, we see our faith as more than an individual right. We see it as a vital part of our community.

Romney/Ryan Video: "Who Shares Your Values?"

Who shares your values? President Obama has gone too far by imposing new mandates on religious organizations, forcing them to go against their own faith. Mitt Romney believes that's wrong.

Mitt Romney: Vice President Biden Doubled Down On Denial

“Now, by the way, yesterday I raised some questions about Benghazi and the tragedy that occurred there. And there were more questions that came out of last night because the Vice President directly contradicted the sworn testimony of State Department officials. He’s doubling down on denial. And we need to understand exactly what happened as opposed to just have people brush this aside. When the Vice President of the United States directly contradicts the testimony—sworn testimony—of State Department officials, American citizens have a right to know just what's going on. And we're going to find out. And this is a time for us to make sure we do find out.”

New Radio Ad From Team Romney: "No Laughing Matter"

Last night, Vice President Joe Biden said “We don’t need more M1 tanks.” This would take away one of the most vital weapons in our military arsenal – made in Ohio – and the Obama budget would shut down the only M1 tank plant in the country. The Obama-Biden plan to cut our defense budget will impact jobs in Ohio and impact our country’s national security and it is one more reason Ohio can’t afford four more years of this administration.

Team Romney Responds to Team Obama's Charge Libya Only An Issue Because of Romney & Ryan

On CNN this afternoon, Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter said that the only reason the terrorist strike in Libya is an issue is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Andrea Saul, Romney Campaign National Press Secretary, response to the Obama campaign’s comments on the terrorist attack in Libya:

“President Obama’s campaign today said that Libya is only an issue because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. They’re wrong. The reason it is an issue is because, for the first time since 1979, an American ambassador was assassinated and President Obama’s foreign policy strategy of ‘leading from behind’ is failing. This administration has continually misled the American public about what happened in Benghazi and, rather than be truthful about the sequence of events, has instead skirted responsibility and dodged questions. The American people deserve straight answers about this tragic event and a president who can provide leadership, not excuses.”

I wonder what she thinks about Stephanie Cutter's comments:

via CNN:
Sean Smith was one of four Americans killed during the attack on U.S. buildings in Benghazi, Libya last month. He was killed in the consulate compound. Anderson spoke to his mother, Pat Smith, who says she "begged" for answers about the assault and how Sean died. She says she hasn’t received any details, which were promised to her by Pres. Obama, Secretary of State Clinton, and Vice President Biden.

Mitt Romney: We Can't Afford Four More Years Of High Gas Prices

“I don't think you can afford another doubling of gasoline prices under Barack Obama. I mean, since he's been president, the price of gasoline has doubled, and that's happened in part because the President has not taken advantage of our energy. When I become president, we're going to double the number of permits on federal lands and federal waters for drilling, make sure that we can get more oil and gas and use our coal and our nuclear, renewables. We're going to have an energy abundance in America and keep our prices more moderate.”

New Romney/Ryan Video: "Helping The Middle Class"

The choice between President Obama and Mitt Romney is clear. Under the President's policies, middle-income Americans have been buried. Mitt Romney will bring tax rates down and get Americans working again.

Mitt Romney: It's Time For A President Who Talks About Saving America's Future

“About 23 million Americans, still looking for a good job. You've got college graduates this year, came out last spring, who are still looking for work. About half the college graduates that came out couldn't find a job or a college-level job. Food stamps—when the president took office, 32 million people on food stamps. Now there are 47 million people on food stamps. I mean, these are these are tough times with real serious issues. So you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving Big Bird. I actually think we need to have a president who talks about saving the American people and saving good jobs and saving our future and also saving the family farm.

Mitt Romney: The World Needs American Leadership

“Our friends and allies across the globe don’t want less American leadership. They want more — more of our moral support, more of our security cooperation, more of our trade, more of our assistance in building free societies and thriving economies. So many people across the world still look to America as the best hope of humankind. So many people still have faith in America. We must show them that we still have faith in ourselves; that we have the will and the wisdom to revive our stagnant economy, to roll back our unsustainable debt, to reform our government, to reverse the catastrophic cuts now threatening our national defense, to renew the sources of our great power and to lead the course of human events.”
