Romney/Ryan to campaign in Florida together Friday

(CNN) – Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will campaign together in Florida Friday following this week's Republican National Convention, according to a release by the campaign Tuesday.

Romney and Ryan will be officially entered into nomination on Thursday at the Republican Convention in Tampa. On Friday, the newly elected duo will attend a convention farewell victory rally at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, Florida.

The Republican National Convention officially began Monday but was scheduled to immediately recess due to severe weather conditions. Tuesday marked the first full day of activities.

    I hope there is a HUGE turnout of seniors. It will be a hot mess of a mob. The Kill Medicare Kid right there along side the Sheriff of Nothingham ready to tax grandma and grandpa just so their fat cat friends can keep their pockets full.
    By the way, ask Ryan why he considers rape as form of conception. Yes that's right, a form of conception. Don't matter that a man forced himself on you and held a gun to your head ladies, just lie back and enjoy it and raise that child that will be a constant reminder of the incident for the rest of your life.
    To you Ryan, a woman's womb is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!!!!.

    Competence and success is in their DNA. If anybody can fix this country's problems, they can. It is clear the incompetent inexperienced community organizer doesn't have a clue how to get the job done.

    Seriously people.... if you had a car problem and took your car to the mechanic 4 years ago, and still hadn't gotten the car back fixed, even though the mechanic swore up and down he could fix it, would you give him ANOTHER 4 years to fix it??? Would you believe him if he said he just couldn't get the parts, or that his wrench kept breaking, or excuse after excuse after excuse. Well Obama is that rotten mechanic. It is time to bring the car to somebody that knows what they are doing, Romney/Ryan.

    It's not a dynamic duo though. At least Batman and Robin caught criminals. Here we have a tax cheater and job terminator and the H.R 3 anti women creator. I hope we don't have to watch very akward mother/son hug at the villages.
    What a pair!!!!!

    How can they pretend that the Romney/Ryan Plan is responsible economic policy when Paul Ryan himself admits that it will balance the annual budget for another 30 years?

    How can they pretend that the Romney/Ryan Plan will save Medicare when the transition cost, which Ryan omits from his budget, is estimated to cost far more than what Ryan projects to save? In fact, if you run the numbers, the Medicare fund goes bankrupt in less than a decade because of the transition costs, which are estimated at over one trillion dollars.

    R/R ticket. Scared yet. I would feel a whole lot better if these two would give out some specifics about how they are going to fix the economy. My guess is that if they do, they won't get elected. Thanks, but I'll stay with the known Obama. If he gets a decent Congress, he will be a much better president.

    Will someone in Florida please ask these 2 if their 'drill-everywhere' energy plan includes oil rigs off the coast of Florida?

    How about continued subsidies for renewable energy in the Sunshine State? Might mean less need for oil and natural gas.

    And, mitts, why are you afraid to show your tax returns??

    Remember it was Ryan that purposely changed the Stock Act (the one about inside trader knowledge) so politicians can still make trades on insider knowledge (just via family members). It was in the original bill, he changed it. Congress had to vote twice to get it done right!!! Who's looking out for whom???

    Yes, but....

    If Samuel L. Jackson had his way Tampa would be underwater and the Republicans and the Romneys would be bloated bodies floating in the ocean. Pathetic.
    ---------------
    Bad news, YB. Samuel L. Jackson ain't running for office. Some Romney donors and official surrogates have said worse, including the candidate. If Mitt Romney had his way hispanic illegal immigrants would all "self deport" as he put it.

    1st Romney criticizes Obama on the comment about business doing well, then he himself says close to the same thing.
    2nd Now Romney has joined the birther party.
    3rd now R/R have amended their health care plan. What, the original wasn't correct? Question on the voucher: does this mean you no longer have to look for a doctor that will accept medicare? They can charge what they want? Cost increase here we come. The voucher is to help pay for private health insurance. As we all know the premiums for reasonable insurance is high. Also insurances WILL NOT cover pre-existing conditions... therefore the vouchers are useless... especially for the elderly that usually have pre-existing conditions.

    Well at least some cat food brands have gravy.

    Here is a piece of logic. John McCain states (recently) that Sarah Palin was a better choice the Romney was back in 2008. If Palin was a key reason for McCain for losing, and Palin was a better choice than Romney in a lower position, why is Romney a good choice for a higher position?

    The Two Amigos look punch happy.
    Two frat boys imbued with the certain knowledge that they will be able to hood-wink, supress, and buy their way into the White House. And that there is nothing that we can do about it.
    Prove them wrong America.
    Obama 2012. Seriously my fellow Americans.

    what I want to know is what/how Romney is going to guarantee that the banks/hedge funds never cause another meltdown like in 2007/2008? If that happens again it'll destroy the economy this time vs just putting us into a major recession. What's he going to do? If all out savings are in the bank or invested in 401K/IRAs and our SS is sitting in some mutual fund, we cannot afford another financial crisis. The 1% can handle it, we cannot. If I want to vote for R&R, I want to know what THEY WILL DO. The democrats want to try to restrict the thieves/gamblers from doing it (the Dodd-Frank bill). At least the democrats are trying, what are the republicans doing?

    -------------------

    Obama made it Ryan and everyone else's business. Obama is obsessed with a woman's womb. It is my business since we have to pay for abortion, birth control and contraceptives. If a woman pays than it is her business but when I pay I should have a saying.

    Tell that to the Brits. Paul Ryan left out the cost to transition to his VoucherCare program. Most experts estimate the cost would be over a trillion dollars over the next decade, as two parallel systems would have to be set up and running side by side as the switch is made official. That and the Ryan budget doesn't balance for 30 years. You call that competence? I call it voodoo economics.

    The Republican platform will be the Romney/Ryan platform despite what Priebus tells the common folks to think. At the very least, the platform will be what congressional Republicans will be running on and trying to legislate into law should they win.

    Stick with Obama....he has done nothing for the economy unless you want to talk about the trillion dollar stimulus gift to his union friends. And much less he won't even talk about a plan?
    A decent Congress.....we had two years of the Nancy and Harry show and the only thing they could do was use graft and bribery to pass a health care bill that does nothing to control costs! You remember the "you gotta read it to find out what's in it" bill. Yea, we need four more years to this.

    Actually we already have Senior Citizens eating cat food because they have no money with Obama or did you forget that Obama did not give them their cost-of-living in the last 3 years. How convenient you guys forget the things that don't impact your lives.

    You know what retirees in Florida are really scared of?
    Obama wants to raise the taxes that they pay on dividend income from 15% to 39.6%.

    Myviews, you miss the point. There are a throng of GOP/Tbaggers that are passing in upwards of 20 something bills all related to Personhood, that trumps a woman's right to her own healthcare. No one is saying anything about who pays for what, that is beside the point.

    Mitt and Ann don't think "those people", meaning you and me, don't need to see their taxes. I'm surprised they haven't slipped up and called us peasants yet. If Mitt wants to be president and he is already trying to avioid being transparent, what kind of president will he be?
