Pennsylvania really in play?

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (CNN) - "Hey, Pennsylvania, you going to help us win this election?"

That question from Republican running mate Paul Ryan on Saturday was met with very loud applause from the crowd at a rally he headlined at the airport in the Keystone State's capital.

    PA to Republicans is like a Kate ‘SLADE’ bag you buy on the streets in New York City for $4.00.
    Fool’s Gold.

    We have two days until we vote. We have been courted, lambasted, put into corners and pushed forward and back. However, what we really think is never in play. The candidates do not really want to know what we think because they have decided that they already know our thoughts. Hopefully, those of us who are more moderate and who actually want a government that represents all the people will begin to express ourselves more freely. We can no longer sit on the side lines. If states are becoming more and more conservative then we will be relegated to the sidelines. We need to let our leaders know that we are a force to be reckoned with. Hopefully, we can force people to work together so we can all help this country move forward.

    No, PA is blue and always will be blue. We know that Obama got our back, and we got his. Romney on the other hand only has his own back. He doesn't care about honor, or trust, he believe money will solve everything. We as Pennsylvanians will unite to re-elect Obama. 4 more years!
    Obama/Biden 2012 Forward!

    Not so much....I believe this is a clear act of desperation on the part of the Romney campaign to put a state in play that is safe Obama.

    One turnout with Koch brother busses full of people brought in doesn't make an election. What a tool.

    Pennsylvania is always in play in Republicans' minds; the candidate is always there the weekend before Election Day. And it's consistently a foolish effort, as it is today.

    You have kids here in Pennsylvania?, let me guess, an important thing to you, is the character of the people with them, when you are not. For many, that decision is made by others, and absent duplicate money (tuition + property taxes) there is nothing you can do about it. You send your kids to the public school assigned. Good news: The strangle-hold the teachers union has had on the Democrats is beginning to weaken. Still though, they (AFT) have frustrated most local and state efforts to introduce school choice. They do this by buying your elected representatives. It’s wearisome to hear the arguments about vouchers. None succeed in hiding the raw greed. Perhaps you like your public schools. I am happy for you. Please consider others. Support for AFT funded candidates sentences other families to mediocrity, or worse? Do you children, and other peoples children a favor please. Don’t vote for candidates endorsed by the American Federation of Teachers. Look and see who endorses your candidates. Again, things are changing. Rahm Emanuel (Democrat last I checked) is fighting back. You can too.

    Is Pennsyvania really in play? No.

    Pew just released it's latest poll: Obama 50 ... Romney 47.

    As in .......... Obama +3.

    So much for the Mitt Romney has the (non exsistent) momentum meme the MSM was promoting based solely on the MSMs greed factor to gain a larger Election2012 viewership. How silly of all you GOPers to be so fooled. Guess that's why so many of you watch FOX? To get to the "truth", hun?

    It's not as if we weren't warning all of you this was going to happen one day out from election.
