Romney votes in Massachusetts

Belmont, Massachusetts (CNN) - It took Mitt and Ann Romney about three minutes to cast their Election Day votes at a Belmont, Massachusetts polling place Tuesday.

The couple - Romney dressed in a blazer and slacks and his wife, Ann, in a long blue coat, black boots and pearl necklace - filled out their ballots in voting adjoining voting booths at the Beech St. Center.

Afterward, Romney responded to reporters' questions about the crucial swing state of Ohio, which he will visit in a late-addition to his campaign schedule today.

"I feel great about Ohio," he said.

Romney kissed his wife goodbye and headed off to the airport to board his campaign charter for the trip to Ohio and Pennsylvania.

    Are the Panthers intimidating because they are taking 'actual' physical action against voters,or are they intimidating because they are African American and just 'there'.

    I'm not too clear on what you're saying.

    I'm betting Americans are smarter than attack politics and class warfare. [DELETED FOR CONTENT]. Americans win today. 100% of them.
    I agree. I'm sure voters are tired of the four years of relentless attack politics coming out of the right wing.

    @critical thinking.......a president who never had to work hard? As opposed to Romney, who was born into wealth and had the road cleared for him every step of the way? Do you really believe all the stuff you post in here, or are you just messing with us?

    Maybe, but Obama is going the lose the entire country that knows him even better. If an incumbent goes into election day tied in the polls, chances are he starts the next day as a Lame Duck.

    if Romney wins – will he show us his Mormon underwear?

    we are having a good laugh up here in Canada – can't believe faith comes down to underwear – a real game changer

    think of the foolball and baseball players who will soon be wearing it – they won't need a uniform any more – just put a number on their underwear

    Don't let wealth, greed, and political ambition at any cost win. Being a businessman doesn't help run a country. When you are affected by whichever way the wind blows for your own ambition, when you say anything because your father lost and you want to redeem him, that is not a leader. Mitt your just upset because your father told the truth about being brainwashed and you can't give it up. Daddy would not be proud.

    Black Panthers?? Where?? It's funny, these people yelling about Black Panthers. I have lived in Detroit for most of my life and have voted in every election since 1984 and I have NEVER seen any Black Panthers ANYWHERE.

    OBAMA / BIDEN 2012!
    The only sane choice.
