He next flies to Cleveland for a campaign stop, then later heads to Richmond, Virginia. Tuesday night he travels back to Boston for the Romney campaign watch party.

    Paul Ryan is going to make a GREAT VP. Romney and Ryan know what to do to get this country going again and to fix the huge financial problems facing this country, especially after 4 years of out of control spending and deficits adding another $5 TRILLION to our debt. Obama and the Democrats have dug this country far deeper into the whole, especially with their failed economic policies that have gotten us no jobs and barely any GDP growth. The country cannot withstand another 4 years of it so I hope the American people do the right thing today and give Obama his walking papers. If not, we are all screwed.

    All one needs to know is that Ryan and Akin worked together one women's issues. Time to go vote.

    Ha, voting even though his vote is a wash in Wis... I guess he can always go back to fighting taxes on arrows and renaming post offices...

    I know Obama is going to win the electoral college vote and when that happens I hope he will make the country a better place for every American. The reality is, he won't make any positive changes because 1) he has burned all his bridges and not Republicans will want to work with him; 2) his drop in popularity means that even some Democrats in precarious positions will be wary of working with him; 3) he has proven to be an extremely weak and ineffective leader. Buyer's remorse setting in in about 76 days.

    Vote for Mitt if you think the rich should pay less that 14%. They are the job creators. They will happily employ you as a servant in their mansions if you can just let them pay less taxes.They know more than the rest of us so just trust them.

    No woman who cares about her ability to earn a living or determine her own plan for having children (granted they are a gift from God, but God gives us a brain!) will vote for Romney/Ryan. I voted for Obama and I am confident my daughter will also. Women are NOT a minority group!

    The nation is in real trouble if this intellectual imposter is allowed to hold any elected seat in Washington. Paul Ryan is part of the problem in Washington, not a solution!

    Ryan is more capable than Obama and Biden together.

    Outsider.92 - Vote for Mitt if you think the rich should pay less that 14%.
    These are capitals gains rates that have always been lower, even when Clinton was president. I though tall you Obama clones were for going back to the tax rates in the 90's?

    BTW these lower rates are also the rates that old retired people pay on their investments. Have you explain to all those retired people that you want to jack up their taxes? Yeah, didn't think so.

    Are you referring to Jayz or Bruce Springsteen? Are those the rich job creators you are referring to? How many servants do they have?

    I think it's telling that the three states that know Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan best – Mitt's home states of Massachusetts and Michigan, and Ryan's home state of Wisconsin – are all likely to go for Obama.
