Romney Coming to Shady Brook Farm Sunday

UPDATE: Friday at 10:15 a.m. Tickets for the Romney rally at Shady Brook Farm now available online. Click here for details.

UPDATE: Friday at 8 a.m. The rally is not yet listed on Mitt Romney's website, however Shady Brook Farm has confirmed it is happening.

Original story, Thursday 10:20 p.m.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will visit Bucks County just two days before Election Day, the Morning Call reported Thursday night.

Romney will hold a rally at Shady Brook Farm Sunday beginning at 5:30 p.m. Shady Brook Farm is at located 931 Stony Hill Road, Yardley. (Use Morrisville in your GPS.)

Reporter Colby Itkowitz of the Morning Call's Washington, D.C. bureau wrote the visit is "the strongest evidence yet of Romney making a last-second play for the state."

"Until now, Romney largely has ignored Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral college votes on the belief that the Democrat-leaning state could not be swayed. Fresh polls have shown the race tightening," Itkowitz reported.

As of Thursday night, the Real Clear Politics polling average had President Barack Obama leading Romney 49 to 44 in Pennsylvania.

Please don't let Obama sweep Benghazi under the rug... Lets not forget those four who were left to be slaughtered in Benghazi... Every voter needs to read this excellent article... Very well worth your time... http://spectator.org/archives/2012/11/01/benghazi-obamas-core-deceit/ These are pretty good as well: http://www.gazette.com/opinion/romney-146793-obama-benghazi.html http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/benghazigate-obamas-many-lies-about-libya/ http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/50657 http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/25/CBS-Busts-Obama--and-Itself-Hidden-60-Minutes-Clip-Proves-White-House-Lied-About-Benghazi Romney/Ryan 2012

I saw Obama yesterday claiming the new job numbers are proof that his policies are working and that we are in an economic recovery... Fact is, that is not the truth, or even close to the truth... This from a great article I just read... First, the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9% and the year-to-date monthly average of 157,000 payroll jobs is barely enough to keep up with population growth -- much less make up for the 8 million jobs lost during the Great Recession. Second, the so-called real unemployment rate (U6) remains elevated at 14.6%, albeit down from 14.7% the prior month. Similarly, the labor participation rate is at 63.8%, up from its multi-decade low but still incredibly weak. Third, average hourly earnings fell a penny in October and average hours worked fell to 34.4 from 34.5 in September. Stagnant wages means "we're not generating income," Reinhart says. "That's a problem in terms of the durability of an economic expansion, which is usually fueled by consumption. To get consumption you've got to generate income." Also, just look at your checkbook. We are paying a lot more for everything now than we did in 2008. The price of gas has doubled. At the same time, wages have gone down, and that's if you're lucky to have a job. In 2008, 25 banks went out of business. In 2012, 48 banks have gone out of business. Almost double the amount. Does that sound like recovery to you? Don't believe the Obama lies!! Romney/Ryan 2012

It should be the government's responsibility to provide heath care to those who can't afford it. It is money well spent and the right thing to do. Politicians get free health care. Education should also be free. There would be a good return on both of these investments. To offset these expenses, let's cut what we don't need such as spending money on Foolish wars. Accordingly, we should substantially reduce the defense budget and mind our own business. We have far too many bases overseas. The bottom line is that heath care and education improve lives/society while war kills people, ruins lives and drains our resources.

A country is as strong as its people and Obama has done what it takes to make our people, all of US, strong: --Heathcare--healthy people learn better, work harder, provides work flexibility, reduces overall costs (check inflation & the mass. experiment) and need less healthcare saving money and missed days from work & school --Security--protecting our borders protecting us from & reacting to national emergencies (FEMA), and getting Bin Laden --Smart stimulation-- saving the Automotive Industry, Middle Class Tax Cuts --Family protections--Ledbetter Fair Pay Act--Healthy Families Act--protecting Roe v. Wade I could go on, but I agree with the writer above, that at this point it is unlkely to change one's views either way over the coming days..I know in my head and my heart Obama should and will win.. Please all vote.. express your opinion respectfully...disagree with the candidates but DO NOT insult one another, as no matter who wins, we can only get better together.... one Country... go US
Ken November 03, 2012 at 04:33 PM
As for government pay, most public sector employees receive less pay than their counterparts, but do so for security, their beliefs, or just the opportunity...for example, a government lawyer, after 15 years may make $60-$75,000.... a private attorney makes hundrends of thousands of dollars with only a few years experience... how much do the 1% make, the presidents of big businesses and wall street....MILLIONS a year...the government does not pay anyone millions of dollars a year.

How is education free? Don't we pay property taxes high ones at that for it? Go ahead and reduce the defense budget. where will those jobs and people affected go to work? Why didn't Obama and Reid and Pelosi do it if they think it's the right answer? You gonna call them out on not doing anything they said they would You are a classic gimmee person. Nothing is free. in fact, when your country irresponsibly and unpatrioticly borrows $20 trillion dollars to supposedly give out free goods and services, nothing could be further from the truth. We are living on borrowed time as much as borrowed money. The bills have come do. time to Live within our means!!! If you can't afford something don't spend the money. It's not my job to pay for you. it's my job to pay for my family. If i have some leftover, I will help someone else. Problem these days is there is not enough for me let alone to help you.
I:o November 03, 2012 at 05:09 PM
Ken can you explain how healthcare make people healthier??? Exercise and diet do and they don't cost me anything else. I can do it all by myself if I choose. Who would pay for the middle class tax cuts you speak of? What are they exactly? Are you saying lower the rates below where they are today or is your idea of a cut leaving the current rates in place? Why does MSNBC pay female anchors less than male anchors? Is that government's job? Why do NBA players make more than WNBA players? Same job right? I agree with you about voting and being respectful. Thanks If only Obama felt the same way and would stop being such a whiny, petulant fake President. If you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.” – Barack Obama

Please show some stats. It is not true. the total compensation packages of public employees is far higher. Salary + pensions + healthcare = Pay!! What do you think the avg comp package for a public employee in Northampton is versus avg pay of the public there? And please don't compare professionals that control how much they earn by how much they produce. There are lots of deadbeat lawyers and Democrat lobbyists at the top making millions. Lawyers are Democrats bread and butter base. Liberal hollywood stars and sports stars make 10-20 million a year! Leno and Letterman make $15 million plus. Lots of people make lots of money. They also happen to pay most of the taxes
I:o November 03, 2012 at 05:28 PM
BTW according to IRS data, making over $66k a year puts you in top 25% of all people....and that top 25% pays 87% of all federal income tax.

100,000 to attend Bucks county rally!!!! O gotta GO!
Decided November 03, 2012 at 09:25 PM
l:o you are repeating the typical talking points that can be heard on Fox news. You missed my point on education. I did not say it is free: I said it should be free. As an experienced investment person, I can tell you that return on investment is critical. As a country, we have spent money very foolishly over the past decade and this has to stop. Spending money on healthcare and education is productive while spending money on war and tax cuts is not. The cost of war goes well beyond the war. It ruins the lives of families and we have to pay for it for the rest of the soldiers lives. The politicians who support a big military should send their own kids to fight. Romney, the big military guy, never served and now he wants to talk tough when it comes to foreign affairs.
Obama failed November 03, 2012 at 09:27 PM
Oh should be free....how would you make it free? How does one spend money on tax cuts exactly? You are about as smart as obama
Decided November 04, 2012 at 12:14 AM
Obama Failed, Cutting taxes reduces revenue and has a similar effect. Now Obama is not smart even though he graduated Harvard Law School and was the President of the Harvard Law Review...
BAG November 04, 2012 at 12:58 PM
Hey TP just ask your mom what BAG stands for -- TEA BAG! I heard Obama is going to appoint Gov Christy to head of FEMA in his second term.

I would rather have hot air than BULLSHIT
Gerard November 04, 2012 at 11:46 PM
That is defamation......try to say something intelligent.
Gerard November 04, 2012 at 11:49 PM
Patty...........Shady? Really???? He does not hide around a cloak of secrecy like obama.
Gerard November 04, 2012 at 11:52 PM
@Safe in Doylestown Romney may be wealthy, but don't hold that against him. Who do you think started this country anyway.....
Gerard November 04, 2012 at 11:56 PM
Let's quote the NYT, liberal manifesto and the Communist voice of reason. We know where your heart is....
Gerard November 04, 2012 at 11:57 PM
Depression around the corner.....mark your calendar!
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:00 AM
@Ed We were the greatest nation, and we are falling like Rome.....Thanks to our political system. Both parties are disgraceful, but at least Romney can offer us an alternative.
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:06 AM
As an Independent I agree and will vote with the lesser of two evils. I am only sorry Mitt didn't run on another ticket so he could clearly outline his positions without alienating the far right.
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:11 AM
That's an inane statement, and shows how you can't present a logical argument. From the depth of an extraordinary recession until now? Come on....... I want to know if you are going to be just as outspoken when Obama leads us into depression with his reckless spending.
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:13 AM
Are you on disability? Serious mental issues?
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:16 AM
None of those are free, Decided but uninformed. And if you want to spend some time being productive, address the issue of Political Health Care and why they do not fall under Obamacare.
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:18 AM
I agree, but look in the mirror. You are so blinded by your party affiliation that you can't see what is happening around you. DO YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE THE ECONOMY IS GETTING BETTER?
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:20 AM
They almost all retire as millionaires Ken, don't kid yourself. The system is broken, and needs to be fixed. Obama is decidedly not the answer.
Gerard November 05, 2012 at 12:21 AM
Why won't he release his records if he is so smart?
Ken November 05, 2012 at 01:23 AM
This has gotten well-beyond any semblance of open, honest discussion... personal attacks on other citizens is unacceptable... assuming citizens are not lawyers when discussing legal issues ..or suggesting others are mentally ill is more of the same ... a little civility would go a long way.

How ill education be free? We pay taxes to pay for the schools, teacher salaries and benefits. How will government get money so that schools can be "free"? Magic unicorn? How do you think things WORK??
