Mitt Romney's Son, Tagg, Campaigns in Upper Dublin

Tagg Romney made a campaign stop in Upper Dublin Township this afternoon.

Mitt Romney's oldest son, Tagg, made a campaign stop on Sunday afternoon at the Upper Dublin Township Building.

Montgomery County Republican Committee Chairman, Bob Kerns, began the afternoon by telling gathered supporters, "Do not believe the newspapers." He said the pollsters have the presidential race in Pennsylvania "dead even" and called it "a neck and neck, dead even race."

Kerns was positive that Montgomery County will turn out the vote on the republican side of the ticket, saying, "We are going to win this race. … We're going to win Montgomery County this year."

Rep. Todd Stephens, (R-151), said there "is no doubt about it," that Montgomery County and Pennsylvania are still in play during this campaign. He noted how often both campaigns are visiting not only the state, but the county.

He continued that Americans will make a very clear decision on which way they want to move the country during this election. Stephens said the Romney plan will raise everyone up.

Stephens also cited a few numbers: that volunteers have made seven times more phone calls during this campaign than during 2008, and have knocked on 1 million more doors. In Pennsylvania alone, volunteers have made eight times more phone calls than 2008 and have knocked on 430,000 this campaign season alone.

"We are excited…about this [election]," said Stephens.

Tom Murt (R-152), said, "Our country…can't [endure] four more years of failed policies."

He said the Romney plan will deliver tangible benefits for all Americans by protecting intellectual property rights, improving the Keystone Pipeline and more.

Kate Harper (R-61), said Pennsylvania has passed a budget every year and has been careful not to raise taxes in the state. She added that it isn't easy, but it is possible to balance a budget without raising taxes.

She continued that it's time to "elect a new CEO for America."

Harper said every generation of Americans have been told that their God given talents will help them to succeed in this country. However, she continued, that Americans have lost the conifence in America's own ingenuity to succeed.

That's why we can't take four more years of the economy that we have now, she said.

Harper said she believes that President Obama truly wants to solve the economy, but doesn't know how.

Tagg Romney began by telling those gathered something his wife told him: "There is nothing more important for our kids' future than getting your dad elected."

He continued that there could not be two more different visions for the country than during this year's election. Romney said his father's plan would lower taxes for the middle class and cut back on needless regulation.

"Small businesses…really struggle with regulation," said Romney.

"Its time for a positive change," he continued.

Romney said there are two big reasons to elect his father: he is competent, qualified, and experienced and because, "he's a really good person."

Romney said his father spent 25 years in the private sector. "He knows how to fix things, he knows how to get things done," said Romney.

He continued that his father, "Is a deeply caring, loving man," and is running for president because he knows he can fix the problems of this country.

I DISAGREE THAT OBAMA WANTS TO SOLVE THE ECONOMY I BELIEVE HE WANTS TO TURN US INTO A SOCIALIST COUNTRY TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON THE GOVERNMENT.

I will never vote for Romney/Ryan. Romney has shown by his remarks on Libya that he wants more war. Do you all forget that, or do you think that more involvement will somehow benefit our economy? What good does it do to keep skirting around the real issue of the war/occupation in the Middle East (which is in violation of our own Constitution) by talking about taxes and government programs? None of those things matter when we are spending billions a day on war. Savings and redistribution will be immediate by just getting our guys off foreign soil where they are hated and unwelcome. At least Obama has taken steps in the right direction in the most important issue of all. Wake up.

Hey Yikes you won't have to worry about war in the Middle East because you will be standing in your own bread line if Obama is re elected. You wake up. Obama sure took steps in the right direction when he protected our ambassador and the others that were killed on 09/11/2012.

Hey melody - that would never have happened if...oh say...we weren't THERE to begin with!

Hi, Leann! Great pix. I copied a few ;-)

HEY YIKES DON'T BE SO IGNORANT AS TO BELIEVE THE ENEMY IS NOT ALREADY HERE .THEIR LEADER IS LIVING AT 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVE!!!

Go away Romney, we don't want you here.
Jeanne October 01, 2012 at 01:05 PM
I think Libya has made it clear that it is they who want war. We can stick our heads in the sand and blame a movie or we can wake up to what is really happening.
Curmudgeon October 01, 2012 at 02:09 PM
@Dresher Mom: Funny, that's how I felt about Michelle Obama. Your comment shows how small you are. You should be arrested for child abuse if you really are a mom. Is that what you teach your kids. I thought that Upper Dublin is a "NO PLACE FOR HATE." Or is that only for those you agree with???
Robert Bowen October 01, 2012 at 03:39 PM
Get a grip liberal dems. Crime is up, desperation has gripped the nation. All Obama wants is bigger gov't and more social programs. That does not works as it did not with Carter etc. We need jobs and we need Romney elected if you want the economy to improve.
Joellyn Stevens October 01, 2012 at 03:59 PM
Dresher Mom Yes go away Romney we want to be governed by the dictator Barack Obama. We want the government telling us what our kids are taught in school. We want our girls receiving the morning after pill. We want our government telling us what we can eat, what we can plant in our gardens, what we drive, what kind of light bulbs we use, what kind of house we can live in. We are so looking forward to the government telling us who is eligible for life saving healthcare. Yes I agree with Curmudgeon you are a very small and I will add ignorant person, Stop listening to the mainstream media's pack of lies. You can think for yourself can't you?
Pam October 01, 2012 at 04:13 PM
Joellyn: Very well said! This is what the "Dictator" has done thus far. Can you imagine what another four years of this guy would present us with? Without another election campaign facing him in four years, he would have nothing to lose. God help us all! Very scary.....

In one of Obama's recent campaign speels he said he didn't see any victims. I suggest he have his eyes examined WE ARE ALL VICTIMS thanks to his policies.
brian October 01, 2012 at 05:44 PM
All: don't vote on party lines, or what your parents told you to do, or what your "image" shows you are supposed to do... vote based upon past performance. if you think obama has accomplished his goals, and has helped our nation for the better, then vote for him. unfortunately... he hasnt been able to accomplish almost any of the things he campaigned on. 4 fours is a lifetime in our world today. NEXT!
Joan October 01, 2012 at 06:59 PM
I WOULD NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA IF HE HAD A STERLING RECORD. THE MAN CONDONES ALL FORMS OF ABORTION. WHEN HE WAS A SENATOR HE VOTED THREE TIMES TO UPHOLD PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION. ANIMALS TREAT THEIR YOUNG WITH MORE COMPASSION! THE DEMS ARE ALWAYS TALKING ABOUTH THE WOMEN'S RIGHTS. IN THEIR EYES THE INNOCENT BABY HAS NO RIGHTS!
John Eric Schneider October 02, 2012 at 12:29 AM
Obviously, the word "socialist' has become nothing more than the latest catch phrase to demonize President Obama and those that support him. Not the first time I've seen this. Most of the people saying, couldn't identify a real socialist if their lives depended on it. Some just latch on to the latest talking point and beat it to death until they get the next one handed to them by their 'party's leadership'. Then, they just sound like a bunch of parrots. The sad part is that they don't realize they aren't convincing anyone, they are only preaching to themselves. But they don't get it. They'll just keep yammering away, thinking they're convincing someone. But that will all change the day after election day when they wonder 'what the hey' happened. Sad part is the Republican leadership in Montco doesn't correct them or teach them to discuss the issues in a rational way, they just let them rip, insulting people. It's one of the reasons why the Republican party in Montco needs some major changes. I vote the candidate, and this election, I'm voting AGAIN for President Obama.

Thank you John Eric Schneider - you nailed it perfectly. Maybe things will change.... "...Sad part is the Republican leadership in Montco doesn't correct them or teach them to discuss the issues in a rational way, they just let them rip, insulting people. It's one of the reasons why the Republican party in Montco needs some major changes."

We do not have to repeat anyone on Obama's socialism except the man himself. He verifies it when he opens his mouth.
Dot October 03, 2012 at 12:41 AM
Invitation to interested folks: At the Willow Grove VFW on Wednesday, 3 October...debate watching at 9:00PM; in the time running up to that, starting at 6:00 phone banking with AFP. Spread the word of economic freedom in the wake of failed policies.
