That would be a real hoot to see MN go for Romney! The Franken election couldn't have been any closer.

If Minnesota votes for Romney, it's all over: he's the next President of the United States.

I think the most telling aspect of this story is how they described the various signs at the Obama office -- "Latinos for Obama, African-Americans for Obama, etc". I think that goes to the heart of Democratic politics -- dividing the population into niche groups and pitting the against one another, rather than seeing all of us as "Americans" with a shared sense of purpose and common bond that ties us together. Sad, in my opinion.

Despite inaccurate polling by the Strib and the recent KSTP poll...Minnesota is definitely in play for Romney. That the Obama campaign would trot out that intern abusing Clinton the week before the election speaks volumes. 50/50 in MN at this point.

One might wonder how Minnesota scandal-ridden Republicans, who earlier this year faced eviction from their own headquarters for nonpayment of more than $111,000 of rent, can open 39 Romney campaign offices on their own dimes...Putting it on the credit card again? Every dollar wasted on RoMoney is a good one! LOL !

What's wrong with corporate cash? It is hard-earned money. It spends just like the money from George Soros, the Hollywood elite, musicians, and all the untraceable donations made over the Internet.

Romney will lose big in MN and the electoral college. He is the most disingenuous candidate I have ever seen in my 57 years of following politics, His fake food drive yesterday in Ohio says all you need to know about what this man will do to get a vote. His campaign bought $5000 of goods at Wallmart and then had people pretend they were donating and Romney was thanking them in front of the camera for the fake donations. He is creepy!

You voted for Obama to prove you're not racist. Now vote for Romney to prove you're not stupid.
