Colorado Swings Towards Romney

Romney/Ryan should be a landslide victory. There is only one State that I wonder about and that is OH. They seem to have a lot of liberal thinkers and that is scary! I don't think it's about what Ohioans can do for their country but what can Big Government can do for me, me, me, me. I'm glad to see a part of Colorado using their brains instead of another part of their anatomy. Maybe OH will surprise us! Suppose?

Romney HAS to win Ohio to win the election, no question about it.

Not true! Ohio is populated by union goons who think beating up old people is cool.

No Republican has ever won without Ohio, but that doesn't really mean anything. It used to be axiomatic that no Democrat would win without Texas, but Bill Clinton did it, and so did Obama.

LAIRD, Colo. – This small Great Plains town is the terminus of a journey across the Rocky Mountain State on U.S. 34, greeting travelers from Nebraska and bidding farewell to Coloradoans.

On either side of the highway stand two slightly oversized “Romney for President” signs.

In the distance, in a town boasting 47 people, a stone octagonal house sits forlornly, its former glory faded by neglect and the elements.

This highway and U.S. 36, passing through Jefferson and Arapahoe counties, give way to a state not at all like the one often envisioned, politically or economically, from afar.
