Romney to Visit the Main Line Friday

Find out how you can attend the event or follow it online.

Republican Presidential challenger Mitt Romney will speak at a public rally Friday at Valley Forge Military Academy and College.

The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. but the doors of Mellon Hall open at 9:30 a.m. To get a ticket, visit http://mi.tt/S9ZmZG.

“I’m excited. The next president is coming to Radnor Township,” said Alan Brink, chair of the Radnor Republican Party. “It shows that Romney is still interested in Pennsylvania.”

Patch will be live blogging Romney’s event on all of the Main Line area Patch Web sites. Become part of the conversation with us on Twitter.com by using #RomneyPa when tweeting from the event.

According to Mittromney.com, all event attendees will go through airport-like security and should bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, umbrellas, liquids or signs will be allowed in the venue. Cameras are allowed.

“An interesting aspect of this is just how fast these events get put together,” Brink said, adding that emails were flying all day Thursday looking for volunteers.

Radnor Police said that they were only given a day’s notice, too. Read about how local traffic may be affected.

Hey all you Romney fans (dolts)....what do you have to say about the fact that Romney's campaign is bankrupt? A bankrupt campaign and this is the guy you think is going to help our economy? Come on now, I know you hate to answer to FACTS...I'll be waiting. LOL!

CitizenJohn, I happen to like kool aid. So why re-iterate the boring cliches from the tea-party? Then there is this one: "EPIC FAIL"...Last time I checked, people who used such words were not old enough to drink a beer. Anyway, Romney's 47% comment was insulting to people that work hard and are forced to evolve with the system. In other words, they really have no choice being parasitic. The government, itself, is parasitic. In other words, it's complimentary. Now, if you believe one can make it without government: that means, no military, no police, no libraries, schools, you name it, then I assume you are someone stuck in the 17th century. Otherwise, get with the times. Understand that people like you are more dependent on government the most: with your silly morality based laws (say no drugs, for example) and your need to make people moral automatons (Janet Jackson's boob slip hurt your feelings - fine NBC millions!) So you see, it works both ways, doesnt it? You need government to keep everyone civil. You are even more needy than the 47% "Citizen John"

hey Romney supporters, will you sign something that says you will not depend on medicare and social security when you reach that age. Or, have you already reached that age but are lying to everyone about your wealth? Pick one.
Joe The Nerd Ferraro September 29, 2012 at 01:18 AM
look at the pictures of these kids. not a smile on ANY of them. they must have had a blast!
Wallst September 29, 2012 at 01:24 AM
While there aren't any conservatives here that will admit that they picked the wrong guy to go up against Obama, there are thousands across this country that are now realizing that this empty suit can't touch President Obama, and they are cringing at the thought of the first debate on October 3 where the President will mop the floor with Romney. It's not going to be pretty.
TP September 29, 2012 at 01:46 AM
WOW...something other than ROFLOL, LOL, your a dummy from Wallst! Now let's actually hear him talk about Obama's record..that's the real challenge! Can it be...might he actually put a coherent thought together...stay tuned!
TP September 29, 2012 at 01:50 AM
hey Eric...will you sign a pledge that you will not post your mindless babble on this comment board and that you will actually go out and find a job so you can pay my SS and medicare?
Eric W September 29, 2012 at 02:10 AM
I asked first, JF. Will you depend on the Medicare/Social Security that you are saying is socialism? My job is great and allows me to work from home when I need to. Get with the times, old timer.
TP September 29, 2012 at 02:24 AM
Eric, You took that bait hook line and sinker...oh and your buddy Biden was down in Florida today offering free colonoscopies...when will you be going down to get your mouth checked out?
Frances Stein September 29, 2012 at 03:57 AM
Awesome, Marie. Thanks so much. It's an easy job once again.
Frances Stein September 29, 2012 at 03:58 AM
Precisely. The right wing is itching to pull the trigger. Under Romney, we'd be doomed. But thank God this will not be the reality.
Frances Stein September 29, 2012 at 04:00 AM
Better get those bandaids and sutures ready, Susan. You're going to be doing a lot of walking. President Obama will be reelected handily.
Frances Stein September 29, 2012 at 04:01 AM
The Republicans created this mess. Thank God that President Obama is leading the way out. Forget the trickle down economics crap. Didn't work and won't work.
Frances Stein September 29, 2012 at 04:02 AM
Who cares where Romney goes in PA. He's going to lose the state, and the election. Night night everyone.
Wallst September 29, 2012 at 04:28 AM
Gee, complete silence from the cons. No surprise that they can't answer to any FACTS. LOL! Good night, losers!
Wallst September 29, 2012 at 05:02 AM
This takes the CAKE! Here's a recording from a phone bank in Florida. This woman works for the Romney campaign and is speaking to seniors. Just listen, you won't believe this! http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1213894020?bctid=1865109853001

Is Mirr RobMe teaching the cadets about his Vietnam War experience. He took the missionary position.
TP September 29, 2012 at 01:03 PM
Wallst...did you ever think some people might have jobs and go to sleep? Not like you up on your computer at 12:38am with nothing better to do...and even though I hate to do it to coin one of your phrases LOSER!
Eric W September 29, 2012 at 04:06 PM
What a boring response, JF. Your attempt at humor failed (colonoscopies dude.. so funny hardy har har) and you avoid the question about medicare and social security. Your status as a Troll is evident and I look forward to less of your posts. Stay on topic or is Alzheimers already kicking in. I can forgive you there. Answer the question: will you be depending on social security or medicare someday?
Catherine September 29, 2012 at 05:17 PM
Since 20 % of the cadets aren't U.S. citizens, those over 18 can't vote and won't be serving our country, this was actually a bizarre location for the Romney campaign to make an appearance.
John September 30, 2012 at 01:33 PM
I am going to go out on a limb and bet NONE of those supporting Obama have read the ACA (Obamacre)......NONE. And why is it important to read? Because it depicts the vast changes that this administration has put in place.....not through 2012, but through 2024. Some of you supporting Obama will be dead by then, but the gross amount of overspending in that law will most certainly end this country. No, I am not Fox ness, I am not CNN, or MSNBC, or Letterman or the View....I am simply a rare American who invested time to educate myself by reading the entire ACA. Once YOU do, your concern might be as strong as mine. Personally, I don't see why Romney is arguing over a law that the CBO has admitted will be bankrupt in 18 months...and when YOU READ IT, you will fully grasp as to how the CBO came to that conclusion. Taxing the wealthiest people 100% would not come close to covering the cost of Obamacare. With that said, I strongly recommend every American read it BEFORE casting your vote. You will see significant tax increases, not only for the rich, but those at 133% of poverty, YES, that's anyone making $48,000/yr.....don't believe me, READ IT --stop listening to all of the media and read the document! It's a law! If, after reading it you still want Obama, then at least you will be an educated voter..not what Ried and Pelosi wanted..."pass it first, then read it". Is that what you REALLY want to follow? Is that what you call leadership? I don't either. READ IT!
John September 30, 2012 at 01:48 PM
James, great point! I am guessing that your boss doesn't relate with you either, yet he or she is responsible for providing you a job, a salary so you can provide for your family. I am guessing that you and your boss dont sit around in his man cave drinking beers and watching the eagles, nor does your boss know who Beyonce or Jay Z is. What your boss does know is that they have to be responsible for the well being of their emloyees, and their employees depend upon them to lead. Unless of course you are a government employee, then your boss really doesn't give a rats behind about your well being (see Libya). My point being, your boss doesn't necessarily have to "relate with you" to have your best interst in mind. If he/she were the 'money-hungry republican' that we business owners are made out to be, he would have fired you long ago. Unfortunately, you will be the one creating more duress for your boss by voting in a second term for Obama, and he like many of us will have to decrease overhead, cutting your and many like you, jobs. Then you will have the opportunity to see first hand how Obama is screwing the middle class and the unemployed.....the only last option is that you are self employed....and as I have previously posted, if you are, I strongly urge you to read the ACA. Once you do, your tune might change.
John September 30, 2012 at 01:59 PM
READ THE ACA (OBAMACARE). Just read it....I don't understand Americans who have time to read posts, but don't take time to read a law that is destined to destroy this country! Stop spouting the trash that ALL media is spewing.....READ THE LAW, and then come to your OWN decisions....unless you want the government to do THAT for you as well. You will see that Americans earning 133% above the poverty line (that's $48,000/yr) will see increased taxes.....it's not going to help the middle class....it's going to destroy this country....how? READ IT. Taxes on real estate, limitations on how much you can defer from what's left of your paycheck to cover medical costs.....JUST READ IT!
Walter Ebmeyer September 30, 2012 at 02:19 PM
That really is amazing. Has anything been done about stopping this woman?
Wallst September 30, 2012 at 02:25 PM
I don't know, Walter, but I know what I would do if I ever received a call like that.
Mary B October 01, 2012 at 05:04 AM
Really!!!! OMG Walst! Thank you! That link to the phone call is amazing and sums it up completely! You have to be a complete moron to vote Republican this election, and I am a Repub Mod who will once again be voting for the best choice...OBAMA! And, oh, by the way, you "READ IT" proponents on the recent health care bill; I can say, with complete confidence, that you are so left field in your "Rightness" that you can't even see how it does you a favor. This BS about how much money it is costing, is just that, BS! Albiet, the law needs to go farther and the responsibility lies with each of us personally to maintain our health. It is not only time to reelect our President and hault the obstruction in the House and Congress, but it is time for all of us to take responsibilty for ourselves, our families, our US of A; This is what President Obama is about. So, whoever it is you vote for, please do yourself and your family and friends a favor and get after your Representative and your Congressmen and let them know you are there all throughout the next four years and beyond. Regardless of who you vote for, let the elected officials aware of who their constituents are and what they are looking for in government. This is your money people, you are paying the salaries of the people who are making decisions for you! BE THERE NOW and AFTER THIS ELECTION NO MATTER WHAT!
Curmudgeon October 01, 2012 at 09:31 AM
I'm a registered Communist, Green Party, Socialist, and I will be voting for Obama three times in Philadelphia, and one time in Florida with my absentee ballot. Oh no I already did vote in Florida.
LAwoman October 01, 2012 at 12:27 PM
Registed Communist, I can tell you don't work, want more free stuff. Commy!!!! I am tired of working for all the free benefits that lazy people get.
Heather October 01, 2012 at 12:44 PM
I am aware that it was taped a long time ago. You said he hasn't been taped saying anything that warrants being covered - I was stating that his redistribution does warrant being covered. Even though it was taped a long time ago it still warrants more coverage than 1/13th of the press Romney is getting for this more recent comments. The public deserves to know what each candidate stands for - and the media shouldn't be editing the news or failing to report certain stories or statements each candidate makes (no matter how long ago it was.)
Eric W October 01, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Curmudgeon, pretending to be someone else is something Romney enjoys as well. Being fake will not make you President and will only attract naive folks. Good luck with that.
