Pennsylvania Newspapers Back Republican John Maher For Auditor General

Republican John Maher continues to pick up endorsements from newspapers across Pennsylvania, including several newspapers that typically endorse Democrats:

York Daily Record: "Maher deserves credit for independence and effectiveness."

Philadelphia Inquirer:  "His auditing background gives John Maher the edge. With Maher, voters can be assured of having an auditor general who needs no on-the-job training. He even likes wearing a green eyeshade." 

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"Send a real pro..." "Pennsylvania deserves an auditor general who knows how to audit."  

Harrisburg Patriot-News"'The CPA for Pa.' Maher is right man for auditor general"

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review"a CPA who built his own auditing firm and whose commitment to government transparency and accountability is unflinching."
Uniontown Herald-Standard"the streak of auditors general in Pennsylvania not being CPAs should end in 2012."

Pennsylvania Extends Deadline For Absentee Ballots

Because of the disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy, which forced the closing of many state and county offices, Pennsylvania has extended the deadline to submit absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 General Election by two days.

The Pennsylvania Department of State, which overseas elections, released the following statement:
Gov. Tom Corbett ordered the deadline for county election offices to receive applications for absentee ballots to be extended, on a county-by-county basis, depending on whether the county courthouse was closed for business any day this week due to Hurricane Sandy.

The deadline for voters to have absentee ballot applications to county election offices is October 30.  However, that deadline will be extended one day for each day a voter’s county courthouse is closed this week, but no later than Friday, November 2, by 5 p.m.

“I urge voters to mail applications immediately, and county election officials to process these applications and get absentee ballots to voters as quickly as possible,” said Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele, whose department oversees elections.  Aichele noted voters may mail absentee ballot applications to their county election office, or deliver the application in person.

Voters who become physically disabled or ill, or who learn they must be absent from your municipality of residence because of your business, duties, or occupation, can file for an emergency absentee ballot, by completing and filing with the Court of Common Pleas in their county an emergency absentee ballot application.
Information on filing absentee ballot applications is available at

The decision to turn an incumbent president out of office is never one to be undertaken lightly by voters. But good intentions, repeated promises and lofty rhetoric are no substitute for sound economics and a foreign policy grounded in realism and strength. It is time once again for change in Washington, and we strongly believe that Mitt Romney offers the right combination of experience, vision, leadership and moral grounding to reinvigorate the nation’s economy, bring a measure of control to the ocean of debt threatening to engulf us, and lay out a foreign policy that has the clarity and force needed to deter aggression while promoting international stability.

Michael Barone: A newspaper endorsement that may matter

Historic newspaper endorsement for Romney

The Des Moines Register, the largest newspaper in Iowa, and a paper that has not endorsed a Republican presidential candidate in more than 40 years, is backing Mitt Romney for president!

From the endorsement editorial:
The former governor and business executive has a strong record of achievement in both the private and the public sectors. He was an accomplished governor in a liberal state. He founded and ran a successful business that turned around failing companies. He successfully managed the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Romney has made rebuilding the economy his No. 1 campaign priority — and rightly so.
 Read the full endorsement at the newspaper's website

This endorsement is huge. The Des Moines Register is a liberal bastion that endorsed Barack Obama in 2008. It's influence should carry Romney to a win in Iowa and could swing most of the Midwest battlegound states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio to Romney.

Presidential Endorsement For Mitt Romney By Rev. Billy Graham?

Without coming out directly to tell Christians they should vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket, the Rev. Billy Graham has posted the message below on his website and has run full-page ads across the country urging people of faith to remember which candidates share their values. The Obama/Biden ticket supports abortion, gay marriage and Obamacare mandates that interfere with religious freedom by forcing faith-based organizations to pay for abortions and birth control for their employees. It's pretty clear who Rev. Graham will be voting for on Nov. 6.

Planned Parenthood: Misinformation central

Columnist Gil Spencer on the deceptive tacticts of abortion-provider Planned Parenthood:
Imagine if McDonald's poured millions of dollars into advertising a new, super healthy burger to go along with its regular bill of fare, but when you showed up to order one you were told "Oh, we don't sell those here but we can refer you to a place that does." Wouldn’t you think that odd? Well, Planned Parenthood has been doing something quite similar to that for years when it comes to mammograms.

A bit of a surprise since the newspaper leans left, but the Harrisburg Patriot-News, one of Pennsylvania's most influential newspapers, is backing Republican David Freed for Pennsylvania Attorney General, saying he would do the best job as the state's top law enforcement official.

From the Patriot-News endorsement editorial:
"Having Freed in our backyard has given The Patriot-News a close look at how he conducts himself. He has gone after Republicans and Democrats and independents.

In short, he has kept a professional eye on prosecuting criminals, regardless of who they are or where they come from. We believe he will do the same as attorney general."

Dallas Morning News Endorses Romney for President

From an editorial in the Dallas Morning News endorsing Mitt Romney:
Romney has shown an ability to lead, from turning around the deficit-ridden 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics to his term as Massachusetts governor. His plans for tax and entitlement reform are encouraging, shifting the focus from government first to freeing the private sector to innovate. Voters should demand more specifics, but at the heart of his plans — especially on reforming a teetering Medicare system — is an instinct to rely on competition over regulation to drive growth.

Obama himself once said that if he didn’t repair the economy "in three years, this would be a one-term proposition." The facts show it’s time for a principled, pragmatic leader who can get Washington working again.

More 'Replace Obamacare' Billboards Go Up in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Commercial Action Network (PACAN), an advocacy group for small businesses, is adding three more "Replace Obamacare" billboards across Pennsylvania on the eve of the Nov. 6 election.

From a PACAN posting on the group's website
PACAN is placing 3 more "Replace Obamacare" billboards along I-95 and I-76 in the Philadelphia market.  "We'll now be impressing 2 million people a week by the end of October, but we'd like to double that with digital bulletins along Pennsylvania's major highways," said Matt Balazik, "We need the public's help to share this reminder that Obamacare is bad policy that incentivizes limiting access and reducing quality."

In addition to the over 1,000 "Replace Obamacare" bumper stickers ordered by the public in the past 2 weeks, several hundred anti-voter-fraud yard signs have been ordered and we expect to see them at polling places around the commonwealth.
 PACAN is also offering a cash reward for information about potential voter fraud in Pennsylvania.

Conservative Newspaper Endorses Liberal Bob Casey!

What a back-handed endorsement of ultra-liberal Sen. Bob Casey Jr. by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, which is probably the most conservative newspaper in Pennsylvania: "Despite our policy differences with Casey, we prefer the Democrat we know to the Republican of convenience."

Apparently, the newspaper doesn't trust businessman Tom Smith because he spent most of his life as a registered Democrat before he switched to the Republican Party and defeated several better-known candidates for the right to challenge Casey.

Pretty harsh words against Smith. Wasn't Ronald Reagan a Democrat before he saw the light?

The race still comes down to far-left Casey, who has rubber-stamped the failed Obama agenda over the past four years or a "conservative Democrat" who is pushing fiscal restraint, smaller government and accountability.

The Tribune-Review editorial says Casey is a nice guy who has treated Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, a conservative idol, with respect, but the bottom line is that Tom Smith's platform is a lot closer to Toomey's than it is to Bob Casey's.

Sending Mr. Smith to Washington as part of a Republican majority in the Senate would go a long way to repairing the damage Barack Obama has done over the past four years.

Romney Calls Philly Girl In T-Shirt Flap

Keystone Report, a Pennsylvania-based news aggregator, reports that Mitt Romney called the Philadelphia student who was bullied by her Obama-supporting teacher for wearing a Romney/Ryan T-shirt to school.

Keystone Report says Romney called Samantha Pawlucy on Wednesday to offer her support and encouragement. Because of the publicity and hostile environment at the Philadelphia public school, the Pawlucy family is looking for a private school to send their daughter.

After the incident was publicized in a Philadelphia newspaper, the math teacher said she was just joking when she ordered the 15-year-old student to take off the shirt because the teacher was offended by it,  comparing it to wearing a KKK robe.

The student stayed away from school for several days and when she eventually returned, dozens of supporters greeted her outside the school.

The Philadelphia Inquirer has more on the family.

Pa. groups offers reward for voter fraud information

The Pennsylvania Commercial Action Network (PACAN) is unveiling "Replace Obamacare" billboards across Pennsylvania starting this week and offering a reward for evidence of voter fraud in the Keystone state. PACAN is an advocacy group for small- and medium-sized businesses.

From a PACAN press release:

First in Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley, PACAN's placements will remind a half million drivers a week to "Replace Obamacare," with plans to ramp up placements to reach 4 million viewers a week by the last week of October.

"The Congressional Budget Office is predicting that in 4 years, up to 20 million employer-sponsored plans will be cancelled because of Obamacare," said Managing Director Matt Balazik. "Our members have been worried that Obamacare's goal of a single-payer insurance market will affect their ability to keep a competitive advantage by offering exceptional health care plans to their employees and their families."

Also this week, PACAN is opening up a vote-fraud-reporting hotline (717-441-4388) and offering individuals the ability to print their own polling place signs advertising $1,000 rewards for information leading to a voter fraud conviction.
"We are asking voters, 'if you see something, say something.'  Doing the right thing by reporting election fraud, which hurts everyone, is a civic responsibility that comes with its own reward.  But, we'd like to let individuals know that there are folks out there who will support you and are very thankful you are willing to come forward, because not everyone will," added Director Skip Salvesen.

67.2M Watched First Presidential Debate

If the Obama campaign was hoping Wednesday night's debacle in Denver would go unnoticed, The Nielsen Company has some bad news: More than 67 million Americans tuned in to watch the first televised debate between President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

That’s a 28% increase over 2008’s Obama-McCain debate, according to Joanne Ostrow of The Denver Post. That makes it the highest rated first election-season debate since 1980 and the most watched presidential debate since 1992.

Surprisingly, 12 million of those viewers were 18- to-34-year-olds. The bulk of the audience, 30 million, were age 55-plus, Ostrow notes.

Most accounts had Romney cleaning Obama's clock in the Mile High City.

Here's Nielsen's breakdown by network:

It's not going to be easy to eliminate school property taxes in Pennsylvania, but that's why lawmakers make the big bucks. They need to work on a solution to the state's onerous property tax system.

Paul Ryan Congratulates Mitt Romney On Debate Win

Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan made the following statement on tonight’s presidential debate: 
"Americans deserve a clear choice about what kind of future we’re going to have, and Governor Romney provided that contrast tonight.  Mitt won this debate by effectively articulating his positive vision for a better America and the specific solutions needed to achieve it. The President, meanwhile, offered only more of the same failed ideas that have left those in the middle class – as Joe Biden put it – ‘buried.’ As we continue to sharpen the focus on the big choice in this election, Americans will see that we cannot afford four more years like the last. We need a real recovery, and Mitt Romney can get the job done."

PA GOP Chairman Rob Gleason Applauds Mitt Romney For Winning First Presidential Debate

Republican Party of Pennsylvania Rob Gleason issued the following statement following Mitt Romney's  performance at tonight's first Presidential Debate:
"Whether we’re talking about jobs, health care, debt or taxes, the choice this election is clear – Mitt Romney is the candidate best equipped and with the plans necessary to take our country forward.  Under President Obama, we will have four more years like the last four years, with a stagnant economy that fosters government dependency and a foreign policy that makes the world less safe. When Mitt Romney is president, our nation will have pro-growth policies that will ensure everyone has the opportunity to get a job, become successful and live the American dream.

"Mitt Romney won tonight’s debate by illuminating the clear choice between his vision for a prosperous America and President Obama’s failed record. Pennsylvania voters who watched this debate saw a clear choice between a President who delivers flowery speeches filled with empty rhetoric or a real recovery under a Romney-Ryan Administration.  Mitt Romney has proven today that he is ready to command and lead our nation towards a brighter and more prosperous future."

PA Sen. Pat Toomey: Romney 'clear winner' of presidential debate

Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey issued the following statement on tonight’s presidential debate: 
"It’s rare that a debate produces the kind of clear winner we saw tonight. Governor Romney needed to articulate a plan for the next four years. He did just that, presenting the kind of plan we’ve been waiting to see from the President. We haven’t seen Barack Obama’s plan, and we didn’t get it in tonight’s debate either. Based on what we heard in Denver, the choice in this election is between a new plan for jobs and prosperity and more of the same failed policies that have yielded economic stagnation and job loss."
