Mariella Savidge October 06, 2012 at 02:54 PM
I sure think so, careless fills. You are who she wants to talk to, after all!
George T. Wacker October 06, 2012 at 03:23 PM
So, Pennsylvania is still in play? Sweet! Go, Romney!
Robert Sentner October 06, 2012 at 03:37 PM
guess Obama has a muzzle on old Joe and is sending his wife. God knows she is wayyyyyy smarter than her husband
Mary Ellen Alu (Editor) October 06, 2012 at 05:22 PM
Campaign is saying this is open to Obama Volunteers and Supporters.
Never gets an answer from the Township October 06, 2012 at 06:52 PM
no reason to send the high powered campaigners to PA when it is already won by Obama, this is a way to say thanks to the supporters without actually sending anyone of significance
Carl W October 07, 2012 at 02:40 PM
Yes, Romney, just GO...........
Carl W October 07, 2012 at 02:44 PM
Actually, her husband is busy in areas that might not be more important. She's just here to put the final nail on a dent.
Carl W October 07, 2012 at 02:46 PM
Correction to above, "other areas that might BE more important." Sorry to all.
Carl W October 07, 2012 at 02:50 PM
Special thanks to the FLOOD of New Yorkers energetically coming down at their own expense, to help talk to people about voting Obama. It meant a lot to so many homeowners. See you next weekend!
John October 08, 2012 at 05:19 PM
So which is it, open, or only open to Obama people? I would like what she has to say. Mary Ellen and Mariella seem to have 2 separate sources. Thank you.
John October 08, 2012 at 05:26 PM
So if its already a moot point, why the need for outsiders to talk with people regarding Obama? Mixed talk versus actions......hmmmm....where have I heard that before? Mixed messages create fear, so I am assuming that there remains concern...suggesting it isn't a guarantee.
Wendy Rupp October 08, 2012 at 08:05 PM
Yeah, I wouldn't go to hear her if it was free. How smart can she be with an idiot husband? Yikes!
Rosemary B October 08, 2012 at 11:45 PM
How do they know if you are not an Obama supporter? If you want to hear what she has to say then go. Maybe she will sway your opinion one way or another.

Open to supporters only.

Points of clarification, since I initiated the question about whether it would be "open" over the weekend, but then did more research today. 1) I called PSEA office and they didn't know! They suggested I call Dem party office. 2) Rather than do that, I went to the Obama website. To register, I had to give my name, email, county, and phone number, and RSVP, and then I got a confirmation/ acknowdgement that I was in. Not a ticket, but just a confirmation. 3) Sadly, due to a late change of plans, I couldn't make it, so I can't say if I would have truely been able to get in, but all indications from the written confirmation was that I might have.
