Dems Plan to Crash Romney’s Party in Land O’ Lakes

Former Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink will join teachers today outside Gov. Mitt Romney’s rally in Land O’ Lakes for a 4 p.m. press conference.

As former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney prepares to take the stage tonight inside Land O' Lakes High School's John Benedetto Stadium, Florida’s former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, teachers’ union members and other Democrats will gather outside for a 4 p.m. press conference.

“Participants will address the clear differences between the President Obama and Mitt Romney’s plans for our country, and highlight Mitt Romney’s hypocrisy of promising to cut funding for public education and teachers as he holds a rally at a public high school,” a media release from Obama for America – Florida said.

Members of the United School Employees of Pasco are organizing to stage a protest outside of Romney’s Rally. So are members of Students Against Romney, a grassroots group formed by a Land O’ Lakes High senior.

Romney’s plan to host a rally at the 20325 Gator Lane school has sparked controversy.

Detractors say the Pasco County School District violated its own policy by allowing Romney to speak. It had previously denied a request by Sink, then a gubernatorial candidate, to film a commercial at a Pasco school campus.

The school district, however, did grant Vice President Joe Biden access for a 2011 event at Oakstead Elementary School in Land O’ Lakes while he was stumping for support for the American Jobs Act.

Romney’s rally begins today, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. for ticketholders. To find out more about tickets, visit the Romney campaign online.

shows me how small a person you are. You can't have a discussion, so resort to calling us white trash.

I saw Obama yesterday claiming the new job numbers are proof that his policies are working and that we are in an economic recovery... Fact is, that is not the truth, or even close to the truth... First, the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9% and the year-to-date monthly average of 157,000 payroll jobs is barely enough to keep up with population growth -- much less make up for the 8 million jobs lost during the Great Recession. Second, the so-called real unemployment rate (U6) remains elevated at 14.6%, albeit down from 14.7% the prior month. Similarly, the labor participation rate is at 63.8%, up from its multi-decade low but still incredibly weak. Third, average hourly earnings fell a penny in October and average hours worked fell to 34.4 from 34.5 in September. Stagnant wages means "we're not generating income," Reinhart says. "That's a problem in terms of the durability of an economic expansion, which is usually fueled by consumption. To get consumption you've got to generate income." Also, just look at your checkbook. We are paying a lot more for everything now than we did in 2008. The price of gas has doubled. At the same time, wages have gone down, and that's if you're lucky to have a job. In 2008, 25 banks went out of business. In 2012, 48 banks have gone out of business. Almost double the amount. Does that sound like recovery to you? Don't believe the Obama lies!! Romney/Ryan 2012
