More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Thought it is all to hard for her. Maybe she needs to pick up a check from Adelson and kiss his ass.

    D'oh!  Guess Romney was right: he shouldn't have used her so much.

    Is Tennessee up for grabs? I'm wondering why is Ryan in Knoxville today. Didn't think the Volunteer State was in play. Someone mentioned it as a possibility if President Obama started pulling away in the swing states. Maybe the GOP is on defense. Or more likely, they're fundraising again.

    Interesting.

      for the decade I suppose. It's a  possible a fundraiser...but I doubt what haul would come out of TN, seeing there are practically all 47%ters...

    •  POTUS was only -6 in recent TN poll (0+ / 0-)

      but this is surely a fund raiser. Gov Haslam et al. have a few bucks to throw around. We ain't all hillbillies down here y'all. Christianists rife with apathy toward the Mormon candidate. Too bad TN dems allowed a white supremacist, gay hater on the ballot to face Sen Corker.  Such political malpractice misses what might have been a real challenge opportunity given the current apathy toward Romney.

    •  and what is the point of an unspecified event? (0+ / 0-)

      or do Republicans like flash mobs these days.................

      but if you want public support, don't you need to say where and when and what is going on???

      that seems events management 101 to me.

    It was a month ago that Intrade had Obama in the mid 50s and Romney in the low 40s.  Since then Obama has climbed around twenty points and the bottom has fallen out for Rmoney.

    These are people who are voting -- with their wallets!!!

    •  Exactly...they had advertised a 3 day trip... (0+ / 0-)

      and now they just skipped town? Like everything else Romney just changed his mind...I'm sure Ryan wants to be away from Romney as much as he can...he can't wait for this to be over...just hoping to hang onto his house seat...

  •  Ryan in Knoxville might be a party commitment. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    He might head to NC from there.  Only 1 event for Romney today.  It's at the same time as the President's event.  I don't think there will be any expansion to new states by OFA until after the first debate.  But given how few battlegrounds there are in this race, Obama would get a net benefit in press coverage if he changed the itinerary a bit.he should spend time in NC, add AZ, and take a peek at 1 other state like IN, MO, or GA.
