An Offensive Display

Mitt Romney is pretending to remain on offense going into the final weekend of the campaign as he makes a desperate effort to make headway in Pennsylvania.

In a late campaign push to change the battleground map, Mitt Romney will travel to Pennsylvania on Sunday in the hopes of capturing the traditionally Democratic-leaning state. A Romney campaign official confirmed to CNN the GOP nominee will stop in the Philadelphia area Sunday afternoon. The Pennsylvania event falls into the Romney campaign's newly adopted strategy of expanding the battleground map in the final week of the race.

Top strategists to the GOP nominee targeted Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Minnesota this week for potential gains, pointing to polls in the states that show Romney gaining on the President.

Sure they are, guys.   McCain made similar flailing moves in the last week of the campaign only to lose enough ground in Florida to give the state to Obama in 2008.  This is the act of a guy playing the last cards in his hand when there's nothing left in the deck and he's down big.  Nate Silver's giving 95% odds of Obama winning those three states.  But Romney says "they're in play."

Sure they are.
