Obama campaign hopes to capture buzz in energized New Hampshire

Chicago (CNN) - While the political world is focused on the Republican primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday, President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is also getting out the vote, quietly testing its organization in what promises to be a key swing state in November.

Just like in Iowa last week, Obama for America plans to use Tuesday as a kind of trial run, a chance to test the strength of the campaign's existing volunteer base and recruit new supporters who might be energized by the state's political mood.

"For us the goal of the primaries is the same as the goal of the caucuses, which is to expand upon the unrivaled organization that we've built this year," OFA press secretary Ben LaBolt told CNN during a recent visit to the campaign's headquarters in downtown Chicago. "And what makes this different from previous re-election campaigns is that the president never let his organization across the country go away."

      Can you say Barak wHosueHinee Obumer?

      Nobody says wHouseHinee's FIRST or MIDDLE Name at CNN...

      Go figure!

      I mean, If I said the
      President, Desie Arnez Obama and his wife Lucie,,,,

      It would not be posted here on CNN,,,

      All we can say is "the president was shellacked by the Republicans led by THe NEGRO Allen West from Florida"

      I would not be able to "PRESIDENT BARACK HOUSEINNE ARNEZ" on CNN

      Just because THE LATINOS have DIFFICULT NAMES to pronounce, Like Fidel Castro, Che Guavera, the guy from Venezuela, The Commie from Brazil, and the Others,,,

      Let us not suffer from North Koreans and Iranians and Middle Easterners!

      We are the World!

      Right on, sir President Barack is so smart and efficient that made the republicans jelaous and aggressive. It seems with the exception of Bill Clinton and Carter, most presidents in this ear have been republican ? I am not sure.

      Ecian: it just an appearance. Millions of Americans are only partly caucasian; they look white but descend from mixed people.They claim to be white because they ignore or hide the truth.

      In my case I was born in Guatemala and I look white and yellow, but I found out later that kidnapped Jamaican people were sent to Guatemala after 400 Italian slaves died of malaria and there were no laborers to raise needed crops.

      Also in the middle ages, in the Venice Market, slaves from asia, europe, spain, Africa, china, etc. were sold and bought there. So using the skin color issue is totally mistaken.

    I don't care we just need to get rid of Obama. He wants to turn us into a welfare nation. People who so how go to college, get a degree work hard and earn a good paycheck are the devil that needs to pay for the people who don't want to workhard and earn things the old fashion way.

      of course don't care chuck.....Its people like you that got Dubya elected to a 2nd term. Voters like you find it difficult to follow an intelligent approach to fixing disasters in this country. You prefer silly Faux news bumper sticker sound bites in providing your informed position (NOT).

      President Obama inherited a mess! Did you not notice? A lesser intellect i.e. McCrypt/Palin would have destroyed this country in nothing flat. The reason the uber wealthy hate President Obama so much, is because he wouldn't allow them the opportunity of buying up the scraps of the Auto industry, at bargain basement prices, once it imploded...and firing all those assembly line people and evicerating their pensions (i.e. Bain capital and ROMney-ROBOT) And then Obama returned wealth to middle class families that lost $4 trillion in their 401ks during Dubya's tenure...Proof? Dow at 6700 when Obama took office, its nearly double that now.

      Of course you don't care. People like you would never notice the good Obama has done for this country...The question remains; Is your vapid ignorance a result of too much Faux News/ Fake facts or should you just return to your mom's basement while the rest of this country moves forward and continues with President Obama in recovering from the Bush mess ?
