Obama to North Carolina

President Obama travels to the critical swing state of North Carolina to deliver remarks on the economy at a Daimler truck manufacturing plant in Charlotte. To illustrate the importance of North Carolina, Wednesday marks the third time in two weeks the Obama camp has focused here. First Lady Michelle Obama visited the state last week and Vice President Biden the week before. The state is also the site of the Democratic Convention in September.

    Obama will definitely win, its to hard to beat the collaberating news networks spin in this election.
    But in 2016, after we hit 25 Trillion in national debt, America's respect for said collaberting news netwoks(and associated liberal elite) will hit an all time low.., along with the economy. Thus finally allowing Americans to regain some sense of personal responsiblity.

    What "Osama" needs to do stay home and take care of what he was elected to do. This Latina is not voting for Osama this time.

      Latina/diana, According to recent polls- most Latino's will be voting for President Obama. The GOP has done everything they can to turn away the Latino vote, I am shocked you would even think about voting for any of their candidates. And I find your referring to our President as "Osama" very offensive.

      Diana, what have the Republicans done for the hispanic vote that you are so in support of? Just asking.

      He is doing what he is suppose to do. A president doesn't need to stay in Washington to do what he is supposed to do. Maybe just for starters you should bone up on what the duties of the President are....which does not necessarily mean staying in one place and sitting behind one desk.

      At least that was George W. Bush's reasoning when he spent 487 days at Camp David and 490 days at the Crawford Ranch in total about 2 1/2 years of his presidency. Did you do a lot of whining then?

        Jean – you seem to whine about Bush then accuse others of the same. I'm just saying.

    He is leaving NC thank goodness and he said gas prices were normal for this time of year and in a few years we will all be driving electric cars. Boy that will be nice ...maybe we can all have white ones that all look the same! He also staged a lady to faint and he said ...don't worry folks she will be fine ...it happens all the time.....I guess in front of royalty that is normal
    ANYBODY BUT OSAMA

    Why hasn't the press mentioned that this president has not made an appearance to the victims of the tornados in the Midwest? The press crucified bush because he didn't vist New Orleans after katrina....the press is filled with hypocrits, they ought to be ashamed of themselves.

    well the repo party seems to be offending everyone equally. People can vote anyway they want . Just hard to understand why so many of them are so nasty Obama 2012

    • Steveo

      Left nasty is just as nasty as right nasty!

      Over half the states in this country are sueing this administration for one reason or another. It seems that one party is definitely offending some people.

    And as much as the Republicans are on the attack of women's rights, if they lose the majority of the hispanic and women's vote,,,it's a wrap. Just keep catering the the nut-wing of the party. It'll be a huge victory again. Americans have various opinions, but the majority is not about to vote for crazy and deranged.

      Everyone knows it is a governmnet intrusion issue. The Dems want to make it "a womans issue". But most people can see what is going on.

    Did anyone notice – or even report, that Obama lost the primary in 15 Oklahoma counties on Tuesday? It won't matter at all, but it makes me wonder if even the Democrats would rather have another candiate?
