Obama campaign: We're well positioned for final push

,

Washington (CNN) - With 75 days left until Election Day, Team Obama's top ranks said Thursday they're encouraged by the campaign's standing among key voting constituencies, including women, African Americans, Latinos and younger members of the electorate.

At a briefing for reporters, senior campaign officials pointed to a consistent lead in national polling as well as a sufficiently favorable view of the president among undecided voters to argue the real story of the general race is one of consistency, not volatility.

    Texas Democrats are calling for the resignation of a Republican elected county judge who warned this week that the nation could descend into civil war if President Barack Obama is re-elected.

    'Why is Obama arming federal agencies with hollow-point bullets?' The Social Security Administration suddenly ordered 174,000 rounds of .357 hollow-point pistol ammo, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration just purchased 46,000 rounds of such ammunition. Why would Obama need hollow-point bullets?

    Huffington Post, August 23, 2012: Martial Law by Executive Order by Jim Garrison

    President Obama's National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order of March 16 does to the country as a whole what the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act did to the Constitution in particular - completely eviscerates any due process or judicial oversight for any action by the Government deemed in the interest of "national security." Like the NDAA, the new Executive Order puts the government completely above the law, which, in a democracy, is never supposed to happen. The United States is essentially now under martial law without the exigencies of a national emergency.

    WASHINGTON POST reporting today
    A Bain document dump by GAWKER website has shed more light on Romney's offshore accounts through Bain investments and three hedge-funds in which Romney, his wife Ann and his children have invested.
    Some of the funds listed underlying assets that included loans to companies ranging from "HEALTHCARE FIRMS" to the "LAS VEGAS SANDS" the casino owned by MAJOR DONOR Sheldon Adelson. Adelson is the largest public donor in the presidential campaign giving more than $45 Million.

      You have noting concerning government loans and grants to a firm that had Rahm, Axelrod, and a huge Obama bundler on the roster? Notihing on that? PRIVATE EQUITY vs GOVERNMENT LOANS And GRANTS!

        "White House records show that Exelon executives were able to secure an unusually large number of meetings with top administration officials at key moments in the consideration of environmental regulations that have been drafted in a way that hurt Exelon’s competitors, but curb the high cost of compliance for Exelon and its industry allies

        From the NY Times!

        But you're concerned about PRIVATE funding Cynthia L? No concern about GOVERNMENT LOANS AND GRANTS to Exelon?

    WOW, why all the hostility? You people loved Obama in 2008, now what??? If you ask me, most people rather let someone else think for them. Romney would be the worst for the country, ritght now. At least Obama cares about people. Romney just cares about winning. Obama vs. Romney, is putting the RNC on the defense. They are using this "I'm rubber, your glue" strategy that is so childish it is ridiculous to see the Romney camp use it. Go figure.

    CNN is the death of fair and balanced news. What has happened to our country under this President? We have become racially divided. His comments today about voting for "revenge"? That is not the leadership the country needs. As Michelle Obama once stated. " I am now proud to be an American" I must say I am embarrassed to be an American under this President.
