Obama reelection message hits Florida

Seminole, Florida (CNN) – President Barack Obama took his "ready to go forward" message to Florida voters in his first stop Saturday on a bus tour through the swing state.

The president was introduced by former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who was once a Republican but is now an independent and an Obama supporter. Obama said Crist backing proves "the values we are fighting for aren't just Democratic values or Republican values, they're American values."

The president reiterated the proposals on display at this week's Democratic National Convention, including plans to create more jobs, expand energy production and improve educational opportunities in the United States.

      We have been moving forward. Ask anyone who had and investment account or IRA on Jan. 20, 2009 and ask them if it is better today.

      Do you realize unemployment has been rising for a long time and is a long term problem? In 2001, when George W. Bush took office unemployment was at 6 million people, but by August 2003 that number had increased to 9 million, by September of 2007 it had increased another 2 million (to 11 million), and by January 20, 2009 the day President Obama took office it was at 12 million unemployed. In the first 9 months of President Obama's presidency (which is still operating under the Bush fiscal year budget that includes all of 2009) 3.9 million more jobs were lost. Unemployment peaked at 15.6 million in October of 2009. Since then the numbers have continually declined. Currently they stand at 12.5 million unemployed. This information is from the IPR corporation website which is an international planning & research company. (the article is by John B. Hagen)
      Stock market DOW on Jan. 20, 2001-10,587.60
      DOW on Jan. 20, 2009 – 8,281.22

        and they were able to get CAPITAL BACKING from their CHURCH, Synagog, Temple, etc,,,,

      Well myself and my loved ones, HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BREATHE A "LITTLE SIGH" of relief, we have a long way to go, and like the President said, we still have more work to do,And we do. Everyone knows when the sights of this mess(Obama been diggin us out) began.........?2007,2008....? what were you doing, sleepin?I was able to go shopping with my grandaughter and her children today, so it's slowly coming back, let's keep it real, BUSH REALLY,REALLY SCREWED US ALL, and as President Clinton said what the President was left with..................BUSH WAS A PIECE OF WORK! and he and his boys and(girls) walked away with a POCKET full of money and they want to do it again..............GREED, the "need" to control everything,and the known "FACT" they "HATE" Obama. So as slow as it may be I'm sticking with President Obama,slow but sure, he's not a magician, the kick we took to the gut(via.......BUSH)was extremely hard, it's not about blaming BUSH, he had a "DIRECT" hand in what we are all being forced to live.That's why the polls don't move much on that issue.

      You have to remember as well that government is not just the executive. It has two others, the legislative and the judiciary. When the executive, the President was busy running around stopping the bleeding of the recession even before the start of his term, the Congress was basically ineffective. Why? Because even if the Democrats had majorities in the House and a filibuster proof Senate the hope was for it to come up with bipartisan legislation to help the President and help the economy to recover. This was consistent with the President's hope to break the partisan grid-lock in Washington. You know what happened, Republicans objective was to make the President a one term President. No cooperation from the Republicans in the House and nothing good came out in the House until the end of the first two years. When Republicans won the House with a filibuster free Senate, the more nothing good went out of Congress for the next two years. So the President has done his part and used his executive powers to help out despite so much resistance from Congress. Sadly it wasn't good enough and more has to be done, but it's getting there slowly and surely rather than to experiment again with Republicans when they have and the conclusion wasn't pretty.

    • SickOfPartisanGames

      I guess we'll see in 2 months whether the Republicans failed at their policy of the past 2 years at making Obama a one-term president rather than working TOGETHER on creating jobs. That's 2 years we'll never get back. Thanks.

      Jobs have been created the last thiry months. Look at the facts sir. Look where jobs were when he took office. what do individuals like you expect? things to change overnight? that's the problem with many... they expect instant results as if anyone can really do more with what this president was left with. But again, that's the only negative propoganda Republicans have to work with... since their own philosophy and solutions are what caused the economic decline in the first place and they have nothing else to run on.

    Darla Moore, recently admitted to Augusta, and Bush were part owners in the Texas Rangers. Darla Moore was credited with removing current Florida Governor, Rick Scott as CEO of HCA because her husband owned HCA.

    Scott left the 7th largest employer in the US with a golden parachute worth about $500 million. Then Bain came in and cleaned up the mess after the 14 felonies and $650 million in fines for Medicare and Medicaid fraud. Why wasn't Rick Scott ever prosecuted and convicted?

    Bain bought HCA for $33 Billion and now it's worth three times that much. What kind of fee do you get for engineering that kind of deal?

    Then Romney has the nerve to apply for $30 BILLION in TARP funds for Bain!

    All the money grubbers of the GOP want to be heir apparent to the Bush crime family especially Romney. Romney has been in on it all this time.

    If your party is using "America is not in decline" as a rallying call. I think it is obvious that your policies are not working. Then there is the slogan "Forward". Polls have shown that people do not like the direction the country is going, This proves that people vote blindly on party lines.

      President Bush did not 600,000 + jobs for 11 months in a row. Another Liberal lie. Take a look at the official government website for the true numbers.

        According to Wikipedia 1.9 million jobs were lost the last 4 months of 2008, that is 475,000 per month...plus read my post above to SomFom. Bush did not exactly have a stellar job creation record...mostly it was a downhill slide from 6 million the day he took office to 12 million unemployed over the 8 years he was in office, and by the time he left office the train wreck was going so fast over the cliff that it took another 9 months of the Bush 2009 budget year to get the brakes to hold.
        Bush's record was so bad neither he or Cheney were at the GOP convention.

    Obama and the democrats ask Americans to be PATIENT? Is OBAMA OUT OF TOUCH! When you have houses being forclosed (thanks to Bill Clinton's policy for this one), can buy the healthiest food for your children because grocery prices are high, can't have vacation for my family, our family income going down, NO economic security.
    PATIENCE? Good for Obama and his family especially his beloved wife, they don't sacrifice. They have chef, they can brew their own beer, they wear expensive suits.. NOT TELL ME WHO IS NOT IN TOUCH with families like me. SORRY BUT ENOUGH OF THIS BLAH BLAH BLAH AND PROMISES.. I am an independent and will be voting for Romney..You lost 6 votes from our small family.

    This President's recovery has been anemic and we the American people have had to suffer through it. President Clinton's speech was fabulous – I remembered why we called him Slick Willy. But President Obama had no new ideas, his speech I had already heard on the stump in the two weeks leading up to the convention. Bottom line is, this President has not made enough progress and for us to give him 4 more years, without any incentive to move to the middle (I know I'm dreaming), would be dangerous to America. It is never a good thing to repeat your mistakes and to give him 4 more years that is what we would be doing. On MSN they were cheering at the 8.1% unemployment rate. What idiots. Don't they realize it only went down because nearly 400,000 dropped out? Their cheering shows that there is a segment of our country who don't get it. They don't get that 400,000 COULD NOT FIND JOBS for a VERY LONG period of time so they gave up. Nothing to cheer about and nothing to be proud of. Yet, if you listen to President Obama and the Democrats, he is doing a fantastic job with what he had to work with. If it were Clinton, he could brag on that. But it isn't. It's Obama and he certainly can't claim he's earned the right to continue. And the folks at MSN are absolutely the most stupid people I have ever had to listen to. Actually, I don't anymore. They are as bad as Soledad O'Brien here on CNN. I can't listen to her without getting a dose of progressive either. All for one, one for all. The problem is, the 'all' is broken. Why don't they wake up and realize the damage that has been done for the sake of their ideology? This American has. No more. Not another 4 years. We need 'hope and change' for a new day in American where we can surpass where we used to be, and with this President we won't get there.

      You honestly think a person like Romney, the alternative, who holds the SAME philosophies basic ideologies, as George W. Bush, WHO CAUSED THE ECONOMIC RECESSION UNDER HIS WATCH, could make the economy better than Obama has done during the last four years? If so, then you are very misinformed and do not have the basic facts straight. The economy is slowly but surely recovering. Change takes time, its not instant, and if you think it is, then you are the one who is not very educated and see things very ignorantly. NO PRESIDENT, as Clinton said, has ever had to deal with what Obama has had to deal with and yet still able to keep things afloat. Educate yourself more and realize that its the Republican ideology that has caused the downfall in the first place. All you have to do it look at the facts. Its that simple and you will see.

    Last Time in 2004/2008 Rebulicans ran on Foreign Policy, now they are running on economy, They won't reveal the truth.
    Just go back and Rewind last two years , their AIM is to JUST BLOCK every bill and hurt Americans so they will VOTE for REPUB as we don't have choice - THIS IS INSANE AND BE CAUTIOUS.
    MAKE SURE WE VOTE AND MAKE SURE MAKE A CHECK LIST WHAT WAS DONE AND WHO IS RESPONSBILE – JUST THINK ABOUT HEALTHCARE – IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO OUR LIVE – OBAMA HAS DONE A GREAT HELP FOR POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS

    JUST THINK OBAMA HAS ACHIEVED WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM REPUB ON ATLEAST ONE BILL – KEEP ASIDE EVERY THING ABOUT HIS RACE AND THINK WHAT HE HAS DONE SOME GREAT ACHIEVEMENTS. IF REPUBLICANS ARE SO WORRIED ABOUT DEBT – HOW CAN THEY WAGE 2 UNFUNDED WARS – JUST GIVE PRIORITY TO PEOPLE LIVES OVER WARS (TACKLE PROVERTY NOT WARS) DEBT INCREASE WITH WARS NOT ENTITLEMENTS

    While i am not an american citizen, it so happens that the person you choose will have power to influence me too, that's the power of that man. As an outsider referee, i just request americans that Obama is a great president and he should be re-elected. He has done everything right and hard in the face of hard right dominated congress of republicans. I have a good image of USA after 10 years of an aweful republican president. I cannot believe that they will vote for a guy who stashes his cash in caymans and swiss banks. i bet he doesn't believe in america, americans!

    The reason growth has been anemic is because we started so far back when Obama took office. How convenient that Robmey said he had a plan for 12 Million new jobs over the next four years when that is what the CBO is projecting anyway. Robmey is a wanker with no new ideas who simply thinks his is entitled to be President. You want to see a return to 2009 elect Robmey. Independent economists may not be effusive in praise for President Obama but they are positively bearish when it comes to Robmeys prescriptions for the economy. Get a grip!

    As an independent the biggest issue I have with President Obama is his lack of leadership skills. To me a leader takes responsiblity when something happens on their watch. Leaders don't assign blame. Americans understand the economy was bad when he became president. We also understand that Iraq war was already coming to an end and Osama location was already on the radar, before President Obama took office. It is fine that President Obama wants to take credit for what Bush left behind in Iraq and intelligence for Osama but with that he has to accept the economy too. Obama controled both houses for 2 years and did nothing to fix the economy.

        @ jean2009 ... you're about as dishonest as Obama and Debbie Wasserman Schultz ... who are both proven liars, thanks to video tape of their previous contradictory statements . You can try to tell Americans that our economy is doing better, but we all are directly experiencing higher prices for everything, on a daily basis ... plus, our money is worth less ... and, will continue to loose value, when Obama prints more dollars. Some day you will wake up to the fact that a two bit community organizer, who never held a real job, doesn't have the experience, or know how to manage our economy ... that's why he increased our debt by 5 1/2 TRILLION DOLLARS, in just 3 1/2 years ... and, Obama stooges, like you, want to reelect him, so he can double down on his failed policies ... BRILLIANT !!!

    At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., a Jewish Democratic Palm Beach county chairman lashed out at evangelical Christians, claiming they aren’t true friends of Jews and that Christians want Jews “slaughtered” to bring about the second coming of Jesus Christ.

    “I’m Jewish,” Palm Beach County Democratic chairman Mark Alan Siegel told Scottie Neil Hughes, a reporter attending the DNC who represents Patriot TV and the Tea Party News Network. “I’m not a fan of any religion of any religion other than Judaism.”

    Hughes asked, “So, you’re not a fan of Christianity?”

    “No, I’m not,” Seigel answered. “The Christians just want us to be there so we can all be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ. They (Christians) are not our friends. They want Israel to pursue policies that are antithetical with its security and existence.”

    Is this what Democrats believe?

    Insanity is voting for the same candidate and expecting a different result.

    If the economy is strong and everyone has a job, people will not need any help from the gov't including how to afford healthcare. Stop relying on the gov't. Individuals should be responsible for their own success but success is only possible if the gov't (current or future) supports it instead of hindering it. Unfortunately, Obama sees it differently: people should be dependent on the gov't making them crippled.

    A country is only as strong as its economy. BTW, I'm an independent, woman voter and will take my chance on Romney this November.

    And just to add creating 50,000 jobs a month is something to be ashamed of. The bigger the recession the bigger the comeback, you can't dispute that. Obama took a bad situation and made it worse. Bush was even better at creating jobs than him until August of 2008
