WASHINGTON (CNN) –President Obama is spending the next two days in Nevada gearing up for his first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign.
A senior campaign official tells CNN the president spent “some time” practicing Sunday night and then “reconvened” his sessions this morning.
The official said Mr. Obama will likely take a break today and make a local stop, but gave no details on when or where he would be going.
The debate prep team is made up of senior campaign advisers and current or former senior White House advisers, including David Axelrod, David Plouffe, Gene Sperling, Ron Klain, Anita Dunn, and Brian Deese.
Does local stop mean, hitting the tables for a little black jack?
PAUL RYAN: I'M GONNA BEAT YOU IN THIS GAME BECAUSE I CAN COUNT THE CARDS, AND NO I DON'T HAVE TIME TO EXPLAIN THE MATH TO YOU.
OUR AMBASSADOR DIED, AND OBAMA LIED !!!
Obama conned the American people, in order to grab power. Much of the money has gone to Obama cronies, to buy campaign contributions, and to buy Obama votes. Obama's entire Presidency has been a campaign for reelection. Obama is destroying America. If he gets a second term, he will finish the job. Obama, and the Obama stooges love Obama more than they love America. America is more important than Obama. Obama is expendable, and replaceable ... America is not. In November, save America ... Dump Obama !!!
Practicing? I guess it does take a bit of practice to say "Bush's fault" and keep a straight face.
TO WHICH MITT ROMNEY REPLIES, "IF IT'S ALL BUSH'S FAULT, THEN WHY HAVE HIRED ALL THESE BUSH PEOPLE? RIDDLE ME THAT!"
47% of us dont' care about us ... like obama, they only care about themselves, even if it's at the cost of us ... and at the cost of the U.S. !!! It may not be politically correct, but it's true !!!
So, Howard, our veterans of all foreign wars collecting on the benefits that were promised them don't care about our country? The senior citizens who worked their whole lives paying into Social Security and now are collecting on the payments they made throughout their lives, don't care about America??(There are PLENTY OF REPUBLICANS IN THAT GROUP do they know you are talking about them?)
The richest company IN THE WORLD aka EXXON MOBILE has rec'd taxpayer subsides for years, and years, and years for ALL OF THEIR OPERATING COSTS –Are they included in your tirade (I hope so, because they totally deserve the dissing)?? BUT WAIT-the Republicans VOTED DOWN efforts to end the subsides!! So-doesn't that leave them on the list for lifetime users of WELFARE WHO DON"T CARE ABOUT US?? I mean, golly-gee they charge us what ever they want at the pump IT"S PURE TYRANNY!! It costs a us fortune for all the SHIPPING LANES OUR NAVY PROTECTS. Oh, wait, they contribute to candidates.
Howard, I keep telling you, you ain't helpin' Mitt here, especially since Mitt can't help himself. You are ready to vote for who? For what? They haven't given you any information on anything. Yet, you rah-rah-rah yourself silly for them everyday. You might as well be following a GHOST! AIR MAN. A guy that cannot stay on any message for any length of time. Walking a tightrope to please the tea party and the Big Guns shooting themselves in the foot everyday called the GOP.
You're getting paid for this gig, right?
@ Cynthia L ... If Obama really cared about our military ... he wouldn't return terrorist combatants back to the battle field to kill our soldiers ... if Obama really cared about our military ... he wouldn't cut their budget ... he wouldn't suppress their votes, by holding back their absentee ballots ... he would help our military fight to WIN ... he would make sure our embassy guards are armed with weapons that are loaded with live ammo ... he wouldn't go to campaign events, while they are dying ... he wouldn't take credit for their brave acts ... he wouldn't use them for photo ops ... so, Cynthia ... stop with the same old Obama B.S. !!!
COME TO AMERICA AND TAX PAYERS WILL FEED YOU.
Under Obama administration partnership with Mexico,
number of non-citizens in US using food stamps and similar programs has more than doubled.
Again lacking in true facts according to the Carsey Institute research 75% of those on food stamps are white, elderly, or disabled, and the rural poor.
Try again...but the next time use facts..
jean ... you must be talking about the same whites and elderly who have paid MOST of America's taxes, and contributed MOST to building America, over the past 235 years ... now, that's a fact ... even if it's not politically correct.
Okay, so who are the other 25 percent on food stamps? We have eliminated the elderly, the rural poor and the disabled. So, who is left? Twenty five percent of 46 million is about 11.5 million people.
(Don't you hate it when your posts jumps around?)
Top three Obama answers.
1) Its Bush's fault.
2) Its Congress' fault
3) Its the spontaeous protesters fault.
TOP MITT ROMNEY ANSWER:
obama still believes he can sway American voters... Bob Woodwards' new book 'The Price of Politics' quoted obama making this statement: "I have great sway with the American people, I'll convince them". Barry/barack is a narcissist who talks in lofty speak...the question is: Has America learned anything these past four years? I hope so, those who can DO, those who can't soap box and endless campaign...
Tomorrow is early election day in Ohio.
Obama -Biden 2012!
Why does he need to stay out here and restrict our air space for 30 mile radius? Traffic not any better either. All Presidents need security but why can't he practice at home?
One specific problem was for the Grand Canyon Helicopters. We have great weather now but they have all been grounded. Lots of refunds, lost business. One company is busing the people to another airport just to not take losses.........
Vegas is just too small to accommodate a President visit to our airport without massive traffic. Why can't he fly to our very nearby Nellis Air force Base? Then our tourism based airport wouldn't shut down for days at a time.
So George Bush and Dick Cheney were tying up traffic in 2004. Did you expect them to stay home?
Get over it and get a life!
because...he is a very sick sick narcissistic. Remember Regan quit golfing when he found it was to dangerous for his SS detail...Bush was very careful too. This guy came from a a cheap suit and Kenyan shoes...don't have an American brain, just dont think like we do... good riddence obama!
DUBYA TOOK MORE VACATIONS THAN ANYONE. YOU CAN CHECK OUT HIS WORN OUT COWBOY BOOTS IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME.
All the president has to do is tell the truth and explaine his planes simply and try and not laugh at looney mitt the twitt. Mitt on the other hand has to look like the poll up his butt insn't really there and that he really really cares about the 47% he said he didn't care about. And lie without us catching on . If all else maybe he can make a bet with the president. I know Zing him yeah ! I bet he has great delivery. Forward
You libs can't say anything without calling people names, making stuff up and trying to talk down to people. We never seem to see people like you post the accomplishments of Obama.
BTW, how do you feel about Throbbing Member 2012 being on your side??
So you prorve your point by calling people names....how does that work?
Here are just a few of the 200 accompishments of President Obama you can find posted online.
Passed Health Care Reform
Passed the Stimulus
Passed Wall Street Reform
Ended the War in Iraq
Began Draw Down of War in Afghanistan
Eliminated Osama bin laden
Turned Around the U. S. Auto Industry
Repealed “Don’t ask Don’t Tell”
Toppled Moammar Gaddafi
Kicked Banks Out of the Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant
Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards
Increased Support for Veterans
Signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act
Polls open today in Ohio.
If you think "Lib" is calling you a name I do not understand why you think that. That is what you are, isn't it? If you mean "Throbbing Member 2012" that is his name. IMO, he has earned that name with many, many ignorant posts. Even you would have to admit that.
I'll address your point in other posts.
Obamacare, Stimulus, Bailout Of GM, Recapitalized banks, Student Loan Program – cost and is costing this country billions and billions and billions of dollars and the jury is still out on all of them. Government takeover of business never ends as planned and neither does massive government regulations and rules. Student loans are out of control both in relation to the cost of this massive government program and the debt student owe. Obamacare? billions and billions of taxes are about to hit us. GM should have gone chapter 11, similar to the airlines.
Bottom line Jean. You like big BIG government and you want big BIG government to take care of you and everyone else.
One more then I will stop (unless you want me to address every single point). Lilly Ledbetter – the basis for one of Obama's biggest lies. Do you really think women make .70 on the dollar as compared to a man? I don't. The big lie stems from them using census data.
For example – say you and I do the same work for the same hourly rate. Then say I worked 15% more OT than you. That gives me about 30% more reporting income than you. Therefore, using census data, even though we make the same money, the census data used shows I make more actual money. I provided one simple example, but many things come into play when you only consider bottom line pay. For examples – leaves of absence, part-time hours vs full time, etc.
THE LAW IS NOT ABOUT WHETHER THERE IS UNEQUAL PAY OR NOT, IT IS ABOUT PREVENTING IT. JUST LIKE THOSE VOTER ID LAWS YOU LOVE SO MUCH.
@ judy ... "All the President has to do is tell the truth" ... you say. Well that would be a novel idea, and a refreshing change form all the lies and B.S. he has been laying on the American people ... in his desperate attempt to hold onto power ... at ANY COST. Unfortunately, obama's army of brain washed obama stooges, like you, keep assisting him, in his ongoing deception.
Obama is destroying America. You obama stooges love obama more than you love America. Obama is expendable and replaceable ... America is not. Save America ... Dump obama in Novembe !!!
Where 200? you forget 6tr. debt, 8.2 % out of work, income -$4250 per family, 48 mil on food stamp, poverty way up, broil, 4 diplomat killed, Al kiyda way in life. You want more?
He know how bla-bla-bla- and nothing else. The worst president ever,
MAYBE THEY COUNTED THAT ONE WOMAN WHO WON THE LOTTERY 11.5 MILLION TIMES? THE POOR WOMAN IS DEAD NOW SO, I GUESS THERE'S NOBODY ELSE. /JK
SERIOUSLY THOUGH, SUCH A LARGE CHUNK CANNOT BE ANYTHING ELSE THAN PEOPLE WHO QUALIFIED FOR THE PROGRAM, PROBABLY LIKE THE UNEMPLOYED, THE WORKING POOR IN URBAN AREAS, SINGLE PARENTS, ETC.
Who cares. The only debate that will matter are the 3 he has with Romney. He could do great against Kerry and stink against Romney and vice versa.
funny thing is Nevada is a mess, one of the highest jobless rates in the country...obama is there practicing and from what my Vegas friends say they are sick of this...he has air travel and car travel really curtailed all the way to the Grand Canyon...the cost of this little dog and pony show is costing millions and really enraging the voters down there...what a dope!
again...it proves obama is a legend in his own mind...hahaha
Apparently not enough practice, he got schooled !!!! Best line of the night, Romney to Obama,,"What did you just say?"....hysterical......
Hello ??? Where is everyone?? Little quite today after that schalacking Obama took last night………
Even CNN said Romney won! Yet NO story? There are two more debates to go. Th e president is NOT going to make tha mistake of being unprepared again. I was watching the taling heads last night after the debate flipping between Fox and CNN. Of course the right thought Romney won and the Left thought Obama won. Carviille said it looked like Obama was prepared for a conversation at a town hall meeting. Even Bill Maher spouted how he thought the prez needed a teleprompter.
The reason I point these two out is while everybody else (pretty much) was toeing the party line, these two didn't (I am NO fan of Maher but do respect Carville). Romeny won last night but again, I do expect a different performance by the president next time! WHERE IS THE STORY, CNN?. YOUIR OWN FOLKS SAID ROMNEY WON! COME ON!!
Al Gore just informed us on why Obama took a beatdown last night.......was the altitude, didn't have time to adjust, no kidding, can't make this stuff up........
