President Obama is in the Las Vegas area preparing for tomorrow night's debate in Denver. According to Jen Psaki, campaign spokeswoman, the president is working to keep his answers brief, "One of the main focuses is to make sure he's sharpening his answers and shortening the time it takes to make them".
Obama took a brief break yesterday. He stopped by his Henderson campaign field office to deliver some pizza and call supporters. The president will head to Denver for the debate on Wednesday afternoon.

Press Gaggle by Press Secretary Jay Carney
An Obama administration appointee has resigned in connection with another bombshell report detailing the waste of taxpayer money at feel-good conferences - this time, at a pair of Veterans Affairs summits in Orlando that cost more than $6 million.
Great job Mr. President. As you can see, Obama is for the average guy and the middle class.
The Republicans left him with an economic mess, two wars and $5 trillion in tax give aways to the super wealthy. Now they are complaining that Obama did not clean it up fast enough.
Robme, Juan Percent and Lying Ryan are going to be toast. They will throw their garbage and lies at him but the American people are not going to buy it this time Repubtards.
Lionel – Obama is one of those millionaires you libs like to abuse on a daily basis – but you follow this millionaire blindly and seem to forget who he really supports. He is for anyone who donates to his campaign i.e. green energy types who got millions, unions who got millions, GM – who got billions, billions in taxes on you and me with Obamacare. Then we have the Bush tax cuts Obama wants to expire. We are now seeing reports that middle class people will get killed in taxes if Obama does what he wants with the Bush taxes.
You say he has "done a good job". I just listed several reasons why he has not done a good job.
CAN YOU LIST ONE THING THAT HE HAS DONE A GOOD JOB WITH?
And, BTW, do not list equal pay for women. The gig is up on that one since we found out census data was being "used" by Obama's people who were putting out this bad information. Here is an actual example that was given on how they came up with "women make 70 cents on the dollar compared to a man". They looked at a man and woman making the same money hourly. The man traveled more and worked more OT and he made 30% more because of it. In a libs mind my example (and Obama's) shows the man making 30% more money for the same job. AND YOU BLIND LIBS FALL FOR THIS STUFF OBAMA TELLS YOU? How dumb can you be.
Have you been siffing airplane glue again?
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 !!!
TO ALL YOU OBAMA STOOGES ... Your blind devotion to 'Dear Leader' ... your Fuhrer, is touching ... but it's time for you to leave the Obama cult. Defending Obama, who lost, and who can't loose like a good sport, just makes you ALL look like sore loosers. Obama was given a chance ... and, in the past 4 years, he has nearly destroyed America. NOW, it's time for Barack and Michelle to abdicate their throne, so Mitt Romney can begin repairing the excessive damage caused by Obama's terrible policies. Good bye Barack, Michelle, Nancy, Harry, Jarret, and Axelrod, and all the unelected czars ... and, GOOD RIDDANCE TO YOU ALL ... I'm sure you all will find another way to pick the pockets of hard working Americans !!!
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 !!!
get a grip – shall we talk about Bush's horrible mistakes costing THOUSANDS of lives? Or maybe Willard's incompetence and tax evasion costing the U.S. taxpayers MILLIONS of dollars. The right wing haters are gonna hate and are now getting desperatei
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, in an interview with Fox News, suggested the Obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the deadly consulate attack in Libya to fit a convenient story line, that it was spontaneous violence and not pre-meditated terrorism.
The Repo loonies are at it again with their lies and spin. Don't believe it people.
Look at how Mitt the Twit has performed the last few months. Do not give the keys to the White House to the folks who ran the economy into the ground. Amen...
@ LY'IN L ...
LOOK HOW OBAMA HAS PERFORMED OVER THE PAST 4 YEARS !!! OUR COUNTRY IS IN SHAMBLES. OUR POPULATION IS POLARIZED. OUR ECONOMY IS ALMOST BANKRUPT. OUR FOREIGN POLICY IS A SICK JOKE.
DON'T BE FOOLED BY OBAMA'S EMPTY PROMISES AGAIN ... SAVE AMERICA ... DUMP OBAMA IN NOVEMBER !!!
For the benefit of John:
The country was in shambles when Obama entered office.
Today it looks much better....stock market up, jobs not bleeding at the rate of 750,000 per month, American auto industry is rebounding, jobs situation improving, home prices up, foreclosures down, home sales increasing, Iraq War ended, Osama bin Laden dead, DADT passed...how many more of the 200 accomplishments do you need repeated today?
Green energy is the future.....Department of Energy Solyndra Timeline:
2005- DOE Title XVII Loan Program intiated.
2006- 12/28/2006- Solyndra submitts loan application
2007- 10/4/2007 DOE select Solyndra and 14 other companies to submit full applications.
2008-12/4/2008 DOE gives go ahead to approve Solyndra loan in Jan 2009.
2009- 1/15/2009 DOE approves Solyndra loan...4 days before President Obama's inauguration.
Affordable Health Care Act tax is only on those who refuse to purchase health insurance.
Potat "o" = Potat "a"
Romneycare...it is a mandated fine
The Afforable Care Act (by SCOTUS).... it is a penalty tax
Or the you sell your home at a $525,000 profit tax you pay $950. dollars if your income is over $325,000.
Heh! If I can sell my condo for $525,000 more than I paid for it....I'll pay the $950. gladly.
For the benefit of John & Howard...waiting for the moderator.
*YAWN* LET US KNOW WHEN YOU ACTUALLY HAVE SOMETHING CONCLUSIVE FROM THE FBI. POLITICIANS ACCUSING POLITICIANS OF BEING POLITICAL, DURING AN ELECTION YEAR, ARE ABOUT AS CREDIBLE AS A REPLACEMENT NFL REFS. I'M SURPRISED CONGRESS HASN'T STARTED TALKING IMPEACHMENT YET. I GUESS EVEN STUPIDITY HAS ITS LIMITS.
Hey Mitt give it a rest – we know its you using Roscoe's name!
A new survey shows Mitt Romney with a commanding lead over President Barack Obama among doctors, with Obamacare helping to sway their votes.
and your source would be?
Your source that Obammy isnt a commie ???, your source obammy isnt inept???your source obammy didnt cover fast & furious, your source AMBASSADOR killed and Obammy didnt know it was a terriost attack??? i guess you get the picture, OBAMMY = FAILURE
Rosco, Dimwit, Howard and other Repo loonies are paid conservative trools.
This is where your Republican fundraising dollars have gone to.
Lonlon has a crush on obammy
Ha Ha Ha Rosco – you have a crush on Mitt the Twit, the draft dodger, tax evader. Or is it Lying Ryan.
Oh lonlon its okay your a sissy, just like obammy, sissy
Huffing gas still?
We who oppose obama, don't get pay offs ... like Obama is paying off voters with 'free phones' (over a million GIVEN out in Ohio, at tax payer's expense) ... or, like those who get waiver' (like to unions, and other obama cronie)s ... or, greasing the palms of Federal workers ... or like 1/2 of Americans, who don't pay taxes, carried by the 1/2 that do, or, giving food stamps to illegals, or, taking the requirement to look for a job, out of getting Welfare ... and, the list is too long to include here ...
How many times do I have to post the information about the Telecommunications Act of 1996?
Obviously it is not sinking in....since you still want to post that lame topic which has been claimed a "pants on fire" epic.
Howard-Facts are something you always lack. Your posts consist of whatever is the latest hoax email circulating the web that you can latch onto...but in the end it is the facts that bring you down. Facts are a mighty tool!
The Telecommunications Bill of 1996 is the legistation that included legistation about cell-phone and other electronic access for all people who need it including those on Indian Reservations, the elderly, and the poor. To qualify the person's income needs to be below 135% of the poverty level. These basic phones with limited minutes are provided through grants from the Universal Service Fund which is a non-profit independent corporation serving several providers. The first phones provided were through LifeLine in 1997, but similar programs existed as early as 1985 (REAGAN ERA). The 1996 Act program was enhanced in 2005 under the Bush Administration, and the first cell phones were provided through LifeLine, Safe Link, Virgin (Assurance Mobile), and others and it started in full force during 2008. .
This law includes sections that had everyone with old analog TV's buying a digital converter so their old TV would still work after February 2009, the updated regulations also had public libraries putting in computers available for public use. The Tellecommunications Bill of 1996, actually built on previous communications bills which regulate the FCC. It updated laws passed during the terms of Franklin Roosevelt (Communications Act of 1934) and Woodrow Wilson. So do you call it a "Wilson phone"?
You can actually read not just one but several articles on this subject online...and you probably know that but you seem to enjoy posting "misinformation". (*Notice my use of a kinder term)
You could also read....Is the Bush Administration Finally Getting Serious About Broadband? 4/28/2004
Well Bush did, and it is policy that really brought into play what you should be calling "Bush phones".
I for one approve of his move, since if you expect poor people to be able to call 911 or to find a job, a phone is as much a necessity as computer access.
Jean2009, OK we get it, you like what President Reagan and President Bush did.
Tuesday! Drone kill list review day with the campaign manager. Lots of spontaneous decisions today..
Hey!! Since their in Nevada.., maybe Nimrod will roll the dice for which target is the most politically correct killing.
I have never seen an election so clearly contested for what America has been against what libs want America to be. In terms of this experiment called "America" this is a critical time. Obama was right about one thing – do we take the blue pill or the red pill.
Repubs and Independents – when you are in the voting booth remember these words – You're here because you know there is something wrong. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it since at least the Obamacare non-debate. There is something wrong in America. You don't know exactly what it is, but it is there and you know it is...
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, YOUR PARTY HAS GONE SO FAR RIGHT THAT EVERYONE TO THE LEFT OF THEM LOOKS LIKE A COMMIE. FOOD FOR THOUGHT.
thanks for helping to make my point.
Iowa, sure the Prez may be leading here, but here is the facts:
The big electoral votes are clustered in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. The President is leading in ALL FOUR. He only needs 2 or 3 of these to win. M!tt cannot win without taking THREE of these and he leads in ZERO.
Its not EVEN close.
Amen to that Don. Republicans are going to try to manufacture their own take on this.
Ohio, Virgina and Florida will stay in the President's column. Americans can see what the Republicans have done by sabotaging the economic recovery and then blaming Obama for not cleaning up their mess fast enough. The only ones who does not see this is Faux News.
lonlon has an Obammy doll he cuddles !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rosco has been drinking RED BULL all night. Ha Ha Ha
lonlon not very original comebacks, inept just like obammy
lonlon when obammy goes off the cliff please follow him, it will give you two a certain closeness
The only poll that counts is election day, if you cant look around and see what a crappy job Obammy has done than you are just plain stupid, it has gotten worse. no matter how you spin it it has gotten worse. so your retort will be point and blame, of course
You got that one right Rosco. That is the only poll that matters and you will see that you are wrong and have wasted your time posting lies on here.
You need to go to Faux News to post your ridiculous comments. Oh Yeah, I forgot, they do not allow comments to be posted. Now who is the communist and who is the democrat.
Whatever left of pizza, please take home to Chicago.
romney can not manage his own campaign so how can he run a country.He had to borrow money. I guess idiots like rosco and dimwit believe his lies but the rest of us don't voter registration suspended by republicans in 5 swing states because company they used caught cheating. Voter fraud. I guesss thats why the repos pushed so hard for reform. Against themselves. What idiots. Ha Ha Ha . Idiots had no backup company. Dufus at large. Forward 2012. Take your money overseas mitt maybe china will back you. Unpatriotic troll
Your man less arent ya ???? your also a very angry person
to Judy. Looks to me you very angry. You probably single. You need man for .... good...... This is your problem.
To mikle, it looks to me that you are very bad at grammar. You are probably asian. You need a woman to tell you about gender equality and how it is in bad taste to infer that a user named judy is a woman and therefore is not welcome to express anger and needs to have a man next to her to stop her from expressing her opinions. This is your problem.
Whoa, it must be "that time of the month".
Indeed Kool-Aid Police you are correct. It is that time of the month where political debates happen and people then express their opinions. I would have thought you read what this article was about and known this. What I think you might find interesting is that these specific out-pourings of opinions from the multitudes about politicians running for president do not occur every month and only happen every four years.
Judy its clear you dont have a man and are an angry little person
Rosco, it's clear you have a small penis and insult people on the internet to make yourself feel better.
More corrupt than Richard Nixon, weaker than Jimmy Carter, more inept than Calvin Coolidge...Obama is the worst president ever to hold office. Why does he even have a shot this November. It makes no sense!
If a $16 trillion debt wasn't enough for taxpayers to lose sleep over, the Obama administration has offered to pick up the check - at taxpayer expense - for legal costs associated with defense industry layoffs should automatic Pentagon cuts be triggered.
more good work by obammy not !!!!
If Obama gets re-elected the debt will reach $23trillion easily. He didn't even break a sweat adding $5trillion.
I think Nevada's going to swing blue regardless of an Obama visit, and I think this country might start getting bluer by the day. I don't think the Republicans are going to make the cut in their current form; I think they're a dying breed, and their hateful speech is tantamount to their violent death throes. Check out this guide for an idea of how hopeless it might be for Republicans:
Diplomats asked repeatedly for more security before Libya attack, lawmakers claim
Not according to Jalah Bushala who attended a meeting that advised those at the consulate of the deteriorating security situation. His statement was: "That at no time did the American's request more security from the host nation, nor did they offer it."
And according to the State Department no request was sent up the chain of command requesting that the Consulate be closed.
As if the State Dept will be honest.
And ill close gitmo, ill have unemp under 6% or wont run, ill cut deficet in half or wont run Grow up for christ sake
did Mz clinton ever present those Rose Law firm documents? You may remember the documents, the ones they said she destroyed concerning White Water. Oh she must have, how could a sitting Sec of State be guilty of obstruction of Justice and fraud and conspiracy? And, the American people are supposed to believe anything that comes out of her mouth. NOT!
Yep, that is what he said. Does this mean there was some concern over security prior to 911? Who was in attendance during this meeting? Who was aware of the security threat? Unfortunately, there is still too many unknowns to draw conclusion. At the moment, I will give the President the benefit of the doubt. But I would still like to what happened.
George W. Bush ...
."I promise to get Osama bin Laden"....
" I promise the Federal Government which is the largest polluter, will comply by all environmental laws."
The Department of Defense requested the Federal Government exempt it from environmental regulations.
"There are 43 million uninsured Americans we will make health insurance more affordable."
(At the end of 2 years that number had increased by 4 million and insurance premiums had increased 12%.)
"We will fully fund the Pell Grant at $5,100."
For the YR education budget 2005 the Pell Grant was frozen at $4,050.
"By far the vast majority of tax cuts will be aimed at the bottom end of the spectrum Tax benefits will focus on the moderate and low income families"
The top 20% received 69.8% of the tax cuts.
And how does this justify what the President is doing now?
Gee Caramon you don't even read all the items posted on CNN? The CNN article was posted on their security blog dated 9/20/2012 ....Type in: Jalal Bushala February 17th Brigade that should bring up the article by Elise Labott.
Once agian, your defense of Obama is ....." but Bush"
The article also stated that the meeting took place 3 days before the attack.
Come On Caramon ...How long after the fact was it before someone informed you there were.... No WMD?
Although I'm not and never was a Bush fan...I for one give him the benefit of the doubt that he honestly didn't know.
The CIA and the State Department may have operatives...but they do not have a crystal ball.
Jean, I have already stated that I am giving the President the benefit of the doubt. But, once again, you are trying to justify the President's actions with Bush did it. I simply stated I want more information about what happened before I decide.
My thinking is those on site did not kick the information up the chain quickly enough, and did not follow the protocal of not staying at the location after dark. Then you have to consider the mind-set of people working in these locations.
I noted the one post by someone in that area which states: "20 guys with AK47's is just another day at the office in the Middle East"
I would agree. Right now there is simply too many people focused on conclusions without all of the facts. Of course, the election is 5 weeks away with both sides trying to score points. We will just have to wait and see. However, I suspect we will not know until after the election.
Caramon It is possible none of us will ever know, since those who would know for certain are now dead.
well, they are looking for the paper/email trail...just ask Mz clinton, the one who hid the Rose Law Firm's billing records, that majically turned up later...when it was evident she was facing obstruction of justice, fraud, and perjury charges...can't believe shes' still around, tells you something about the obama administrations (if you can call it that)
Congressional Republicans blocked funding for embassy security....Anyone surprised...anyone. No, Didn't think so.
Polls open in Ohio the waiting line took about an hour.
You voted straight Republican, right?
I doubt many Republicans were elected today.
The Columbus Dispatch -right wing rag....gives their latest poll at 51% Obama -Biden and 42% Romney-Ryan.
I agree Jean. In fact I would believe that no Republicans were elected today. The main voting in Ohio is still November 6 when the election ends.
Vote early, vote often. It's the Liberal way.
Truly amazing you totally just dont get it, what does bush have to do with obammys lies why do people like this loser??? i dont get it, face obammy he is satan
Everytime they blink, they blame Bush but their defense of Obama is Bush. That's why I call it "But Bush"!
Because Bush is the reason we are where we are today. History matters it is Facts and Dates.... iWhat has gone before is why you are where you are today...time is not an encapsulated .... to quote Shakespeare's Tempest "the past is prologue". Time does not start and stop on your whim, or at your convenience.
Where's my pizza? My tax dollars paid for them.
Frank campaign dollars paid for the pizza....I'm glad to know you donated....LOL!
they also bought 1,000,000 cell phones in Ohio...or 1,000,000 votes who probably wont know how to complete a vote card anyway.
YEAH, WE WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE A PHONE SO THEY CAN CALL IN WHEN THE REPUBLITARDS COMMIT VOTER FRAUD AGAIN.
I see the libs are still on Bush...funny. Oh, the WMD argument is back too...just remember the only countries not behind us in that war were France, Italy, and Germany...they were all making money in Libyia...and yes, they all thought there were WMDs and they all felt the need to keep the middleast on an even keel, unlike the obama mob...and the results speak for themselves.
Today political donations are going for the GOP 3 to 1...obama is finished, the press just has not wanted to report as such. BO is circling the drain and it leeds back to the chicago sewers...but he will retire to Hawaii or Indonesia.
IF ONLY MONEY CAN SOLVE ALL OUR POLITICAL PROBLEMS. OH WAIT... MONEY CAUSES SOME OF OUR POLITICAL PROBLEMS.
IF YOU DON'T THINK BUSH IS RELEVANT WHEN YOU ACCUSE THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION OF A COVER UP, THEN YOU MUST BE A REPUBLITARD.
NO ONE should forget Bush. I know, I know, you like to think we shouldn't but, WE SHALL CONTINUE to remember Bush. Bush's people dominate Mitt Romney's campaign big-wig advisors – HOW CAN WE FORGET BUSH?? THEY WON'T LET US!! Karl Rove seems to think we desire his services AFTER BUSH. He even operates a so-called Charity Organization called CROSSROADS GPS and runs it as a TAX-EXEMPT NON-PROFIT that's not supposed to contribute to campaigns because of their tax-exempt status. I guess, him being Karl Rove TODAY is NOT SUPPOSED to remind us of the slimey person he was in the BUSH ADMINISTRATION.
BUSH'S FINGERPRINTS ARE ALL OVER EVERY BAD MEMORY OF BAD GOVERNANCE 4 SHORT YEARS AGO.
I BLAME BUSH AND THE REPUBLICANS for the worst PRESIDENTCY and THE WORST CONGRESS this nation has ever experience.
Go ahead and try and work your magic for Karl Rove and the KOCH BROS. little hobby called AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY. Twist the FREE ELCTIONS TO YOUR WHIMS . YOU WILL NEVER LIVE BUSH DOWN. NEVER.....
you rage on President Bush, make excuses for obama and inflate his record....and, well, you have credibility. hahahaha
It is either Bush and Obama's fault or neither for the current state of this country. Not just Bush. Four years with little improvement is a joke. Unlike Clinton, he learned nothing from the midterm election. He keeps on being the Chicago Liberal that he has always been.
SO THERE IS IMPROVEMENT? THAT'S FUNNY BECAUSE ALL THIS TIME YOU REPUBLITARDS KEEP SAYING HE MADE IT WORSE. CAN'T SEEM TO GET YOUR STORY STRAIGHT, TYPICAL REPUBLITARDS.
Romney and Ryan ...... Laurel and Hardy of the 2102 Presidential campaign
Romney ........ No honesty no integrity
Romneyhood ........ Give to the Rich take from the poor
CONGRATS TO ROMNEY FOR A HUGE WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After this debate I have changed my mind. I'm voting for Romney/Ryan.
Sorry Obama but Obamacare was in fact NOT bipartisan. It was extremely partisan.
You LIED again Obama.
MITT WINS...obama/sorrento cowers and connives... we are going to have an adult leader soon...God Bless America.
