Obama in Nevada

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.

    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.

        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 !!!

    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.

        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.

        @Howard
        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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

        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.

        " 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.

        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.

        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.

        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.

      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.

        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.

    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.....

    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.

    October 2, 2012 at 7:43 pm |
    • DEcember 2012

      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.
