POTUS's schedule for Thursday 10/11/12

All eyes are on the stage of the Vice Presidential debate tonight in Danville, Kentucky where Joe Biden and Paul Ryan will face-off for the only time in this election. But President Obama will be doing his own thing as he travels to the politically important state of Florida. Today's trip is his 12th trip there. New polls are out in the Sunshine State which have the race virtually tied so with 26 more days until Election Day, the events in south Florida are important. While there, he'll have two campaign events- the first is a big grassroots event at the University of Miami's BankUnited Center. Later, he'll attend a smaller fundraising reception at the JW Marriott in Miami. He'll return to the White House by the time the Vice Presidential debate has ended but chances are he'll be watching aboard Air Force One.

    In a moment of tightening polls and climbing anxiety for Obama's supporters, the president's decision to grant Big Bird a starring role in his campaign this week has presented another reason to reach for the Alka-Seltzer.

    We need a president not a rock star. do the right thing vote in an Achiever R & R America

        OBAMA MAKES MORE DISTURBING CHANGES ... UNDER THE RADAR ...
        President Obama changed military funerals ... instead of traditionally reciting: 'On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation ... Obama has changed it to: 'On behalf of the Secretary of Defense and a grateful nation...'
        ALSO: Obama made policy that NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT A FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE.

        But the Labor Department spokesman said the numbers were skewed by one large state that underreported its data. The spokesman declined to identify the state, but economists believe California is the only state large enough to have such a significant impact on the overall numbers.

      Go to youtube and watch the "seven habits of highly misleading people". It is all about Ryan and his lies.

      Very funny and truthful.

        The biased, partisan, main stream media has consistently promoted and sold Obama to the American public ... while trashing and demonizing his opponents. Along with the brain washed Obama zombies, they have catapulted Obama into the role of 'Fuhrer' ... and of 'Dear Leader'. The Obama Stooges love Obama more than they love America. Obama is destroying America. America is more important than Obama. Obama is expendable and replaceable ... America is not. Save America ... Elect Romney and Ryan in November !!!

    hope Joe does well tonight. He is a decent hard working guy who lives within his means. He doest; try and put on airs or act like a rich guy. He understands the middle class and tells it like it is gaffs and all. Lyin ryan will have to pull a romney and just keep lying to win debate. That seems to be the repo stratigy just keep getting in opponants face and lie lie lie.

      I cannot understan why you constantly give obam a pass. talk about lies the latest is the Libia event which cost 4 Americans thier lifes. Last week on the debate it was every thing from altitude to politeness. Any one with any form of smarts can see this admin just isnt gettin it done. As far as joe he was always a safety net for obammy, there is no way he could be allowed to be pres if somehting happened to obammy. He constantly talks down to people, businesses have shoosed him away. I just dont see him as a leader. Please no excuses or the bush line

      Like President Obama said ... Joe has two sides ... so, he's jojo ... you know the wind up puppet, who makes lots of noise by crashing two little cymbals together.

        The only one with two sides is Robme. Let me see – is it FLIP or FLOP.

      FIRST SOLYNDRA, NOW ABOUND SOLAR: Obama administration feeling heat to explain another failed taxpayer-funded loan guarantee to a bankrupt solar company — and whether officials knew of serious problems with its technology.

    who cares about poll numbers in the debates. Lets try honesty for a change. mitt and ryan lie so much who knows where they stand. Romney changed his position again yesterday, Fools both of them and anyone who votes for these two deserves what they get. Repo party run buy greed and idiots.Forward.

      When Obama was ahead in the polls, that's all we heard about on a daily basis, ad nauseum ... now, that Romney is ahead, you Obama stooges demean the polls ... typical obama stooge hypocrisy and dishonesty.

        Oh really, Lying Ryan is going to tell us how he ran a marathon under 3 hours.

    hey seeing ryan with that dead deer really makes me want to vote for him. Lets play a game during future debates a drink for every lie the repos come up with. All repos flat on their ass 15 minutes into the debates. How funny. We even have to fact check their stories. The murdered seals family asked mitt to shut up with that story. Said he was a disgrace.

        There will be justice for Big Bird and Seamus on election day. Robme – you're fired.

      I guess the American people can expect more Obama lies and cover-ups regarding the Libya embassy murders, of our Ambassador and Navy Seals ... while you obama stooges, and the corrupt mainstream media assist him in the deception.

        This Obama Administration scandal is much, much bigger than Watergate and Watergate resulted in Nixon resigning. It is more proof that the media is in Obama's pocket.
        American Sovereign Soil was invaded and Americans were killed then we had a major cover up by the Obama Administration and still nothing from the media? Is there any wonder why most of these liberal media outlets are quickly losing their ratings? In contrast, MSDNC seems to be doing ok for a liberal show against others like CNN.

      I tried playing that game with Obama speeches but always ended up totally wasted, there's just too many lies.

        Have you been drinking that RED BULL again. Robme lied like a rug during the debate. Just wait till wikileaks and Mother Jones releases his tax returns from 2000 to 2009. We will see how much taxes he has paid.

    The committee pursuing documents on Colorado-based Abound Solar is the same that investigated the half-billion taxpayer loan to Solyndra, whose bankruptcy rocked the Obama administration. Two more Department of Energy-backed companies have since filed for bankruptcy, with Abound Solar being the latest.

      Republicans took 8 years to send our country into an economic mess, started two wars and gave away trillions in tax dollars to the super wealthy. Why were you not complaining about it when Bush was in power.

      Look – people know how the Republicans have sabotaged the economy and are now blaming Obama for not cleaning it up fast enough.

        You need to stay current, obammy has backed 5 or 6 compainies that were friends of his for green jobs,
        All of them have gone or are trying to file bk we are talking billions, his cost alone to fly AF1 and his family vacations are 1.4 bill face it he has no respect for america or its people and yet slow folks like you keep thinking hes great

        ... and, Obama managed to squander SIX TRILLION hard earned tax dollars, in less than 4 years. He spent more in less than 4 years than all the Presidents before him COMBINED.

      According to the Peterson Institute of International Economics, there were a number of reasons for the economic recession. One primary reason cited was the Housing Bubble led by the Democratic Congress. There were a number of other reasons cited. However, they did not mention the tax cuts or wars. Despite the tax cuts, federal revenue continued to increase through 2007. Deficits averaged around 300 billion each year throughout the Bush presidency. Our current deficits average 1300 billion each year during the past 3 years.

      Lionel, your posts are very repetitive. At least try to look into the issues with a little research like some other supporters of the current president. They make valid points unlike you.

    Joe is crazier than an outhouse rat. All he has to do is get his name right and the lefties will claim he won.

    Joe only needs to do three things to win my progressive vote.

    1) Call Ryan a liar.
    2) Call Romney a liar.
    3) Blame Bush.

        The raging debate on Capitol Hill over the Libya consulate attack has put a spotlight on the State Department's security spending, with some questioning whether money spent on electric cars and green-embassy programs could have been put to better use.

        Federal contract records show the department in May spent $108,000 on Chevy Volt charging stations for the American Embassy in Vienna. It apparently was part of a broader program to make diplomatic posts more energy efficient, and the upgrades and electric cars were on full display at a gala a few days after that contract was signed

    Flying first class on Air Force One to a campaign event is the President's only event of the day. Who is paying for that little jaunt? I would hope that the country is being reimbursed for this trip, since it is unequivocally described as "campaign" event without even a hint of "official government" attached to it.
