(CNN) – It's the kind of feverish schedule that is usually reserved for the final days of a presidential campaign: a two-day coast-to-coast swing that includes stops in eight states, multiple television interviews, and a redeye flight on Air Force One.
But President Obama isn't waiting for the last weekend of the campaign to up his pace to an all out sprint, a likely reflection of just how close he and his aides believe this race now stands with just under two weeks until Election Day.
"This is the first stop on our 48-hour fly around, campaign marathon extravaganza," a smiling Obama told supporters at his first stop in Davenport Iowa earlier Wednesday.
think there was a typo, should of read......... "4 year fly around, campaign marathon extravaganza"
all nighter? What no golf? Will this guy ever get around to doing his job? Ever? I hope not...everything he touches is a mess...let him do the obama-strut right back to chicago...and good riddence!
You mean the job Bush didn't do? You mean clean up the mess the GOP left us? You mean end the war we were lied to about? You mean get the people who where responsible for 9/11? You mean that job? LOL The only reason he'll go back to Chicago is for his re-election at Grant Park again. And you hate it dont you? A BLACK man in charge. A BLACK man at the highest postion in the land. A BLACK man who will indeed be POTUS again. You hate it huh?
Obama 2012 folks!
After being in office for 4 years, two of which he had a solid dem majority, he just didn't get the job done. He said he would, but he did not. Now you want 4 more years of the same? I don't think so...
BTW, for you to use the fact that he is black makes you just like any other racist. Are you telling us if we disagree with his poor policies we are against black people? If that is what you think you are a complete idiot.
Bush wasn't the best, but OBAMA had 4 years and made the economy and the safety of our country worse. Black, white or yellow? Does it really matter? I think with your comment of insulting the other writer, you are indeed the racist here that needs to flash out the race card to defend a man that has not done a good job thus far. If Obama were white, I would still have the same opinion of him: HE NEEDS TO PACK UP AND LEAVE THE WHITE HOUSE!
You forgot to mention that I hate peanut farmers. I wasn't too thrilled with the policies of Jimmy Carter.
Say what you want Johnny. The fact is he's BLACK & in charge. And you can't stand it. What's racist is still believing it in your heart even though you're so scared to say it out load...lol How sill of you to forget that we had a financial crisis on day one of his term. Banks going broke, car companies in serious trouble. While the GOP met that same day planning on doing everything they can to stop him from success...lol Instead of saying everything he touches is a mess, how about telling the truth and saying everything he's touched was already a mess. And you want to go back to the same policies that got us there as long as a BLACK man isn't in complete control of the highest seat in the land. Deal with it. Say what you mean, you'll feel better about yourself. Keeping all that anger in wont help you or your family. Good thing is....."Obama Care covers all preexisting conditions"
Obama 2012 Johnny!
1. He is HALF BLACK
2. You sound like a slobbering racist!
In response to JOHN... Are you kidding me? So you think Romney's backward policies will help this country make progress?? The same policies that Bush sanctioned that got us into trouble in the first place? Romney now proposes that he can get to a balanced budget within 8 -10 years.... Funny how it will take him 8 years, but Obama was expected to balance and turn it around within 4??? Also, Romney flip flops on his stance and policies depending on which way the wind blows.... now he even endorses many of Obama's policies. Romney still is unable to articulate exactly what his plan is or how he will accomplish it.. Anyone supporting someone so elusive, indecisive and shady is the idiot.
SteveO – I remember you – You know better...LOL
I KNOW BETTER AND I AM NOT EVEN BLACK. I CAN DEFINITELY SEE WHERE BLKPWR817 IS COMING FROM AND ANYONE WHO DENIES IT IS EITHER EXTREMELY NAIVE OR IS LYING TO THEMSELVES. WHAT THE HELL DOES IT MATTER IF HE IS HALF-BLACK? HE SURE LOOKS BLACK TO ME! I THINK HE PASSES THE SCOTT BROWN RACE DETECTOR.
ALL RACE BAITING ASIDE, ALTHOUGH FEWER, THERE ARE MANY WHITE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT OBAMA IN THE UPPER MIDWEST AND THAT INCLUDES THE CRUCIAL STATES OF OHIO AND IOWA WHERE THE MINORITY VOTE IS STILL WELL, A MINORITY. BUT YES, IT IS NO SECRET THAT OBAMA HAS BROKEN THE MOLD OF WINNING A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WHILE NOT GETTING THE WHITE MAJORITY VOTE. HE CAN STILL DO IT AGAIN. WHY DO YOU THINK THERE IS SUCH A RUSH TO CHANGE VOTER RULES?
THE REPUBLICANS FAILED TO SEE THE TIDE COMING, OR AT LEAST THEY REACTED BY KICKING AND SCREAMING. OBAMA IS JUST THE BEGINNING. WELCOME TO THE REAL AMERICA.
You mean it was okay for Bush to create the worst world disaster in 8 years and Obama only has 4 to clean up Bush's mess and deal with the increased affects. With what Obama has done in 4 years it is simply amazing, but republicans have their head in the sand as usual, trying to fight progress. The republicans just won't stop destoying our country even with a DEM president in office, They use people's money and their followers foolishly give it to them. LOL
The problem is that there are a number of people who believe racism is at the root of any disagreement with the President. Even Hilary once made this claim in 2008 concerning claims against her husband. I disagreed with policies of Jimmy Carter. Yet, I wasn't a racist. I disagreed with the policies of Bill Clinton and his extracurricular activities. Yet I wasn't a racist. I disagree with the current President. Suddenly I am a racist. Could it possibly be that I simply disagree with the policies? It almost seems as though we are no longer allowed to disagree with Liberal policies because it is viewed as racism.
Obama stayed up all night to campaign I wonder if he stayed up all night when the Benghazi embassy was under attack
I DON'T BELIEVE ALL REPUBLICANS HAVE RACIST VIEW OF OBAMA, BUT THERE IS ENOUGH AND IT SHOWS. WHEN A GUY LIKE SUNUNU STATED THAT COLIN POWELL ENDORSED OBAMA BECAUSE OF RACE, HE PRACTICALLY STATED HIS OWN FEELINGS ABOUT HIS OWN ENDORSEMENT. TO SAY THIS ABOUT COLIN POWELL NOT ONLY ANGERS ME BUT ALSO THE PEOPLE WHO WORKED FOR GENERAL POWELL, AMONG WHICH IS A COLONEL WHO IS WHITE AND ALSO A REPUBLICAN. PERHAPS IT WAS OUT OF ANGER BUT HE STATED THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS FULL OF RACISTS WHO HAVE OPPOSED PRESIDENT OBAMA DUE TO THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN. WHILE I WAS SHOCKED BY HIS CANDOR, I WAS NOT EXACTLY SURPRISED BY SUCH A REVELATION. AFTER ALL, THOSE 'DIXIECRATS' MUST HAVE GONE SOMEWHERE AFTER THE '60s.
CARAMON, I DO NOT THINK YOU ARE RACIST BUT HAVE TO ADMIT, JUST FROM THE COMMENTS HERE, YOU ARE PROBABLY A MINORITY.
OBAMA LIES AND COVER UP ...
IF YOU'RE IN THE MILITARY, OR THE STATE DEPARTMENT ... OBAMA DOES NOT HAVE YOUR BACK !!! ... ask Charles Woods, the father of our murdered Navy Seal !!!
Is there any President who has not had to cover up or gloss over the truth? I hardly think so
Mitt Romney lies every week when he changes what he said, like you turn the pages of a book! He is so blatant about it He doesnt even hide it!
That is very un Presidential
In Washington there are so many "knives" and there is no control over the politicians and other political clliques that abound!. They all have various agendas. That is the nature of that place
It must be the same as going into a den of hungry lions
It is called politics! and covering up is part of it for a large majority, if not all.
Obama could never have been elected, without a substantial WHITE VOTE ... and, cannot get reelected without a substantial yet you Obama stooges continue to rant about bad white folks and racism. Your blind devotion to 'Dear Leader' ... your Fuhrer, is touching ... but it's time for you to leave the Obama cult. 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 !!!
Your comments are just factually wrong and delusional. It was Bush that left the economy as toast!! Not Obama. It is amazing it is even doing as well as it is at this point with the horrible state it was in when he did get elected in 2008
Just as slavery was abolished so will Barack Obama win this election and continue to rebuild the nation (even with some Republicans who continue to do everything to hamper all his efforts)
It is Romney who is the dishonest one changing his story from one day to another on almost everything and outsourcing work and jobs to China when he was Governor. He raised taxes on the middle class by 750 million the minute he got elected when he had promised he would not
@BlkPwr817 Just an observation, if I was to use the screenname "WhitePower", I would automatically be deemed a racist. You are obviously the racist here. I am NOT a Romney supporter, and I have served and worked with people of many races all over the world. I KNOW what racism is, and it is you. You are the worst kind of racist. You are a self righteous and not even CLOSE to as smart as you think you are. And now, since you are a sad little troll, I shall return to ignoring you. That is all.
you say 2 months. get really for 4 more years.YES. so you can move out of the country.

LOL...Funny how you purposely left out the stock market that dang near crashed & 40+ months of job improvements from losing 800,000+ a month in Jan. 09. A car industry that was on it's last life line. 2 unpaid for wars which we now down to (1) & leaving that one soon. Then you go on to add your own opinions not the FACTS...silly of you to think we'll fall for it. He inherited the war in Iraq in which was supposed to have WMD's...lol And you say (NO COVER UP) Who says there is no religious freedom? Again using your own opinions then calling them FACTS. And last, we had respect around the world w/ Bush? Really? And now we don't have any? Really? What fun fact book did you get this garbage from? Seriously, how dare you come here with this mess. You say FACTS don't lie, then you only use half of the TRUTH. GTFOH.
the wars thing... Africa is falling apart since we helped with Egypt and Libya. You will see reporting on this after the election. It is a horrible mess, starvation in mass on the horizon. And the middle east...yes two wars and much much more.
Howard, Respect around the world? No Cover ups? hah you gotta be joking. if your homeboy ever becomes President (someday) then we'll have a third world war. that idiot wants to fight Iran, Russia, China and all. Well sorry to say son, Obama represents everything the world needs not like Romney who would only serve the elite and will surely get the US in trouble if they go for war with Iran. sorry bro maybe next time for Romney. Obama 2012 Son! :)
You do realize that the President can't solely change any of those things right? He needs the Republican controlled house and the filibustering Republican block in the senate to actually write all the legislation and then vote the laws through. The only thing on the list that the President actually controls is the wars, and the President has ended the war in Iraq and is gradually reducing troops in Afghanistan. And before you say that Obama had two years with Democrats in charge, he never had a super majority, he just had a majority, and the Republicans held more filibusters than any Congress in history. Also look at the Congressional Reporting Office and look at all the bills that were proposed by Republicans, not a SINGLE bill was proposed to improve jobs or the economy. All the Republicans did was try to pass laws for gun control, marriage equality and obscure social issues.
The truth is relative, and facts can be skewd to mean whatever you want them to mean. We have a hardworking and good president who fights for average people. Period!
Yes I totally agree!!!!!
Nice..you are right on.....Mitt Romney, Will get us out of the fiscal mess the we are in. Each American 18 years and older now holds 50k in U.S. debit because of gov. borrowing money from China and other countries. We CAN'T continue on this path.
Poison in a pretty package ...
OBAMA IS THE LOVER
WHO IS GIVING YOU AIDS.
So you are a racist as well. What a sick comment. Lets face it. He is the President of the United States and a very brave man in a very sick country with some sick people that makes comments like the one you just made.
Mitt Romney, Will get us out of the fiscal mess the we are in. Each American 18 years and older now holds 50k in U.S. debit because of gov. borrowing money from China and other countries. We CAN'T continue on this path. President Obama will continue on the same path and print more money and borrow more. America will fail and be like Europe or worse.
Hey CNN, where is the story on Libya and the Reuters emails??? I know it does not fit the Obama/CNN agenda, but c'mon...
First off twitter and facebook are not exactly the best intelligence sources. A fifth grader using facebook and/or twitter as a source would get an F. Given that it is a non-story I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have it, but they do, look harder.
I agree. Where is the cover up story. CNN not fair not balanced.
They will not cover this because they do not have journalist. CNN only has parrots .
Give the FBI time to complete their investigation just like Bush was given years to find WMD in Iraq. If the president had rushed to judgment and put out information during a fluid situation, when he knows nothing is certain, you would say that he was naive and you would be right. That's what Mitt did and it made him look stupid and totally uninformed. The one thing that intelligent people know is that it takes time to gather facts, especially in a foreign hostile country.
So true!!! Who would say things on any subject without knowing all the facts!!! As you say, an intelligent person would not do that. They wait until all the facts are in, That is also common sense! My humble opinion
An all nighter with taxpayer money, how fun!
Obama calls it an extravaganza. Wonder how much of his money he's spending on it....
Obama labels this 48 hour trip as an extravaganza. Wonder how much of that the American taxpayer is footing...
Let Obama have his 2 more months, because by January he's out and Mitt is our president.
i like the obama ,ready to go all night. hellhe stays up all night about 5 nights a week. watching,basketball,football. etc. why hasen't he ever passed a bill and how can cnn just show him and his lying speaches all day. look at the facts , the man was presideent for 2 years witha democratic. congress and never even wrote a bil. start getting use to giving your new presidedent some tv time or he and repubs. may just never give you an interview in the next 4 years/ please wake up and look at were our country is headed , this isn,t a country for the rich. you only make up 4%. what do you think the poor like me are going to be saying in the streets 220 millionof us will be doing whatever we have to to feed our kids, to maybe 60 million rich. i am just saying he has not helped the poor and he won.t in the next four years, i just don,t understand how cnn can be so obious when the world ,s salvation is at stake. oh, i guess you heard the bombers of the libian counsilet are sitting across the street at a cafe, laughing at us. it.s time for you at cnn with all your tv power to admit . this president has failed in every department you can name. what a shame acts like he want s to find and punish the terrorists,when they are sitting there on tv laughing at us. we are weak and we need to get a strong man in office. not a yes man and apoligiser. it has to happen in the next few years or we will be greece. wonder how you will look on tv when that day comes. and their is rioting in the streests. how will anyone get to work when their are tanks in the middle of our roads. its time for the ratings b.s. to end and start anouncing the situation this country is really in. thank you . dwayne.
How about less time on Leno and more time figuring out what just happened in Sudan. You know since it happened a block from our embassy it might be important. Actually nevermind, go ahead and keep campaigning, lets see what happens this time.
Too bad Lybian security wasn't worth an Obama all nighter..
Here is all the Dems need to do: run an ad in the swing states that says "The Tea Party has taken over Republican Party do you really want them taking over America?
Our people in Libya were killed 7 hours after the attack began....where was obama? You know they were begging for help...and, nothing. Impeach this fraud and clinton too....
LOL...You have no clear argument & you know it. If this is all you have to go on then you need to quit. Seriously. Should we go to war with Libya because they secretly have WMD"s like Iraq? LOL What should we do? You have nothing. Plan & simple. Libya...LOL And the guy you want in office basically agreed with dang near every foreign policy that the President has already put forward in the last debate. So what now? Libya? You still want to hang your hat on that? C'mon now....
hey stupid! Vote for a monster that sat on his hands and let them kill our sons if you wish...obama did this for his own political hide... vote for him again and suffer the consequences of which are beyond your mental grasp. It is you who will be standing in the soup line and freezing in the winter, not the responsible conservative who value good moral character.
LOL...OK jerry lax .Lax must be short for Laxative because your ideas & views on the real world is just plain shyt!...LOLTalk about mental gasp? Suffer the consequences huh? Like what we're going through now because of the reckless policies of tee Bush years...LOL Soup lines too huh? Freezing in the winter? This is the kind of stuff that the GOP preaches. You can't use scare tactics on someone who knows better. What facts do you have that suggest this will happen? Maybe it's the 47% your candidate spoke about behind closed doors. The same 47% that he doesn't care about. The pledge ends with "Liberty & justice for all" not 47% or 53%. And last don't come here with this good moral character BS. Morals, really? Legitimate rape, 47%, flip flopping what you believe in just to get votes. Morals...really? What a joke you are Mr. Laxative....Seriously!
Well...Black power...whom ever you are... just wait and see. You must learn great countries are not built on political division and government overstep...or the confiscastion of personal wealth and income... it is jobs, good jobs that we must have....and, no radical racist community organizer whom ever set a foot on this earth has or will do that for this country. Free commerce and limited government has...just look over the atlantic and you will see why it is brave people left there to come here to live and produce.
NoObama you seem to fall into the racist category judging by your reply This is the year 2012 Let it go and get with the right program
Obama has done many things right. The economy is improving from when Bush left it in a dive, the financial markets are improving.. There are more jobs starting to emerge now and the jobless rate is down. He saved tons of jobs in the auto industry that Mitt Romney would have left in the dust. He has done more in his Presidency (with one hand tied behind his back by the republicans), than Bush did in 8 years!. He is much more sophisticated in Foreign Policy, The housing market is recovering. All good things
And on top of that he is CONSISTENT unlike Mitt the Twit!! who changes his mind and policies from week to week. Romney will say anything at all to win. He will even tell you the moon is made of blue cheese if it will help him. Any idiot can do that.
This is not about running a business but a country. There is a vast difference and many experts in economics will tell you that.
Obama has got the country out of the wars that the Republicans started on a credit card that the nation is still paying for in money and in troops!
There was no need to invade Iraq at all and the people are still paying for that!
These were not problems started by Obama
If you choose to be a racist, that is your problem,not Obama. He is a very intelligent person and not a con (like some people running for President)
You are living in a past century with your archaic thinking and you know it
This has nothing to do with Obama and his policies just plain and obvious racism,(on your part)
I am speaking of a person's abilities here to effectively run a country and not whether they are white or black.
If the only thing you are capable of is complaining about someones color, then that is sad for you. You are the one who will be left behind
well I would think our President would render aid to non military American's that are being killed. They were on American soil. It is not like they started it.
Your blind devotion to 'Dear Leader' ... your Fuhrer, is touching ... but it's time for you to leave the Obama cult. 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 !!!
I agree with BillPwr817. Obama has done many things he listed and is much better Presidential material than Mitt. There is no comparison between these two men.
Other than that Obama is black. If the previous president had done half of what Obama had done, we would be sitting in a much better world. Instead Obama had to come in and save all the failings of Bush from the financial disaster to wars and auto and housing and the list goes on and on.
He has done miraculously well given the conditions with the hate he has to deal with.
A black man holding the top job is a hard pill to swallow for some people in America
Grow up! The only choice is Obama!
So Obama sleeps through Benghazi attack, but plans on an all nighter to watch election results. I know, right???
Obama will do a second term so leave it alone.
Better hope you do not call him for help. He will not answer. He will blame it on ___. I can not wait for the for the truth to come out. I do not care if it is tomorrow,1 month or years. You can not run from the truth.
Hussein Obama, ready to lose.
I think not
Why are we even discussing this, unless you are a liar and a phoney like Obama is, then you know after watching the only American news station around, FOX, that we need a new man in office. Watch it and if you do not get that message then you are just like him and deserve what is coming to us if that man gets to be Pres. one more time. Do you think your food stamp money will still come rolling in when we go bust, think again, if you think your welfare and housing assistance will continue to show up and be available to you when we go bust wake up! If we are broke, you will be living in a cardboard box at best. Watch Fox new, do the . com and see what you think after that. Maybe you will still be stupid I don't know.
God save the King.
It kills me that people continue to blame Obama. It makes me think that American's really don't deserve the freedom to choose, because we are too damn ignorant to make good choices. How are we so forgetful? Doesn't anyone remember that gas first got up to $4.00 a gallon under Bush? I do! Doesn't anyone remember how he handled 9/11 and the repercussions of that entire mess? I sure as hell do. The problem is, American's want someone to blame, but are too in denial to blame what's real. I still think it's easier for many of you to blame the black man. You disappoint me so!
Funny how you republicans continue to shout "He had four years", but when he took office he stated it would take two terms to clean up the mess "REPUBLICANS" caused. But, remember this; good ole Mitt said its going to take him two terms! That's in addition to what the President has already done. However, it will be 8 years in the wrong direction; back to the BUSH years.You people (republicans) keep listening to rhetoric and will vote for the very party that doesn't care a thing about you or this country; unless you are wealthy that is. If they cared about this country surely they would have worked WITH the President instead of against them.
But, indeed there is no racism in Congress; at least not toward Pres. Obama! Not even considering he has been the MOST disrespected President in history.
Your comment is disrespectful as usual
May divine providence finally guide us as a nation toward liberty, and NOT toward faith in men, any man, and especially not a man who embodies the antithesis of liberty, our Constitution, and the God given vision of our founding fathers. Radical Socialism has never been, and will never be the answer to the human condition.... only liberty and freedom can fill the void.
