Obama to Ohio again!
President Obama is heading back to the battleground state of Ohio this morning. His eighth trip to the buckeye state this year. The battle for the state's 18 electoral votes will be an expensive one. According to Campaign Media Analysis Group, which tracks political ad spending on broadcast TV and national cable more than $22 million has been spent by the campaigns and in the independent groups to put up ads in Ohio since the start of the general election campaign in early April.
When Obama returns to the White House he will head back out to the Verizon Center to watch a bit of basketball. Team USA, men and women , will play exhibition games tonight against Brazil as they prep for the upcoming London Olympics.

I have heard one side of the Buckeye is posiionus. Obama should be careful of which side he chews on.
The drought in the midwest will not only jack up food prices, but since Obama is converting our military ships to bio-fuels ... now running at $26 per gallon ... he has once again managed to screw the American tax payer, while putting our national defense at risk. Save America ... dump Obama in November !!!
The rallying cry for Obama supporters:
Obama has screwed us for the past 4 years
But we will not shed any tears,
We"ll just bend over for you to do it ag'in,
Because we like the color of your skin!
You're such a stupid person.
Obama and his army of stooges can spin, and lie all they want ... but, everyone I know is feeling the weight of a shrinking economy, and higher prices for everything. Anyone who still believes this charlatan is a fool.
It annoys me that my fellow Ohioans have such an outsized role in the presidential election. We need to go to a popular vote instead of a state-based one so all Americans get equal say.
Only campaign events shown in Ohio, so I guess Obama will be picking up the whole tab for this trip ( yeah right ).
Way to go Obama. The government should be for the people and not for tax cheats and draft dodger Mitt.
We need to keep up the pressure on Romney to release his tax returns and to explain when he left Bain Capital. All of the interviews that I have seen is about him whining about how the Dems are running negative ads. What about the primaries and the negative ads he ran.
Obama / Biden 2012
$200.00 Fine for excessive and delusional Obama worship.
The biggest tax cheat is the US Gov't itself. Take a look at how much is fleeced from the American taxpayer through the countless gov't "programs." The $600 toilet seat does not go to pay for extraterrestrial research–Men In Black was a work of fiction, not a documentary.
The govt is for the people. It's for the people who live & prosper in Washington. Where else can the president of a country so deep in debt, running without a budget, spending money it doesn't have & a president who says everything is fine, goes not to play yet another round of golf, then take in a basketball & travel around the country ALL ON THE PEOPLE'S DIME! Obama's gov't is for the people – for his & the rest of the ineffective politicians in Washington. Obama's speech this weekend, say it's not the hard work of Americans that make them successful – it's him "“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” he said. “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
I would refer Obama to the internet itself for the reason the Internet was created – & it sure isn't the lie he just spouted.
I guess whether it's his birth certificate or Romney's departure date at Bain – both parties refuse to address the real issues & just keep throwing up spoke screens to try & keep America from seeing the real truth.
Get back to Washington & act like a leader & get our ecomony fix stupid
...Yeah ... the Obama playing field is tilted in favor of the corrupt Obama cronies, at the expense of hard working Americans.
You're soooo right. He really does think everything revolves around him and govt. The internet wasn't invented so companies could make money, it was a way research and data could be shared between work stations. Obama and Al Gore had nothing to do with it.
YOU GUYS SURE THOUGHT IT WAS FINE THAT cLINTON WAS A DRAFT DODGER. AND HE SURE IS'N'T THE MOST HONEST PERSON FOR THAT MATTER.
Lionel, tax records are not the issue in this country. He has released exactly what is required...and people with any brainwaves at all – really don't give a fat rat about that. Obama never released half of what he was asked to do – took 2.5 years to release a birth certificate, never released college records, never released any form education records, etc. He was obviously elected. The issues need to be vetted and when we have a president who bashes the successful day after day, even stooping low enough to say that those who are successful didn't get there on their own, and sticking his foot deeper into his mouth by saying that the successful think they built something on their own, blah blah. What idiot says that? Our President. He is so out of touch with the citizens of this country. So, Lionel get in the real world here – Mitt's tax records are not an issue. A president who thinks that taxing americans who can't afford health care, who wants you and me and every american dependent on government, who is anti-capitalism, anti-american, anti-chrisitan, anti-Constitution – and who has divided this country more so than in any generation – and has no plan and no way to run on anything successful – that's the problem. While Romney isn't perfect – he is American and believes in this country and has worked in this country in many roles...which is something the President can't say he's done. Oh and if you really want the truth about the President – do a little research on his brother who is living in poverty and while the president tells all of us to pay more – he has done nothing to help his brother. We call that hypocritical.
The arrogance of Obama is amazing. Despite his protests otherwise he is an elitist. Here he is playing golf again, watching basketball & traveling – all the things that he says Americans shouldn't do. I guess the economy is good.
Or how about his recent speech where he says "“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” he said. “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
Does he really read up on topics before he opens his mouth. The internet was created in the 1960 so that defense researchers could share info & communicate with each other. But here is Obama conveniently changes the truth to fit him.
Instead of playing golf & watching basketball, Mr Obama please get back to Washington & be a leader, not an obstructionist or divider. Use what influence & leadership skills you have not to play games, talk trash but get things done in Washington
SO YOU'RE WHINING ABOUT HOW THE INTERNET GOT CREATED? DOES ANYBODY CARE EXCEPT MAYBE WHEN OBAMA SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND YOU REPUBLITARDS CAN'T STOP YOU"RE CRYING?
BY ALL MEANS KEEP AT IT. SOME PEOPLE WOULD SAY THE INCESSANT WHINING IS TIRESOME BUT I FIND IT HILARIOUS.
Yo laffer! You are circliing the wagons so hard, you are dizzy! THAT explains your postings!
"I"m so dizzy my head is spinnin', like a whirpool it never ends, your making me dizzy!
Remember the song? I gonna call Casey Kasem and give you a long distance dedication! Your DIZZY! and not the musician either! Just plain ole dizzy!
STEVEO, HAVE YOU BEEN TAKING 1FREEWORLD'S MEDICATION? TIME TO GET OUT OF THE METH LAB.
Yo seem to know a lot about meth labs. Personal experience?
You're right if you own a business you did not create it, according to President Obama the government did, so you owe all your profit to the government.
The Republicans can keep saying anything they want and raise all the money they want but at the end of the time and November rolls around, the people of this country will have 2 choices. 1 to elect a Wallstreet Ceo run this country and hope the middle class survives or, 2 elect a man who will make sure the middle class will prosper,grow and suceed and make sure every person in this country has Health Insurance that affordable for all.I'll Vote for President Obama in November. ( Simple )
I will counter your ONE vote! It is only one, right?
On the serious side, what you and your liberal buddies are not considering is the voters known as the INDEPENDENTS! It was their vote that placed te president in office in 2008! Will that happen again?
I'm a registered Independent for the last 20 yrs. AND I AM VOTING OBAMA!!
That is your choice! Just realize there are those who did in 2008 and will not in 2012!
When is Ohio going to change it's auto tag slogan from "Birthplace of Aviation" to "Community of Dupes"?
Once again to cover his own fail policies he is trying to make Romney look bad. I guess he has repeated it so much he believes his own propoganda. A little research found a lot of interesting articles on our Out Sourcer in Chief, Obama.
After receiving a $500 million stimulus loan guarantee, Fisker Automotive is producing their $100,000 luxury electric sports car in Finland. (“Car Company Gets U.S. Loan, Builds Cars in Finland,” ABC News, 10/20/11)
Nearly Half of President Obama’s $2.4 billion devoted to advanced vehicle batteries went to foreign companies in places like Russia, China, South Korea and France. (“Obama Sends Stimulus Aid to Foreign Firms,” Washington Times, 8/6/09)
Sempra Energy was awarded a $337-million loan guarantee to supply panels for a solar power plant in Arizona. However, the company purchased its solar panels from the Chinese solar giant Suntech. (“Sempra Gets $337 Million Guarantee for Arizona Solar Project,” Bloomberg News, 9/28/11)
Two South Korean companies – LG Chem and Dow Kokam – were given $303 million to produce car batteries in the U.S., but then brought in foreign workers. Local unions have criticized the company for filling jobs with foreign workers. (“Unions Say Foreign Workers Taking Stimulus Jobs,” CBS News, 4/13/12)
“An April 2010 study by the Energy Department found that 60 percent of the 40 largest wind farms then financed by the stimulus relied on foreign manufacturers for their central components, including turbines.” (“Obama’s Record on Outsourcing Draws Criticism from the Left,” The Washington Post, 7/9/12)
California-based Tezo Systems lost its bid for a ‘stimulus’-funded grant to install television monitors on California buses to a New Zealand company. (“Santa Clarita Rejects Protest, New Zealand Company Keeps Stimulus Contract,” NBC4 Los Angeles, 5/16/12)
A federal investigation found that “at least $7 million in federal stimulus money intended to provide jobs to unemployed Oregonians instead paid wages to 254 foreign workers.” (“Federal Stimulus Money for Oregon Jobs Hired Foreign Workers,” The Oregonian, 10/20/12)
The fact that Obama has returned to Ohio so soon means he knows it's close. They have the best polling money can buy and he knows it's not a closed deal yet. What struck me is when he said that small business owners shouldn't get credit for building their own successful businesses, the govt should. He really does believe that everything revolves around big govt, and him.
JOHN MCCAIN: SO I JUST GOT MITT'S TAX RECORDS.... I THINK I'M GONNA GO WITH THAT SARAH WHATSERFACE.
I STAND CORRECTED. APPARENTLY JOHNNY BOY SAYS HE DIDN'T PICK PALIN OVER MITT BECAUSE OF MITT'S TAX RETURNS. HE DID SO BECAUSE PALIN WAS JUST A BETTER CANDIDATE.
MITT ROMNEY: SO I'M ABOUT TO PICK MY RUNNING MATE FROM THE LIST...
EVERYONE ELSE ON THE LIST: PLEASE DON'T PICK ME, PLEASE DON'T PICK ME
BOB MCDONNELL: HOT DANG! CAN'T WAIT TO BE NOT GOVERNOR VA-GINAL PROBE ANYMORE!
Half of GE's worforce is overseas, they also keep the profits overseas so they won't have to pay taxes. Obama when he appointed Imelt to his "jobs" council, "We have a lot we can learn from GE". GE has also received billions in govt loans and grants. He and Imelt laughed when asked about "shovel ready" jobs regarding the stimulus.
Cynthia L. – Theres NO way youre an independent, at least be honest. You've voted Dem your whole life and you love Obama.
Sorry, I am an Independent! Used to be a Republican as was most of my family who are now Independents as well, until they proved to be cheaters and liars and only for the rich.
I DID VOTE OBAMA 1ST TIME AND WILL AGAIN!
Now, I have some info to pass along to you and your drinking friends who say Obama has ruined NASA. It's only because you guys don't read anything to do with science and are willing to nix public education because you don't see the value of smarts.
NASA's newest MARS ROVER will arrive on Mars on August 6th after being launched Nov. 26, 2011.
NASA is continuning forward with their plans for a manned-mission for 6 to 8 astronauts to Mars in the next 15 yrs.
NASA is leading the project for the newest successor of the HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE that will launch into space in 2018 when it will be carried by a Araine 5 rocket. Work on the new telescope is being jointly done by several Utah entities as we speak. Government helping business to move America forward. Gee, that doesn't fit with your Obama-kills-jobs-agendas, now does it??
I went to the bathroom this morning and was thinking how I couldn't have wiped myself without all the people who made that possible; for example, the toilet paper manufacturers' kids, who nagged the assembly-line worker into getting out of bed that winter morning so many months ago, and the the bank teller who processed the loan for the car that drove the taxi driver to the airport to pick up the FedEx pilot who delivered the assembly-line workers' kids' Nintendo Wii, which allowed THAT worker to have a paycheck...and the list goes on...
Thanks Obama for helping me to see that I can't even wipe my rear end without encountering your vainglorious contributions! I am clearly indebted to you for everything in my life, fine sir!
OBAMA SHOW VERY LOW CLASS, THAT I WILL BAD FOR POSITION OF PRESIDENT OF USA.
