President Obama's closing argument: Don't go GOP
By: Carol E. Lee October 23, 2010 05:49 PM EDT
MINNEAPOLIS President Barack Obama finished the longest campaign trip of his presidency Saturday much in the way he started: criticizing Republicans for wanting to take the country backward and trying to rally disheartened Democrats to the polls.
For Democratic supporters from 2008 who are thinking about switching sides this election, Obama paraphrased Albert Einstein. The true sign of madness is if you do the same thing over and over again and expect the same result, he said during a rally at the University of Minnesota.
All of you have to vote, Obama told thousands of supporters. There is no excuse.
The president, who was in Minnesota to stump for gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton, continued to attack Republicans by framing the election as a choice between tax cuts for the middle class or tax cuts for the wealthy, he said, and a reformed health care, credit card and financial system or the same policies that were in place before he took office.
Weve got a different idea about what the future should hold for America, Obama said. Republicans, he said, are offering same old stuff that they have been peddling for the last decade, whether its on Social Security, the environment or foreign policy.
We believe in making sure people dont get ripped off when they sign up for a mortgage, Obama said, suggesting Republicans dont. Thats the choice in this election.

Too late - mailed them off this afternoon.
Don’t go GOP if you want FREE EVERYTHING!! You are a PET to be taken care of, because you are TO STUPID to take care of yourself!!
I haven’t heard of anyone getting tingles this time around.
I honestly would never see a headline like this from these scum: “President Bush’s closing argument, “Don’t go Democrat.”
The rotten pigs would never call him President Bush, for starters.
WOW....I am persuaded! What incredible charisma!!!
You mean, like the taxpayers getting ripped off because you forced banks to make the loans to unqualified people, and then bailed out the banks? Those are the people you don't want to be ripped off? Like Republicans do?
The true sign of madness is if you do the same thing over and over again and expect the same result, he said during a rally at the University of Minnesota.
Because Marxism has worked so well in every nation and culture where it has been tried.
That's not a very good paraphrase. Same result?
Anyway it's pretty funny. If he even bothered to get the quote right, it would mean that according to Jerry Brown, Obama is Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Did he use the “car in the ditch” analogy again cause it’s so effective. Idiot.
This guy is so partisan it is scary. What does he think he’s accomplishing by putting party over country?
The true sign of madness is if you do the same thing over and over again and expect the same result,
Most of the large cities in this country have been under Democratic control for ages and are broke and corrupt to the core. QED
This is all wrong. I think the saying is that it is insanity to do the same thing over and over, expecting a different result the next time. Doing the same thing and getting the same result every time is just being consistent.
Also, if it were insanity to do the same thing twice, then he is saying you are crazy to vote for Democrats again, because you already did it once and it didn’t work out well.
The whole statement is messed up.
Nov. 02 is the only thing keeping me civil.
Gave a honk and a thumbs up as I drove by.
I wonder if we could get the word out to our Rat “friends” that in order to avoid confusion, Republians are to vote on the second of November and the Rats are to vote on the 3rd of November.
” same old stuff ...”
Barry uses the word “ stuff “ all the time when he’s off the teleprompter.
I think he uses it as much as he uses “ aaaaaaah “ and “ uuuuum.”
He’s obviously a moron , but, the media , in the face of evidence otherwise, keeps insisting that he’s a genius.
Heh. You are right. I just sort of glided over the the cliche when I started reading it. Trust Obama to botch even simple plagiarism. Joe Biden actually IS smarter!
Personal power, the adoration of his pathetic followers, and the satisfaction of doing great damage to a country he hates with all his hart. He's just a vandal, a destroyer. He creates or builds nothing....
I'm sure he still needed a prompter for that as well.
I imagine a Kindergarten room, except it’s a room in the WH. A big room with a big round rug. And all the White House staff gathers and they all throw out ideas for the daily bright idea for Zero.
Don’t go GOP? Wow, even 1st graders could come up with a better one than this.
