Obama pleads at rally: Im asking you to keep believing in me
By Olivier Knox | The Ticket 4 hrs ago
Fighting to recapture the magic of his history-making 2008 campaign, President Barack Obama on Saturday laid out his fullest-yet case for reelection, pleading with struggling Americans to "keep believing in me" and hitting out at presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
"If people ask you what this campaign is about, you tell them 'it's still about hope.' You tell them 'it's still about change,'" he told a cheering mass of supporters at Ohio State University in Columbus, six months and one day before the election. "I still believe in you. And I'm asking you to keep believing in me."
Obama, his hopes for a second term weighed down by the stubbornly sluggish economic recovery, worked to convince Americans to view the vote not as a referendum on his record but as a choice between two very different candidates. He painted himself as the champion of the middle class and Romney as eager to "rubber stamp" House Republicans' goal "that we go right back to the policies that created this mess."
"We want businesses to succeed, we want entrepreneurs and investors rewarded when they take risks, when they create jobs and grow our economy. But the true measure of our prosperity is more than just a running tally of every balance sheet and quarterly profit report. I don't care how many ways you try to explain it: Corporations aren't people. People are people," Obama said, mocking a legally accurate but politically problematic comment from Romney early in the campaign.

This guy is very nervous. I think his internal polling is going in the toilet.
He’s a nervous narcissist. Not a good combination.
Of course he’s frantic, he’s got a lot more vacation time to get in.
'cause college kids are stupid?
People stopped believing in him over a year ago. Even democrats are turning against him because he lied to them.
I was willing to give him a chance—I gave him a year—He just doesn’t have the chops for the job. I even gave him six months more but over and over he has proven to be not the smartest man in the room—nor one who can inspire others. Time to go back to Hawaii Obama—you have left a black mark on the job. Going to take years to undo the damage you caused to the nation.
“pleading to half empty halls”
I noticed on the news tonight, the cameras avoided panning the crowd. That is because there was no crowd.
What is this, The Wonderful World of Disney?
Welcome to The Magic Kingdom! /s
Barry, I got some news for ya....not ALL young voters have fallen for your hopey changy thing.
Be afraid, be very very afraid...
Keep believing in the disaster mindset and turning America into a jungle of unfarming Democrates in a “Democrate grab me a nigg@ for an Obama pimp hunger game”.
That’s where Rham and Obama rule, you know, in a crisis. Yeah, keep believing in him for that.
Even the Los Angeles Times (which in the past has been BO's cheerleader) posted the photo of the empty stands on their Web site.
Obama would have you believe in HIM when a American
President like Reagan would have you believe in
This kinda reminds me of the Star Trek episode “Who Mourns for Adonis?” in which an alien needed people to believ he was a god - without that belief, he would dissolve into nothingness.
“And I’m asking you to keep believing in me.”
Why doesn’t he just go all the way, put up some silly faux Greek columns, pull on a robe, and inquire: “Who do you say that I am?”
He wants people to succeed? So he can tax the hell out of them.
Take your community agitator ass home, America hates you.
Much as I hate to admit it, as a supporter of our Republican nominee, Obama is correct. Corporations aren’t people.
1. A corporation is a political body legally authorized to act AS a person.
2. A corpoaration is a legal creation authorized to act with the rights and liabilities OF a person.
Therefore, corporations aren’t people. Harvard Lawyer Obama is correct. Harvard Lawyer Romney is wrong.
Gee I have three s-corps, an LLC and I am on the board by myself on all but one where my wife joins me. Like probably 75 percent of all corporations. I guess you think I am not a person. Who would have thunk it. But you and Obama know better I guess.
Stupid is as stupid posts.
It’s about the Great Leap Forward.
Shut up and pay your taxes. And then pay more taxes.
(I agree with you).
