Skip to comments.Obama will try to upstage GOP convention with campaign stops
Posted on 08/18/2012 3:30:36 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Obama regards the week of the Republican convention as precious time to campaign, his spokeswoman told reporters to explain why he will not lay low that week, as is customary for incumbent presidents.
We know that this is a close election and we need to compete for every vote that we can compete for, Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Air Force One today. And thats one of the reasons the President will be spending some time on the campaign trail the week of the Republican convention.
Psaki was responding to a reporter who had noted that Traditionally, Presidents kind of stay low during the oppositions conventions and asked, Is he trying to steal some thunder next week with his own campaign trips?
She denied that his anticipated campaigning is an attempt to steal Romneys thunder. We know that there will certainly be a lot of attention paid to the Republican convention just like there will be to the Democratic convention the week we have it, Psaki said. But were not going to give up any precious time or precious time with voters when we have it.

Typical of this no class fascist wanna be.
This “president” has no class.
I love the smell of desperation in the morning. It smells like...victory!
They are in a panic. He’s in New Hampshire today. He won that state by 10 in 2008. Their internal polls are bad. I look for them to get worse. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Obama in New Jersey and Connecticut soon.
No class thug. What do you expect?
He might have a hard time doing that playing to half empty venues.
Well, it’s not like he has anything better to do.
I'd as soon he were out there telling lies than in the office writing more executive orders.
Sure he has class——Low Class.
Nothing is too low for this clown. Except Romney’s taxes, LMAO
Moveon.org is flying a banner plane over Paul Ryans speeches. Yes. They are desperate. The one at The Villages said “Paul Ryan Hands off My Medicare.” I think the seniors got it figured out who screwed them over with Obamacare. At least my Democrat neighbors know. They are never voting Democrat again. Nobody can screw Obama over like he has done to himself and his party the past 4 years. NOBODY.
This is a plain act of desperation. The Ryan pick was a stroke of genius and the polls and swing voters are starting to move against Obama. It’s a beautiful thing.
I cant see classless Willard bothering to lay low during the Democrat convention...
I bet Willard will be all over the Alphabet media...
trying to steal thunder from Obamas party in Charlotte...
So what difference does this make ???
poor news day ???
“I’d as soon he were out there telling lies than in the office writing more executive orders.”
The lies are really becoming absurd too. I think the more he talks, the more he alienates all but the true believers and the terminally stupid.
this is typical Obama’s Michelle will more than likely have to make NEWS also, maybe she can jump rope or roll a hula hoop in the driveway of the White House.
what tasteless characters of thugs they are.
So, what will the GOP be doing during the Dems’ convention?
Class? You guys are right on.
What person with any class tells some people what they can or can’t sell and others what they can or can’t eat?
We’ve got the Jed Clampet of Chicago and his lovely wife, plowing under main street U. S. A., telling us it good for us.
These two are history...
How can so many people be so stupid....that we wound up with this peice of cr**.
