Obama stumps in surprise battleground state

Milwaukee, Wisconsin (CNN) - His campaign thought Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes were in the bag long ago, but President Barack Obama's trip here Saturday is the latest indicator that both sides believe the Badger State has become a toss-up.

The president touches down in the state Saturday for the first time in more than 200 days, set to attend two fund-raisers that will net his campaign more than $600,000 as well as an evening rally at a large amphitheater on the banks of Lake Michigan.

Why no pics of the rally? One article I read said an est. 18,000. One would think that would make for a great photo op....but no pics?????

I found one photo...it was O waving in the foreground and a small slice of crowd in the background. In other words, it was almost ALL, Obama, very little, the crowd.

Ask yourself this, too.

When you google this rally, you get a ton of stories that claim Obama has a double digit lead in WI.

If that is actually the case, then why is Obama wasting time and money going there?

I like cheese.

I don’t go to WI for it.

I guess you’re trying to be funny, but what has it to do with ANYTHING?

For him to be Wisconsin means big trouble for the campaign.

BO is campaigning in WI (supposedly a blue state).

Romney is fundraising in CALIFORNIA (also supposedly a blue state).

Things are busting out all over!

“2010 ain’t over in WI. We have had it with the effing libs in this state.”

I found out about this story on Yahoo’s website. obama said something about the amount Romney’s amount he pays in taxes, “sure can afford to pay a little more in taxes”, while he was in WI. He is really starting to disgust me on a whole new level.

Another thing, I am surprised WI is consider a swing state as much as it is. Seems like WI is a lock for Romney really. If I was Obama I would be really worried about MN. I would think the Scott Walker fallout would spill over. People are getting sick a tired of this crap fast. I know MN is bluer, but things are starting to burst at the seems for these guys.

He must be “winning” since a state he thought was wrapped up is now in play. How does the media spin this?

You aren’t kidding. This latest episode with Act 10 is showing first-hand just how deep the corruption in Madison is.

In His speech there he claimed that when he began running for this office LAST year,before correcting himself and saying 4 years ago, he claimed that he never said he was going to get things fixed in one term.
Well its nice to know that he began Campaiging for reelection a Year ago instead of DOING the job,and He said that if he doesnt get the job done in 4 years it would be a one term proposition.
So More lies from the poser in Chief

Not in thw WI that I live in. There are very few Obama political signs in central and rural Wisconsin. The only place one MIGHT find a few Obummer signs would be in Milwaukee (north side) and Madistan, both meccas are full of Demodummies.

Not just supposedly. It is blue and a fundraiser doesn't mean anything except that there is money to be gathered up there.

They forgot to get some angles that would make it look like a real crowd. On the other hand, Romney has been attracting huge throngs of people 9from some pics I saw of folks who attended the events) and there are also no pictures of them being published. It may be that the MSM finds it easier to not publish any pics and hope that nobody else puts some out for comparison...

If Romney won California, I wouldnt be able to stop laughing for weeks.

Arnold did win that state for Gov.

I’m the one you quoted in your post, but you posted it to someone else.

That’s why I posted the question that you quoted...it defies common sense to believe the stories that he has a double digit lead there but just for fun decided to hold a big rally.

For me to have asked the question was to answer it...with skepticism bordering on disbelief.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Admittedly, I don’t hear his ads unless I can’t get to the remote fast enough, but in a couple I have heard he almost sounds like this is his first term...
“I have a plan to fix economy, grow jobs” etc...doesn’t sound like someone trying to get reelected.
Guess his sheep will stick with him no matter what.

I can only guess that WJC is angling for a Supreme Court slot, possibly he and Hillary together?

Of course Willy & Hilly probably to “Conservative” for the average LIB...

I been telling my Dad, I think its possible for Romney to win NY. I think NYC hates Romney. They hate him for the Ground Zero Mosque. Proposal of the 9/11 Plotters Trials Upstate, hates him for the same reason a guy like me would.

+1 on that FRiend.
The only places I see odiuma stickers on vehicles is located around the enclaves of Madistan and Milwaukee. That and when I drop my children off at school in the am. About a 1/3rd of the vehicles in teacher parking lot have odumba bumper stickers.
I see very few yard signs for the dems where I live. That’s shocking, in 08 and 10 the roadways were covered in dem propaganda 30-40 days prior the polls opening.
Lots of Tommy T signs. Very few of Baldwin.
