Skip to comments.Obama Plans ‘Around the Clock' Blitz (6 states in 2 days, will call undecideds from AF1)
Posted on 10/20/2012 11:11:17 AM PDT by kristinn
President Obama will spend 48 hours campaigning around the clock in a frenzied effort to court swing-state voters two weeks before Election Day.
The America Forward Tour, beginning Wednesday, will take the president through six swing states and three time zones during a 48-hour period, the campaign said in a statement on Saturday.
Obama will hold late night grass roots events, meet with volunteers and talk to undecided voters in Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, Florida, Virginia and Ohio on Wednesday and Thursday.
As the President crisscrosses the nation, he will spend time on Air Force One calling undecided voters, rallying National Team Leaders and volunteers and continuously engaging with Americans across the country about the choice in this election, the Obama campaign said in a statement.
Obamas final stop will be in Chicago, where he will make history by being the first sitting President to vote early in person.

48 hour blitz?Cocaine is a hell of a drug.
No doubt these will be canned recordings and not a live Obama on the phone.
I don't think he wants to call my house but then again... I'm not undecided.
I am sure that voters will be swayed by a phone call at 4 a.m.
He’s campaigning in states his campaign has already conceded. I always look at where a losing campaign spends its time. His purpose in going out there is to keep his numbers from falling to flat bottom - not on winning them. O knows its hopeless but you know they fought even in the trenches during World War I when there was no prospect of a decisive victory in sight.
I don’t know the answer to this, but wouldn’t this be considered a violating the Hatch Act?
The campaign effort here is in the telling, not the doing. Does anyone believe Obama will be awake, at say 3 AM, dialing undecided voters when he was either asleep or jetting off to raise money in Las Vegas as Benghazi burned?
How would he know if a voter was undecided? Would his staff screen the calls, or would he cold call himself, or (much worse) have they compiled a list?
I could imagine the conversation if he cold-called me: “Jeez, Mr. President, is that really you? It’s 3 in the morning! I was thinking about voting for Mitt, but now it’s a done deal. I don’t ever want my government calling me in the middle of the night! Say “Hi!” to Mooch and the girls, and give Bo a pat for me. Bye.”
Who is President? Who is Commander in Chief?
This clown is simply campaigning non-stop, totally oblivious to the fact he is neglecting all presidential duties (not attending intel briefings or meetings of jobs council, etc.). Just allowing that witch Valerie Jarret and Moochelle to run things and keep tabs on the unacountable czars.
Hopefully after the debate Monday this will seem completely ridiculous to everyone in America. (Like it already does to us in here.)
Reminds me of Dole’s last-gasp blitz.
He's just trying to convince his doubting supporters (and B of A, from whom he just borrowed $15mm) that he's still in the race...when he knows--and they suspect--otherwise.
Uh huh. Acting like the voters don’t know him.
Not. Going. To. Work.
Sounds like an irresponsible college kid doesn't it?
