No doubt these will be canned recordings and not a live Obama on the phone.

So?

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.

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.

Not buying it.

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.

Good point. He can't make those kinds of calls from the Oval Orifice, but he thinks he can do it from the airborne Oval Orifice in AF1? Maybe he could make the calls in the lavatory while he is sneaking a Kool, avoid the Hatch Act but only be in violation of the FAA which he fully controls.

I believe so, but the state controlled media will say that AF 1 isn't a "building." Plus, nothing happened to Sebilous when she did it from a government owned building.

Obama's November surprise -

Beginning Sunday November 4 2012 the MSM have agreed to exempt all scheduled programming through Election Day.

All major newspapers' Sunday Nov. 4 2012 headline will be:

George Romney and son Mitt are war criminals!
Highly respected Senator eyewitness, "I cannot hide it any longer."

The only MSM story will be: Mitt: "My dad brainwashed me."

Washington, D.C. (Nov. 4, 2012). Senator John Kerry revealed today, "I witnessed eighteen-year-old Mitt Romney in Viet Nam with his dad George where they raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blew up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and tied dogs to the tops of 2 1/2-ton trucks for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam . . . ."

There is a special phone for campaign calls on Air Force One, I kid you not. Though given his criminal history, I wonder if he even uses it?

“Who’s paying for all the Air Force One time? How much is it a minute?”

My question exactly. Air Force One costs $180K hourly, so will his campaign be reimbursing the U.S. Treasury $8.6 million for this boondoggle? http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2012/05/air-force-one-air-fare-179750-per-hour/1#.UILsdsVG-68

Put another way, would he be squandering such sums if taxpayers weren’t subsidizing it? It’s exactly this mentality which should demonstrate to the average taxpayer why this clown needs to go. Of course, since he’s racked up roughly $114 million an hour in new federal debt during his tenure in office, perhaps we should count our blessings that he’s spending his time in this fashion. It might actually be less expensive than if he were sitting in the Oval Office signing new regulations etc.

Just saw some footage of him at an event, and the looked more or less like he was possessed. He was rattling off phrases heralding his vision of a turned around economy. He’s destroying his calm cool composure image.

He looked so manic. He’s sweating folks...

I hope a lot of undecided voters he calls have the wit to reply:

“Mr. President, while I’m flattered that you took the time to call me personally, the fact that you are wasting time to make personal phone calls to undecided voters, rather than doing job you were elected to do had made up my mind: I’m voting for Romney.”

Or words to that effect.

At this point in time, ther are no “undicides”. Every individual that intends to vote have made up their mind that they are going to vote either for or against obama. Since either obama or Romney will be in the White House come January 2013, any vote not for Romney is [ no matter what the vote caster tells themselves]a vote for obama.

That statement works exactly the same way if you reverse the candidate names. Any vote not for Obama is [no matter what the vote caster tells themselves] a vote for Romney. Of course, the answer isn't known in advance, but a "not vote" is arguably accepting the results, and therefore is a vote for whoever the winner ends up being.

You know, that is one of the biggest differences between the two sets of candidates. One is calm and collected and mature, the other rants and raves and mocks and laughs. It is striking how unhinged POTUS can appear at times, especially considering how everyone always goes on about how “cool” he is.
