LAS VEGAS, Nev. – At his second of three events Thursday, President Obama honed his closing arguments, painting himself as a populist fighter for those who send him to the White House a second time.

His speech was lighter on direct jabs to his opponent Mitt Romney, as was his earlier address in Green Bay, Wis., although he once again ridiculed Romney’s self-characterization as an agent of change.

“My opponent can talk about change, but I know what real change looks like because I've fought for it. I've got the scars to prove it. You have too,” Obama told the 4,500 supporters gathered in a field at the Cheyenne Sports Complex.

The imagery of a fighter struggling against the status quo punctuated Obama’s entire speech.

All I am hearing about is what Obama is saying. Not one F-ing thing about what Romney is saying. Please tell me this isn’t the case in the swing states.

In the swing-state of Virginia we’re being bombarded constantly with ads — TV and radio. Almost 3 to 1 Romney. I think Romney has a cash advantage which he’s cashing the last few days in the swing states with saturation advertising. BTW, I’m sick to death of political ads for this cycle. Even the anti-Obama ads. Nov 6 can’t come soon enough for me.

Yeah, he’s got that scar on his skull saying “Allah” in Arabic.

I’m not sure that’s a *bad* thing.

Let the jackass talk.

Thought question: do *you* believe what Obama says?

There’s lots of folks out there, listening, who are just like you.

Those 4,500 supporters are all smack addicts too?

Then again, I’m not sure needle tracks actually count as “scars”.

Just a few of Obama’s scars:

Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former Navy SEALs working under the State Department, were killed alongside U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and information management officer Sean Smith.

Then please let me rephrase what I posted earlier:

“there are lots of folks out there voting for Romney, just like you.”

The entire Country has the “scars to prove it”. Geez...

The media does not want you to hear what Romney is saying
only what Obastardo is saying.
Obama speak only.

That’s my point. Are the people in those states that will decide this election (OH, IA, NH, WI, CO, FL, VA) hearing Romney’s message past the constant barrage of Obama-speak? And not just the enthused who are attending his rallies, but those who are undecided about this election?

"there are lots of folks out there voting for Romney, just like you."

That's not my point. My vote was never in much doubt with Romney (I would *never* vote for Obama). It's the vote of those looking for a reason to vote for someone or vote against someone that I am curious about.

I’m trying to empathize with you and support you, and it’s not working.

So help me out: what exactly IS your point?

Well if the people only rely on the MSM then they only will hear Obama. Hopefully they saw the debates which were shown the MSM and they got to see the contrast between candidates. Luckily the first debate really showcased
Mitt and Obama was shown as the piece of crap that he is
and that debate had the largest audience.

"So help me out: what exactly IS your point?"

Is Romney's message getting to anyone who hasn't decided in this election or is looking for a reason to vote for him or against Obama? Based on what I am hearing and reading, I don't see it.

I think that anyone who is looking is very likely to encounter the information they need to make the right decision.

Relax and have faith. Pray. Works wonders!

“I know what real change looks like because I’ve fought for it. I’ve got the scars to prove it. “

Scars my a$$. The only scars Obama has acquired lately must have come from falling off a bar stool. Or maybe after he leaned too hard on a golf club. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was still in Las Vegas when he denied help to the ambassador in Benghazi.

Lying sack of doo doo.

He has never been called on the mat for any of his numerous mistakes, blunders and deaths.

He was born in and continues to live in the AA Bubble.

If the 9/11 attacks on NYC happened today, the State run media would not even cover it.
