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 Romneys 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 Obamas 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.
>> All I am hearing about is what Obama is saying.
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.
>> “... I’ve got the scars to prove it. You have too, Obama told the 4,500 supporters
Those 4,500 supporters are all smack addicts too?
Then again, I’m not sure needle tracks actually count as “scars”.
I am not listening. I’ve already voted (for Romney). It’s just that all I am hearing and reading (other than on FR0 nationally and locally is Obama this, Omama that, Omaba lead numerous swing states, Omama had his a$$ kissed by Christie, etc.
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.
Wow, brutal misspellings. Election has gotten on my nerves.
>> Ive already voted (for Romney).
Then please let me rephrase what I posted earlier:
“there are lots of folks out there voting for Romney, just like you.”
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,
Yes Obama we have the scars from the screwing you have been giving America. Now PISS OFF and go spend ALL your time on a golf course somewhere, preferably Saudi Arabia
That line is a perfect followup to Obama’s, we leave nobody behind remark from yesterday.
What a friggin Maroon.
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?
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.
>> That’s not my point.
I’m trying to empathize with you and support you, and it’s not working.
So help me out: what exactly IS your point?
Mr. Obama, show us your scars! Liar!
Great 0 charts. Thanks for posting.
