Obama pleads at rally: Im asking you to keep believing in me
By Olivier Knox | The Ticket 4 hrs ago
Fighting to recapture the magic of his history-making 2008 campaign, President Barack Obama on Saturday laid out his fullest-yet case for reelection, pleading with struggling Americans to "keep believing in me" and hitting out at presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
"If people ask you what this campaign is about, you tell them 'it's still about hope.' You tell them 'it's still about change,'" he told a cheering mass of supporters at Ohio State University in Columbus, six months and one day before the election. "I still believe in you. And I'm asking you to keep believing in me."
Obama, his hopes for a second term weighed down by the stubbornly sluggish economic recovery, worked to convince Americans to view the vote not as a referendum on his record but as a choice between two very different candidates. He painted himself as the champion of the middle class and Romney as eager to "rubber stamp" House Republicans' goal "that we go right back to the policies that created this mess."
"We want businesses to succeed, we want entrepreneurs and investors rewarded when they take risks, when they create jobs and grow our economy. But the true measure of our prosperity is more than just a running tally of every balance sheet and quarterly profit report. I don't care how many ways you try to explain it: Corporations aren't people. People are people," Obama said, mocking a legally accurate but politically problematic comment from Romney early in the campaign.

” But the true measure of our prosperity is more than just a running tally of every balance sheet and quarterly profit report”
Yes it is!
I I I I I I I I I me me me me me me me me.
The rookie jerk sounds frantic.
Oh, I believe in him. Wish it were just a bad dream
If he’s pleading to half empty halls, spending all his time fundraising, and Wall Street’s money is backing Romney, this does not bode well for his re-election prospects.
Obama, you’re fired!
Obama opened to a half-empty stadium and they are celebrating it?
Let’s hope he contiues down this pathetic road. Soon he will be shedding tears for Julia and asking ‘folks’ to please faint while he is lecturing. Or hectoring. WHichever.
OSU is, aside from the usual assortment of deranged lib profs like every other college, pretty conservative.
I was truly shocked when Ohio went for Obama. I can promise it wasn’t my fault!
So now in the tradition of Marxist doublespeak the middle class has become the proletariat too. That is the change he pushes. Class warfare until there is no middle class. He is the destroyer of the bourgeois. EBT or elite was ever the goal of the left. Only to be thwarted by that nasty little notion of Liberty. Too bad the French forgot it. Hope enough of US wake up to it.
“Corporations aren’t people”
Who in the HELL are they.... slugs ?
Obama has got no concept of what business is.
Romney should have a cakewalk.
“I, uh, demand your, uh, complete loyalty!”
“Pull my finger again!”
I don’t think that ‘Please, please make me relevent’ is a good bumper sticker.
He needs to revisit the one about stopping the oceans’ rise and curing cancer or whatever the heck he promised in his immaculation.
After that, he can tell his supporters how blessed they are to have him.
Ever since that “performance” on Jimmy Fallon...I’ve smelled flop sweat.
This guy is very nervous. I think his internal polling is going in the toilet.
There. I fixed it.
“The rookie jerk sounds frantic.”
Notice how he’s giving speeches only at universities? It would appear that only children (and blacks too, of course) still “believe” in Obama. At least the children still have an excuse: it wasn’t but a couple of years earlier that they still believed in Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. And most of them still believe in Unicorns, Money Trees, Rainbow Power, windmills, and solar panels. And “believing” in Obama fits right in with that juvenile world view.
