"Betting on America," President Barack Obama hits the road on Thursday debuting the latest in a string of slogans adopted and then discarded as he seeks a cogent political meme as the economy drags.

He will strike his new theme on a two-day bus tour of rust belt swing states Ohio and Pennsylvania, where he will skewer rich Republican foe Mitt Romney, painted by his campaign brass as a tax-dodging outsourcer of American jobs.

Where is Mitt? I wish he would be ahead of the Communist in Chief during these tours. Attacking with his own plans instead of defending against attacks.

On paper, this president has all the right ingredients for a whopping defeat.

Bad economic news,an angry and frightened electorate, a rudderless campaign that seems to worry more about what slogans they should run with, ect ect

Yet the GOP throws BHO a lifeline and nominates Mitt

I just rec’d an email stating that Pawlenty and Jindal will be in Parma, Ohio tomorrow at a counter rally while Obama is in town delivering his spiel.

Riding around in a million dollar bus , bought by the citizens of the United States for his personal use during his campaign.

In fact we bought two of them.

Why does he need fund raisers when the taxpayers are subsidizing his campaign?

I saw Donald Trump on Greta and he said Mitt would be out swinging after the 4th. very hard at Obama and Obama Care would be attacked by him and his team.

Every Obamaton who listens to Fearless Leader prate on tv, radio, or in person is wondering what The Great Spreader is going to do for them. What wealth is Obama going to take from other people and give to them?

Is Obama touring states and communities ravaged by bad weather?

Is he rolling into towns without power, without AC?

On a day of an annual holiday to celebrate freedom from oppression a tyrant is begging for more money so he can make America cancel all future 4th of July celebrations?

You betcha he will make this holiday illegal if re-elected.

“Pathetic”

Agreed. The notion of betting carries the following context:

That you are not at cause in an event upon which you are placing a personal stake, but that you will sit back, watch, do nothing, hope for the best, and feel entitled to a profit if the team you bet on happens to succeed. Further, if you lose the bet, you blame the team upon which you bet and say they weren’t as smart or as skilled as you thought ... and say ‘well I shouldn’t have bet on them,’ but there is no real responsibility in the outcome.

In short, he’s betting that Americans are silly enough to believe him. It’s actually quite cynical.

Reagan bet on himself, Maggie bet on herself. And their countries bet on them, not the other way around.

So yeah - pathetic.

Correct you are. In 2006, 2008,and again in 2012 the Democrat Party will bet on the stupidity of the American voter. The evidence has shown when one bets on the stupidity of the American voter, they never lose.

He needs a fundraiser because his usual suspects are seeing the light and would rather donate to congressional and senate candidates than throw their money away on a loser!!!In my opinion Zero is not doing nearly as good as the polls indicate.....polls are being skewed by over sampling democrat voters in an attempt to keep this bozo in office.

Is this another one of those "bus tours" where the buses and entourage meets Air Force One at the airport?
