Obama shifts to campaign mode

2012-05-05 21:00

Columbus - President Barack Obama is using the first official rally of his re-election bid to brand Republican rival Mitt Romney as a willing rubber-stamp for failed policies championed by extreme House Republicans.

Obama told an enthusiastic crowd at Ohio State in Columbus that America's had a tough time rebounding from a deep recession. But he said it's come too far to turn back now.

The noisy rally at a campus basketball arena was the first of two on Saturday for the Democratic incumbent.

Obama has raised cash and given campaign-like speeches for months, but Saturday's rallies are the first events formally organized by his campaign apparatus.

    If a balanced budget and lower debt is old and obselete then I guess he has a point. He has borroed in 3 and a half years more than all the previous US Presidents combined.

      @Ouklip - your statements has undertones of anti black government... where were you when the village idiot (Bush).. was President of the US... how much was the ME invasions costing the US? When Obama won the election... all the US news agencies were saying that he inherited the biggest mess from the previous president than any other US president in US history... he will either be the 'fall guy' or will rebuild the US... I suggest you open your eyes to other colours... I may not agree with some of his policies, but under the circumstances, I think he is doing a great job.

      Anti-black government Joe? I don't see that at all in what Ouklip has written. If you're carrying actual pain from past prejudice, or have crafted a manipulative pseudo-victim mindset, yes.

      Joe, Yes, you three amigos, are a good team together. The three of you pick up about 98 % of all "thumbs down" in total, on all these news24 sites. So which means, that your rather absurd and often childish thoughts, added with plenty filth, are shared by less than "2 % " of readers !! I can live with that !!! Easily !!!

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-05-06 17:48

      Joe, It actually leaves me stone cold what you think of me !!! And I hardly ever, give anyone either a 'thumbs up or down' To call me a racist, shows clearly that you are nothing but a SWINE !! Why don't the three of you start a BS club, than you can take turns, making stupid and dumb comments They should make you; "CHIEF OF FILTH" !!!!

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-05-06 17:51

      @Fred - What hasn't? Anthony's finger in your ass or out of your ass? @Anthony - you think I give a rat's ass what you think? you are a racist swine? you and Freddie boy sit the whole day and punch negative votes... like that should worry me... The only thing you guys are good for, is insulting others... show me one post, where you actually made a contribution... you 'box'

    If you are mittney romney commenting l can understand your antiObama sentiments but that he was carrying the burden of a huge deficit, overstreched domestic borrowing a huge debt coz of unnecwssary wars should be a documented fact. That he has done a better job under the circumstances is no reason to demonise evry effort he has shown to stabilise the nation.

    @anthony... don't be embarrassed that you are a swine..., albeit not a kosher one, but swine and racist... let's take stock... You came onto this post; I said nothing against you... you pick a fight with me, you insult Patrick and Fidel, behind there backs, who are obviously, not posting here... you make no contribution to THIS post... what is your problem... trust me... you don't want to F##%k with me.. I have people like you for breakfast... then you go on quoting what I said about you and you leave the best part out... i.e. 'you box' Maybe, I should try and get hold of Patrick and Fidel... (I never met them) and see what they say about you... What is your intention, swine?
