8:25: President Obama delivers remarks at a campaign event at Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport
Livestream * C-Span * CBS 1 * CBS 2 * CNN
This was the crowd in Cleveland a couple of hours before PBO arrived:
Wow, Japa’s first?!
I haven’t seen FLOTUS since Monday night, it will be nice to see her tonight. Hurray FLOTUS.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Michelle Obama: “Whaaaaaaaat?!?! Wayne Rooney bought another squirrel for his head? Haven’t we been tortured enough?”
That is funny. And thank you Chips, second time today but you were too busy to recognize the other one. hint, hint
hint, hint – You’re too polite, Japa, unlike your buddy ‘A’ when he is in a similar situation.
Heh… In my defence, I’m just a baby.
Better late than never Japa – I hope!!!
FINE AS WINE!
Japa is kickin’ butt today! Go ‘head, go ‘head!
I’m trying wingman.
Any space left, Japa & PFI?
Third? I’m inching up.
Here!! Congrats, japa:)
Ooh. Gettin closer – # 7!
Did I mention that tomorrow is my birthday??????????????????????/ I quit counting quite a few birthday’s ago, but the # doesn’t mean a thing to me….I feel just like I did when I was a “20 something” I think it’s the fiestyness…..keeps me on my toes!
My darling second graders in class all sang Happy Birthday to me….and we all had Toostie Pops to celebrate. I was very touched. Kids are so awesome…
df, we will make sure Chips doesn’t forget.
Thank you, love:) She’s making cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PAR TEY!
Oh dear, Uh, oh how lovely! If somehow I miss wishing you a happy happy birthday birthday tomorrow, DF, please forgive me and accept this early greeting tonight! Have grand day!
Happy pre-Birthday, df. Have a blast !!
My daughter just asked to take me to lunch tomorrow :0 We both have the day off….think I’ll say yes:) thank you, EDP4BHO
Ooooooooh, it’s cake-baking time!!!!!!

Advanced b’day wishes, df. Makes you feel one day younger, doesn’t it ?
It’s PARTY time!

/face in palms/ ‘Oh dear! Df, I love you, but now Chips has a whole night to mess around. All this advance knowledge to Chips could prove dangerous. Groan.
Dangerous, I know:) Friday party tomorrow!!! Love you back, vc…
Don’t worry, have to find my dancing shoes, but I’ll be there.

Happy birthday eve, DF. I hope all your wishes come true.
Thanks, jackie:) Right now I only have one wish….it WILL be done!
Happy Birthday DF! I am glad you feeling so well. I definitely think feisty people never waste time dwelling on aging. I’ve been amazed at the many people in the TOD family who were born in October. My birthday was a couple of weeks ago (October 8th). I was under the weather so I did not celebrate it fully.
The Plane….The Plane……….PBOOOOOOOOO

Woot, AFI has landed!!
this is thrilling! Look at the crowd and the plane…love it.
I love this spectactular airport venue with AF1 coming in for this rally. This is a great ending.
A really stunning setting COS, it was breathtaking when AFI pulled in.
I love you I dooooooooo

Oooooh, the voice is nearly gone!
And the crowd is pumped…hoarse voice, AF1, #Romnesia and all!
Dear Willard Romney, EVERYONE knows you're suffering from a malignant case of #ROMNESIA. We aren't. Seek help, Ann knows you need it @edshow— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 26, 2012

Thank you Kreen!!

Honey and tea need to be on the agenda for our President…..and sleep.
This is his last stop on the tour. I take it that he will be resting his voice and body over the next couple days!
CB is bound to help body and spirit, I’m sure. Not so sure about the voice.
it’ll just make his voice worse. PBO should be resting his vocal cords, not exercising it as would be the case with cocoa butter.
We-e-l-l-l. Hell-o-o LisaLoves, it’s been a bit since we’ve touch base. I see you are still the same LisaLoves.
amen, amen, amen! you know i’m a big cocoa butter fan and anytime it’s being discussed, i’ll be there! how yoou doing, VC?
GREAT! This has been such a wonderfully positive week! Made all the more so because Mayoress rented that body-suited guy in the yellow ballet shoes to remind folks to leave the talking heads’ opinions and the poll gripes at the door! I’ve been relaxed and grinning pretty much all week as I’ve strutted through the village.
No cocoa butter till FLOTUS get home. She will have a event in Nevada tomorrow. So just take tea and honey till his honey gets home. Ha, Ha.
Yep, tough to watch.
I guess you’re speaking for yourself and yourself only. Because it’s not “tough to watch” for me, nor to the 12K in the crowd. They are more fired up than ever – the hoarseness of the voice is not what gets their attention, it’s the substance of what he says, and the quality of person he is.
I watched every single speech of his in the last two days. I don’t get tired of it, because indeed the substance is great and the man is one of the greatest statesmen I’ve ever seen.
Watching him tonight, I ached for him, that’s all. He’s asking too much of himself.
I know people worry about him and want him to be well. I do too, but PBO is a tough guy and I’m sure he expected that by the end of his tour, his voice would be hoarse. I know that my voice gets hoarse after just one night at a large party, sporting, or other loud public event. So I think he knows what do to take care of himself and his voice.
Beside POTUS travel with his own doctor.
God has his back because PBO walks in His Divine Will. This is how a real Christian acts. PBO doesn’t know he’s almost on empty because God is his neverending supply. PBO is the most awesome human being I have ever known. I watched with amazement and yes tears because he loves and cares about us all so much. .
How beautiful, idon. Just lovely and so true!
You know, idon, I also believe this to be true. Driving to the dentist today, I thought about all the candles we have lit over the past 5 years for PBO, DD4O will remember this from the first OFA blog. As I drove, I thought also about how PBO just doesn’t ‘get sick’, and how all this time while in office, despite grueling hours and constant work, we have not heard of him having so much as a head cold…. Tho maybe once he did seem like he was a bit under the weather. I too believe he is a prototype of the evolution of what humans can be should be, will be, and the PBO is so true and honest, God’s love runs throughout his veins, and throughout his life. The whole entire world loves this man, prays for this man, watch over him and bless him for the work he has taken on. He is who he says he is, he is real, he is our finest expression. We are all blessed for his presence.
Yes indeed we all are!
That was beautiful Pamela
Seeing all the pictures of the big crowds, smiling faces, PBO smiling back, great speeches, small moments, calling with OFA volunteers, jumping off the state; Our president should be exhausted (I’m sure he is), but it feels as though he has relaxed and is really enjoying himself.
Whewww PBO is tired…i am glad that this is the last stop….then he returns home….Flotus will be waiting,,,,,
#TrustBarack – Because he made the banks pay back every penny, plus interest on the bailout US Tax Payers funded cc @vj44— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 26, 2012
I stopped at CBS to see PBO and noticed instead that WMR was speaking, so I listened for 10 minutes. My take away is that his stump speech hasn’t changed and in his own mind he seems to have performed far better in the debates than viewers were aware. ;lol: Now! Now! You are not allowed to stone citizens in TODville You have to leave me standing so that I can have my ears cleansed by PBO’s voice and sanity.
Good evening TODbots! I have been so busy today I haven’t been able to keep up with the President. Now listening to him his voice is alittle horse. I hope he gets some rest tonight. Now to catch up on all that has gone on today.
PBO’s hoarse voice doesn’t faze this crowd. They are PUMPED, more FIRED UP than evah!
Today has been ridiculously wonderful – thank you Tampa, Richmond & Cleveland #Obama2012 (Richmond, October 25) http://t.co/if1kyD6T— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) October 26, 2012
And thank you Chipsticks for always being there for us, 24-7, and bringing us all these incredible pics. that the media neglects to show to the American people.
This is great, maryl1. I wish all women–Dem, Rep or Ind–could see this.
Ads like this one should be broadcast nationally. What the Republican women for Obama are saying is relevant to all the people who value and respect the rights of women.
#TrustBarack – because he has a plan, he's sharing it with all of us because unlike Willard's the #Arithmetic is valid cc @BenLaBolt— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 26, 2012
From last thread.
Can someone send Ron Christie some roaches so he’ll have some company……ugh. He’s despicable insect.
Man, you’re insulting the roaches. They don’t even wanna hang with that creep!
Give ‘em some glasses like his. They will see the resemblance.
Yardarm, I say send him some maggots instead of roaches! But, if we don’t have enough maggots then roaches are fine with me.
Why is C-Span not started yet? CBS has Mitt, and CNN does not like me, I don’t know why. Anybody getting PBO sound yet from any of the links.?
Don’t worry. Livestream clicked in for me.

can’t forget that maggot. Birds of a feather and all that
Hee. And GWBush! No one ever mentions that endorsement, for some unfathomable reason.
Warren Buffett and Bill Gates endorsed President Obama ? First time I heard. I mean, did they really endorse him for THIS election ?
Thank you Hope. Wow, I would love to see Buffett and Gates in an ad for Pres. Obama. Those guys are MORE successful than Romney as businessmen, aren’t they ?
I didn’t know about the Bill Gates and Zuckerberg endorsements, unless he means their longstanding support. Funny tweet.

His voice make him even more passionate. he is amazing. Thank you Pres Obama.
A triple podium slap!!!
Thrice as nice!
I gues that means he’s fired up!
Got settled in just as the plane came rolling in and was so excited because I missed all the other rallies (did catch up via video) but then….Daughter from out of state calls lol
So I saw the first half and the last sentences with the 3xs podium slap. It made my day!
Slappin’ that podium 3 times again! Business!
Two days in a roll, CNN live stream worked for me. Never did before 10-24-12.
Stevie Wonder sound goooooooood.
Oooo three slaps. It is done. Go home and hug your wife Mr. President. You’ve earned a rest…

first time that i noticed this…what is the Secret Service saying to the crowd…along the rope line
They looks particularly frantic around him tonight. I be nighttime crowds like this must be somewhat of a nightmare for them.
Yes, and that’s why they’ve purposely kept the crowds at manageable levels this year – not for lack of enthusiasm which the WORTHLESS MSM has been trying to peddle….
They’re seeing keep your hands visible.
ohhhhh…hmmmm….never seen them do this….do you think something has happened
busy day today but…….****’TWO DAYS BEFORE EARLY VOTING IN FLORIDA*********. Actually one day and 10 hours but you get the picture!!
Now please Mr. President, go home, see your girls and get alittle rest so you can get back going again.
I’m not watching Rachel tonight, some times she pisses me off. So no Rachel tonight.
What is Rachel talking about tonight Anniebella?
Yes she let’s her ego get in the way.
Me, too, anniebella, but so far, she’s hitting Romney/Ryan over hosting an event in Texas with Cheney and Glenn Beck. So far, so good.
So, because Mark Husted, Ohio SEC of State, mailed out an inordinate amount of absentee ballots, he now says that 800k has not been returned.
And because they font want to count them twice, those who sete issued absentee and vote in election day, will be given a provisional ballot.
Thus, to count that many provisional ballots and verify them, might take 2+ weeks.
What a Joke, this Guy should be fired.
Of course, the Robney camp leaked this to USA Today, to suppress vote…, I am sure of it.
Don’t fall for their games, Ohio!

That was the most amazing 36 hrs whirlwind campaign extravaganza I’ve ever seen in all my….er…um…..20 years. Yeah that’s the ticket. 20 years.
I say 29 years would be more believable, LunarS, especially as you mentioned your daughter calling from out of state. I’m older so I’d understand this age thing a bit ‘more’. I’ve been 39 and holding for a little while now myself.
No, o no, not busted, LS. Just sisters working together to edit and produce a more believable story.

Anybody know what happened with the OFA ccall tonight with Jeremy Bird? People logged on but nobody showed up to speak to us. They posted 2 different times so I think everybody’s confused.
I thought it was supposed to be on Friday…not today
Jeremy Bird a day ago
National Field Director in HQ Team
We’re on a full-on sprint to Election Day—and this campaign depends on all of us working together as hard as we can over the next 13 days.
So this Friday I’ll be hosting an online video call—broadcast live from the field in Ohio—to talk about the status of our ground game and our strategy for getting out the vote.
If you have any friends and family who want to get involved, make sure to invite them to join Dashboard before 5:30 p.m. ET on Friday, October 26th to tune in.
Well, that’s weird because all the reminder emails said today and lots of people were logged on. Thanks, df.
You’re welcome:) Pass it on…
Okay PBO’s tour is finished and desertflower is getting older by the minute! So we’d best GIT TA STEPPIN’!
Happy pre-Birthday, Lovely!!
I can actually DO that dance:) Thanks love!
Got me beat! But I do like to watch!
Breaking- we just reached 1 billion dollars raised.
That is so charming.
This and the Republican Women for Obama ads are really powerful. This is the election of the women. We are raising our voices in a way that will have all these crazy thugs scurrying back into their holes.
They think we are too busy or too dumb to know what they are up to. I know there is a big focus on the latino demographic, but it’s the collective women’s vote from every corner of this country that’s going to bowl them over!
And make no mistake. Women of the world are watching -Oh Yeah
oh my god!!! I love this ad!!!
This is an interesting looking site: Election Protection Coalition http://www.866ourvote.org/
Alright now… let’s Wobble…
When speaking about Republicans who just can’t be reached with reason, I mentioned to my 87 year old uncle that I called it cognitive dissonance. He said that he’d always heard it called impeccable ignorance. I think that’s a brilliant term.
Or in the case of some, impeachable ignorance. Tell you uncle he’s just coined a new term for me.
This version’s a bit more instructional (some us need a little help with the Wobble)…
That was a marvelous livestreaming you provided up above, Chips!! PBO was so inspiring!
CHICAGO — President Obama warned campaign volunteers Thursday that he could lose the election if they don’t work hard through Election Day.
“This is going to be a close election, so we just got to work really hard over these next 12 days. If we let up and our voters don’t turn out, we could lose this election,” he told a couple dozen campaign volunteers and staffers at a campaign office on Hyde Park Ave., near his home here.
He then sounded a more optimistic note: “Now the good news is, if our voters do turn out, we will definitely win the election.”
Obama’s stop here came after he became the first sitting president to cast an early ballot for himself.
After campaign rallies Thursday in Tampa, Fla., and Richmond, Va., and his stops in Chicago, Obama is headed for an evening rally at a Cleveland airport before retuning to the White House.

He voted for America! Just like we all are doing!
If he did, you would be quite deserving! You’ve been steadfast and unshakable in supporting him.
