Live streaming of President Obama in New Jersey:
Good job sir!
THAT’S what a CiC looks like.
Our President doin’ his job. Wonderful!
Now that’s a leader. Love my president.
By the way, we’re having a great day polling wise.
Notice how President Obama truly makes the person whom he is talking to at the moment, feel like they are the most important person in the world.
LOVE HIM! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I found this interesting and hilarious. Romney’s economic plan doesn’t pass muster at his alma mater.

Chip why are my comments not been shown when I post. I want persons to know that I love Prez.O and have his back as well. I need some answer
Hi Melly, you need to read the ‘House Rules’ here, your Twitter account is private so I have no idea whose side you’re on.
[They are jumping off cliffs, cesspool filling fast ...]:
“The spate of unsolicited anti-Obama text messages that have hit hundreds of cellphones in recent days appears to be the work of conservative activist Jason Flanary and his Virginia-based communications firm, ccAdvertising.
Every domain listed in previous stories about the controversy now displays Flanary as the registrant and lists a Centreville, Va., address and phone number, as well as an indication that the domain had been “suspended for spam and abuse.” Domain registrar GoDaddy.com unmasks registrants when they violate terms of service.”
[Take your baggage w/ you!]
The picture says a lot.
Breaking News: WIllard now supports FEMA………… of course.
This is just getting embarrassing for Mitt…honestly…how can u change positions so much when we got you on tape saying the contrary? Who is he? is he even for real?
Surprise, Surprise, Surprise. Mitt the flip flop liar has flip again.
I’ll take the guy down on his knees, never mind the one who has no idea which side to turn to give a hug to someone! Can anyone spell Awkward? Can anyone spell Gracious? Oh, PBO, you are amazing, amazing!!
Now this is hilarious.

Great find UT. LMAO
this is fricking AWESOME!!!!
The pathological lair issued a statement that he supports FEMA. Remember, that is coming from a psychopathic, pathological liar who has publicly stated that he will do away with FEMA as we know it.
Acute Romnesia kicking in.
Hey Jer, that man needs to be hospitalize or committed with that Acute Romnesia, because it has obviously gotten progressively worst in the waning days of this election. Obama Care does cover preexisting conditions.
I love you, FEMA!
(what a complete joke this man is)
Xcel Energy of Minnesota and Wisconsin is sending linesmen and 46 vehicles of equipment to West Virginia. The convoy started in Newport, a suburb of the Twin CIties, then stopped in Eau Claire, WI today to add additional linesmen and vehicles. They were specifically requested, the linesmen of MN and WI being noted for their abilitly to work rapidly in blizzard and icing conditions. They are the best!
I find it somewhat ironic that such a conservative state turns to two fairly liberal states for assistance. Midwesterners are generally more than willing to assist.
Other/additional Xcel workers are heading right to the east coast.
PBO request per his statement:-)
Team Romney are having a press conference/gaggle and they’re pushing the idea that they’re going to win PA, MN, and MI. Reporters are mocking them.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA. Team Romney live in a dream world. RT @ZekeJMiller: Russ: I think that we're in a great position to win MN, PA, MI— (@utaustinliberal) October 31, 2012

Ha, you peeps thought I am done for the day/night.
And I say, again, holy shit:
C-SPAN has LIVE video of Pres. Obama in NJ.
Cute Halloween Toon:
I see Plouffe, Carney, Souza, Marvin.
Also, does anybody else see a clear movement in swing state polling, toward the President, this past week? I do?
You know, right after Colun Powell endorsed the President?
hey Jovie. where have you been, i don’t think I’ve seen you since early this morning. things okay?
I am good, at OFA organizing things for tomights canvassing and phone banks.
Looks good, in Florida, Robney camp lying about early vote numbers.
of course they’re lying. Anytime they open their collective mouths they lie.
ps- appreciate all your hard work. Win or lose Fl, you’ve been invaluable.
Not just you Jovie41:

Juanita-Jean just has a way w/ words!:
“And I know that the Red Cross wanted money instead of food. But, golly, it’s Mitt Romney. If he gives them money, they’ll never know how to wait in line until he blesses them.”
If MITT Robney lived in 1776, chances are he would have said he supports King George.
Think about how he always takes the side the polls the best?
He’d have been one of the “loyalists” who fled to Canada and now WE’D be stuck with his snotty descendants.
afternoon all! Can’t wait to see videos of the President speaking in NJ. I’m sure he’s providing a LOT of comfort to those devastated by the hurricane.
I’m more confident than ever that President Obama will win, and my prediction is 347EV and that he’ll win all the swing states!
I think when all is said an done, there are some key factors why Mitt has lost, aside from his lack of character & lying

Chris Christie is being very effusive…….. did they change his meds?
he’s having a love in with PBO. So many wonderful words for our C-in-C.
Hey Lisa, I thought I seen Christi wipe a tear (I am not speaking facetiously) when President Obama was taking about not leaving no one behind. When you get a chance to review the tape, focus on Christi as PBO is speaking, especially about leaving no one behind.
Right….I saw it too.

Darn, that’s some desparacy:
In South Dallas they have a billboard: “Martin Luther King was a Republican. Vote Republican!”
Photo here: http://juanitajean.com/2012/10/30/south-dallas-yeah-right/
That myth has been debunked I thought. At least with jr. Senior might have been.
Yep, but they’re still pushing it in 2012!
tell them to keep in mind that MLK Senior’s republican party is different from this one. this one wouldn’t have him now if he painted his skin white and did the funky chicken.
“King never endorsed politicians and “took this position in order to maintain a bipartisan posture, which I have followed all along in order to be able to look objectively at both parties at all times.” We also know from his autobiography that he wrote to a supporter in 1956 that “in the past, I always voted the Democratic ticket.”
PBO quoted Christie: “thanks to the first responders who were helping shuttle people out…. telling them to get the hell out of here.” loose paraphrase!!!
OK, this is becoming repetitive: LOL!
“A Republican congresswoman accused the Obama administration of promulgating regulations that are undermining job creation at an auto manufacturer that has been defunct since 1988. She was responding to a question on Monday about Mitt Romney’s dishonest claims regarding Jeep moving its production overseas.
During an appearance on MSNBC, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) dodged a question about Romney’s debunked Jeep claims and instead attacked the Obama administration for issuing regulations that are harming workers at American Motors Corporation, a company once headed by George Romney. AMC was sold to Chrysler during the Ronald Reagan administration and its brands were then discontinued.”
Boo and howdy do to all my O peeps on this great getting up TODoween day!!!! I am relishing in the glow of some good positive stuff starting this morning with Axe promising to cut off his 40 year mustache if PBO loses Penn, Wisc, or Mich. to almost finalizing #2′s trip to Spain on the day after the election. So she will definitely be flying high on the 7th. The only negative is the camera we ordered is being shipped from New York and they can’t say when it’ll be sent or whether UPS can get it to her before she leaves.
My political take today is as I listen to PBO, I’m assured that this is the best man for the job. I do believe the other guy had nightmares last night. He dreamed of Christie chasing him around a sparsely filled rally arena.
forgot today was Halloween.
PBO: Commander-in-Chief. Everything a President should be for all Americans. BRAVO, Sir.
I love DWS!!!! she’s so smart and funny!!
So glad Pres. Obama was able to get this info out to a wider audience. Help is available.

Also wrong from Romney campaign about FL – the number of votes cast. It is 2,657,711. Not 2 million. Dems lead by 49,000 votes too.— Eric Jotkoff (@Eric_Jotkoff) October 31, 2012
I am always so impressed with President Obama in these kind of situations. He knows the exact right things to say. I have never seen anyone like him——-ever. He was informative about all aspects, reassuring and supportive to all affected, and very moving at the end——’this is what America is, we pull together, we take care of each other, we leave no one behind’ type thoughts. As I felt the emotion, I saw Gov. Christie try to quickly wipe away what I assume may have been a tear also.
Dotster, I seen it also. I responded to Lisa a few flights up on the very same thing. Good catch

More pics of PBO and Christie today.
While images of flooded homes and powerless streets continue to inundate the television airwaves, officials in most states affected by superstorm Sandy say that next Tuesday’s elections will take place as planned — with a few tweaks.
In some places, states have voting machines that can operate on battery power if the lights still aren’t turned on six days from now. And in other places, officials are expanding early voting access to allow affected voters to cast their ballots before Nov. 6.
So, it sounds like, everybody but New Jersey will be voting next week?
I don’t see how New Jersey can stage any kind of election by Tuesday. A couple of tweaks is not going to do it.
Jersey has 15 electoral votes!
Where did you see that NJ wasn’t voting? A lot of my family lives in NJ and they haven’t heard anything of the kind.
Jovie, in our PA county, we were told that there were enough generators to keep the voting going even if the electricity went out. I would bet Fema would be handing out a lot of generators to keep polling machines working next Tuesday in NJ. This will be a high priority for the president.
We are getting this done!

WaPo-ABC tracking poll: high marks for President Obama on Hurricane Sandy response
// President Obama gets sky-high marks for his response to Hurricane Sandy, which cut a brutal path along the country’s East Coast on Monday, according to the latest release of the Washington Post-ABC News tracking poll.
Nearly eight in 10 likely voters say the president has done an “excellent” or “good” job dealing with what’s been labeled a “super storm.” Almost as many give positive reviews to the federal government’s response generally. Even two-thirds of those who support Republican Mitt Romney in next week’s presidential election say Obama is doing well in this area. //
Wow! He didn’t get the props he deserved for bin Laden, which shocked me at the time, but at least he’s getting credit now. Spectacular. Christie’s response has helped immeasurably here, I believe — some people won’t think or say anything unless a republican says it first.
Whatever his reasons, and I don’t believe they’re all selfish——-as someone just said, the keynote speaker from the Republican convention just endorsed President Obama.
In WTF news. Wolf Blitzer called Chris Christie…..”Gov. Crispy”

If you wanted to destroy FEMA, but now love it, you have #Romnesia ———->>>>>> .@MittRomney— Sabreen60 (@QueenMerytAmon) October 31, 2012
This is the way it SHOULD have been over the past 4 years: republicans and democrats working together with our President in the best interests of the country. Imagine what we could have accomplished if the TeaOP hadn’t so callously and ignorantly obstructed PBO? They ought to be ashamed of themselves, but I don’t think they’re capable of that emotion.
The silver lining, the gift in all this unfortunate tragedy, may be that enough Americans may come to their senses to realize how powerful we are when we work together.
What a leader we have! As Michelle said, being President reveals who you really are, and America can see — once again — just how awesome this man really is.

I’m glad polling is showing approval of the President and the Federal Government. There was no panic before this storm…..just a very matter of fact preparation which worked. This shows the President’s temperament and method of operating to many who have not realized it before.
Yes, he is making the government work FOR us. The government is not our enemy, it is not the problem. In many instances it is the solution.
An anti-Muslim ad against PBO in Pennsylvania. Won’t link it but it’s extremely vile and disgusting, I’m worried that it might spur hate crime.
I knew republicans would get more uglier than ever if they were losing. Fear and racism. They have nothing.
The next days won’t be pretty.
