On the Trail: Friday, September 7

(CNN) - The two parties' political conventions are over, and with 60 days to go until Election Day, both campaigns are out in force Friday. And they're headed to some familiar territory: Iowa and New Hampshire, the two states that kicked off the caucus and primary season back in January. Both are key general election battlegrounds.

Mitt Romney, who spent the last several days in Vermont preparing for the debates, will make campaign stops in both states, as will President Obama and Vice President Biden.

(As Romney flies from Iowa to New Hampshire, the Obamas and the Bidens will be flying from New Hampshire to Iowa.)

Paul Ryan, the GOP vice presidential candidate, campaigns in Nevada.

See the full schedule after the jump.

12:20 p.m. ET: The Obamas and the Bidens hold a campaign rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

1:00 p.m. ET: Mitt Romney holds a campaign rally in Orange City, Iowa.

2:45 p.m. ET: Paul Ryan attends a campaign rally in Sparks, Nevada.

6:20 p.m. ET: The Obamas and the Bidens hold a campaign rally in Iowa City, Iowa.

7:10 p.m. ET: Mitt Romney holds a campaign rally in Nashua, New Hampshire.

    The non working wife is going to speak to a bunch of horse people in sonogram and va gi nal probe of pregnant women in virginia today.
    She will be in Loudon County which is horse country in this area speaking to her own kind. Let's see horse people = $$$$$
    That $77,000 deduction Rafalca (beautiful horse BTW) is getting old because it seems that you do everything but ride the deduction horse and if it's owned by two others how do "you people" split the money?

    So Obama gave no specifics even though on how he is going to fix the economy. After all the hype coming fr Axelrod and Cutter that speech last night was a re-hash of the 2008 speech.
    Yes lets have 4 more years of incompetence. GM is losing money at record levels. A lot of GM (republican) dealers were closed down.
    And for all the stars that came out accusing Mitt of outsourcing, tell me this stupid hollywood out of touch people. Have you ever been on a set that was filmed outside the country? Eva? Scarlett? That is called outsourcing jobs overseas!

    Ten reasons why Mitt Romney is already history:
    “Corporations are PEOPLE, my friend!”
    “375,000 isn’t a lot of money (to make in one year).”
    "The banks are scared to death. They're feeling the same thing that you're feeling."
    "I’m not concerned with the very poor... that’s not my focus."
    “I’ll bet you $10,000, right here, right now….”
    "Don't take money from the government, just ask your parents."
    “I’m SEVERELY Conservative!”
    “Some of my friends own NASCAR teams.”
    “No, no, no… I like (healthcare) mandates. Mandates work!”
    “I can relate to black people very well indeed. My ancestors once owned slaves.”

    Democrats champion the causes of the poor, the elderly, the sick, the disabled.
    Christ championed the causes of the poor, the elderly, the sick, the disabled.
    Who does the GOP champion? The wealthy bankers and Wall Streeters.
    Didn't Christ throw the money-changers out of the temple?

    • The ability to effectively tap into those Resources and utilize them to create jobs requires knowledge, education, innovation and technology.
    • Civilizations exist due to some degree of order and law and without it there is chaos and no possibility for a Gov to be established to provide and Regulate Order and Law for the benefit of humans that co-exist in the same location.

    • If there is no Gov, then by logical deduction we cannot have Civilization. If there is no Civilization and no form of agreeable Gov; I maintain it is impossible to achieve a sustainable economy for the masses.
    • Gov is given power and authority by people to Regulate and Implement Policies and Laws for the benefit of the people. It is the Gov’s job to:
    o Ensure Domestic Security and Safety
    o Ensure Domestic Economic Stability
    o Protect the Rights of its Citizens
    o Ensure its Citizens have Equal Opportunities
    o Promote Freedom, Democracy, Capitalism and Free Markets
