Obama to hit trail after debate

(CNN) - President Barack Obama will hit the campaign trail following the Wednesday presidential debate, stumping in four states rated on the CNN Electoral Map as toss ups, according to schedules released by his campaign and the White House.

On Thursday, Obama will hold an event in the debate host city – Denver - then continue on to Madison, Wisconsin, to meet with supporters, his campaign said.

He will then return to Washington before holding events in Virginia and Ohio on Friday.

His Virginia event will be in Vienna, the White House said, before an event in Cleveland.

Obama's campaign said it was rescheduling a previously announced event in Columbus, Ohio, for the following Tuesday.

His Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, has not yet announced post-debate campaign plans.

Both candidates are in debate preparation mode. Romney is in Massachusetts but plans to travel to Colorado on Monday, while Obama heads to Nevada for debate prep on Sunday.

    Pres.Obama campaigns everywhere where as Romney the STENCH stays within an 8 state plan,how you gonna win going only to only 8 states is beyong me and his staffers are eliminating some of those because of voters lack of interest in the Mormon moron..You'll see after the debates just how much a bump or thud Romneys gets,more of a dud if he's like he was in the primaries where all his primary challengers ate him up!!Remember republicans Romney didn't win with brains,he won with money out lasting everyone money wise,but this ain't the minor leagues anymore buds,he's going up against the big boys now!!

    Maybe he'll run into some of our Congressmen out there on the dusty trail and figure out what to do in the Lame-Duck session to fix the economy.

    Obama promised that seniors would not have to pay federal income taxes if he got elected.. Another broken promise. Where are you, seniors?

  8. ThinkAgain: Hey networks, fact-check the debates in real-time and put it in the crawl!

    Presidential debate broadcasts should fact check the candidates statements in real time and have it appear as a crawl at the bottom of the screen.

    Since President Obama and Romney have both made several appearances before the public, most of their statements made at the debate could be easily fact-checked beforehand and then displayed in real time. New statements made could be easily checked by a relatively small group of fact-checkers and then displayed. All sources would be cited and a compilation of results (true, mostly true, false, mostly false, etc.), sources and detailed explanations could be posted on the Commission on Presidential Debates website.

    This would put the candidates on notice that they can't lie during the debates – and would greatly help inform American voters.
