    I will vote for President Obama next week. But I think he would be best served staying in DC being the President. If voters have not made up their minds now, then they can just stay at home.

    CNN, please update your system with todays polls, Obama is has an advantage in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. You are quick to update when Romney is ahead and take your time when Obama is up. I am watching you.

    Will Obama, at his stop in Vegas, apologize for his insensitivity of the deaths in Libya? Will this most arrogant President, in history, come clean? Will the media actually do some journalism? Not likely.

    Take all the time you need Mr. President to help get the victims back to normal. Even IF you don't come back to the campaign trail, YOU WOULD STILL HAVE MY VOTE and the millions of others who know how terribly devastating Willard would be to this country.

    God Bless America.

    Obama has to go derail all the lies of Mitt Romney. Romney does not know the truth or what he stands for. Vote OBAMA 2012

    Justamaz: You are beating a dead horse, with your broken record of the deaths in Libya. In the 7 years that followed 9/11, the two unfunded wars in the middle east, and the damnation of America by the world at the hands of gimpy the wonder chimp GW Bush. The whole world will never get an apology from GW Bush for the atrocities he has committed while he was president.

    What a stupid republican shill you are. Have a full box of tissues handy next Tuesday–you're gonna need them.

    Obama will do well more than Romney, his opponent Mitt is an out source pioneer, his investment is outside U.S, how can he grow economy well when he establish his empire in China, he cannot declare china currency manipulator, he is a lair, U.S will be worse with Mitt in White House, let us all support Obama

    The Obama Adminstration should not be blamed for the severe damage of hurricaine Sandy just because it made a quick turn to the left.

    @Rick McDaniel – Call it what you want. The President was doing his job. Unlike Mitt who was doing his "not campaigning" campaign stop in Ohio collecting items for the American Red Cross that they don't want collected in disasters. They don't have the staff to work with used clothing, soup, etc. Most Americans know that when there is a disaster the American Red Cross requests $ and they use it to buy exactly what is most needed. Did Mitt express any concern about damage to his own home state of Massachusetts? Oh, they are going for the President so it's not a concern.
