New Obama video for Boxer

(CNN) - Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer received some help from the president Tuesday in a new web video on her campaign website and on Youtube.

The minute long spot, which is not airing on television, shows footage of Obama at a California campaign event earlier in the year.

"You have in Barbara Boxer a sub-compact Senator with a seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy," Obama says in the video. "I expect you to be out there making phone calls and knocking on doors and rallying the troops to make sure that you return Barbara Boxer to the United States Senate."

In the footage from the rally, Obama talks about how he and Boxer will continue to create jobs and rebuild the economy together. He stumped for her in April and May of this year and sent an email on Saturday to urge grassroots organizers to get involved with the campaign.

Boxer is locked in a tight race with former Hewlett Packard CEO, Republican Carly Fiorina. In the latest CNN/Time/Opinion Research Poll of likely voters released September 29th, 52 percent of respondents said they would back Boxer and 43 percent said they would back Fiorina. The survey had a sampling error of 2.5 percentage points.

    This is why Carly Fiorina will win. Barbara Boxer represents only Obama in her Senate votes. Obama is not even a California resident. We need someone who is interested in representing California.

    California and America are fortunate Carly Fiorina has stepped up to the challenge of public service. She is a brilliant woman who understands how to make good things happen. She will not be Obama's lap puppy from California. He has proven he does not know how to make things work.

    Fiorina is a scumbag and a failure as CEO of HP. Why would anyone consider voting for a CEO that got fired for poor performance and endorsed outsourcing 10's of thousands of jobs to Commie China & India?

    Remember, people, our so-called "liberal" media is trying to discourage Dems from voting with phony landline polls that overstate support for the GOBP. Ignore their propaganda and make sure you, your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers get out and vote no to the lying, fearmongering teatards.

    Obama / Boxer 1 Jobs 0

    Together, Obama and Boxer will fight to ensure that NO jobs are created outside of government, unioned jobs.

    The only jobs Obama and Boxer can create is Government jobs that cost the American taxpayers!! They hate business which is the only real job creators in the US that actually benefit the middle class!! Whine all you want about businesses and Wall Street but they give you a paycheck that allows you to buy all that cheap chinese crap you buy from Wal Mart, Best Buy or Rooms To Go. So stop your whining about the Repubs sending jobs overseas or quit supporting overseas suppliers by shopping at Wal Mart!!!

    Barbara Boxer is going to win. It's going to be hilarious seeing Republican's faces when they can't even take control of the Senate.
