Obama campaign hopes to capture buzz in energized New Hampshire

Chicago (CNN) - While the political world is focused on the Republican primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday, President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is also getting out the vote, quietly testing its organization in what promises to be a key swing state in November.

Just like in Iowa last week, Obama for America plans to use Tuesday as a kind of trial run, a chance to test the strength of the campaign's existing volunteer base and recruit new supporters who might be energized by the state's political mood.

    I see New Hampshire as a state capable of making logical conclusions. President Obama has helped America recover from an economy crash that resulted from eight years of Republican rule. He found a way to end a hopeless war in Iraq – a war started by President Bush with fraudlent intelligence information. President Obama accomplished his successes in the face of a Republican effort to obstruct every initiative designed to stimulate our economy – including 95 filibusters of everything including ideas they approved in committee. They committed political terrorism. I believe residents of New Hampshire are better than the "red states" and can use their brains to select a candidate. We'll see...

    I really don't see any of these clowns, or whoever comes out the whiner(sic), beating a president who has helped turn the economy around for some, killed bin laden, killed the Somali pirates, helped the American auto industry rise again, etc., etc.

    If Obama is elected again in 2012 then you will have nobody to blame if you don't go out and vote.

    This is with out a doubt one of the worst Presidents we have ever had with all his back door appointments and just bad leadership.

    When you have your chief of staff quit in an election year that doesn't say much for our wonderful dictator does it.

    Everyone needs to put down the crack pipe and stop drinking the kool aid and wake up.

    We can't afford another four years with his run away spending and not enforcing the laws we have on the books now.

    I didn't ever think I would see the day when our own government would sue a state for passing a law that that our federal government would not enforce.

    Look around every country requires you to carry ID to show you are legal and vote.
