I fought for you, so help me win again, Obama tells Virginians

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama kicked off two days of campaigning in Virginia by telling a boisterous crowd Friday that he kept his promise to bring change that helped middle-class families, and now it was time for them to work to re-elect him.

"Because of the values we share, I believe in you." Obama told the chanting, cheering supporters in a Virginia Beach school gymnasium. "And I hope you believe in me, because I've kept that promise, and I fought for you and I'm going to keep on fighting for you as long as I have a chance to be your president."

    So what could Mittens say to a crowd of hard working middle class people?
    I don't think the tired old GOP mantra of "I got mine, screw you" will work any more.

    Look at the faces of the people. They look stunned. Guess they just took another day off work.

    The President has millions of fans, and unlike Romney's ONE FAN they don't wear knee-high white socks with shorts, and carry 33 pair of dirty underwear in their truck.
