President Obama is on the road for the next two days, traveling through eight states in less than 48 hours. We'll be bringing you some of the highlights right here, but for all the action—including videos, photos, and stories from the road, check out barackobama.tumblr.com.
The morning after his final debate with Mitt Romney, President Obama used his speech in Delray Beach, Florida to highlight his specific plans for the next four years:
“In this campaign, I’ve laid out a plan for jobs and middle class security. And unlike Mitt Romney, I’m actually proud to talk about what’s in it—because my plan actually will move America forward. And, by the way, the math in my plan adds up. If we’ve got any math teachers out there, you can go ahead and look in this plan, and you’ll see that the numbers work. I won’t be running the okey doke on you.
“If you want to take a look at it, you check it out at barackobama.com/plans. Share it with your friends. Share it with your neighbors. Share it with your coworkers. Folks who are still not convinced, they can look right here and find out what it is I intend to do in a second term. There are still people out there who are trying to make up their minds … I ask folks, compare my plan to Governor Romney’s. See which plan is better for you and for America’s future.Read More…
Supporters of all ages came out to support President Obama, Vice President Biden, and First Lady Michelle Obama this week. Check out a few of the highlights—including the President's surprise visit to a field office to make a few calls.
"I come see Joe Biden whenever he comes to town, because Joe Biden speaks from the heart. I relate to him, he relates to me. He and President Obama—I appreciate what they're doing for this country."
—Kenny, a proud Veteran for Obama who saw the Vice President in Fort Pierce, Florida
When Vice President Joe Biden hit the stage today, he was fired up about a new term that gets to the heart of the choice between Obama-Biden and Romney-Ryan: “Romnesia.” Here’s what he said about it:
“[Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan] have two core principles that they’ve been running on for the past three years. The first one is a $5 trillion tax cut and significantly cutting entitlement programs and education programs. But all of a sudden you heard Governor Romney claim, ‘A $5 trillion tax cut? What are you talking about?’ All of a sudden, as my little granddaughter Natalie would say, ‘What happened? Did Casper the Ghost steal it?’ I mean, where did it go? That was the core of what they’re running on.Read More…
With hundreds of women flanking the stage in Fairfax, Virginia, to explain the other presidential candidate’s constant backtracking and sidestepping, President Obama introduced a new medical term: Romnesia.
President Obama goes on to list the many symptoms of Romnesia, but we’ll just list a few of the highlights:
- If you say you’re for equal pay for equal work, but you keep refusing to say whether or not you’d sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal work -- you might have Romnesia.
- If you say women should have access to contraceptive care, but you support legislation that would let your employer deny you contraceptive care –- you might have a case of Romnesia.
- If you say you’ll protect a woman’s right to choose, but you stand up at a primary debate and said that you’d be delighted to sign a law outlying -- outlawing that right to choose in all cases -– man, you’ve definitely got Romnesia.
Don’t let Romnesia afflict the your friends. Make sure they know what’s at stake for Virginia’s women.
Today in Fairfax, Virginia, President Obama diagnosed Mitt Romney with a severe case of "Romnesia," a condition that conveniently makes the Governor forget his own positions on the issues. Luckily for him, Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions. Watch President Obama lay out the symptoms of Romnesia, then share it with your friends and family to make sure they don’t catch it.
“I'm fired up about this weather. I mean, I've got to say that generally when I look at a trip to New Hampshire in October, I'm not thinking it’s going to look like this. But this is spectacular. It’s good to be back.”

It was a beautiful fall day in Manchester for the President’s visit, and thousands of Granite Staters packed a park to see him speak about the stark choice that was on full display in Tuesday’s debate.
“I’m here for the chance to see him in person. I couldn’t be more proud of his performance at the debate this week. Our parents had JFK, and we have Barack Obama. When Mitt Romney said he cared about 100% of the American people, I knew that was a slam-dunk moment for the President—because it’s just not true.”
“The economy is coming back—I have faith that we’re on the right track. We can’t derail this progress by electing Romney. If you watched the debate this week, you know President Obama is the candidate working for the middle class.”
