Obama expected to 'come out swinging' at Tuesday's debate

After near-universal bad reviews of his first presidential debate with Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama will bring more energy and passion to his second showdown with the GOP nominee, advisers to the president said Sunday.

Yet the come-out-swinging attitude many Democrats crave could be hindered by the debate's town hall format, which requires a likability factor not completely compatible with aggressive attacks. http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/14/politics/debate-preview/index.html?hpt=hp_c2

The 3 states that may decide the election

With less than a month until Election Day, the primary battlefields for the presidential campaign can be found in just three states: Ohio, Florida and Virginia.

In these big three, home to a combined 60 electoral votes, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are spending both the most money and the most time. Over the last two weeks, the candidates and their allies have aired the most TV ads in Ohio, Florida and Virginia, in that order. And over the same period, Obama and Romney have held more than three times as many campaign events in the big three than they have in the other six swing states combined.

Obama Campaign Sign Vandalized With Racist Message In Front Of Texas Woman's Home (PHOTO)

A Texas woman said one of her neighbors had to inform her of removing a sign on her front lawn that was vandalized with racially insensitive and vulgar language.

According to The Raw Story , a 34-year-old Mckinney, Texas, resident named Cassy Zobel discovered that someone had covered her Obama yard sign with the words "NIGGER LOVER--Obama Sucks D*ck!" on Friday morning. Although she uncovered the sign and replaced it on her lawn, it was then stolen on Sunday night.

Zobel, who is white, identifies herself on her blog "Blue Chick in a Red Barn," as a liberal feminist in the heart of Texas. She took to the website on Friday to issue a response and a warning to the culprit. http://huff.to/TL7FRo
