Debate returns 2012 focus to fundamentals

Well what a difference a two weeks make. President Obama was back in the groove and his Mojo was working over time in last nights 2nd presidential debate. According to a CBS insta-poll Obama won this debate. http://tinyurl.com/cosq64h

In Debate’s Dance, Romney Has More Missteps

They didn’t seem to feel people’s pain; they mostly tried to wound each other. At their town hall debate on Tuesday night at Hofstra University, President Obama and Mitt Romney circled around each other like tomcats in an alley, at one point doing a little dance of dominance as they clashed over energy policy. http://tinyurl.com/ctcne4n

Energized Obama takes aggressive approach in second debate

A newly energetic and aggressive President Obama went directly after his Republican challenger from the first moment of their second debate to the last, attacking Mitt Romney’s business record, his positions on issues and his truthfulness during a heated encounter.

“Gov. Romney says he's got a five-point plan. Gov. Romney doesn't have a five-point plan; he has a one-point plan: Make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules,” Obama said during his answer to the debate’s first question.  http://tinyurl.com/btlyagt

President Bill Clinton To Rally With Louise Slaughter And Kathy Hochul

October 16, 2012 - 7:09pm

ROCHESTER, NY – This Friday, President Bill Clinton will hold a rally in support of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and Congresswoman Kathy Hochul in Rochester. President Clinton and Rep. Slaughter have worked closely together on a number of landmark initiatives.

“I’m excited to welcome my friend President Clinton to Rochester and Monroe County,” said Slaughter. “His visit will remind voters that the way to economic prosperity and a balanced budget is through lifting up the middle class and providing opportunity to all, not handing out massive tax breaks for those at the top and hoping it works out for the rest of us. That’s the choice in this election, and I’m certain that President Clinton will make that choice very clear on Friday.”

The event will be held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center on Friday, October 19. Doors will open at 3:30 p.m.
