Where's the live blog for Crazy Uncle Joe?

Do you find it curious Mary C that President Obama is visiting Wisconsin 3 times in the last week of campaigning when his campaign spokes people continue to push the narrative that the President is focused on swing states that he knows the vote is close. Wisconsin is a battle tested conservative base that is energized and ready for this fight. Right now it's a 3 round fight and the President has been given 1 standing 10 count already.

The recession, which started before Obama took office, is responsible for the financial woes. The "apology tour," besides making no sense whatsoever from a national security standpoint, never happened. Give Barack Obama a second term.

I love those photos
Waukytalk November 03, 2012 at 08:31 PM
I think Obama cares more about his campaign than he does about his fellow Americans, the east coast Superstorm Sandy survivors! P.S, What is the barefoot guy supposed to be???
Bewildered November 03, 2012 at 08:41 PM
The barefoot (and most everything else) guy in the pictures is your average Obama supporter. Need I say more? Actually, it's a rare photo of Lyle in one of his infrequent trips outside his bungalow .
Debra Pries November 03, 2012 at 08:53 PM
Love it! He's right up there with Ted Nudget.....so sad !
Bewildered November 03, 2012 at 09:18 PM
Mitt doesn't need an opening act (or was Obama the opening act?) to draw a big crowd yesterday . Thousands ( yes with an"s") turned away at State Fair and 30,000 last nite in Ohio. BTW, who do you think the little girls where there to see? Obama or Katie Perry? Hey Patch, great headline: "Live Blog.........featuring Barry and Katie". Love making them co-headliners". Pretty blatant brainwashing.

@Lyle Just admit that you are the most popular blogger on Patch.

@Michael McClusky....Why would I make that claim?
Michael McClusky November 03, 2012 at 10:18 PM
@Lyle I was joking with you. Just relax and don't take everything so seriously.

Bren wrote: "The recession, which started before Obama took office, is responsible for the financial woes." Yes, but B.O. has done NOTHING to improve the situation. In fact, I now have to pay another 12% in health care premiums thanks to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Bren also wrote: "The "apology tour," besides making no sense whatsoever from a national security standpoint, never happened." Oh yes, B.O. made the United States appeared so good to the rest of the world. Maybe this will help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FGbDJuD2do Finally she wrote: "Give Barack Obama a second term." We can't handle another four years of B.O.

It's so sad that Obama wasted his promise to bring change to america. What a waste.
Marge Naslund November 04, 2012 at 12:25 AM
Where? In Ohio, his largest rally so far and really quite small when compared to Obama's rallies, people began leaving the rally during the middle of Mitt's speech. LOL
Veryvila November 04, 2012 at 11:19 PM
President Obama sure has done things since taking office to help. The Recovery Act was stimulus that went to every state to keep people employed and to hire more workers. It also included a middle class tax cut. Then President Obama stepped up to save the American car industry. He gave them a loan that saved thousands of jobs. He made sure to take out Osama Bin Laden who was plotting more attacks against America, and he has taken out most top Al Qaeda operatives. President Obama tells the truth and his word is his word. Romney lies and lies and lies and lies and is the most dishonest man to run for president.
Veryvila November 04, 2012 at 11:22 PM
Romney was not a successful governor and he left his job without completing his term. He is very unpopular in Massachusetts right now because of his lies and attacks that are dishonest.
The Anti-Alinsky November 05, 2012 at 12:21 AM
veryvila, If you take the money spent on B.O.'s Stimulus, divide it by the number of jobs, it only cost the tax payers 110,000 to create each job. NOT a good investment.

Nuitari - Yeah, Rafalca and Lyin' Ryan drew flies... and the other 5-people in Willard's crowd ran away too...
The Anti-Alinsky November 06, 2012 at 01:14 AM
Veryvila, that is a flat out lie. Romney served his full four year term before deciding to run for President in 2008.
John Wilson November 06, 2012 at 02:13 AM
The Anti-Alinsky - Willard, technically, did finish his term as Governor of MA; one could hardly say he took his job seriously or actually spent much time in MA…he really spent most of his time positioning himself for a presidential run in 2008... “During Mr. Romney’s four-year term as governor of Massachusetts, he cumulatively spent more than a year — part or all of 417 days — out of the state, according to a review of his schedule and other records. More than 70 percent of that time was spent on personal or political trips unrelated to his job, a New York Times analysis found. During his last year as governor, he was largely an absentee chief executive. In October 2006, for example, he was out of the state all or part of 25 days. His public schedules said he was spending “personal time in Utah” or “attending political events” in California, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, Texas and Wisconsin. He went to a fund-raiser on Oct. 6 in Georgia for the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, stumped on Oct. 12 for a candidate for governor in Pennsylvania and appeared on Oct. 31 in Idaho on behalf of another candidate. In December, his last month in office, he took a swing through Asia before vacationing in Utah. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/14/us/politics/mitt-romney-often-away-when-he-was-governor.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/06/04/494282/5-facts-about-the-massachusetts-economy-under-mitt-romney/?mobile=nc
The Anti-Alinsky November 06, 2012 at 03:55 PM
I expected an answer from Comrade John or one of the other extreme Leftists on this blog. First the lie, then the spin trying to justify the lie. A Governor is elected to run the state. There is no time requirement involved, and, very often they go out of state for various reasons, to promote the state, attend conferences, or heaven forbid, take a vacation. You try to jump all over his record, but the fact remains, Romney closed a huge budget gap, kept Massachusetts schools at the top of the education list, and had a great economy. Spin that Comrade John!
John Wilson November 06, 2012 at 05:57 PM
The Anti-Alinsky – Willard was born with an extreme sense of entitlement – shades of GWB & Walker here – and everything he did was only to increase his own personal sense of entitlement and public exposure. Whether that was trolling Paris during the Vietnam War looking for converts to the Mormon faith, he being the personal representative of GOD and all, networking to become a Bishop in the Mormon faith, obtaining Bain, with no personal or financial risk to him involved, and ruling that with an iron fist. His tenure at the Olympics was just another opportunity to raise his profile, network and create financial contracts that he refuses to divulge even today. The governorship of MA was nothing more than a strategic opportunity for him to further position himself in the political limelight so he could run for the presidency. Willard has always been only about Willard. MA has a balanced budget directive built into its constitution, so that had to happen; however, the Democratic Legislature was more responsible for that accomplishment than Willard was, as they routinely overrode his asinine vetoes. Today, MA has no love for Willard, and they had none when he departed the governorship either, leaving the state $1.2 Billion in debt… By any reasonable and rational standard Willard is nothing more than a very selfish, self-serving, psychopathic personality seeking the ultimate power at any cost to those around him. The good news is: That ends today or early tomorrow!

So Comrade John no longer provides and answer, he just jumps gears to another outlandish claim.
