With Star-Studded Blitz

Milwaukee – After thousands of ads, hundreds of stump speeches and a record war chest of campaign cash, President Obama is banking on a final burst of star power to boost his get-out-the-vote effort in the final 72 hours of the 2012 presidential campaign. As Obama and his top surrogates – Vice President Joe Biden, first lady Michelle Obama and former President Clinton – barnstorm the battlegrounds this weekend, they will have a cast of Hollywood stars and music icons at their sides. The pairings are aimed at driving turnout, particularly among young and minority voters,

And like the man, I'm sure the crowds will be small.

It's just amazing what passes for a "star" now. Several of the singers are one-hit wonders who will whiz through their $$$ in no time and a bunch of C- and D- list actors and actresses. I've seen better acting at high school plays.

Good idea. I am sure that the average unemployed American who lost his home, can't find a job, is on food stamps and has lost everything over the last four years, really identifies with millionaires and billionaire Hollywood actors and music superstars. After all me an P-Diddy got the same 22 inch rims on our pimped out Escalades. So it's cool. We rollin low and slow bouncin with the beat and dancin to the music all the way to elecshun dayfor our Homeie Be Rock.

Had to laugh at their "stars." I saw that Stevie Wonder only had a handful of people show up at his last appearance. I wonder if that's the "rally" they were talking about in this article?

I read a lot of names of has-beens and never-heard-of-'ems in that bunch.

Hey! why isn't Madonna there, shouting to the crowd that they'd better vote "for f***ing Obama" who's a "black Muslim"? like she has done at recent concerts?

If i could, i'd like very much to be at Romney's Manchester, NH event, with Kid Rock! ;)

I know, that would be tempting for him to say. But, with all the class the future President has.....he will thank the American people for believing in our country again.

Every time I see that flap eared clown strut out on a stage like a rock
star I know how Chief inspector Dreyfus felt in the Pink Panther movies.
Obama is Clouseau! He's completely incompetent and completely unaware of
it. He actually thinks he's the greatest President we ever had. When I see all
those people cheering for him and it drives me freakin nuts that they cant
see what an incompetent boob he is. Its unbelievable. Gotta go. Some guys
in white coats are here.

Today Stevie Wonder had a street concert for Obama and attracted Fluke size crowds.
" In an unannounced event, Wonder performed for a small crowd of about 50 people a few blocks
from the veritably besieged Cuyahoga County early voting site."

My poor former best friend of the 80s is not very political but thank goodness she voted already (NOT for Obama). But she called me from down south telling me she watched this concert for all the storm victims. She was all happy that Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and a bunch of other oldies were playing. I told her, that wasn't for any victims...it was for Obama's campaign. You could almost hear the disappointment in her voice. I said, they are all Obama supporters. Every one of them! She went into semi-denial saying she doesn't know and doesn't care -- she just thought it was great they did their songs as ballads and did an a'capella version of Under the Boardwalk. I was glad she already voted...cuz I was getting a headache from the conversation.

Today, wife and I went to several garage sales. At one of them, the sellers had a computer printer poster of Øbama,, and his slogan (one of his slogans) "Let's Get To Work"- I pointed the poster out and said to the wife loudly, so all could hear, "Look, these people are Øbama supporters- let's get out of here!" Almost everyone looked at me, then the poster I pointed to and they all left, about three couples. The guy selling the junk flipped me the bird when we drove off. Wife told me, "You should not do that!" I told her, "We must speak out. The time for polite silence and tolerating these scum is past. We've been silent for way too long!"

A couple of hundred people turned up at the funeral which was held outside so all of Standley´s biker friends could attend, two even arriving riding their own motorcyles.

When a brain tumor took away Dorothy Holm´s ability to speak, she picked up index cards and began filling them, edge to edge, with seemingly random, indecipherable sequences of letters. Her grandchildren saw her scribbling and thought she was leaving them a code — but it was one the preteens couldn´t crack. Eighteen years later, the puzzle has been solved after one of Holm´s granddaughters posted images of a card online. In just 13 minutes, a MetaFilter.com user figured out that as Dorothy Holm was dying, she was writing out prayers.

A U.S. Coast Guard heavy icebreaker will leave Australia for Antarctica on Sunday to rescue more than 120 crew members aboard two icebreakers trapped in pack ice near the frozen continent´s eastern edge, officials said. The 122-meter (399-foot) cutter, the Polar Star, is responding to a Jan. 3 request from Australia, Russia and China to assist the Russian and Chinese ships because "there is sufficient concern that the vessels may not be able to free themselves from the ice," the Coast Guard said in a statement. The Russian research ship Akademik Shokalskiy has been trapped in ice-clogged Commonwealth Bay

Supreme Court Refuses to
Block Texas Abortion Law

A sharply divided Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state´s clinics to stop providing abortions. The justices voted 5-4 to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The court´s conservative majority refused the plea of Planned Parenthood and several Texas abortion clinics to overturn a preliminary federal appeals court ruling that allowed the provision to take effect. The four liberal justices dissented.

Anthony Stokes, the 15-year-old boy whose family said he was initially denied a place on the heart transplant waiting list because of "noncompliance," has received a new heart. Anthony underwent the five-hour heart transplant surgery at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, family spokesman Mark Bell told ABC News. He is now resting and in recovery. "I would like to thank everyone involved, and that we will update everyone throughout the day," Melencia Hamilton, Anthony´s mother, said through Bell. Doctors reversed their decision to keep Anthony off the transplant list on Aug. 13.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
