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!"

An Ohio motorcycle enthusiast´s family has carried out their father´s long-laid and elaborate funeral plans, that were 18 years in the making. Billy Standley, 82, of Mechanicsburg, Ohio, was buried Friday, embalmed atop his 1967 Harley Davidson and encased in a giant plexiglass casket. 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.

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
