Obama-Biden begins final push for Ohio vote at Dayton Rally

DAYTON — President Barack Obama went on the attack against challenger Mitt Romney on Tuesday, stirring up a Triangle Park crowd of 9,500 and trying to create a surge of momentum to carry him from Monday night’s final debate through the final two weeks of the presidential campaign.

Obama was making both his first Dayton campaign appearance and his first Ohio appearance with Vice President Joe Biden this year Tuesday. But it was part of an onslaught of Ohio visits from both sides, as political analysts continue to identify Ohio as perhaps the most important of 10 swing states that will decide the election.
....

Obama drew his biggest cheers at Triangle Park when he said his Republican opponent suffers from a condition called “Romnesia.”

“If you’ve come down with a case of Romnesia – if you can’t seem to remember the positions that you’ve taken not just four years ago but four days ago, if you don’t remember the positions that are on your website … you don’t have to worry, because Obamacare covers preexisting conditions. We can fix you up!” Obama said.

2. Long lines, long wait...standing for hours without resting but

very much worth it. Be sure to hydrate the night before the event. I see your event is in the evening...that could be a plus. The campaign provided water...I saw 2 elderly go down with heat stroke. I attended to one briefly....Paramedics were extremely prompt with response.

Experienced a very community-bonding feeling about the event.

Get out the vote is ON!

Check out the Dayton Daily News Pictures. Gives you a little idea of the festivities...

3. I saw him twice in 2008

And again in 2010 on a Presidential visit.

This one is outdoors and at an airport, I think they did so they could have a huge crowd.

4. The Dayton event had limited tickets.

The attendance was a little over 9,000...all tickets used. I would of loved the event to of been a 5th Third Ball Field...this would alleviate the hours of standing without a break; but they stuck with the outside forum....

You could just sense that Obama is genuine, sincere and compassionate. The crown was all inspired, all fired up...A great event for Dayton Ohio.
