After 37 hours, 6,500 flight miles and six grassroots rallies that drew tens of thousands of supporters, President Obama’s frenetic battleground-state blitz came to a close Thursday night with a rally on a small airport tarmac overlooking Lake Erie.

“This is the final stop on our 48-hour fly-around all across America. We’ve been going for two days straight,” a visibly tired but spirited Obama told a crowd of 12,000 after taking the stage under starry skies….READ MORE

Kicking off a full day of campaigning across the crucial Buckeye State, Mitt Romney promised “big change” if voters push him to victory in November.

“This is a critical time for our country, and the choice of paths we choose will have an enormous impact,” Romney began. “We have huge challenges: the debts I mentioned, the fact that our schools are underperforming, the fact that college kids getting out of school this year can’t find jobs in half the cases, or jobs that are at college level. The fact that they have thousands and thousands of dollars in debt that’s on their back they’re going to have to be paying for.”

“These challenges are big challenges,” he said. “This election is therefore a big choice, and America wants to see big changes, and we’re going to bring big changes to get America strong again!”…READ MORE

“The President’s campaign is slipping because he can’t find an agenda. He’s been looking for it. There are only 12 days left. He hasn’t had a chance to defend or to describe it to the American people in our debates. And so the American people now have to recognize that given the big challenges we have and the big election we have, it’s time for a big change. And Paul Ryan and I represent a big change for America.” – Mitt Romney

And Paul Ryan and I represent a big change for America. We’re going to finally tackle the problems politicians have spoken about for years but haven’t been willing to deal with. We’re going to finally get America strong again with an economy to compete with anyone in the world. We’re going to help America get good jobs and rising take-home pay.”

President Obama on Thursday said he was “proud” and “humbled” to learn he has the support of former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who announced earlier that he is endorsing Obama for a second term.

“I’m grateful to him for his lifetime of service to his country both as a soldier and as a diplomat,” the president told 15,000 Virginians Thursday afternoon. “And every brave American who wears this uniform of this country should know that as long as I’m your commander in chief, we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known. We will be relentless in pursuit of our enemies. Those are promises I’ve kept.”…READ MORE

“For the last year, and four debates, three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate, the President’s been looking for a plan. He’s been looking for some way to help the gentleman I spoke about, some way to help the 23 million people that are out of work. He hasn’t been able to find a plan. He hasn’t been able to define what he’s going to do to make America strong going forward. I have.” – Mitt Romney

MITT ROMNEY: “Now, for those of you in your 40s and 50s, who have always anticipated that these would be the high earning years, the most productive years, the years that you’d be able to put a little away for retirement or perhaps help your kids with college, and yet you’re finding that’s harder and harder to do because incomes have been going down at the same time prices have been going up for things like gasoline and health care and food. I was speaking with a gentleman just the other day, and he said that he used to have a job at $25 an hour plus benefits, and now he’s only able to get a job at $9 an hour, and he wonders what’s going to become of him, what’s going to happen to his future. The President’s campaign slogan is ‘Forward.’ To this gentleman, things don’t feel like they’re going forward; it feels more like backward. To 23 million Americans, it feels like backward, those that can’t find good work. And so for the last — for the last year, and four debates, three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate, the President’s been looking for a plan. He’s been looking for some way to help the gentleman I spoke about, some way to help the 23 million people that are out of work. He hasn’t been able to find a plan. He hasn’t been able to define what he’s going to do to make America strong going forward. I have. I have a plan that will create 12 million jobs and rising take-home pay, and I’m going to help that man who needs that good job.”
