CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Don’t expect President Barack Obama to try to reinvent himself next week at the Democratic Party’s national convention.

Instead, he and a slew of his defenders will seek to convince voters to stick with the president they know rather than gamble on someone new, a challenging task given that most Americans say the country is heading in the wrong direction.

Obama’s target audience is the small sliver of undecided voters in battleground states likely to make the difference in a contest that remains deadlocked just over two months from Election Day.

His campaign will also try to revive some of its insurgent, grassroots appeal from 2008, turning to technology to let people across the country participate in the convention – and help Obama’s team collect more data on voters.

After proving that he couldn’t handle the mess in 2009, WHAT makes you think he can handle it in 2013, now that it’s twice as bad?

I don’t beg for a damn thing, I work for what I have, always have and always will. You dems just keep holding your hand out for freebies, those days are about over. So it is okay to call a former Governor and current presidential candidate twiddle dumb, but in your hypocrite mind we can’t call Obammy a clown? hahaha yeah right. It is time for the silent majority to become very vocal and put you sheep back in the fields. The grass needs grazing, why are you just sitting around?

John, why is it okay for you to say that G.W Bush can’t put together two sentences or that it is okay to call Romney Tweedledum but you delicate senses are offended if I call Obammy a clown???? Can you just do the right thing and admit you’re a hypocrite? Come on now you can do it buttercup. The first step is admitting you have the problem in the first place.

Government run health care? No thank you. Please name one government run program that is efficient, either in time (speed of process) or cost? None. I’ll stick with my private insurance and you can keep the change.

i voted for this guy in 2008 but won`t do it again…mccain/palin scared the hell out of me they seemed way to radical. but now we have a republican/business man that i think will do a pretty good job with the economy and not start any new wars . odumbo is clueless and relies on his “advisors” waaaaay too much . i think he has a
snowballs` chance in a thermo-nuclear blast of getting re-elected .
