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.

I won’t do it again. Romney/Ryan have my vote. Romney has executive experience in government and the private sector and has been generous with his time – including forfeiting his salary as Governor of Massachusetts. Ryan has extensive legislative experience I’d argue is the most well informed person on Capitol Hill. Watching him discuss economic issues is like listening to an economics professor. This is the best qualified ticket that I’ve ever seen. It’s a shame these two didn’t run and win in 2008 instead of the media mirage we elected.

I agree the President doesn’t directly create jobs, but they do create policy which allows for job creation… Mitt Romney has been very vocal about his ability to create jobs… I just wished he could have put those abilities into practice when he was Gov of Mass. Since he was 47th in job creation… I would say he knows just as much about Job creation as Snoop Dogg knows about Tea Parties…

Why should he keep his comments to himself? Are you the self appointed moderator? Don’t you have some grazing to do? Just face facts buttercup, it is all over. Americans are not willing to except failure any longer. The clown will be back in Chicago real soon.

Why does everyone think “creating jobs” is the job of the President?? The President does not hire people, businesses do and the businesses, here in America, are sitting on TRILLIONS of dollars but afraid to spend any of it due to this President’s positions regarding businesses. Since this President does not believe that I built my own business and believes that I should share my wealth with others I am scared to do anything with my savings other than to save it for a rainy day (or in this case a rainy four more years of this President’s anti business policy). When Governor Romney is elected President, you will see businesses start to spend money, creating new jobs because there will be a President who understand how businesses are run and will do away with policies which stiffle business (job) growth.

I bet you, also, think that the President wakes up every morning and sets that day’s gasoline prices.
