Etheridge, Vilsack make final push for Obama

READ MORE:
 

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and former North Carolina Rep. Bob Etheridge teamed up to stump for President Obama's reelection. The two made a stop this afternoon at Obama campaign headquarters in Wilmington.

Rep. Etheridge says he expects the race between the president and Republican Mitt Romney to be a close race in our battleground state.

"It was close last time. It amounted to only five votes per precinct, and what I would say to folks is go vote. It's important," Etheridge said.

Etheridge and Vilsack made several stops throughout the state today in support of the president.

For whom the bell tolls

We all have out own political views however, what sickens me most is the "I'm voring for Obama because he's black" mentality.
Vote for someone because you beleive he or she will do the best job.
Sadly enough, neither canidate in my opinion will get America back on her feet, but at the same time as "that middle class family" I can't personally take four more years of a financial meltdown, nor can I aford higher education for my three remaining children under Obama's rule.
If only Reagean were still alive and elgiable...
Or if only Romney was a good a B.S.'erand public speaker as Obama.
This race is not about race, its not about middle, lower, upper class... Its about sustainability, and the next financial decade years of our lives.
Don't vote on color, don't vote on party affiliation.. Vote for who you think in your heart, will lead us to financial recovery.. If you do that, you've personally made the right choice regardless of who you vote for. But "I'm keeping a black man in office", is NOT a valid reason and netier is "we need a white man in office".. That's just ignorant.

Well Said

your comments are so true, unfortunately there is alot of ignorant and where is my check voters out there who cancel out those who work for a living. While i agree that the rich should pay a little more i know my families situation is worse now than it was 4 years ago so we are voting for Romney. We had Hope, but got the Change we did not need. Bless all of you and please for the countries sake vote for someone who has turned around bad things in the past.
