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

I had the pleasure of attending.



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.


Obama-Biden Pictures...1-100 from Dayton


YIPPEE! I got 2 extra Tickets for the Obama-Biden Rally on Tuesday.

I had to stand in line from 11am to 2:30 pm....Only ONE ticket per person.....This is important information which was not identified with the Rally Announcement. ( see information with link below)

I was standing alone in line this chilly fall day; frustrated that my coworkers would not be able to attend the Rally as they could not get off work today to stand in line; I'm off today, so logically I had volunteered to pick up the tickets .....made sense to us at the time. Totally unaware of the ticket rules....nothing identifed by the Obama Campaign announcement.

Then, about 1 pm, a old acquaintance accompanied by his friend walked by..we started to chat. He then shares he was not able to attend the Rally....but offered to stand in line to get a ticket for my coworker. His friend offered to do the same.....What a fine friend...a great gift. Now I can attend the Rally with my friends.


Ticket information:

To pick up a ticket, visit one of the following Obama for America locations beginning Saturday at 2 p.m.

* Dayton Office, 411 East 5th Street.

* Trotwood Office, 4815 Salem Avenue.

* Vandalia Office, 7250 Poe Avenue.
