Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Stops in Lakewood

President Barack Obama's former Chief of Staff stops at Obama field office on Detroit Avenue; said that Ohio plays a critical role in the outcome of the Nov. 6 election

Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago and the President’s former chief of staff, made a stop at the Obama campaign office in Lakewood on Saturday afternoon.

Although his visit was brief, he got the packed crowd of dozens fired up.

He talked about the importance of Ohio in the Nov. 6 election, and motivated volunteers to make the final push.

He also shared some of the differences between the President and his challenger, Mitt Romney — most notably the auto industry bailout that the President supported.

“Alright guys,” he said, after signing the volunteer wall at the Obama campaign office on Detroit Avenue. “Let’s go get ‘em.”

I voted for Mitt Romney because I feel like President Obama has been a too little too late on SO many things and the ambassador that was murdered and no troops were deployed to assist is not easily forgotten.......

Assuming you're not one of the billionaires trying to buy this election, let's hope Mitt doesn't get the chance to dash your dreams after you've succumbed to his lies.

Lies? That's so sad that you know so little of what has happened the last 4 years. You know who watches white house news briefings with Jay Carney, follows the President's movements, watches congressional hearings and really pays attention to the facts of where the stimulus money has gone. Those are the people who know that the president has avoided any type of press conferences because he is pressed to tell the truth and that is not advantageous to him.as he has had the least successful presidency in American history. Rahm Emanual has a murder rate out of control, teachers out of control and so far a been a failure in Chicago. Don't vote based on who you would like to party with. Vote on who can bring the country back to life and with pride. Obama will be impeached for real time watching those men being killed in Benghazzi and 3x denying them the help that was 3 hours away. He was in the situation room at 4pm watching them suffer yet lied about it in from of their coffins. He's impeached, Biden is President. Think about that. I am a 22 yrs working mom receiving no child support. Notice it is only out of touch Hollywood zillionaires that support Obama. People who need good jobs and lower gas and food prices like me vote Romney. Notice also everyone arrested for voter fraud has been on Obama's team. Educate yourself before you vote.

I did educate myself, and I care about my wife, my children, my grandchildren, my friends, and everyone else's, so I'm voting for the one who will work to make America a better place for all of us. Apparently you don't intend to if what you believe is what you wrote. Maybe you haven't figured it out, but in this election we've seen the most expensive election the world has ever seen, because corporations and the millionaires and billionaires who own them will spare no expense to buy all the votes they can. So have you gladly been bought, or have you just not yet realized it? I'm guessing the latter. How can you decide to vote for a cypher who changes his beliefs on a daily basis? A billion dollars buys a lot of Republican lies. And the worst part of it is that they don't care who knows what they're up to as long as they can hide the identities of those eroding our democracy with their flood of dirty money. BTW, how do you presume to know what happens in the offices of the White House? Were you there, or did a little FOX tell you? It sure sounds like it.

Robert he had 4 years to do something for our country and all of his promises such as bringing unemployment down to under 6% and closing Gitmo and not only bringing home and closing up shop in Afghanistan but now he has more death on his watch than Bush! I have CSPAN unlike your msnbc. I watch congressional hearings and used to watch presidential press conferences instead of the farces that Jay Carney presents. Obama has the the worst record for press conferences for a man who promised us TRANSPARENCY and then does everything behind closed doors and is still refusing questions on anything especially his real time viewing of the events of Benghazi for which we can now view the video and see the pleading emails from the now dead that he is still "investigating" until after the election. The whistle blowers, tired of him throwing them under the bus, have provided plenty with which incriminate him. They would rather lose their jobs than be called murderers as they took his order to not increase security in Benghazi as all of Chris' friends and his emails attest and then he tells the men in the Annex to leave Chris for dead and refused to send back up or fire the 2 drones flying overhead. We have seen the video of Ty's laser showing the mortars that 7 hours later killed them. 7 hours! Plenty of time to have save them all. As a man who made a dumb youtube video is in jail for his life as we were all lied to. That is clear. You want that to run the country. How sad.
