Romney created a 100 day plan of attack in Cincinnati yesterday outlining reconstruction surgery for America’s economy and massive unemployment. Speaking in front of yet another college crowd, Obama reconstructed his 2008 campaign, promising what had already been promised, blaming who and what had already been blamed, appealing to the same middle class, and asking everyone to ignore that one term proposition.
Speaking for almost an hour he said: “Financial institutions, corporations saw their profits soar. But prosperity never trickled down to the middle class. … This election presents a choice between two fundamentally different visions of how to create strong, sustained growth… and most of all, how to generate good middle-class jobs, so people can have confidence that if they work hard, they can get ahead.”
Community college students, their parents are primarily middle class, and they will be starting at the bottom, here’s someone looking out for their best interests. What the hell do they know at this point in life? Their president wants the best for the middle class guy.
Obama is not raking it in at the same level as Romney and many of the old reliable sources are now donating to Mitt. The irony here last night was the quick Air One jump over to New York.

AP: “President Barack Obama soaked in the support — and the campaign cash — of Manhattan’s elite entertainers Thursday as his re-election team sought to fill its fundraising coffers. The president and first lady Michelle Obama made a rare joint fundraising appearance when they visited the home of actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. The intimate dinner banked about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each.”
A few hours earlier Obama was attacking Romney in Ohio for not being able to relate to the middle class voters.
