Organizing: Obama Pride: LGBT Americans for Obama is launching with trainings, planning sessions, phone banks and house parties in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Nevada, Michigan and more. Grassroots LGBT volunteers are going door to door, neighborhood by neighborhood and talking to their friends, family and co-workers.

Romney Economics: In both the public and the private sector, Romney favored short-term profits that helped only those at the top over long-term investments that helped everyone. He did and would do the same to our children’s education, putting budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthiest ahead of good schools and affordable higher education.

Kentucky: President Obama won more total votes in Kentucky than Romney, who one-third of Kentucky Republicans voted against. We saw the same thing earlier this month in North Carolina, which Republicans claim leans in their favor and where the President won more votes than Romney.

Romney Economics: In both the public and private sectors, Romney favored short-term profits that helped only those at the top over long-term investments that helped everyone. He wants to bring those values to the Oval Office and do the same for our energy future by letting his Big Oil donors shape his energy policies behind closed doors instead of implementing policies that help families save at the pump.

Yesterday the campaign released a new video that will be played live at the President’s first campaign rallies this Saturday in Ohio and Virginia. The video outlines the challenges America faced as President Obama took office, and the progress we’ve made toward a strong middle class and an economy built to last – where hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everyone does their fair share and plays by the same rules.

One year ago today, President Obama authorized the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. A commander-in-chief only gets one chance to get it right, and the President has never tried to avoid the tough calls. While President Obama boldly decided in an uncertain window of opportunity to authorize the operation that finally got bin Laden, in 2007 Mitt Romney said he opposed taking unilateral action inside Pakistan to eliminate terrorists from the battlefield and that it wouldn’t be “worth moving heaven and earth” to do so.

The Obama campaign released a new response ad today that highlights Mitt Romney’s belief that a strong economy is built on outsourcing, loopholes and risky financial deals. While President Obama has helped create jobs here in America and encouraged companies to bring jobs back home, Mitt Romney shipped jobs overseas both in the private sector and as governor of Massachusetts.

Public-Sector Jobs: As we’ve created nearly 4.3 million private-sector jobs over the last 27 months, we’ve lost 450,000 state and local government jobs – many of them teachers and first responders. In the last 18 months, we’ve added private-sector jobs every month but lost public-sector jobs in 16 of them. According to leading economists, public-sector job losses are dragging down the economy.

As millions of our servicemen and women return home from war, now more than ever we must continue fulfilling our duty to them and their families for their service. We owe all our veterans and their families the care they were promised and the benefits they earned.

President Obama is committed to helping veterans find work when they return home, get the health care and benefits they’ve earned, and be able to get a college education:

  • Latinos will be a deciding factor in this election – and the outcome will have a long-lasting impact on the Hispanic community for years to come. That’s why we’re launching Latinos for Obama, another step in the ongoing conversation about the issues that matter to Latino voters.
