President Barack Obama's campaign said she will emphasize get-out-the-vote efforts in a rally Tuesday afternoon at Cincinnati's downtown convention center.

She campaigned for her husband in Dayton in late July, and was in Cincinnati in February.

Obama's campaign said earlier he will return to Ohio next Thursday for an evening rally in Columbus, followed by a Friday rally in Cleveland.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will be in Ohio this Saturday for a U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance rally in Columbus. The hunting enthusiast campaigned earlier this week in Lima, Cincinnati and the Dayton area.

Lessee Jackel: Pride in America. We just observed the 60th anniversary of James Meredith enrolling in an all-white college in the midst of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation which made all African-Americans equal. We also just marked anniversaries of the church-bombing that killed five children and took 60 years for the white bomber to go to jail. Of course, we can go back to Andy Jackson and the 'Trail of Tears' when he broke all the treaties with the First Americans and sent them west of the Mississippi. Which brings us to modern America where we have candidates for president who are African-American and Mexican-American.

Why beat up on her? She did not run for anything nor was she elected to anything. She is simply supporting her husband which is what she is suppose to do. I think it's great that she also supports the troops which is far more that can be said for the cons who only talk a good game after they are the reason there are so many in need. All women should be proud of her.

@ deertracker:

She's out campaigning and fair game.

And when Mr. Obama became a U.S. Senator, the U of C Hospitals helped her in "supporting her husband" with a raise to a $300K annual salary.

Funny, after she left they didn't refill the position.

She has her nose in our school system,and she is as qualified to tell my children what to eat as Bloomberg has to tell New Yorkers What to drink.

If your kids are fat, then somebody needs to tell you what your children should be eating.

JACKEL

You are right,but not the Government.You are evidently a Socialist who wants the Government to run your life.

From Barbra Bush - "He has never said a mean word about anyone." "He treats my husband like his father." "He is a goodfellow." (she was talking about Bill Clinton) Interesting.

47% live in Ohio and need the handouts, Who needs to work when the government makes it to easy to stay home and not struggle with bills.

More like an olive --- cherry turned green with envy. Obviously you don't know anything about stretching less than $300 a week salary to pay rent/mortgage and utilities, feed a family of four, and maintain a worn-out vehicle (to get to your part-time job[s]}. Remember Mitt Romney is part of the 47% who pay no earned income tax... but he also pays no payroll taxes, SS, Medicare (but I'll bet he accepted Part A) or FICA.

Moochelle has been proud to be an American, but only since her husband was elected president.

When Jesus said "the poor will be with you always", he must have known Obama would make absolutely certain of it.

The Big Dog's back

neverthinks, are you proud to have President Barack Obama as your AMERICAN President?

thinkagain

little yapper - I am proud that as an American I have lived long enough to see a black man as President. Am I proud as an American to say BO is my President? Nope.

So why wasn’t Moochelle proud to be an American during Clinton’s Presidency? Don’t tell me she’s a rascist???

the office cat

Okay... ya can't win one with current talking points so ya gotta go back and take SOMETHING ELSE outa context to try to win a point. And still you are so pathetic in your arguments.

But... are you PROUD OF AMERICA?

Don't misquote/misrepresent The Master. If you wanna quote Jesus, at least quote in context. He said those words when Judas said the money used for oil to annoint his feet could have fed a hundred poor people. His message was that he would be leaving them soon to take care of the poor who ALWAYS will be with us regardless of politics, leaders, rulers - or jackasps. Since 'ignorance is bliss', you must be ecstatic.

eriemom

She is not running for office. Her message is, vote.

I cannot figure out why some of you honestly don't see some of your comments as racist. Here's the thing. In America we protect your right to be a racist. Just don't expect to be able to hide behind rage at being called out.

The First Lady a Mooch? How many of the 47% that get sited by many of you as lazy, are collecting Social Security, on Medicaid, and Vets?

Perkins2060

Race card race card race card. It is getting old.

eriemom

I agree. I shouldn't have to state an obvious fact in 2012. Not everyone looks like you do.

Perkins2060

I think all non whites who do not like Mitt Romney are racist. See how dumb you sound?
