President Barack Obama waves from Air Force One after arriving at McCarran International Airport Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012.

President Barack Obama will visit Las Vegas on Thursday as part of a swing through three battleground states, the Obama campaign said.

Obama also will visit Boulder, Colo., and Springfield, Ohio, for grassroots events before campaigning throughout Ohio on Friday.

The Obama campaign hasn't released details about the president's Las Vegas visit, which was announced Sunday.

  1. Strike while the iron is hot, red hot! Make your case Mr. President, make your case!

    Be direct, tell the people the truth, be the President and you will win and serve four more years, as our President.

    My numbers have you at winning by 6 to 8 points.

  2. Why!

    More Air Force One and C-17 cargo plane expense to taxpayers. More curtailment of our Grand Canyon air tour industry. More traffic tie ups. Why!

    He doesn't even like our town.

    "Don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas."

    Can he draw a crowd without Katy Perry?

    "The "Free Phone" stands set up to entice low income individuals to TAKE more free benefits looked a bit suspicious so close to the election." (Bob Realist)

    Hey Bobby boy, you sending out coded messages? False information! Trying say something about something, like people living on street, low income individuals,...race maybe? You throwing a rock and hiding your hand...aye, Bobby boy! So you "actually" talked with "these downtrodden" individuals. Aye Bobby Boy! Actually...Your funny!

    Chew on this before you start slinging more muck from the junk you just posted.

    The free phone program originated back in 1984 during the Ronald Reagan administration; it was expanded 1996 during the administration of Bill Clinton; and the fist cellular service was launched in 2008, during the administration of George W. Bush. All of these milestones were passed prior to the advent of the Obama administration. The program is not directly subsidized by taxpayer monies.

    "He doesn't even like our town." (Steve Miller)

    Really! Mr. Miller, did your really believe what you just posted? The Youtube thing and all. You trying to scare people or tell people the truth???

    The truth is, the President spoke the truth about being responsible during a very difficult time. Did his words affect business in Las Vegas...Yes it did. I felt the pain as did everyone else in Las Vegas who relies on tourism.

    Mr. Miller, tell the truth, stop sending out these coded messages trying to scare people into believing distorted and misleading information. You have a responsible to say what is true if you know the truth. If you don't know the truth,...keep you mouth close and your ears opened, and ask somebody who knows the truth, or seekout the truth yourself.

  5. @Bob_Realist,

    If that is how you see it, and how you really feel, why don't you make a difference and past on what you know to the people who can follow-up and stop the abuse you say you know about?

    Your right, you did not send out a coded message. It can be read by others for what it is. It was an attempt to send out a coded message. You can see it a mile away my friend.

  6. @Heretic,

    I know you like me to respond to your crazy talk. Your funny.

    You know, I beat you last time,..again.

    Here's your finger nails on the chalk board moment:
    President Obama wins re-election by 6 to 8 points.

  7. I would think he would be making his way back to the east coast to deal with the aftermath of Sandy.

  8. More traffic delays and disruption, all just to chase six electoral votes? Very interesting...

  9. Good Evening to all You Tea Party Republicans who seem to have issues With ANYTHING President Obama Does, FOX News IS NOT, Has Not Been AND Will Never Be Factually Acurate. President Obama said Don't Blow Your Kids College Money On Vegas. That makes Sense Everywhere but in a Town Has has the Lowest Educated Population of any Major City in The U.S. (Las Vegas). I know Tea Party Haters find it very Difficult spelling GOOGLE and doing ANY Fact Checking Themselves - Because That would take One Minute of Work instead of Collecting their Government Retirement Checks.

  10. What an absolute waste of taxpayer money. If you don't know who you're voting for by now don't bother.
    It might be better to act like a president and see what happens when Sandy hits the east coast. Go there and do your job...

  11. Everyone needs to chill, you act like Obama is the first president to campaign on tax payer money.... Also you all complain about traffic, how many times have you been around him to get stuck in traffic? My guess is few maybes less than one can count on one hand...

  12. Gallup Shock: Romney Up 7 with Early Voters!
