HolyGod, It's called strategy. "Bitching" strategy at that!

"This should put to bed the notion that the presidents aren't campaigning in most states."

Not if you were paying attention. The country gets colored in because it shows the flyover.

In the last 5 months Romney has not visited:

Alaska
Connecticut
Delaware
Hawaii
Kansas
Kentucky
Maine
Maryland
Nebraska
North Dakota
Oklahoma
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Tennessee
Vermont
Washington
West Virginia

That is 17 states that have gotten no attention from a man who wants to be president of all 50, while he visited Ohio 36 times.

In the last 5 months Obama has not visited:

Alabama
Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
Delaware
Hawaii
Idaho
Indiana
Kansas
Kentucky
Maine
Michigan
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nebraska
New Jersey
New Mexico
North Dakota
Oklahoma
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota
Tennessee
Utah
Vermont
West Virginia
Wyoming

That is 28 states that have gotten no attention from a man who wants to be president of all 50, while he visited Ohio 22 times.

How does this seem right to you? The electoral college is obsolete in every way. Give me one thing that it does better than determining the election by national popular vote alone?

I bet you were b.itching about Bush using AF1 to campaign in 2004 right? RIGHT? Wouldn't want to appear like a raging hypocrite or anything.

Why is Romney wasting so much time in Utah a state he has locked. Oh.... Getting his Mormon marching orders. Scary.

"runs a country"

You used that phrase.

I do not think it means what you think it means.

"pay the entire cost of operations of AF1 while on campaign flights"

DING DING DING!

Or he can use normal chartered aircraft when out on the trail like his opponent.

@auburnjunky: So, what would you have the incumbent candidate's campaign do? The only other options are for the incumbent campaign to either pay the entire cost of operations of AF1 while on campaign flights - which is prohibitively expensive, given a nearly $200k/hour pricetag and thus would significantly hinder a sitting president's eligibility for the office - or to have the sitting POTUS take a commercial or charter jet other than AF1 - which would increase security risks considerably.

The 2007 updated rules for campaign reibursement may not go far enough, but it's the current law and it's what Obama is following.

Air Force one pays for its fuel with tax dollars.

Don't ever forget that.
