Bill Clinton is making his way back to Southwest Florida this week, but this time he’ll be in town rallying support for President Barack Obama.

The former president is scheduled to hold a rally Friday at Harborside Event Center, 1375 Monroe Street, Fort Myers. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. The event is open to the public, and tickets are not required.

Clinton will crisscross the state today as part of a last-minute, whirlwind campaign swing. He’s also scheduled to appear in Palm Beach, Palm Bay, St. Petersburg and Tallahassee.

But the campaigning doesn’t stop there. Clinton on Saturday will travel to Virginia where he’ll campaign alone for most of the day before joining Obama and singer Dave Matthews for an event in Bristow, Va., on Saturday evening.

This is the second time this week Clinton — often considered Obama’s most power surrogate — has visited the state.

Clinton stopped in Orlando — where he was scheduled to appear with Obama, who left early to monitor super storm Sandy from the White House — on Monday. There Clinton highlighted the president’s plans for the economy, education and energy.

“This is not about the candidates, this is about you and your future,” Clinton told a crowd of more than 7,000 people who attended Monday’s rally at the University of Central Florida.

“It’s about two very different approaches, and which one is more likely to build a 21st century version of the American dream.”

This isn’t Clinton’s first appearance in Southwest Florida. The 42nd president was in Naples in March 2011 as part of the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts’ speakers series.

Clinton isn’t the only big name politico to campaign in Southwest Florida this election season. Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was in Fort Myers in October, while Vice President Joe Biden held a rally there in September.

Obama was scheduled to hold a campaign event at Harborside in July, but it was cut short after a gunman entered a Colorado movie theater and opened fire, killing 12 and injuring 59 others.

Ask B.J. Clinton about the uptick once again in the job unemployment to 7.9% where our GRADE F- president promised 5.4%. He will tell you the B.O is doing the best job he can......Now who is full of BS?

Maybe we should ask his wife, Hillary, who was really responsible for the loss of 4 Patriots at Benghazi before the election?

Interesting that this information will NOT be available to the American public until AFTER THE ELECTION. How convenient!

I think Obama should be impeached based upon his lies and incompetence.

Bill, who I voted for twice WHILE on active duty has become nuttier than Klauschen. ODUMDUM is an incompetent dirtbag, and Bill, Klaus, and other obamabots need some serious reprogramming.

I was just watching television about the hurricane Sandy covering New York's Staten Island.

These people are in desperate shape and we had the back patting by the flunky president and mayor congratulating each other on how good a job they are doing. What a load of hog droppings!

Four hour gas lines if one is lucky enough to get gas, electricity still not on and may not be on until November 11th. Obama is not doing his job. Boy is this going to be an eye opener for N.Y. Democrats.

Now Obumma is out campaigning and should be doing the job he is being paid to which is looking out for our citizens not shaking hands and kissing babies.

N.Y. is going to have a marathon and the police will be there instead of the areas where houses are being looted by nobody else but Obumma voters who will be too busy looting than voting.

What a disgusting situation. The people of the area are fed up with this do nothing administation and so should the rest of the country.

NY, like IL, CA, NJ, PA, CT, HI, & MA, where the politics are now controlled by powerful government unions have gradually turned into essentially one-party states, little better than many Latin American countries for taxpayers who live there. ( If you live on welfare or some sleepy government job, these are great states to live in!)

So it makes little difference whether the mayor or the newspaper editorial boards bother to endorse the Barrack Epiphanes or not, for the election outcome.

Hey, hey, hey. The annointed one DID make a photo stop before hopping back on AF One and going to three or four other states to campaign. Not much different from the last four years. There is one thing ODUMDUM does care about ... himself.

Klauschen under the weather? Doesn't want to come out and play?

Do you remember when Bill Clinton went on TV and lied to every American when he said: "I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time; never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people."

Do you remember Bill Clinton cheating, betraying and lying to the two people he cared about most in his life. His wife and daughter.

Do you remember Clinton attempting to steal the credit for a good economy that was actually the result of a GOP congress and internet dot com business explosion?

Bill Clinton has more than proven himself to untrustworthy and deceptive.

Hey Klaus,

Why are you not up in Staten Island showing your support for those Obama supporters who are looting the homes of those terribly hurt by the hurricane?
I guess that is a faster way to get money from those who worked for it than waiting for a welfare check.

Once again, one of your divert and regurgitate responses.

Try something new KLAUS,KLABS,HERZILLI.

I hear Michelle needs someone to carry her laundry from the White House in January. Just think you might find something useful to do with your time.

Hey,

I understand from your earlier posts that you do some Ghost writing. If that is so, Michelle needs someone to write an autobiography for her called ""PORK AND GREENS, AND HOW I RAN OUT OF LIPSTICK".

Glory, glory hallelujah

That will be one of my best days in life, to send this used car dealer home. Where ever that is for him. Fortunate for him, he is trained in 2008 how the procedure is. By BY!

What a great and happy day I have
next Tuesday."

MarcoBiker,

Now RayPray and Klaus are repeating each other's rants. I guess Klaus was too drunk to see which "log on" button he pushed he pushed again.

He also attempts to argue with himself at times.

I wonder if Sue knows he is on the computer again?

Yes Klaus, in order to respond to you that is all we need to type.

After all, our few words invokes paragraph upon paragraph of your rampant, regurgitational tirades which accomplishes our goal.

Thank you for making this possible.

What is it with Obama and Biden?

First we had Biden say that the Republicans want the black community "back in chains".

Earlier today or yesterday we had Obama actually, at a rally, say vote for him if you want "Revenge".

This is not a coincidence and surely shows the race card being used to its fullest.

If you don't see this than there is plenty of sand to bury your head in on Marco's beach.

Thought James Bond dispatched him in the last movie.

Klaus,

Did I hear an answer to what happened in Benghazi or the failed Hurricane Photo Op in Jersey so your dumb, dump president could continue his campaign tours. No, just additional name calling and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

In 12 hours or so it will be GAME ENDED for your puppet, imitation, president and his moron V.P.

We should never forget what "Back in Chains" and "Revenge" means in code.

Thank you Biden and Obama for showing your true inner selves.

Klaus/Klabs

Just like your flunky leader, the more you say the less it makes sense.

Now for an English lesson.

Do you really mean that the potus loves sex, drinking beer and loves to eat?

How do you know that he is not a eunuch? He has been married too long to Michelle to still have any.

What is send "this use cat dealer home" Do you mean used car dealer?

BY, BY.... should be spelled BYE, BYE.

Who writes your blogs? Surely not the ghost writer you told me you were. Was that a lie?

One could hire a 5th grader from the middle school to do a much better job!

Day, don't pick on Klaws ... he's doing the best he can. Right now we should be supportive and provide him with the number for the suicide hotline. Naaaaah, let him look it up himself.
