Stop wasting our tax dollars with trips to Ohio, Mr. President. It's a total waste of our money.
Obama is obsessed with the Buckeye state because he knows he needs a Democratic governor on hand to help him if the presidential election is close in 2012. Remember, Ohio has gone with the winner in every election.

(The Hill)- 'President Obama’s frequent trips this fall to Ohio on behalf of Democratic candidates may not be making a difference, a new poll suggested Tuesday.
A Quinnipiac University survey of voters in the Buckeye State found that most said Obama’s stumping on behalf of incumbent Gov. Ted Strickland has had no effect on how they plan to vote.
Fifty-eight percent of likely voters in Ohio said that Obama’s campaigning made no difference on how they planned to vote, while 32 percent said the president’s efforts made them less likely to support Strickland. Only nine percent said Obama’s campaigning made them more likely to support Strickland for re-election.
The president, along with Vice President Biden and other top administration officials, have made frequent trips to Ohio this fall to campaign on behalf of Strickland, Senate candidate Lee Fisher, and a slew of House Democrats who are facing very difficult GOP challenges this fall. The state, which often serves as a bellwether for the nation during presidential cycles, has arguably received more attention from the Obama administration than any other state in the 2010 campaign.
Obama was most recently in the state on Sunday with First Lady Michelle Obama for a “Moving America Forward” rally at Ohio State University.
But the president’s own approval ratings in the state have trended negatively since winning the state in the 2008 election, 52-47 percent.
Fifty-six percent of likely voters in Ohio told the Qunnipiac poll that they disapprove of the way Obama’s handling his job, while 40 percent approve.'"
