    This time, instead of Ben Harper, the featured act is Roots.

    This is his standard technique for bringing together a crowd: a free concert to encourage "the youth" to participate. It's how he ran his 2008 campaign. We'll see if it dupes the kids in 20112.

    President Barack Obama headlines a rally in Philadelphia on Sunday, hoping to re-ignite the type of Democratic enthusiasm that carried him to victory two years ago.

    Vice President Joe Biden will join Obama in the Germantown community, where the hip-hop band the Roots will warm up the crowd.

    It's the second of four large rallies designed to recapture some of the big-stage excitement that Obama created in 2008 with stirring speeches to thousands of young and first-time voters. The president spoke to more than 17,000 people last week in Madison, Wis., where many more thousands watched on screens in an overflow area.

    Democrats are desperate to close the "enthusiasm gap" that may lead to huge Republican victories on Nov. 2. Obama is telling liberal-leaning voters that there's no excuse for them to stay home on Election Day.

    But the president sometimes sounds wistful when noting the differences between this year and 2008.

    Dems need to run on their record.

    2,000 page bills taking over Health care and banking that no one bothers to read

    Budget deficit so huge you have to use scientific notation 1.3*10^12

    and 9.5% unemployment as far as the eye can see.

    Yes, there is a problem with this (for the Dems). There's no there there. The only message is one of mindless entertainment combined with meaningless bromides.

    But if that's what inspires the hard left, keep it up. It just drives away moderates and independents towards the conservative causes.

    The boyking is an Embarrassment to our country.

    I guess you can't take the Community Agitator out one once it's set in.
