    President Barack Obama told supporters that after four years, the auto industry was "back on top" and that the United States was less dependent on foreign oil. "So, you've got ideas we've tried that didn't work, and ideas that we've tried that did work. So, you'd think it would be a very clear choice, but Gov. Romney is a very talented salesman," he said.

    Just two days before the Commander in Chief seat will be up for grabs, President Barack Obama rallied at a grassroots event in Hollywood.

    "Florida, in two days you've got a choice to make," he said. "It's not just a choice between two parties or candidates, it's a choice between two different visions of America."

    [MI] President Barack Obama Held Rally in Hollywood Sunday, Two Days Before Election Day
    Just two days before the Commander in Chief seat will be up for grabs, President Barack Obama rallied at a grassroots event in Hollywood. "Florida, in two days you've got a choice to make," he said. "It's not just a choice between two parties or candidates, it's a choice between two different visions of America."

    Obama told supporters that after four years, the auto industry was "back on top" and that the United States was less dependent on foreign oil.

    "So, you've got ideas we've tried that didn't work, and ideas that we've tried that did work. So, you'd think it would be a very clear choice, but Gov. Romney is a very talented salesman," he said.

    After touching on what he said were his successes, Obama told supporters there was "more work to do."

    "As long as there's a single American who wants a job, but can't find out, our work is not yet done," he said.

    The president's many rallies are aimed at boosting Democratic enthusiasm and motivating as many supporters as possible to cast their votes. Persuading undecided voters, now just a tiny sliver of the electorate in battleground states, has become a secondary priority.

    The President also touched on the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated parts of the Northeast last week.

    "We will be with them every step of the way until they have fully recovered from the hardships and the crisis, because that's how we do in the United States of America," he said.

    Obama spoke to the crowd of 23,000 people at the McArthur High School football field, preceded by Miami singer Pitbull, who told Obama supporters why he came to speak.

    "I am a first generation Cuban-American. I know what my family went through to try and be able to appreciate the opportunity that this country gives you," he said.

    Pitbull finished his short speech with a quote from one of his songs.

    "And like I told you guys in the song, next level, la casa blanca," which means the White House, in Spanish.

    Florida Democratic Party Filed Lawsuit Over Early Voting Days Before Presidential Election

    President Barack Obama has a problem with Florida's important Puerto Rican voters, and it has little to do with the immigration and deportation issues that dominate so much of the national debate involving Hispanic voters.

    Florida's two biggest Hispanic groups -- Puerto Ricans and Cuban Americans -- have legal statuses not enjoyed by immigrants from other Latin American countries. This makes illegal immigration a tangential issue for them.

    Their chief concerns center on Florida's struggling economy, leaders of both parties say. And Florida's high unemployment and foreclosure rates have hit Puerto Ricans hard.

    Saturday Was the Last Day to Vote Early In Florida

    That's a dilemma for Obama. He's counting on big Puerto Rican support to help offset Cuban-American precincts, mainly in Miami, where Republican Mitt Romney expects to do well. Some analysts say he may fall short.

    Also in South Florida, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani attended several voting events to encourage support for Republican hopeful Mitt Romney.

    "We're going to look forward to an America in which people are not on welfare and food stamps, but where people are working," Giuliana said. "And we are going to have a president who will not leave Americans behind."

    Like Obama, the former mayor also touched on the people affected by Hurricane Sandy. He told a group of Romney supporters that "the president abandoned them."

    "We do not have a Commander in Chief, we have a Campaigner in Chief, for four years" he said.

    Giuliana was joined by Sen. Norm Coleman, Rep. Martha Roby and Romney Senior Advisor Barbara Comstock, officials said.

    While the President also campaigned in New Hampshire Sunday, and was scheduled to make visits to Ohio and Colorado, Romney will make stops in Pennsylvania, Iowa, Ohio and Virgina.
