Apparently not to campus, though.

If not there, where? West Wash? Cap Square? Breese Stevens Field? Alliant Center?

I got a phone call encouraging me to come to the rally in Madison.

From the article jjoyce linked, I found this a bit disturbing:

He was in Green Bay on Thursday and he planned to be in Milwaukee for a rally with pop singer Katy Perry on Saturday.


Katy Perry? I might have to re-evaluate who I'm voting for (except I can't, since I already voted...)

My guess is that he won't venture far, if at all, from the airport.

What's the Intrade that Meade will get sucked into a jet turbine in Air Force One as he runs alongside it on the runway screaming "confirmed confirmed confirmed"?

See, this is why Early voting is bad. Imagine your regret if he show's up with Justin Bieber next?

A reminder, that I'll make even at the risk of being labelled an Obama apologist - we could do WORSE domestically. Take, for instance, the misleading GOP accusations that seem to describe Obama's administration as having exclusively and grossly increased the national debt. In fact, Republican Ronald Reagan was the first US president to push that debt over one trillion dollars. Democrat Bill Clinton was the last president to balance the budget and leave this country with a budget surplus, which the Republican Bush regime promptly squandered on two wars funded, so to speak, on a credit card. There was also Bush's exorbitant boon to the pharmaceutical industry known as Medicare Part D. Ultimately, George W. Bush racked up more red ink - at least five trillion dollars worth - than all his predecessors COMBINED. Bush and Cheney also managed to destroy the American economy in the process, as anyone who remembers the stock market crash of September 2008 is forced to concede. True, Obama hasn't done everything right by any estimation, but at least his administration helped save the US automotive sector. And don't forget, the much-criticized TARP program was begun by Bush/Cheney. In all fairness, Obama sure as hell was handed one unenviable financial situation by the previous Neocon regime. We could do worse, and under Romney/Ryan, we surely would. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/ne ... h-20121018
"Romney's tax-cut math just doesn't add up. The last time America took a faith-based plunge on this kind of tax policy, Bush turned a $5 trillion projected surplus into $5 trillion in new debt."

I won't call you an apologist, mano.

I will call you a boring thread jacker. Make your endorsement elsewhere. this conversation is about Monday's visit.

Will she do that song about having a ménage à trois? Maybe not.

Unless Meatloaf flip-flops, I'm pretty sure Obama's got my vote wrapped up.

Hell, they could find him in a broom closet with Justin Bieber, it still ain't gonna look this bad.


And no, I won't leave it alone. Can't. Can't leave it alone.

From The AVClub:
Perry [will be] lending her considerable talents to the appearance. She is also expected to sing.

ZING!

Nah, just a GOTV effort in an area where he has strong support.

Don't you think that Obama would have one of the most liberal cities in the Western Hemisphere wrapped up by now?
