Posted on 10/30/2010 12:43:03 PM PDT by kristinn
Christine O'Donnell sent out an e-mail this afternoon saying Barack Obama will be returning to Delaware on Monday in a "desperate" bid to stave off the surging O'Donnell campaign.
We just got word that Barack Obama is coming back to Delaware on Monday. Hes seen the polls and our grassroots fundraising. He is desperate to win this seat! Our campaign is on a roll and we are so close to winning. The momentum is gathering at exactly the right time.
A recent poll showed O'Donnell narrowing opponent Chris Coons' lead to almost single digits from a high of 21%. O'Donnell surged from behind to victory in her primary campaign against Rep. Mike Castle.
There are fears among Democrats that the smear job against O'Donnell by Gawker this past week will turn women voters, who have been favoring Coons, to O'Donnell in a backlash against the abuse of women in the political process seen in recent campaigns.
No details of Obama's Delaware appearance have been announced.
However it contradicts a Los Angeles Times report published last night that said Obama was not making any campaign appearances Monday because it would interfere with Democrat get out the vote efforts.
Veteran Democratic organizers say that large presidential rallies come at a price. Time spent ensuring that Obama has a sizeable audience cuts into canvassing and phone banks the essential work of juicing election day turnout. The White House said it is sensitive to this, noting that Obama won't attend any rallies on Monday, the day before the election, so as not to interfere with efforts to get Democrats to the polls.
Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity both reported yesterday that Obama was headed back to Delaware, but the e-mail by the O'Donnell campaign is the first confirmation from either campaign.

aaagh, Obozo speaking in CT right now, just told his stoopid little story about trying to get the car out of a ditch while the Republicans are sipping on a slurpee
that’s what Delaware has to look forward to on Monday
tell Obozo where he can shove his endorsement of Chris Coons, Harry Reid’s precious pet
I will tell you why Obama is returning. The polls are all using 2006 turnout. 18% of the voting population is African American. Which means for Odonnell to win she needs a very very low African American turnout. If the turnout is near normal 2006 she is in trouble. Just the honest truth.
I am beginning to believe that this DE race is the biggest fraud being sold to the voters. I do not believe that Coons is ahead in these polls. The WH would not be in panic mode if COD was the loser they keep telling us she is.
it’s got to be close on the internals — NO WAY would the ‘Rats put Obozo there the day before the election unless they are very very nervous about that seat
(or unless Obozo is now so toxic that they don’t put him out anywhere else!!)
Ahh... because he knows darn well that those polls are just part of the MSM effort to campaign for left-wing Democrats, and aren't worth a bucket of warm spit? For $800, Alex?
Here we see the remnants of the Rat gameplan for 2010: send Obomba to Delaware to take credit for the expected win. Then the DNC Media pitches in on Election night by presenting it as the only important race, with lots of thoughtful musing about how the Tea Party may have “reached its limits” even as 70 Congressional and 10 Senate seats flip to the GOP.
Whatever turnout they are using, she must be close for odumbo to bring his broken record there
Wouldn’t having Barry in town also require a lot of traffic tie-ups and security?
Between that and the forecast, it’ll definitely be “broken-glass” time for our side.
Rephrasing that: Wouldnt having Barry in town also require a lot of security and cause traffic tie-ups?
Trying to attract as many fraudulent voters as possible with the race card.
Your scenario makes sense. Obama goes to on election eve and then claims his gravitas is what saved Chris Coons from certain defeat at the hands of those “right wing extremist tea-baggers”.
It’s really all they have left. And even that might not work.
He’s STILL using the car in the ditch and the sippin’ on a slurpee thing?
That has been made fun of so much.
Don’t go there, dude.
