I said a year ago that Obama was going to be lucky to carry Illinois; nice to see him campaigning there.

He’s screwed.

Decatur, Illinois. Named for Stephen Decatur. THE hero of the Barbary Wars. The youngest captain in the history of USN (and thus the inspiration for James T. Kirk being the same in Star Fleet.) Obama will be there Friday. Freepers should stage their protests HERE. Signs should display the history of the town's namesake. Let others make the comparison.

Maybe he could pull a Do-Your-Freakin-Job tour.
The Mid East is in flames and Obama is playing in Vegas and yucking it up with Letterman.

And I should add that Stephen Decatur inspired Francis Scott Keyes to write this for a banquet in his honor, nine years before writing the Star Spangled Banner to the same tune.
When the Warrior Returns (1805)

WHEN the warrior returns, from the battle afar,
To the home and the country he nobly defended,
O! warm be the welcome to gladden his ear,
And loud be the joy that his perils are ended:
In the full tide of song let his fame roll along,
To the feast-flowing board let us gratefully throng,
Where, mixed with the olive, the laurel shall wave,
And form a bright wreath for the brows of the brave.

Columbians! a band of your brothers behold,
Who claim the reward of your hearts' warm emotion,
When your cause, when your honor, urged onward the bold,
In vain frowned the desert, in vain raged the ocean:
To a far distant shore, to the battle's wild roar,
They rushed, your fair fame and your rights to secure:
Then, mixed with the olive, the laurel shall wave,
And form a bright wreath for the brows of the brave.

In the conflict resistless, each toil they endured,
'Till their foes fled dismayed from the war's desolation:
And pale beamed the Crescent, its splendor obscured
By the light of the Star Spangled flag of our nation.
Where each radiant star gleamed a meteor of war,
And the turbaned heads bowed to its terrible glare,
Now, mixed with the olive, the laurel shall wave,
And form a bright wreath for the brows of the brave.

Our fathers, who stand on the summit of fame,
Shall exultingly hear of their sons the proud story:
How their young bosoms glow'd with the patriot flame,
How they fought, how they fell, in the blaze of their glory.
How triumphant they rode o'er the wondering flood,
And stained the blue waters with infidel blood;
How, mixed with the olive, the laurel did wave,
And formed a bright wreath for the brows of the brave.

Then welcome the warrior returned from afar
To the home and the country he nobly defended:
Let the thanks due to valor now gladden his ear,
And loud be the joy that his perils are ended.
In the full tide of song let his fame roll along,
To the feast-flowing board let us gratefully throng,
Where, mixed with the olive, the laurel shall wave,
And form a bright wreath for the brows of the bravo.

How things have changed in a couple hundred years. What would the founders of a town they named for Stephen Decatur think of this week and the President who built it?

This is an Americans for Prosperity bus tour, this is not a reelect Obama event.

Time zones, quick speeches, and a fast jet, or a doppelganger, poor, poor doppelganger.

He can’t if he actually has the buson the road the whole time. That bus spends as much time in the air as he does. They fly it from one site to another.

Wow. This is like Kerry having to campaign in Mass or Bush having to campaign in Texas. If the bus tour was “Hey, we’re going to Iowa and Wisconsin so we’ll truck on through Illinois,” that would be one thing, but this schedule means he’s getting on AF1, coming to Illinois, doing the stops and then getting on AF1 again.

If in September of 2004 I had seen Bush scheduling a three stop bus tour in Texas and then flying to New Hamster, I would have figured we were about to have President Kerry. I’m not ready to say that sort of thing now, but...wow.

Yeah...false alarm, though. This is an AFP bus tour, not El Presidente.

He’s going to be in IL, NH and NM the same day?

No way Obama wins re-election.

He tops out at 43-44% at most.

I agree (actually wishfully thinking he’ll get less); if he is campaigning in his home state, how well is he doing elsewhere?
