Thanks ChristiMtl – I suspect Krugman will be deeply disappointed if Joe Gagnon is right 😉

Tuesday: The President will tape an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” before departing for San Francisco. In San Francisco, he will participate in a campaign event. In the afternoon the President will travel to Denver and participate in campaign events. He will spend Tuesday night in Denver.

Text of the President’s remarks at today’s campaign event at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas here

“Their leader, Mitch McConnell said that – and I’m going to make sure I quote this properly – saving jobs of teachers and firefighters was just, and I quote, a bailout. A bailout! These aren’t bad actors who somehow screwed up the economy. They didn’t act irresponsibly. These are the men and women who teach our children and patrol our streets and run into burning buildings and save people. They deserve our support.”

The Boston Globe: President Obama paid a quick but rewarding visit to Boston yesterday, rallying supporters at a pair of fund-raisers to energize a Democratic stronghold and bolster his campaign coffers … Obama addressed a crowd of 900 at the Boston Center for the Arts in the South End before dining with big-money benefactors at the Brookline home of advertising executive Jack Connors Jr.

The evening event, which couples paid $35,800 to attend, was expected to raise more than $2 million, part of an aggressive fund-raising drive since Obama formally launched his reelection campaign last month. With its deep reservoir of Democratic donors, Massachusetts will probably play a major role in the party’s fund-raising efforts.

On Tremont Street, where hundreds waited in a cold rain in hopes of a glimpse of the president at the arts center, support for Obama was unconditional…..

…Before Obama spoke, Boston Celtics star Ray Allen likened the Obama campaign to a sports team that needed a focused effort to succeed. “Our colors are red, white, and blue. Our coach is Obama,’’ he said.

…Outside the fund-raiser, the small crowds that huddled under the trees to stay dry were surprised to learn that the president’s motorcade had arrived early, beating them to the spot.

“I’m in the doghouse,’’ said Jeremy Kindall, who brought his two young daughters to see Obama. “We’re going to send him a picture and say ‘Sorry we missed you.’ ’’ Hannah, age 8, however, sounded more than sorry. “Well, I was really, really, really, really excited until we found out we missed him,’’ she said. “Then I was pretty much entirely disappointed.’’ 😆
