But no, the Obama campaign isn’t worried, it says.
Vice President Biden made a pit stop today in Cleveland on his way from Delaware to Chicago for what he hopes will be a victory celebration with President Obama. The Obama campaign claims the visit, in which Biden visited a restaurant with a mostly black clientele, was an “unannounced but long-scheduled stop.”
A Biden pool reporter said he could see Romney’s and Paul Ryan’s plane from Biden. The “long-scheduled trip,” you see, just happened to put Biden in the same city as Romney and Ryan.
Just yesterday, Obama campaign Press Secretary Jen Psaki dissed Mitt Romney for heading to Ohio today:
I will say it’s no surprise that Mitt Romney is headed to Ohio, or reportedly headed to Ohio tomorrow. Without that state it’s a rocky road for them to victory — an insurmountable road, I would say.
Hmmm. It is indeed a rocky road to victory without Ohio. For both camps. But interrupting Obama’s schedule would have looked like something might be wrong with the Master Plan.
Maybe basketball in Chicago wasn’t such a great idea after all. That’s President Obama big event for the day, until he speaks tonight, when he may wish he’d put Air Force One on the tarmac in Cleveland too.
