It's official -- Obama to be here to open Q-C office

Sen. Barack Obama will preside over the opening of a Quad-Cities office at 2:15 p.m. Friday. Location is 1911 52nd Ave., Moline.

Office hours are likely to be 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Press aide Tommy Vietor said there are no staffing decisions to be announced yet.

"This new office will give thousands in Northwestern Illinois the ability to speak face-to-face with a member of my staff about the issues that affect their daily lives. I'm extremely excited about this opportunity and look forward to taking this step to help me better serve my constituents in the Quad Cities and all of Northwestern Illinois," the senator said in a news release issued this afternoon.

One caveat -- Sen. Obama's Q-C visit may fall off the schedule if his presence is required in D.C. to vote on pending legislation.

It kills me that when someone does nothing so that he doesn't affend anyone they are heralded a champ and when someone tries to get something done they are considered a chump. Thats the problem with the mass media that we have today. One presidential speech and then duck and cover this is what looks good to the people through the press eyes.
