Today in This Post I wrote about the president Atlanta trip and democrats running away from him.

This morning I got the following e-mail from Republican Liz Carter’s campaign:

Carter Commends President Obama for Addressing Wounded Veterans
President Obama First President to Address
Organization Since 1996

(Atlanta) – The Annual Disabled American Veterans National Convention is being held in Atlanta July 31 – Aug 3. The organization, now in its 90th year of service representing America’s disabled veterans, will host President Obama on Monday, August 2nd.

“I applaud President Obama for coming to speak to this organization that does so much good on behalf of our disabled vets and their families,” stated Carter, the Republican nominee for Georgia’s 4th district House of Representatives. “Our wounded warriors are very deserving of our appreciation and gratitude.”

Carter, whose father was a WWII veteran, sits on the advisory board of Operation Homefront and is a member of the Women’s VFW Auxiliary. “Our veterans have made enormous sacrifices and our troops continue to do so around the world. I’m pleased that the President is attending the convention to honor their service.”

Carter also expressed her hope that, “…this visit will help remind those in Congress of the importance of addressing the needs of our veterans and treating our military with the utmost respect.”

While in Georgia, President Obama will also be fundraising for the Democrat National Committee. When asked about the president’s fundraising appearance Carter commented, “I’m sure President Obama is very aware of how vulnerable certain Georgia seats are in this November’s election.”

How bad are things for this President? He has to rely on republican candidates for congress to give him credit when credit is due.

Memeorandum thread on the President’s remarks here.

Hit the Monastary of the Holy Spirit this morning (wonderful place), had a long interview with Cory Ruth (r), toured the World of Coca Cola museum took more photos of houses and managed to get caught in the same thunderstorm twice in one day, once in Atlanta and once back here.

I’m currently washing clothes and getting ready for final packing of both the clothes and some stuff for the family. I’m hoping to hit one more event in the morning if possible. I have several posts that I’m working on concerning the trip and hoping to do a long round up of what I saw and thought.

My stomach is going to miss this place badly but I suspect my arteries will not.

You might have noticed btw that I have very few video interviews of individuals even though that is my normal practice. For whatever reason people though willing to talk were reluctant to appear on video outside of events.

That has been a very productive trip. Starting on Monday we will discover what the prospects are of me taking any others.
