Another Obama photo op. Will be great to hear him tell how the recession is over and the recovery is underway.

I don't think anyone is going to be able to even get close to that factory . . . I bet this whole region already has a gazillion Secret Service, FBI and who knows what other agency personnel roaming the streets and tapping our phones, lol.

I sure haven't seen any big welcome sign saying - "Y'all come on down and meet your President." I think they probably won't let anyone close - and can't say I blame them. Crowd control can be a real problem anytime a President comes to town.

Most people only ever get to see the President through the lens of Mr Television. I highly recommend that if you get a chance to see and hear a sitting President speak that you do so whether you agree with him and his party or not. The perspective and experience is quite different. When I have done this, and I have gone to see Presidents that I did not vote for, I am always glad that I did and I learned something that I didn't expect. Will it change your life? Probably not, but it is an opportunity for a unique experience even if the only thing that you get out of it is that you can tell your grand kids that you saw the president in person.

Presidents in general, since I have lived here, have not paid much attention to Charlotte, so for me personally it's at least nice that we get some attention on these lines for a change.

No, but they do have their protest location and times tomorrow all mapped out. So while they won't necessarily be near Celgard, they'll be somewhere not too far away.

Does anyone know what time his visit is scheduled for? I've read "mid-day" and "morning". We are supposed to fly out for vacation tomorrow and we're really hoping not to get tangled up in all of this.

I've flown through Philly and Memphis when Air Force One was flying through at different points. There typically is only a half hour delay. It's fairly minimal. Out of Philly I think it pushed me flight 45 minutes and they are much busier than CLT.

Though to be honest, there's nothing you can really do at this point.

I would suggest arriving early since we're going into the holiday weekend. I'd also recommend going through the D Concourse Security Checkpoint. If you don't like D. Go to C. Avoid A and B like the plague regardless of which terminal you're leaving out of.
