Reverse Midas Touch: Feingold, students avoid Obama in Wisconsin; Update: Poll – Feingold down by 8; Feingold comes through?; Obama the scold

Lonely, he’s Mr. Lonely…but at least he’ll always have TOTUS.

Yep, looks like President Obama’s reverse Midas Touch is kicking in again today. The White House appears to be scrounging for rally attendees. Via Fox News:

The president is headed to Madison as part of a series of rallies in swing states leading up to the election. But where he drew a crowd of 17,000 at the University of Wisconsin in 2008 during the presidential race, crowds are expected to be significantly smaller this time around — so much so that the president’s campaign team, Organizing for America, is sending out RSVP requests for Tuesday’s rally, featuring musician Ben Harper.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do between now and November 2nd to keep moving America forward. But this movement has never backed down from a tough fight. I hope you can join me. If you haven’t already, please RSVP here. Hope to see you there, President Barack Obama,” reads the e-mail distributed Monday by Organizing for America.

A senior Democratic Party official on Tuesday rejected the contention that the room may be tough to fill…

One definite no-show? Democrat Sen. Russ Feingold, who will be avoiding Obama for the third time in his state:

It may take more than a four-percentage-point “flip” for Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold to turn around this election year. The three-term Democratic senator finds himself in a surprisingly tight race against businessman Ron Johnson, who’s up 8 percentage points in a Sept. 25 Fox News/Pulse Opinion Research poll. Several other races are showing similar margins.

Feingold was not to attend Tuesday’s rally with Obama, but Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine told CBS’s “The Early Show” that it is not a slight.

No, not a slight. A full-throttle diss. Feingold cut and ran on Labor Day, when Obama appeared with AFL-CIO thug-in-chief Richard Trumka in Milwaukee, and also dodged Obama at an earlier summer event.

You know who’s fault this all is, don’t you?

Ask Thurston.


Update: Latest Fox News poll shows Feingold down by 8. Ouch.

Doctor Zero quips: “Who’d win a race, Sestak running away from Toomey or Feingold running away from Obama?”

Update: Feingold tweets that he WILL appear with Obama. Damage control.

Update: Allah’s got the rundown on Bitter Barry’s scolding lecture to the young people who showed up.

Fired up…or feeling burnt?
