Unicorn Rider to the Rescue… Obama Will Fly to Beantown to Save Coakley
The White House is clearly worried Martha Coakley could lose next week’s special U.S. Senate election to Republican Scott Brown.
President Obama will now visit Massachusetts before Tuesday to help her campaign, the Associated Press is reporting.
The timing of the visit is uncertain.
Earlier Friday, he recorded a robocall for her.
Listen: The Obama robocall
Here’s the script, which was released this morning.
Hi, this is President Barack Obama. I rarely make these calls and I truly apologize for intruding on your day. But I had to talk to you about the election in Massachusetts on Tuesday because the stakes are so high.
In Washington, I’m fighting to curb the abuses of a health insurance industry that routinely denies care. I’m fighting for financial reforms to stop Wall Street from playing havoc with our economy. I’m fighting to create a new clean energy economy and it’s clear now that the outcome of these and other fights will probably rest on one vote in the United States Senate.
We know where Martha Coakley stands. As your attorney general, Martha has taken on Wall Street’s schemes, insurance company abuses and big polluters on your behalf. She represents the best progressive values of Massachusetts. She’ll be your voice and my ally.
But a lot of people don’t even realize there is an election on Tuesday to fill the unexpired term of Ted Kennedy. They don’t realize why it’s so important. So please, come out to vote for Martha Coakley. And make sure everyone you know understands the stakes for their families, Massachusetts and our country.
The Chicago Olympics, Corzine, Creigh Deeds… Will Coakley be next?
…Let’s hope Boston is the Copenhagen of the West.

I hear Clinton will be in Boston too, maybe Obama will serve him coffee.
