It's been a rough spell for the Windy City White House. Besides the Gulf oil spill, Obama has been dealing with the upcoming mid-term elections, those pesky Tea Party folks, and the ongoing (and growing) immigration debate in the wake of the state of Arizona's new controversial law. Speaking to donors at a fundraiser earlier this week, Obama said, "I know it's been 18 tough months. And I know I've got more gray hair. I know some folks say, 'Well, you know, he's not as cool as he was.' When they had all the posters around and everything. Now I've got a Hitler mustache on the posters. That's quite a change."
As for the trip home, according to the President's schedule, the First Family will depart Washington D.C. at 6 p.m. Chicago time, arriving at O'Hare airport at approximately 7:15 p.m. tonight.
