Big news: In 10 days, President Obama is hitting the campaign trail.

Obama is going to be knocked off his game when Ron Paul emerges as the nominee. They'll have to write all new scripts for him.

Big news: In 10 days, President Obama is hitting the campaign trail.

On Saturday, May 5th, the President and First Lady Michelle Obama are holding the first two public rallies of the campaign in Columbus, Ohio, and Richmond, Virginia. He'll speak about how far we've come, and lay out the very real stakes in this election: Are we going to continue to move forward, rebuilding an economy that's meant to last, with a growing middle class and more Americans getting a fair shot? Or are we going to go back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy and left too many folks struggling to catch up? That's the choice.

These kinds of events are one of the hallmarks of this organization. Millions of people first came to know and support candidate Barack Obama in 2007 and 2008 when they met him at rallies and town halls in their communities. We're now entering the general election of his final campaign -- this day should be something pretty special.

The President would like two supporters from across the country and their guests to meet him backstage before he goes on at the first rally. Supporters like you are the core of this campaign -- so we're opening this up to anyone willing to sign up.

Right now, by signing up to receive important campaign updates on your phone, you will be automatically entered to join the President backstage.

What we're looking at right now is essentially the start of a general election. We've all but got our opponent. This is what we've been building for since we launched this campaign last April -- and we're ready to go.

I can tell you the President can't wait to get out there.

You really can't lose on this one: As part of our mobile community, you'll be sure to hear about events near you, when the President will be in your area, and other campaign news.

And signing up right now just might land you the chance to meet President Obama backstage before he starts firing folks up.

Want to be there with him? Sign up for text updates -- and be automatically entered for you and a guest to meet him backstage:

I wonder if the people who

I wonder if the people who meet him back stage are the ones who end up fainting at his rallies. Obama, "Spssst, Okay when I give you two the key word, she faints and you catch her. I will them promptly throw you a bottle of water." Back Stage Greeters, "Um okay, whatever you say your Excellency." Later that night, Back Stage Greeters ,"Wow, we helped the Messiah out so much, people believe we actually fainted. I wonder how much we can sell this water for on Ebay, it has His Excellency's DNA on it." Obama to his wife Michelle, “Wow how willfully ignorant my supporters are. They will do anything to get me to win, and that includes lying cheating and stealing. The best part is, they think they are doing right. What a bunch of sad saps.”
