Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™

It's Friday Thursday, which means it's time a day early for the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™. Seeing as there's already entries I'm just going to leave the contest up. Enter your best caption for the following picture:

US President Barack Obama tours Orion Energy Systems, a power technology company that designs, manufactures and deploys energy efficiency and renewable energy technology for commercial and industrial business, Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Obama on Wednesday landed in the US electoral battleground to sell his State of the Union message, even as Republicans plotted to undermine it with spending cuts. (AFP/Jewel Samad)

Winners will be announced Monday morning.
