    Elected officials say no thanks to Obama invite

    Elected officials say no thanks to Obama invite - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

    Quote(Congressmen Jason Altmire and Tim Murphy have previous engagements. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. and Rep. Mike Doyle are out of town on anniversary trips with their wives. Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato will be campaigning in Philadelphia.

    When President Obama and Sen. Arlen Specter land at Pittsburgh International Airport today, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl will receive them by himself.

    The rest of the region's top elected officials declined White House invitations to attend Obama's speech at Carnegie Mellon University this afternoon, their offices said.)

    At one time it was considered a great honor to be invited by the President to attend a speech he was giving.

    Evidently nowadays it is considered to be the kiss of death!
