Barack Obama is back across the border in northeastern Ohio today, less than a month since his post-Independence Day bus tour of Ohio and Pittsburgh, which ended at CMU.

Jackie Calmes at the NYT notes he's flying into a controversy around Mansfield and Akron that should sound familiar to Pittsburghers worried about the 911th in Moon:

But Mr. Obama was flying, literally, into a controversy in Mansfield that Republicans, led by Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, a potential running mate for Mr. Romney, were only too happy to fan. According to local media, Air Force One was landing at an air base that is home to the 179th Air National Guard Wing, which would be mothballed under the Obama administration’s proposed postwar reductions in Pentagon spending.
